Excerpt: Avoid this Blu-Ray Player. When I first purchased this player and set it up, I put in a movie and waited for it to finish reading the disk. After three minutes or so, another message came up that said I had an incompatible disk in the player. What? I …
Summary: We purchased the BDHP20U as part of a package deal with the HDTV. Our first player would lock up within the first minute of loading any movie. I returned the unit to Best Buy thinking I was unlucky with the first unit.
Summary: I've had my BDHP20u for nearly one year. Rent Netflix videos, watch 5-10 monthly and have only had 1 video not play in the last 11 months. The Blu-Ray is not a recorder in the sense of a VCR, instead it is actually a computer that has a large hard-drive in it that you store your movies on.
Summary: Maybe I have the only good BDHP20u ever made or you guys don't know what your doing. Sure there is wait time. Don't all BD's have that? I own over 50 new blurays and my BDHP20u can play every one. Possibly you guys don't realize this is NEW technology and shit will happen. Patience!
Summary: This has to be one of the worst purchases I've made in recent memory. Claims to have Quick Start functionality but this only applies if the movie has already been pre-loaded and the machine is waiting on standby, which is useless unless youre going to watch the same movie continuously.
Summary: This is a very slow operating player. When first turned on it takes a full 45 seconds to initialize. When a disc is inserted it takes another 30 seconds to figure out what type of media it is playing. While it is "changing gears", you see static, good old black and white no signal type of static...
Summary: Won't play several movies. Firmware updates have been non-existent, customer service is useless. I will NEVER buy another product from Sharp ever again. Absolute garbage. Stay as far away from this company as possible.
Summary: I have had this for about a year with minimal problems. I picked up a Blu Ray copy of Young Frankenstein but it will not play anything but the title screen. Sharp has not released a new firmware update to make this and a few other titles playable.
