Summary: received the dvd player really quick in the mail, was very happy with the savings and quality of this product. The only negative thing I have to say is that it takes almost 2 minutes for this BlueRay player to read BlueRay discs and almost 5 minutes to read regular DVD's before actually seeing...
Summary: I bought this for far less than what it's being offered now. Most people told me to wait, for the new profile, but honestly.. I just watch movies. I don't do any of the extra games, and such on blu-rays.
Summary: The reason I decided to purchase this particular Blu-Ray player was because of the USB interface which was the best option for me for downloading the lastest software, as I have my Blue-Ray sitting in a rack in my home theatre which is not located close to an ethernet connection.
Summary: I know many people have had many problems with this player, but as for me, I have none as of yet. The player plays beautifully out of the box. Pretty much plug-n-play. It does take a little longer to start up than my Toshiba A30 HD player did. No big deal to me as long as I get to watch my movie.
Summary: I purchased the Sharp BD HP20U partially because I have a Sharp AQUOS HDTV, partically because of the reviews vs the SONY, and partially because of the price. The Good: Plays Blu Ray disc and DVD movies quite well. Very quiet and reasonably attractive.
Summary: >>>UPDATE<<<< THERE IS A NEW FIRMWARE DOWNLOAD ON THE SHARP WEBSITE. EASY TO INSTALL. Still love this player.I happened to open it up to look at the components. Very impressive. Looks more like a computer than a media player. I still can't decide which is better; the picture or the sound....
Stunning Blu Ray picture and sound, some CD play back issues.

Summary: Like other reviewers, I purchased this player, my first Blu Ray, to intergrate with my Sharp Aquos TV. I set it up with HDMI cables in less than 5 minutes. The Blu Ray play back is excellent. Beautiful picture and sound. Standard DVDs look great also. Only dissapointment I have is audio CD playback.
