User Review

Eric R., Newegg
20 April 2008
  • Summary: I wish I had more Blu Ray movies and the time to watch them.
  • Pros: Great picture quality and does a fantastic job of upscaling standard DVDs. The sound quality is much better than my DVD player that it replaced. It shouldn't be based on the numbers but it sure sounds twice as good. I notice subtle sounds that I never new were there before. I also notice much mor...
  • Cons: If you forget and shut the machine off with a dvd or BD disk inserted. When you start the unit up and try to play it will run at a slow motion frame rate. You have to shut it down and start it again with no disk to resolve this.

Great Player

Sciggy, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: This player is fantastic. It does not have that long of a load time for any disc that I have put into it, whether new or old blu ray or sd dvd. Picture and sound is amazing. Only draw back is to get the HD audio you have to use either the multi channel output or HDMI(which is this way for all blu...

Great player for the $$$

C. Lycke, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this player because I am a Sharp Aquos TV owner and I can say it was the easiest setup I have ever had to do, including my DVD player. I hooked it up using a midgrade HDMI cable ($50, Radio Shack) and I was watching Blu-Rays in 5 minutes once the cable was connected.

HD Heaven

G. Leach, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: Got this Blu-ray player at a great price just before Toshiba threw in the towel as the writing was writ large on the wall. The only down side to Blu-ray over HD-DVD is the pain of region coding. Very consumer unfriendly. I'm sure very wealth enhancing for the studios!

Great Product!

R. Ishii, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: I was a little concerned at first of buying a blu-ray player at the bottom of the price scale. Particularly after reading some of the complaints others had with this model. After playing a few discs though, I am very happy with the purchase.

blueray player

Joseph M. Vles, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: I also have a Sharp Aquos HD TV, and together, they make an excellent home theatre combination. 1 cable only; setup takes less than 30 seconds once you have the device out of the box. The player also attempts to up-convert standard DVDs, so that those produce more clarity and sharpness.

Sharp Aquos trumps Samsung P1500

Scuba Sensei, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: Returned Samsung P1500 for Sharp Aquos HP20U. OMG - what a difference. Biggest problems with P1500: 1 - No second digital audio source. Already using Optical for TV digital sound and amp only has one, but Sharp had a Coax Digital that matched up perfectly (like my upconvert had done), 2 - Sharp...

Guess I got lucky

David Bond, Amazon
31 January 2008
  • Summary: After reading some of the negative reviews of this player, I was a bit leery about purchasing it and withheld comment until I'd put a good 50 hours on it. But the Sharp works just dandy. It arrived in basically plug-and-play configuration.

Blu-Ray

Fred Harris, Amazon
30 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this product for 299.99, stunning colors and great all around picture quality, even the dvd upscaling makes my non Blu-ray dvd's look great. I haven't tried to play any audio cd' on them but if some of you are having problems go to the sharp website and maybe the software updates may help.

Sharp Aquos BDHP20U 1080p Blu-Ray Disc Player

YS 61, Amazon
30 January 2008
  • Summary: This is a superb Disk Player!! I've had mine about 2 months with GREAT RESULTS! Of course the Blu-Ray playback is awesome. Boot-up is fairly fast also! Beyond that, it really does a great job upconverting my original DVD's to have a MUCH sharper picture than before.
