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...
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.
Summary: I ordered this player because it is well integrated with AQUOS TV product line. There are not too many differentiating factors among Blu-ray players from various manufacturers. This one is made in Malaysia, but SHARP says that all critical components are made by SHARP. BD-HP20U is very sleek.
For the money, this player definitely delivers quality and speed.

Summary: I recently reviewed my Sony BDP-S300 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player , which gave me an insurmountable amount of quirkiness. In that review I commented at length about firmware updates (and more updates and more updates) to which finally spelled doom for my player.
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.
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!
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...
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.
Summary: Bought this quite a few months ago and have been running as many BDs (oh, DVDs and CDs as well) thru it as humanly possible. So far it's worked like a champ...no burps, farts, or hiccups. The BD load times are the shortest I've seen.....and I've watched quite a few at our local Best Buy outlet.
Summary: I ordered the Sharp Blu Ray player for two reasons First, I had seen overwhelmingly positive reviews both here and at other sites on the web, and second, I own a Sharp Aquos TV (LC37D62U) and I have been impressed with its performance.
