Sharp BD-HP 21 S

19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Taken purely as a Blu-ray player, the Sharp performs excellently: Movies and HDTV documentaries appear in the best Full HD quality. If, however, you value DVD playback, you'd better look elsewhere - the Sharp performs poorly in this respect. The lack of BD-Live support also costs the player valuable points.
  • Pros: Excellent 24p-movie picture., Bitstream output of HD audio., Outstanding photo playback.
  • Cons: Poor DVD playback., No decoder for DTS-HD audio., No BD-Live., No analog 5.1-channel audio output.

Sharp BD-HP21U review

23 December 2008
  • Summary: Sharp's second-generation Blu-ray Disc player just doesn't impress. The Sharp BD-HP21U does the job without frills, and without oomph.

Sharp BD-HP21H

What Hi-Fi?
14 March 2010
  • Excerpt: While the likes of Sony, Panasonic and Pioneer have been adding to the Blu-ray player population at quite a steady rate, it's fair to say that Sharp 's players are yet to really make their mark in the UK market. And, with players like the BD-HP21 it's not difficult to see why. Its feature list is one of the weakest in this sector. It's only Profile 1.1 enabled, which means that you can't access BD-Live functionality available on some Blu-ray discs.
  • Pros: Decent Blu-ray and DVD picture quality
  • Cons: Decent picture quality isn’t enough in this company, low feature-count, sounds bright

  • Excerpt: The Sharp BD-HP21U packs lots of metal - literally. It's a large and heavy Blu-ray Disc player, so much so that you could mistake it for an old Laserdisc player.

Sharp's budget AQUOS BDHP21X Blu-ray player has good looks and performs well. However, there are competing entry-level Blu-ray players that offer more bang for your buck.

  • Summary: Although the Sharp AQUOS BDHP21X Blu-ray player provides good image quality and decent DVD upscaling, the lack of an Ethernet port for BD-Live is a shame. Other budget Blu-ray players offer the same level of quality and better features for a lower price.
  • Pros: Good Blu-ray movie playing quality, good DVD upscaling, nice design
  • Cons: No Ethernet port for BD-Live

  • Summary: A Sharp pillanatnyilag egyetlen vasat tart csak a tűzben, ugyanis egyetlen Blu-ray lejátszója van a piacon. A Sharp a BD-HP21S-sel sem a legolcsóbb, sem a legjobb modell címére nem pályázik: a készülék tudása és ára alapján is a középmezőnybe tartozik.
