Excellent Bluray Player

Sting Ray, Amazon
29 April 2011
  • Summary: I purchase this player in April 2011. This player plays every Bluray movie I rented. When I recieved the player I imediately updated the firmware from Sharps website. You must do this or newer Blurays will not play.

  • Summary: Last Christmas I received this unit as a gift. The two blu-ray movies inluded as part of my gift were not playable. About half of the Netflix blu-ray disks take about 5 to 10 minutes to load and most are not playable.

Not happy

Gary, Amazon
12 October 2010
  • Summary: I am very unhappy with Bluray. I got the Sharp Aquos TV and matching player and they won't play about 20 percent of the movies I want to watch including Avatar. Apparently I am supposed to "update the firmware"! Well I don't have the internet at home.

You do not want this DVD player

Mark Ramsey, Amazon
30 September 2010
  • Summary: First of all, this device is no longer supported by Sharp. Meaning their firmware updates (which seem to be required constantly) are spotty. The last one was months ago, and I just dropped in a new BluRay disc, got all the way through the trailers, and watched a black screen for minutes on end as...

J. R. Guzman, Amazon
29 April 2010
  • Summary: Friends I gave this to are really liking it so I can't really say anything bad. It's hard to find a BluRay player w/ a component output since they don't make them anymore.

sharp bd player

Benjamin B. Wells, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: At first I was a little concerned because it didn't play Fargo (the first movie I tried). I read up on it and downloaded the software update, after that everything has played smoothly. The player took a long time to read the discs at first but after the update it reads twice as fast.

Average at best

Amazonian, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: It took one month to deliver this dvd player. I dunno if it was a screw up in the shipping database or what but I will not count this towards my opinion on this item. This player is really slow, and one in every five discs that I put in, it makes this constant repetitively loud clicking sound that...
