Summary: I bought this blu-ray player, because i have a Sharp TV. It works great, and the picture on the TV from it is clear, even though my TV is an LCD. They work hand and hand together. My TV is 5yrs old, and is in perfect working order.
Not bad for playing Blu rays but tends to freeze with Netflix
30 April 2013
Summary: It really is a good player especially if your using it with a Sharp Aquos, however even if your extremely careful when streaming from the Netflix app it will tend to freeze. Also it has trouble with software updates over WiFi so it has to be plugged in to be updated. Other than that it is easy to use and has amazing quality. Also I have found that the more you use the Netflix app it tends to freeze less over time.
Summary: First, don't be fooled by the "all region" DVD feature. It doesn't play DVDs from all regions, it plays "all region" (or no-region) DVDs. Quite a difference. Menu is lack luster, and overall performance is sluggish. Ouputs are digital only with no component or composite outputs for video, and no analog audio capability. If playing Blu Ray discs from other countries is not a priority, then this is one to avoid.
Summary: I tried to play "The girl with the Dragon Tattoo" last night on my Sharp BD-HP21U that I purchased 2 years ago. It wouldn't play. This is not a new occurrence with this player. It played fine on my LG, BD670 Wi-Fi Blu Ray player, which I bought because of the trouble I've had with the Sharp player. I checked the Microcode updates for the Sharp.
Summary: I got this player for free when I bought my new TV so I guess I can't complain about the price. The player works great it just seems to be loud at times during BLU-RAY playback. It makes a humming noise that almost sounds like a old hard drive trying to boot up. Other than that it works fine.
Summary: Don't buy it. Suuupppeerrr slow have a sony that logs on to Netflix about 20 times faster (not exaggerating) with a super cool-looking menu and was more affordable. This one keeps going on sale no wonder there's like 10,000 left in the store. I'm returning it.
Summary: This player is a major disappointment. I feel like I threw my money away. Player freezes during playback. The load times are so long I had time to pop in a disc and drop a loaf before the disc even loaded. The menu looks like some kinda cheap design from an old Beta-Max player from the 80's. You have to hook up a dongle for Wifi and it constantly drops signal and there's no internal storage so if you plan on using Bd Live you'll have to hook up a flash drive.
Summary: I bought a Sharp LC60LE835U 60" a few months ago & wanted a Sharp Bluray player to help unlock its potential. I researched the Bluray players Sharp currently makes on their website & found that there is a large price range ($99-$500). Despite the variance in price, I could not discern a difference in performance or features, save the one that includes a 5.1 audio system. They have the same applications, file compatibilities, wireless, connection options, etc.
