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: Got this blu ray player from Best Buy with a 60" for tv free. Ya no wonder they were giving them away. This is the worst piece of junk that I have ever tried to use. It does work but that is all I can say. The interface is terrible. You can't see it on the tv unless you stand and look down on it. The colors that Sharp has selected have to be the worst for being able to read the textand you can't change them.
Summary: This Blue ray player is supposed to be able to get onto Netflix, but it takes more than 15 minutes to link up. We get on with our Wii which is notoriously slow in less that 2 minutes. Very disappointed.
Summary: I bought this on sale at Fry's. What a mistake. For very basic BluRay discs, it does a fair job of playing them (hence the nominal 2 stars). The interface looks like it was designed in the early 80's, and many discs simply won't play properly on it. Example: Iron Man (first one) - about halfway through, it simply freezes. You will wait and wait and you'll get like 3 frames in 5 minutes. Finally, you stop the disc and eventually you get the atrocious interface back.
