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: 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.
Just barely acceptable - Tip for entering your network password

Summary: If you only play discs with this player, you'll have no serious problems, only that it might be a bit slow to react. If you want to connect it to a wireless home network, you'll face the most unfriendly interface I have ever encountered. Very non intuitive. Here's a tip: When you get to the screen where you must enter your network password, make sure that box is highlighted and then press enter (that's right, you must press enter before you can enter anything).
