Summary: When I first bought this product my wife and I were disappointed at the load times. Certain Blu Ray disks can take up to 5 minutes or more to load. It works well with normal DVDs. However - a few nights ago after about three weeks of use it started to cut off Netflix every 10 minutes or so.
Summary: First things first. This review comes several months after the purchase. I wanted to wait and see if Sharp would tend to and rectify one of the issues I was having with the WiFi connectivity, or I should say, the lack thereof.
Summary: In spite of the lackluster reviews above I bought the BD-HP70U to go with my Sharp LC-46LE700UN Aquos set. While I agree setting up the WiFi was unwieldy, and it takes one or two tries to access Netflix, I haven't had any of the lockups or freezes mentioned by the other reviewers, and the picture...
Summary: I purchased a Sharp BD-HP70U blu-ray player for use with a Sharp Aquos LCD TV. It has several of the features that I wanted including blu-ray, WiFi, Netflix and Youtube. I opted for Sharp in hopes for maximum remote compatibility. However, remote Compatibility between the TV and BD-HP70U is minimal.
Summary: I was really expecting a top-notch blu-ray player but it's mediocre at best. Bought it to take advantage of the WiFi so I wouldn't have to run more cables but the connection is spotty. While I can't rule out my router or ISP, every other WiFi product I have works fine!
