Sharp BD-HP20 review

 

Let's cut to the chase: Sharp isn't the first name you think of when someone talks about disc players. It might have a fine reputation for flatscreen TVs, but the Japanese giant has always struggled to compete with the likes of Denon, Pioneer and Sony...

The HP20 is perfect for Sharp Aquos owners – but is its spec and performance good enough to reel in other hi-def punters?

A decent enough deck, and if you’re looking for a player to partner your Sharp TV, you’ll be happy – but it's not ideal for home cinema enthusiasts chasing an all-rounder

Easy to set up & install 5.1 Audio Output Digital Output Upgradable firmware through USB Amazing Quality i.e. Dark Knight, Watchmen

No region unlock for DVD's Takes a while to load (I've heard this is common with most blu-ray players because of the size of data on discs).

Good picture and sound quality Good price

Not many extra features Sometimes discs won't play or they freeze - could be a problem with the rented discs though
