Good features, sluggish response on Blu-Ray discs.
 
I bought this to go with my new Sharp LCD LED TV. I plugged the Blu-Ray player in via HDMI, and the TV recognizes it and takes care of all the settings, which is nice. The upscaling on non-Blu-Ray discs makes a noitceable difference. The unit has Youtube access, and Netflix access, although I have not used the Netflix on it because I already have that setup on my Sharp LCD LED TV. Blu-Ray discs take awhile to load and also to eject, which is annoying when you just trying to take the disc out. Re...

what a poor bluray player
 
I haven't written a review for a while but I felt it my duty to let people know how useless the player was. Very unexpected from Sharp. I got mine on a sale new for less than seventy bucks but its STILL not worth the aggravation and I took it back, I was happy even to pay the restocking fee.There is no comparison to my PS3 or the Sony DBP-S370 which I would totally recommend over this by a long way - please see my review on that item.Good points, the box it came in was th...

Firmware is important
 
I just bought this player on sale for 99 bucks. I was a bit nervous because of all the horrendous reviews. However, all worked fine for me. It seems when the unit was new it was pretty buggy. [...]Our unit has an (A) appended to the model ID, this appears to be because many of the firmware updates were included with this model; notice on sharp webpage I linked to the update is only for the original model, and we had no problems whatsoever with NetFlix.If you can get this for ...

worse value than sea monkeys
 
yep....this product can only be compared to sea monkeys in the "promise and deliver" department. Consistant errors in reading Bluray discs and Netflix streaming. Worst of all if you use this for Netflix odds are you'll need to go buy a 2GB thumb drive to update the latest firmwear applications (required by to play Netflix instant) or you'll be without Netflix. I've had this for 2 months and it's ruined more movie nights than it's created. This is a massive pile of fail!

Ridiculous menu design, unreadable, cannot select bigger font.
 
We took the region free version of the same device. With DVD's from 3 'regions' our options are fewer: We have to hunt for a multi region device. Our old Yamakawa has died and so we looked for a replacement, of course now supporting the Blue Ray disks as well. Our choice was this Sharp, because they have also quite acclaimed flat screen TV's and we thought, maybe we will switch the brand and our next will be also a Sharp. We did not even went as far as to Netflix, lets talk rather about the plai...

Great Value
 
The HP24U Blu-ray Disc player is a high quality player. Not only in Picture quality, which is fantastic,but also in Customer Support.Their available 7 days a week with a real person thAT YOU can speak with. I had to make the "support call" this past Sat. evening (rather late). My netflix Blu-ray disc.was not playing well. As it turned out after speaking with a very knowledgeable and patient young lady at Sharpusa- Customer Support,it seems my new Blu-ray disc player need to be update...

Uh yeah. Guess I should just build a media PC
 
This player is slow as molasses when it does work. Neflix takes forever to load que and display images. This is not a network issue as other media players I have work fine. Including a prior samsung blueray player that bricked and a WDlive. Obviously I was hesitant to go with another samsung and figured I would give sharp a try. When a blueray works ( about 50%) of the time it take forever to load say like 45 seconds to a minute. So basically I have half way decent upscaling DVD player with cra...

Don't waste your money
 
Fortunately it came free with my purchase of a Sharp Aquos HDTV. Would never have kept it otherwise. Slow to load DVDs and forget Netflix. Not even worth it free.

Not quite there yet
 
I bought this blu-ray player to compliment my Sharp LCD tv. The netflix functionality was a big selling point for me. I have had no issues with picture quality or disc playing. There was a noticeable (beneficial) difference when using Aquos link.Unfortunately, I've run into several annoyances with the netflix functionality, as well as having trouble getting updates directly from the internet.Additionally, it seemed strange that the netflix functionality was pushed to its own page instead of j...

Could be better, could be worse
 
Pros:- Does a good job of upconverting standard DVDs- Does a good job of upconverting streaming NetFlix videos (I'm on 3Mb/sec internet service and 42" LCD. Picture is crisp.)
