GOOD QUALITY BLU RAY PLAYER!
Member Name: dugmorew89
Advantages: Great picture, vibrant colours
Disadvantages: Problems with playback on some blu rays but can be solved with firmware update.
As this was one of the first blu ray plaers I have to be honest that I did not expect it to be the greatest Blu ray player. However I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up the packaging and put it on for the very first time. This blu ray player has some great features such as 'Full High Definition' playback and 'Dolby True HD Sound' so you are able to get the best out of the blu ray's that you purchase. The first blu ray that I tried was 'The Matrix' and what a way to begin my blu ray collection. I put it on along with my 19 inch Samsung HD TV and I was blown away. The very first things I noticed was the detail in colour and the detail in the character's skin. By this I mean you can see skin tone clearer and you get see little details such as spots, scars, sweat, etc. This was not seen on the DVD of 'The Matrix' because I decided to comapre the two and the blu ray won by miles. The only problems I have had with this player is the fact some blu rays freeze for around 5 seconds and then play again but this is due to the fact this is an earlier blu ray player. However I have been told that you can now download a firmware update via the Sharp website in order to solve this problem on some of the blu rays.
Summary: Good blu ray player that can play full high definiton blu rays.
