What's the "rubbish" bit of the player please as I've ordered one.

There is nothing "rubbish" about this player, Royals has not explained anything very well at all.

I bought this player some 6 months or more ago from Makro myself for £57, it offered at that particular time very good value.

It is a well built player, offering very good picture and sound quality, however, it is profile 1.1, meaning it will not playback any live content, no ethernet socket (no biggie to me, but to some it may be)

Also its a no frills player, no good for dvd upscaling, no divx compatibility either.

For £57 6 months ago it was a steal, in light of recent sub £100 Blu Ray players that are profile 2 and offer more, at £69 its not the best value now within the timeline moving on, but it certainly does not make it "rubbish", just has dated against the competition pricing and options.

misleading title, looks like the DVD player is £4.95!

This was the comment from audio review

No BD Live support, lacks DivX, MP3 and WMA playback, no DTS HD Master Audio decoding, no multichannel analogue outputs, dull design

The Sony 360 for £79 is a much better buy, but the picture quality of the sharp is not bad if that is your main concern.

Interesting, the site write up says it plays DIVX's.

I can assure you it doesn't, the Sony 360 would offer better value at £79 apart from it has gone up in price now and cannot be found for under £100.

For me personally, I am not bothered currently with a profile 2 player, at £57 this was a steal, I have multiple units, a HD DVD Player, this Blu Ray Player as well as a Universal SACD/DVD-A Player, so for me this was fine.

For anyone looking for an all in one unit, a decent upscaler, a divx player and profile 2 support, with other players hitting under the £100 mark, it may be worth looking elsewhere some 6 months on from this, bearing in mind this player has been deleted and superceeded by the profile 2 BD-HP22H (which also is lacking DIVX or any extra features aside BD Live support)

Can you give a link for the Sony 360, cheapest I can find is £109.

I also got this player for £57 in Makro last year.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with it so far - Great picture and sound.

The only problem I have had is that when I go to resume playback after briefly stopping the movie the player starts booting the disk from scratch! It is quite annoying when some of these disks take a few minutes to load and play!! :x

New question for people who have posted, if someone can supply the £79 Sony link should I cancel my order for the Sharp?

Try reading through your own thread, I already mentioned its no longer available at £79, in post #8

To add further to this, it was available about 3-4 weeks ago at that price from Play.com, Amazon.com price matched it, both deals were extremely hot on here, you should be able to find them both on search including expired deals, but as I stated, currently you cannot get the Sony 360 for under £100

This model does have a USB slot, but it cannot be used for DIVX, it can be used for firmware upgrading and content storage for bonus view disks.

Hot mine from Makro to. Besides the problem you just said, its a great player, no probs or anything. Just make sure you download the latest Firmware from sharps website.

you know what I mean when I say usb slot; who cares about service slot.
I got an LG with a media usb slot in the front. I use that more than I use the player for blu rays and dvds. It is a great asset to have in a blu ray player.

Yes I am aware of that, as I said earlier in the thread, I own this player, I know what it does and doesn't do without others having to reiterate the same points that I have already mentioned!

It does have a USB slot, its a USB slot plain and simple, I do happen to call a spade a spade as well, just so happens that Sharps OS does not utilise the USB slot for media, as I said earlier its used to content storage and firmware upgrades.

And yes I would agree, obviously the USB slot being compatible with DIVX would be great on this player, but thats one of the reasons why personally I don't feel its a great deal at £69, compared to six months ago when I bought it for £57 due to other players price points coming down considerably, and offering far more.

I bought this player (also from Makro) and had to return it as it refused to play a brand new BD disc. That said, my father has one and loves it, so I guess it is a hit / miss model, in that you either get a good one or a bad one.

Perhaps at the time you purchased it Sharp had not got a firmware upgrade compatible with the BD disk in question?

Unfortunately unlike HD DVD, Blu Ray disks are prone to incompatibility problems and firmware updates are necessary across all manufacturers players.

Does this play AVCHD?
