Sharp BD-HP52U


Like many of the latest Blu-ray players, Sharp's BD-HP52U ($299.99 list) handles high definition video with aplomb, and also does a good job upconverting standard-def DVDs. Sharp HDTV owners will appreciate this player's Aquos Link functionality, but...

Solid HD image quality. Good SD-upconversion quality. Well-designed remote. Excellent Sharp Aquos HDTV integration

Expensive. Limited features. Slow load times. No front-accessible USB port. Lacks integrated Wi-Fi

The Sharp BD-HP52U Blu-ray player delivers an excellent Blu-ray picture and does a good job of upconverting standard-definition DVDs, but it lacks some of the features that you get with less-expensive players.

Product Specifications

The BD-HP52U supports BD-ROM Profile 2.0 for BD Live interactive features through an Ethernet jack-enabled Internet connection. Users can download and stream bonus content such as additional scenes, shorts, trailers and multi-player interactive games, providing the consumer full access to content otherwise unattainable. The BD-HP52U enables superior video quality with state-of-the-art HDMI 1.3 digital output with x.v. color, and 1920 x 1080 video at 24 frames per second output, matching the playback of the original film. This feature eliminates the need for frame-rate conversion that can cause motion artifacts on film-based material and degrade image quality. To further improve the image quality, the BD-HP52U incorporates deep color, which extends the maximum number of colors for each color component, reducing and in some cases eliminating color component artifacts. For the best high-definition video and the highest fidelity audio in home theater today, the BD-HP52U features AQUOS link, enabling a simple one-cable connection via HDMI to carry a complete digital audio and video connection between the HDTV and the BD-HP52U player.
