Sharp BD-HP20H Blu-ray Player


From trade show to consumer, Sharp has finally set free its first UK Blu-ray deck. Is it all good?

Sharp Aquos BD-HP20H review


Sharp's first Blu-ray Disc player, the Sharp BD-HP20H is a winner on all counts.

Where it really counts, the Sharp Aquos BD-HP20H is one great Blu-ray Disc player.
