A solid Blu-ray spinner with some minor flaws

Hi-def icture quality ; Ease of use

Profile 1.1 ; No DTS HD Master Audio decoding or MP3 ; WMA ; DiVX layback

Sharp BD-HP21H


Still, at least there are plenty of other features to make up for it, right? Wrong. The HP21H won't play DivX, MP3 or WMA files, lacks DTS HD Master Audio decoding and omits multichannel analogue outputs.

This Blu Ray player gives a fantastic picture as you would expect from the 1080p output but it reminds of the dvd players from 10 years ago. Very slow to load up discs and will only fast forward or rewind at twice the speed of normal. Seems well bulit...
