Works great - but beware of the AQUOS LINKJun 10, 2009
Great picture, easy setup, but I agree with D. L..M about the AQUOS LINK. In fact, after reading that review I called Sharp to make sure my TV (1 month old) supports AQUOS LINK before ordering this player. They said it supported this feature so I ordered the player.
After getting the player, I couldn't get the AQUOS LINK function to work. I called back tech support, asked the same question - does this TV support AQUOS LINK? Yes they said. OK, tell me how to make it work. I'm put on hold, they come back after 10 minutes and tell me it is not supported.
So, heads up, these items might indicate your Sharp TV doesn't support AQUOS LINK: The remote doesn't have DVD function buttons, the little feature sticker on the side of your tv didn't say AQUOS LINK or your manual doesn't mention it. I guess that seems obvious, but since tech support said it would work, I just figured this was just a sharp feature that was inherent with the TV's and wasn't anything special.

BewareMay 20, 2009
By D. L..M
If you are thinking about buying this player because you have an AQUOS TV and you want "seamless operability via the AQUOS LINK function through the HDMI connection" ( their words) be advised that it may not work.
It seems that after you purchase this player and try to get the AQUOS LINK to work the Sharp people will tell you it will only work with certain AQUOS TVs
My AQUOS TV is less than a year old and SHARP people told me sorry but it won't work with your set.
I asked them the Sharp customer service why they don't advertise this feature as working with SOME AQUOS TVs but not all, the supervisor said words are words and it's how you take it

Great BD player for the price!Jun 22, 2009
By Mike Ferrando
I've had this player for about 2 months now and I'm happy with this purchase for the most part. I don't have an AQUOS TV so, I can't take advantage of the "Aquos Pure Mode" feature. Also, to date no firmware update exists for this model. The picture and sound quality is great for 1080p video and up to DTSHD 7.1 audio running through my Yamaha home theater system. I would recommend purchasing this unit for anyone's home entertainment enjoyment!

great blue-ray- great priceSep 16, 2009
By Terry E. moreno
easy to match up to my sharp aquos 52" E77U. First blue ray disc I watched was Dark Knight and the sound and picture were fantistic. It uses Aquos Link to automatically adjust the picture for the best possible color and contrast. the only con that I have is that it does'nt pick up the scene that you were watching after you turn off the unit and turn it back on. Other than that I would recommend it to anyone with a Sharp Aquos HDTV.

Good choice for Aquos LinkMay 26, 2009
By W. Scott
The Aquos link works perfectly with a Sharp Aquos LC40E67U LCD TV. The TV remote will control the blueray player including some of the more advanced features such as the setup menu, negating the need to use two remotes 99% of the time. Inserting a Blue Ray disk into the player will automatically turn on the TV and a few other minor convenience features. The blueray player itself is just an average priced profile 2.0 player with nothing remarkable. From what I can determine, this is big step up from the bdhp21u.
