Though it plays blu-ray discs just fine, it has a habit of crashing on exit from Netflix and VuDu. The only way to get out of the crash is to power off the box. In one case even that didn't work and had to unplug it. All in all, not the best unit IMHO.

Its a piece of junk. I bought a 70" 3D Sharp Aquos and it came bundled with 2 glasses and this 3D Blu-Ray player. To be quite honest its an insult to the TV it came with and should be an embarassment for Sharp. I would have paid a few more dollars for them not to include this player.

To start off this 3D Blu-Ray player constantly hangs (no response from remote), I mean CONSTANTLY. Once it hangs and you go to turn it off it takes almost a minute to turn off. If you want to switch quickly from a Disk movie to Netflix you have to stop it, back out, return to home, click on netflix and hope it doesn't hang.......... all the things that should happen at the click of one button.

If a disk is in the Blu-Ray player when you turn the unit on it doesn't give you the choice to start the movie from the player menu, it automatically assumes you want to watch the movie your kid might have left in and starts the movie, even though you might want to watch Netflix or VUDU. If you do the frustration of stopping the movie and backing out to the player menu starts all over again.

Its slow, unresponsive, frustrating to navigate and lacks wi-Fi. DO NOT waste yor money. It gets one star for actually playing a Blu-Ray.

Im in love and impressed with my Sharp Aquos TV but This 3D Blu-ray player is absolutely terrible.

Bought the Sharp BD-HP25U about 6 months ago and it has been a love-hate relationship since I hooked it up. It is easy to install and the menus are pretty intuitive. I've had no problems with Netflix or VUDU other than as mentioned in a previous review that it seems to hang sometimes trying to get out of those apps. It also seems to get really flaky at times and won't open the disc tray or just freezes up which is only resolved by unplugging. Definitely not a stable system.

Yesterday I bought a 3D Vizio tv and was anxious to see a blu-ray 3D disc. I tried Polar Express and Final Destination. The player would not recognize either as a 3D disc. The TV works great with DirecTV's 3D channels, so I can only assume it is a problem with the player. There is a menu option to display a warning when a 3D disc is played and that warning was never displayed so apparently the player is not recognizing the format. Went to Sharp's web site and there is nothing for this player in the support section except the latest firmware which I had already installed via its Internet connection. They have no user forum, knowledge base, or even the manuals online.

I only give it two stars because when it works, it works great. However, I have spent a lot of time throwing 4 letter words at it and hopefully can find something that works better. Definitely stay away from it if you're looking to get into 3D blu-rays.

I bought this under the assumption that I would be able to use apps, and allow me to use my "Plasma TV" as close to a "Smart TV" as possible. Sadly enough, when I tried to load "YouTube", it said that it was unavailable. It offered no way of updating it to use "YouTube", and many other apps. I've scoured the web, looking for solutions to this, but to date have found nothing. I finally connected it to a "Smart TV" and only use it as a "BluRay Player" and depend on the "Smart TV" for apps and such. If you want to do the latter, this would be a fine addition to your home theater. Other than that, you don't have many options. I would have rated it higher, but since it continues to advertise that it will allow you to use "YouTube", I gave it two stars. I'd recommend that you look for another player if you want "Smart TV" features.

This Blu-ray player is a real entertainment hub! It's even 3D capable! I love that it is wireless, it does all of its updates automatically. Also, unlike the old BD models, its tray opens very quickly. This unit is great quality. It comes with a Netflix interface, the ONLY issue I have with it is that it doesn't also come with Hulu Plus. I understand that every company can't work together but every other wireless capable device comes with Hulu nowadays!

Edit: After using this Blu-ray player for a while I've noticed something pretty serious.. When I watch shows/movies through it's Netflix app the black parts of the picture (usually people's eyes, super creepy!) show red trails. I watch cable on the same TV and it doesn't do it so it has to be the BD player :(

It's worked fine for the first 6 months. Bought the Hobbit 3D and it does not recognize the 1st disk. Took the movie back and exchanged it for another one - will not play the first disc either. Plays the 2nd one fine. Tried to upload the latest firmware which was a hassle from a thumb drive and it would not recognize it. Got another thumb drive and it said there was nothing on it. Spent a whole afternoon - completely wasted a nice day. Called Sharp and couldn't get through. Not happy.
