BLU-RAY: Sharp AQUOS HP-210U - $99

by wbm33 / September 3, 2010 4:48 AM PDT

The Sharp AQUOS HP210U BLU-Ray player is listed at Walgreens for $99, online only. Thought people might be interested. I am new to bluray, was thinking of picking up one of these machines. Price seems good. I have a 55" Sharp Aquos. Is it worth it? Can I get onto the internet from this bluray player? I have a Wii also. I do have a surround sound system that comes from a 5-disc upscaling DVD changer. Basically, want to be able to get movies downloaded onto TV. With my components, is this possible. Thanks for reading.

HP-210U: One major issue
by Dan Filice / September 3, 2010 4:22 PM PDT

According to the review posted here in the CNET review of this player, one person stated it did not play some BR discs. This is a red flag to me. I could not determine if it did movie downloads, but based on the one major issue just stated, I personally would keep looking.

Internet Blu Ray Players

The AQUOS HP210U is an older model not capable of downloading movies from the internet. Typically those models go for around 160 bucks. However Costco recently had Samsung and Sony models with instant rebates. I bought the Sony for 130 bucks and it does Netflix, Amazon, Pandora and a few others. It does a good job despite my slow DSL connection. I use an ethernet connection because the wireless adapter is another 70 bucks
