So far a few people reported using it on AVS

" The Sharp player looks and feels much higher quality. The remote is logically laid out. The Disc start times are not 10 seconds, 20 seconds is more realistic, which is great. The unit powers up from standby mode in 10 seconds. The picture quality is the best of the 3 players I have had in the last 2 months. I have the unit attached via HDMi to a new Integra 6.8. The Samsung (after firmware update) would play the DolbyHD. This Sharp does not. I expect a firmware update!? There is a USB port on the back of the unit. The manual says this is for attaching USB memory for doing firmware upgrades, they refer to the port as a Service port.

There is no Bitstream option in the setup menu, just Auto or PCM.

We watched Fantastic 4 'Rise of the Silver Surfer' last night. The disc load time about 40 seconds. Looked great and sounded great in DTS "

I was reading over at AVS forums that the player works well (only a few members have it so far). There are a lot more waiting for their units to arrive.
