Gizmodo said the bootup time is not 10 seconds. Closer to 50 seconds.

I would still call this a step in the right direction. A MSRP at launch of $549.99 means that this might be the first player to eventually cross the $400 mark? Plus Sharp is super present at BB, CC & Costco. Let's see the rest of the announcements...

No ethernet, unknown profile spec, guess I might as well spend my money for a BD player on a couple more HD DVD players for the rest of the house.

Disregard. Major brain fart.

Wonder if that port is a proprietary port like the ones you see on some Sony devices.

This player surprised me too. What is the deal??? Makes me wonder if Sony has all their ''partners'' in this format war on the same page!!!! Price is not too bad...but it is not enough,imho. Toshiba is going all out and Sony seems to make a little step forward and then a mile step back!!!! Patience is wearing thin. This kind of inconsistencie is exactly the reason why many consumers are not on board yet.

Wonder if its a firewire port? Not sure why there would be one though?

Edit: Might be USB but it doesnt look like its square all the way around. Could be the screw above it making the plug look a little different.

That unidentified port is the Aquos Link.
