Sharp has recently released the Aquos Quattron LE380 Series HDTVs, as well as a trio of 3D Blu-ray players, an event so cool that we reported on it twice.
These new 3D-enabled Blu-ray players are AQUOS brand with the BD-HDW80, BD-HDW75, and the BD-HDW73. The recorders are compatible with BD-RE XL rewritable Blu-rays that Panasonic announced last week for Japan. They also feature DLNA support, HDMI interface, Ethernet, a USB port, as well as IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi.
About the only difference between them is the memory. The BD-HDW80 has 1TB of memory, the BD-HDW75 has 500 GB, and the BD-HDW73 has 320GB.
Sharp has plans to roll out the new recorders in Japan on April 27. The BD-HDW80 will be $1,290, the BD-HDW75 will be $1,060, and the BD-HDW73 will be $940. I have no word on if there is going to be an International release of these Sharp AQUOS 3D Blu-ray players, but I don’t see why not.
