I dunno. I rarely use my blu ray anymore and don't watch flix repeatedly. I just got a new 55" led and have downgraded my surround sound 5.1 to a zvox (I have these in other rooms), and am likely merely going to stream through roku and the tv. With my current 42" lcd, I'm quite pleased with vudu hdx and since I go ethernet wired, I never have a drop. I will either go ethernet on my new 55" (different room) or go wifi but will stay with streaming. The extra steps to rent and deal with blu ray, and the invariable amount of times we doze off anyway watching movies at home, makes me feel that an hdx stream via vudu and roku or via the tv is sufficient. This is coming from a nyc apartment living guy who generally sees his flicks in the theaters anyway, so movies at home are secondary. Yet, I like my good audio and video gear, and am usually pretty snobby about quality, but my usage tendencies seem to be what they are. If I had a home theater in a house in the burbs I'd prolly think differently.
