Rick, the Oppo's are very popular here. They offer excellent build quality, excellent customer service, and excellent DVD upconversion. Also excellent analog audio, if you use analog audio. I have the Panasonic 110, and am considering the Oppo 105 for its high-quality audio DACs (for CDs and SACDs). But if all you want the player for is watching BluRay discs and Netflix streaming, using digital audio out (HDMI), you will get similar BluRay PQ and AQ with less expensive models such as the Panny 220, Sony 390, and Sony 590. As already stated, upgrading to a newer model gets you faster loading times and more streaming choices including 1080p Netflix streaming.
