I don't have the Oppo BDP-103 but I do have the Oppo BDP-93. I got it after the Blu-Ray function of the Samsung BD-UP5000 drive died. In fact, all of the BDP-UP5000s I have failed in the same way. Two of them continue to work in DVD and HD-DVD mode, and I still have a few HD-DVDs without B-D re-releases.
The OPPO is built like a rock and I've never had any problems with it. Oppo customer service is excellent (among the best in the industry), which I cannot say about Samsung.
BD picture quality is excellent, and DVD upscaling is also very good. Oppo's format flexibility is superb (DVD-A, SACD, DVD, B-R, DLNA, some smart apps).
