For people that have used the Oppo BDP-103 to watch videos over SMB (instead of DLNA), how does it compare to something like a WD TV Live Plus in terms of file compatibility, interface speed, etc? How about other players like the Popcorn Hour, etc?

Is it viable to replace a PS3 and another standalone streamer with the Oppo?

Not if you plan to watch any media derived from Cinavia encoded BDs.

Actually the Oppo ignores Cinavia watermarks in MKV and M2TS files, as do a number of other BD players.

One really shouldn't compare a full featured media box to a BD player. The Oppo is a simple renderer with SMB access to shared files. A media box offers considerably more functionality such as file management and storage, additional file sorting options, etc. The Oppo does a lot, probably more than any other BD player, but its not a media box. If your stated purpose is only to watch media files, there are less expensive options with more functionality.
