Maybe comparing to his TV it is night and day but to my Roku it is only slightly lower in quality. Though at 1080P from the 103D, at time it seems like 720p.

So frickin' what, I am also a shareholder of other big cap stocks. Nobody is crying a river here. If you want to go that route you're just hanging on a thin thread.

^^I use the USB to attach a portable drive full of rips since I don't have a NAS. Works great too, but yeah this is by far one of the best DLNA streaming devices for being a Blu-Ray player.

You'd still have to open up the unit for connecting but no soldering required. Looks kind of tacky but whatever works. I'm sure there are other options if you want to get technical.
