I have had an SB-13 Ultra in piano black for about six months. No damage so far - either from shipping or use since then. My kids are grown and no pets currently, so I don't expect any scratches or...

I agree that streaming can't match BD - either in VQ or SQ. However, for many (the majority?), that doesn't matter a lot because streaming is much more convenient - and it's "good enough". Although...

I have a Roku3 and it works fine for me with a wired connection which is at 30 Mb/s. I also does 1080P and DD+ through HDMI. No drops. It's most likely your TV's app.
