There's no such thing as a one-box solution to all streaming, media and shiny disc needs.
Ummmmm, NO. There are NOT a number of "excellent options for playback of ISO, 3D or otherwise". There is the Dune which is good for everything ISO that is not 3D, but there are ZERO good reliable options for playback of 3D ISO files other than the oppo. I guarantee you I have had more streamers/media players in the last six months than just about ANYONE outside of a professional reviewer and there are ZERO reliable 3D BD ISO players out there, EXCEPT for the Oppo which has played every 3D ISO file I have thrown at it without a hitch.
Totally agree about the part where there is no "one box solution" for everything (and everyone) though!
whoops, looks like djbluemax1 beat me to the punch. Guess I should have finished reading the thread instead of posting!
