You need to be your own judge and jury to render a verdict.
In any case, the way I see it, this player has served me well and I don't regret the purchase. I bought it soon after it was released and it allowed me to be indifferent to BR or HD when choosing discs. It has a few quirks on the video side (1. apparently a few of the newer BR discs don't play although a FW update will likely fix that soon; and 2. no menus in HD). It also is limited on the audio side as you cannot play all of the new "HD" audio formats via digital and in some cases not even via analog and some people have experiened lip sync problems via analog.
The thing is, if I were in the market now I would certainly be considering waiting for the next generation players including the upcoming LG. They will have more functionality and might be better in terms of PQ and SQ. You will have to pay more for them if you get them when they first come out and I'm sure that when they do the BH 100 price will plummet.
So in the end you have to decide for yourself.
