Regarding long term quality - I have Casio calculator I bought in 1981 with original CASIO batteries. Yes, I never replaced batteries in 37 years since I bought CASIO and every time I turn switch on - it works. Where did you see batteries that last more than 37 years and still going strong and will still work after I die, who knows may be another 100 years? It feels almost like a perpetuum mobile. Unbelievable but CASIO made this things in 80s. OPPO is something of similar quality but of course unlike batteries or calculator video/audio standards evolve but old disks will still run. My grandma had LPs from early 20s century and I still can enjoy them, they still play okay. So BD does not go anywhere. I have very old audio cassettes which captured some unique moments of my life (when there were no video cameras yet) where I talk about high school, plans for the future, talk with my son, lot of unique stuff. Format is obsolete but you can still play them magnetic tapes - I bought cassette player online with no problem which also can convert records to mp3 file. And OPPO plays every audio/video format that exist today and will last for decades.
