IMO, these professional grade single media players have outlived their usefulness…
wouldn’t you want a hard drive, flash media and network streaming device w/ wired & wireless connections instead?!?

These were elegant for the time, but it’s like looking at the last horse and buggy premium sound equipment from a museum-- soupped up to run a non-leaded gasoline engine (blue ray)… when we have massive upgrades in technology by comparison, a hovercraft…

With or Without Cinavia?

It has 3 USB ports and wired/wireless networking according to the spec sheet.

Wow, pretty uninformed response. The Oppo plays virtually any media from disc, HDD, network (DNLA and SMB). It comes with a wireless dongle and of course Ethernet. It streams from Netflix, Vudu and an assortment of others. And with 2 HDMI inputs, it can do a whole lot more. Also will support the new Roku Stick MHL device.

The BDP-105 will also include SPDIF audio inputs and can be used as an external DAC in high-end systems.

I didn’t read the spec sheet, but still… $1200? one could build an awesome HTPC with an android remote control that can do all this and MORE for less money… my point still stands, this design is obsolete in the 201x’s you can build a rack-mount htpc and it would be a better solution-- AND it would be upgradeable.

It’s a horse and buggy solution for the hovercar age…

Guess the only thing it won’t have is region free playback. Guess we’ll still have to leave that to the after market…

Your initial point is largely invalid because you based your criticism on this unit not having multiple file support or networking capabilities when it does have all those features.
Yes, the price is higher than a regular player but the amount of circuitry and build quality would likely be much greater in this unit.

Oppo was never meant to appeal to those unwilling to spend more than $100 on a blu-ray player or a few hundred on a decent HTPC. It’s always been for the extreme user.
