I assume that when you say "BluRay quality" you are being literal and not just some compressed to shit MKV or x264. Downloading 13GB of top notch relatively loss-less x264 in an hour or less is pretty impressive.
You can stream good quality 720p. I haven't seen 1080p in good quality for streaming. I let them download overnight if I want 1080p. I'm generally happy with 720p for most movies and tv shows.

My device for watching tv downloads torrents direct. It's very practical but your right I may not have what I want that minute. But I can also stream divx and it does rip bluerays. Took me a few days to set it up but that was a long time ago. Works very well.
