    newbie questions

    Hi, learned about vudu when engadget posted about the christmas special and have been reading about it. Seems like an impressive product for people really interested in watching quality downloads.

    Is there a place to download representative quality samples of sd, hd, or hdx? trailers or something? I'm sort of curious because my display device is relatively "low-res" - 480p front projector at about 80 inches with only component inputs available. I'm wondering if the large SD catalog would look just as good as the dvds im use to. If they do, that makes the product pretty attractive. DVD rentals at my local place are over $4, and Netflix is great, but you don't always have a movie you want to watch on the spur of the moment.

    My other concern, which I'm not really sure anyone can address, is purchasing a $200 piece of hardware and having vudu go under in 6 months, and end up with a $200 paperweight. $200 for me is a big deal. It is a little discomforting to have no idea how many units have been sold, how the company is doing etc. I am a Netflix subscriber and have checked out their streaming offering, which frankly sucks, but we all know the better product doesn't always "win."

    thanks

    Why not visit your local BestBuy and check out the VUDU there. They should have movies already on the box along with the demo.

    Also you can purchase and take advantage of the 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you don't like it you get a refund. Check out VUDU's web site for more information.

      Act fast and you can get one for $149 right now.

      And, YES, it will look great on your 480P projector.

        The SD movies will look as good as DVDs or better.

        As far as Vudu going under - I doubt it. And even if that does happen, any movies you have purchased on your hard drive will be yours to keep and play for as long as the drive holds out!

          Unfortunately the closest best buy with a vudu in stock is several hour drive away.

          That's good to know that the SD means essentially dvd quality.

          Now, just how to convince the wife that we really need this and the bluray player in addition to netflix.
