There is a price to be paid for convenience. Amazon is a nearly instant rental, renting from Redbox requires forethought, and then returning it.

I watch Blu-Ray too, but all I'm saying is that the differences (which are really there) aren't perceptible on a normal sized flat panel display. Maybe someday I will own a screen big enough to see...

Oh, sorry, I wasn't sure what you're referring to. I'm not sure if it works, or how it works. I thought it was something for Smash Bros?

Oh, if they're portable to a provider like VUDU, than it's not a terrible idea, although the quality of Verizon's VOD is still going to be way inferior to most VUDU encodes.

You do realize that Netflix SuperHD looks far better than virtually any cable or satellite service, and is visually equivalent to Blu-ray on a typical TV screen, right?

Are you referring to using an item like a mushroom with the left shoulder? That works fine, but the button has WAY less of a keystroke than the shoulder button on a GCN controller, which at first was...

That sounds like a terrible idea. Not only is Verizon's ON Demand not as good as VUDU quality wise, but what if you switch to another provider? What happens to your collection. That's just a terrible...

That's a blown up screen shot. I'm talking about to human eyes sitting 6-7' away from a 60" TV, where there is no difference.

If a movie is on Netflix, I'm going to watch it on Netflix, because it's "free", i.e. I've already paid for Netflix anyways. But the vast majority of recent movies aren't available on Netflix. I...

Some VUDU encodes are botched, some are really, really good. Every Amazon encode that I've seen has been Blu-Ray quality, as has been all of Netflix's original content streamed in SuperHD. Most...

No, there is no way a human, at a normal seating distance (call it 6' from a 60", which is within the THX recommended distance) can see the difference. There's still some debate on the sound,...

I'm about the same size and distance, and Amazon, iTunes, and good VUDU encodes are visually equivalent to BD.

Except for the whole premise of the post. You cannot see compression artifacts on a normal-ish sized HD screen at a normal-ish distance from Netflix SuperHD or Amazon's 1080p.

Good, but not great. A nice addition to MK8 to make long marathon sessions with multiple players more fun. Totally worth the price.
