Vudu quality has a lot to do with your streaming ability. It appears that if it senses slow streaming, it will dumb down the signal somewhat. I have not had an issue with quality, though. Is it bluray quality (I'm talking 3D here), I'd say close, but not quite, since they do compress the video somewhat, as all the streamers do, so they can maintain their channel bandwidth. As for the high price, they typically carry a high price on bundled 2D/3D plus features when they release about a month ahead of bluray, then the price comes down as they release the 3D movie by itself for less. It's been said that Vudu sends out 3D in SBS format, but my projector says it's framepacking, but I'm not sure. Their signal works best with a 1.4a compliant hdmi, and less so with a 2.0 compliant hdmi for some reason.
As for 4K UHD 2D movies, I have found the compression too much and not up to bluray standards.
