VUDU's self-titled set-top-box has certainly made quite the name for itself in the few short months that it has been on the market. Whether or not that name is positive one, however, is most certainly up for debate. Soon after launching at $399, reviews came pouring in
that seemed to harmoniously shout "meh," but we still had hope for it. Upon speaking
with company representatives at CEDIA, we knew that potential was still untapped at its coming out party -- the only question was how much support would it get from studios
when pleading for their precious content in high-definition. Needless to say, garnering said backing still seems to be an uphill battle
, but we managed to wrap our paws around the now-$295
device and put it through the paces that we HD junkies care about. Follow us after the break for the full spill, won't you?
