VUDU on the LG BD390 review


Engadget got their hands on the LG HDTV with the built-in VUDU capabilities, and not surprisingly the experience is pretty much the same as with the separate VUDU box, for better and for worse–such as their limited collection and higher prices. But the quality is impressive.



Like we said back when VUDU HDX was initially released, it is virtually indistinguishable from Blu-ray. Now we don’t want to go as far as to say the quality is the equal to Blu-ray — honestly we’re not qualified — but we will say that the picture quality has no noticeable compression artifacts like HD on cable and satellite does. The bottom line is that we’d be shocked if anyone had anything bad to say about the picture quality and the audio quality is pretty much in the same class.
