With it’s 250GB hard drive (the upcoming VUDU XL has a 1TB drive), and instant download and play features, the VUDU kicks the pants off the AppleTV and Netflix… and is something we definitely want.

There are currently over 6,000 titles for sale or rent, about 100 of them in full 1080p HD quality.

Use the included HDMI cable to connect the VUDU to your Hi-Definition TV, and you’re off to the races. Connect the VUDU to your high-speed internet connection, and bam… instant access to the entire library of movies. Purchase or rent an movie, and start watching instantly.

VUDU uses it’s own proprietary encoding technology, and the only downside we can see to this device is that if the hard drive takes a dive, you might have to call VUDU support to get the machine fixed… but, thanks to the VUDU Vault, I’m not all that worried about them not being able to back up and reissue the movies I’ve paid for and need to download again.

And, the slick black box really does look pretty cool next to the slick black skin on my big screen TV.

Price: $295 for the VUDU with a 250GB drive, $999 for the VUDU XL with a 1TB drive (coming soon)
