Ok help me pick

I am trying to decide on a online movei rental service. My choices are narrowed down to: Xbox 360 market place, Vudu, and the Roku with netflix. Anyone have a preferance and why? What are the movie rental costs, how long can you store them, and what is the monthly service fee?

I know the vudu unit is $299, and the Roku is $99. The vudu and Xbox are currently HD capable and the Roku will be in the future. Bandwidth is not an issue with any as I have fiber and average 4.5mb+ down.

I like Netflix, pretty good selection. Not sure about the others as I haven't used them.

They don't offer viewing movies online, or via a box like Netflix does.

Exactly I am tired of renting scratched discs from blockbuster, netflix, and redbox. I am looking for the convenience of a discless movie rental.

I've yet to get a damaged Blu-Ray from Netflix and I've watched plenty of TV shows online through their site. Conventional DVDs are hit and miss though.

Tried PPV?

Buell 1125R
Raptor 700R
No fast cars though

I am also trying to figure out if I want the roku or the vudu. I don't like having to pay per movie for the vudu but it is hd.
