Oh absolutely, they are very serious about it and since Take 2's release I've been very very pleased. I've rented far more films than I thought I would for it's just to easy. So far I've rented the following:
Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Balls of Fury
Appleseed Ex Machina
and a few others I can't recall now
I've found nothing crazy wrong with the video quality and/or sound. The rentals hold up in my reference theater and are just as enjoyable for bedroom viewing as well. It really is a neat service. While it won't replace netflix it does give me the best of both worlds. The interface is sleeker now and the added features it brought to my existing library of self ripped DVD's (yes I own them all) was a nice perk.
For $200 and some change it's now about as cool of a toy as you can get for your HT in my opinion.
