    I am considering the IPad 2 WiFi only. What should I expect, in terms of quality, from watching HD and SD movies from Netflix and itunes? Any skips, lag, ect? Thanks

    That depends wholly on the network connection/wireless connection. I have 802.11n at home with 5ghz n only and Netflix and Napster stream fine to the iPad, iPad2 and Apple TV. Every now and then I may get a pause on one of the devices but nothing too serious.

    It is all 720p anyway so the quality isn't as good as a Blu-ray or anything but IMHO I think everything looks and sounds fine streaming.

    I have bought a few HD movies off of iTunes - I synced them to the iPad so there really isn't any streaming there. But since it is downloaded - I tried it to my AppleTV and it streamed fine from my PC over 802.11n.

    I have purchased 6 movies from iTunes, and all play great on the iPad 2, especially those that are HD (720P).

    Shouldn't have any problems if you got a decent connection for Netflix.

    I have converted a bunch of my DVDs. If you convert them properly, the playback is simply gorgeous.

    I agree, although that has nothing to do with the current discussion... ;-)

    I would have thought it was relevant to his question about how iTunes video downloads will play? If not, apologies.

    I have been using DVDFAB and I use the 2nd pass high quality encoding. The quality comes out pretty good.
