    I never had a problem with Netflix and I've been with them for about 3 years now. Good service and fast shipping. :thumbsup:

    I use Netflix... I love it...

    From what I hear, Blockbuster online has a better layout though... Like if you want more recommendation type stuff of new releases, but to me, Netflix works great!

    lol.

    I have heard good things about NetFlix...only downside I have heard is that sometimes the new movies have a waiting list, and it may take a while to get specific ones.

    block buster is the same way. you have to wait for newer movies unless you get them first, lol

    But then again, I also have 40 movies in my queue at any time... :)

    i have blockbuster. Its $15 a month and you get 2 free instore rentals. So what I do is rent games with the coupons. It costs $13 to rent two games. So i pay $2 a month for the rentals online. The only thing i remember about netflix is the movies were coming shipped from hollywoood CA and it took over a week for turnaround time. They might have changed though it was a long time ago.

    Netflix is nice for a few reasons...

    #1. Don't have to go to the store to rent (In my case 15+ miles)
    #2. Don't have to go to the store to return the rental by a certain time
    #3. Online rentals don't have a due date... Keep them as long as you want... Which is good for my wife and I, because we don't alwyas
    #4. You can setup a queue... So lets say there are about 10 movies you want to see... You put them in your queue.. They send you 1, 2, & 3... Watch them at your leisure, then mail each one back individually, and they will automatically send you the next ones in your queue.

    I guess, I am used to Austin, where there are about twenty rental spots every mile.
