Netflix is pretty good, but their shipping isn't quite as fast as advertised fro my experience. They have a very wide variety of films, but if you like foreign films or other less popular titles, they may be harder to come by.

I live in manhattan, and the shipping is pretty fast. They have a lot of hard to find movies. The price isn't bad either if you watch 6-10 movies a month (depending on how many New Releases) it's about as expensive as going to blockbuster. If you really bust your ass and watch 11+ a month, the price gets better and better. It takes about 2 days to send one back and receive another. By that I mean the next movie is almost always in my mailbox on the third day.

I have been getting Netflix for about 3 months now. I have no complaints. They have a huge selection and I get my selections two working days after I put the old ones in my mailbox. The only downside I can think of is you have to plan ahead. Say you want to watch a movie on Friday night. You have to make sure the old movies are in the mail Wednesday morning at the latest.

Sorry, I was being a bit facetious. Usenet is the name for internet "newsgroups" where binary files of all types (mostly pirated) can be found.

Of course I would never advocate anyone doing such a dastardly thing.

Netflix is great....but there's a dirty little secret they've been busted for ....it's called "throttling".....that means they get movies back out to people who dont watch as many dvd's a month faster than they do for people who watch a ton each month. They also try to get the "short wait" or "long wait" dvds out to those same people first as well...because they want to protect their $20 a month customers who dont watch as many dvds (more profit in those customers).

I've found that in months that I dont watch many dvds....I can return a dvd Monday and have a new one back Wednesday.....if in a month that I've watched quite a few...I might not get the movie back until Thursday...

It's a minor annoyance though I guess....I've been a customer for 2 years now and havent had much complaints....

I still wished they rented games too though...

Been a member for a little over two years now and have little to complain about.

They have different plans as how to many DVDs you can rent at a time. My plan varies between the 1 at a time during the summer months and 3 at a time during the winter months.

After the free membership is over they'll start "throttling" your account.

What that means is that you won't be able to rent more than your plan allows in a weeks time. ex. if your on the three at a time plan you can't get more than three in any one weeks time. They'll simply delay shipping and arrival times.

They gigantic selection of films. In two years I've only had one occurrence where the film I wanted was unavailable. That includes foreign films as far as I could tell.

After tax the monthly fee for 3 a month is $19.07 and there is a distribution center located in the business district of Harrisburg so shipping times are usually next day.

Do the free trail. If you're a movie fan it's well worth it for the selection and convenience.

I found them to be quite useful, and my movies always arrived very quickly, I guess because I have a shipping warehouse an hour or so away, I don't know. But I like documentaries, and they had plenty of them. I recommend it, but you should probably step up and go for the "unlimited rental" option, however much that one is.
