Good Service

We use Netflix all the time with 5 of us with different interest and always on the run the late fees from Blockbuster we're killing us! Our distribution center gets em out to us in a day no later than two at the most so its pretty convenient.

I would definately give em a shot.

thanks gentlemen. i will at least give the trial period a shot. just tired of trying to get newer stuff and having to drive 30 plus miles to rent dvd. i always buy what i like but the stuff i am not sure about i like to rent. i also have the ability to burn dvd's, so that was my major thinking.

i am not saying this is always the case with netflix....but i was watching school of rock on dvd a few weeks ago on the night it came out for rental and purchase in stores.

i thought that was pretty sweet.

Jimmy are they still shipping from the west coast?

When They first came out a couple years ago I went with them for a while but it would be 7-9 days between sending them out and receiving the next ones. I went with a local service and had next ones within 4 days of putting my viewed ones in the mail, but they didn't have enough dvd's for me.

i live in maryland and my shipping time in most cases is 1 day each way. here is a quote i found while reading in yahoo finance, http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/040329/sfm024_1.html

Additional shipping centers throughout the United States serve the following metro markets: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Greensboro, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Newark, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Richmond, Rochester, San Jose, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa and Washington, DC

crap, sorry hogg. i see you live in MD too. i misread the post and was just in a hurry to find that info and post it here.

the movies come out of gaithersburg, so mailing time would definitely be 1 day each way for you.

I used Netflix for a while - I found it to be absolutely outstanding! The only reason I discontinued it was because I didn't have the time to watch the DVDs. But if I had more time, I would highly recommend this service.

I had it when it originally came out and the shipping lag was a pain. My Mother and Sister have it now and swear by it. The only problem I have with the concep is that I'm usually spontaneous in my DVD selection and if I decide I want to watch a certain movie, I don't want to have to wait a few days to watch it.
