does anyone use this or another online rental service?

If so, what movie would you recommend?

Used to be slow but they have a distribution center in my city and they've speeded up considerably

I've been with Netflix now for about 2 years. I love it. You don't have to worry about late fees and keep the DVD as long as you want with no hassle.
My plan is the 3 at a time, unlimited. I watch the 3 on the weekend, mail them back on Monday and by Wednesday or Thursday I have my next three DVD's.
The couple of times that I've have shipping problems(unplayable DVD, etc), I've had no problems with their return policy. Very easy!
There are so many great movies that I've watched, but here are a few that I've seen recently...
American Gangster
Gone Baby Gone
Talk To Me
In the Valley of Elah
I would highly recommend Netflix to anyone!!

when I had Blockbuster, they'd get a movie back on Monday and about 75% of the time not send a replacement until Wednesday and it would be at least Friday before I got it, sometimes longer - and it was almost never from the top of my queue - usually from about 10 spaces down.

Netflix is much better, especially since they opened the new shipping center here in the state. now I put it in the mail on Monday and have a new one Wednesday - and nearly 100% from the top of my queue.....

I used to have major problems with Netflix when I was shipped out of Denver - never got the new releases the first week out, but now I always do, on at least 2 out of 3 every week.

In my third week with Netflix. Been happy with the selections and service. You return a movie, they get it and ship the same day. You receive it the next day. So if I return by USPS on Monday, I'll have a replacement by Wednesday.

We used Blockbuster online for several months before switching to Netflix in May 2007. Both have advantages and disadvantages.
Blockbuster: Rent online & receive through the mail - return either thru the mail or exchange at a store. We found we were making extra trips (buying more gasoline, wear & tear on the vehicle) by returning the online rental to a store and then having to return the store rental to the store.

Netflix: Rent online & receive through the mail - return through the mail. View stream video online (a lot of older movies, but they are adding more recent movies & tv shows.) However, most movies have been released on dvd for a long time before they can be watched online.

Blockbuster had a slower turn around time than Netflix. They may be better now, we were using their service when they first started the online rentals.

Netflix seems to have a larger selection.

Could someone compare the selection of movies with Netflix vs Blockbuster?

Blockbuster Total Access allows you to turn a movie your received by mail into a store rental and boosts the number of movies you can rent in a month or even rent a game instead. Maybe it isn't as convenient as just waiting for them to be delivered to your door, but it's a great deal in my opinion.

I use Netflix and like it much better than a video rental store. I usually get the movies I want and no late fees. Plus the selection is so much better than any video store around here.

I re-sign up for Netflix every 4 - 6 months. I don't know what kind of movies you like, but I can highly recommend "What Alice Found". It's a quirky, offbeat little film that's well worth watching.
