I was really skeptical about mailing dvds and how good it really could be. I've had Netflix for about 4 months now and I don't think I'll ever walk into a blockbuster again! I only live about 50 miles from the nearest center and I get my movies about 2 days after requesting them (occaisionally 3, or 1 if I'm lucky.) Does everybody live this close to their Netflix center??? My only complaint: My queue stays empty for small periods of time when I can't think of a movie to rent. Tried blockbuster for their free trial (2wks), but the movies didn't seem to get here as fast. Netflix has a 2wk trial too, and last time I checked Wal-Mart had a 30-day. All are good if you want to get some free movies and try out their services - you need a credit card though, just remember to cancel your membership if you don't want to continue service.
