    Which one is the best in your opinion? Why? (Price, selection, #of movies at a time, etc)

    All I've used is Blockbuster, seems decent and the coupons are nice.

    We've had Netflix and it wasn't bad. Movie turn-around was very quick.

    NetFlix + DVD burner = goodness ;)

    I have a subscription to blockbuster online, and thanks to some of the threads on this site, i've got 55 movies in my que. The turnaround is a little slow, but not bad. The not recieved movie feature is nice, and there's a good selection. Never tried Netflix, but have a friend that did, and he said he liked it.

    Online movie rental + DVDBurner + DVD shrink + Cheap eBay media = :hsd:

    I've used Netflix for quite a while. Their major distribution center in my area is only 12 miles away so my movies get to me right away. Big selection, decent availability on new releases (if you know how to time it), good customer service. Wish the Queue was bigger though :o

    intelliflix has the cheapest price with prepaid year for $8.95/mo

    but i've found some titles that netflix has and they dont, i've only gotten my first set of 3 and it was mailed regular mail.. NO FIRST CLASS, took a few days... 3-4.. but return postage is 1st class....WTF? intelliflix is also shipping out of DE, netflix was sending in-state about 80miles from here.

    for the price, intelliflix isnt bad.

    I actually have them both right now (they were running a deal, so i bit) And they're both the same. Blockbuster is better at having movies available, but sometimes it takes them a little longer to turn the movies around. So I'd call them even. They both cost exactly the same for 3 movies at a time. For me the shipping facilities are about the same distance away... but if you find that one is closer than the other... i'd go with the closer one.

    also i found out that if you watch a lot of movies, and are on the 3 a month plan, netflix throttles your movies, as in they limit you to 18 a month, even though it says unlimited rentals.

    Turnaround is to high for me. I can go to the video store in 5 minutes and be back with 10 movies :)
