I too, have been very happy with it, although I just started. I simply ordered all the 3d movies that I don't have, and they emailed back saying there would be a delay on some of them, but no more than 20 days. I've already received 2 and sent them back.

Two weeks ago I got the Monster House for free (rental) simply because they could not fulfill the promise of mailing the HTTYD on time.
Now the HTTYD is in the mail...This is supposed to be the 3d show case piece that I've been waiting for.
I was a bit disappointed with the MH which was not that great, 3d wise.

Just an update. I am at several rentals and still very happy with their service and their communications. Also please that they have dropped the charge then refund system to just a plain rental fee.

As to legalities?? Don't know. Not a lawyer. However I do ask, would Paypal be involved if it had any slight reason to think anything not legal might be going on, or even questioned later?

One quick question: when you use PayPal to rent their movies, do they have your authorization to charge your PayPal account whenever they need (for late fee)?

They probably have some payment system setup with Paypal that will allow them to charge a customer in the future if they violate the renter's agreement. I have not had a problem with that nor have I read anyone else either. I'm pretty sure someone would have posted if they charged for something they should not have. For me, it's like renting from your neiborhood blockbuster or other rental store, if you dont return a movie in time or something like that, they will charge you for it.

And I still remain very satisfied, thus far. Good communications between the renter and the company. You get an email when they mail your disc. Then you get an email when they receive your returned disc.

So far so good.
yeah there are some long delays (waiting) on certain popular movies but otherwise it remains very satisfactory for me.

Cool, I'm sure you'll be please with their service. They have mailers that look more like Blockbuster's version but in essence the same thing. One mailer for the shipping and return.

I ordered Tron & the 3D Tahiti title, but both are out.

I love the idea because I'm not a movie collector. I rarely watch a disc twice.

Cool, I'm pretty much the same way....I watch most movies just once. These guys are pretty good with their estimates, I havent had to wait that long when they said short wait. Hope you get them soon.

They had the Green Hornet up for pre-order yesterday and I'm on the list.

I agree with others. Very seldom do I watch a disk twice unless it is a absolutely top notch flik. Renting makes more sense than spending $25.

Most people do.
That's why Netflix is doing so well.
Just completed and returning Avatar and Lang Lang.
Imax: Hubble is in transit.
Megamind is waiting and waiting.
Is Tron worth watching in 3d?

No, for everyone else
But "yes" for you since you even watched a piano concert in 3D

If at least the 3D quality of the Tron 3D BD is even a shadow of how impressive the 3D was theatrically, it's worth a spin.

And that Lang Lang disc is very good. The concert at the Musikverein is not in 3D. He performs excerpts of the concert pieces at the (empty) Berghain nightclub--which from what I understand is a real hot spot in Berlin--before 3D cameras. Some excellent coverage of him at the piano throughout.

I think you should get Tron 3D. I saw it at the theater and at home in 3D blu-ray. I think the home experience was much better from a 3D perspective. I think the passive glasses they use at the theater is far inferior to 3D technology at home. It's definitely not a "pop-out" 3D experience but the depth is there and I liked it...I'm sure others would argue otherwise.

I just went to the Website and it has been redesigned and expanded.

You can register as a member.

I've rented 4 titles from them so far and each experience was perfect.

Yes, I noticed their new website as well and like it. Much better functionality. Search is better and you can now sort by new releases, coming soon, etc. They even have a sale & promotion category where movies go on sale as low as $3.50 per rental....nice Now I'll give that magic forest title a shot. And to top it off, my rental experience with them is still top notch.

I find it funny that in their FAQ they talk about customer testimonials and they link this thread on their site.

Question #12:
Is there a place I can go to see customer feedback?

Answer:
Yes, please go here to see what experience customers have had with us. Please feel free to participate in the feedback.

It looks like Paypal has been removed as one of the payment methods.
I was told they switch to a new company (Intuit) that handles the payment from now on.
And you have to be registered member to rent movies as well.
