I just started renting from 3BR so far so good but they don't charge full retail price of disc to my credit card as I read here. Is this a new trend? I don't mind either way. Luckily I live very close to 3BR so I get the movie the next day.

We use to require a deposit to rent 3D Blu-ray movies but no longer require that. Our customers seem to prefer the new way

After reading this thread a month ago I went ahead and rented Captain America and everything went really smoothly. I just ordered A Christmas Carol this week. It's great we have somewhere to rent 3D blu-rays because most of the 3D movies are ones that I really don't care to own. I just want to watch them and see how they look. I am definitely going to be using the site quite a bit.

Used the service for the first time this week, couldn't be happier. Fast shipping and smooth transaction all around. Much better option than buying titles I don't love, or gambling that BB will actually send the right version.

Have you considered a forum member discount or frequent rental discount program?

Thank you for the suggestion. I will pass this by the team. We have ran promotions in the past where you get a certain discount if you rent so many movies over a weekend sale. If we decide to do something like that again, I will post here to notify you all.

Any chance on avatar going down in price? I understand it's a rare disc and expensive to replace, but $24 to rent it kind of takes away from what makes this site so useful.

Sorry to hear about your frustration...newer releases like Kung Fu Panda 2 and hot titles can have a wait. Our recommendation is to order them as soon as possible during the pre-order stage (1 week before release date) to ensure you're one of the first to get them. We send out orders in a first come first serve basis. We try and stock enough inventory so that when there is a wait, it's a short wait of about 1-10 days with a guarantee that it will ship within 20.

From time to time, Avatar does go on sale but the demand for it right now is still high. It costs us a premium to purchase this title since it is still in "exclusive" status. When this title is more readily available, we will definitely lower the rental price to be more aligned with the other titles.

Hi all!
I just wanted to let you know that there are other B3D rental options. There is a company that I use that runs off of the NF model (subscription rental pages). Check out 3Dbymail.com

Happy renting!

$24.99 a month? Too expensive I'll stick with 3BR. They only carry 50 titles and no exclusive titles like Avatar or HTTYD.

Ouch! Guess you had to sign up to even find that out? Can't imagine anyone paying a monthly sub fee like that especially with the limited number of 3D blurays at this point in time.

I wouldn't sign up there simply for the fact that it's an asinine business model for this type of product, for the very reasons you pointed out.

I'll stick with 3BR, too...if it ain't broke, dont fix it.

Yep. No FAQs or any info on the site. I was curious how much they charge, if it was anywhere near NF charges but it's way too much for very little library offered. Now I need to figure out how to delete my info.

Is there a way to know what is immediately available? If there is, I can't find it on your Web site.

Unfortunately, our database is not integrated with our website right now. The best way is to email us under "contact us" for the most current list.

I always email first to see what's available. It's always a quick response, usually 1-2 hours

I just signed up at 3d-blurayrental.com. I will give it a shot when I get my new tv. All the positive reviews really help.

I just ordered what I wanted and they shipped as available. I was ok if the title wasn't ready.

I might too but I can't get their 3D with either one of my 3D bluray players--Sony 570 & Panny 210. Best pq for streaming in 2D though.

While VUDU does have by far the best streaming PQ the 3D is side by side and 1/2 resolution. So while 2D PQ is close to BD quality the 3D isn't.

Also VUDU has a more limited selection though they do have some documentary types that aren't available on BD.
