I've been using Netflix since January and it's more of a convenience for me than anything else.
Some titles have been in my list for MONTHS before I was able to watch them. Bedazzled is a great example. I added this title to my list BEFORE it was released. When the DVD was released, it was at the TOP of my list and I had an open slot for it to ship. Unfortunately, I added it to my list TOO LATE because it took about 6 months for a disc was shipped to me for viewing. Bedazzled was released in March and I received it about two weeks ago for my FIRST viewing.
Also, some titles Netflix is just nOT carrying, like Along Came a Spider and Heartbreakers (w/ Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love-Hewitt).
If you have a GOOD DVD rental store near you, you might have better luck with that. I will stick with Netflix because I'm not picky about the order in which I watch the movies I want to see and I like the convenience of NOT having to go to the store to rent the titles.
Also, Netflix has over 10,000 titles on DVD for rent, so if you're looking for some obscure DVD titles, Netflix is probably a good way to go (or some other online rental service).
