Good luck!
Great info, Thanks!

beauty and the beast 3D

I checked on Ebay today, and it is now possible to buy a new, 3D Beauty and the Beast blu-ray (2017, starring Emma Watson) for a price lower than the rental price of $8.99 for the same movie.

Ships from Shipley, United Kingdom, but it is advertised as region free, so it should work in all players. Picture on Ebay is the same as at the one for the same movie at the 3D rental web site.

I would like to have this, but I'll wait to see if the price comes down some more before I put spend any money.

??? If it's less than the rental price it sounds like a great deal for a 3D BD.

Most of the Disney 3D region free disks sold at Amazon UK have steadily dropped in price to 10-12 GBP. That one in particular looks awesome, and is a good deal at under $9. Probably as low as you will find.

I'm loving this service more and more as it's in many cases the only way to see 4K without buying it. For example Game of Thrones 4K, you can't even get that direct from HBO Go/Now.

Another example, I want to watch Buck Rogers and they've got the remastered blu-rays. I can't find this for disc rental or streaming anywhere else. Netflix doesn't have the BDs or even the DVDs.

The only missing link now is region locked imports like Terminator 2 3D. I still have to buy those. I understand why they don't want to rent them out, because people who don't understand regions would cause customer support and satisfaction problems. But it is yet another niche they could address. They could fix the customer problem by having people configure their account as multi-region, then only show region locked import section to those customers.

I'd like that, too, but you are correct about the customer support problems. I've sold PAL DVDs on Amazon Marketplace and no matter how many times you tell people and get them to confirm they understand completely: they don't. Then you get angry, weepy feedback.

A subscriber service might have customers easier to educate, and it would be only one issue per bozo, with luck.

Import Blu-rays sometimes have 50hz content, either in the intro material or supplements, but sometimes in the main feature. Some US customer players and displays can handle it, but some not.

Yes. My Sony UHD TV can handle 50hz but my TCL UHD TV cannot.

Wait. Is it possible for a Region free (or Region-A) to have 50hz only on the menus, and thus be inoperable on a 60hz only set even though the feature itself is 60hz?

If so, that seems, well, ....just wrong.

Will a region free player like the Sony UBP-X700 Region Free 4K UHD Blu-ray Player convert those to 60hz for use on non 50hz compatible TV's?

Just ordered two movies to check out from 3d blu ray Galveston and The LEGO Movie in 4K UHD. I like 4K UHD but am not a 3D fan. Our main movie rental store closed a few years ago and there's no 4k UHD from Redbox here yet. Wondering if 3d blu ray will have better 4k UHD discs vs Redbox discs On a 40 inch or 50 inch TV like mine, I'm quite happy with 1080 Blu Ray discs but there a few like Thor: Ragnarok, Dunkirk, Mad Max, Black Panther and the remastered 35mm or 65mm film are great in 4k UHD.

I don't remember seeing any 50hz content on the 3d-blurayrental.com import discs I have gotten.

I don't know if the Sony converts 50 to 60hz. The OPPO models do but it is not a feature most people need so it is sometimes hard to find out. You might try asking on the thread for that player.

Is your current TV a 1080p display? I would skip UHD rentals until I had a 4k display.

I have to correct myself. I just rented Sirens (1994) and it is 1080i50. The disc is on the Umbrella label from Australia.

Are you certain your TV doesn't accept a 50Hz signal? I don't think I've had a TV that wouldn't do 50Hz since the CRT days, but maybe that's just dumb luck.

It definitely plays 50Hz discs just fine to a 50Hz capable TV. Not sure about converting to 60Hz, but I could try that out some time this week.

No, it happens. I had a nice upper-end Samsung panel that wouldn't. My current LG E6 does.

I send it 60hz regardless for both 60 and 50hz sources.

Okay, I tried to test this last night on my x700. It will output 50Hz to my TV which accepts 50Hz. I can manually force a specific resolution, but not frequency. Therefore I cannot manually set the output refresh rate to 60Hz.

What I don't know is if it will automatically output 50Hz content at 60Hz if your TV only does 60Hz. This is a possibility because output devices can poll the TV for it's capabilities (EDID for example) and adjust to match, but I have no way to test this because my TV and my computer's monitor are both 50Hz capable.

I went ahead and bought Beauty and the Beast 3D (2017) at $8.65 on Ebay. Of course, the next day, they dropped the price to $8.22. It will take a few weeks to get here since it is coming from England. I'll let you know if it is legit.

There are a couple of these places on Ebay, mediamerchuk and rarewaves, that sell 3d blu rays from England at low prices. Some are region free and some are region B, and sometimes the region designation in the descriptions can be vague, particularly at rarewaves. I think rarewaves doesn't accept Paypal payments anymore, which is off-putting for me.

I'm thinking about signing up for the $8.99 plan or maybe even the standalone $7.99 plan with no monthly fee...I saw someone asked about this a few posts back but does anyone know where they ship their discs from?...I'm in NYC (Manhattan)...do they have locations in multiple states (one on the West Coast, one on the East etc)...I'm not expecting them to have Netflix style distribution but I'm curious how large their company is and how much stock they have for popular discs...their website is easy to navigate but seems a bit like a mom and pop store

One location: Naperville IL, a suburb of Chicago.

My impression is that they are a small operation because I get personal responses to my emails. Something lost, something gained.

I was looking at their website and one set of FAQ shows Illinois as the warehouse location and another shows California...either way I hear good things about this service but I also hear bad things regarding the shipping turnaround time...having to wait 'weeks' for a title in your queue sounds a bit crazy...either way since I'm in NYC Redbox has 4K titles available via their kiosks but they don't have all titles...I might use 3D-BluRayRental for those titles I'm not interested in buying but want to rent...I also think the standalone $7.99 option is best for me versus the subscription since I don't need to use them a lot

I don't recommend the subscription plan but the regular rentals are good. It might take 3 weeks to get a title you want but if you're in no hurry it's a good option. One peeve I have is those mailers always seem to open badly with me tearing up half the envelope. I always seem to be taping up the envelopes and hoping they make it back through shipping.

I get two or three titles every week. I just make sure I add new titles to my cart and checkout a week before they get released. Then I get the new titles shipped to me each week. It's very rare I need to wait for a title.

No wait times at all. 95% of the time I get them release week. I get two to three new releases every week. The very first week they are available.

Actually, I've noticed that Netflix embargoes new releases, but 3D-Blurayrental has them immediately. For example I have Star Trek Discovery S1D1 on the way from 3DBRR, but Netflix doesn't have it yet.

3DBRR shipping is vastly slower than Netflix and the website isn't anywhere near as well done. But time after time they have the title I want, and Netflix doesn't. (Imports, 3D, 4K.) And now I'm in a position where I'm actually getting a normal 2D BD from them instead of Netflix. So I'm considering dropping Netflix altogether and just increasing my 3DBRR subscription to make up for the slow shipping.

what do you mean by 'increasing your subscription to make up for the slow shipping'?...even if you get the more expensive monthly plan it doesn't make the shipping faster

By increasing plan I mean going from "1 disc at a time" to "2 discs at a time". Yes, you are correct this doesn't make the shipping faster from time of ordering a specific title to receiving that specific title. But it does improve the experience because it reduces the wait time between one order and the next.

If someone is more focused on getting through a high volume of discs, Netflix is definitely the way to go. Personally, I'm not really a "volume" viewer. The far more important aspect to me is getting the titles in the best format possible, and having access to a greater library. Netflix DVD is failing me on both counts.

But Netflix is not much use for 3D BD and UHD BD titles since they don't have them And many titles on Netflix that used to be available on 2D BD are now only available on DVD.

You couldn't pay me to go back to using Netflix for disc rentals. They don't even have 99% of the titles I rent from www.3d-blurayrental.com.

Well no kidding. That's exactly why I'm talking about dropping Netflix and increasing my 3DBRR plan.

Does 3d-blu-ray monitor this forum? I hate how their envelopes are glued! I had destroyed a few of them and had to use invisible table to fix and send back the disks. This is happening for months now... Come on guys, it's not really difficult to replace the glue you use!
