I LOVE netflix! Basically there are two components to it. The instant-streaming and the dvds. We have the 1 at a time dvd plan. 

I will say this… it is not perfect. The movies do come really fast (if I put one in the mail on Wednesday I get a new one on Friday), but sometimes it can be frustrating to only get one dvd at a time. Especially over a lazy weekend or if you’re watching a tv series on dvd because some shows (*cough*trueblood*cough*) only have like 2 episodes per dvd. The instant streaming is really cool when you’re bored… but don’t expect it to have that many things you look for. It is better for just browsing and deciding to watch something rather than saying “oo I wonder if it has x” because chances are it won’t have it. 

But, despite the problems I really like it because its cheap and I like having random b list movies and documentaries to watch when i’m bored.

I’ve only had it a few months but really like it so far. I used the instant play feature a lot, there is a more limited selection but I can watch certain movies or tv shows through the ps3, on my laptop, or even on my iPhone.  We still get 1 disc at a time, but I’m usually pretty slow about returning those.

Fiance has it, and we just use the Watch Instantly feature. It’s pretty amazing for the $9 a month he spends on it :).

We used to have it and it was okay. We cancelled it though because it was kind of an unnecessary expense.

We have it and really enjoy it. I agree with some of the others who said it can be really frustrating when you want to watch something and it’s DVD only. I heard a rumor that they’ll be going to only instant watch soon….

Yes and LOVE it. Can’t beat it for $8.99/mo. So worth it, I watch a lot of documentaries and the boy loves his Family Guy, haha. And yeah, there aren’t really “new releases” but there are so many I haven’t seen.

— We use it on the Wii

I LOOOOOOOVE NETFLIX!  My fiance and I decided to start trying it in November and it’s awesome.  Most of what we want is on their instant watch list and if it isn’t, the DVDs come w/in two days.

I use it all the time! I don’t use the DVDs that often, but the instant streaming video makes it really easy to watch lots of TV shows.  Definitely worth the $9.

I really love it – I stream it through my Wii to my TV.  I’m in Canada and it just came out in September so we don’t have all the new releases that come out on it in the US.  The newest movies on it are a couple of months old.  Even so, it’s totally worth it for the money…we save so much not renting from a store.  They put new movies on it all the time, you can never run out.  Also, I find I have watched a lot of different things that I never would have necessarily rented, such as documentaries.  TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT!

I love Netflix!!

We get the DVDs in the mail, plus the streaming disc plus now we can use it on the PS3 without the streaming disc.

My understanding is that is going to stream-only in the future. I’ve been finding that they’ve been putting alot more movies on the “instant watch”.

It’s perfect for my Fiance and I because I love old British movies and I can get them all on netflix. Fiance loves his HBO shows and such. I love the national geographic documentaries too. You can go into your account online, pick movies there and create an “instant queque” so that your movies are lined up on one page.

I highly recommend it.

I love Netflix. For $9.00 a month it’s a steal. I got rid of cable because I have the Wii on the main TV and the kids each have PS3, and we can stream right to the TV through those. They have tons of TV shows and movies to choose from…granted they are not the new releases, but we get those one at a time, and they come in the mail fast.

LOVE NETFLIX!  We have one of the larger plans (instant streaming, 3 DVDs at a time, and Blueray) because we’re both total media addicts, but we get a lot of use out of it.  We use the instant streaming all the time (through the XBOX) and set up a sub-account for me so we each have our own DVD queues.  I would totally recommend it.

Oh, and we first got it when we didn’t have cable – it totally made up for it!  Cable’s included in our rent now, but we still use the Netflix quite a bit.
