Manuel's Netflix Site Has Been Updated

Manuel has made a Web site detailing his experience renting anime from Netflix. He lives in the Detroit area. He's been a member since August 2003 and as of June 2004, he's received 312 discs, eight of which were damaged and two mislabelled.

    Sorry, Netflix doesn't do it for me. First, they posted a huge raise in their rates in june, not making it such a deal anymore. Then I got the impression that they were "staggering" or intentionally delaying when they sent movies out, if you returned them too quickly. I cancelled their service and found a comparable one at a lesser price. Walmart. Granted not as big a selection for the categories of foreign film, independent, etc, but for the general audience, I find them perfectly acceptable with a better price and much better service (quick turnaround).

    I do get the impression that they stagger the movies if you send them back too quickly. But all in all I can't complain.

    I love Netflix!! I like paying a flat fee and then not having to pay a huge late fee if I am returning it 15 minutes late, like Blockbuster's is charging. I was spending more on late fees for four movies rented from Blockbuster's on a weekend than I do for the whole month at Netflix. And I really like the selection! and the way they make suggestions and I really like being able to read both Critics' and viewers' opinions. Terrific service for my family!!

    Netflix is startign to suck big time for me. I have the 5 out at a time plan and normally I was able to get over 20 movies a month. Now i am lucky if I can get 10-15. Blockbuster Videos new Month mong Pass might be the way to go for me. True BV selection isn't that great, but I will at least get my moneys worth. I can control how many movies I get and not Netflix.

    Has anyone found out what the deal is with the movies not shipping as regularly? True profit is a good thing but not at the expense of the customer.

    Netflix if you are listening, please fix the problem. About to lose another customer.

    Reason Wal-mart gives better services is probably cause they are outsourcing Netflix and makes more money off of Wal-mart than their own customers. Happens in all industries.

    really sucks

    You can still use Netflix recommendations and services even if you cancel your subscription. Yahoo even has a database you can set up to transfer all you movie ratings.

    Are there any Hate Netflix Sites? That is what I need right now. I am currently ANTI-Netflix.com

    Hey -- home does this cost? I hear so much bad publicity.

    The good publicity outnumbers the bad a thousand to one. However, if you still would like to complain, start with the customer service section of Netflix.com. That's what they are optimized for. Read the Frequently Asked Questions. If you want to write a letter see the Press Room section. Or you can try these suggestions from the Federal Government's Consumer Protection Agency.

    Wow, am I the only one who's had a favorable experience with Netflix? I've been a member for 2 years and have been on the standard 3-out plan for the majority of my membership (maybe that's why?). Anyway, I love it because I'm a rabid anime hound and I can get just about everything that's available, and I get very few "Long Waits" in the availability column. I live in socal so it's possibly a distribution center thing, I don't know, but I just wanted to say that I've had very few problems so far (2 unplayable discs total). Hmm.
