Rentcaddy update

Time to give another plug to the Rentcaddy. I've already mentioned it about three times on this blog, but since Carl is still loving it, I'm posting his follow-up review.

It's been a little over a year since I reviewed the Rentcaddy, and I thought I'd give an update.

A year later, I'm still using my Rentcaddy. I've hauled it with me to conventions and on vacation. It's held up incredibly well and looks practically brand-new. I don't really have anything new to say about the product... just that a year later, I'm still using it and I think it was money very well spent.

Mmm. One thing I realized that I had missed in my earlier review. The pockets to hold the sleeves are bigger than the pockets to hold the discs... they're specifically designed for the purpose. I'm still separating the sleeve and disc into their own pockets. (You may recall that I questioned why one would want to do this.) It makes it easy to immediately see which disc is out or where I'm supposed to put the disc I've got in my hand. I don't use the retainer-flap over the disc, even when I'm traveling... it's just too much bother. I've only once dumped a disc on the floor. Just have to remember not to invert it.

If you'll recall, I bought one for my mom last Christmas. I see it on her coffee table regularly, and asked her how she liked it the other day (which is what made me think to write this). She loves it. Not only does it keep all discs and return envelopes organized, it keeps them looking neat and tidy on the coffee table.

I can heartily recommend the Rentcaddy as a Christmas gift for friends and family on Netflix. (Or one of those other rental services, if they must.)

The rentcaddy folks have given me absolutely zero incentives to plug their merchandise.

  2. Glad to hear you're still using it Carl! Thanks so much for the mention.

  3. I have seen and compared many good DVD rental sites. Above all of them
    I like the most. Reason behind is their
    detailed orientation about dvd business. Site first explains working
    of a dvd rental system through images and then it tells you about benefits
    above conventional system. Gradually it will take you to links of all the
    provider sites that offer rental service like Netflix, Blockbuster, Intelliflix,
    DVD Avenue, CinemaNow...I have seen some links for Games and Music. Probably
    site owners are now adding more colors to this site.
