Since my post a couple months ago, I bumped up my account to 2 discs out at a time instead of 1 and it appears to be working better the last few weeks. Still not as fast as it used to be, and they also aren't as good about updating their queue list for short/very long waits.

For example, I've had Gemini Man in my queue since it was released to rent back in January, and it still shows as a short wait. Usually a movie like that (didn't do very well theatrically, not that popular) would only show a short wait for about a month max, but it's over 2 now. That is not the definition of "short wait" to me.

So yeah, they certainly seem to have fewer copies going around is the only logical explanation I can think of for these changes. I am curious about what method they use for mailing the discs. Is it based on the ranking in one's queue, so simply a rotation of who's next in line to get a disc based on when they mailed back the previous disc.

It appears for me that they've generally changed disc ETAs to two days.

If they were to add 4K discs to a plan I would totally subscribe. Until they do, and this pandemics subsides, I will use Redbox for my physical media rental needs.

I'm done with it. I have gotten so many defective discs that either skip a bunch of simply won't play. I report it, readd it to my queue then I seem to get the same disc again a few weeks later. Whatever I'll just buy it cheap somewhere on eBay.

I'm still a member of their disc club but I only get 2 discs now and keep them way longer than I use to. I signed up before streaming was even a thing. I now pay for their streaming and their disc club. It's still the way I watch new movies. I switched to BD a few years ago. I haven't had a bad disc in a very, very long time.

I still get 1 to 2 bad discs per year and the mail service is a wee bit slower than it once was, but it's still the best way for me. Most of the discs on my queue just aren't available in the streaming service.

Anyone do 3 discs at a time? I do 2 DVDs right now but am thinking about upgrading to possibly 3 and BD. Just worried 3 might be too many.

How much better is BD image/sound quality compared to DVD that's upscaled?

Yes, three at a time. Not enough but someone told me there's more to life than movies and music. Dunno 'bout that though.

I do 3, but have thinking of going down to 2 per month.

What upscaling does: tries to simulate the same resolution only, but isn't quite as good (the fake bits are just dups of neighboring bits). I suppose, resolution wise, it might be enough for me for general viewing, if it weren't for the following:

What upscaling does not do: everything else. It does not give you the full dynamic range of HD, so details will still be lost in deep shadows or bright areas. It does not give you HD color depth, so gradations of color will not be smooth (an obvious sign of this is seeing banding in the sky or other smooth surfaces) and the color will not be accurate.

Edit: banding, for instance: a scene of a horizon with large amount of sky above it, the hue of the sky at the horizon is a different than the color up near the top of the screen. With HD (or UHD) color depth, you will see a smooth gradation of many thousands of colors giving you something that looks like sky. With SD, there are a much smaller number of colors available to render the sky, so you will see those as a smaller number of 'bands' of color arcing across the sky (4, 8, maybe 12 bands, certainly not thousands). The bands move as the camera moves across the scene, which is very distracting to me, but I know that some of my friends never notice it.

Interesting to me that the sabotage of the USPS is causing even deeper delays in my experience for 3D-BlurayRental.com rentals but Netflix is still timely.

The reason of his endeavor is to stop the absentee ballots from being shipped and delivered to the U.S citizens because he knew that he was going to lose the election, so his scheme didn't work because he still lost.

Didn't know this is still going. It's tempting for the nostalgia factor. I'd bet people who get mail in procrastinate less what to watch.

It's not "nostalgia" when you can get movies on blu-ray that aren't available for streaming

In fact, MOST of the films in my netflix disc queue are not available for streaming. And many that do appear for streaming don't stay there.
