The Mailman Did It!

I've always been amazed by the reliability of the US Postal Service with regard to Netflix. No movies mailed to me have gone missing and they've always received every movie I've mailed back. And the turnover has always been just one day. For me, that was a pretty huge example of the USPS' trustworthiness and reliability. But after seeing this, I guess I should be glad that the Bay Area postal workers are more trustworthy :-)

If Netflix is in CA that could explain your 1 day turnover. USPS is just average overall.I guess you have been a little bit more luckier.

when i was a member of netflix, i didnt have any problems whatsoever with getting the DVDs or them receiving it...but the few indian sites that 've tried to ape netflix- i havent had pleasant experiences with them...except for the one u recommended (the one where ur reviews are xtensively used) none of them were good at getting the movies to me...and with that site u recommended (i dont remember the name) i didnt think they had that great a collection maybe coz i have mini-library of movies myself:)

vijay, yeah Netflix certainly has a shipping center nearby. the return envelope has a San Jose PO Box. As for USPS, i was talking more about the trustworthiness here. the fact that not a single disc has been lost since i signed up.

ram, so what kinda problems have u seen with the indian sites? just quality of the discs or even receiving them safely?
