» Peerflix from So Very Posh

Peerflix sounds like an interesting idea.  Basically you list DVDs you want and DVDs you have and then trade them among their users.  They send you postage paid envelopes, don't charge any member fees, but there is a $1 charge per tra... [Read More]

That service sounds kinda scary... Note the line "Of equal or lesser value". I wonder how they come up with that?

Jerky

I did a comparison that included Peerflix a couple months back. Read it here:
http://www.sportingrumors.com/weblog/archives/2004_08.html

It's a fairly decent service provided you have DVDs that you don't mind parting with and are in somewhat demand. You definately aren't going to get as many DVDs through Peerflix as you do through Netflix, but it's not bad for the price.

I've never received a damaged DVD from Peerflix. Shipping times vary from less than 3 days after you get notification that someone sent you a DVD to over a month. It all depends on how reliable the other person is.

Chris

I just signed up for the trial and it looks like I only have two free mailings...it's kind of hard to figure out where to find the terms of the agreement after you sign up. I guess I can receive two DVD's before they charge me $4.95. I am not sure where to find all that info on the website.

Brian

Chris, why would they charge you $5? It says it's $1 per trade. Anyone other than Jerky been using the service?

Chris

I am sending them a question on where to find the terms of the agreement and the priceing info. I'll post back when I find out.
It sounded like as soon as I am shipped my third movie i would be charged $4.95. And then again after my 5th movie...something like that. I guess they charge you $5 for 5 movies? Thats what i want to find out.

Ersatz

How is this new promotion different/better than the current one? ("FIRST 3 TRADES FREE!!! New customers will receive a credit for $3 towards your first 3 trades immediately after signing up. You do not need a credit card to try peerflix. No commitments. No hassles. Cancel anytime.")

Here's how I see it:
Current promotion:
3 free DVDs
first 10 trades free

Tuesday's promotion:
2 free DVDs
2 free trades instead of 10?
free CD case (whoopee!)

What am I missing?

Luke

I tried the service for 6 months, ending one month ago. During that time, it was $5 a month for unlimited trades. I was shipped (free of charge) extra envelopes and CD sleeves whenever I needed them. The selection of DVDs available through other users was pretty terrible for my tastes, but pretty decent for popular movies that have come out in the past 5 years and some cult classics.

Apparently, they've changed the service quite a bit in the last month, but there were many reasons I cancelled a month ago:

1. Titles I wanted to see were not available.
2. Shipping times were very slow (and once, somebody changed his mind and decided not to send a DVD that he told Peerflix he'd sent a week before).
3. When you recieve a DVD and keep it, you don't have the original case and documentation to go with it, so it doesn't look to good in a simply jewel case in your DVD collection. Of course, even bigger problems occur with multi-disc movies.
4. Remember, you pay for shipping, though it's not that much.

So, I dunno. Maybe nothing I have to say matters because the service is apparently so different. For example, when I was with Peerflix, all trades were 'free' (it was just $5 a month), you started out with 5 'points' (if you shipped DVDs, you gained points. When you recieved DVDs, you lost points. Common titles were 1-2 points. Rarer titles were anywhere from 3-7 points).

That being said, I never once recieved a cracked or unplayable DVD, the customer service was very helpful when there were hiccups in the system, and it was cheap (though, it's more expensive now at $1 a trade).

If the service becomes popular enough to carry titles I'm interested in seeing, I'll reconsider joining up.

That's my experience.

Brian

Well the good thing about $1 per trade versus the $5 a month is that you can use it as often you need to. I have 4 or 5 DVDs that I'm thinking about trading, but after that I don't think I would do it very often. Since there's now no monthly fee, I can just trade when I feel like it with movies I'm tired of.

Mwillyb

$1 a trade is expensive?

Okay $1.37 a trade.

That's still like a one time fee of the cost of Dvds- say $20x3 for 3 plan equivalent. But presumably you're sending dvds that you already have and that you would be able to resell for a fraction of that.

so $1.37 a trade, pay as you go.
Divide $19.47 by that and its less expensive if you watch less than 15 DVDs a month. Also far less expensive than if you watched stuff from blockbuster.

in the summers when i am on hiatus, I pound through a lot of dvds. in the winter, like now, I could hold something for as much as a week. peerflix doesnt cost anything til I switch it.

However i use netflix for selection and back catalog, so while i'll be trying this out, i think it will only be concurrent with netflix.

And where's the game service? I would be all over that with my craptastic ps2 games.

"you will be able to receive movies of equal or lesser value within 1 to 5 days"

Does this mean I cant trade up my public domain Jack Benny tv episodes for Spiderman 2 ?

bark

i've been using it for a couple of months and it has worked as advertised.

negatives: weak title selection, but it is a young service and as folks join the selection should improve. and sometimes your peers can be um flakes. the site and navigation are also weak, but they are in beta. recent titles degrade in value (just like in a store).

positives: good customer service. i control the expense by how much i trade. i like that a lot. and it is a low expense. i have found some deals on movies i want. i live in the sticks and i can't get to a store easily, so it is a very helpful service for me.

if you buy used dvds in the store that have a good peerbux value you can keep the expense down and enjoy a lot of titles. all in all it's been a good value for me. but i want you to sign up and trade our good titles so i have more to choose from.

i don't know why you'd drop it, unless you run out of movies you want to trade, since it doesn't cost anything to maintain. but after a few viewings i am willing to let most any title go.

ps: my sweetheart suggested that there should be a similar service for music CDs. is there?

Chad

I just signed up for an account. They charge $4.95 for increments of 5 movies. The current promotion gives you one free selection from 16 titles and 2 peerbucks to use on another movie. Movies cost between 1-3 peerbucks. Looks promising, especially if it gets popular.

Tom

From the terms of service:

8. DVDs will be in playable condition but will not necessarily be brand new. Peerflix is not responsible and will not be liable in the event you receive a scratched, broken or otherwise unplayable DVD. There are no returns or credits.

That certainly doesn't sound like Netflix. None the less, I just signed up but you can bet they'll have a fight on their hands if they try to screw me.

joevideo

I just signed up.... this seems kinda scammy, but i'll try it anyway. which free DVD did you pick? i picked kill bill 2.

JUAN GABRIEL

VERY GOOD

Ron

I think the concept behind Peerflix is great. It's the implementation that is terrible. How long has there software been Beta? One year? Everything they're doing is pretty basic. Just database manipulation. Yet they can't even get that right. And there is no customer service. When their software doesn't work correctly, which is often, they will not respond to emails or correct the problem. Expect your DVD trades to cost 50% more than expected because of the trades and Peerbux they take from your account without actually sending you a DVD.

Johnny

bark,
You were asking about a service for CD trading. I've been using a site, http://www.titletrader.com for several months. It allows trading for CDs, as well as DVDs and books. The best part is that its free and people will ship the whole case.

Unlike peerflix where you are restricted to only movies and you pay per trade. At GatorPond you get UNLIMITED trading of not only dvd's, but vhs, music cd's, and video games as well. Visit http://www.GATORPOND.com for more info. REFERRED BY DALE SMITHEY during the sign-up process. Thanks. Dale :)

If you want to trade DVDs, CDs and Video Games you have to try out...

http://www.switchdiscs.com

They are BY FAR the best out there and it is 100% FREE unlike peerflix which charges you $1 per trade. Who wants to pay $1 to trade your own DVDs? They don't even do anything and yet they want my $1?

SwitchDiscs site is better, their service is better, they offer the ability to trade DVDs, CDs & Video Games and it's FREE!

I used to use peerflix but not anymore. I suggest you try both out at the same time and you will see the difference.

Thanks!
