Sarah and Seth tipped me off to a new Netflix Shipping Center in Des Moines. If you live in the area, has this increased decreased your turnaround time?

Don't you mean "decreased" turnaround time?

Yeah, what she said.
Just 2 hours down the road from me. And yet last week took the longest ever for me to have movies shipped. I sent them back on Friday, they received them on Monday, I didn't have new ones shipped until Wednesday and got them on Friday.
Lets hope this isn't a trend.

I don't know where my movies are shipped from (I'm in Memphis area) but is it really true that a lot of you have 1-2 day turnarounds? I had one shipped today to me and it is expected to arrive on the 13th. Is that about average, worse than average? That's a typical pattern for us - 3-4 day turnarounds. I wish I could find out what other people in my area are getting for turnaround time from Netflix. Thanks.

I am in Dallas and I dropped off a movie yesterday and I get my new one tomorrow.
BUT, I drop it off at a Post office which is 10 yards away from where I work.

From Atlanta to NW Florida I get 2-3 day delivery (usually 3). Returns are 3-4 days (not counting weekends either). I am 300 miles from the dist. center.

It's about a 4 day turnaround for me and it's 45 miles to Indianapolis. My movies always, ALWAYS get delayed an extra day for no reason. They get in monday, and by 9:00 Mon morning they'll say "shipping tuesday".
Unlike Blockbuster, which ships on Saturdays.

In response to my the second comment, that I made earlier, I think the reason I had such a long turnaround was because i was getting switched to this new distribution center that is much closer to where I am. I think my dics were mailed back to minneapolis and then they had to notify des moines to ship me my new ones. I suspect the delay was from this new center opening. I sent back another disc yesterday and it has already been received. If this speed-up holds true, one week of delay will be worth it in the end.

I live in Michigan and I am really lucky. I have a USPS mail sorting facility 5 miles from me. I drop my netflix off directly there. The Netflix distro center is in Lansing, about an hour away from me. My turnarounds are a guaranteed 2 days.

Also in the Dallas area, but in a small town 60 miles away from the Coppell, TX distribution center. We cancelled Netflix when we moved a couple of years back, figuring that the shipping times would be awful. But we came back, and after a month and a half, it's pretty amazing: in the rural mailbox Monday, at Netflix Tuesday, movie in the mailbox Wednesday. Whoever they're bribing at the USPS is delivering their money's worth. :)

Yeah, I've noticed a big time improvement. I can get movies out Wednesday and have the next batch by Friday. I'm about 40 miles north of DM.

I got a few movies from Des Moines overnight. Now it seems to be taking ages. Return a movie on Monday they are getting it on Wednesday. They ship the next movie on Friday and I got it on Tuesday. Im 100 miles from Des Moines.

It's worse now than it ever was. I am a few hours from Des Moines... Once moved into my "At home" area, it still takes the movies another day to be shipped and the "Est. Arrival" is like 3 days longer than my prior movies that were shipped from Kansas City. Plus all the movies at the top of my list get skipped week after week. It's not worth the cost for me to get mostly old releases. If these things keep up I'm switching to blockbuster.com

Just moved to West Des Moines from Phoenix and must say the turnaround time is awful, ive lived in Denver, Phoenix and San Fran and had little or no problems in any of those places( i actually loved the service there). Last week I was sent 2 extra movies that i had viewed before and still got again for some reason even though they were no longer in my queue. So i had a total of 5 movies, I sent ALL 5 of them back on Friday at the same time and so far at the end of today (monday) they have only "recieved" the 2 that i wasnt supposed to get in the first place. The other ones are still in limbo somewhere even though all were sent at the same time. It doesnt take 3 days to mail something across town. Ive had nothing but problems since i moved here. Im writing netflix an email telling them if they dont improve their service in Des Moines really soon im switching to Blockbuster.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT YOUR AVERAGE DES 56 BIT eNCRYPTION KEY ONLY REQUIRES 22 HOURS 10 MINUTES TO DECIPHER WITH THE DES DECRIPTIPON COMPUTER
A MESSAGE THOUGH WITH 3 DES WITH A 128 BIT ENCRYPTION KEY YOUR AVERAGE TIME TO FIND THE KEY AND DECRYPT A MESSAGE WITH THE DES DECIPHERING MACKINE IS 5,400,000,000,000,000 YEARS WHICH IS FIVE QUINTRILLION 400 QUADRILLIONY YEARS ACCORIDING TO THE MATHEMATICAL EQUATION TO GO THROUGH ALL THE POSIIBLE EQUATIONS, GIVEN YOU WOULD PROBABLY FIND THE KEY WITHIN THE FIRST HALF OF THE EQUATIONS BY COMPUTER STANDARDS YOU STILL WOULD REQUIRE APPROXIAMATELY 2 QUINTRILLION 700 QUADRILLION YEARS TO FIGURE OUT THE KEY AND CODE USING A BRUTE FORCE ATTACK THAT CIPHERS THOUGH A MILLION POSSIBILITIES A SECOND LIKE THE COMPUTER USED SPECIFICALLY FOR CRACKING THE 56 BIT DES STANDARD UNLIKE THE COMPUTER DESKTOPS THAT WE USE CURRENTLY THAT ONLY CIPHER THROUGH 1- 4 POSSIBILITIES A SECONDS WHICH YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW LONG THAT WOULD TAKE, THE CURRENT COMPUTER THAT WAS BUILT TO BREAK THROUGH THE 56 BIT DES ONLY TOOK 22 HOURS 10 MINUTES WHILE IT WAS WORKING WITH OVER 100,000 OTHER DESKTOP COMPUTERS WORLDWIDE BY ITS SELF IT TOOK A LITTLE OVER THREE DAYS JUST TOGIVE THE COMPUTING POWER OF THIS SINGLE MACHINE WHICH TOO OVER $250,000 DOLLARS US CURRENCY TO MAKE, MY OPINION IS THAT IF WE CONTINUE TO USE TRIPLE DES FOR INFORMATION SECURITY IN MILITARY AND OTHER OPERATIONS THAT REQUIRE SECURITY AS LONG AS NO ONE DISPLAYS A WEAKNESS LIKE THEY DID IN IN DES AND EXPLOIT IT THEN WE SHOULD BE SECURE PLENTY LONG ENOUGH FOR ANY IDEA OR PLAN TO FOLLOW THROUGH. ALTHOUGH I DO BELIEVE THAT WE CHOULD LOOK FOR WEAKNESSES JUST NOT EXPLOIT THEM.

Des Moines does have shipping center now. It is INSANE how fast you get stuff. I dropped my two return movies in the mail box on the way to work (7am) monday and today (tues) I had an email saying they got them back and had already sent to the next two on my list.
