I admit I'm seeing a lot more long waits on BB than I did no Netflix. I put Water for Elephants on the queue over a month ago and still showed very long wait. In fact I waited long enough that I was able to get it at RedBox instead.
I have a dozen titles in my queue and only TWO are very long wait... as if that never happens at Netflix. Some people just love to complain.
When Netflix gives me HD channels, console games, DVD by mail w/ in-store exchange/return, then they will be the better of the two.
i've had 2 on very long wait for 7 months now,they have been at the top of my queue and they have never shipped. they are older movies.
