    I've used Movietrak to rent DVD's and the service has been brills so far. They also do ex-rental DVD's for sale and the condition is mint as the boxes are never used during the time they were hired out . I just bought :

    1. XXX
    2. Reign of Fire
    3. Sweetest Thing
    4. Bad company
    5. Murder by numbers
    6. A Beautiful Mind
    7. Panic Rooom
    8. Birthday Girl

    For just under £60. Hope this info is of use to someone.

    Thats a really good price considering the likes of blockbuster sell them for about £15 each, but what kind of condition are the discs in?

    Shoka,
    I've had no problems with either the rental DVD's I've had in the past or the sale DVD's. The last one I bought was 8 legged freaks for £5.99. Why not try just buying one and see if your impressed ?

    Where can you get details of rental dvd specs - can't find what audio tracks these DVD's have.

    Bourne Identity for 7.99 looks interesting?

    Are there any other sites that do this so I can compare prices?

    AD,
    Can't see why the audio tracks would be different just because it was a rental copy. But you could try asking them directly for specific info. They have answered my queries promptly in the past.

    Oh you'd be surprised. There is a big discussion going on in DVD Talk at the moment concerning the R2 rental of Donnie Darko - it appears it has only a DD 2.0 soundtrack whereas the R2 purchase release will be 5.1.

    My worries exactly - I guess if I decide to buy any I'll just have to ask first!

    discs arrived in two days, both in very good condition, slight damage to the MIIB box, but I am not too worried about that.

    Thanks for the tip type23 - I'll keep an eye on the Movietrak site in future!

    Hi CooperUK, Can you tell me if the MIIB is 1disc or 2disc, because the picture on the site doesn't say 2disc as it does say 2disc on the Play site and every where else. [​IMG]

    The MIIB is the 2-disc version - and a bargain it is too!!

    :clap: :D :clap: :D :clap:

    If you have a look at the enlarged pictures on the site, you can see whether or not the disc is a rental only version from the strip either at the top or bottom. This of course may not hold true for all discs, but is a good indicator for an initial scan of what you can expect.

    I was going to order Bourne Identity but it is the Rental version with no extras.

    Another problem I have with them is that, currently, they will only deliver to the card holders address. My 3 Hounds From hell would love to get their teeth into it so it's a non starter at the moment.

    Just wanted to say that I ordered 8 Legged Freaks from Movietrak for £5.99 on 14th April & it arrived this morning (15th), in mint condition - What a fantastic service!

    I would definitely use them again. Thanks for all the comments on movietraks service.

    i ordered 4 more dvds from movietrak, delivery was superfast, ordered thursday, arrived friday!

    however, 3 of the discs have a metal tamper proof security seal on them. Anyone else had discs with this on?

    My concern is that the metal sticker will make the disc unbalanced and therefore it may not spin correctly, with the prospect of long term use maybe damaging the player.

    anyone taken a look at their new look website yet? looks good but there's something fuinny happening with the xrental dvds. the prices yesterday were all up at over £24 each and today they're all sitting at £14.99.

    that's quite an increase. especially on titles like murder by numbers wich was only £4.99 before!

    I e-mailed them to ask what was happening and this is the response:

    Dear Michael

    Thank you for your e-mail.

    Unfortunately this is a technical problem we are having at the moment. We hope it shall be rectified by the end of the week.

    Best wishes

    How difficult could it be to get the correct prices on your website if this is your bread and butter? Personally I'd lock the IT guys in the building until they'd fixed it.

    However, I've been very happy with their service in the past.

    The other day everything was £14.99 and today most movies are £19.99 including Daredevil, 8-mile etc

    Has anybody bought anything while the prices are screwed. There is a little advert for gangs of new york for £9.99 but when you click on the link its £19.99:mad:

    Come on Movietrak sort it out!!
