    I've just been reading the swapgame thread, and i'm tempted to sign up but i was wondering if there were any other recommendations that also rent dvd's? I've used Loavefilm before and was not impressed with their service

    Thanks

    I'm in Lovefilm and the service is great.

    They now rent Wii & PS3 games as well as 360 and xbox games.

    Turnaround is normally 2 days.

    I would give Lovefilm another go, I have been with them for 2 months and have found them to be very good.

    You can get a 90 day free trial from http://www.hotukdeals.com/main.html
    (even if you have been with them before)

    Game frenzy are ok as well but they never seem to have the game i want, turn around is a couple of days and one time i had a game arrived that was snapped. I sent it back and told them it arrived in that condition and they were fine.

    I've been with Lovefilm for years now (since when they were Screenselect) I find them great for both games and DVDs, the only proble I have with renting games is lack of a manual. Which is fine if there's a decent in-game tutorial, unfortunately, that's not always the case.

    If I change the package then it will charge me and the 90 day trial will stop won't it? I didn't have an option to choose a package when I signed up with the 90 free day trial.

    i joined lovefilm a few weeks ago, then after i joined i went to add a game to my list and discovered the package i had wanted didn't allow games!

    I'm positive this wasn't made clear until after i sgned up, could be wrong though...
    I then rang them to cancel and was offered 3 months for the price of one, so could be worth a try for anyone else out there.

    I'm now with Boomerang, had about 3 games so far, all top of my list :thumbsup:

    Have been with Lovefilm for about 3 weeks now - so far so good. One disc went missing though and I never recieved it (it was Fuzion Frenzy) - told them about it and was told I will need to fill out a form to avoid getting a charge. Other than that, the turnaround time is top-notch.
