Do you rent SD-DVD's from Netflix? (HD owners)

I've only been a Netflix subscriber for about a month, and I have rented around 20 movies, all BR or HD DVD. My wife added about 7 SD movies to the Queue, but every time they get near the top, I bump them down a couple pegs. I figure once we see all the HD discs we want, then we can start working on some SD's.

Do you mix SD's in with your HD's?

Yes. They're after the HD ones, though.

I did rent Flags of Our Fathers, since even though I want to own it, there was no point in buying it when an HD disc is pretty likely.

I have a mix but it's mostly HD/BD discs at this point. I'm in the middle of getting season 1 of Rome. No way I was going to spend the $89 that it costs to buy.

Mostly just TV shows, which are the only SD DVD releases worth watching IMO. If the film I want to see isn't out on BD/HD I can play the waiting game.

Sure. Most of the stuff I want to watch isn't on HD. I have 350 movies in my queue. Maybe 5 are HD DVDs right now.

Just depends what I want to watch. I mainly use Netflix for the movies I don't really think are worth a purchase but I still want to see.

All the HD/BD discs I want are at the top...but since most are long wait (Blockbuster.com) I have others mixed in.....kinda sucks though, as Blockbuster ships the movie that is closest to you. So, if a HD movie says Available, but SD movie is closer, I get that.

i ONLY rent SD-DVDs. I actually refused to rent since DVDs came out (because blockbuster screwed me over back in the VHS days pretty bad) but now that I don't want to buy SD-DVDs (except TV shows) all new releases that don't get put out in BR or HD just get rented.I use blockbuster though because I like their all access plan so I can go in there and get double the movies if I want to and a free game.
