Mailbox DVD Rental Service


.Formerly a good site, but taken over by Screenselect years ago

Mailbox DVD Rental Review
Mailbox Movies went out of business in mid-2005; we keep this review as it was for historical interest. Visit Mailbox Movies Site

Mailbox claims to be the oldest unlimited DVD rental company in the UK, and carries a robust inventory of 27,000+ titles. Although Mailbox Movies allows member reviews, there don't appear to be many. In addition, several films we looked at lacked data on stars, directors, etc. It is one of the few sites that offer a good selection of console game cartridges--71 for xbox, 122 for Playstation 2, 50 for PS One, and 16 for GameCube. We've heard good reports about the swift and courteous customer service, an area some big DVD rental companies have problems with. However, there have been complaints about Mailbox Movies's selection and turnaround time. Mailbox recently was acquired by DVD 365 and is now "powered by" that service. But unlike most "powered by" sites, we believe it retains its distinctive feel and identity, and we do not hesitate in continuing to recommend it.

In June 2005, Screenselect announced it was acquiring rival DVD 365 along with its three affiliate companies Qflicks, Movietrak, and Mailbox Movies (see new story). Given the inevitable disruption during the takeover, we'd steer clear from this site for a few months.

We gave Mailbox the highest ranking of all the UK sites "powered by" the big three companies, simply because it retains a distinct look and feel from its DVD 365 parent; it may be the exception to our philosophy that the "powering" site is always far better than the "powered by" site. It has a slight price and phone support edge over the next best "powered by" contender, Qflicks.

Prices: Mail Box Movies charges only £9.47 for a single disc, £12.97 for two discs, £14.97 for three discs, £20.97 for four discs, and £24.97 for five discs. We also love the fact that unlike some companies, game rentals are not on a higher tariff, and count just as regular DVDs. There is no free trial period, but on subscription you do get your second month free.
