My new video fave is DVDPlay, video rental boxes that are now appearing in Genuardis (part of the Safeway grocery store chain). The boxes are winning me over on two fronts: price ($1.49, except for a special 99 cent price on Mondays) and selection (so far I haven't been shut out of renting any new releases).
I left out one other advantage--convenience. I'm at Genuardis all the time as the designated food shopper in my household. Combining video rentals with my food shopping saves time and gas.
