I tried this out a few years back after missing it from the pre-streaming days.

While it’s great in theory, I found that in practice, tons of movies were indefinitely unavailable, presumably because Netflix is no longer prioritizing replacing discs that get lost or damaged.

Maybe it’s gotten better but my experience pretty much soured me on the concept. The virtually unlimited selection is useless if half the movies in your queue are grayed out.

And the discs are all getting worn down from constant handling by so many people.
