NetFlix.com is fantastic for a number of reasons, not the least of which is their company identity / personality. This company really gives the impression of being a good corporate citizen. I mean, they are not "greed" based. They are extremely inexpensive for the service they deliver. SO cheap for what you get that you might even feel guilty using this service! They recently raised their prices but ONLY because the movie studios were giving them a hard time because they weren't making enough of a profit. Even with the higher price structure, this is still the greatest bargain I've ever seen! Also, picture quality and speed is terrific. They also get 5 stars on the movies they recommend I watch based on the ones I liked.

Seriously, FreshDirect.com has got to be the MOST WELL-DESIGNED website on the Internet! I love using their interface to shop for groceries. Unlike most websites, Freshdirect uses really clean, simple, tables and code. It's fast and doesn't require plug-ins to use. I find their food quality to be above average, not always perfect, but certainly higher quality than a "Shop Rite". The delivery people are clean-cut and professional. Items are always well packed, not crushed or dirty.

Two problems:
1. The prices are pretty high. Freshdirect is far more expensive than a trip to a major grocer.
2. Limited selection. Missing common brand-names and size selection is also limited. I've emailed them several times requesting "Marie Calender" frozen foods but they still don't carry any frozen dinners by this brand.

Ubid.com used to be a great site, but I'm talking YEARS ago. I think they went downhill simply because they could never get a following. It used to be that you had a good chance at getting a deal if you kept up with the auctions but then things started happening that made no sense, like I was bidding against a bot. After several experiences where at the last second I was outbid, I stopped bothering with them.

Extremely accurate & informative News Analysis and funny Satire of Real news, an unusual combination!
NO ads on the RANT.com website which is REFRESHING and worth a visit just to see THAT! (Is this the ONLY website on the Internet that is ad-free?!)

Update 8. 20. 2011: The authors / writers state that RANT.com has never allowed advertising in order to guarantee unbiased news perspectives that are
"Beyond The
Peripheral Vision"
(their tm not mine)
It's unusually good writing for a website, informative - yet entertaining, but it's not updated often enough, my only complaint.
