The service Netflix provide is great - the site is easy to navigate, the movies stream really fast and the price is great. The only downside is that the range of title available is pretty small. You can work through all the good stuff pretty quickly, unlike Lovefilm which has pretty much everything ever released. A lot of Netflix content are TV shows from Channel 4 (such as the Inbetweeners and Shameless) which are available to watch for free on Channel 4's steaming site, so not sure why you would need a paid for account on Netflix to watch them.
I use lovefilm for renting DVDs and computer games on disc, which they are great at. Discs arrive fast and in good condition. Their range of titles is really impressive. There are some they dont have, but not many. Much wider variety than Netflix, although also quite a bit more expensive.
- Great control panel site (attractive and easy to navigate)
- Fast site hosting
- Long opening hours for telephone customer service
- Bit pricey
- Doesn't feature a 1-click Wordpress installation (many other hosting sites do). This means you have to do a fidily manual install which is not ideal.
- Their customer service call centre is based overseas, which makes calls a bit of pain as you have to try and understand instruction from a foreigner with poor English.

- great control panel site (attractive and easy to navigate)
- helpful support staff
- Has a great 1-click Wordpress installation
- bit pricey
- my site is sometimes slow to load
- their call centre is only open daytime hours, mon-fri, so not much use if you need help in evenings and weekends
Amazon is a near perfect shopping experience. Their range of products is unrivalled and having multiple sellers on the site keeps everything competative and prices down. Their product reviews are also great and there's loads of them unlike sites such as play.com
Ebay is a great site, There's a huge range of items and great bargains available. The only downside is it's pricey to sell products on the site. There's the listing fee, the final valuation fee and the paypal fee. It's ok for small things like dvds, but if you're selling something for £400 they will take around £50 out of your profits. Ouch! It's fair enough that there's a fee, but it shouldn't be so large.
I have used a number of hosting companies, including 123Reg and 1&1 but I feel Tsohost are the best I've used. Key reasons they stand out for me include:
- Great prices and great value
- Really helpful UK based customer service team
- Fast UK based servers
- 1 click Wordpress installation
I've had various problems with 123Reg and 1&1 that have made me want to pull my hair out, but I'm pleased to say I have had nothing but great experiences with Tsohost. Overall I would say they are 5*.
