Are you lazy if you add movies to your Netflix Instant list when you own the DVD?

I do this all the time. I'd have to get off the couch to get the DVD, then open it, then put it in the 360, then take it out again and put it back later.

Friends are always like "don't you own this on DVD?" and I'm all like "whatever, conformist".

But seriously, I find myself doing this all the time. I can't be the only person this lazy.

I don't even get to the point of adding it to my instant list, I just stare at a blank screen.

Is this Cheapy's secret account? Because that totally sounds like something he'd do.

Definitely lazy. I stick with the DVDs/Blu rays. Look better (unless the stream is in HD and I only own the DVD) and no worry about buffering etc.

I get roughly/pretty much DVD quality from the streams. I don't have buffer issues either and I run off of wireless. To the OP, though, occasionally. I reason it to channel surfing and finding a movie you love and have seen a 100 times, but still stay to watch. Sometimes I'm just not sure where I put the DVD.

I usually don't have buffer issues (have 12 MBPS internet) and the picture quality is usually very good as well. But every once in a while I have issues where I only get 1 or 2 bars even though my internet speed is fine when I check it when having problems.

Don't get me wrong, I love the instant watch. But I'd rather watch the disc if I have it. Problem free, not putting more wear and tear on the 360, and much quiter since my 360's fan is pretty damn loud.

If your 360 is your only DVD player, I definitely understand. The 360 drive is pretty loud. If you're lazy, than so am I because I would do the same thing.
