Everyone has their own budgets and their own level of interest in tv/movies (and in the types of tv/movies on Netflix streaming) and that will determine whether one thinks the disc + streaming combo is worth it or not at the new price.
For me, with the amount of movies I watch a month and the current streaming content not being all that aligned with the types of things I watch, it's not worth it. I'll go to disc only, and maybe switch to blockbuster to avoid the 28 day delays etc. if the turn around time is the same and the selection of discs ok for my interests.
For others who stream a ton, and don't watch many discs, they can go streaming only. For those who use both a ton, it's still a good deal and and most will keep it.
It's really as simple as that. No sense arguing over it, and I regret wasting time contributing to the argument earlier. It really doesn't matter the reasons for the increase etc. All that matters is whether you think any of the new plans are personally a good value based on how much you use the service, your budget etc.
