Re: It's the video quality that stopps me.

I have a 46" SONY 1080p 120Hz HD set and a 7Mbps RR connection. Netflix HD streaming, while it doesn't rival BD, is more than adequate. You must be on DSL.
I am on Comcast 12 megabit tier and Netflix is constantly pausing and drops to "reduced quality" that makes it look like crap. In fact I have let my Netflix account expire because we got it primarily for the streaming and it's just not worth it.
What kind of device were you using to watch? I can't remember the last time I got a pause or reduced quality instance aside from one time I kicked off an un-throttled bit-torrent client while watching something.

I have used both my Tivo-HD (that has it's own problems with aspect ratio on Netflix) and a PC with the same results.
I've tried Netflix on many devices (roku, blueray players, PC, playon, ps3, xbox) and think that Netflix looks best on PS3, especially when it comes to smooth pan/scans. Blockiness/compression artifacts also least noticeable on PS3. 5.1 and subtitles are suppose to come in Oct as well as built in software player (no need for disc).
