This Lovefilm affiliate ceased function as an independent site by early 2007; this review is kept as is for historical interest only.
Pearl & Dean (of cinema advertisement fame) launched their DVD rental website in spring 2006, powered by the large Lovefilm company. Other than a dark blue background with pink letters and the Pearl & Dean logo at the top, it's a straight clone of Lovefilm. We wish we could offer a more substantive review, but there little other than the colors and header to set it apart.
The similarity in system begs the question--why go with the Pearl & Dean middleman at all, why not stick with the specialists at Lovefilm?
Prices: Pearl & Dean offer a 30-day free trial. You won't be able eligible for another free trial if you've already had one with any Lovefilm "powered-by" site. Their subscriptions are straight industry standard ; 1 disc unlimited monthly rental for £9.99, two-discs for £12.99, and three discs for £15.99.
Like other Lovefilm affiliates, they also offer higher tariffs which include console game rentals, though only for PS2 and PSP: unlimited monthly rental for one disc or game for £12.99, two-discs/games for £16.99, and three discs/games for £19.99. However, there are many other (cheaper) options for game rentals out there; if interested see our sister site at Games-Rental-Guide.co.uk.
