As a community the site is very active. Most requests will be filled quickly. They also have some tutorials on their forum such as how to play particular encoded movies, about media players....
There were some serious troubles there few weeks ago but they are back online and doing well. Some would say they are not as good as they used to be after that. But I don't see any big difference.
There are many HD trackers out there such as HD-torrents, HDBits, BIT-HDTV, AwesomeHD.... and there were some comparison threads here between scenehd and some trackers . There are advantages as well as disadvantages there when it comes to comparisons. But a main thing about this site is scene releases. Some people are specially looking for particular encoders. In that case this won't be an option.
Overall a good tracker with great contents. Would be cool if you become a member of this tracker. Invites are somewhat rare so you have to convince someone to get an invite. But I'm pretty sure you'll find one because there are awesome members here which who can able to invite you to the site.
Amazingly awesome contents and speeds.
Fair speed of pre-times.
One of the most active BT communities.
The tracker has some useful tutorials and cool features.
Scene releases only. So no internal encoders.
