I've gone the last two years, plus once in 1995 when I was young and insane. I'll be staying home, this year.
Regarding the sell-out issue: I ran into the same thing last year, but was able to get in with a VOLUNTEER membership. So if you're planning on going, but can't get a membership, check out the "Volunteer" button on their Website. You have to spend 3 hours of your day doing a goofy task (I did "line enforcement"), but it's not grueling and you get the rest of the day to see the show for FREE.
For you newbs-- I'd strongly recommend taking an extra day and just visiting San Diego. There's a "Trolley (bus) Tour" that lets you get on and off all over the city. It starts in Old Town and runs through downtown/Convention Center, Coronado Island and the Balboa Park museum area. You don't have to catch it in Old Town, though. Jump-on points are all along the route.
Also, during the Con, there are a few free shuttle buses that run from the Convention Center to all of the big hotels. We stayed at a cheesy Days Inn by the airport/harbor, but were able to walk three blocks and get a ride on the Holiday Inn shuttle. We flew in from out-of-state, but for the first time I can recall, we didn't need to rent a car! Used public transportation for all of our needs and it wasn't a hassle.
There's also the "San Diego Trolley"-- a light rail train that takes you right up to the Convention Center. Really helps with the parking nightmare. Find the Trolley stops, park North of the city and take the Trolley in.
I'm also big on PETCO park, if you're a baseball fan. Typically, the Padres aren't in town during the Convention, but if you arrive a day early or stay an extra day, you should be able to catch a game.

2nd year for me and the misses. We missed out on the full passes by one day but were able to get 4 single day passes, which means exclusives every day if they don't sell out right away.
