Comic Collector review “Making Sense of the Mess”

April 23rd, 2014

Great review of our Comic Collector software at the Comic Booked website!

A quote:

“The program kept getting better and better as the year progressed until it took a major leap forward with a newly designed “Colbolt” version in October 2013. This was a MASSIVE improvement over the previous version, and has made this program hands down the industry leader in my eyes. If the fees for use continue to be applied to product improvement like they have this year then it’s money well spent, and I’ll gladly pay for my renewal when it comes around soon.”

Review: “Runs like a dream”

August 6th, 2013

A very nice review of Book and Movie Collector on Sunilification. Here is a quote from it:

“Friends and readers would be aware of my woes of cataloguing books, DVDs and Blu Rays. I don’t own too many, roughly about 1200 books and 500 DVDs, but managing them can be a nightmare. Especially when items are regularly borrowed and returned. It took me a while to remember who hadn’t returned my copy of White Teeth or the original Festen.

For a long time now, I have been seeking a software to catalogue them or a barcode scanner that can scan and update the status of items when they are added or borrowed ( a la a public library). So far, I didn’t find anything that was complete or met all of my needs.

Last month, a friend suggested Collectorz. A visit on to their website and checking out the features of their products convinced me that they had what I was looking for. I have been using it over last couple of months and it runs like a dream. I think for people like me, who collect and manage books, I can’t recommend it enough.”

Game Collector review

January 11th, 2013 already reviewed Movie Collector and now also Game Collector.

“I have been using’s Movie Collector to keep track of my movie library for years. Versatile and quite user-friendly, Movie Collector takes a lot of guesswork out of tracking my Blu-rays and DVDs, and even has a Loan function to keep tabs on movies that people have borrowed. recently sent us their Game Collector program to evaluate. While there are other applications available to keep your videogame library in order, none of them are as complete as Game Collector.”

Why anybody should use movie cataloging software

October 18th, 2012

Mika Malja from reviewed Movie Collector for his own DVD collection.

“Some people may wonder why anybody should use a cataloging software because of course everybody knows the names and everything else of their 5 – 10 or in some cases even 20 movies that they own. And if that’s the amount of movies that you own then you definitely don’t need any cataloging software whatsoever.

But sometimes like in my case I have about 1000 movies it’s not that easy anymore to remember all the titles that you own. So when I’m shopping for more I can’t always be 100% sure if I got that bargain bin treasure find already or not. I believe also that this is the most common reason why people do catalogs of their collection. It also saves you money because you don’t accidentally buy any doubles.”

“Thanks to Game Collector, I’m Organizing My Collection”

June 29th, 2012

Avid gamer and video game collector Brittney of has started her quest to catalog all the games in her woman cave. Her words, not mine :-)
From her blog post.


Ladies and Gentlemen, I…I don’t even know how to begin. I just want to say I’ve appreciated all of your support and and and…okay. I’m being a bit dramatic. The point I’m trying – and failing – to make is that I’M FINALLY COMPILING A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF ALL OF MY VIDEOGAMES. That’s right – that tab labeled “My Collection”, which has just been sitting up there for over a year, will finally serve a purpose.

To undergo this task, I’m going to be utilizing Game Collector, a website/program I SWEAR was made for me. ”

You can follow her progress on her blog, she keeps a list online.

Cool, we were mentioned in the Columbia Daily Tribune!

March 28th, 2012

Quote from the article in the Columbia Daily Tribune:
“Hobbyist databases don’t get much better than the Collector Series from The brainchild of Alwin Hoogerdijk, this Amsterdam-based publisher has been fine-tuning and expanding his line of specialty PIMs for the past 12 years.”

Local computer consultant Scott A. May reviewed Movie Collector for his own movie collection and liked very much what he saw.
“Managing data doesn’t have to be a dreary chore. In fact, it can be a lot of fun, especially if the information you need to organize pertains to something you find fun.”

“Now it’s time to play”

March 1st, 2012

All things games site Digitally reviewed Game Collector.

“’s Game Collector solves one of the (few) downsides to digitally downloadable games; that you end up with a library of games that you don’t have sitting on a shelf. This can at times make it hard to keep track of everything that you own, especially if you’ve got multiple consoles and stuff stored on a range of devices.”

The reviewer sure had fun entering his own personal collection. After he entered his games, he started playing with the data instead of playing with his new PS Vita :-)

“So what happens next? Now it’s time to play with the masses of data that you’ve accured. Games can be filtered in whatever way you like, so if you want to get an easy overview of the order in which you really do like your Final Fantasy games, you can filter out that information.”
