What a great product
"Finally!! The software I've been looking for. What a great product. I love the look of the GUI and the info it shows about the movies. I can edit anything I please and just recently figured out the individual
episode controls so that each episode fires right from the screen list.
This product works well with VLC Player. It's so much easier to rip my hundreds of titles to HDD and use this product to manage them.
I created several databases. One for the movies, one for the TV shows, and one for the music dvds. The info that downloads for the TV shows is WOW! I was so addicted to loading the movies in the first few days after purchase I spent 5 hours straight on the first batch...and did nothing but brag about it to friends and family. I have recommended this to all my friends that love their multimedia set-up as much as I do.
I was so impressed I purchased the .mp3 software as well. I consult a few radio stations and it is the perfect solution for data-basing and searching songs that aren't loaded into their existing
automation software and playing from a second tower through the broadcast console during request shows.

"I have been using the Movie Collector for several months now and I am impressed with the software. I have 2,600 plus movies (some are on the wish list). The program does not slow down or hesitate no matter how much information I input.
I only had one issue that Alwin straightened out for me and he was quick to do it. This tells me that your level of customer service is very high. "

You give me what I like
"I really like the new main interface with the list of folders and items in hierarchical order on the left and the items on the right. Much more logical and useful. Thanks for all the hard work.
This would be a good direction for Music, too. (hint, hint). Most of the time, I feel like developers just change stuff for the sake of change and usually make it worse.
As usual, you guys just seem to read my mind and give me what I like. If only Microsoft would do this!"
"Love the new Movie Collectorz software.
The 'folder genre' list is now very good indeed and the look and feel of the whole interface is far superior. I look forward to exploring all the new features in depth just thought I should give you my immediate reaction to all your hard work.

"Thank you for inquiring, but I am so satisfied by your application that I have been working on it for the past day and a half.
I was successful in downloading the program into my Sony Vaio and then I did the same thing with my Apple computer with no trouble.
I was just printing my list of 64 films that I have integrated with no major troubles. It is so easy especially when you are a little bit familiar with such applications.
So congratulations, you have made just another happy customer with me. My next step is to buy a storage system, either mecanical or electrical found on Amazon. but I will do that after New Years...
So thanks again, it is very rare to receive such close attention from the sellers these days; it's refreshing; just keep doing it; it's appreciated."

Handy when I am shopping
"Just want to say I bought your movie and book systems
and could not be happier. So great to have all my movie list
handy when I am shopping. "
Robert Walterman (USA)
"This program, one made by collectors, is the best thing I have ever seen. Wonderful! It sure saved me an immense amount of time and aggravation!
I really can't express enough how much I love your software. A few years ago, I used an older version of Microsoft Access to catalog about a thousand books, and that was such a major project that I soon gave up when I tried to use it to make a DVD catalog
. At that point, I Googled programs for it, and your program appeared to be the best organized
as easiest to use, so I purchased the pro version right away. Best investment I have made in a long time! Wow! Just so easy to use! I had a catalog
of my 333 movies (And growing weekly) in no time at all. You made it a lot of fun to do, and now I don't even have to print it out.
I have a great way now to share the list with my friends and family, and I have the mobile app on my smart phone, too. Now I won't buy a duplicate DVD ever again. I can't think of anything better or easier.
Thank you very, very much!"

List my DVDs
"Great way to list my dvds
Antony Byron (United Kingdom)
All 573 movies
"On Movie Collector, I upgraded to Pro, got the online connection to see my movie list from my cell phone, and got all 573 movies logged in. Working well!
I enjoy friendly people. And good software!"
Mark Riggenbach (USA)
Great list of stats
"I absolutely LOVE Movie Collectorz.
So easy to add and great list of stats. 1,124 movies / TV Series, 82.6% DVDs 17.4% Blu-rays
Colin Hartley (United Kingdom)
A dream come true
"All the work put in over the 14 plus years is a dream come true for me.
I've started loading my DVD list
. It'll take a while with over 600. My wife and I love movies and we've been very selective and I think we have built quite an eclectic library!"
Howard Mills (United Kingdom)
A great item!
"The CLZ Movies HD app for the iPad is a great item!
It makes it simple to show guests a listing of available movies, rather than showing them an Excel spreadsheet or inviting them into my computer room to see the list
on Movie Collector.
Score one for the Collectorz team!"
Marty Troum (USA)
"We thought we had about 4-500 movies. It was impossible to remember what we have and if someone borrowed one, just cross your fingers that they brought it back. After I bought movie collector, with the handy dandy little scanner, I realize there are 1000 so far and a whole unit of dvd's still to go through, not to mention videodiscs, betamax, and vhs.
That little scanner is awesome, and without it I never would have had the patience to compile a full list of movies
, let alone be able to search for actors/directors/genre, etc"
easy to use & simple to follow
First let me say I have been searching for sometime now for a better way to ensure that I don't repurchase DVD's I already own. I have a collection of DVD's and Bluerays of well over 2000 titles so remembering them is getting hard! I found this program while searching for a video store system thinking that was the only way I would be able to keep track of what titles I have and who I have loaned them to friend wise.
The software is a amazing, it's easy to use and simple to follow. I am amazed at how very little time it takes for a newbie to pick it up and run with creating a list. I now have all my movies listed and with the added iPhone app CLZ Movies, I can now ensure that I take my collection list everywhere I go!
The communication from the Collectorz team has been second to none, making me feel like I not only purchased a great functioning software I am part of a greater community. I have no hesitation in recommending this awesome software bundle to anyone, it not only saves you money (from repurchasing titles) it saves you time (taking them back to the store because you already own them!)
Look forward to the next release guys! Keep up the great work!"

It's a Must Have
"I have just purchased and download the iPhone App and it works great!!
I have currently approx 1,250 movies in my collection (with more to add) and having access to the collection via the Clz iPhone app is fantastic!
As a workaround I had been printing my Collection to a pdf list and then loading that on my iPhone via a "files" app, but having the Clz app is the only way to go, it's a must have for any collector!!
On the strength of you comp upgrade I have also just purchased Music Collector Pro. It will be my next project after I get my Movie Collection fully up to-date."
A dream came true
"Collectorz.com is absolutely brilliant.
I have been waiting for this idea for over 3 years. I have over 600 movies and I often share them
with my co-workers. I was tired of writing down the movie titles and trying my best to remember my new purchases along with some older purchases. I kept telling my co-workers that one day I would create an MS Access database and list all my movies
. That was two years ago and at that time it was still incomplete.
Finally a dream came true.
Collectorz create the very software I needed for my crazy hobby.
Collectorz made the process of entering all my movies seamless and quick. Not only can I categorize, print and enter my movies in an expedient manner, my co-workers can now browse my movie library
I have not finished adding my movies, but I must tell you, it has not only been fun using the barcode scanner, but entering the movie titles manually has also been rewarding.
Trust me when I say this software is excellent and well worth the price of convenience.
Keep up the good work...."
A Great Product!
"I downloaded and use the Ipod addition of Movie Collections.
It's great, no more duplicate movies. I take the Ipod to Wal-Mart and I have the complete list of 1,600+ movies
with me. NO more guessing, Do I or Don't I...
Thanks a Great Product."
"I love the iPhone MovieCollector. I find it easier to use and it is more engaging to others browsing my collection
than my old List Pro data base.
I think a lot of the appeal comes from the cover images - it allows browsers to thumb through in a manner similar to the way they thumb through my actual collection of DVDs
The topping on the cake
"I am an organizing
nut; love to organize everything
so I know where the stuff I have is located.
Can't tell you how many of this and that that I have duplicated over the years because I could not find that one item I needed or wanted.?
I have my two grandchildren living with me and all of us love our movies. I have some 3-4 thousand; some on VHS, Laser, DVD and now the start of something really great - Blue Ray.
One of my grandkids will yell, where is Monkey Trouble and off I go to see if I can find that one, even though I have a somewhat-organized alphabet list. Your program gives me the topping on the cake because I can now go a step further and tell them a bit of what the movie is about and even show them a picture of the cover on the movie.
You have done a marvelous job and someone "Up There" must have led me to your website.
As I say, I hope this e-mail gets to you to let you know your hard work over the years will be appreciated by me and I will pass the word to get you some more business - for this product and others that you have available."
"Just a quick note to say how much we like your movie product.
Kids go to the pc now to check what movie they want to watch. I'm going to set up an old pc right by the bigscreen so we can be lazy and see the movie list
from the couch."
I can't wait to see what's next
"I've been using Movie Collector 4 for the last 4 years and I love it (I use it on both my desktop and laptop). From what I've seen, the changes in the new version are excellent.
I just bought an IPod a few months ago, I spent last night playing with the program and also found the box set option to be very useful; I have quite a few collection sets yet I list the movies individually so finding them now is much easier. My dvd collection is borderline insane, and I have been carrying a list with me to ensure no duplicates. This makes keeping and maintaining my inventory and keeping track of loans almost effortless giving me more time to watch movies.
I myself have been programming since 1985 and was so glad somebody else has gone to all the work putting Movie Collector together. I can appreciate what it involves.
Keep up the GREAT work; I can't wait to see what's next !"
A big fan!
"I really love your programs. You can definitely list me as a big fan! I refer everyone I can to you (our IT manager recently signed up after he said he needed to catalog his books
Thanks again for a great program! And thanks for being so great about support also. "
"Wanted to tell you how VERY USEFUL Movie Collector is. I purchased the program a couple of years ago and put all of my movie collection
in it. I had over 700 movies and collectors sets.
My home was burglarized and I would have had trouble providing a list of all the movies I had to the police and insurance company. However, thanks to your program I had a comprehensive list and they will reimburse me for all the movies (Almost $17,000 worth!). Bless you!"
"Your program is excellent and provides many more features, much more efficiently than any of the other five similar programs I had on trial.
You appear to have thought of everything and the feature list is extremely comprehensive without being overloaded."
Just so damn sexy
"Just thought I'd add my name to your list of happy customers. I recently bought your Movie Collector software, and I feel to compelled to let you know just how amazing I think it is.
For years now I've been laboriously cataloguing my DVDs (current count about 580) using Microsoft Access, for insurance purposes if nothing else.
Your software has turned what had become a chore into an obsession! It's just such a comprehensive and powerful tool, and the end result is just so damn sexy! Being able to export to the web with a click of the mouse is just fantastic, and makes the database so much more secure and accessible.
The program is so well designed that I've barely even glanced at the help files - everything is just so easy to work out. How you guys read my mental wishlist I don't know, but please keep up the great work!"
"We have been using the pro version of the movie collector for a few years now and are extremely pleased with how it works.
One of the greatest features is the ability to export the movie list
so that we can put it on our palm pilot to be able to reference all of the movies
that we have when in the stores."
