Beautiful user interface
"I've been using Movie Collector for a number of years with 1,140
movies in the database. Because of the beautiful user interface the
first thing I do after entering a movie in the database is to
"recycle" the DVD case and file the disc in my numerous nylon "CD
cases" all cataloged by genre using Movie Collector. This way I have
over 1,100 movies that only occupy a couple of shelves on the
bookcase. (Plus my whole collection is portable.)
I have enjoyed using your excellent product and use it often on my
desktop or sitting on my couch with my home theatre PC and 55 inch
display. I often use my tablet (Android) and the Movie Collector app
to gather information on the movie I'm watching, update notes, data
and to put other movies on the "wish list".
Having just received an email from Alwin regarding the latest version
I of course upgraded - the "cards" display feature is another welcome
Again, thanks very much. It isn't often that you find software that is
easy to use, reliable and above all so functional due to it's

"I just want to complement you with the ease of moving Movie Collector
(and Music Collector) from my older computer to my brand new Core i-7
I transferred the files from the old computer to the new computer via
my home network as both computers are wired via ethernet. It could not have been easier. No copying files from the old to a USB or portable hard drive.
Install worked flawlessly except for cover pictures but the
maintenance tool fixed all issues.
Congratulations for making the process so easy."

Additions and upgrades
"You guys are doing great and continue to impress me with your additions and upgrades. The orphan file tool really help me a lot, the first run of the tool and I cleaned up over 6000 orphaned files. Thank you very much."

The best of the best
"Your team and software is by far the best that I have come across. I
don't leave many reviews for anything but felt compelled to say
something. I have been a long time user of Movie Collectors and I
have to say it's amazing. I am in the software every day. I know
this is a powerful tool and I haven't even touched the tip of the full
potential this software can do. I use movie collectors as a media
server database as well. I absolutely love the feature of linking the
file location of my movies. I don't even have to bother looking into
a media server. I search for the movie I want click play, and cast it
to my smart tv and bam, I'm watching it. Please keep up the great
work. If I ever get to the Netherlands I will be sure to drop by if
permitted. Thank you again for all that you have done. This is one

New Update File Links "wizard"
"I just used this feature, I found it just searching the menu for any
way not to have to go through 15,000 movies/seasons in 2 db files one
at a time. I still had not finished that from building a new computer
years ago and now I built a new one again. The problem was always the
path change for the covers and this time I was really dreading it.
But I happened upon the New Update File Links "wizard" and finished it in
both DBs in under 15 minutes combined. I have a 1TB SSD for c drive in
this one (really FAST). I would not have ever finished the manual
update of cover locations.
Another very useful feature."
Kenneth Stinnett (USA)
"This is such a fantastic program that I will be using it for the rest
of my life. To my knowledge there is not other program that can
compare to your program. All I have to do is import my text file
listing my movie titles and you system does the rest for me. All I
have to do is point and click and presto, all the information for the
movie is instantly added to my database. Simply fantastic program."
Larry E Weidner (USA)
"Awesome application. Movie Collector. I have around 4,000 films on Dvd or Digital Files. Love using the Cloud to allow friends to view and ask for loans."

You guys have the best
"Just a note to say you guys have the best manual / troubleshooting / help files I have ever seen.
After having to use the manual a few times over the years, there has always been a hold my hand and walk me through solution."
S. Gavin (USA)
"Love your software, been using Movie collector for years. Just started linking my movie files in the database
Jason Heisch (USA)
"I wanted to let you know how happy I am to finally see the scan and
add feature. I have been a customer since version 5 and had used your
software nearly everyday until one of my sticks of RAM decided to
corrupt my movie collector database
. I had stopped using your software
for a few months as at the time I had roughly 650 digital copies of my
movies and I really did not want to manually add them all again.
Now I have over 700 and decided to check out what you have done with
the software. To my surprise, version 7 introduced the scan and
add feature, this feature has saved me countless hours of adding
movies to my database. I added all 713 movies in a matter of a couple
hours rather than days or weeks. The thing that took me the longest
this time was just making sure the search grabbed the correct movie
and even that was quick and painless.
Another thing I would like to add is being a previous customer, this
is the first time I purchased the pro version and I can say that I
will not be going back to the standard version as the integration with
Windows Media Center is beautiful. I use a Media PC on my home theater
system and have actually never used Windows Media Center, though now
that I have seen first hand how well it can work when there is data
for each movie I will now be using it on a regular basis.
Thank you so much for adding the scan and add feature, I can open up
movie collector again and have all the movie covers and details and
now I don't have to scroll through a boring folder with all my movie
files. My friends also appreciate that there are details for each
movie again, it is quite hard to pick something to watch when you just
have a folder filled with over 700 movies and no details on them.
Practicle and Easy
"Running the movie software now for about 2 years and I can say like everybody here that it is practicle and easy. I even started a file of all the movies I've seen and on paper I counted already over 300 movies (series + episodes excluded).
When somebody asks me if I know a database-program for catalogin movies, books, music or comics, I know what to recomend.
COLLECTORZ.COM all the way."
The Best Thing
"The best thing Movie Collector did for me was free up space. By getting rid of the jewel boxes and using the index field to locate the DVD I want in a hanging file folder, I have my entire 600 movie collection
stored in 4 drawers instead of occupying all the space on 4 walls."
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."
Your software is the best
"I have just received the preview email to say v6 of Movie Collector is available and without even downloading a trial first I have upgraded to v6 with my 50% off.
I am a long time registered user v3 of your software and believe in the quality of your product so much there was no need to try it first. I know it's a big leap of faith but your software is the best. Anyway It's 2.45am here in Sydney and I just needed to let you know. Keep up the great work Team!
ps. Just to add I downloaded v6 and added 500+ dvd v5 file to v6 format and it's working great, now I am going to get some sleep :)"

Easy to use
"A few weeks ago, I bought another DVD-Movie catalogue program
and after entering in the information for about 50 movies, I wondered what the advantage of the program was, when I could create a data base
in either Word, Excel or Access, and do the same thing because nothing was automatic and I had to enter all the information in myself.
I then wrote a friend asking if they knew of a good program for keeping track of my DVD Movies, and they directed me to your site and I d/loaded Movie Colllector. I entered in a couple of titles and was amazed as to the ease of use, and the thoroughness of the Movie information that was included automatically. It even imported the information from the other program. I bought your program immediately.
I buy the DVD Movies and make copies so I can watch the copies and keep the originals in pristine condition. I store the DVD's in several locations. Those I loved and I want to watch over and over. Those I'd like to see again sometime. Those I have not seen, and those I would not want to watch again, but I'm too cheap to throw them out. Your program makes it so easy to keep track of the movies and their locations. What a gem of a program you and your team have created. It is also great to have help files that covers everything and you don't have to guess what is being said. But best of all I like to install a program and just start using it without jumping through hoops.
Your program is intuitive and easy to use with a shallow learning curve. Thank you for this, and for keeping your program so affordable."
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!"
