Easy to use
"I am an avid movie collector
who has tried several software programs which failed miserably, were not stable failed after I scanned and manually installed well over 500 movies which took hours and hours to put them in. The software was clumsy and painstaking to use. By luck and chance I came upon collectorz which creates an easy to use, beautiful interface with all the cover art and astonishing and useful info about the movies, cast, creation of the movie and a comprehensive insiders look at all the detail you could want.
I just finished a gorgeous project to create an insert with full extension ball bearing drawer slides as a proper place to have complete access to my entire collection. It will hold well over 1000 to1300 DVD and blu ray discs which I will finally be able to see whenever I wish. Since I am retired and disabled with an arthritic spine which makes me use an electric wheelchair to get around.
My movies are very important and having this kind of database is really a godsend. the back and forth interface is brilliant and I have 5 devices to put them on,maybe over kill but so satisfying to just know I have them. If you have a movie collection and simply want to know what they are, you can scan the barcodes, or simply start typing in the name or other info.
I just can't imagine a better designed, well thought out impressive software that has matured over 15 years into something akin to a work of art. Getting to look at all the original cover art ads a beautiful glimpse into what the film makers intended to put on film with the proper flavors of their design."
Keith Robberding (USA)
Cataloging my DVD collection
"Everything seems to be pretty intuitive so far and I've had no problems using it - obviously "hubby" did a good job setting it up. I just retired and I'm (finally!) getting round to that long overdue task of cataloging my DVD collection
so this software has been an absolute godsend.
Many thanks to you both for your foresight in creating it. "
Brian Marchant (United Kingdom)
"Okay, so we can start this message off by agreeing that when it comes to cataloguing software
, you quite easily demolish your competition. In fact I have been on board the Movie Collector bandwagon for longer than most. I bought it long before a scanning app and so on. I still have my sweet USB scanner that looks like it came straight from the 1970s! You have turned Collectorz into an absolute force. It is the catalyst by which all others will forever be judged."
Adam Reichl (USA)
"Purchased your dvd movie collector software
and I LOVE IT!!!!
I live in a small space and had put all of my DVD's in storage books but missed being able to just see a cover and decide on something to watch. Your software lets me see my covers or look for a title and it is perfect! The software was so easy to use and fast. I've got less than 500 movies but they all fit so nice in the books and take so much less space.
Thank you for the great software!"
Teri Stewart (USA)
would truly be lost without it
"I truly do love your software.
I first purchased it several years ago and update every year. While my movie collection
is not as large as many of your customers, I would truly be lost without it.
I also give a list of the titles every year to my insurance agent as I have ny DVD's separately listed on my homeowner's insurance to insure adequate coverage."
Jim Graflund (USA)
Less than two hours
"I would like to add my very positive comments on how simple and effective Movie Collector is. I loaded up over 200 DVD’s in less than two hours. The features are tremendous and the screens are visually impressive."
John Simmonds (USA)
On top of the list
"I own hundreds of movies and I never knew that a program like this ever existed. Now, I can catalogue my vast collections
and manage more effectively. I didn't review other programs but this one was on top of the list and I go with my instinct and I am happy I did."
Terence Jailall (USA)
"I would just like to say how pleased I am with Movie Collector which
is proving invaluable, especially as my DVD collection
approaching 400 titles and growing by the week. I am also beginning to
add some Blu-ray titles, although I only have about 20 at the moment."
Graham Bennett (United Kingdom)
"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."
Bud Chapman (Brunei)
"Can't tell you how many DVD's and CD's that I bought duplicates of (because I didn't remember if I had them) before Collector Movie & Collector Music. Now if you had Collector Recipes for my wife, I wouldn't spend hours looking for a recipe for her. Collectorz.com is the cats meow!"
Larry Nuese (USA)
Organization is the Key
"Organization is the Key and with Collectorz Movie Collector it easy to find the Science Fiction or Fantasy movie that I want in my collection.
Neatly alphabetically sorted and separated between DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
784 movie titles containing 1278 Disks."
Paul Dubey (USA)
1.536 and growing
"Without you help, my collection would be a mess. Thank you.
51 blu-ray, 1.065 dvd, 18 iTunes, 125 laserdisc, 1 umd, 55 video cd, 1 video disc, 166 vudu and
53 other = 1.536 and growing."
Dennis Jankowski II (USA)
"I love it so much, I have bought
your other programs: book, music, comic, game. Please tell whoever
is in charge that these programs are so beautiful, they might as well
be described as an art form. Wonderful in every sense of the word, a
thousand times more than I could ever hope for in such programs.
There are so many things that are so much better in your programs than
your competitors, I couldn't even begin to say how great they are.
The fact that so much info can be downloaded simply by adding an ISBN
is amazing. For my series on DVD and Blu-ray, they are rather HUGE
with information, so it's so wonderful to get all the episodes
downloaded with dates, writers, directors, etc. FOR EACH EPISODE. I
have dozens of other things I glowingly praise to myself each day I
use this program. Thank you again.
I've never written anything like this about any program I've
purchased, but I felt I had to write to you. Thank you again!!! "
Shon Edwards (USA)
Have found a few dubbies
"Oh dear Collectorz.com ... I think we have too many films .... nearly done on the actual cataloguing and I'm on 819 but because we have lots of TV shows one season will show as 1 'film' but in fact in our DVD cases it might take up 8 slots in our sleeves ... so in disc terms we're around 1,200 discs (or maybe more) ... haven't finished organising yet but it's been worth it all !!! Have found a few doubles too that have now been given as pressies to friends !!! How would I cope without your software ?? I guess the answer is 'I wouldn't !'"
Mandy Inglis (United Kingdom)
"I love how easy it is to catalogue my movies
and keep track of what I already have just by typing in the barcode :)"
Karen A. Cook (USA)
"Been adding to my movie database
throughout the day ... on film 402 and sooooooooooo many more to add ... this will take forever !! Am getting rid of all the boxes & storing in a DVD case ... Loving how much more space I have though ...
Am enjoying this de-cluttering :-)"
Mandy Inglis (United Kingdom)
G R E A T !
"I just wanted to let you know what a GREAT program you have with Movie Collectorz.
I have film titles on 16mm, 35mm, VHS, Laser Disc, DVD and now Blu-ray
. I would guess that I have several thousand titles.
I live in the Los Angeles area, and have a number of friends who are in the film industry,
and have bought a couple of them copies of your program.
It is great, however, I have one complaint: I like it so much, that I become a bit obsessive
with it and spend WAY too much time with it, as it is so enjoyable. "
Vince Connor (USA)
Just want to say THANK YOU
"I recently discovered MovieCollector while trying to help a friend with his (obviously) movie collection
...he has a few thousand DVD and Blu-Ray
, and is basically our neighborhood sharing point for any films. But he was having troubles figuring out who had what film, and what he even had (especially with sequels etc) so basically, I went looking for a solution, and found your wonderful software!
5 minutes testing it.....and he bought the pro version with a laser scanner!
A couple weeks later, I was looking at my book collection (rough guess, between my wife and I at least 10k) and realized....I know a company that makes a book collection software.......
10 minutes later...........bought it.
So basically, thank you for making some really great software that has made 2 new customers very happy....and these 2 will definitely recommend your products to others!"
William Ebaugh (Germany)
"Just looked at the new upgrades coming, can't wait to order. Looks like more fun to catalog collection
Carletta Mosby (USA)
Fixed it as spromised within 24 hours
"Had a small problem with movie collectorz, bluray-, dvd icons etc where not displayed anymore...
customer support fixed it as spromised within 24 hours... awesome :)"
Andreas Kilb (Germany)
"Love your software; the best I've tried, for cataloging my collection
As an artist, movie star images rank among my favorite subjects."
Dale Lewis (USA)
So much fun
"I love it! I was about to do a manual inventory of my DVD's
in Excel then it occured to me that there has to be a program out there that does this automatically for me. It is so much fun and easy to document my DVD's.
This may sound funny but the moment I clicked on the first movie I was researching I was in love with the program. I will continue to play around with the software to see it's full potential.
Thank you for having a brain bigger than mine and designing something that would free up a lot of my time."
Evette Murch (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!"
Jim Smedley (USA)
"Scanned in 100 dvd/blu rays
within 20 minutes.
Cue Cat scanner took a little getting used to, but once I got the hang of it - wow, simplicity!!
I had about 5 movies that didn't come up right away. But the tool to scan by title and then pick out the correct version worked like a charm."
Linda Pattison (USA)
It is brilliant
"Just wanted to say I have just started using the movie database
and it is brilliant,
catalogued about 250 dvd's with a bar code scanner in about half an hour."
Perry Panayiotou (United Kingdom)
In about an hour
"Did an entire inventory of DVD's
(Only 300) in about an hour last night with the scanner. Love it!!!!!
I'm still figuring things out, but I sure like this software..."
Goose Gosswiller (USA)
Thank you a 100 times
"Thank you a 100 times - I have been a Mac user for over 10 years and could not find a decent programme to catalogue my music cd or movie collection
- have over 4,000 music cds and 2,000 movies. :-D
Thanks again for creating these programmes."
Margaret Lunel (India)
The best ever
"Hi and greetings from near Sydney Australia!!! I'm a 60 year old grandmother of 6 and I love the software!!!
For over 12 years I have been using an Excel spreadsheet to collate my 1,000+ private movies.
But I got to the stage that sometimes I couldn't remember the title but I could remember the actors. I could not believe how simple it was to tranfer ALL my movies across!! All there is to do is to "update
online" each title & change DVD cover (which is worth it ) and then by using the searh field eg: for an actor and then it pulls up all the movies associated with the actors! YEAH!
The best ever for so little cost!!!"
Ingrid Layton (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)
Your great software
I'm really enjoying adding my movie collection to your great software. I especially love the "Barry" app that allows me to scan them in using my iPod!
I like to do a little programming at times, but never took the time to develop something for myself, and you and your crew have done a great job, it's exactly what I wanted! I have a large DVD / BluRay collection that keeps getting larger, and sometimes it's hard to remember exactly what I have.
Again, thank you!"
Hobert Hampton (USA)
I'm really enjoying using it
"I'm new to your software and decided to buy movies first as my collection of over 3,000 DVD's and Blu-Ray's
was getting a little hard to manage. I've started cataloguing
them all now (will take forever haha) but it's a great programme and I'm really enjoying using it.
Once I'm done with movies I will grab music and books.
Keep up the great work."
Mark Brown (USA)
"Just received the Dec Newsletter and want to say Merry Christmas to you all!
Hope that you all have a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year! So happy that you are all doing well.
Can't tell you enough how wonderful the Movie Collectorz is for my DVDs. I love being able to catalog my dvd's AND be able to keep track of my DVD's when my daughter borrows them!
Rebecca Arsenault (USA)
"Collectorz totally rocks for large and small DVD and Book collections
We have all of the different database softwares and have been using it actively since July 2008. Love Collectors.
The hubby just gave me the Android apps as an early christmas present."
Lori Carroll (USA)
Awesome program guys!
"I just got Doug Benson's new comedy CD that includes a bonus DVD of his short lived TV show on Comedy Central and your movie program found it; even the correct image.
Awesome program guys! "
Chris Lambert (USA)
You guys ROCK!!
"Thank you so very much, to tell you the truth, I did not expect such a quick response and great customer experience. I usually don't do testimonials however you guys ROCK!!
I love my database being on the web so I can bring it up any time and anywhere. I have about 600 DVDs and Blu-rays at home, and your Software gave me the ability to place them in a large binder and stored all the covers instead of running out of space filling the cabinets.
I also use your software as a table of contents to my DVD collection
now and I don't have to worry about buying Blu-Rays of movies
I already owned on DVD. Did that Twice.
Please keep up the great work and thanks again . "
Dale Kelly (USA)
"Today I registered all my DVD's and Blu ray movies
on my Collectorz.com Movie Collector, bought the android app and exported them all to my Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc...

The bee's knees
"If you've got more DVD's than you can remember, then you need this product - plain & simple .
It's the bee's knees of DVD library products
John Fenech (Australia)
"Just download v8 and am loving updating my catalog
The episodes for TV series and the trailers being added. i love it.
It is so worth the upgrade price."
Jay Orlikoff (USA)
Saved me from duplicates
"I've been using your movie collector software for over six years and all I can say is job well done! Without it I would never be able to keep track of my dvd collection
and your IPod application has saved me from making duplicate purchases on many occasions. Keep up the good work!"
Well thought out product
"I am very happy with the Movie Collector software and am excited about the improvements you've made over the last several years.
is just over 1,100 titles and we were able to catalog the entire collection in just one weekend with very few challenges. Thank you for an excellent, easy to use, well thought out product!"
The service is great
"I have been a movie collector for nearly 25 years. It was very difficult to maintain my large collection of DVD's
and Bluray disks
. I was using Excel to do the job, but it just wasn't working for me. I found the Collectorz web site and used the trial software for a day or two and I was hooked. I
purchased the Pro Edition and have never looked back. I was able to scan all of DVD's and Bluray's within hours using my Honeywell barcode scanner. I am impressed. The software is unbelievable. The service is great and so are the owners!!!"
"I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for your great software.
I purchased your Movie Collector Software (for MAC) and a cuecat scanner. I plugged it into my MAC, and was up and ready to go in just a few minutes.
In less than 3 hours of work I had all my 200 DVD's cataloged
. My older program which did not support the scanner feature has been scrapped, and this is now my choice for doing this. I am anxiously awaiting your Comic Collector for MAC and will purchase it as soon as it comes out.
Thanks for the good work and superb program.
P.S. I have also purchased the Iphone App which will allow me to make sure I don't have a DVD next time I go Shopping. Great Tool."
"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"
Best money I ever spent
"I have the OPN-2001. I got it the day I ordered my software 2 years ago.
I got my 500+ DVD collection
entered in about 2 hours and the portion of my book collection that had bar codes entered in about an hour.
Best money I ever spent.
I was able to scan everything without having to bring each item back to my desk. I highly recommend it to anyone with a large collection."
Off the charts!
"Just wanted you guys to know that I received my Scanner Package along with Movie Collectorz Pro Version Disc Monday, 9 Aug 2010 and I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the two products work together.
I had my entire library of DVD's organized in the software in a matter of 45 mins or so!
The software is great and the scanner is outstanding! On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate your products a 20!!! (off the charts!)
Keep up the good work!"
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!"
Haydn Pollard (Australia)
"Been using collectorz for about 4 years now on both PC and MAC. And now on iPhone!
Nothing comes close when cataloging my 2,500+ movies
. iPhone version is fantastic."
Quick and Easy
"I have been using Movie Collector for many years now and I have to say that it is quick, easy, and very efficient and allows me the chance to get to my DVD collection
