"Long time fan. I've spent the better part of a month cataloguing my entire movie collection and digitally converting the media to my pc (all legit) my wife and I love how easy it is to just look up a movie watch the trailer and then launch the movie from the PC."
Anth Russell (USA)
Awesome piece of software
"Just wanted to drop you a line and say what an awesome piece of
software you guys have here. I played around with the trial for quite
awhile before purchasing and I'm still impressed with what I can do.
I've used it to catalog my entire dvd collection and I'm also using it
as a front end for my HTPC. It's also being used to catalog and launch
my game collection. It has replaced 3 separate programs for me. And
you guys surprised me on the speed that my movie requests get added to
the core. Usually just a few hours. I plan on upgrading to the PRO
version very soon.
Thanks for a wonderful experience."
Matt Hoffman (USA)
"I've used the PC application and this app (on an old iphone first before moving to android) for quite a while and absolutely love it, and the CLZ Barry app has made cataloging my collection a breeze. Keep up the awesome work!"
Allen Smolenaars (Canada)
Awed at the setup
"Love all your work. You really have helped me add value to my
collection with such an awesome catalog tool interface. Friends come
over and are awed at the setup."
"I recently had the great pleasure of bumping in to your software
product and I must say I am in awe of the great features you have put
in to the product. In a word, AWESOME! Hands down, your fully
integrated ability to catalog and then view the videos all in the same
user interface sets your application apart from all others."
Robert Ginn (USA)
Absolutely the best!
"The iPhone and iPad apps are somewhat limited in features compared to the version for Mac. The version for Mac computer/laptop is a great software for your movie library
. I used to use Microsoft Word for making my movie list. Needless to say, I was so happy when I found this program for my Mac. It's super easy to use and adding movies is a snap. They are constantly making improvements to the program so if there is something about it you don't like right now submit your suggestion and they will work on improving it.
I also have the iPad and iphone versions of this program it's very handy in the event I'm not at home or have access to my laptop when I need to see if I have a movie in my library. I would recommend this program to anybody who has a large movie library that they need to catalog
Happy happy joy joy feelings! Thanks to Alwin and the CLZ team."
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)
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)
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)
"Just looked at the new upgrades coming, can't wait to order. Looks like more fun to catalog collection
Carletta Mosby (USA)
"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)
"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)
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)
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)
"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)
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!"
"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."
Does What It Says
"WOW simple little program, easy to use, does what it says, and made my cataloging
so much easier.
Thanks. I'm beyond happy with my choice of Movie DB software
"I am using the Movie, Music and Book Collector softwares and have all three on my IPod Touch.
These are great software that help me to catalog what's in each of my library
and I can see at a glance on my Ipod Touch what I have already so I do not duplicate it.
over 1,275 movies was a breeze with the Opticon scanner."
I Really Enjoy It
"I have had this program for about ten years now. I really enjoy it.
It makes cataloging
my large movie collection
easy. Thanks guys."
It is a godsend
"This is the greatest movie cataloging software
I have used. It is a godsend.
I have close to 400 movies and I can keep track of all of them now.
Our own Blockbuster store
"I was dreading cataloging my DVD movie collection
and broke out into a cold sweat even thinking about it. I'm delighted that I found Movie Collector and I had my 418 movies in the database
in about 2 hours!
It's an incredibly simple and fast program and I can't remember the last time I fell so in love with a piece of software!
There are so many movies my husband and I haven't seen and it's like we have our own Blockbuster store in our house!
WOW, WOW, WOW!"
"This is not a problem message.
I just wanted to say that, I have purchased the Pro Movie Edition and have an Opticon 2001 scanner.
In the last three days, since installing and cataloging
, over 400 DVDs have been cataloged
. It has been very easy to use.
Thanks for Great database
Robert M. Lampson Sr.
"I have entered almost half of my movie collection
(1.500+) and wonder what I did before learning about your program.
The spread sheet I created to catalog my collection has long since been archived, but after using Movie Collector and finding 2 duplicate movie entries that were in my spreadsheet I'm now ready to delete it. :-)
Thank you for a fantastic program. Back to entering more movies from my collection; I'm so glad I took a weeks holiday."
Highly recommend it to anyone
"After using this program and finishing off inputting all the movie data
, using the CueCat, which finally got working, I think the program would have been more than worth the total amount that I ended up paying (which you have refunded to me, true to your word).
I'd have been willing to pay $100 for this program if I'd realized just how extensive and amazing it truly is. I can keep track of the movies I lend out, never buy another duplicate (I found 6 duplicate DVD's), input new DVD's or Blu-Rays as I buy them; it's just a great program and I'd highly, highly recommend it to anyone.
Next, I'm going to start cataloging my books. I can just take the CueCat upstairs, plug it into my computer, run Book Collector and start scanning my books from my library. I'm very excited about it."
"I am writing in connection with my recent order for your movie collector
software, and laser barcode scanner. Congratulations-----they are both brilliant!
They make cataloging my DVDs so quick, and easy, it is unbelievable. Incidentally, I have been accused of being lazy for using a scanner to catalogue my DVD collection, but I think I am having the last laugh. It makes the process an absolute breeze!"
I am absolutely THRILLED
"I did download the trial version, and I am absolutely THRILLED with what I can do with this exceptional and high quality product. It is EVERYTHING I have been looking for, and MORE! I finally have a professional database to catalogue
my dvd collection
Thank you! I will absolutely be purchasing Movie Collector Pro this weekend!"
Has made Life so much easier
"I am writing to express my Gratitude for the Movie Collectorz Software. Not only is there a user friendly platform, it has Superior Functionality with a Professional & Conscientious Support Team that other companies only wish they could achieve!
Several Years ago after experiencing another program and attempting to build my own data base, both of which were less than desirable, I stumbled across the Collectorz website and purchased the program. While time and events did not permit a full time commitment to “data entry” on my part, I was still impressed with the program.
With a Collection (bordering on obsessive and still growing) of approximately 3,000 each VHS and DVD, I knew this to be exactly what I needed to organize my movie collection and be able to offer viable proof to the Insurance Company. Finally, this past year I upgraded my computer and took advantage of upgrading to Movie Collector 5 and must say I AM REALLY IMPRESSED with the progression of the Program, the Team work and the Community which supports it all!!
The automatic down load for as much information as possible, the flexible ability to personalize data fields, searches, print outs and numerous other features far exceeds any expectations I may have had. With my ever growing collection, and still being somewhat restricted by time and events, I make as many entries as possible when possible. In Striving for perfection and consistency of Data on my part has proved to make this a slow but Beneficial process that will be a forever work in progress.
Overall the Movie Collectorz Software has made Life so much easier and the Dream of having a Full Catalog and Accountability will soon be a Reality.
You are My Hero!! You can never be Praised or Thanked enough for all that you do!! Please keep up the great work and I look forward to what the future may bring."
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."
Beyond my wildest dreams
"I find it to be the best
that can be purchase/obtained, along with the other programs that are offered by Collectorz.com. Not only do the programs function beyond my wildest dreams, but the support offered is comparable to none.
I do not know of any other languages, but I can truthfully say that there are no words in the English language that describe my satisfaction with not only movie collector, but the other programs that I have purchased from Collectorz.com. I am now waiting and saving up my money from my disability checks so that I might purchase a scanner to assist me in my cataloging."
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."
Extremely user friendly
"I searched the internet for months trying to find a catalog program for my movies
. At that time I had 1650 VHS tapes and it was impossible to keep up with them without some sort of catalog
. When I found Collectorz.com my search ended.
The program was so extremely user friendly I had all 1,650 movies cataloged in less than 2 days. One of my favorite features is the loan management. I can't tell you how many times I have loaned movies out and never gotten them back because I had no idea who I loaned it to.
I don't have the need for any of the other collectorz.com products but I assure you, if I ever do, I know exactly where to look. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my program. I recommend it to everyone I know."
Eeasy to use
"What an awesome software program! I have been searching for a software package to catalog my DVD
and music collection
and have tried several, but none can compare to Collectorz.com's software. It is fast, easy to use, the internet data downloaded, including the covers (front & back!), is thorough, and the functionality is great. The one piece I especially like is the personal tab where I can create my own drop downs and lists for my movies
I group my movies by actor, or Academy Award winners, and this page allows me to create those kind of categories. The one thing I would like to see is an Academy Award information tab. What nominations and awards did the movie recieve? I am inputting that data on the personal tab and that works for me. Other than that, I can't say enough good things about the software.
I can't say enough good things about the Flic scanner as well. My collection of movies and music is HUGE, and I did not want to have to add them manually. The Flic scanner solved that.
The problem I was having was on movie night with friends. They would look through all my DVD's for 30-40 minutes just to find the one they wanted to see. With the software, they can now enter criteria to find something to watch and it takes less than FIVE minutes for them to decide. Last night, my friends wanted a comedy with Tom Hanks that was fairly new, less than five years old. In a matter of about one minute, they had a movie picked out.
Thanks again for helping me to get organized and making movie night more enjoyable at my home."
The very best
"I am an old/new member who thinks your software is the very best cataloging product
A DREAM COME TRUE!
"Thank you for having the best software and device (scanner) which is something I have looked for a very long time.
I was creating my own catalog of DVD movies, by typing the info into a word processor, so I would know what was in my collection. It was constant trouble updating, and having a movie's description moving down the page and into another description.
Yesterday I received my scanner from you and spent the rest of the night scanning into your program! IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE! Thank you for your creativity and knowing what people really want, and especially what I needed. Whoever devised the process and the program, thank you!"
Very user friendly
"The best program I have seen, I use it to catalog my dvd collection
which numbers in excess of 1,700 movies.
I find it very user friendly and would recommend it to any collector."
What I was looking for and more
"I've used the Movie Collector program for just a few days now and wanted you to know... the more I use it the more I love it! It's going to take me awhile to catalog my 300+ dvds
but when finished I will have a dynamic, professional data base
to be proud of.
Thank you for your great product. It is just what I was looking for and more."
"Just wanted to thank your for such a great product. I am constantly amazed at the depth of useful functions in Movie Collector. I love this product!
I recently removed all of my DVD's from the original packaging and put them in sleeved albums to save space. I numbered each sleeve and with your software, was able to index and print a catalogue of my collection of 700+ DVD's. My family can now browse through the catalogue, pick a title and go directly to the disc.
The entire collectorz team desirves a big pat on the back!"
I was impressed
"I am currently playing with the trial version, and you have done a great job. We have over 300 movies and thus far I have created an Access DB to catalogue them
. Frankly what a waste of time, so when a friend told me to check out your site is was impressed and have passed on the site a a number of others."
Your product is the best
"Just wanted to say thanks for a great product. I have been using Movie Collector with the Flic barcode reader for about a week. I now have my collection completed with 589 entries
! It was very easy to get everything set up and enter all the movies into the database
. More importantly, your product is the best I have found at getting the information OUT.
The filtering and use of thumbnails is excellent! Also, I have printed out my collection using a number of filters. I have a wonderfully grouped catalog that I can show to my guests to help them select a movie from my collection.
Thanks and keep up the great work! I can't wait to see what you come out with next!"
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!"
I'd catalog my collections all day long!
"I subscribed to both Movie and Music Collector a few years ago and loved it then, but got sidetracked with other things. Now that I'm back (updated and also subscribed to Book Collector), I love your programs more than ever! If I had more time, I'd catalog my collections
all day long!
Thanks for your great products. Your prices are incredibly fair, and your software is quite useful to me, an avid collector. Please keep up the good work!"
Your software made this easy
"Great software! To catalog them forever
. I work in the I.T. field and am very proficient in Microsoft Access. I was going to build my own database, however, I knew I would never find the time to input all of the dvd info.
Your software made this easy. In fact, I was able to add them all to my catalog
in just a few hours.
You guys Rock!
"Your Movie Collector Software is, without a doubt, the easiest program to use. I have spent years searching for a decent data base program
, without luck. My wife bought this for me as a gift and I spent all weekend cataloging my collection of 238 movies
and Television shows.
You guys Rock!"
What a timesaver
"Congratulations on a super product! I have been cataloging my movies
using Microsoft Access, logging in the actors and information. It was very time consuming.
I like Movie Collector's ability to go online and retrieve the information about each movie - what a timesaver! It even gives the front and back cover pictures.
I don't think I could have ever done that in Access. Looking forward to years of service from this product!"
