To be honest guys this is the BEST PACKAGE SOFTWARE out there, I spent months typing all my Films in a Excel format with Formulas advising me what was lent out to friends and family and the different kind of films such as Action/Comedy/Drama UNTIL I CAME across CLZ just made my life 1,000 times easy. — Leo Phoenix (USA) on Movie Collector

Great job
I'm using Movie Collectorz and Music Collectorz for many years. Last year I added the Android add-on for both and they didn't disapoint me. Yes, i'm totally satisfied about the features of my collectorz programs.
Maybe there are beter programs and apps, I can't imagine but it could be. The main reason that i still using the Collectorz software is there incredible support. Very fast response and always a usable answer.
Great job guys. Keep the good working up! — Peter Lammersma (Netherlands) on Movie Collector

Above and beyond
I would like to thank you and the rest of your staff. You guys have gone above and beyond.

Bravo-Zulu....military talk to you guys. — Daniel Nazario (USA) on Movie Collector

The look is great. I chose the Metro template.
The feature I like most is the link between actor/director to IMDB. This whole update is awesome. — Martin Schlissel (USA) on Movie Collector

Very good job
Dear collectorz.com-team!
Many thanks for the new license key of the new version of Movie Collector.
After a first start I like it very, very much especially the new program appearance (icons etc.) is much more professional and appropriate for the Movie Collector. Fantastic!
I use version 7 of the Book Collector (all of the icons look very old-fashioned :-( )and hope a new version will be as great as the new Movie Collector.

The new page design is very fantastic, too, and the page text regarding image background is now much more readable and looks clean and modern.
You have done a very good job!!!

Now I look forward to seeing more of Movie Collector after I finished this email. — Olaf Oliver Riemer (Germany) on Movie Collector

Unicode support
First of all, thank you very much for the new release of your Movie Collector!
It's really gorgeous, especially the unicode support (works perfectly). — Paul Friesen (Germany) on Movie Collector

Best one ever
Well you outdid yourselves on this upgrade, best one ever. It is so clean & simple.
The "glass" background is a real nice touch. The transparent background in the details section is super cool.
Hopefully it will not take too long to master all the new features............... Thanks — Dave Conger (USA) on Movie Collector
December 13, 2012
Efficient and professional
You guys are the best! For you to have a program to allow recent upgraders to move to the latest edition is amazing, but for you to tell me about it without my having to ask is outstanding customer service.

I have always valued your services for my movies and CDs and now I can do so with complete confidence that I will be taken care of. This is especially great because I think my initial emails were confusing and somewhat angry, but you have always been efficient and professional.

Thank you again. — Ken Russell (USA) on Movie Collector

December 12, 2012
Very good experience
When a collection reaches more than 2,000 entries only you dear programers can help.
A very good experience along the several updates. Congratulations to you. — Kalliope Pappamikail (Portugal) on Movie Collector
December 12, 2012
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! — eMusicMan (USA) on Movie Collector
December 11, 2012
Keeps getting better
The best collection software keeps getting better.
The new features go beyond the typical new release fluff changes; they represent real advancements to the look and feel of the program as well as improvements to the interface and control of the data.
I could not manage my collection of over 5,000 titles without it. — Douglas MacLean (USA) on Movie Collector
December 11, 2012
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) on Movie Collector

December 11, 2012
Just got MC V9. Very cool! Good job to all of you! I look forward to discovering new stuff I can really use.
The new interface is very nice. I haven't gotten into the "extras" yet, but what I can see on start-up is excellent! — Ernest Edward Putt Jr. (USA) on Movie Collector
December 11, 2012
Far superior
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. — Alan Gardner (USA) on Movie Collector
December 10, 2012

This is GREAT!
I received my bar-code scanner Thursday and spent most of yesterday using it to add DVDs and Blue-ray movies to my library. This is GREAT!
I will recommend your program software and scanner to all my friends and family.
Thanks again. — William DeHart (Germany) on Movie Collector

More fun
Just looked at the new upgrades coming, can't wait to order. Looks like more fun to catalog collection! — Carletta Mosby (USA) on Movie Collector
December 06, 2012
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. — Richard Theriault (USA) on Movie Collector

Best software I ever owned
I absolutely LOVE the Movies products. By far, the best piece of software I have ever owned. 850 movies now at my fingertips - and I can finally provide the catalog to family members, most of which love to come by and borrow them. — Kevin Kelly (USA) on Movie Collector

One of the best support teams
Thank you for coming back to me so quickly and thank you for the extra discount. I am very grateful to receive this.

It's great to see that you are taking care of your existing customers as well as potential new customers.

I've got to say that you have one of the best support teams out there and look forward to using your products for many years to come.

I have taken advantage of the offer that you have given me and have now upgraded to pro. So thank you again for that. — Gary Casserley (United Kingdom) on Movie Collector

Great customer serivce
I wish to thank Chris Davidson for a great job attending to my problem updating the Movie Collector app. Over 3 days, Chris patiently took me step-by-step on different ways to solve the problem. If one idea did not work, he'd come up with another. This went on until I managed to update successfully.

Great customer service. Many thanks Chris! — Noy Dy-Liacco (Philippines) on Movie Collector

Thank you
Collectorz World

I just wanted to send you an email to say "thank you". I just received your reply to my problem this morning and I can say I have never had a problem resolved so fast as this was. Thank you again for your fast response and not only did you resolved my original problem but I never knew about the right click until I received answer with the additional info on the right click on the MAC OS X and it fixed that problem also.

It sure is great to have someone who knows what they are doing.
Great program & service! — Bob Crutchfield (USA) on Movie Collector

October 10, 2012
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) on Movie Collector

October 10, 2012
In a word, FANTASTIC!
I can hardly wait for the scanner to arrive. So far, the customer service from your company is great. I appreciate the informative emails.
I have practiced adding some things to my database without the scanner and have been exploring the other characteristics of your program.
In a word, FANTASTIC! I have more than 4,000 movies in my collection and a large number of books (not as many) as well.

Thanks a lot for this program! — John Bernhardt (USA) on Movie Collector

August 27, 2012
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) on Movie Collector

Love it
Just wanted to pop in and say that i have been using your movie and book software for a while and still love it. I would love to be able to upgrade to the newest versions, but due to health issues, I cant afford even the reasonable charge to upgrade my programs.
Which the versions I have is still excellent. Please keep up the terrific work you all do. — Terre Teel (USA) on Movie Collector

Mike Kohler
I currently have 2,700 DVDs I just added to your software and we love it.
We've been collecting DVDs since 2000 and haven't stopped. I built my own software to inventory them using a scanner but got too busy to continue development so I was excited to see that you've taken your software to that next step.
Barcode for Barry is awesome. I was able to scan all our movies in 2 days. We've bought the whole suite and are very happy with results so far... — Mike Kohler (USA) on Movie Collector

Wow, simplicity!!
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) on Movie Collector

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) on Movie Collector
February 29, 2012

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) on Movie Collector
February 06, 2012
Super impressed
I am super impressed with it. The display and versatility of the program to handle the inputed information is terrific. It's offering way more than I expected...and the trailer previews are fantastic.

Your great software
Thanks, Alwin!

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) on Movie Collector

January 26, 2012
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) on Movie Collector
January 17, 2012
1,795 numbered and in order

I tell everyone that has lots of movies to get this program! — Melissa Armington (USA) on Movie Collector
