Movie Collector reviews
Thank You for your patience with this 68 year old man. Thank You for the Professional Way in which you helped me….and Thank You for Putting Up with Me. You are “A Very Fine Young Man”. You have confirmed what I have known for a few years….”CollectorZ Software” and “The CollectorZ Team” are the best on the Planet.
Thank You So Much for Your Help…
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.
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.
I am using this beautiful piece of software some time now and its getting better and better, especially with the latest build making the thumbnails look real great!
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.
In passing I selected to purchase your database as it was the most impressive. You provided a lot of useful details on your very comprehensive website, which is more than I can say for the others I’ve looked at over the past week or so, even though some of them claim to be free! One little factor that helped me decide was the fact that I noted that you do not restrict rating titles to the abstract 1 to 5 star rating system. I’ve never been in favour of it. I’ve always rated my own titles from 0 to 10 as a field entry in my existing Access database for Film and TV titles.
0 = Not yet watched (or in the case of a TV series I haven’t watched enough episodes to make up my mind).
1 = Abysmal (Why did I waste money on this turkey?).
... all the way to ...
10 = Superb!
Anyway, again many, many thanks for your speedy reply and help.
I probably do not use half the features that you have available (I really do have a very old cell phone for emergencies), but for my needs this works. I have 3 databases and I choose to keep them separate, 2 are minuscule compared to my main Database.
Searches seem faster.
I like the carbon template (dark), especially the new feature to switch between front & back covers!
THANK YOU :)
Thanks so much.
Many thanks to you both for your foresight in creating 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!
