Reviews from customers
Can't tell you how many of this and that that I have duplicated over the years because I could not find that one item I needed or wanted.?
I have my two grandchildren living with me and all of us love our movies. I have some 3-4 thousand; some on VHS, Laser, DVD and now the start of something really great - Blue Ray.
One of my grandkids will yell, where is Monkey Trouble and off I go to see if I can find that one, even though I have a somewhat-organized alphabet list. Your program gives me the topping on the cake because I can now go a step further and tell them a bit of what the movie is about and even show them a picture of the cover on the movie.
You have done a marvelous job and someone "Up There" must have led me to your website.
As I say, I hope this e-mail gets to you to let you know your hard work over the years will be appreciated by me and I will pass the word to get you some more business - for this product and others that you have available.
I already own DVD Profiler 3 but it does NOT allow me to add movies by title and it is bulky and very limited compared to your program. I added an image of a movie I have and that was so cool. This program truly rocks!
I am a clinical chemist and I know quality software when I see it. Yes, those were the days when I grew up on DBase, R:Base, FoxPro, Delphi and Access. Whatever your api is written in says wow and screams GREAT CODING AND AWESOME INTERFACE....
PLEASE DON'T DO AWAY WITH ADDING THE TITLE MANUALLY!!! MANU USERS LIKE MYSELF NEED THAT FOR SPECIALTY CULT-B FILMS!
THANK YOU AGAIN X 100,000 TO THE THIRD DUDE! order on its way!!!
I'm telling everyone I know about your product---I just wish I knew more people that collected movies like I do so I could spread the word about your product even more.
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.
Here it is!
You folks have a terrific product (and for someone who has about 2,000 VHS and DVD movies, it's a god-send!) AND your service is exceptional - unbelievable in a world that sometimes seems to forget about THAT part of a business!
Happy Holidays! Mine will be better, thanks to you folks as I have some time off - work for a school district - and was hoping to get my BIG movie and music collections under control ... and now I can!
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 :)
Great work to everyone, and I look forward to many years of collecting. Right now I am at 687 DVD's with another 52 BD.
IKEA is my friend when it comes to storage racks.
If you ever need a testimonial for your BEST BUSINESS PRACTICES, don't hesitate to quote me.
I look forward to using your system for my movies.
Anyway... THANKS AGAIN FOR GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE
I started originally to build a database using Microsoft Access, but got depressed in having to start again with a new Database each time I thought of something new that I wanted to add. I then did a quick Google search and found Collectorz.com.
Although I hate spending money on software (especially if I can write something myself), I was so impressed with Movie Collector that within 5 minutes I had registered it. It's great that there are companies producing quality software tools at very affordable prices.
I am an Electronics design engineer and write a fair bit of software for many "Embedded" systems, so I appreciate the time that goes into developing products such as MovieCollector, and hence its real value.
I will let you in on a little secret; I purchased these programs back in 2001 (approximately) I quit using it because I was always working and never had time to use it.
I asked you a question about the DVD Collector and you gave me the answer so quickly and efficiently that I could not believe the incredible service you provide, "Simply Great" especially for this day and age when people just want to sell then cut and run.
Years ago before buying your program I tested several others, yours was so far beyond what anyone else had so I purchased yours.
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!
Thank you! I will absolutely be purchasing Movie Collector Pro this weekend!
I have recommended your Movie Collector program to my family, friends and anyone who will listen to me. It is easy to use, very reliable (bug proof!), and it has all of the capabilities and features that make it a very powerful tool.
And last but not least, I think that one of the best elements of your software is your outstanding customer support. For me, Movie Collector Pro has become an important and valuable investment for my movie collection.
Afgelopen maand ben ik van Windows overgestapt naar een Apple machine en ook daarop werkt het zoals je mag verwachten: foutloos! Grootste gemak vind ik dat films snel gezocht worden in een aantal, door jezelf te bepalen, databases en dat je eenvoudig kunt bijhouden waar je een bepaalde film ook alweer neergezet hebt (of in welke map je de DVD gestopt hebt).
Thanks for a job well done.
The barcode entry really makes it easy when you have that large of a collection to start entering. I was able to complete entering my 800 plus movie library in almost no time using the barcode entry method. It was really a lot of fun because it allowed me to get acquainted with all my movies all over again.
This is really a slick program for interfacing all of my dvd's and other items to my home theater system via Media Center.
Good job and keep up the great work.
With the enormous collection of movies I currently own, it is now possible to digitally store, identify, and retrieve each and every movie in its own separate category. This used to be a very time consuming and cumbersome task. Now that I have your great movie collector edition, selecting and organizing my movies has become an easy and even enjoyable task.
Thanks again for making such a great, user-friendly collector database. I am always looking forward to seeing what new and exciting developments are coming out next from your software team!
I just wanted to let you know how great it is to finally have my DVD OCD under control. I'm very happy with the software over the years. As many people as I tell about your software... Thanks for making things easy for me and to the customer support staff, quick response and you don't talk to me like I'm and idiot (Ex: "Is the computer plugged in?"), what else can be said but thanks.
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.
The CueCat hooks up with no problem and within seconds of plugging it into any XP machine your off and running. If you don't have a scanner either because you didn't want to spend the cash or didn't think it would be much of a benefit, take it from someone that manually input over 200 movies. You want to scan bar codes instead of manually inputting the information.
The CueCat is relatively cheap so cost should not stop anyone. It completely eliminates input errors and it scans fast!
Just my 2 cents worth of input, hope it helps someone else decide to use a scanner.
I so glad the "Collection Status" "On Order" button that was added. It really helps me manages my collection. (Now over 1,200 DVDs).
I have a large library starting and what I like about it the most is that if I loan something out it will let me know instead of losing it and not getting back. And love the way you can do the covers and everything so if I have a friend that wants to look in the library instead of the sheets I have printed out for my case they can see the cover and what is on each one of the disc in my box sets or just a single disc.
So I just can't wait to get the software and thanks for comming up with this I love it.
Back to the movie store I go! The scan tool was just a feature I could not have lived without, I didn't want to start a database and spend months typing the info into a program for my 1000+ DVD's, HD, BluRay and VHS movies. I think it actually took me 4 days, while watching TV to do so. And the ability to add movies that were not found automatically was also a nice feature.
I would, and have, recommend this program to anyone with any size collection! The larger the better!
