Sorry guys - cant recommend you any more

Quick post - just to let you know that I wont be recommending your product any more. I have recommended in the past to about 5 people who have bought - but no more.

Your product is good - but you are now just slicing it up in as many different ways as poss to generate revenue.

You want to charge me… $105 Just for lifetime bluray to bluray (forgetting the 20% sweener)… Thats a LOT of cash for just one small component. And I cant forget that I paid $49 (or whatever) for Lifetime DVDFab. While I reasonably expected to cover yor whole “DVD copy” product.

And on previous experience - if I pay the $105… you will split again and in 1 years time you will do something like - Blue ray to bluray will not cover Bluray to mobile - and you will ask me to pay again.

And now you only tend licence for a year or so… with a “small fee”… with no certainly what that means… “small fee” to you may not equate to a “small fee” to me. You just looking to hook me in.

Sorry - but I am not playing your game… you are heading the same way as WinZip… i.e. down the toilet.

Sorry - but you are pricing yourself out of the market. Such a shame.

Nevermind - I have the Interent - so have plenty of options

Am I alone in this view - anyone else care to comment?

Cheers

+1 Yoji. In addition, the program still can’t handle BD+.

Neither can anything else out there…for the time being…

Yoji - before you blythly claim you have the whole internet to work with to get what you want at the price you want, and then proclaim it here for all to read, best you do a little homework.

If you want to copy just DVDs (forget Blu-Ray for the moment), DVDFab, for a 2 year licence, is $57.60 (USD) subject to a 20% discount. If you decide AnyDVD is the way to go, they want $79.00 (USD), which includes BR, as they don’t sell just the DVD copier separately anymore, and there’s no discount on that price.

But you already have a lifetime licence for Fab, so your cost = $0.00 (USD).

Add Blu-Ray to that, and you add 76.50 to the price (again add the 20% disc)… still cheaper than AnyDVD.

So let’s start from scratch… Buy DVDFab, BR and DVD to Mobile… 2 year lic. = $132.00 USD. The same thing from AnyDVD (AnyDVD and AnyDVD HD + Clone DVD Mobile)= $158.00 USD.

Fab is still cheaper.

I checked a few other products in a random fashion, and most DVD copiers seem to be in the same range as Fab, and Blu-Ray comparisons are difficult, as all that’s offered is AACS decryption, and both Fab and Any do more than that.

DVD to mobile comparisons were more difficult (at least from one supplier…I suppose you could mix’n’match) as most don’t even offer that.

So tell ya what - do your homework, then let us know what you find.

AnyDVD does sell just the DVD Copy feature without HD for 49.00 for 2 years. just uncheck the HD and check the standard version.

Yes I would care to comment. I am very disappointed with the pricing structure:

  1. pricing is far too high - it places DVDFab at about double the price of cempetitors
  2. I hate the 2 year sub scheme. On going support for current version is much better.

I understand that it is difficult to generate constant cash flow from software. So I am happy to contribute; but, only at about half of the asking prices. I am yet to make the decision on DVDFab6; but, would have preferred a pricing scheme that rewarded DVDFab5 users more; without compromising the ability to attract new users.

[QUOTE=OCanada;2275603]Neither can anything else out there…for the time being…

AnyDVD HD definitely DOES decrypt BD+. My son uses it all the time for Fox and Disney movies. When Slysoft had their 20% discount a week ago, I could have had a LIFETIME sub for$115 which included DVD, HD-DVD, and Blu-ray. Now that is a good deal - far better than DVDFAb.

Then Fab, @ $57.60 USD less the 20% disc = $46.00 (approx.) USD, is still cheaper than Any. N’est-ce pas? EH??

Yes, I know, but if you frequent the AnyDVD forum at all, you’ll note that they’re not without their problems, too…

Yes, that 20% disc. from Slysoft was great last week, but it’s not on this week, and the Fab disc. is…

Slysoft has 20% discount frequently. I was one of the lucky customers that buy Slysoft bundle anydvd +cloneDVD + cloneCD with 20% discount and it was before the price and currency change. I paid $80 for the 3 programs. I think that DVdfab should has the option to buy a lifetime license.

All programs have bugs, DVDfab have a lot of problem and bugs like any program.

I wasn’t talking about program bugs… I was referencing a comment made by another poster that said that Any offers BD+ decryption, and while it does to a degree, it’s not yet an across-the-board decryption… there are discs it can’t yet handle, same as Fab (maybe fewer than Fab currently can’t handle, but I’m sure that’ll change…)

That’s why my comment.

BD+ protection change frequently like the structural protections in the DVDs, so anydvd or dvdfab will needs updates to handle them. So always will be problem when new protections appears

[QUOTE=calcu007;2275636]BD+ protection change frequently like the structural protections in the DVDs, so anydvd or dvdfab will needs updates to handle them. So always will be problem when new protections appears[/QUOTE]

We’re getting side-tracked here…my initial point was an answer to Yoji & Gods Boss about the apparent cost of DVDFab’s new price structure compared to the competition.

AnyDVD is generally recognized to be Fabs main competition. (we can argue that point later on a different thread).

As Fab and Any are configured differently, for people to compare one to the other (especially if they own earlier versions of either) is a complex process.

What I was trying to do was to show that a new buyer of either, starting from scratch, will pay less for Fab (181.00 USD Approx) then he will for Any (218.00 USD approx) for the same features (based on the seemingly ever-lasting 20% Fab disc. vs the sporadic Any disc., which is not available as of this writing).

Any arguments there?

:slight_smile:

all as i can say which is in my other post is the DVDFab is way to expenseive even including the 20% discount! and theres no way ill ever be buying at those prices!!!

fab blu-ray to blu-ray should be cheaper if it is an adon to fab that you currently have.
I have dvdfab and anydvd-hd and anydvd dose most BD+ as dvdfab dose 0 .
I just bought the Blu-Ray to Blu-Ray lifetime and put in the discount code and got no discount at checkout.

As for the high pricing a lot of people will look for the software Pirates?

Here’s my point…I’ve used DVFabFree for along while for DVDs and love the program. I have not had a need for BR yet. I’ve provided DVD Platinum many-many new paying users by reference that bought the product…I highly did and still recommend the quality and support. I can also see the need/challenges of software revenue streams.

BUT…I was considering as a “new pay user” to buy DVDFab and as one of the posters above mentioned I see all the “splitting” of features and individiual charges which sends me two messages…

  1. It’s just too expensive…period…do not care what comp is or isn’t doing, not going to pay this level of $$$ in this economy for software.
  2. The next resistance to buying besides initial $$$ is I would be concerned about future “splits” in features and appeals to extract $$$ from my wallet. I don’t get the warm-n-fuzzies based on the new structures I would not run into this future “splits”…which to me is not acceptable. Again, I don’t care what the comp is doing…I’m not buying theirs either…I had put DVD Fab on much higher pedistal because of how it [B][I]was[/I][/B] handled in past.

So, bottom line…you have one less sale on $$$ and message and also a very active multiple AV Forum member also not recommending your product. I respect you have a business to run so no hard feelings but I appreciate when my customers (or potential ones) provide feedback…so please take this in the spirit it is meant…just honest opinion…not emotion.

Regards & Good Luck.

I too have grown weary of the way this whole BD component has been handled. With the competition out there, having long time dedicated customers getting weary is NOT a good thing.

as this poster points out about pirate software, ive seen AnyDVD on websites with a keygen and patch, maybe due to the high price of the software, but never seen DVDFab!!!

i have seen fab & anydvd & 1click pro & clonedvd and alot more.

[QUOTE=boostman;2275818]i have seen fab & anydvd & 1click pro & clonedvd and alot more.[/QUOTE]

Yea. so have I. The only problem with those is that if too many people go that route, income for Fab will drop to the point where the Fab authors will simply drop the program, and no longer provide updates or new innovations, the web sites for Fab will disappear, and it will no longer be available at any price in a useful format. Just look at DVD Shrink and RipIt4Me and see what they can currently handle…do we want Fab in the same category?

That way, everyone loses…as long as Hollywood keeps up this ‘No One Can Exercise Fair Use’ mantra, and keep trying to come up with the “uncopyable” DVD, we need people like Fengtao and Ting to keep up the work they are doing.

Some may think it’s too high a price for this economy, and maybe just too high in principle for any software…check around and see just what the alternatives are (that is, if you still want to back up your DVDs).

For the price some might think is fair, the choices are poor, to say the least…

IMHO
