Has anyone used the software database from collectorz.com?

http://www.collectorz.com/

It looks awesome. I am considering picking up the movies, music, books, and comics versions. I just wanted some feedback from anyone who is familiar with the program.

Alternatives would also be appreciated.

Seems to have a bit of good feedback about it: http://geekshuiliving.com/2010/04/16/product-review-collectorz-com-collection-database-software/

I may have to get it, as well. I like the idea of the bar code scanners.

Yeah, all the reviews I've read have been great. I downloaded the free trial and I may indeed purchase the movie and comic versions. My wife introduced me to Calibre, which is the software she uses to manage her book collection, but conveniently forgot to mention until I tried to show her collectorz.

I'm not sure the music version would really be worth it, considering I keep all my music in iTunes and have almost no CD's anymore.

My movie/television collection is a different story, I have such a varied collection (DVD, Blu-Ray, digital copies, etc.) besides I love the whole IMDB thing they do with their software. My trial version limits me to 50 movies, but it is fully functional, and I really like it so far.

I agree the bar code scanner is awesome, a bit expensive, but awesome none the less.

As for the gamer version, we have so few games, it's really not worth it IMO. Even with my daughter's new Nintendo DS3 (Christmas) and my plans to buy an Xbox and PS3, I don't plan on buying a lot of games, just a few REALLY cool one's. That collection can easily be managed in an excel spreadsheet.

Could you imagine if they had something like this for our Star Wars collection? THAT would be awesome! Scan the bar code, enter it into the database, tie it to images and information about each figure, maybe character bios, etc.
