I had my wife buy me the wine software and wireless scanner for Christmas. I was excited to upgrade from a spreadsheet to help keep track of our collection. Little did I know that this software requires more work than simply typing the data into Excel. The software is BASIC and offers very little user customization. Furthermore, the data that the app receives from the bar code is WACK. You have to go into each scan and adjust most every field. After about an hour of playing with it, I was bored of fixing each scan. I told my wife that I wanted to return it due to lack of usability. She contacted the company and they told her NO RETURNS! She explained that I thought the application was one the worst I've ever seen and they eventually said OK but with a 20% restocking fee. Are you kidding me? This company does not believe in Customer Service and will never survive. Do yourself a favor and keep track in a spreadsheet - it's easier - and saves you from donating money to a well marketed but POOR customer service company.

I have used Collection or Media as it has become since version 1. It was slow. It is a lot faster now. There was a serious problem when Apple did a Quicktime upgrade, which totally screwed up the ability to check your collection with a scanner. It was out of action for months. That has been fixed and works well.I have not had any problems for more than a couple of years. This latest version works fine I can use the scanner to check the entries.

As to the costs for the software add-on like comic, these are a bit pricey, at $39 each but if you already have the kit it is worth it. I already have the Media, Home Assets and will be considering Kitchen next.

There are a few issues like you cannot alter the view. It sorts the CD's by the album name where as I have mine sorted by artist, so it is not easy to check against the print outs. I would have given it a higher rating if the print outs were better.

I bought the hardware/software bundle when it was just the media catalog version. They then added the other applications to the bundle. I inquired about the additional software and they wanted to charge me to buy the software.

I find that unacceptable that BECAUSE I bought this as an early adopter I would be forced to pay for things that are now part of the bundle.

I use Delicious Library and thus I'm not interesed in Intelliscaner's software. I've heard they aren't too jazzed
about supporting other software library. Seeing as how their
scanner hardware is OEM from other vendors and these vendors sell
cheaper I'm likely to avoid Intelliscanner altogether. The Microvision scanner looks good. I'll probably go with that.

This is by far the worst Mac company I have ever dealt with! I spent over $1000 on an inflated hardware and software bundle for my school and nearly all the software is defective. First of all, the applications are written in REALBasic, so be prepared for a slow experience. Second, IntelliScanner simply fails to respond to bugs. In Collection, the main scroll bar DOES NOT WORK! When I emailed them over a year ago about it, they said to use a mouse with a scroll wheel! Finally their prices are appalling. I did some research on and found that the exact same product can be had for significantly less:

IntelliScanner: Kanecal.com $79 (Compare to $200)
Flic Scanner: Flicscanner.com $129-249 (Compare to $179)
IntelliScannerPro: Kanecal.com $79 (Compare to $400)
Scanabout: Direct from Manufacturer for $500 (Compare to $900)

They are just out there to take your money and give you rotten software. Our school was duped into believing that they "stand behind their products". STAY AWAY!
