Beware of this and other products from Arcsoft. Entirely slows down your Mac by running some weird services, causing Spotlight and Intego Virus Barrier running at 100% CPU usage.

Very good mediaserver software indeed (and for free) but it has some annoying behaviour:

Transcoding of .mkv videos won't work at all. Mencoder always crashes when i try to trancode a .mkv video with my PS3. I'm using OSX 10.5.7.

No iTunes/iPhoto intergration. PMS dosen't offer any iTunes, iPhoto or iLive integration. This way it's impossible to access my media in iTunes, iPhoto or Aperture libraries.

Except ot the transcoding feature (which is not working at all) Nullriver MediaLink offers full iTunes, iPhoto and Aperture integration and is worth the 20$ for license.

Since installing the new version GIMP won't work correctly anymore. After starting X11 the screen turns black/white and als fonts in the windows and menu bars are too big. I don't even see the OSX menubar anymore, so the only solution to is to force quit X11 so i can return to the desktop. This release is very buggy!

Will CleanApp 3 ever leave the beta state?

Also the logging deamon often still uses 90% CPU for hours.

Despite of these annoying facts CleanApp is the only Mac uninstaller witch can delet 100% of all files witch are written by a program/installer (thanks to the logging service).

All other uninstallers just search for similar file names of the application. So there's a great risk that not all files will be deleted or a importend system file could be deleted.

But to be honest, even so the other uninstallers work very well.

iPSP seems to be a very promissing tool. However it realy dosen't work at all.

The program runs extremly unstable and crashe ofte without any real reason. Converting movies is a gamble from the begining and it's absolutly impossible to install Homebrew tools or convert a PSX game for the PSP.

At the moment absolutly not worth the oney.

If you have troubles with this update like the installer won't find your current office 2008 installation please refer to:

This way you can patch the installer. At least this worked perfectly for me.

Why pay for this software when Apples Automator does the same job for free?

Transmit gives you a very nice GUI and iss very easy in use. However data transfer is very slow and unstable. I've tried to copy 250 GB of date to my NAS and i got only a max. 5 MB/s transfer speed. On top of that Transmit always got files witch could not be transferred and terminated the connection completly giving you no feedback what has been already copied and what not. Not worth it's money at all.

I've tried the same thing using FileZila and it works like a charm. Of course there is still data witch can't be transferred but FileZila doesn't quit the connection and continues copying the other files moving the not copied files to a seperate window. GUI is not very nice but compared to Transmit it works.

EyeConnect is a easy to use MediaCenter for OSX. It supports many diffrent devices like Sony's PS3. Unfortunatly PS3 support is not very stable at the moment.

The only issue here is the price 49,95$ is way too expensive and absolutly not worth the software. If you're looking for a better MediaCenter then try MediaLink witch is only 20$.

An an alternativ you can also try Twonky Media.
