    "Works flawlessly in most cases."

    October 18, 2006   |   By bartkoslow

    Version: BidSage 3

    Pros

    I have used this program for over a year and it has helped me to snipe and win many items. It is the only free sniping program that I know about. It has numerous features, and all work well. You may preview the item, update the bids received,update sellers and all their items, etc. I have a 1500 mbps DSL connection and set the snipe for 6 seconds before the auction ends.

    Cons

    I had one failure in its sniping when I had two auctions ending one minute apart, it only sniped the first item, and I missed getting the second item. In the future, if I have two closely spaced items I will use BidSage for the one I want the most and bid for the other using a different method.

    You MUST update the VARS in the setup before running the sniping to make sure the program is up to date.

    "Finally got it set up properly, Worked perfectly"

    October 06, 2006   |   By artman10299

    Version: BidSage 3

    Pros

    Its free !! This is my 4 th bidding program, first three don't work anymore, wasted over $50.00 on them. This program is small and simple. It's ALL on you're computer. No sending your password to some unknown server. You can set it to bid at seconds before auction ends.

    Cons

    You MUST download the updated 3.17 update, then you delete green Bidsage icon from Bidsage file, then copy and paste new update to file. Then it will work properly.

    "Free, works well, poor interface"

    April 30, 2006   |   By JeffSReid

    Version: BidSage 3

    Pros

    I used BidSage for about a year and it worked everytime (except when I set it up wrong). BidSage got my bid in on time everytime. An earlier post said it cost $80, but that is not true. AuctionSage, a management program for auctions, offered by the same developer, costs $80 per year.

    For the guy who lost his bid and blamed it all on this program, come on. Why on earth would you set up an important bid for something without doing a test run first. It took me a couple tries too, but I tested it out on books and CDs that I could lose a bid on first. Then... when I got it right after a few tries, well, you get the idea.

    I'm tempted to give it a 1 star though.... I don't want EVERYBODY sniping, I'll lose my bids! (Perhaps, hmmmm, that's why it got some low ratings for others). In fact, it is a 5 star program in my book. But I know there are some picky people out there who can't figure out how to do simple tasks on a computer without fancy pictures, so to appease them, I knocked one star off.

    Cons

    The user interface is NOT intuitive. If you use your head (and not assume everything free should come easy) you'll figure it out. Though the search window is helpful, especially to set up a bid, I still find using a traditional browser for eBay searches the best method.

    "It works and its Free !!"

    December 24, 2005   |   By djkevhead

    Version: BidSage 3

    Pros

    FREE FREE FREE. Fairly Simple Program. Was able to begin right away .. Password and ID remain on computer not on a server like other free program.. Its hard to complain about something thats Free but yet people do.. No spyware and no popups,No crashing. What else could you ask for !! It Works and its simple to use.. Glad I tried this.. My guess, If you have crashing problems its not related to this software but someother conflict on your system

    Cons

    I wish the search options could be narrowed to specific ebay sub catagories. When searching a product like a laptop, your results will see many listings of parts for laptops that fall under the brand name your searching. Other then that it seems great ..

    "terrible program! Works when it feels like working!"

    July 26, 2005   |   By ulookin4me

    Version: BidSage 3

    Pros

    when this program works - its great!

    Cons

    Don't even think about using this program if you really want to place a bid! Over HALF the time it LOCKS UP your computer!!!! It gets to the bid - and DIES! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! Removing the program, re-isntalling it does help (for a few days) then the problems start all over!

    "Couldn't get it to work"

    July 14, 2005   |   By msatlas

    Version: BidSage 3

    Pros

    It's free.

    Cons

    I couldn't get this program to work. I tried to test it out by using the Place Bid function to make sure it could log in to my ebay account. Every time I tried, it went to a "problem logging in" page. I use Mozilla Firefox and that page said what needed to be done with Internet Explorer to make things work. I changed IE to my default browser, changed the settings that needed to be changed, and it still wouldn't work. Maybe there's a patch or something I need but I can't find anything on the publisher's site. Oh well.

    "Great way to try auction sniping"

    June 08, 2005   |   By jmoorefield

    Version: BidSage 3

    Pros

    I have never had a problem with the stability of the software. I have been using it for some time now and it works great. And props to the developer for writing updates to a free program everytime ebay DOES change their system. Not to mention, the update notice is very evident when you start the program. I have saved tons of money with sniping and love the fact I don't have to babysit my computer. Even if you close the program, it docks the sniping part in you system tray and still performs the snipe. No spyware or adware. I love it.

    Cons

    Granted, it is not as polished as it could be. The search syntax needs to match ebay's and the bids need to be able to be linked so that if you win the item it will not snipe the others that it is linked to. Also I would like to have the option of viewing the items web page in a seprate browser window so there is not as much scrolling in the frame. But in my opinion, these are minor issues compared to the benefits.
