"Very Poor Software - No Support"

April 07, 2008  |  By rondeaver

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This software is very unreliable. What I mean by this is that sometimes it successfully processes a DVD title. Sometimes it spends what seems to be an eternity and then reports an error, or just cfrashes.

Multiple emails sent for support have gone unanswered. The fine print of the user agreement notes that there are totally no guarantees nor refunds. This is one package I wish I tested thoroughly before purchasing a license, though you can only rip a short duration of video with an unregistered copy (I believe it is 10 minutes).

Look around and try other products before purchasing. Be sure this is the one you want before sending in your money for a license, otherwise you will be sorry.

"Developer Unresponsive"

December 17, 2007  |  By The_Shadow

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have to add my complaints to the chorus here. I did a complete clean install of Leopard and went to re-install Forty-Two DVD VX. Like everyone else here, the Serial Number I was supplied at the time of purchase no longer works.

Several attempts to contact the developer via his support page have gone with no response at all. A quick check of the same product on the MacUpdate.com website shows they have placed an editors warning on the product due to lack of support going on for over a year now.

Until this developer gets his house in order, I would strongly advise to save your money and look elsewhere.

"Upgrade is broken, developer doesn't respond to..."

March 01, 2007  |  By UnkaGar

 |  Version: Forty-Two DVD-VX Plus 3.0.9

Summary

...e-mails
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The previous verison of this software worked great and it was long overdue for an upgrade. However this was not the upgrade it should have had. They have added two addional devices and broke the program. I started out getting crash errors for the Nokia device. Now I don't get that, but now I can not change the encoding options. I have e-mailed to this developer several messages including all the information of the problems I have had with this upgrade.

I can no longer recommend this product. I will have to remove this from my system and consider the money spent on the upgrade to be a waste.

Summary

...after 1 wk
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I purchased the license on 9/21/06. It's now 9/28/06 and I have yet to receive a return e-mail from any of the 3 I sent, have not been able to contact a person in Sales, Support or Press departments (all go to voicemail).

I recommend not purchasing from this "company".

"Never Had a Problem..."

February 02, 2006  |  By iMarc

 |  Version: Forty-Two DVD-VX Plus 3.0.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Many folks complain that RnSK have not responded to their emails. I've never had a problem with them AS LONG AS I email them at the requested addresses.

I've used the various iterations of 42 for years and they've always performed well. I have tried the demo of 3.0 and will be purchasing the upgrade. The new UI is simple and elegant. Nice! A little more documentation would be nice for those of us that DO read the gol-dang manuals.

Yes, there are Freeware tools to do these tasks. If you want to save yourself a few dollars, do so. But please save the rest of us from having to read your moaning, groaning and griping!

"Paid but no license!"

January 05, 2006  |  By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

 |  Version: Forty-Two DVD-VX Plus 2.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I ignored the feedback on this page and decided to purchase the license anyway. The site says wait 15 minutes after payment and check your email for the license...well that was almost 18 hours ago and no license! Emailed support, no response.

Looks like they took me for $15!

I would highly suggest avoiding this product, besides Hand Brake does about the same thing for free, you just don't get the PSP and iPod formats, which realy didn't matter to me any how.
