    "Graboid ROCKS!!"

    October 8, 2013  |   By radiopipes

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    Super hard to find content is here! Full classic TV series. HD Blu-Ray rips. Movies before they hit stores. Thousands of new entries daily.

    Cons

    The new Graboid Beta has some issues. On demand player hardly ever works. Their search algorithm could use some work (be literal when searching).

    Summary

    I see that a lot of newbies have had troubles and whine like newborns...but for the rest of us who can use a computer and not just whack at the keyboard like a chimp...enjoy Graboid and continue to sing its praises. I recommend the "unlimited bandwidth" for $19.99 a month...worth every penny! Oh...and you'll need a few 3TB hard drives. Graboid coupled with VLC rocks my big screen!

    "Total Rip-off!"

    May 28, 2012  |   By grawlfang

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    No Pros since you are charged per dowload & if the file is not what you wanted you paid for nothing.

    Cons

    Graboid does not host or post any of the content so they are unable to guarantee the quality for any files. Total Rip-off if you purchase.

    Summary

    Do not pay them for anything. My free trial & 3 episodes of Dexter were exatly the same 2,5,8 wasted my free downloads. Only when I uninstaled their software 3 weeks later did they responed to my email telling me "We do not host or post any of the content so we are unable to guarantee the quality for any files." Total Ripoff if you purchase.

    "Probably illegal if it uses its own servers"

    April 29, 2012  |   By Grungy11

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    Contrary to popular belief, in the U.S., at least, unauthorized downloading of copyrighted material is not illegal. Only serving or uploading is illegal because it infringes on the copyright owner's exclusive right of distribution. Laws in other countries may be different. The Pirate Bay was busted in Sweden even though it did not serve any files.

    Cons

    I don't believe Graboid's statement "Please note that Graboid does not host any files other than commentary from users of our software." To deliver streaming movies it must use one or more streaming servers, either its own or someone else's. Graboid claims to get its materials from the Usenet. Usenet servers deliver files but cannot stream files as large as a movie. These require extensive processing in order to become viewable. Movies on the Usenet binary newsgroups are posted as a collection of from 10 to 50 .rar files which must be downloaded in their entirety and decoded with Winrar before they become video files (.AVI, MP4, DVD or whatever. Only then can they be streamed.

    Summary

    If Graboid licensed its content the way Netflix does, it wouldn't have to get it from the Usenet, from which anyone can download posted files with only a Usenet client and a $10 per month subscription to a Usenet server. Conclusion: Graboid is probably delivering unlicensed content. There are "free movie" sites that merely provide links to other people's servers but these servers come and go, and if Graboid is as reliable as most users claim, I suspect that it is operating its own servers.

    I consider it likely that Graboid eventually will be busted, but subscribers are risking nothing more than the price of their subscription.

    "very illegal"

    February 28, 2010  |   By Shadow075

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    seems to have long list of videos

    Cons

    access to downloads of newly released movies, how is this legal?

    Summary

    I'm uninstalling because there is no possible way this is legal, its no different than using bittorrent to download movies

    "A great, inexpensive way to watch movies on the go."

    November 17, 2009  |   By robochibi

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    Excellent Quality, Fast speeds of 400-600 KBS, All files are in Divx format and can be burned to dvd for viewing on a dvd player (that supports AVI), HD content!, A large selection of rare and OOP videos + adult content

    Cons

    The streaming is hit-and-miss, Poor subscription plans, horrible internal player

    Summary

    I just completed my free trial and I was mostly impressed. The quality was much better than I expected and the download speeds were very fast (400-600 kbs). The instant streaming does not work very well. About 1 out of every 5 times the streaming didnt work. It got to the point where I just forgot all about it and just waited the 30-50 mins for the file to completely download, not really a big deal. Hopefully they will fix this in later versions. The internal player is awful and lacking in options, but thankfully you are not restricted to using it. You can even burn the files to a dvd and play them on a Divx player or on Windows Media. Subscriptions are a little bit ridiculous- either you buy 10gb of transfer capacity for 5$ a month or 50 gbs for 15$ which is totally unnecessary for me. They definitely need something that is in-between those two options. I have also heard that there are viruses on some of the files you may download, although graboid itself does not contain any malware. I have not experienced any of this, but Im assuming some of the less legal downloads are prone to this. If you stick to downloading movies that have already been released on DVD than Im sure you wont have to deal with this.

    "Easy to use, good ROI"

    October 1, 2009  |   By ticallas

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    Easy to search, no viruses, low cost and you can test the program for free. Shows are up to date, great selection and the stream or DL option is great.

    Cons

    Lots of "cams" in the movies section, sometimes I have to sift through a few to find a good copy.

    Summary

    Still a big fan, quick to DL a show/movie, so many up to date options and of course easy online payment. Not sure how others paid but to the person that mentioned they cancelled the subscription but it renewed simply report it to paypal or your CC company - I had no issue stopping payment when I decided to put my account on 'hold' for a couple months while away on vacation but it might be an issue with your payment type as well.
    Two thumbs up here!

    "don't waist your time!"

    September 5, 2009  |   By crabie2009

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    None at all

    Cons

    The movies are of poor quality looks like was filmed at a movie theatre.

    Summary

    I downloaded a movie and someone stands up and walks to the right out of frame and was not part of the movie, poor sound.

    "Real Good, EXCEPT unexplained white screen problems"

    August 15, 2009  |   By cybersenior01

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    I'm still wondering if it's completely legal. You can get current tv shows from anywhere including premium cable channels like HBO. Great quality. These are in the dvix format and can be burnt to DVD

    Cons

    Unexplained errors like trying to open and only getting White screen. Doesn't have a gb teir between 10gb ($4.99) and 50 gb ($14.99) A 25 gb would be really good. I'm on dsl so would never even get close to 50 gb.

    Summary

    An excellent program for premium content, but not much customer service. If you can't seem to sign on like today (8-16-09), you're on your own. They send no notices of server problems or anything else. But, if and when one can get on, the content if 1st class

    "Watch yourself if you cancel"

    July 29, 2009  |   By crisc2004

    Version: Graboid Video 1.4

    Pros

    They do have alot of good selection of things

    Cons

    I canceled my membership back on February. An then it autimatically renewed its self in May and been taking money out of my account for the past 3 months and when I brought it up to there attention they said there was nothing they could do.

    Summary

    I will NEVER use this application again. All I wanted was a refund for atleast this month they just billed me for. But NOO they don't do refunds. You just lost yourself a customer and I'm going to make damn sure that everyone I know that uses it no longer does!
