    "Graboid - All that glitters is not gold..."

    March 26, 2014  |   By Mogwai101

    Version: Graboid Video 5.1

    Pros

    Quick download, great assortment of movies and up-to-date releases, great quality available.

    Cons

    Absolutely crap technical service. Kept queuing movies but not unpacking or downloading. Attached itself to the OutFox.tv 'virus' which is insidious and hard to shake. Updated to new 5.11 version and had nothing but trouble, emailed and was given a link to older version but no joy either. Response to my 2nd query was 'you aren't co-operating, we're trying to help you'...nice. Have ceased my membership. Can't download, can't get an answer...why pay for no service?

    Summary

    Initially I thought Graboid was great...however the issues with viruses, non-download and crap, even rude back-up has me ceasing my membership.

    "Worked fine for me, no malware installed."

    November 21, 2013  |   By wiredpinz

    Version: Graboid Video 3.58

    Pros

    Was able to install the software without problems. Created a free account. Downloaded a movie. Played it. This particular movie file was an .avi file, and I needed to also find and download a foreign-parts-only subtitle file. It was an English-language movie with some Japanese-language parts that needed English-language subtitles. I did some reading of some how-to articles on subtitle files. Discovered that I had to be sure the subtitle file had the same filename as the movie file. Or to make the filename was the same. Different extension though. It had to be in the same folder as the movie file.

    Cons

    No problems other than having to learn how to deal with subtitles.

    "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!
