CNET Editors' review

MediaMan provides users with an innovative way to manage all their books, movies, and music. While the program does an excellent job of performing its primary function, its special feature was another story.

We were able to breeze through the program's drab listing of its commands because the program is laid out with a simple click-and-drag interface that felt natural from the start. Populating our media collection was surprisingly fun, since we only had to enter an item's name, bar code, or keyword for its image, title, year, and production information to be automatically downloaded from the Web. We've tested other programs that require users to do this manually, so we really liked the time and energy saved. Books, movies, and music were automatically placed into a category-based file tree that we could edit and search. Unfortunately, its features weren't this smooth. Its description promised an online price-monitoring tool (PAT), but we couldn't locate it. Whether it is a design flaw of making the item hard to locate or it simply doesn't exist in this program, we were frustrated. But even without the PAT, we were still impressed by the ease of managing our media collection with this tool.

MediaMan comes with a 30-day trial. While it doesn't live up to all its promises, the programs functionality was surprising and accurate and we still recommend it.

    "Really bad. Crashes all the time"

    July 18, 2012  |   By Samwardill

    Version: MediaMan 3.10.1109

    Pros

    Could be good if developer took the trouble to fix the bugs

    Cons

    Software kept crashing (after uploading each two or three books). I contacted the developer and his only advice was to use different anti-virus. I did try a different anti-virus on a different pc and had the same issue. I asked for my money back. The developer declined do I got my money back via my credit card issuer (as the software was not fit for purpose).

    Summary

    Waste of time

    "Exactly what I have been looking for!"

    February 4, 2012  |   By kfbeard

    Version: MediaMan 3.10.1109

    Pros

    I have started entering in all the games and media we have that has over taken us. This software has proven to be a godsend. Automatic barcode lookup, importing of basic information, easy to view thumbnails. I run a gaming review website (http://www.countrygamer.com), and was getting overwhelmed with our library of games and what we had. This has helped out a ton keeping tabs of what games we have and don't have.

    Cons

    I haven't found any yet.

    Summary

    Completely worth the 39.95, I tested it out for a day and went ahead and purchased this.

    Updated on Feb 4, 2012

    Also wanted to add that I am running this program on Windows 7 with no problems with installation.
