Editors' review

Greatly improve your eBay shopping experience with this set of helper functions. Pricepirates' multiwindowed, multitabbed interface may scare off some novice users, but operating this program is less complex than the crowded interface first implies. Expect some extra time installing this program. At first launch this application requires an automatic software update to version 4.3. Users who are blocking certain advertising Web sites will find this program removes any HOSTS redirects for mediaplex.com. We found that URL redirects through qksrv.net failed for some testers.

Pricepirates compares items for sale on eBay with exact or similar items at other sites. Operating this application is a breeze, but the interface is very crowded. Some users may feel they're lost in the information. However, there are so many shopping features included that there is sure to be a function you'll find useful. Quick searches through eBay, Amazon, and other installed marketplaces is the cornerstone of this application. Enter a search term and almost immediately your window is filled with links to eBay auctions and Amazon pages. Extensive information for each link is displayed in a spreadsheet-like window. One-click column sorting is instantaneous. You can easily create an auction watch list with e-mail or text message reminders. Comparison of products from the various sites is helpfully displayed in one tabbed window.

While we didn't like the URL redirects this application uses, there are more than enough helpful features in Pricepirates to make it worthwhile. As freeware, there really isn't any reason eBay buyers shouldn't give this a test.

    "Pretty smart way to make money...for PricePirates"

    August 22, 2008

    Version: Pricepirates 3.0.0.9

    Pros

    Home Page HiJacker. Annoying...

    Cons

    when you use this tool, you access the website throught their host website. anything you buy, gives the owner of pricepirate a cut of the purchase. pretty smart, but sneaky. you can do the same thing as this program, without this program. pricewatch.com, newegg.com...those will get you some good deals.
