    When it worked, it wasn't bad.


    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT OR ANY LULU SOFTWARE PRODUCTS! The customer NON support is totally non-responsive to assisting someone, they will put you on hold and will not come back to you. I purchased the product from Fry's Electronics and installed it a couple of months ago. My computer crashed a few days ago and I had to reinstall all of the software. When I tried to register SodaPDF, it would not recognize my license key. I called their "tech support" number and was told that the tech needed to remotely access my machine to see what the problem was. NONSENSE! I had just installed a fresh copy of Windows and had Norton Internet Security running so there was literally no chance of a virus. He insisted that that was the only way that he could help me. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was put on hold indefinately. Bottom line: I paid $59.99 for a two-month software subscription!


    I will never buy another product from Lulu software. They are impossible to contact, they didn't even respond to my email that I sent them. Don't waste your time or money, there are other products that do the same job that will not give you the heartburn that this one does!
