Okay so I haven't posted in here in ages. Never posted much at that. But I have to say first and foremost that I really loved Anydvd and Slysoft. The software has a very low footprint, works on the fly, and is updated frequently to deal with the latest copy protections that stop us from our legal right to make a copy of our discs. There is no doubt that Anydvd has always worked best compared to the competition. After that, Anydvd HD came along and offered the first and best solution to decrypt Blu-Ray discs and it virtually worked EVERY time as long as I updated to the latest version. I had a lifetime license for Anydvd and I was able to get the discount for Anydvd HD when I upgraded, so the price was very reasonable. Here's where I get upset. I understand that Slysoft was shut down and is no more. So yes, technically you can say that my lifetime license did work for the lifetime of "Slysoft." But not for the actual product! Because it's still the same product, just made by a company with a different name (whom are the same employees as well). I honestly could accept all this and just pay for Anydvd HD all over again (my license was too old to get any discount, which I thought was terrible). I mean it's incredible software. But what I don't understand is why the price SKYROCKETED. It costs a whopping $130 USD now for Anydvd HD with a lifetime license. It used to cost $30, then when they changed to the Euro it came out to about $42 or so. I just don't understand this huge price increase, considering this is not a complex program suite. It's simply still a utility with that same small footprint it always had. I know this post is going to come off as simply whining. But I honestly think Anydvd's price is way too high. Even for a 1-year license. The competition (multiple vendors) does have software that does the same thing and works better than ever, even though it's still not quite as good as Anydvd HD. None of them are charging anywhere near what Redsoft is for Anydvd HD. I really hope to see a price drop sometime, but I doubt that is going to happen. All that said, thank you for providing excellent software for me up until this point. I simply cannot pay the asking price as is, so unless it gets reduced I'll never be using Anydvd again. It's been on my PC since it launched so that's a big change for me.
