I know what I am about to say may stir the pot a bit but I would like to voice one opinion. I have been a very happy customer of Slysoft for many years and will continue to support any product that Slysoft cares to offer. I have been in the IT game for about 23 years and feel the support I get from Slysoft is almost is to remarkable to believe, as I don’t find this from Microsoft (I am a gold partner), Cisco, Research in Motion, etc were I pay hundreds and in some cases thousands of dollars for a maintenance contract with these organizations yearly. Having said this, I just paid $14 something to PowerDVD for a two year maintenance contract may or may not be a good decision only time will tell. We must appreciate the effort that Slysoft is going through to keep supporting us with Blu-ray and HD-DVD ripping, as I do enjoy my various media centers. The cost Slysoft must undergo to keep HD ripping alive must be silly, as well as the stress they undergo with each new movie release. I have heard a number of people voicing our willingness to pay for a new media player. However, I do believe we must appreciate that Slysoft is a business and we need to support business like these if we want to use their services in the future. I guess what I am saying is I am willing to gladly pay for a maintenance on your product. I use both formats HD and blu-ray as some movies are in blu-ray and some are in HD, however what I believe James in his last support update was referring to is if I have a movie which is coming out in both formats I will be buying HD-DVD. James I love your passion and brilliance. If I had a choice to keep blu-ray support going or Slysoft discontinue supporting the format, I would gladly pay a yearly maintenance fee to keep blu-ray ripping alive.
