In the course of writing reviews for Inmatrix, I get to see and test
every level of player available. This includes the "Big-3" triad of
Cinemaster/PowerDVD/WinDVD who are at the pinnacle of PC DVD quality;
but also some others striving to make names for themselves.
Some time ago, I was sent a copy of CoolDVD, a new name for the game
formerly dominated only by established players. I had hopes for this
new company, but started having problems almost from the beginning.
Install was finicky, and even after install; I never could finish a
movie. An hour into several titles, the player began resource choking
until it froze completely. Not what I want to see or use my sleepless
nights for! I was prepared to write a review that would extract
vindication for my lost hours! I was going to roast this newcomer who
abused my efforts with a substandard player! Time to get medieval on
somebody! Inmatrix has no mercy for poor products, New or not!
But wait! eMail! A letter from CoolDVD sales, asking me to please hold
the review! (And they were "just in the nick of time", let me tell you!)
The 1st version they say was only the beginning. Getting their feet wet
in the PC-DVD world. A new version was almost complete, and would fix
earlier issues, and show the world what CoolDVD was to become. So, MGI
got the nod for the last review, and showed us they were on the way up.
Now it is CoolDVD's turn at last. Do they rise to new heights from
their 1st effort? Are they ready for a serious Inmatrix review?
We shall see...
