A bit worried about buying Visionlab...

Hi, so I found on Amazon.com that TubeTape was selling Visionlab for lsightly cheaper than this website. I went ahead and bought it, but someone apparently had problems with the program. This is what they said: "Wow. I got this software from many recommendations, but this software is complete junk. All this thing does is give me error messages. I got to the FXhome forums to get help, and everything they tell me to do doesnt work. Don't EVER get this program! It it terrible. Maybe if they made it usable, it would be good! So much money wasted. Wow..."
Is sit possible that this person just got a bad disc, or is this something to be concerned about? I'm hoping it's just a bad disc.

If you are worried, try the demo. It will run exactly like the full version, as fart as performance.

Oh, I've had the demo for a while, and I've never had any problems, so I guess it will work. Thanks, Axeman!

I'd say it's a bad idea to trust a single Amazon review anyway. Just like on ebay, iTunes, or any other "the public can review this!" website, there are people out there who just want to give things bad ratings. Hell, this goes for Fxhome as well, with the -1s, and stars in the Cinema. Sometimes, a bad review is just a bad review, and has no actual bearing.
You can never know exactly what the real issue is with public reviews, because a lot of people will dodge the fact that they are the ones causing the problem, in order to put the blame on the product. The guy who wrote that amazon review could have been almost entirely computer illiterate for all you know. Or maybe his computer didn't meet the minimum requirements, and his problems stemmed from that, and not Vision Lab. You never really know.

Wow. That explains it even better. Oh, and for anyone who is interested, it will be arriving at my house on the twenty-ninth.

To add to Aculag's post AA, you've been here long enough to know that this is not some scam crap software, and you can tell from people like Axeman's diligent help that should assure you that this is not only a legit site/software, but that the help and community is exceptional.

As has been pointed out, reviews by members of the public are a mixed bag. When they work they can be great and often more useful than 'professional' reviews (which tend to score based on how much advertising has been bought by the publisher...!), but it only takes one disgruntled person to skew the results.
As Garrison says, if VisionLab really was like that reviewer describes, we wouldn't have such a happy and friendly community here.
