Review last updated: 08/03/13

Pros
  • Easy to use
  • Stable download manager
  • Great community features
Cons
  • Slightly limited library
  • Client updates too often

"Expensive and bad support"

Really lousy support.. wouldn't recommend using this service to anyone.

On top of that, unless you buy from a special discount deal their products are often overpriced compared to physical stores.

Pros
  • You can download at once after buying
Cons
  • Support
  • Prices
