    Default Price Spy

    What's happened to Price Spy? It used to be very handy. Now it's completely useless.

    Definately agree. The simple design that they used to have was very easy to use. I dont use it anymore

    I think the new filters are great, if your not sure what your looking for then raise the filter level.
    Only thing that annoyed me was if you hit the back key you had to redo the filters.

    Its easier to just visit a couple of bookmarked sites then it is to wade through pricespy.

    Massive fail.

    it is indeed a massive fail. I used to refer to it regularly, but now its hopeless. Their new forums are full of complaints and requests the new owners revert to the old layout. the best way to use it now, is to avoid it altogether. Shame that

    I rarely use it now. Before the changes I'd use it every couple of days to check some stuff. Now it's just a pain to go through. I just don't like it at all.
    Meh....

    Its what happens when an offshore company comes in and takes over a company, without any consideration of their current customers. If enough people don't use it, they will be forced to change it by their advertisers, othrwise they will lose business.

    Maybe we should stress it to the advertisers then? Many of us emailing a few prominent stores each, so they'll get the message, then the stores will give the new pricespy owners the message.
    Meh....

    They will be able to tell from their stats.If they are getting less visitors, I am sure they will be complaining too.

    The guys who don't pay Pricespy to get direct links will probably be seeing less visitors, which I think is the stupidest new "feature"

    Other than that, once you get used to it, it's usable. The are still being incredibly slow at updating some categories though.

    I'd like to see some competition though. If there were 2 pricespy sites I think these new guys might start getting their act together
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
