Hey there BHW, I am working to do my due diligence before investing in Xrumer. I have read over just about all the threads I can find here on Xrumer. It looks like that is the tool that all the big boys are using (Please correct me if I am wrong). I am trying to find out all the extra costs necessary before I get involved. So far it looks like Xrumer can be purchased somewhere between $540-570 (honestly, at that price, who cares about $30 bucks?). Sounds to me like Xrumer support totally blows unless you speak Russian, which I don't. So if I want to get the most use out of it in the shortest amount of time, I should get a tutorial like Xrumer Unleashed for $299. If there is a better one out there, please let me know. Monthly software fee? I'm unclear about this one. I have heard that Xrumer charges you $10/mo to maintain your license. Can somebody please confirm? Dedicated server? This seems to be a point of contention for many XR Blasters. I figured I would start out with it on my home PC (3GB, Dual core, 5-10MB internet connection) while I am learning, and then once I was rolling in the cash, I'd upgrade. Cost of an Xrumer dedi seems to be about $100-200/mo. Is that about right? Time. I should probably put all other projects on hold for about a month while I learn Xrumer. Do you think it would take more than a month to get the hang of the software, if I have Xrumer Unleashed to guide me? I'm not afraid of doing the work (noobs, read that again. It is good for you.) Addons? I have heard that you can buy some good mods out there for Xrumer. Some say you can get an addon that will train XR to post on Pligg forums. Then I would be able to also do what Autopligg does. What (in your most humble opinion) are the best addons for XR and how much are they? Do I need scrapebox, if I have hrefer that comes with Xrumer? Is scrapebox better than hrefer or will they both do the same thing? Which one is more user friendly? Ok, so in summary: 1 time costs: Xrumer - $570 Xrumer Unleashed - $299 Xrumer Mod - $100? ScrapeBox - $60 Total: $1029 Monthly Cost: Xrumer License fee (or whatever): $10 Dedi: $150 Total: $160/mo Please feel free to let me know if I missed something. Considering what I have written and dedication level (you rarely see other noobs doing "due diligence."). Do you think I can make my money back in the first month? Is it all reasonable to make $1,000 in your first Xrumer month? I just want the software to pay for itself. Thank you in advance for your input. If you post a good reply here, I will hit the "Thanks" button on your post.
