|Upgrade to 8.1 & Great Support |

||Strengths: The new reporting system makes for real savings in time to update and review advertisers status.
Weaknesses: Return to main advertisers page defaults to listing of 25 users even when e.g. 50 listings set-up.
Details: As my number of customers increase it's very important that their advertising campaigns are effectively managed. The latest ASPBanner 8.1 version provides this support. My upgrade which was managed by Chris proved to be a breeze. After just a few exchanges of e-mails across the Atlantic the upgrade was installed along with my previous data onto a new UK based server.
I've had the upgrade running now for a couple of months and everything is working just fine. Being non too techie I like the products easy interface, the quick support, and positive attitude from CJWSoft.
Although I've not used any other banner ad delivery systems my research (including product trials) leads me to conclude that this software along with the superb support is probably the best value package around, easily beating other more expensive products.
Well done CJWSoft and keep up the good work.

||Strengths: Fast, Great Support, Stable
Weaknesses: Reports Could be a bit more detailed
Details: Been using aspbanner for about a year on dieselplace.com. run about 2.5 mil + impressions a month. aspbanner works great, I'm very happy. i wish the support for my forum software was half as good! Chris is very very prompt with email support and a couple mods for my configuration. He's always been polite and makes a great product and i don't think it can be beat for the price. The reports the end users get aren't as detailed as they could be, but i would still buy it all over again (again you can't beat the price) in a heartbeat. Definitely money well spent!

An Outstanding Banner Ad system!!!
Written by John Knapko from Florida's central gulf coast (Saturday, September 18, 2004)

||Strengths: Very affordable, easy admin interface, Terrific support!
Weaknesses: None that I can detect.
Details: I have done some research ahead of time and for the money, this banner ad system beats them all! I would say it beats the ones that are considerably more expensive as well! It was well thought out and developed. Chris is a talented person and offers very quick and very helpful answers to my questions.
My site is still a week or so away from launching, but I have tested the system using a number of test banners and have found the system to work flawlessly.
I can't wait until my site gets going to really see it in action.

For the price this system can't be beat !!

||Strengths: Serves Banners Lightning fast and Stable Too
Weaknesses: Some more reports would be nice.
Details: I must say ASPBanner Unlimited is one of the best ASP applications I have ever used. It is easy to setup, it is easy to use, and it is easily serving 1 million ads a week for us without a hitch. I noticed one review saying ASPBanner was using up resources on their server. I can not say the same. As a matter of fact sometimes we run the server for months without even rebooting it. ASPBanner is Rock Solid. It could use some more reporting options but what it has is sufficient. For 50.00 you can not go wrong. Chris from CJWSoft has been very helful and the CJWSoft support forums are full of great information. I would gladly purchase from CJWSoft in the future.

Not for larger sites
Written by Adam Brooks from North Carolina, USA (Tuesday, April 13, 2004)
Writer is with: http://spins.us
||Strengths: Easy and cheap - ok for small sites?
Weaknesses: Tapped resources on large site, limited functionality
Details: We installed this app on our spins.us web site. We receive a good deal of traffic, but have run stable for years. Within a few days of installation, our host notifed us that we were exceeding system resources. I had to remove it and go with an alternative solution. I can't receommend this for a big site, but may be okay for small operations.
Another thing to keep in mind is that it's really a pretty basic setup. Good or bad? I guess it depends on your goals. If you ever want to really get professional and offer innovative ad packages, you're going to need something a bit more robust than what ASP Banner provides.
We ended up going with http://phpadsnew.com and thus far a much happier. If anyone wants to buy the license off of me, they can get it cheap.

|Rebuttal From Listing Owner: Folks, this guy never even gave us a chance to help him. He actually never even asked for help. Its really too bad he had to unfairly bash ASPBanner in this review.
Bottom line is ASPBanner performs whether the site is big or small. A customer named John E. who now helps with CJWSoft development once ran a domain called winxpthemes.com (recently sold to some place that wanted the traffic). He served up over 10,000,000 impressions a week with ASPBanner and never had a problem. John described the application as the most rock solid ASP Application he ever used. My guess is the guy who posted this review has a ridiculously busy site on a shared server with 200 other sites and the hosting company got on his case because his site was using over 5% server utilization. Other than that there were probably no real issues. Unfortunately we'll never know.
As for the limited features, well, this sells for 50.00 after all. If it had every feature under the sun it would cost 10 times that. |
Excellent Product - Recomended
Written by Andrew French from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, UK (Thursday, March 18, 2004)

||Strengths: Cheap, Easy to Use, Does a Great Job.
Weaknesses: no comment
Details: ASPBaner turned out to be a great alternative to be a great choice. It does the job as good, if not better than some of the other ad management systems I've seen and is simple to install and use. By buying ASPBanner I saved my self a lot of time and effort by not having to buid it myself from the ground up.
If you wish to edit the code, you will find it simple and easy to understand but it's really not necessary as it performs as it should straight from the box.

Excellent Product - Excellent BackUp Service
Written by Chris Smith-Dunn from Yorkshire, UK (Wednesday, March 10, 2004)
Writer is with: http://www.harrogateonline.com
||Strengths: Cost - Service - Features - Speed - Ease of Use
Details: After trying to setup the banner scripts at first at not being able to get it to track the banners that were being displayed, I contacted the developer. I got an immediate response (allowing for US-UK time difference) solving my problem (my fault not the scripts). Another issue arose after that which the developer resolved immediately, even debuggung on the live server for me. I didn't want have to lose the use of this program as it is an excellent piece of software which the developer takes obvious pride in and rightly so. I am extremely pleased with product and level of service given.

Solid solution to a need

||Strengths: Speedy, easy setup, good response from developer
Weaknesses: None as of yet
Details: I was looking for a script to implement banner ads on one of my sites. The price has more than been made up in time savings. Product is easy to use, has excellent documentation for use and setup. I have not tried to customize the code so I do not know if that is difficult or not.

Written by Anonymous User (#1381-94) from Manchester, England (Thursday, January 29, 2004)
||Strengths: Simple to use and great support.
Weaknesses: Desirable: A copy banner function to originate same ad in new zone.
Details: The very quick response time and advice from Chris is excellent. We are at opposite ends of the 'pond' (atlantic) but have never suffered from any time zone lag. It's great! The simple but effective control panel.
Desirables: At times I have a need for the same banner in different zones and sometimes pointing to different url's. It would be helpful if a banner ad and it's settings could be copied and then modified before use. A banner having the same attributes except for say just a new zone or URL needs a complete set-up.
A link from the control panel to a User Manual would also be useful to double check out some of the finer points, eg banner weighting.
