What I like most about Media Monkey:
- Speed: Media Monkey is FAST! It leaves Music Match in dust. Media Monkey startup is very quick and noticeably faster in general operation.
- Many different ways to browse music collection: based on usual Artist, Genere, Year and also location, title, rating classification
- Many more media formats are supported: OGG, WMA, MP3, FLAC etc, with LAME encoder plugin (instead of Fh MP3 encoder).
- Media can be easily converted from any format to any format.
- Many ways to organize music (Music Match has only limited options) with virtually limitless possiblities. I like to organize my files in Genere\Album Artist\Album Name hierarchy. Most media players won't allow me to do that.
- Media Monkey has a feature called Virtual CD which allows you to catalog the physical CDs
I have decided to ditch Music Match (even if I've spent about $60 for lifetime upgrades!). The free version of Media Moneky has all the features I need except for the Media Monitor (similar to Watch Folders in Music Match). For now I'm going to stick with free version.
