Pros: - Cross Platform, for Windows, Mac and Linux

- Have a great un boarding, that help you understand the workflow and the concepts inside the tools

- Amazon S3 and Dropbox integration for files download inside the pages, in fact this feature was a deal winner

- Scheduling and Recurrent scraps!!

- An API that help you do what ever you want (almost)

Cons: - Sometimes is not the most user friendly tool, this kind of tools never are in my honest opinion.

- Some of the steps are redundant and you will have to re do it over and over.

Overall: The idea that you can upload files directly to S3 help us a lot with a manual task that were we needed to download 30 to 50 files a day and uploaded to our platform and now this is done automatically. In other words HEAVEN

Pros: Intuitive, logical interface (after a few hours of learning curve).

Cons: Requires lots of steps that could be grouped for common tasks.

Overall: Downloaded the app and was up and running in a few minutes. By the way, I'm on a Mac and other, popular web scraping tools won't work on Macs, so kudos to ParseHub for being multi-platform. I knew nothing about the technology of web scraping except the general concept. After playing around with it for about 30 minutes, I started a live chat with Hoda, one of their customer service reps. She offered to do a live training call with me (for free). I played around with it for a couple more hours, then got on the phone with Hoda the next morning. She explained everything I hadn't figured out. Super easy once you figure out the basic logic of it all. The application starts to become truly intuitive after a couple hours (and a quickly training call from Customer Support). Still can't believe they gave me 30 minutes of live support as a free user. Very cool. Have already run four projects and saved my company weeks of manual, primary research and accelerated our business goals by that same amount of time. Well done, ParseHub.

Recommendations to other buyers: Customer support is phenomenal.

Pros: Pulls info from most web pages without needing to have dev knowledge. Basic functionality is easy to use and advanced is learnable and extra powerful.

Cons: Takes some time to learn the ins and outs but that's typical with this type of tool and their videos and support is top notch. Once in awhile, I've found a page that it can't handle but that's been few and far between.

Pros: Easy to learn and use. I looked at many options and customer rep responsiveness made all the difference. I'm not a programmer and I am efficiently using this daily and am scraping away. No Software is perfect, however, some of the more advanced functions are tricky but customer rep has helped me through each and every question that I have sent to her.

Pros: Very easy to use

Great free version to check out all the features

Cost effective if you want to upscale your data mining needs

Scheduling

IP rotation

Ability to use regex

Ability to post straight on google sheets

Great customer support (even for free version)

Shows screenshots of what the system saw

One of the best debugging modes I've seen with great features.

Cons: Can't format extracted data.

Though this can be rectified by applying macros to your excel and posting straight to it.

No real cons.

Overall: Helped me collect data form different online distribution channels for our projects

Comments: It is very simple to work with ParseHub. Intuitive and friendly but powerful at the same time.

Projects run in the cloud and you get an email once they've finished. Customer service was always fast and accurate.

I'll keep using it for sure!

Pros: Of no use for intermediate to complex level scraping

I tried with medium to large sized data sets, site I have scraped before with open source tools (BS4, Requests etc)..and parsehub couldnt handle it...might be useful for non programmers wanting incredibly basic scrapes

Cons: Unable to parse a intermediate complexity JSON, XML etc

Can not compete with BS4, Requests etc in Python

Sites I have scraped, couldn't be scraped by parsehub...open source does a much better job

Overall: None, see my review
