Pros: - Easy to use
- Multi-function
- Flexible plans
- The full-screen function does not contain hosting address

Cons: - Missing internal search engine for high volume entry
- Hosting still photos beside of 360 (based on compatriots)

Overall: It's perfect but does not meet our requirement.

Pros: I enjoyed the ftp server and the ease of use of the software. The posted rendering of my images truly added a great value to my product listing.

Cons: The software required a small tweak to be able to comply with eBay listing policy. The staff worked with me to address this issue.

Overall: This software added a unique element to my eBay listing which other competitors in my niche did not have. Also, the product created an "ease of use" for my customers which allowed them to become immersed in the photos of the products which were now interactive.

Pros: Easy to use and it Had a free option which was great for us because we were using it to trial while building a new website.

Cons: I found that the folder system was a bit klunky to use. Keeping in min that this was probably early on. Other than that there wasn't a lot of other cons.

Overall: Easy for us to trial the 360 images we took.

Pros: Simple. The GUI is very user friendly. When I first tried using it I noticed how user friendly the GUI is and how quick the 360 spins were created. The spins are easily embeddable on your website with many customization options and the control are smooth and accurate. I've used other similar online services in the past, but I found Siri to be the most professional and surprisingly low pricing. The support was very fast for when I had some questions, that's something that is also very important to me.

Cons: It's solid, I can't think of any issues with the software. It's simple enough for users who just want to drag and drop and be done - but it has many customization options for advanced users.

Pros: I love the plug and play option across multiple platforms. The ability to convert 360s to video and animated gif are great for social media and other platforms that don't offer 360 capability.

Cons: Have not come across issues yet. I had some issues with my theme and Sirv but customer support remedied the issues within a day.

Pros: It is a relatively simple manipulation system, the images are delivered as promised with good speed without deterioration of them. The configuration options are good, we had no problems so far.

Cons: What I do not like is the drawing of symbols for enlarging and reducing images. The design could be cleaner, more modern and discreet, it has to be visible more to the user and not compete for the attention of the user, more than the photo published.

Overall: An additional option to offer to customers. I have a client who bought the idea and is already a user of the services on the site, with very good acceptance of the project.

Pros: The simplicity of the interface. Always easy to get up and running and the documentation provides a detailed explanation of what to do.

Cons: Sometimes it is tough to help people with implementation beyond just the iFrame. Also we have found that the share functionality is nice but when they are viewing it on large screens, we get feedback that it is loading to slow, most likely because they are having to load full resolution images.

Overall: Ease of helping clients run it and a simple way for clients to test out a hosted viewer solution as opposed to clients having to try out actual integration of viewer code.

Pros: Sirv is incredibly user-friendly. I can upload 360° product images without overly specific naming conventions. I can customize features of the 360° product spin within Sirv platform. For example, adjusting fullscreen, zoom, autospin, hint language, watermarks, etc. are just a few of the features that you can customize with basically one-click. I also really like the ability to quickly and easily convert 360° product spins to videos and GIFs.

Cons: I'd like to be able to incorporate multiple 360° product images (different products) into a single viewer. This feature may exist, but I haven't found an intuitive way to do this in my use of Sirv. It may just involve a special workaround that I have yet to discover.

Overall: The ability to upload image files quickly without having to rename them. The ability to easily customize 360° product spins with numerous features. The ability to convert 360° product spins to videos and GIFs.

Pros: UI is simple and elegant while offering lots of bang for the buck when it comes to features and customization.

Cons: I wish there was an app form. I don't mind using the web-based service, but a desktop feature would be unbeatable!

Overall: Easy implementation of storage and utilization of 360 Degree photos that showcase products, both new and used, to a variety of customers. It's invaluable when taking into consideration the thousands of dollars people spend on the equipment we feature with Sirv.

Pros: The customizability of spin sets and ease of use! I haven't found a host for spins that compares to sirv. It really has the right features.

Cons: The pricing per GB of storage seems pretty steep to me, especially when high quality spin sets can be 2-4mb an image. It adds up fast. But the features built into sirv help weigh in on the price.

Pros: The output is great! And I think that is a Good idea the possibility to use the service for free as a demo to understand haw Good is the service

Cons: It Is not very easy to use so it Is for advanced user. The 360 spin with two rotational axis is excellent, but not so easy to understand and obtain

Overall: I use very much the 360 spin. It is useful to obtain a result that is like a 3d digital model but, with less complexity in implementing it in a website

Cons: The load time for the images are a tad slower than some of your competitors. This is the main drawback of this software.

Pros: For me Syrp genie mini with software works as I did expect. I first turn on the Syrp genie mini. Then I open software on my smartphone, start connecting, software starts bluetooth on phone and connection comes fast. I do need one and a half turn, so this is 540 degrees. Then I have to set time, in my case 3 to 5 minutes, depends on the situation. When camera is ready, I press video record button on camera and then start Syrp software. On my smartphone I can read degrees, time and a graphic where I can see how far turning is from starting point and end point. When 540 degrees turning is finished, Syrp genie mini stops. Then I press record button on camera again to stop the recording. When I will make another recording with same settings, I just can make a new start with software, settings will be the same. With Cappasity Easy 3D Scan software I then make on my computer a 3D-file, ready for web or e-shop for 3D4webshop.

Cons: Sometimes the Syrp genie mini does not stop turning automatically after finishing the pre set turning.

Overall: I now can make smooth video recording with my camera, while turning.

Pros: Sirv has a simple user interface. It knows what it does well and capitalizes on it. Its functions are somewhat limited, but the team is very willing to discuss enhancements to their platform and program.

Cons: The simplicity of the program was both the greatest value and only con worth mentioning. Again, my concerns about the limited functions were met with specific and detailed conversations about ways to meet customer demands. I'll never forget the willingness to provide direct development to enhance features to the customer's needs.

Overall: Sirv provided a solution to image and "spin" hosting. Our e-commerce company needed a simple and effective means to host our 360-degree photography and Sirv fit the bill. Additionally, they consulted with our team directly to brainstorm additional solutions we may have found beneficial.

Pros: The interface is clean, the structure makes sense, and the image processing is FAST! I appreciate that the customer service is willing to make custom code changes when things go wrong.

Cons: It could use more flexibility with the way it displays 360 images on BigCommerce. I would like to be able to put more than one 360 image per product, and I would like the ability to have a common-sense folder name instead of just the product ID (while still associating with the BigCommerce product).

I'd also like some more commands in the context menu. I'd like to be able to right-click a folder to delete instead of having to use the top bar to delete.

Pros: Amazing 360 videos easily. Although compressed a lot the images still look great. Love how smooth they look and the in house compression is pretty simple. Lots of features too. Some I don't need but they really are great when tested.

Cons: Told to upload the largest sized images which uses massive space which I am charged for. Then sirv crushes the files to deliver the 360. Although they don't charge for their created files there should be an option to only keep their files so you don't have to go on higher priced teirs.
The file management system can be a little confusing and convoluted at times. Folder options are pretty hidden.

A lot of options are quite a few clicks away so getting lost can be an issue at first.

Pros: The images definitely load faster and makes the images lighter / better optimized for my wordpress site. I'd say this app alone improved my wordpress more than any other optimization effort that I performed to my site. It did not require any technical task - it simply took in quick configurations and handled the rest for me.

Cons: The pricing.
I was looking for an image hosting /optimization solution for the site , which is for a non-profit organization (church). The steep pricing plan for anything more than 0.5 GB storage is not something I can afford.
If I was a business user, I'd definitely consider this pricing to be reasonable, but not for my church.

Overall: My site has been definitely improved in terms of load time performance due to image hosting CDN and re-sizing.

I use it to host product 360s and stopmotion image sequences. It's the best platform i've found!

Pros: The automatic image processing. I can upload the high quality and it automatically formats it for fast loading.

Cons: It's impossible to select lots of photos to batch edit or batch delete a bunch of files at onces. I litereally had to go through and select about 1200 photos one by one and delete... very time consuming!

Overall: Beautiful user interface that I can imbed on my website. And it works on mobile platforms the same!

by Sirv on May 02, 2018

Thanks so much for your review Nathan! This is really helpful feedback for us. If you need to delete many files again in future, you can select all currently shown files and folders with Ctrl+A on your keyboard. Our UI team has a task to make that more obvious and we've just given them a nudge to prioritise this!

Great product, great price, great support! Couldn't be better!!

Pros: The customer support team is very helpful and responsive. The software is pretty easy to use and having a free introductory storage plan is great.

Cons: The capacity of the free introductory storage plan is not really enough to do a lot with, but it lets you get started and test things out. The monthly cost is high for us simply because we use Magento CE so the SIRV account is more than our website hosting.

Overall: improved site speed and reduced storage space
