    I fully recommend this addon. I can not confirm the slow download speed which is mentioned by other reviews. Maybe this was an issue of the past.
    The textures are looking great and the addon is really easy to use. The developer is also helping really fast if you have issues with using the addon. Grab it, you get great value!

    Download is too slow. It took me a week to be able to use it.

    The plugin per se is doubtless good, but the download speed around 50kB/s in 2022 is utterly unacceptable for such a large content pack. Maybe invest in AWS or some off-the-shelf cloud service for blender users around the globe?

    I'm rating this 5 stars because you really do get tremendous value for the dollar with this add-on, which has everything including the kitchen sink. It is very powerful and I know I have a ways to go before I really can take advantage of all its capabilities.

    BUT I have to say something about the registration, as others have mentioned. I just fired it up after a few months hiatus since the last time I used it...and wouldn't you know I had to go online to their web site to release it from my home PC so that I could use it on my work PC. While it's not the hardest thing in the world to do, it still required several steps, about 6 minutes of time, and a some brain bandwidth and fumbling around trying to remember how to do it. Very annoying. And now that I'm home, I will have to do it again if I want to use it...ugh... I suddenly remembered why I hadn't used this in a while - sometimes I'm just not in the mood to deal with this kind of silliness :)

    First-world problem? Absolutely, but here's the thing - I have literally hundreds of paid add-ons, including all the well-known and popular ones on BM, and NOT ONE OTHER DEVELOPER I can think of carries this level of protection for their product. In fact, the last time I can remember ANY software provider of any kind limiting a license to only 1 device at a time was probably sometime back in the 90s when I wasn't listening to Nirvana or Pearl Jam! So I guess in that respect, this add-on is charmingly quaint :D I think nearly every other developer on the planet has long ago figured out this is not really necessary. I really like this add-on, so I hope Andrew listens to his users and rethinks this policy.

    That out of the way, here are some thoughts about the add-on: Overall, there is a good, solid variety of materials, to cover most of the usual meat-and-potatoes needs, and tilted mainly toward archviz, as far as I can tell. The quality of the materials ranges from very good to fair with some on the mediocre side. None would be mistaken for Substance or Quixel quality, but if you really think about it you don't really need that level of detail for most projects. These are more than good enough for about 80% of my archviz needs. One can really create fantastic-looking scenes with many of these materials. And the ability to quickly tweak and mix textures with so many parameters at your fingertips (without having to open the shader editor) is simply unmatched by anything I've seen so far. The modular mixing approach is very clever.

    The car paint shader is especially excellent with the ability to easily create convincing iridescent color changes as well as flaking and orange peel effects. The water shader is also nice.

    Overall, this add-on more than merits 5 stars - once you're able to actually use it. I highly recommend it though it would be even a better value if the obstacles to its use are finally removed.

    The registration and updating procedures are horrendously slow and tedious! I switch between computers a lot and I honestly don't bother with this addon anymore. I've spent more time trying to set this up and downloading the updates than using the actual addon.

    Bought this a few years ago, but now with the latest version and support for high res textures, this is so awesome and has sped up my workflow a ton! Easy blending of different materials as well! Definitely worth the price!

    Great time saving piece of software. Unfortunately the new version requires you to download the materials library from the manufacturers servers. This is painfully slow. I think it would possibly be faster if it was a single zip file that you could download in your browser instead of downloading each individual file within Blender.

    I'm genuinely surprised by the painfully slow download. If you need speed, this addon is not it.

    Great addon. It helped me a lot. Probably one of the best Addons for Material.
    Thank you for your coming up with this... bought it in 2020, almost never used it... now I got the update.... dived into it and must say it is worth it.
