Why Did the Puritan Hard Drive Cost So Much?

I was under the impression three years ago that the Puritan Hard Drive was to be put out on a 90 Cd collection. I was under the impression that there was a mega-super-sale going on. Still Waters Revival Books or SWRB made everyone believe, (via their web site), that there was utmost urgency in buying the 90 Cd collection in a prepublication sell. They proclaimed that unless someone bought it then, that they would have to spend a 1000 or more dollars in order to get it later on.

Lo and behold they decided to put it to hard drive instead of on the 90 Cd collection. After this announcement there was surely more urgency to purchase this product, else one would have to pay a huge amount to obtain this product. Get it now in the pre-publication sell or you are sure to pay $1000 or $1500 or who knows how much once we get this collection together.

I rushed to my phone because certainly I wanted the best study software available, that money could buy, at the lower discount price. I was in joy that I was getting such a deal. I waited for this product with anticipation. Email after email promised that my product would be searchable and that I could install the program on any computer that I so desired. Their emails also promised that my product would have instructional videos on it, in order to use this product with ease.

I entered into agreement with SWRB and began to pay $30.00 a month. I paid for two years on this product and ended up paying $895.00. Upon getting this product paid off, I quit receiving updates. No matter how much I would contact them, I would get no weekly updates. Almost 7 months passed and I contacted John Hendryx at Monergism.com. He told me that the product began shipping a week ago. (This was in September 2010)

Several weeks later I received my hard drive. I was so excited. I plugged it to my primary computer and downloaded it. My excitement was short lived. To this day their software will not run on my hard drive.

I have recently visited Sermonaudio.com and on their web site I find that the hard drive only cost $347.97. I am thinking, “What’s up with this?” I was led to believe that if I did not purchase this product, when I did that I would have to pay a thousand or more dollars for it. Now I find out it actually is less than half of what I gave for it.

The only thing I can conclude is that I paid their software engineer to develop software that I cannot even use. SWRB has a lot to stand before God and give account of. They will have to give account for why they lead multitudes into believing a bunch of lies.
