When it just works

It makes me work really fast but still secure for my clients. I look really professional even though what I did was only suggesting and installing Crawlera. It's awesome!

Pros

It really saves my time as a web scraping specialists. I always need rotated proxies for my client needs. I keep creating a new project and it is a lot of hassle of I have to buy proxies, renew proxies, and create proxy rotation on my own. I am glad I don't even need to think about it. It just works!

Cons

Well, it's just doesn't have enough advanced documentation on Scrapy Splash combined with Crawlera. Their development team in Github is very responsive though.

Best data extraction & automated proxy service

We chose Zyte after testing all leading proxy and data extraction solutions on the web. The service is extremely reliable, rapidly scalable and has the lowest latency amongst its peers. Support teams are extremely responsive even on weekends and we've never been let down.

Pros

- Reliable & consistent (highest uptime) - Lowest latency - Lowest resolution errors - Excellent customer support

Cons

- Pricing can be improved - IP availability in non-US locations can be improved

Reasons for choosing Zyte

- Zyte's resolution rates were the highest - Latency was significantly lower than all peers - Zyte's support was excellent - High uptime and reliability convinced us that we could depend on Zyte to sign tough SLAs

Reasons for switching to Zyte

- We weren't happy with latency - Service uptime wasn't satisfactory - Resolution rates were not satisfactory

They don't promise what they sell.

I bought a $ 349 Advanced plan to get 200 concurrent requests. In their free trial, the response times are very low - about a few seconds. After purchasing the plan instead the requests together applied a delay on purpose thus canceling the potential of concurrent requests. In fact, it's like doing about 5/6 per second. After contacting their technical support, after a week, they tell me that an upgrade is required by paying an additional cost. Obviously I requested a refund since they did not promise what was advertised and told me that it was not possible since I had used the service. Of course I had used it, otherwise how could I tell that concurrent requests weren't working properly? I absolutely do not recommend this service for making me waste about a week to find a "fake" problem they know well and for asking me for an upgrade without even offering me a courtesy refund to apologize.

Pros

Ease of installation and integration with API

Cons

They don't respect what they communicate in the service.

Relatively Easy To Use

Our company, whatoplay.com, aggregates data from multiple sources around the world. Since we started using Crawlera, we haven't really encountered big issues. Our common ones in the last 6 months is just reaching our limit, so we just had to increase our plan.

Pros

We're only using Crawlera for our data scraping needs and it has worked seamlessly since we started using it in 2016. When we had to upgrade to a higher limit, the transition was fast, and no dev time was wasted updating our existing codebase.

Cons

Pricing can be a bit tricky especially if your need is right in between the plans.

Amazing product - can't get any better for speedy data mining

Overall experience with them has been stellar, I will likely be a customer for life.

Pros

I like scalability. Sometimes we need to submit millions of requests immediately and with Scrapinghub we can really put the pedal to the metal. We rarely have downtime, and it's really allowed us to grow our company and thrive. Easy to integrate into scrapy and other python tools.

Cons

Their billing support can be moody, but the product is fantastic!!
