Parallels is the big draw and retails for $79.99, so this is a good deal by itself. DEVONthink Pro + Prizmo also looks like a really good combo, and every Mac user should have iStat Menus (only $16 by itself normally, though, so it's more of a bonus). For iPhone/iOS backups (including copying music to and from, saving text messages and voicemails, and more), DiskAid can't be beat.

Thanks OP. Quick question though, if i already have VMware fusion and McAfee security, is this still worth it? I mean are the other software worth $50?

Parallels is solidly better than Fusion, although how much benefit you'll personally get depends on your use (i.e. if Fusion works fine for you, you may not see a big value migrating to Parallels—the good thing, though, is that Parallels can use Fusion virtual machines so you don't need to reinstall anything). More info on why it's better (linking you directly to the conclusion): MacTech 2013 Virtualization Benchmarks
I don't use McAfee so I can't really compare it to Mac Internet Security. I'm sure you're fine with McAffee.
I use iStat Menus and DiskAid daily, those are must-have utilities for me. Together (normally) they're $46, so getting all the other apps for $4 more than that is pretty sweet.

Thanks for the quick response. Fusion is working for me. I get McAfee free due to work. While the other software look good prizmo 2 is the only one I can find some use for, I probably going to pass on it for now.

VMware Fusion works great for me - I've been using it for at least a couple of years. I've also used Virtual Box - free and it actually works well, too. A friend of mine uses it here at our church, and it's worked great for him for about a year and a half. I had Parallels before using Fusion and Virtual Box, and it worked well for me for a couple of years. I was able to get Fusion for $9.99 in a deal a couple of years ago or I probably would have reupped Parallels.

Thanks for sharing. But I wonder whether they offers free trials about OCR add-on or other sdk just like this one?
