I have Platinum JG package myself and I am not planning on upgrading to any of the packages because very few, if any, of the books in the new packages are a must-have for me, especially at that price.

It would be ideal if I could purchase the features, without the extra books, for a reasonable price.

That said, what do you think is a fair price for the data sets and the new features?

I'd say $350.

EDIT: It looks like Logos will be offering exactly what I'm looking for in the Minimum Crossgrade for under $100... wow.. that's way less than what I was willing to pay.

That is too much, I think.  You might as well go with L5 Gold, but that depends on what base package one has. As Bob has mentioned here, the minimum crossgrade will probably include most/all of the new L5 data sets (and perhaps selected resources needed to make the data sets work) and should cost less than $100.  For the complete data sets and resources needed, I'd be willing to pay up to $140.  But less cost is always better for us.

You're absolutely right. Now that I think about it, even Silver is a great deal. Only $272.77 for the upgrade, and you get 49 of the 53 new features plus some new books too.

While I think Logos should have come out with all the price points from the get-go, I don't think they cheated anyone as many people seem to be suggesting. Most of the bashing against Logos at this point is unwarranted..

For the minimum crossgrade, I would pay anything up to around $150.

I'd be pleased as punch to pay the $350 mentioned. I'm not recommending the price point for anyone else.  Just saying what I'd pay for it. Now strangely enough, I absolutely refuse the 'upgrade'. I don't need 'Bronze' or 'Silver' and I certainly don't want all those resouces on my PC. I'm happy with what I've got.  But if they took my $350 and gave me the new L5, that be a really fine deal.

As far as I can see Logos5 really represents a major step forward, and (again) I don't see how the competitors are ever going to catch up.  The 'Sense Lexicon' (and here I'm likely showing my ignorance) really should replace the Louw Nida type of orientation and could only be done with a product like L5. Many months back I tried programming something similar just to see how hard it was to do. Lordy.

So if Bob charged me $100 for the cross-grade and another $250 for my bad attitude about Logos marketing, that'd be a fair payment.

Just to help communicate the real costs of these projects: the Bible Sense Lexicon is the product of a full-time team of 3 people with graduate-level training in biblical languages (and a good deal of my time as well), working since the beginning of the year. This is an enormously challenging task (we've still got a ways to go). I believe we've created both a solid contribution to biblical scholarship as well as a very practical help for those simply looking to unlock more of the meaning of the original text. And having it available in a digital library makes all the difference in usability over a print resource.

That is not for us to say:
The labourer (Logos) is worthy of his reward (pay) and I think Bob and his team have likely prayed hard about the charges given the state of the world economy.

I have no concerns about the upgrade price, however,like many others I am low waged at $500 approx per month, so have to prioritise between needs and niceties, am reliant on God to provide funds for upgrade, but if/when I am meant to, know that God will make a way.. plus waiting also carries upside that most of the initial bugs will be ironed out.

That was exactly my thought when I read the Bible Sense Lexicon description.
