    "Great but looks horrible."

    June 15, 2014  |   By iamnotatroll

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    Very fast.
    Small size and lightweight.
    Better performance than WinRaR.

    Cons

    Ugly UI.
    Lack of update.
    Lack of information while compression/extraction.
    Can't extract RAR5.

    Summary

    Awesome software but ugly UI. Change its look. Add music, video, picture, download folder on main page. Make UI and icons look good. Overall awesome file but creator needs to listen to users.

    "7Zip is fantastic!"

    April 16, 2014  |   By RadioCats

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    7Zip is very capable of opening compressed files of all types. It can even go into ISO files and extract specific files which will allow you to forgo burning the ISO to a CD just to get a file here and there. 7Zip can even open some EXEs and provide access to the resources.

    Cons

    Wish the interface was prettier, but that is not that big of a deal. A program that works reliably and as consistently as 7Zip can be as ugly as it wants to be. : -)

    Summary

    An excellent program, written very well and supported by tens of thousands of users.

    "WATCH OUT!!! Your Browsers Hi-Jacked by this FREE zip"

    April 6, 2014  |   By Martha808

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    NON unless can download it without all the UNWANTED things

    Cons

    Browser Hijacking if agree to download it!!!
    NOT user friendly instructions.

    Summary

    Try downloading from Sourceforge website. It MIGHT avoid all the UNWANTED extras!!!

    "Xcellent freeware, more capable than paid alternatives."

    March 18, 2014  |   By dannystone

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    * Best compression.
    * Much faster.
    * Attractive interface.
    * Does not nag you to buy it [Hello Windows].
    * Supports as many formats as its paid counterparts.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    Igor Pavlov is a genius. Single handedly defeated winzip n winrar. 7-Zip is excellent in every way and the price is hard to beat, FREE!!

    "Works great but don't get it from here."

    March 15, 2014  |   By alexmonte

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    It does everything as advertised. It could be better if it could pack more types of files but it does what you would likely need.

    Cons

    Nothing really wrong with it I just think it could use more functionality.

    Summary

    It does everything it was made to do but it could be better.

    "Currently the best of the bunch"

    January 18, 2014  |   By TheAlas.com

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    Very, very fast and lightweight. It supports all archive types. It's totally free for any use. Excellent and cleaver shell explorer extension.

    Cons

    Horrible main app interface. Misleading/confusing menus, incredibly ugly icons. I had seen public toilets less messy than its UI. Everything is there but in a strange fashion which only author can possibly appreciate. You won't ever be using most of its interface anyway so it's kind of OK.

    "Product is fine but don't download it here"

    January 12, 2014  |   By sneakpeekgeek

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    Good free product that handles both zip and tar files

    Cons

    The most hideous download experience I've had in years from this site...complete with crapware and attempted browser hijack. After navigating all this, installation did not complete.

    Summary

    I cleaned up and installed same program from Sourceforge with no spamware or hassles. I've used CNET since they've existed, but the amount of garbage connected with downloading this program from this site was over the top. They need to fix it.

    "Did not provide ability to create ISO files as promised"

    January 4, 2014  |   By ChrisAllen CNET

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    Intuitive UI

    Cons

    Description says app will create ISO files. That choice was nowhere to be found.

    Summary

    At first glance this appears a capable, if unremarkable, file compressor. But it omits at least one important promised format - ISO - and who knows how many others.

    "Installs browser hijack"

    December 31, 2013  |   By DESiegel60

    Version: 7-Zip 9.22 beta

    Pros

    None, because I uninstalled it at once.

    Cons

    Installs a browser hijack. Presents this as an option, and when the option is deselected installs it anyway, on all browsers in the computer. Removing it requires resetting browsers to their defaults after uninstalling the hijack program, thus losing desired add-ins and plug-ins. Cnet should refuse to carry such malware.

    Summary

    Don't download this until the hijack is certified removed.
