    "pretty good"

    February 18, 2009  |   By iruka*

    Pros

    simple interface, finds things good, a lot of options

    Cons

    a bit slow at times, tagging

    Summary

    Overall, it's pretty good and does what it's supposed to do.

    I find everything I need and I can also monitor the folders or files I want in my library or share with others. You can also see all the details of the file transfers when you go to advanced tools, so that's pretty good.

    My own personal gripe with this was that I couldn't edit more than one file at a time, but it wasn't too bad.

    As for downloading time, it wasn't too slow nor was it really fast. But because it does a lot of work while searching or downloading, my computer did slow down, but it was for a few seconds.

    If the viruses are a problem, then you can get some free anti virus programs. There's a lot around here that work really well ^^
