    "Nice program, easy interface"

    August 20, 2009  |   By Skippyqsb


    Easy to use, does just what you want it to.


    Not very fast


    This program does just what you need. It's not as fast or as simplistic as RAR Frog, but RAR Frog has problems extracting larger files (larger than 1gb or more than 50 rar "bits").
    RAR Frog took less than one minute to extract a 700mb file and to extract you just right click on the main RAR file and click EXTRACT and you are done. This program took almost three times as long to extract and you had to actually enter the program to do the extraction. But this program has been able to extract both small and very large files.
    I will continue to use RAR Frog for smaller files do to the speed and simplicity, but I will use this program for all the large files that RAR Frog seems to have issues with. If this program was atleast more simplistic, even if not faster, I would have given it 5 stars. There is really not much extra you need to do when extracting a RAR file, so I do not understand why you have to go into the main program each time and tell it to do what it should already be doing.
