"Works but requires extra steps to use"
1. Does what it says it will do.
Takes a few steps to use. First you need to know where the file you want to unzip is located. I had to search for the file. Winzip--which is NOT truly free-- finds the file for you. Y-Zip (64-bit) requires you to find where the file is located. Once you find exactly where the file you want to unzip is located, go back to 7-Zip and find the file. Click the file then 7-Zip does the rest. People who do not understand how to find where their files are located on their computers may have trouble using 7-Zip. That is what all that "GUI" and "Interface" stuff is talking about in other reviews.
7-Zip unzips files very well and in my case, very quickly using Windows 7. You may have to use some old computer skills or learn some new computer skills to send 7-Zip into action. 7-Zip is not one of those "Plug and Play" software that we are spoiled with these days. You will have to think to use 7-Zip...or just pay $30 to another company so you do not have to think. I gave 7-Zip 5 stars because it did what it was supposed to do, did it well, and did it free. If they charged for it I would downgrade it to 3 stars because of the extra steps I had to take to use it.
