Adobe Reader X

CNET Editors' review

The new version of this indispensable product doesn't introduce revolutionary changes, but it doesn't have to. As the low-end PDF reader, it simply keeps up with Acrobat Professional and Standard. This release adds the ability to play back embedded multimedia files in MP3, QuickTime, Macromedia Flash, Real, and Windows Media formats, as well as to submit Adobe PDF forms. It also replaces some of the icons in the default interface with optional, dockable toolbars. You might as well install this now before a Web site you visit prompts you to download it, because you'll need it.

    "POS DO NOT USE"

    October 27, 2011  |   By whirty

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    None - complete garbage

    Cons

    This is a downgrade from Adobe Reader 9.4.
    Mind numbing slow.
    Does not open many PDFs
    E-mailing a PDF is now a chore.

    Summary

    Adobe needs to scrap this version and go back to version 9, improving that. This is one of the worst "upgrades" I have ever seen. Someone within Adobe should be canned for this (and I'm not pointing the finger at low level coders). The work of an empty suit, no doubt.

    "ADOBE READER X IS SUPER SLOW TO LOAD! Bad CNET review!!"

    February 17, 2011  |   By GaelicSpawn

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    Yeah, it has more bells and whistles.

    Cons

    Extra components make each pdf EXTREMELY SLOW TO LOAD!!! Not worth the extra components!!!

    Summary

    I don't care that there's a few more gadgets added. They completely take away from main purpose of the softward... AS A READER!!!!! I don't care if I can highlight text!!! I just want to be able to open simple PDFs without each one taking 4-5 seconds to open (previous versions open the same PDFs in less than a second). This sounds like a small thing, to wait 4-5 seconds, but that's not the case when you use Adobe Reader for office applications, when you're having to look at a hundred PDFs per day. The extra components make the software no longer as useful because the main purpose of the software now suffers!!!

    Adobe has completely dropped the ball with this update!!!

    "How Do I Reinstall Adobe Reader 9?"

    February 15, 2011  |   By jsahim

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    None that I see.

    Cons

    Adobe Reader X is clumsy and slow compared to v9. The search function is more cumbersome - while v9 showed you how many entries appeared in the document as you typed, X does not unless you expand the search function.

    Summary

    Stick with version 9.

    "Adobe Reader x 9.3 buggy"

    February 13, 2011  |   By Kurt Sanger

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    Sometimes works. Previous version was hanging when trying to open pdfs on the web.

    Cons

    Selecting text and pasting it into an email, or document, puts one word on each line. Terrible.

    Summary

    I'm looking for something else that will work. Don't know why they broke this product as it used to work fine prior to updates since December. Now pdfs don't open, or copy doesn't copy, and the disapearing toolbar within the page you are trying to read is a terrible idea. Why a pdf reader would ever need to update is a big question. I don't need video in pdfs, or sound duh.

    "Reader X is a gateway"

    February 12, 2011  |   By msenior7

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    None other than it looks pretty when it loads.

    Cons

    Slow, but the kicker is in the Terms of Service. If you agree, you allow third parties to use your computer as an information gateway.

    Summary

    All of a sudden Adobe sounds like BitTorrent. Buh-bye.

    "Escaped From Development Prematurely I Hope"

    February 11, 2011  |   By ttocsmij

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    none ... well, the interface now has that girly pastel color scheme that is so poopular with the Vista crowd ... is that a pro?

    Cons

    Installed McAfee anti-bugware without warning (right over my existing anti-bugware!!!), and cannot set the tool bar the way I use it.

    Summary

    This is as far as I got last night when I "upgraded" my nice 9.2 to 10 (aka "X"). Huge mistake. Now I have an extra bug-killer clogging up the system and a PDF file reader that refuses to conform to my wishes. Hopefully this is NOT the warning shot to users that Adobe plans to start ignoring anyone not in the 6-figure-and-up product range. There were concerns that once PDF became universal enough that they would get nasty. Let's hope not.
