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.

"Serious Crashes"

July 12, 2012  |  By Mike98

 |  Version: Adobe Reader X 10.1.3

Pros

Easy to install and easy to uninstall. No hidden adware.

Cons

When I opened a .pdf file on my Windows XPSP3 computer, Adobe Reader reported that there was an error occured and needs to close and my computer crashed seriously. I had to use the power on/off button and later my "check disc for errors" program reported that a system error was restored.

Summary

Above events were reason enough to uninstall Adobe Reader and to search for a replacement. I am thinking about Foxit Reader, but it has adware in it. Besides I suspect Adobe Reader from causing an error in the Internet Explorer 8, where IE8 also reported that an error has occured and needs to close. For this error I had to use Microsoft System Restore, because I could not visit any website.

"This software is no good."

June 17, 2012  |  By gapeart1

 |  Version: Adobe Reader X 10.1.3

Pros

there is easy download and installation.

Cons

the program does not execute. I have installed and reinstalled this program several times without any success.
I had to eventually reinstall adobe 9.0
With the many alternatives available, I am astonished as to why the company allow this crap shoot of an update.

Summary

unuseable

"Avoid At All Costs - Seek Alternatives Listed Below"

June 16, 2012  |  By darthvador365

 |  Version: Adobe Reader X 10.1.3

Pros

Absolutely nothing

Cons

Freezes up all the time, and crashes too

Summary

The Nitro PDF Reader and the FoxIt Readers are much better than this. Therefore, if you want to read PDFs without any freezes or crashes, then consider downloading either Nitro or FoxIt.

"Crash with a little more crash added for good measure"

April 25, 2012  |  By ZEUS_GB

 |  Version: Adobe Reader X 10.1.3

Pros

Smooth interface and installation is reasonable quick

Cons

This thing crashes like I don't know what.

I've had crashes while scrolling through PDFs and even while trying to open PDF files. It happened so often I had to uninstall and go back to version 9.

Summary

In my opinion Adobe should be embarrassed by this version. It has far worse stability than version 6 had and that's saying something!

Stick with version 8 or 9 until Adobe fix this thing!

"1/2 star is far too many"

April 19, 2012  |  By gedmage

 |  Version: Adobe Reader X 10.1.3

Pros

Program is OK, if you are into sadism

Cons

57% freezes (as above). Everything slows or will not work at all. Program was so bad I had to uninstall it and go find Adobe 8, which works just fine.
Have no idea what these people were thinking. Did they let ANYONE who did not work at Adobe try this before they released it?

Summary

Discard this POS and go get release 8 (or something else).
