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.

    "annoying application"

    August 15, 2012  |   By hpminimom2009

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.1.3

    Pros

    easy to use and install

    Cons

    Agree that Reader 8 worked the best in Windows 7 64 bit SP1

    Summary

    Should never have updated to Reader X

    "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.

    "Privacy Concerns with 7.1 of EULA"

    June 15, 2012  |   By dawsonda

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.1.3

    Pros

    Useful reader.

    Cons

    Adobe may have no control over Third Parties actions and such actions are not covered by the Adobe Privacy Policy (per 7.1 of EULA listed below).

    Summary

    7.1 Use of PDF Files.

Your Internet Protocol address ("IP Address") is sent when this happens. The party hosting the site may use technology to send (or "serve") advertising or other electronic content that appears in or near the opened PDF file. The website operator may also use JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to increase and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and to personalize advertising content.

    "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).
