    "go back to 9.4 and start over"

    February 10, 2011  |   By bobrcv

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    No Pros that I can put my finger on.

    Cons

    Looks like inexpensive software, 9 looks clean and sharp. Slow startup. *If you have net applications that call Adobe Reader using System.Diagnostics.Process.Start to print PDF, Reader processes just back up in task list and must be killed manually.

    Summary

    Stay on 9 as long as you can, don't install X until they work the bugs out.

    "Awful, Avoid if you can"

    February 10, 2011  |   By DemonSailor

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    None. Worse than earlier versions in every respect

    Cons

    Same things as others have reported. Numerous bugs on my Windows 7 X64 PC. Also extremely unresponsive when resizing/moving windows.

    Summary

    Stay on Adobe 9 if you possibly can. X is broken. I thought my PC was developing faults until I found what so many others have had to say.

    Updated on Feb 10, 2011

    OK, Since posting my annoyance I've updated to the current release, and the problems that I can test for immediately seem to have gone away. On that basis I'd uprate the product to 2* (including the penalty for the waste of my time by the Beta version that was shipping to begin with)

    "Unusable, Tried Both 10 and 10.1"

    February 10, 2011  |   By ABQResident

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    None. It won't work.

    Cons

    Screen freezes up and I have to manually terminate application. Won't work on Windows XP SP-3. I uninstalled X and reinstalled 9.4, and now everything works perfectly again.

    Summary

    I would avoid this, especially if you still use Windows XP. There has to be something going on at Adobe that is not being acknowledged about Version X.

    "If it ain't broke, fix it 'till it is!"

    February 8, 2011  |   By WGPhaneuf

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    Why bother

    Cons

    I just don't like it.

    Summary

    (1) The "Save as" button was removed from the toolbar. (2) "Save as" cannot remember the previous destination, but always reverts to some wierd temporary folder. To me, this is critical. (3) The little toolbar at the bottom usually takes forever to save a file. I have reverted to Reader 9.4 on all of my computers. Maybe version "XX".

    "Annoying and inconvenient"

    February 4, 2011  |   By pavel168

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    None so far.

    Cons

    Browser plug-in is a nightmare, does not work properly most of the time, saving a file is next to impossible, page numbers are not visible at all times.

    Summary

    Horrible. What happened to the browser plug-in? Who came up with the idea of showing the page number as a pop-up (that does not pop up when you need it the most, and even if it does it might work or might not). What happened to Ctrl-+ and Ctrl-- for zooming? If you right-click and choose to show the toolbar, it might appear... or might not. Saving a file to your computer is next to impossible. Tested in both Chrome and Firefox. Back to the drawing board. Adobe Reader is steadily going down since version 6 or so... I wonder if Reader X still does not work with Xerox printers?

    "A Big Step Backward"

    February 1, 2011  |   By garyknight

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    None. It doesn't work.

    Cons

    This is a shameful new version since it doesn't work on Windows 7. Version 9.4 worked flawlessly.

    Summary

    Stick with Version 9.4. Version X is a bust.

    "Wait till they fix the bugs"

    January 31, 2011  |   By rderuiter

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    Very nice to be able to insert highlighting and comments!

    Cons

    Some PDFs take a very, very long time to load, and show "not responding" in Win7, until it finishes loading.

    Summary

    Version 10, while promising, is unusable at this time because of extreme lag in displaying some PDFs. I look forward to trying it out again, once they get that bug fixed. In the meantime, I'm back to version 9.4.1.

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    Zilch, nada zippo- JUNK

    Cons

    EVERYTHING !

    Summary

    How much did Adobe pay you to give 5 stars Cnet? This is the biggest piece of garbage I've ever seen, you should be ashamed for giving it 5 starts !

    "Adobe Reader X is very slow."

    January 29, 2011  |   By Hozeman

    Version: Adobe Reader X 10.0

    Pros

    Has several more features (that I probably wont use)

    Cons

    Extremely slow to load, Print spooler is v e r y s l o w. Takes up so much CPU, cant do anything else until printing is done.

    Summary

    I want to go back to 9.
