Editors' Review

+
This freeware utility verifies the integrity of a file by quickly comparing its checksum to a given one, but it lacks expected features. Akkai MD5's overly simple, easy-to-use interface makes it easy to quickly browse for files to validate. Using the program is a mere matter of copying a file's MD5 signature to the Clipboard and comparing it to Akkai MD5's generated checksum. No bells or whistles weigh down this utility. We especially like Akkai MD5's Windows shell integration--a rarity in this type of application. Bear in mind that the program checks individual files and not complete folders. We would have liked an option to save generated MD5 values into text files, but it isn't a necessity. Programmers, software developers, and Webmasters with a need to validate file integrity will want this freeware application.

"It did the job just fine."

November 10, 2007  |  By mrscience65704

 |  Version: Akkai MD5 1

Pros

It did exactly what I expected: reported the MD5 sum of the program I downloaded, which compared exactly to the MD5 hash published by the program's author. What more could you expect?

"Lacking."

December 11, 2005  |  By D-cat

 |  Version: Akkai MD5 1

Pros

Accurately generates MD5 sum. Uninstaller works (via Add/Remove Programs).

Cons

Does NOT compare sums, as implied. Does not load or create MD5 files. Slow (Took over 30 sec to compute MD5 of 50MB file on a 4 GHz Dual Processor macine). Basically has no features. No support, web site doesn't even mention the product.
