    "Download it from aresgalaxy.sourceforge.net."

    February 24, 2014  |   By FreedomPirate

    Version: Ares Galaxy 2.2.7

    Pros

    This is NOT the real Ares I know and love. download it from their official website above.

    Very easy and effective search. Can search for and download from Ares itself without the need of using any torrent site. Best and fastest way to download any song. Also good for videos, software, etc. Nicely organized library.

    Chat channels, live T.V. feature, internet radio.

    You can play songs and videos while they are downloading to preview them. Helps avoid bad quality.

    Ares is open source software and it will always be FREE.

    Cons

    Forces you to have an ugly folder on your desktop where your downloads go. Can't put the folder anywhere else, must be in desktop.

    Summary

    Easy, fast, effective, and free. Nice extra features.

    "Ares is NOT FREE anymore"

    January 15, 2014  |   By Otistonka

    Version: Ares Galaxy 2.2.6

    Pros

    None that I could find

    Cons

    The program appears to install fine, but ALL downloads play an advertisement for purchasing the software. Don't waste your time. This recently changed and is now useless.

    Summary

    Find another program. Don't waste your time with Ares Galaxy.

    "What has happened to Ares?"

    August 21, 2013  |   By rmwoolfe27

    Version: Ares Galaxy 2.2.4

    Pros

    I used to be able to find video and audio files with little problem.

    Cons

    Now, when I do a search for anything, it seems I just get my search terms parroted back to me. To test this, I searched for nonsense words my kids made up. Sure enough, I was shown several "search results" available for download, in lengths from 3 minutes to over 2 hours.

    Summary

    I understand copyright issues. But Ares has become worse than useless to me, except as an interface for viewing/listening to old files. I can use Windows Media player for that.

    "Great Software...No So Great User Community."

    July 17, 2013  |   By Smeaga31

    Version: Ares Galaxy 2.2.4

    Pros

    The Software is really nice. It installs easily. It's Easy to set up. Probably the easiest one to set I've tried. Very easy to navigate and even a novice to filesharing clients probably wouldn't even need to read a help file. It has a nice clean interface. My favorite is the Screen Tab/Function. From here you can watch online movies, Listen to radio and more! This function Works better than some of the programs out there made specifically for this purpose.

    Cons

    For me the Chat rooms aren't very good. The majority are in Spanish and filled with porn. Hardly anybody shares files. The files that are shared are usually not very good quality and usually not labeled correctly or some other problem exist. I have very good quality shares of over 10,000 items. In two days I didn't get one person trying to upload from me. Any other client and I would have people uploading in the first five minutes of going on. What are the people doing?

    Summary

    Great software, horrible sharing community. The only reason I keep this is for the screen function. I guess for file sharing however I'll keep Soulseek. When You go to a chat room and nobody is sharing files, The user avatars are partial nudes and all females are 18 or 21 years old....what's that tell you about the community? Simply a porn hub. What a shame.

    "NOT RECOMMENDED!"

    March 30, 2012  |   By NeoOfTheSith

    Version: Ares Galaxy 2.1.8

    Pros

    Downloads can be quick and the sorted library is nice.

    Cons

    There is a lot of child porn! DO NOT DOWNLOAD VIDEOS THAT DO NOT GIVE CLEAR DESCRIPTIONS!!! If the details on the video are not specific then DO NOT DOWNLOAD. I accidentally started downloading two videos which were HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE! Thankfully I previewed the downloads before they finished and deleted them immediately!

    Summary

    It's probably best not to use this program. There are other methods of file sharing that give a clear idea of what you are downloading!

    Updated on Feb 1, 2013

    Also, I don't know if the files have been "cleaned up" since my initial review (I highly doubt it) but I still advise everybody to be EXTREMELY careful of what you download on this client.
