    "Good for tracking my data usage."

    June 1, 2012  |   By bubbylz

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    Accurate and easily shown usage of internet data for the month/week/day. Customisable!

    Cons

    I found that it cut off my internet after random periods of time usage. Which is only fixed be restarting computer. Once I uninstalled the program I had no more trouble with the internet stopping.

    "Not yet fully developed for non-experimetal use."

    October 16, 2010  |   By peterlonz

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    I liked almost nothing but I was reluctant to spend time investigating.

    Cons

    I found it non-intuitive to use & quickly became short tempered with not being able to get it to perform.
    This program is poor at this stage of development & I would not recommend it to anyone.
    I quite quickly un-installed.

    Summary

    Experience was frustrating & time wasting this product is not yet fit for deployment

    "Simple, Effective, and Accurate"

    June 27, 2010  |   By ARRC

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    I like the availability of the many skins available for this app. The display I selected was small, transparent, easy to configure, and accurate in its data collection.

    Cons

    Would like to see more log options like in BitMeter. The default skin can take up a lot of screen space and is hard to read. Would like to see a stopwatch feature added.

    Summary

    A very capable BW monitor which does what a good logging device should do. Could benefit from a few enhancements. The initial download required an update to a more recent version which added a tool for downloading and installing skins (themes).

    "Lot of bugs"

    April 15, 2010  |   By cdebel2005

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    None: unable to run it!

    Cons

    It doesn't work. I get an error straight from the beginning: "DeleteFile failed; code 5. Access is denied"... and then nothing

    Summary

    When i started the application, it told me that there was a newer version, which is nice. It downloaded, installed, then started again, and screwed up again and keep telling me that there's a newer version. This app just don't work...
    oh and by the way: Yes i have admin right on my computer!

    "It's Not Complete Junk...But Close"

    April 9, 2010  |   By weedspay

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    I couldn't find any compared to what's available in the freeware marketplace

    Cons

    Lousy GUI. Odd graph.

    Summary

    This just isn't a real good piece of software and it's ugly. If you're looking for a good bandwidth monitor with logging capabilities, I suggest you look into Net Meter, also available via CNET.

    "Easy to use"

    August 10, 2009  |   By MRichmondSA

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    Bandwidth monitor is easy to set up and the logs seem to keep an accurate record.

    Cons

    The graphs do take some time to understand and you do have to customize them to be useful.

    Summary

    If you need to keep track of how much bandwidth you are using this software will do exactly that.

    "Does all it claims, and does it well"

    June 18, 2009  |   By prateekmi2

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    Easy, uncluttered GUI
    Detailed Reports
    Highly Customizable

    Cons

    Somehow the traffic reports were not accurate, it showed much more downloads and uploads than the actual value sometimes. Cross checked with other programs and they worked fine.

    Summary

    Nice piece of software to keep a tab on your connection speeds and daily downloads. Must have.

    "When you know how to use it, it's the best there is."

    May 14, 2009  |   By HyraxX

    Version: Bandwidth Monitor 2

    Pros

    Very Powerful. Can track your usage by the hour, day, week, month ,year. Keeps logs.

    Cons

    Only formats the bandwith by GB and TB for most of the usage tracking. I don't use internet that much to see that I used .543 GB this month.

    GUI is confusing. The default for customizing the color of the text output is the same color of app

    Summary

    It's worth to give it a chance.
