"It takes time to learn to use it safely"
The song library is rich.
The sharing tool is effective.
It exposes you to P2P network of BearShare that is wide.
Updates are pretty frequent and regular.
It is free.
Legally safe to use.
It can harm your PC with malware if it is not duly protected.
The installation may affect the processing speed of your system.
Some unique songs may not be found on the network. It depends on chance indeed. If you find peers matching to your taste, it's good; else you may not enjoy it—especially for the offbeat genres.
Having no protection against malware will be risky to use BearShare. But if you are duly protected you can jump into the ocean of music right away. For me it has served for last seven months well to cater to my needs.
