"not bad at first but outdated"

April 02, 2007  |  By pjbrooks

 |  Version: Direct Connect 2.20

Pros

This was a pretty good program for finding rare files, but now I can find more stuff through BitTorrent and file hosting sites.

Cons

The main problem with this is that you can only download a file from one peer. So you can't get faster speeds if more people have the same file. Also, if the person leaves mid-download, you'll never be able to finish it unless you're both on at the same time again.

"For NERDS & GEEKS only!!!"

March 17, 2005  |  By Christoferpea

 |  Version: Direct Connect 2.20

Pros

Good for finding rare & hard-to-find files.

Cons

Too Cliquish.. You have to have a MINIMUM of 100 gigs of shared files on some portals.. I have 8 gigs of QUALITY files.. but because I don't keep JUNK on my hard drive to inflate my stats, I cannot get into a lot of portals. TOO MANY RULES!!!

"No hassles? Hah yeah right!"

March 08, 2005  |  By -fibreoptic-

 |  Version: Direct Connect 2.20

Cons

This program is supposed to be hassle free and maybe the software is hassle free but the hubs are pitiful. I only found 2 hubs that remotely interested me and upon entering the hubs i was bombarded by about 50 strict rules which would end up getting me kicked or banned! I think breathing was against one rule. Some people must lead very little sad lives in the real world and when they get some authority on the net and they go on a sad little virtual power trip. Even when i was connected to this hub i found sweet FA i wanted. SOULSEEK is VASTLY superior and most of all, truly hassle free.

"slightly above average file sharing program, but with ad banner"

December 22, 2004  |  By silentghost

 |  Version: Direct Connect 2.20

Summary

no adware or spyware, but has ad banner. best to use it as an alternative file sharing program, not your primary file sharing program

August 12, 2004

 |  Version: Direct Connect 2.20

Summary

Unlike Kazaa, you don't end up with tons of fake files. What u download is what u get. Since using I've had only 1 fake file. compare that with kazaa!

"~This program is Average~"

July 14, 2004

 |  Version: Direct Connect 2.20

Summary

I think the good thing about this program is it hasn't got any spyware like Kazaa and other sharing program (I'm not so sure though)~ the bad thing is you cannot find rare stuff like old movies or b-side single songs or songs of another language~ also, you must have 10GB or more to be able to share~ and once the person is offline you'll not be able to download the file from another person like you can in Kazaa~ this program is not international so you only can share the files with the local users, which makes it harder to find rare files~ But I still recommend this program because I'm sick of spyware~ I recommend that you first download 20GB from Kazaa and then uninstall it and install direct connect~ so you'll not need to share your whole hardware~
