    Pros

    Great functionality and features, very fast, easy to use.

    Cons

    Kinda expensive

    Summary

    You couldn't find a better duplicate finder. I got this program as part of a special deal, so I didn't pay the full price.

    "Good program that works"

    April 16, 2014  |   By Snuree

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.5.0.269

    Pros

    Quick, lots of scan options, finds all duplicates

    Cons

    Installer file size is a bit large

    Summary

    A solid product that does a really good job finding all types of duplicate files. I used it mainly for duplicate songs and videos and freed up a lot of disk space. No idea what JakeNM is talking about. Sounds like he never installed the program.

    "775kb program, 16MB download"

    March 31, 2014  |   By PoiRan

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 2.4.1

    Pros

    Did not test it.

    Cons

    16MB download?

    Summary

    Why the huge download for a small program? I deleted it promptly as I don't want any spy- or spamware installed. I also don't want to install installers that later download the actual program I want - not safe if site hacked.

    "A Decent Program, Very Poorly Marketed."

    December 5, 2013  |   By Chris_Sharp_cnet

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.5.0.235

    Pros

    1. It will find all kinds of duplicate files, from Emails and contacts, to Videos.
    2. It has a nicely presented user interface.

    Cons

    1. The really sneaky way WebMinds go about trying to sell you this software, and several other packages.
    2. The total deal breaker of a potential web browser hijacker and removal blocker program.

    Summary

    There's nothing really wrong with Easy Duplicate Finder, and I would have been happy to purchase it. But like so many other reviewers, I was totally put off by the sneaky con-artist way that Webminds market the software. They initially make the software seem like it is free, so you install it, avoiding the usual damn crapware toolbars and 'free virus scans' that the installer wants to run.
    Once on your machine, you can scan your drives. But it's after the software finds duplicates, that WebMinds reveal the start of the 'con'. The free version will only allow you to delete the first 10 duplicate groups. If your scan picked up more than that, you are screwed.
    I actually liked the look of the program, so I progressed to the 'Upgrade' stage. This takes you to the WebMinds homepage, and the point where 99.9% of other companies would show you the cost of the full license. But not WebMinds. They insist that you must register your Email with them before giving you a price. I have several throw away Email addresses, so I registered, and it was at this stage that it finally sank in that WebMinds is a company I really don't want to be giving money to. Because it is here that they reveal the cost of Easy Duplicate Finder. £24 ($40). But it was the fact that several other pieces of software were pre-selected on the order page, including, oddly, a photo duplicate finder ??.
    So, Webminds, if you had simply offered a time-limited trial of Easy Duplicate Finder, minus the crapware. Followed by a simple, transparent full license price, then you would have another happy customer. But the sneaky, convoluted way you try to push this software, has actually achieved nothing more than deletion from my machine, a complaint to CNET, a written complaint to the Advertising Standards Agency, and yet another reviewer who will advise anyone that will listen to turn and walk away from any software you sell. Because your software may be superb? But you come across as utter sharks.

    "CON ARTISTS!!"

    November 30, 2013  |   By VD-Harrington

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.5.0.235

    Pros

    Slow, so I assume it's working extra hard to find duplicates.

    Cons

    Installs bloatware, very slow, expensive.

    Summary

    After taking forever to scan, they offer you a "deal" at $40. This is the most expensive pile of junk I have used. I bought a $2 software that did the trick DUPLICATEFILEFINDER which worked much better. STAY AWAY FROM EASY DUPLICATE FINDER!!!

    "Installs extra crap + forces to use the paid version"

    November 17, 2013  |   By bitnbyte

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.5.0.235

    Pros

    Never tried

    Cons

    Installs extra crap if you don't untick several checkboxes on installation. Forces to use the paid version.

    Summary

    Removed it as soon as it had asked to purchase the paid version on the first run.

    "Junk software -- clunk, buggy, and INCREDIBLY SLOW!!!"

    November 13, 2013  |   By JHog1978

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.5.0.235

    Pros

    Not a single one!

    Cons

    Too many to list.

    Summary

    After struggling with this painfully slow software for three days, I ditched it (money down the drain) and bought Gemini Duplicate Finder. thousands of times faster, easier to use, and functional. Don't waste your time on Easy (HA!) Duplicate Finder !!!
