CNET Editors' review

Fastest P2P promises to be the fastest peer-to-peer file-sharing program available. Although we can't vouch for that, we can say that it seems to be an adequate--if not particularly impressive--piece of software.

The program's interface looks very much like an earlier version of LimeWire and is fairly intuitive. Users will want to pay attention during the installation process; the "typical installation" installs a toolbar, sets Fastestp2p as the default search engine, and makes Fastp2p.com the default home page. Using the program was very much like using other Gnutella P2P programs; it searched, it found, and we downloaded, at quick but not blazing speed. We are dubious of Fastest P2P's claims that "the items that appear in your search results will always be free of viruses and 100 percent trustworthy." That's an awfully big claim to make, and our search results definitely contained some fishy files. Anyone using any P2P software should be wary of such results--P2P networks contain the good, the bad, and the ugly--and we feel that Fastest P2P is doing its users a disservice by encouraging them to let down their guards where this is concerned. The program does not seem to have a Help file or support page on its Web site, which is never a good thing. Overall, Fastest P2P wasn't awful, but we feel that its claims of awesomeness might be a bit overblown.

Fastest P2P is free. It installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program with reservations; it works, but it's not as great as it sounds.

    "If you like FrostWire you'll like this one better"

    October 16, 2009  |   By rawdogg0880

    Version: Fastest P2P 4.8.18

    Pros

    downloaded and installed with no problems, not much adware. Search results were more plentyful, faster, and I noticed right away the filtering is much better without cutting into the good search results, like the other two big boys like to do.

    Cons

    Could not find any.

    Summary

    I have been using this one for about a month now and will keep it. It's more than good enough for me, anyone using P2P should try this one out for yourself, I really like the filtering system on this one for the search results it cuts down on the fake files you'll notice right away

    "There doesn't seem to be any real reviews here"

    September 7, 2009  |   By ownage99

    Version: Fastest P2P 4.8.18

    Pros

    I can't think of anything..

    Cons

    Trying to trick unaware customers, using false claims, pretending to be adware free, and simply mimicking limewire.

    Summary

    So tell me, how can a product that claims to do so much, have only three reviews, that basically outline what the webpage advertising for the product has?
    Why are there only three votes giving it 5/5?
    Why if it's the fastest p2p client out there, are there so few downloads, and why isn't it a higher ranked download?
    Why does this software claim and I quote - "Piratebay says that this is the FASTESTP2P file sharing program on the internet"
    Well of course the above quote is true!
    this is the FASTESTP2P file sharing program on the internet, wait - that's the name of the program isn't it?
    This program can't be found using p2p clients, which is hard to believe if it's such a "good" client?
    Truthfully, I'm not buying any of this...

    "Finally, a P2P program worth its salt!"

    March 26, 2009  |   By jimnoyz

    Version: Fastest P2P 4.8.18

    Pros

    - Fast
    - No Adware or Spyware
    - Great search results
    - Virus free
    - Plays all media files
    - No startup or membership fees

    Cons

    There are no cons to speak of, except that i didn't find this program earlier!

    Summary

    I was so sick of using peer-to-peer programs that had nothing to offer. Viruses, slow download speeds, corrupt files, limited search results? the list goes on. Every program promised the world and wound up disappointing me.

    My last peer-to-peer program, for example, had far too many advertisements. I would leave a song to download and come back to find my screen full of pop-up ads. It was annoying, and it made my computer run slow. I thought there was a problem with my computer until I deleted the program!

    ?Then I found Fastest P2P.

    Usually when I write a review I try to balance pros and cons and score it accordingly. But I really have nothing negative to say about Fastest P2P, so I?m forced to give it full marks.

    Firstly, it?s by far the easiest way to share files with other users online. People can download your files while you get great stuff for yourself ? music, movies, photos, whatever.

    Funnily enough, Fastest P2P actually lives up to its name. It is literally the fastest peer-to-peer program available. If you don?t believe me, you can try it for yourself. You will be impressed.

    While many other programs bombard you with irrelevant ads and leave your computer running at a snail?s pace, I have received no advertising as a result of using Fastest P2P. It?s 100% free of spyware and adware.

    There is always a ton of users online, so you can rely on great search results. I always find the exact file I want in no time at all. Whatever you?re looking for, it?s yours. What?s more, the files that do appear in the search results are always free of viruses.

    ?But the best part? It?s free. FREE! No membership fee, no sign up fee, no requests for a donation, nothing.

    So if you?re looking to download files with a minimum of hassle, I recommend Fastest P2P ? a great way to share online!

    Version: Fastest P2P 4.8.18

    Pros

    I like it because you don't have to pay to upgrade like the other products out there to get the fastest download speeds. It's got a super light installer and their toolbar is pretty cool too!

    Cons

    There's nothing I don't like about it. It's fantastic.
