    "Horrible crap"

    August 09, 2011   |   By go_boink_yourself

    Version: Hex Edit 3.4

    Pros

    none what so ever

    Cons

    Installs a browser search bar, without any notice outside of the fine print in the EULA

    Summary

    Avoid like a virus, which it essentially is

    "Lovely to use with many advanced features"

    August 04, 2009   |   By CamAndDi

    Version: Hex Edit 3.4

    Pros

    I don't use it much but it does what I want painlessly. I used WinHex and others before and could not work out how to use them even after reading the help. With HexEdit it just works but on the few times I have needed to use the help it was there.

    Cons

    Not much wrong that I can think of. Some of the advanced features like templates I could not understand.

    Summary

    HexEdit is easy to use. It also has lots of neat features. Some of the "advanced" features are very easy to use (e.g. highlighter). There are lots of cool (and useful!) ideas that I have not seen in other hexeditors.

    "Always ahead of the others"

    July 17, 2009   |   By rharridg

    Version: Hex Edit 3.4

    Pros

    All basic functions are done competently (as good or better than the others). Handles anything I throw at it (huge MPEG files ...) Has really useful stuff that others don't (and I have tried them all) like help, templates, properties, ...

    Cons

    Needs find and replace in files

    Summary

    I use HexEdit in my work daily. I regularly try other hex editors and (depite the hype and propaganda you may see here and elsewhere) there is nothing to compare with it. They regularly come up with features that are innovative and useful.

    "Slow and lower function than expected"

    July 04, 2009   |   By im2020

    Version: Hex Edit 3.4

    Pros

    No plusses compared to HxD Hex Editor

    Cons

    Had hoped that the advertised macro/control features would make this a better bet for me than HxD Hex Editor but these features were too limited. Meanwhile, simple searches of a USB-attached HDD were only half the speed of HxD..
