    "Still the best Hex Editor made, by a long shot"

    July 31, 2013  |   By MMOSimca

    Version: HxD Hex Editor 1.7.7

    Pros

    Free!
    Incredibly fast speed, even when the files being read are massive.
    Search functionality is excellent - it supports a large amount of different search options and can even find if the thing you're searching for was written -backwards-.

    Cons

    Hasn't been updated in several years.
    Would be nice if it had a built in hex-decimal-binary calculator.

    "This Hex editor did everything exactly as advertised."

    May 11, 2012  |   By lmckirahan

    Version: HxD Hex Editor 1.7.7

    Pros

    When you need to see ansii characters and only the hex is available, an editor like "HxD Hex Editor" has everything you need in a very user friendly package.

    Cons

    Not one thing would I change in this editor.

    Summary

    Top of the line. The fact is that CNET,,(the most trusted name I believe, in shareware and freeware downloads), proved once again how valuable they are to us all.

    "Simply the best for free low-level editing"

    April 14, 2012  |   By tallmabey

    Version: HxD Hex Editor 1.7.7

    Pros

    HxD is awesome! I can't count the number of times I've needed to view or edit a file or disk at the binary level, and every time I've been able to rely on HxD to get the job done. Granted, this isn't a program for which a lot of people will have a need, but for those of us that work with software at a lower level, it's SO nice to be able to turn to HxD and know you'll be able to do what you need to.

    I love being able to change the column width and the encoding so easily, and even though I haven't yet had a use to open sections of RAM with HxD, I've got to admit that it's an impressive feature.

    Cons

    None. 100% reliable in my experience.

    Summary

    One example where HxD saved me was when I needed to fix the master boot record of my new MacBook Pro about a year ago (still having buyers remorse over that...) because I was setting it up to do triple booting, and I was able to calculate the partition entries and enter them directly into the boot sector using HxD.

    Like I said earlier, where HxD really shines is when working on tasks that a relatively small percentage of computer users will ever even attempt. But because of its solid performance and low memory usage, it's a tool I always make sure to install on every new build of Windows that I install for myself.

    "Hex Editor was easy to download and install"

    January 31, 2012  |   By lmayojr

    Version: HxD Hex Editor 1.7.7

    Pros

    I was able to repair 2 hard drives that were invalid.

    Cons

    I'm new at editing hard drive code and was'nt shure what to do, but after a few internet searches I found some instruction on what lines to edit.
    Its a good program I need more study perhaps (Hex Editing for Dummies)
