    "THIS VERSION HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED"

    October 13, 2011   |   By Fujikid2

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    InkSaver allows you to control the amount of ink used by your inkjet printer, making your ink cartridges last longer. Using patented software algorithms, InkSaver optimizes printer data so that your printer uses less ink - even when printing at your inkjet's highest resolution.

    Cons

    No longer supported.

    Summary

    This Version of InkSaver is no longer supported. The new version of InkSaver with added support for Windows 7 (32bit and 64bit) is available on InkSaver dot com now and will be coming to download dot com soon.

    "One of the best"

    March 19, 2011   |   By Old-Navy

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    Really saves you the big bucks, especially for those super expensive ink cartridges

    Cons

    Non noted at this time

    Summary

    You can select a printout from barely visible to no savings at all. If your last name is Trump I wouldn't suggest it, for everyone else try it you'll like it.

    "works fine on XP not on windows 7 64bit"

    March 12, 2011   |   By slowrightarm

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    Good savings where you can use it (e.g. with XP) with no obvious deterioration in quality - at least at 25% setting which is what I normally use.

    Cons

    If you have any computer problems and find the need to re-install it, you must first remove all traces of inksaver and/or software imaging/ strydent by going into regedit. Simple add/remove programme tool is not enough.

    Summary

    Will probably use preton for windows 7. Software imaging are clearly not interested in developing a version for the latest windows version

    "Great but not for Windows 7"

    February 12, 2010   |   By Wideejay

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    Had used it on Windows 98 and XP and it did a great job saving ink.

    Cons

    Cannot be used on Windows 7. I wrote company and asked when it would be available, was told that there are no plans for making it work on Windows 7. I wish the less than progressive company "rots-a-ruck"!

    Summary

    I am totally amazed at the seemingly uninterested attitude of this company. I would willing pay for it again but if they won't even TRY to adapt it to Windows 7, then I am sorry but I will take my persuit for another product elsewhere.

    "Excellent product. Vista release now available."

    July 03, 2009   |   By ecography

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    InkSaver lowers the cost of printing on ink jet printers. And it?s environmentally friendly, reducing the number of ink jet cartridges that go to land fill. The quality of printing colour intensive images (such as photographs) is also improved.

    Cons

    Nothing. The Vista release was slow to come out, but it is now available.

    "Saves ink but wastes time. Reinking may be cheaper."

    October 15, 2008   |   By cheap-n-choosey

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    It was easy to install and it does what it says, as far as saving ink.

    Cons

    A test page of text, which normally takes 20 seconds on my HP DeskJet 932c, took 1:17 with Inksaver. About 4 times as long.

    At this rate a 50 page document would take less than 17 minutes in normal mode and well over an hour with InkSaver.

    Summary

    I got Inksaver in a clearance bin for $10 so I'll keep it on my machine if I am doing ink hungry jobs that have long deadlines. When I want to print a long document the same day I need it, I'll use the ink saving setting in the HP drivers.

    Considering the full price of this software you might want to weigh the cost of reinking kits versus the value of your time wating for documents to print. I can reink a black cartridge for well under $10 so for me this software is of little value.

    "Need the Vista Version!"

    August 24, 2008   |   By gatorj

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    I used this software for some time on an XP operating system. Worked as advertised. You can select the amount of ink you want to save AFTER your printer prints a scale at various levels. I was able to reduce ink usage by 20-25% with no discernible difference in print quality.

    Cons

    Vista has been out long enough for there to be a compatible version. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    "Slows the wallet drain that @#%$er printer makers designed in. "

    May 17, 2008   |   By Kendogsbarn

    Version: InkSaver 2.0.5

    Pros

    This works! There's no other way to adjust your printer's ink usage. ALL printers are DESIGNED for MAX nozzle spray.

    This utility will save you money if you currently have to buy only 2 cartridges every three months or sooner.

    Cons

    A little spendy for how simple it is. Big woop.
