    "Not user-friendly"

    April 18, 2014  |   By Axia101

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.1.2010

    Pros

    Player is light, sound is very good.

    Cons

    Not intuitive at all. A nightmare to create a playlist. Impossible to make it do what you want. Cannot go back in random mode to listen to a song again because player doesn't retain position and randomizes again. Difficult to edit.

    Summary

    Annoying

    "Why is this rated high???"

    March 30, 2014  |   By sixwingsfire

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.1.2010

    Pros

    It reads a lot of file types, I guess

    Cons

    Where do I start? It's media library is worthless. Not easy to navigate and the sorting options are there but they don't work. I tried sorting by file type because I wanted to select .FAC files instead of MP3s in an album, but it just won't so I have to click each file with the mouse to select, and is there a search? I couldn't find one. The media library also freezes and crashes if you look at it wrong. Tried to burn a CD and I chose 8x speed. It proceeded to burn at 3x speed and only burned 2 songs of the 18 I had selected and then spit the ruined CD out. There's multiple other bugs that I don't have time for here. It's not intuitive AT ALL either, and I'm far from a novice with audio programs.

    Summary

    I'm still on a quest for a really good audio management/player/burner combo. So far, sadly, Windows Media Player is as good as any, even with it's many annoying problems. I recommend WinAmp or Windows over this Jet Audio though. I couldn't do basic things on here without a problem, bug or crash or just being puzzled or annoyed in some way.

    "Permission"

    March 21, 2014  |   By moische1000

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.1.2010

    Pros

    Lightweight and easy to use.

    Cons

    Something the installation is doing without asking for permission. Whatever it is was violating security policy.

    "Should have tried the free one first."

    March 21, 2014  |   By Doug Cook

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.0.17

    Pros

    None, there is little about it that I liked.

    Cons

    I bought this as part of a promotion through DFX. It was a waste of my money, I should have tried the free version first. It was a pain in the ass to work with, and I didn't see anything that was worth the hype.

    Summary

    Don't **** away your money without trying the free version first.

    "Download from a clean website, not from CNET"

    February 9, 2014  |   By as22222

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.1.2010

    Pros

    Very good software, almost perfect sound and plays whatever you throw at it.

    Cons

    Will come with malware if loaded from CNET as is the case with all downloads from such malware sites. Use a clean website like filehippo and get the player software only for installing.

    Summary

    Highly recommended but get a clean copy from a clean website like filehippo.

    "Malware Malware Malware"

    January 5, 2014  |   By bonj100

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.1.2010

    Pros

    Don't even go there

    Cons

    This product is loaded with adware and malware that is nearly impossible to get rid of once it gets on your computer. I finally got rid of it by running adware cleaner, junkware removal tool, malwarebyte and hitman in that order and several times.

    I'm not sure if there's still something left but neither my Comodo AV or Spybot found this crap. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS PROGRAM

    Summary

    This is a piece of junk loaded with malware.

    "product is great-- have been using for many years"

    January 1, 2014  |   By retrep120100

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.1.2010

    Pros

    All good --Very useful

    Cons

    downloaded jetaudio but along with it also loaded a pop up ad generator that I can't rid of and my ad blocker does not handle it..
    I didn't have it before I upgraded to current version and I am at a loss on how to get rid of it.. It is very distracting , to say the least..
    Please help.
    I want it off my system

    Summary

    As I said, Jet audio is wonderful but either you or cnet added this ad generator (Passhow)

    What ever help you can give me to get it off I would appreciate..Thank you

    "JetAudio Basic"

    November 8, 2013  |   By tryingalways

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1

    Pros

    It is the best audio/video player for free on the net
    If you are going to just listen to audio and video files for windows 7...this is the one to download...
    Manually download this program and only pic what you want other than the program itself

    Cons

    NONE AT ALL

    Summary

    It is a great player and has ways to not pay for it to get the full version pro

    "Does what it should do"

    October 28, 2013  |   By Daphon

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.0.17

    Pros

    Equalizer
    Sound quality output

    Cons

    Noob unfriendly interface/options
    Not the best video player

    Summary

    The best music player I found so far. Had trouble with the sound output of my laptop, and tried many different options and players, but so far I'd call this piece of software the solution to the problem I've been having. Great sound.
