    "Very good product, works smoothly, accurate and free"

    March 15, 2012  |   By Jeff1431

    Pros

    Blocks alot of things which can be customised by adminstrator. Many low end websites that aren't popular are blocked. Hardly any websites go past unnoticed. Works with any browser that tries to connect to the internet. Fast, the internet speed isn't compromised.Very hard to bypass almost impossible for the average to expert user.

    Cons

    Blocking streaming content blocks popular websites like youtube which can't be a good thing in this day and age. However allowing youtube and download sites means some small percentage of adult type videos can be viewed on youtube and pornography can be downloaded.

    Did cause severe slow internet issues with Avast AntiVirus which I spent a long time solving, thanks to Phillabb. See his review to solve the compatibility issue with Avast antivirus.

    Needed to add avast to exclusions list myself on my firewall.

    Summary

    Very good, reliable and accurate product for the home. Has a lot of helpful features and not any useless comsumer junk. Easy to download and install, cannot be bypassed. Works with all interfaces/browsers that attempts to connect to the internet. Does not slow down the internet and blocking results are fast.
