    "Good but contains malware (LuckyLeap, cNet report sent)"

    October 9, 2013  |   By S_Gagne

    contains malware (LuckyLeap)

    "Very helpful and easy!"

    October 15, 2012  |   By Tapoutnc

    Version: LAN Speed Test 1.1.7

    Pros

    Just what I needed to test the throughput between my computers and NAS. File transfers were taking a while and were about 6 Mbps. This too basically let me know that my Gigabit connection between my pc and NAS over a CAT 6 was running slow... Time to check out the topology.

    Cons

    Instructions for use were not "in your face" step-by-step but I figured it out.

    Summary

    Good for peer to peet network throughput checking. Definitely not Enterprise class but great for the SMB.

    "This software is crippled"

    August 4, 2012  |   By racassel

    Version: LAN Speed Test 1.1.7

    Pros

    They do a good job tricking you into downloading it.

    Cons

    If you want to see your throughput in MBPS, you have to send them $5.00 . Or get out your calculator

    Summary

    It's a crippled version, for free! Look for something else. FastCopy will do the same thing and give you the MBPS and it is not CrIpPlEd!

    "Simple, quick and easy to use"

    April 20, 2012  |   By Eval_Evaluator

    Version: LAN Speed Test 1.1.7

    Pros

    Simple, quick and easy to use

    Cons

    With some computers in the network the wireless adaptor's write speed is much faster than it's read speed. It's odd, but according to the author, that's because of the write cache of the HD kicking-in when writing to the target network folder. However writing to the same network folder from another computer with another network adaptor does give opposite results (i.e Write speed is less than the read speed). If the HD cache was the reason for faster writes than reads, why do i get an opposite result accessing the same net folder from a different computer?. That to me tells that it's not really the HD cache causing the discrepencies but something else is wrong with either the software or the network adaptors used to test the LAN speed.

    Summary

    As it stands, the reliability of the test results are questionable, so use it at your own risk.

    "ok for simple tests."

    January 7, 2012  |   By ldecola

    Version: LAN Speed Test 1.1.7

    Pros

    it will give you a quick, easy to interpret, estimate of your LAN speed.

    Cons

    too simple if you want detailed reports. i.e. i want to know how fast i'm getting data from my ISP to the router and THEN from the router wirelessly to my laptop. the app doesn't seem to tell me that.

    "Great program but beware the other programs it installs"

    October 23, 2011  |   By bigdods

    Version: LAN Speed Test 1.1.7

    Pros

    I ran this a few times and it works really well

    Cons

    It secretly installs incredimail, a toolbar and some other programs while its running. I suddenly had icons popping up on my desktop that I didnt want. Then the incredimail installer popped up and no mater what I did it couldnt be closed or stopped.

    Took me about half an hgour to remove all the stuff it added to my PC. Doesnt look like virus or trojan as my scanner came up clean, just very very annoying

    Summary

    Find another tool
