"It works, it's fast, it uses litle memory"

November 20, 2013  |  By gardoglee

 |  Version: Large Text File Viewer 4.1

Pros

It works on large files (at least up to 5GB)
It's very fast (5GB file opened within 6 seconds on Dell E6410)
It uses little memory (15MB with 5GB file opened)

Cons

None that I can think of

Summary

This did what several other utilities could not, quickly, accurately with little memory constraint. 'Nuff said!

"Opened a 4 gig log file inside of 2 minutes!"

June 07, 2010  |  By buddyb129

 |  Version: Large Text File Viewer 4.1

Pros

Opened a 4 gig log file immediately. Had the entire file available to me (20 mil lines) inside of 2 minutes. TextPad wouldn't touch it. Notepad++ thought about it, Notepad?..forget it. Does search well and I like the split screen option too.

Cons

Not real intuitive for beginners and the inexperienced and no installation - just an .ini and and .exe but that's all you need anyway. Like the previous reviewer said, "But then again, why would an inexperienced user need it?"

Summary

Very helpful in reading large log files. I highly recommend it!

"Great tool for large text files"

January 21, 2010  |  By jlechem

 |  Version: Large Text File Viewer 4.1

Pros

Small, fast, and does what it says. I need to open large files (>200MB) routinely and this tool does the job.

Cons

Complex, not for the average user.
No installer package, just a zip file
You have to set a background image, I would like this to be blank on startup.

Summary

Good tool, but not for beginners.

"Came in handy at the time I needed it Free but powerful"

April 29, 2009  |  By aeciolemos

 |  Version: Large Text File Viewer 4.1

Pros

Lightweight, no install, no frills, good interface and a touch of humor

Cons

Screens are a bit complex for inexperienced users. But then again, why would an inexperienced user need it?

Summary

I needed to open a 1GB text file. This program saved me valuable time and possibly money. It is a free program, but don't let that dissuade you. It is a powerful program that can read large files and page through them with ease. The search feature is fast and keeps you entertained during long searches with different animated characters each time. All in all, 4.5 stars in my opinion.
