    "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 7, 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.
