Editors' review

MD5 Checksum Calculator is a bare-bones program for calculating and comparing MD5 files. While its layout leaves something to be desired, its results are fast and simple.

The program's interface is sparse, and the program offers no Help file or other instructions to guide users through its processes. Fortunately, some experimentation quickly produced a familiarity with the program's few command icons. You simply search a file tree to calculate your sum. Clicking on a specific file or program generates its MD5 sum, which is often used to check the integrity of files. MD5 Checksum Calculator can also compare two sums, though you have to enter the second set of numbers to do so, which is taxing because the MD5 numbers are long. Regardless, this program instantaneously yields its results, which was exactly what was expected of it. MD5 offers little in the form of special features, which was a bit of a disappointment. A feature for saving results and creating a reference document would have been an excellent addition. Despite its rather Spartan setup, the program performs its task well with a minimum of fuss or flair.

MD5 Checksum Calculator is freeware. It comes as a compressed file. While the layout could have been better, it produces excellent results with little effort, and we recommend it.

    "Works but pain in the butt"

    March 03, 2014

    Version: MD5 Checksum Calculator 0.0.5.58

    Pros

    Works. Works. Works.

    Cons

    It is such a pain in the butt to use that I only used it once though I could have used it far more times. It has to be in the SAME FOLDER as the UNZIPPED iso image.

    Summary

    Your review rules are a bigger pain in the butt than MD5 Checksum!

    "Easy to use"

    May 08, 2010   |   By gaylem

    Version: MD5 Checksum Calculator 0.0.5.58

    Pros

    Easy to use if one knows how to run an executable file from the download location. No program install required.

    Cons

    No cons for infrequent use

    Summary

    MP5 is new to me. I can use a command line, but wanted something simple to run on an .iso file I downloaded to a desktop folder. Also needed a quick compare with a text file containing the mp5 checksum sent from the vendor. Worked great. If I use this often will look elsewhere for more advanced capabilities.
