    "Loaded with Malware"

    October 8, 2013  |   By inmyopinion

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    it made some sort of file (see cons)

    Cons

    Cant trust the file it made as I discovered so much malware it downloaded WITHOUT ASKING ME. It even changed the homepage on my browser. I cant believe CNET allowed this program. Guess I cant trust CNET after all.

    "Small download, fast process, no complaints"

    July 3, 2013  |   By skaizun

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    Small download and computer footprint; fast processing; simple user interface; no Windows installation/registry required.

    Cons

    Absolutely none.

    Summary

    The less than 1 meg download onto my Vista box is a zip file containing 2 files: One for iTunes, and one for the featured Merge MP3 program. I used only the latter.

    After downloading, I ran it from the zip file (i.e., no installation required), and a simple Explorer-style window appeared. I selected 15 MP3 files from my desired folder, then selected all of them using ctrl-A in the program's window, then merged them to that same folder. Although I could have manually sorted the files by using the up/down arrows, which the program provides, the given order was fine.

    The entire process from my manual entry to its execution to exporting the list (an optional step) took less than one minute! I barely had a chance to start my stop watch! When I played the resulting file (which was only slightly larger than the combined 15 files in my folder), I was surprised at how seamless it was, with no discernible breaks (to be fair, I randomly selected spots in my computer's MP3 player program, so, although it's possible that something, somewhere within the merged file is amiss, I seriously doubt it).

    Per the other comments, I used the "direct download" to avoid the additional, optional, software that Cnet provides by clicking the "Download" box. It is unfair to refer to those programs as "malware", since they are benign and optional, and have nothing to do with Merge MP3.

    I heartily recommend this software.

    "Shame on you, CNET. Rife with malware."

    July 1, 2013  |   By taostrader

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    Didn't get that far...

    Cons

    Installed this to find out it wouldn't do what I wanted, then spent 45 minutes getting the unrequested software changes out of my system.

    Summary

    Don't download this software. How do I give it 0 stars?

    "Full of Malware"

    June 22, 2013  |   By Beartooth1

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    It works but . . .

    Cons

    It installs all kinds of malware. Backup Software that constently displays a nag to backup, Replaces your homepage, Replaces your search engine, Loads software for ASPCA. I declined ALL software offers but it still downloaded everything. If you delete ethese "options" the program disappears.

    Summary



    Updated on Jul 2, 2013

    After additional research it appears all of the malware that was loaded was from the download made using the CNET Installer. After I removed all of the malware and restored the computer to last good restoree point, I downloaded the product again using the Direct Download Link the program installed without any of the malware.

    The product works as advertised and deserves a least a 4 star rating.

    "Works great, no installation required, fast and easy."

    May 9, 2013  |   By Spike Toronto

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    Ignore all the bogus bad reviews. I don't know who's writing them or why, by there is absolutely NO malware included in this tiny utility. Easily merges a whole bunch of MP3 files into one, with no loss of quality. Interface is pretty simple, not too hard to figure out. Can quickly export into a single MP3, AND it can also create an M4B audiobook using the included "iTunesCoder.exe" plus iTunes. (NOTE: the iTunesCodes.exe application does NOT require any installation either.) That kind of encoding is a lot slower, of course, and you have to adjust your iTunes settings to control the conversion properties (bitrate, etc).

    Includes a built-in MP3 player so you can verify the correct ordering of your files.

    Cons

    Most headers seem intact, but the album cover icon was not included in my first test, but I hadn't read the instructions on the publisher's website yet, so that was my fault.

    The preferences are very short, but unless you already understand what "raw stream mode" and "VBR frame" means, it's hard to know what to do with them. Must consult the help file, I guess, but who wants to do that?

    Summary

    Those who wrote the negative reviews might have clicked the big green button at the top of this page: "Install Now (CNET Installer Enabled)". I didn't. Because I have a free CNET account, I get a separate link just below that button which says "Direct Download Link". Using THAT link means I bypass the CNET installation managing software, which I find more annoying than helpful. You can also get the original app in a simple zip file directly from the publisher's website at www dot shchuka dot com.

    "Do Not Download"

    February 9, 2013  |   By WKGasst

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    Not one darn thing

    Cons

    Came with a myriad of extra crap that installed extra toolbars on browsers and caused by antivirus program to work overtime protecting my computer from threats.

    "Works as advertised. Simply wonderful!"

    January 17, 2013  |   By sneakygreenthing

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    I merged 12 mp3 audiobook files @ 232mb and the program took 5 seconds. The output file was a little smaller than the sum of the source :) It's one file for the actual program and another file to make iTunes audiobooks. MP3Merge did access the internet looking for an updated version. My firewall blocked it, but you can disable that under preferences. Drag n drop with a very clean looking interface.

    Cons

    __________

    Summary

    Great program at a great price! It's one of those nice little freeware programs you unzip and double-click the program file to run.

    "Waste of time because it doesn't work!"

    December 31, 2012  |   By Irishgirlnc

    Version: Merge MP3 0.1n

    Pros

    None none none

    Cons

    IT DOESN'T WORK! I just wanted to merge two MP3 files...one that is 24KB and one that is 93KB. I get a file that's 115KB, but only has the sound of the first MP3 file. Pathetic.
