NXPowerLite Desktop Edition

CNET Editors' review

Although it's easy to compress and reconfigure select Microsoft Office files with this useful utility, NXPowerLite's short 10-use demo is on the stingy side.

Still, anyone who can use Windows Explorer can use this tool. The dialog-size interface merely displays a list of files chosen to compress, a pull down menu to choose compression level, and an Optimize execution button. NXPowerLite works on Word, PowerPoint, and Excel file formats since Office 97.

The application offers five compression options from the quick Normal to the slower but more precise High Quality. Also included are a custom set of compression options and a special mode for mobile devices. Testers found each option effective and quick. The option for mobile devices helpfully compresses with 320-pixel wide screens in mind, and it reformats the files to fit the small screens. The application will also convert embedded items such as Photoshop files into much smaller formats, but it makes the embedded file impossible to edit.

NXPowerLite's ease of use somewhat offsets the 10-use trial restriction. Any user who frequently works with large Microsoft Office files should give this simple, effective application a try.

    "Very impressed"

    December 3, 2013  |   By leprechaun1989

    Version: NXPowerLite Desktop Edition 6.0.1

    Pros

    - Easy to use
    - Straightforward
    - it works!

    Cons

    None, very impressed

    Summary

    I had a 180mb pdf which we were unable to upload to our website due to server limits. A quick drag and drop with NXPowerLite reduced the file size down to a fantastic 1.8mb which was then easily uploaded to our website with minimal fuss. Very pleased!

    "Simple, easy, it works"

    November 14, 2013  |   By pauradz

    Version: NXPowerLite Desktop Edition 6.0.1

    Pros

    Really easy drag and drop - straightforward to use. Reduced a whole bunch of my Excel, Word, PDF and PPT files by an average of 33%, some up to 75%. Can't see any difference in the files when I open them.

    I'm using this to make more space on my machine, which is getting full - it's much quicker and more effective than defrag, or anything else I can think of.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons

    Summary

    It's like giving my machine a spring clean - I think this will extend the life of my laptop for another 6 months.

    November 12, 2013  |   By DasHoosh

    Version: NXPowerLite Desktop Edition 6.0.1

    Pros

    It does work

    Cons

    With modern internet connections, I don't see any reason why you want this

    Summary

    Who cares about 10MB attachments? I certainly don't.

    Version: NXPowerLite Desktop Edition 5.0.7

    Pros

    Can't find any

    Tried to compress several PDF files, and fiddled with every setting, reducing it right down to minimum, and it still told me it couldn't compress.

    Summary

    Avoid.

    "Works great and super easy to use!"

    April 20, 2011  |   By mrchun

    Version: NXPowerLite Desktop Edition 5.0

    Pros

    Works just as described! Super easy to use!

    Cons

    None except it's only a 30 day trial! Wish it was permanent freeware!

    Summary

    Installed NXPowerLite, opened it, easily found and added my PDF files (Windows Explorer type interface), hit "optimize" and presto ... 70% to 80% smaller PDF files (ie 2995 KB PDF File compressed to a 995 KB File) Opened them up and the quality is as good as original! What an awesome utility program!!

    "I couldn't do what I do without this software."

    July 25, 2010  |   By pandj1

    Version: NXPowerLite Desktop Edition 4.1.4

    Pros

    Converts embedded photographs in my MS Word reports easily and seemlessly and enables me to email them.

    Cons

    It would be great if it could convert my Word file to a PDF straight after it compresses the photos.

    Summary

    I write structural reports on buildings containing loads of embedded photographs in Microsoft Word; then I have to email them. NXPowerLite seemlessly makes it possible to email my reports with no loss of photographic definition. Without it, I would have no hope of achieving what I need to.

    "Great product, quick and efficient"

    July 20, 2010  |   By snyderc2

    Version: NXPowerLite Desktop Edition 4.1.4

    Pros

    Amazing quality, very impressed with the file quality for such a big reduction in file size.

    Cons

    Would be great if the product compressed PDF files as well.

    Summary

    I found the product easy to use and very reliable. It required no guess work as it's compatible with Outlook and other standard Microsoft applications, very convenient. The compression software allows you to choose five different compression options to suit your needs. I would highly recommend this product for it's flexibility and efficiency.
