    "Finally found a software like this."

    January 11, 2014  |   By rsx1212

    Version: NetLimiter 1.3

    Pros

    You get to control your download and upload speed from your personal computer.

    Cons

    None, so far.

    Summary

    I downloaded my copy directly from their website. I've been looking for an application like this one forever. No need to configure my home router. I just install this program on all computers and Wha la.

    I'm not very software-tech savvy. There were a few "click okay to install" popups at installation. They weren't ads but I was sure exactly what they were either.

    "False Advertising - Blocks Nothing Unless You pay"

    January 31, 2013  |   By Dansum74

    Version: NetLimiter 1.3

    Pros

    Perhaps the name of the program?

    Cons

    The free limited version is not very useful at all. In reading reviews, you are led to believe that buying the program gives you extras. However, one needs to buy the program to actually block anything. Too much limited functionality. Therefore, thumbs down.

    "Limits downloads"

    November 29, 2012  |   By Johnnnnni

    Version: NetLimiter 1.3

    Pros

    I limit steam to 300 kbps to stop it from hogging my entire bandwidth and having other people complain nothing works.

    Cons

    Sometimes doesn't boot... not very often but happens 1 out of 30 times for no apparent reason.

    Summary

    If you need to reserve bandwidth and some program in particular is hogging all of it, you can enable this on a client basis to improve performance.

    "Absolute Junk"

    February 5, 2011  |   By gdenne

    Version: NetLimiter 1.3

    Pros

    Couldn't install this software as it froze at 75% on several installs.

    Cons

    This ruins your system. Beware...if you attempt to install this, make sure you're using a test system or have a backup/system restore.

    Summary

    This software would not even install - froze at 75% trying to install it twice. Locked up my system and I had to reboot to recover, as the network lost connection via this installation routine.

    "Blue screened twice in 2 days"

    October 22, 2009  |   By richardmcgrath

    Version: NetLimiter 1.3

    Pros

    Nice user interface.

    Cons

    I installed Netlimiter, and within 2 days, Windows (Vista) had blue-screened twice (which is very unusual for my PC. It is normally quite stable).

    Browsing speed was also significantly reduced. It took at least twice as long to download web pages.

    Summary

    I would buy the product if it a) didn't crash and b) didn't impact system performance.
