    "Terrible support for paid version; other serious limits"

    February 2, 2013  |   By SaipanJill

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    I love the version of this product that runs on the Dell (DellDock?) So I checked out the free, and paid, version for my Lenovo ThinkPad.

    Cons

    First, the support is practically non-existent.

    Second, I write software. I want to run my development exe with different start up values. With tabbed docks, you can group shortcuts into a folder, or group, BUT you can ONLY run 2 short-cuts that refer to the same exe!!! I often want to start 3 or more. This is a serious limitation for me.

    Summary

    I just asked for my money back (HAH!) and will move on to something else.

    "Eh.... Rocketdock is much better"

    January 16, 2013  |   By SpaceOctopus

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    I prefer Rocketdock for a lot of reasons, one is that Stardock wants to charge for most features of Objectdock. The only reason I use Objectdock is because I like the tiles feature and there's a cool steampunk theme out there for it.

    Cons

    See above.

    Summary

    Use Rocketdock. Trust me, you'll be happier.

    "it works well enough but"

    December 12, 2012  |   By stephendufton

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    it works well enough

    Cons

    Rather garish icons which would probably suit someone under 10 years old. There is not really enough functionality in the free version to make the use of this worthwhile

    "neat enough"

    December 12, 2012  |   By Edsstyleart

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    Makes it easier to locate items you use on a regular basis.

    Cons

    A bit "in your face" on d/top

    Summary

    Not a bad gimmick, but find the "ballooning" feature a little irritaing.

    "Very nice and Works in Windows 8"

    November 20, 2012  |   By dlauber

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    Provides a productivity-enhancing bar onto which you can place icons for loads of programs. Can set it to disappear like the task bar can do. Set up is easier in the new version. I've seen nothing to indicate that ObjectDock slows down our computers or introduces any trojans.

    Cons

    Separator bar is too wide. Not nearly as smooth as RocketDocket, but RocketDocket definitely does NOT work in Windows 8, although it works just fine in Windows 7.

    "Deceiving, said free and it was not and not Fences"

    October 28, 2012  |   By capecod4

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    Could find none.

    Cons

    The program knocked out my present Fences II and then I found out it is not free and I already paid for the original fences. Good thing I had saved the original program.

    Summary

    This is the third time I was sort of tricked by CNET to download software that I had to end up uninstalling because of the stuff that seems to come along with it I did not want or it was not as described or I had to go to a strange site to download. I have unsubscribed from CNET.

    "Too many crashes - uses too many resources"

    October 19, 2012  |   By Bugfisherman

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    Looks good works well most of time.

    Cons

    Crashes all the time for no reason.
    Uses so many resources that it slows machine down drastically at times.
    Not enough options to change the look.

    Summary

    I liked it for quite a while, but started getting the infamous crashes on Vista and other systems that so many people talk about. Couldn't fix it. It also slowed my system down drastically at times because all of the memory it uses and resources it uses. Plus, you have very few options to change colors designs etc. I am giving up on it. Too many other, better options.

    "Used to be good, now it's terrible"

    October 4, 2012  |   By zonedabone

    Version: ObjectDock 2.0

    Pros

    None. Absolutely none.

    Cons

    It loads your computer up with AVG bloat and makes it impossible to remove. It took over chrome, and even when I uninstalled it and re installed chrome it was still there. I think I've finally removed it. STAY AWAY and get a different dock.

    Summary

    Shame on you, ObjectDock.

    Don't get this. It's simply terrible.
