"Pefect and Amazing"

January 25, 2007  |  By petert2005

 |  Version: Orb 2.00.08

Pros

Orb is amazing. Its not a total control software- you can't view your computer but you can grab certain files. It automatically sets up defaults e.g. it will put your my music folder for the music files- which means if that is your music folder you don't have to do much, if its not you can delete it and add your own. You can access it from any computer with internet (as long as the computer doesn't block it- e.g. some schools may block the site). This means you don't need to install the software on the other end. Watch your videos, listen to your music, look at your photos and access your documents. You can even stream your webcam live! And finally you can create mulitple accounts and give them certain access, so friends and family can go on.

Cons

It doesn't allow full remote control- I wan't to be able to look at my computer and do things on it- so I have to have a seperate software for it- with remote control it would be perfect. It can also be slow, so limit what you leave on your computer when you go out.

"WOW I didn't know a free program could offer so much"

January 11, 2007  |  By gvmatt

 |  Version: Orb 2.00.08

Pros

Why buy a sling box when this program does everything it does and more for free? It will stream to computers, the nintendo Wii, and smartphones.

Cons

I didn't find it sooner. It does not work with PSPs.

"Brilliant! Access media files remotely"

December 22, 2006  |  By Pnf1987

 |  Version: Orb 2.00.08

Pros

This software is awesome. You set up a small application on the computer you want to access. Then log on to the orb website and you can access media files and even documents remotely from any computer in the world. Simple and Brilliant. Great customizable portal web site. Speed is fairly good(if you have a broadband internet connection on both ends). Cool sharing feature where you can set up playlists and share them with your friends.
