"Great newsreader. Fast, clean and lots of features."

January 14, 2009  |  By frankidee

 |  Version: Ozum 5.0

Pros

I've tried several other newsreaders but none have been able to outperform Ozum. It is virtually trouble-free and very fast in downloading files.

Cons

This is nothing that I dislike about this newsreader. Slick and well engineered it beats all others hands-down.

Summary

I have used Ozum since 2006 and have yet to find any other newsreader that is as user-friendly and error free as this one. Customer service is outstanding whenever they are needed. Ozum 5.0 is by far a superior product and I highly recommend it.

January 13, 2009  |  By soonerdon49

 |  Version: Ozum 5.0

Pros

The ease of using it as well as the sneak peek into rar's and other formats. Everything is built into Ozum, so you don't need to buy other products in order to enjoy newsreading.

Cons

I couldn't find anything to dislike.

Summary

I would suggest this to anyone who is looking for a newsreader that is fast, economical, and most of all works. The ease of install and the ease of use has put this reader at the top of the list.

"Excellent newsreader for multimedia files and pictures."

January 11, 2009  |  By norald

 |  Version: Ozum 5.0

Pros

I like the built-in viewer for images. Furthermore I use the thumbnail gallery of downloaded images. I also like the the convenient way Ozum handles multimedia files and prepares them for viewing.

Cons

No cons at the moment.

Summary

The built in image viewer allows to proceed to the image of the next message without stepping back to the message pane. This makes the viewer comfortable.

I also like the possibility to download images with Ozum and get a rough overview of them with the built-in thumbnail gallery. For example my three year old son likes pictures of motorcycles. Unfortunately the newsgroup I have chosen contains every now and then pictures not suitable for minors, posted by some fool deliberately in the wrong newsgroup. So I can review the pictures first, delete the improper pictures and have no embarassing surprises while watching the motorcycles with my son.

Concerning video files I appreciate Ozum's capability to find the parts of a file, assemble and decode them and to prepare the file for viewing. To sneak a peek into multimedia files is also a time and bandwidth saving feature.
