Editors' review

Simple and streamlined, this is a useful application--if you don't mind being pestered with pop-ups. PDF995 uses the open-source GNU Ghostscript utility to convert any document file into PDF format. During testing, we were impressed with the program's conversion speed and the quality of the converted documents. The program works seamlessly, installing a "virtual" printer for converting documents. When you want to convert, you simply choose "Print" in any application (Microsoft Word, for example) and the application converts the document. PDF995 does not allow you to configure settings to your preference, however, such as security or compression options.

Another frustrating "feature" is the two-part download that requires separate installations of the printer driver and free converter. The slew of advertisements and pop-ups also get pesky during use. As freeware, PDF995 isn't a bad choice for those who need a standard tool for PDF conversion and don't mind a bit of advertising bother.

    Not only works perfectly but works when my Adobe PDF fails.

    "Excellent product."

    Version: PDF995 Printer Driver 12.2

    Pros

    Well worth having in your tool box. Main advantage is u can create a good looking document from something plainer (eg Tax return using e-tax software but printing output to the Pdf995 pseudo-printer file) and then use Adobe pdf-reader to print this file, using the latter's options to print multiple pages to a page-side plus double-sided printing to save paper and filing space.

    Cons

    The fact that this software is in two pieces - the printer driver, plus the converter. I find this confusing, particularly when one or other needs updating - I can never remember the procedure, or how to see if I am up-to-date on both parts. (The one-page pop-up at the end is no problem, as this lets it be free software!)

    Summary

    Good - works well - no bugs - the fact of it being in 2 parts is a bit confusing (to me).
