    "rip off and unprofessional staff,nightmare"

    September 29, 2009  |   By paltalkripoff

    Version: Paltalk Messenger 9.1

    Pros

    video is ok, audio -ok

    Cons

    got a credit from them-cause they could not resolve a problem I had with an account..they do not respond just create tracking numbers.After the cr, refised to upgrade any account wanted money orders sent to ny - no credit cards,rude to me,insuled me

    Summary

    They rate number 1 for the worst customer service. The site is not stable and I am kicked off the site all the time. Its a joke really and I find the audio quality for the music in the rooms to be less than acceptable.. I would not recommend the site to anyone. As far as I am concerned Pal Talk is a total Rip off. and full of perverts looking for more than a friendly chat..

    "The best chat/video program out there bar none"

    May 2, 2007  |   By bhbest

    Version: Paltalk Messenger 9.1

    Pros

    Beware. Once you get on this program and start using it your life will change forever. You will strive all day just to get home and get on Pal. Lots of rooms, all sorts of people and the video quality blows the competition away. The premium membership is the best deal on the internet these days at 60 bucks a year for unlimited use. Oh and don't listen to all the idiots saying there is spyware. I am a computer software guy and it is spyware free, be rest assured.

    Cons

    I spend way too much time here and it is very addicting.

    "DONT INSTALL !!!!!!!!!!!!"

    February 26, 2007  |   By demeok

    Version: Paltalk Messenger 9.1

    Pros

    It was fun ........... HOWEVER

    Cons

    I installed this, then got annoyed with the critical number of pop-ups generated on my computer afterwards so decided to remove it. Most of it was uninstalled, however when i searched "paltalk" in my system -it found several traces that would not remove cause theyre "Write Protected". I gave up and re-installed windows

    "SPYWARE & VIOLATIONS of PRIVACY!!!"

    January 1, 2007  |   By RiCK_420_333

    Version: Paltalk Messenger 9.1

    Pros

    It has a lot of people on it, though most are foreigners, or anti-christians who want to kill everyone.

    Cons

    It has SPYWARE BTHOOK.DLL that logs all your activity on and off the net, and logs every key stroke you make including but not limited to your personal information, credit card numbers, passwords, etc.

    "Software From Hell"

    March 31, 2006  |   By mikevieira

    Version: Paltalk Messenger 9.1

    Pros

    If you have an enemy then you can convince him to download this software. It'll wreak havoc on your foes computer if it doesn't disable it first. Its filled with dialers, trojan like programs and adware from hell.

    Another advantage is if you work for an internet security office. Then this program is a must, its bundled with all the latest malaware you can find out there in the internet.

    Cons

    Everything aboout it. I don't know about the new version but from what I see it sounds like the older version. This software will slow your computer down the second you install it. Then it'll start crashing all your other programs. I had to run a few antispyware programs to remove it then decided it was best to reinstall windows. Yes it was that bad and I had no other choice but to go to that extreme. I don't know how download.com can allow something like this to walk through their doors.

    "RIP OFF , Delete this program"

    March 28, 2006  |   By chatpro

    Version: Paltalk Messenger 9.1

    Pros

    I do not like it

    Cons

    I do not like the program at all. Nothing is private, admins read your private messages, red admins ban people from the program because their friends don't like them. The audio is unstable, and cams are not free. Stay away.

    "Pal Talk"

    March 1, 2006  |   By Mrlovkim

    Version: Paltalk Messenger 9.1

    Pros

    I came for only the Opie and Anthony rooms and I have had a great time with so many others who just signed up for just to go to the Opie and Anthony fan rooms.

    Comming to pal tal I got to meet a lot of people who I will get to see outside of it and for me being an American in Holland its a place I can go to talk and see fellow Americans that I miss.

    Cons
