Editors' Review

Emailing large attachments has never been easy, but this new app combines P2P tech with a clean interface to make sharing files or folders up to 1 GB a cinch.

Circumventing FTP servers, online storage and tertiary email accounts, Pando generates either a link for instant messages and web pages or emails your recipient a tiny attachment. When you click on that attachment or link, Pando connects to its server and downloads the "package," as the Pando people call the contents of your attachment. You even have 14 days to grab the "package" before it gets deleted from their server.

The uncluttered interface uses drag-and-drop browsing to prepare your package. You don't have to wait for the user to install the app: a recipient without Pando gets taken on a step-by-step set up that ends with downloading the package. Packages can be forwarded before the download or upload process is complete -- a smart feature, given varying connection speeds. (It took us only a few minutes to grab a 75 MB package.) Other useful features include support for multiple addressees, Yahoo and Outlook plug-ins that automatically Pando-ize attachments, and a record of how many times your package has been downloaded.

Easy to use, Pando could drastically change how files are transferred between small groups of people.

"WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!"

October 06, 2008  |  By Mamie727

 |  Version: Pando 2.0.0.8

Pros

Absolutely NOTHING positive.

Cons

Locks up my computer BIG TIME!

Summary

I downloaded this software and installed it twice. I am operating a Sony Vaio with Windows XP and SP2, also my computer is 80GB, plenty to run everything, and it isn't even half full.

The Pando ran fine, until I had to re-boot my computer. Once I re-booted NOTHING on my computer would work ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I restarted in safe mode, and PANDO WILL NOT UNINSTALL ON SAFE MODE. So I had to delete the "Pando downloads" folder, and re-boot another THREE TIMES in normal mode before it would let me click on the icon to get into the uninstall options in the control panel. This happened on both installs. I gave it a second chance just to be sure it was the Pando, and nothing else. IT WAS. With Pando, an inoperable computer, without Pando, back to normal. Please be aware of this. And I will definitely NEVER install or use this software again, under any circumstances.

"Simply put, PANDO stinks"

May 08, 2008  |  By 1garyallen

 |  Version: Pando 2.0.0.8

Pros

Can't tell you as I've installed it three times and it won't work.

Cons

Anything that PANDO is, I don't like. O/S is Windoz XP-Pro and PANDO simply won't run. Don't waste your time with this PANDO garbage!!!

"Sticking to Web-based file sharing"

May 06, 2008  |  By dittersdoodles

 |  Version: Pando 2.0.0.8

Pros

Not Loving Pando

Cons

With the insistance of another pando user I downloaded this and tried to use it. I was able to upload a file without any problems, but downloading became another issue. When I posted to the forums asking for help, I did get help. Once my problem was solved, an admin kept asking me questions over and over and over again, even asked me to send him the files I wasn't able to download. First off, if I was having issues downloading it, how could I send him the files? Second, why would I send someone (even an admin) I didn't know my personal images? Whenever my computer goes into screensaver mode, pando flips out and locks up my computer. My computer has suffered other strand oddities that a one month old PC shouldn't be doing, especially with 2 firewalls and not much time spent on the internet. I don't recommend pando and will continue using Filefront, where I can SEE my files and delete them when I want.
