Editors' Review

E-mailing large attachments never has 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 either generates a link for instant messages and Web pages, or e-mails your recipient a tiny attachment. When the attachment or link is clicked, Pando connects to its server and downloads the "package," as the Pando people call your attachment's contents. Recipients even have 14 days to grab the package before it's deleted from the 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 is walked through a step-by-step setup process 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.

"Good software; not good on customer service"

December 03, 2007  |  By mpflinn

 |  Version: Pando 1.5.5.5

Pros

Does its job well. Subscribed to premium for a few months for a project I needed. But one beware...

Cons

Then when October renewal for November subscription was completed I followed directions to cancel. Sent a cancellation email as directed on November 3 and received a renewal debit notice on November 21. Sent an email and attached previous email. Response: your order is cancelled, but no return can be made. Wrote again with the relevant emails attached. Response: "Thank you for your sharing". It's not the small amount of money, it's the principle and maybe it's Digital River's fault but this is why we users get fed up with customer service.

"Good product"

May 29, 2007  |  By paulgeiger

 |  Version: Pando 1.5.5.5

Pros

Easy to use, effective, efficient.

Cons

It's almost superfluous. I seldom have need to use it. Certain friends don't want to fool with another piece of software on their PCs. I don't often have humongous (gi-normous) files to send anyway.
