    "Didn't work for me"

    February 23, 2014  |   By TisSinFul

    Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

    Pros

    Wasn't able to use ... so didn't find any

    Cons

    Just kept trying to reinstall

    Summary

    This app didn't work for me. It kept re-installing every time I'd try and use it if I tried to open it with a file. If I just open it without a file the menu looked like it was lacking the features I need. Maybe it didn't install correctly.. maybe it was an ID-10-T error, but I just moved onto another app which worked great.

    February 22, 2014  |   By she11s

    Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

    Pros

    absolutely none at all!

    Cons

    i now have - for the first time - a screen riddled with popups. This is riddled with malware, bloatware. Worse thing I ever did - and now I have to clean up after it.

    "Awesome! (Need 2 more characters or can't post review)%"

    February 12, 2014  |   By matthewfunaro

    Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

    Pros

    I use Primo all the time and couldn't live without it. I'm a traveling consultant and it's not always easy to get set up with a client's printer nor do we wnat to print loads of docs anyways. Corporate on the other hand doesn't like to hand out the big software packages as standard issue. I either wait a week for my request to get processed or I download Primo.

    Between expense reports, using all types of software w/ crazy print mechanics, the one constant is converting everyting to a PDF and done.

    Cons

    I've used it so much that I'm used to it's mechanics. If I remember correctly, it took a bit to get use to it. But that's the way it is with all software.

    Summary

    It's easy, free, and such a useful tool.

    "Works like a charm."

    January 21, 2014  |   By drjohn-nola

    Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

    Pros

    Forget paper. Print anything you want to share to the pdf file.

    Cons

    I tried it on an old XP computer and it would not work unless I specified a target folder beforehand.

    "Great! I use it every day!"

    December 27, 2013  |   By KIKI556

    Version: PrimoPDF 5.1.0.2

    Pros

    Simple programme. I use it from Corel Draw. Have had no problems. In the beginning I had to tweak some of the settings so the files weren't so big etc, but it works great. I have had it installed for a few years without any issues.

    Cons

    None that I've found

    Summary

    If you are having problems with blurry text (as one poster said) adjust the settings - for print/screen etc.
