"very great"

August 26, 2006  |  By knuzcu

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

You get 25 free listens a month, and if you are an old user like me, you should have at least 5 accounts. it used to be you didnt have to confirm your email and you could sit there for an hour making accounts. so with 5 accounts like me, you get 125 music listens a month, which is about 4-5 listens per day :P

Highly recommened for some good jammin xD

Cons

cant make unlimited accounts unless you have a ton of emails now

STILL GREAT THO!

"An AMAZING service that surpasses all other music services!"

July 27, 2006  |  By S l a y e r

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

Rhapsody gives you access not only to millions of songs, but music videos, artist profiles, radio, and more. With rhapsody's "to go" service, you can take songs on a compatible mp3 player (sorry ipod lovers) for only $15 a month!

Users can also publish playlists on rhapsody or send them to a friend's email. Top playlists show up on the leader board.

Rhapsody can be used on up to three computers. Rhapsody even synchronizes your music library on all authorized computers.

Lastly, downloaded songs are good quality: 160-192k .wma.

Rhapsody is the most comprehensive music service for any music-lover who would rather pay a little for good quality music than pirate lossy content from p2p services that are often not legit.

Cons

As was previously said in another review, rhapsody is not "skinable." However, I have heard of people hacking the software and creating their own skins. The other downside is that purchased tracks are .rax files (Realaudio), a semi-useless format as far as flexibility goes.

"You Gotta Have This!"

July 05, 2006  |  By theobiebunch

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

Just as equal of a muxic selection as the other unlimited music engines out there but much more stable. I tried another music engine and it froze my puter. Spent all night listening to this one. Worth the Price by far.

Cons

If paying a small price for a lifetime of music enjoyment is a con to you...call it at that. To me it is a wise investment.

"Huge library and lightening fast speed make this a top choice for music lovers."

July 03, 2006  |  By thellar

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

One of the best looking interfaces that I've ever seen. Buffering of songs occur while they're playing, massively decreasing the time needed to begin playing songs that are clicked on. Controls are fairly easy to use and the music library is all that could be hoped for.

Cons

This excellent program comes with a very high price tag that forces low budget users like me to use the yahoo music engine instead.

"RHAPOSDY PROVES THE INTERNET IS A GIFT FROM HEAVEN."

May 07, 2006  |  By JDreller

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

First, I must preface that I do not subscribe to Napster, YahooMusic, Itunes, or any of the other top music sites. So this review of Rhapsody may pertain to those sites as well. Basically, Rhapsody has CHANGED MY LIFE. Like many people, I am a music lover who was being force-fed the pay-per-playlist of the handful of media conglomerates that own the radio industry. I grew up on U2, REM, Guns n Roses, and Led Zeppelin. Now, four years after first subscribing to Rhapsody, I listen to Charlie Parker, Thievery Corporation, Il Divo, The Sex Pistols, and other bands I would have never been exposed to without Rhapsody. I know all of that music is out there, but Rhapsody's ease of use, fantastic seletection, and brief, yet informative, reviews have me at the computer sifting through music of years past instead of on the couch watching sitcom reruns. I reccomend Rhapsody to everyone because "for $9.95/mo, it's a whole world of music." Also, because Rhapsody pays the publishing giants their dues, the artists see some of that money unlike the illegal p2p sharing that's killing the industry. THANK'S RHAPSODY! $9.95 a month is a no-brainer.

"great music manger/jukebox"

January 08, 2006  |  By koala72

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

i dont use rhaposdy for the legal music (because i buy cds) but the jukebox is fantastic for organizing music and playing it! shows the album art if you enter the album name. gives you a little info about the band

Cons

its not skinable, songs skip if pc is slow in memorey ( i wouldnt worry if you have a good amount of memory and a good pc)

"Good for music enthusiasts looking for good quality legal music"

January 04, 2006  |  By Computerman2257

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

think about it. $10 a month for this, or $250,000 in fines and 5 years in jail for illegal downloading? i'd rather pay $10 a month. Fast steaming speeds, great quality on the streams.

Cons

Only 2 problems. 1. this program will only let you download your tracks for offline playing on 3 computers (this applies to purchased music too). 2. you can't burn the music without buying it (it's .89 cents a track)

"Keep Your Old Version"

December 04, 2005  |  By Insane Alice

 |  Version: Rhapsody 25 3.0

Pros

Rhapsody has a very good selection of music, about as much as ITunes and some that ITunes does not have.

Cons

When I try to download the new version the download link does not work and I follow the instructions by technical support. If they want us to upgrade they need to provide a more stable download link.
