    "A good handy tool for graphic display of net usage."

    December 03, 2009   |   By sachgap

    Version: RxTx 3.2

    Pros

    Is not needed to be installed.
    Resizable window with automatic scalling of graph as per usage.
    Net usage details of a specific period as well as total net usage since start of connection.

    Cons

    Graph should indicate time and KBs (data amount) on X and Y axes.

    Summary

    A real good tool for graphic display of net usage activity. Its more useful when you are carrying out multiple tasks and want to know the total download and upload speed. And if you are using some internet package with limitatios of total downloads over a specific time. I really liked it and recommend you to give it a try.

    "Excellent. "

    November 22, 2007   |   By gioper6

    Version: RxTx 3.2

    Pros

    It's just what I needed to monitor my connection without compromising the system's overall performance. As a dial-up user, now I can choose the fastest connection posible.

    "CASC DSL is far much better than this."

    March 31, 2006   |   By Herbert Talabis

    Version: RxTx 3.2

    Pros

    Small file and has accurate results. You can set meter from KB/s to kbps so you may set benchmark on how fast your connetion. Just run the program and no setup or anything confusing configuration is required.

    Cons

    1) You cannot set it on your system tray

    2) You cannot set the program to run at start-up

    3) You cannot change the color of the graph

    4) You cannot set the tranparency of the graph window if you want to set this on top of all other window

    "Great + Simple to use + Needs no install"

    January 20, 2006   |   By dromer

    Version: RxTx 3.2

    Pros

    Version 3.2 is simple and needs no install.

    + Version 3.2 contains no spyware according to my AVG installation. (And no problems according to SpywareGuard, Spybot-resident, PrevX, Antivir, Regprot and a2-Scanner).

    + Always thought that downloads started at very high speeds. Not so, says RxTx, downloads start with Firefox before you even tell it what it should do with the downloaded file.

    + Works on XP.

    + Works on C:- and D:-partition.

    + Many statistics for experts (i'm not one).

    Cons

    Some minor points.

    - Doesn't like a big graph-window.

    - Menu-handling is a little bit strange.

    - graph-window is like the one in XP (but this can't be a bad thing when working on older Windows-versions).

    "Excellent Program. It does all I need to monitor my data traffic."

    December 23, 2005   |   By claudia05

    Version: RxTx 3.2

    Pros

    The best I found. Unlike other similar programs it does not consume any CPU time. The CPU loading is extremely low even though data is continuously monitored. In addition it only takes 200 KB of disk space. Highly recommended.

    " *BEWARE* TROJAN DOWNLOADER"

    December 06, 2005   |   By jakeoo1

    Version: RxTx 3.2

    Pros

    Nothing!! this program comes with "Trojanhorse Downloader.Istbar.IJ" attached to it!!

    Cons

    The filename is: f5r4Bnh.exe

    Search for it... run your Anti virus, (I used AVG anti virus, amongst others), This is a nasty sucker.

    "Very good program, poor GUI"

    July 15, 2005   |   By actorma

    Version: RxTx 3.2

    Pros

    I don't know about other users, but this program works perfectly fine under my Windows XP (SP2), so perhaps they were having issues with compatability with other programs. Displays speed very quickly, as it does a quick test to web pages. It's will be more accurate the more pages you enter into the preferences file, but even with just a few default pages, it was pretty good.

    Cons

    Very poor interface and GUI -- very non intuitive (using "menu" items as if they were buttons, having to right click just to get a menu in a separate window, etc.). Other than that, the program works well, but is very simple and not very powerful. This is for very basic use only.
