    "Highly recommended"

    January 29, 2007  |   By dj_dsm

    Version: Shareaza 2.2.1

    Pros

    at first I was skeptical, and a Limewire advocate. But then I tried Shareaza, and Limewire is a thing of the past.

    very user friendly

    quick search results

    mp3 searches are endless

    reasonably quick downloads

    NO SPYWARE or ADWARE

    Cons

    not very good search results if not mp3

    not enough skins choices

    "The best P2P app ever!"

    January 17, 2007  |   By Tepholman

    Version: Shareaza 2.2.1

    Pros

    What I like-

    It's free

    Connects to Gnutella2, eDonkey, Gnutella, and has support for torrents

    No malware

    Cons

    What I don't like-

    Somewhat slow downloads at first, but only from the eDonkey network, since edonkey is designed for bigger files.

    "I do not understand why Shareaza is not a TOP downloader"

    January 2, 2007  |   By CarlosFr

    Version: Shareaza 2.2.1

    Pros

    I go back to when people used Winmx.com and all of my friends where downloading from it. I find Shareaza to be extremely fexiable and fast. You can load from muiltiple systems of other 2P2 like Donkey and the quick Gnuetella1&2, Magnet, Piolet and BiTorrent

    Cons

    I can not find enought useful information on how to use this 2P2 better. How to optamize its use and how I can be more useful to other to download from me. A Con about Shareaza is that not enogh people are familiar with it. It appears to be a top of IT computer wiz kids who know about it and they do not seem to be wanting to share it's good product.

    "Seems to be the best..."

    January 2, 2007  |   By brundaise

    Version: Shareaza 2.2.1

    Pros

    Full feature client. Multi-network support. Easy for novice users with many different features to appease the expert. Also a very good looking program. Auto handles torrents gotta love that. Can't find anything else like this.

    Cons

    Will eat your cpu right up if its tuned wide open because your firewall is blocking so much garbage.

    "Brings back bad memories"

    December 28, 2006  |   By SilvaKaiPhantom

    Version: Shareaza 2.2.1

    Pros

    Nothing.

    Cons

    About two years ago I got a used computer and it had this program on it. I never used it, but it really f-ed up the computer. The computer died and few months later.

    "WOW! I couldn't give it 0 Stars!"

    December 14, 2006  |   By ALP1987

    Version: Shareaza 2.2.1

    Pros

    Finds alot of different files......Too bad you cant download them. I have a 4mb Comcast Internet connection and still nothing downloaded. I disabled my firewall and did the port forwarding and still nothing.

    Cons

    You cant download files because it never connects or downloads. It will find the file you are looking for but when you start to download it never starts because no one is sharing it.

    "The best ever"

    December 9, 2006  |   By faelstyle

    Version: Shareaza 2.2.1

    Pros

    it uses gnutella 1 and 2 and suports bittorrent.

    this servers gives u by far a hell lot more results than any other p2p program.

    i tried morpheus, limewire , k lite nitro , edonkey .

    All i saw its shareaza its unbeatable , the only i got more than 500 kbps , secure spyware and virus free.

    when an archive its fake it shows u in red that its spam. Otherwise u should take care of too small archives , but this is for all p2p not only foir this.

    THE BEST EVER

    Cons

    its damm hard to configurate to let it pass the firewall , but when u achiev it the program runs smoothly.

    u neeed to get archives with lots of users so u get faster, but u allways have lots of users so its not totally a con !
