Editors' review

Giving WinZip a run for its money, StuffIt Standard offers effortless file compression and encryption for any type of file. It matches WinZip in several features, including archived password protection, right-click compression, and a gallery of easy-to-use wizards. The utility also comes with a few unique features, including a robust search tool that locates files by date, type, size, and compression format. For others to decompress native StuffIt files, they'll either need the free StuffIt Expander utility or they'll be presented with a self-extracting archive, which adds to the overall file size. Fortunately, StuffIt also can compress in several other formats, including ZIP, TAR, and BinHex, though you won't get the added JPEG compression. Given its features, compression quality, and encryption options, StuffIt Standard stands up to WinZip in most areas. Digital-photo mavens may even prefer it.

    "Could not download StuffIt Deluxe x64"

    February 04, 2012   |   By ktgallagher

    Version: StuffIt Deluxe x64 2010

    Pros

    ABSOLUTELY NONE Run WINZIP instead

    Cons

    If I could I would

    Summary

    Operating system Windows 7 I received the following error message : Stuffit_14.0.1.27A_EFGJ_x64.exe is not a valid Win32 application There is no where within the CNET site that I could find to correct the problem. I would be better off on a Merry-Go-Round when trying to get some help, because that's what you get.I am currently running WinZip on my system. Was attempting to download another program, and told to download StuffIt. Which I never was able to do.

    "Shady installation of add-ons!!! don't download this!"

    November 27, 2011   |   By cstuartdesign

    Version: StuffIt Deluxe x64 2010

    Pros

    I needed to download even though I already have winzip and wrar because my client saved the compressed file as a sitx. There was a weird forward where I ended up linked to the stuffit site. Upon install, it installs a bunch of instamail crap and add-ons to my internet browser. VERY SHADY IF YOU ASK ME!

    Cons

    they embedded instamail software with the install. also had a bunch of add-ons on my browser.

    Summary

    Tell your client to start saving as ZIP!

    "Wasted hours trying to install it. (Windows 7 64 bit)"

    June 29, 2010   |   By lwatkin1

    Version: StuffIt Deluxe x64 2010

    Pros

    None. Maybe if I could install it, I might see some. Don't expect help from the home page. It leads you around a circular chase. Never able to even send for help. That page didn't work either.

    Cons

    See above.

    Summary

    Installing a nightmare. Unable to accomplish it after hours of frustration. Being compulsive, I hated to give up but did after hours wasted (I'm reasonablly experienced user.)

    "INVALID SERIAL NUMBERS directly from Smith Micro"

    March 16, 2010   |   By meikel14

    Version: StuffIt Deluxe x64 2010

    Pros

    Ease of use, Dropplets

    Cons

    Serialnumber supplied by Smith Micro rejected as invalid

    Summary

    I purchased this as an upgrade from version 9.0, because i was quite happy with that version. Although there are no imporvements I can see at frist sight, what I like is the option to create SEAs (Self Extracting Archives). The Euphoria ended, when I discovered that my copy was still in Demo Mode. Upon entering the serial number supplied by Smith Micro, it was rejected as invalid. The Forum / Knowledge Base of Smith Micro states a solution, but that doesn't worl.

    "Deleted from my system"

    January 03, 2010   |   By shadow_walker

    Version: StuffIt Deluxe x64 2010

    Pros

    Absolutly nothing!

    Cons

    Doesn't hold a candle to ZipGenius

    Summary

    I would not reccomend this program to anyone. It isn't for the average user nor is it particularly user friendly. It isn't as customizable as even the old dinosaur ZipIt.
