"What have Ipswitch done? I'm going to find something else!"

April 30, 2005  |  By janwen99

 |  Version: WS_FTP Home 9.02

Cons

Far too fussy. Loads of features I don't need, yet the simple ability to set the local and remote sides to log in to exactly what I want seems to be gone.

My old PC was loaded with WS_FTP LE and I loved it. Imagine my shock when I couldn't load it onto my new machine. I have had the evaluation version of WS_FTP Home loaded for 28 days, and I am now looking for a different method of managing my sites. I don't mind paying for an FTP utility, but this one is bloated and doesn't serve my needs.

"Great product - easy to use!"

April 25, 2005  |  By dreamer2112

 |  Version: WS_FTP Home 9.02

Pros

I've used this product for years, and have never had any problems. It uses a very easy, almost "instinctive" interface, and is very easy to customize. I've never had any problems downloading or uploading anything.

Cons

No "cons" - I love this product!

"Too many bells and whistles"

April 09, 2005  |  By KewlKat007

 |  Version: WS_FTP Home 9.02

Pros

None.

Cons

I agree with many. Why stop giving away the LE version. The last person complained that so many want stuff free. Yes! Some of us are not rich. In any case, the website states that many "home" users were begging for new features. Really? Just about every review I've read here says that they like the LE version and was happy with it. I was. I use the program to upload my personal website. All I ever do is upload files. That's it. I don't need multiple methods of doing one thing, tons of configuration menus, etc.

I understand the menus they crated for the new version, however, it was a waste of coding in my opinion. All I need is an FTP program that can let me upload my files, cmod them, and that's it.

Besides, how was it hurting by offering the LE version? The truth? It wasn't. They just added a cramped up GUI with loads of bells and whistles so they can charge you for it, then say that you are paying for all of the new features. As stated before, many didn't want them.

If a program is worth it, I'm more than happy to pay for it. However, this is not one of them. I'll stick with my free FTP programs.

"Why the change?"

February 04, 2005  |  By NetChick

 |  Version: WS_FTP Home 9.02

Pros

There are none

Cons

When it was LE, it was fine. I have LE on my home pc and it's backed up on cd now so that I can continually use it. After I blew a hard drive on my 2nd pc I downloaded this. What is the problem? You know what happens when companies rename software products and charge? It means they've messed with the coding. If it wasn't broke don't fix it. Just use coffee cup instead.. honestly .. I love ws_ftp, just not any more.

"Makes a simple task complicated."

January 18, 2005

 |  Version: WS_FTP Home 9.02

Summary

Over-engineered, over-written, over-blown. FTP is a simple task why complicate it? is it to justify the cost?
When I un-installed it it failed to un-install properly and I am left with error mesasages every day from it. Their support declined to help.
AVOID

"mourning LE"

January 13, 2005

 |  Version: WS_FTP Home 9.02

Summary

Like other reviewers, I don't find the new version worth the $35 price tag for the average home user, particularly when it doesn't really stand out from all the FTP freeware. With this "upgrade," Ipswitch has just jumped on the unfortunate bandwagon of tech firms who refuse to consider "ease of use" in terms of accessibility.
