Editors' Review

+

WinRAR is a lightweight, flexible, and easy-to-use archiving utility that can unpack most archive formats, as well as compress to both RAR and ZIP. Free to try for 40 days ($29 for single license), WinRAR is definitely top dog in the compression category.

WinRAR's interface is about as simple as it gets. Start creating (or add to) an archive by dragging and dropping your files into the interface or by browsing through the Folder Tree side panel (when enabled). From there, the most common functions are laid out in the form of colorful, mostly intuitive icons, which can all be customized by downloading themes from the company's Web site. Add files to, Extract, Test, Delete, or even Repair archives right from the main interface. Drop-down menus house the program's more advanced features, including self-extracting archives, archive locking, benchmarking, and autodeletion of temp files.

In our performance tests, both creating and unpacking archives was blazingly fast. Compression ratios varied depending on file type, but in general seemed on par with or slightly better than other archiving programs. Overall, WinRAR is a winner because of its speed, simple interface, flexibility with file formats, and powerful advanced features.

"Very Good Compression Utility"

April 23, 2012  |  By privatejohn

 |  Version: WinRAR (32-bit) 4.11

Pros

Since My Computer Was New (2006), I Used This Program For A Long Time, Easy GUI, Fast Compression/Extraction, Light-weight, And Most Of All, VERY Popular (And Important) Program And Format

Cons

A 40-day Reminde Seems Like Annoying (I Understand, Since It's A Commercialware)

Summary

Very Recommended Software If You Want Compression Utility.

"It works as expected"

April 20, 2012  |  By myspotme

 |  Version: WinRAR (32-bit) 4.11

Pros

easy to use, it works without the Adobe download now to work threat from Winzip,

Cons

none noted yet

Summary

easy download, easy install, easy to use, not the mess Addobe has made of it's products, I have used the internet since 91 so have had lots experience with Winzip, to bad Adobe has degenerated to do lots of stuff so poorly, wish for the early days of the internet sometimes when Adobe, PC tools really meant something.

"I prefer jzip"

April 18, 2012  |  By TechFb

 |  Version: WinRAR (32-bit) 4.11

Pros

It's smaller than jzip

Cons

Jzip is better than winrar because...
1.It doesn't annoy me every time I open it & the a window tell me that it's a trial & then I have to buy it
2.It doesn't annoy me like winrar with the winrar options in the tab when you right-click on a file
