"Used to be better..."

June 22, 2006  |  By hobag1

 |  Version: Winamp 5.23

Pros

I've been using Winamp since the mid 90s and it's always performed well. Good sound, lots of options, cool skins, and it's free. But it's not what is once was.

Cons

Winamp keeps issuing updates, it seems like every week, and the only apparent purpose is to bundle more adware with it. Be careful when installing to uncheck all the bundled "ad-ware." This isn't the really invasive stuff, but it's annoying and loads the computer up with useless advertising junk. That's too bad, b/c otherwise Winamp would be great. O, and you can get Winamp "Lite," that won't include this stuff, but it's too basic for me.

Good sound, a beauty interface, very customizable (lot of skins and plugs in). Simply a classic jukebox. The best program to hear music on your computer.

None

"WinAmp is best there is"

June 13, 2006  |  By revstar

 |  Version: Winamp 5.23

Pros

All in one - equalizer, player, multimedia. Outperforms all others including MS MP 10. Real Player doesn't compare.

Cons

In latest versions, have discontinued stock video music clips. Some were my all time faves.

"TOO MANY BUGS WITH THIS VERSION"

June 11, 2006  |  By Hi Def

 |  Version: Winamp 5.23

Pros

I have been a big fan of Winamp for years now and have the Pro version. It's a fabulous music machine with some of the plugins added.

Cons

There are some serious burner & related issues with this release. Check out the WinAmp Tech support forums for more info. Like many software apps., it appears that WA v5.23 was released to the marketplace before it was ready.

"Getting Bloated with Useless Junk"

June 11, 2006  |  By timurlane

 |  Version: Winamp 5.23

Pros

Like the way it lets me organize my music.

Cons

They are packaging too much 'stuff' that I have to keep deleting out. I do not want 50 free MP3's, etc. Lite version is 'too lite'

"Great"

June 11, 2006  |  By Pez_

 |  Version: Winamp 5.23

Pros

Iv always been a fan of winamp, and thats because the focus is on sound quality. Especially with enhancer 0.17( mentioned in another review) the sound is really crisp and clear. Noticably better than other media players i have tested it agaisnt including WMP and itunes.

Great community too means that there are plugins for increased functionality such as a "now playing" plugin for msn.

Cons

Initially the media library is a bit messy and too busy to find songs in. But by moving the bars across you can make it organise songs the same way as itunes.

Practically no cd ripping or burning in the free version as the limitations make the features useless. You can get the full version off some p2p networks which is obviously wrong and I do not recommend this.
