    "Did the job"

    February 20, 2014  |   By AmyWalker74

    Version: Zamzar

    Pros

    Fast. FREE. No software download. Super easy.

    Cons

    Only con (which really isn't a big deal) was that it kept making you think you had to register with your email...but if you read carefully you would see that the big register button was NOT required & you could pick the "small print" link below it to get the actual downloaded file you wanted. If you've ever used freeware, you should be used to how to navigate to avoid the "land mines."

    Summary

    I had a .wpd file I needed to see & couldn't get open any other way (so far). Went to the site and within five minutes it was converted to a pdf file. Perfect!

    "Lackluster."

    August 1, 2013  |   By Mashkai

    Version: Zamzar

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Free.

    Cons

    No indication of whether your conversion worked or not until you receive a confirmation email.

    Out of hundreds of attempts today, one of them was successful. Just one.

    No indication of problems encountered so no way of correcting the issue and trying again.

    "useless, pointless"

    March 21, 2012  |   By seeharmony

    Version: Zamzar

    Pros

    free, but?????

    Cons

    I converted a simple pdf to doc format but it didn't convert it, it just put images of the pages onto a doc! So now instead of a pdf I have images on a doc that I can't do anything with.

    Summary

    Pointless. A waste of time.

    "Pretty all-around useful tool"

    September 12, 2011  |   By Kolrok

    Version: Zamzar

    Pros

    -- Free
    -- So far seems spam free
    -- Has a wide variety of files it can convert to

    Cons

    -- No cons so far except that it takes a bit of time to convert and send to you.

    Summary

    Overall seems like a very useful tool to know about; I will use it a lot. I would especially recommend this to people using a computer using something like Open Office instead of Microsoft Office, as Open Office cannot open Publisher documents.

    Some cons mentioned above said a con was that it was deleted after a day. This is actually a pro, as many people would not like their files sitting on some website.

    "Converts 100s of file formats quickly easily and free !"

    February 16, 2011  |   By coyote116

    Version: Zamzar

    Pros

    - Supports all the main document, image, video and music file formats
    - Excellent free service
    - Can convert files without logging in
    - Converted files arrive quickly

    Cons

    Ummmmmm ... can't think of any ... why wouldn't you use it !!!

    Summary

    Bottom line is that this is a great service that I've used for ages.

    The site has been around for years (since 2006), which gives me a certain level of trust that these guys know what they are doing. They are also adding new formats all the time (you can get updates on their blog), which is great.

    "Works, is free, and invades your PC"

    November 30, 2010  |   By Mars1962

    Version: Zamzar

    Pros

    It converts easily, even the free online version.

    Cons

    Within SECONDS of pressing "Convert", my inbox was filled with spam. SECONDS. And the previous time that I used this, hours later some commercial for air freshener started blasting through the computer speaker-- I wasn't even ON the computer!

    Summary

    This is scary software to me -- especially that I couldn't even find which Firefox tab was causing the ad to run -- and that it was hours after using the program. Use at your own risk!

    "BEWARE SCAM !!!"

    October 26, 2010  |   By jessypal

    Version: Zamzar

    Pros

    Good at collecting your emails

    Cons

    Where to start? Its a CON i itself.

    Summary

    PDF to DOCX gives you a DOCX file that is full of page screen shots. In other words the convertor does nothing more than take each page of the PDF and convert it to bitmap and put those in the DOCX file. Complete waste of my precious 10minutes and countless of your minutes.. if you use it
