    "Seems to have lots of features... but..."

    September 20, 2010  |   By UnZiped

    Version: ZipGenius 6 6.0.3.1150

    Pros

    FREE is always good... but only if it works... looked everywhere, but there is no obvious way to set the default compression level... it seems not to compress at all... just mirror the files... whassup wit dat?

    Cons

    If anyone can tell me how to make this little jewel ACTUALLYcompress... I'd be a happy guy...

    Summary

    OK, it may be great, but I have no way of knowing... just a regular guy, no geek chromosomes... so there should be an easy and obvious way to set the default compression level... righhhht? wrong...

    "Zip Genius is definitely that..."

    November 26, 2009  |   By RR1K

    Version: ZipGenius 6 6.0.3.1150

    Pros

    Handles so many compression formats it's sickening; the .zip compression format is only its default algorhythm. ZG handles .tar, .rar, and many others on top of .zip formats. You can perform standard .zip transaction from the context menu.

    Cons

    Sometimes the tool suite will not release resources causing a memory leak; the leak is harmless but, annoying.

    Summary

    The application for having only one flaw is incredibly suited for individuals like developers but, also is of importance to anyone looking to optimize their file and data resource management style.

    "Compress your NTFS storage drive and .zip up your .mp3s' to save a tremendous amount of storage memory."
    ZG will hang and lock up an archive if the archive was not closed prior to closing ZG itself; to work around this you simply open another file archive with ZG, then close the archive followed by ZG and all is good in the world again. Pretty painless corrective action considering that this is the only bug with the tool suite that I've seen to date.
    I personally have been using Zip Genius since 2004 and will continue to do so well into the foreseeable future. There are two types of people when it comes to tools like ZG -- those who have and use it and those whom wish they had it sooner so that they could have already been using it. No bull.

    "Pretty fast; easy to use"

    November 20, 2009  |   By skaizun

    Version: ZipGenius 6 6.0.3.1150

    Pros

    It was fast on simple/small files; its user interface is intuitive and easy to use

    Cons

    It is horrendously slow when zipping large amounts of video files, and, at some points, it is not clear that it's doing anything.

    Summary

    I needed to replace the old WinZip, which, since I upgraded to Win Vista, gives lots of errors, although it still works for the most part, though, obviously, I can't trust it. I tried QuickZip, but was unhappy with the unintuitive, non-user-friendly, interface. ZipGenius does what I need it to do, and is better than WZ or QZ, IMHO.

    "Works great with Win XP. Not so hot with Win 7."

    October 26, 2009  |   By MrGooseEgg

    Version: ZipGenius 6 6.0.3.1150

    Pros

    Works great and very easy to use when installed on Win XP machine. Context menus make archiving chores quick and easy.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to work at all in Win 7. Can't get context menus to show up and toolbar buttons for creating an archive don't do anything.

    Pros
