Editors' Review

+
PDF documents have become the format of choice for distributing formatted documents around the Web. For that reason alone, it's good to have some choice in how to read or edit them. EXPert PDF Reader provides much the same PDF-reading capability as Adobe's own software, along with some ability to annotate files and modify document outlines. The interface is fairly easy to use, although we would like to see more screen space given to the actual document itself. We found the program fairly slow when handling large PDF documents, a definite drawback. Printing documents was not a problem, but the text-search function did not work in our tests. On the whole, we see little reason to switch from other free PDF readers to this one.

"I would not recommend it to you."

December 04, 2007  |  By lamkinfai

 |  Version: eXPert PDF Reader 1

Cons

The toolbar takes a lot of space.

It is extremely slow.

You can only rotate the documents clockwise.

I do not have the patience to find out the fourth bad point.

"Doesn't edit, just view and print"

October 29, 2007  |  By Ian Mackereth

 |  Version: eXPert PDF Reader 1

Pros

It might be smaller than Adobe's free reader (but, really, who cares?)

Cons

It doesn't edit PDFs, although the description states that it does. Blatant false advertising; it's really just a honeypot for their $$$ Pro version.

"Not worth the trouble"

October 15, 2006  |  By nealmed

 |  Version: eXPert PDF Reader 1

Pros

None

Cons

I tried to open a simple PDF doc and i saw the graphics logo on top and below it a big black block. Tried to get help etc.

No answers.

Simply a waste of time. If CNET didn't force me to put at least one star, I wouldn't have put any.

"Great And Simple Program But No Support For Firefox"

May 01, 2006  |  By electriic_ink

 |  Version: eXPert PDF Reader 1

Pros

This is a very nice PDF reader for those of us with having to put up with downloads at 4KB/s.

It opens a pdf file with 46 pages smoothly and with that file open is taking 2,456k of the memory usage (almost negligable) and ~89,000k of the virtual memory. Inasmuch as Adobe's Reader* is hogging 5.66k of the memory, you can see that Adobe's* uses a significant amount of memory.

Also eXpert PDF reader's loading times are next to none on my machine whereas the Adobe Acrobat Reader* takes a good 10-15s.

It may not have all the fancy features like be able to read out the page using Microsoft's text to speech engine but how many people use that anyway?

This is an excellent program for who just want to open, read and print PDFs like any normal home user would.

It also comes with five themes.

* version 6

Cons

When opening my 46 paged file, it took ~89k of virtual memory as opposed to ~33k on adobe acrobat reader 6

Does not intergrate with firefox. In lieu, adobe reader still does so. Guess we'll have to wait for them to create a plugin.
