Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 20, 2009

Though it's mostly easy to use and boasts a couple of extras, Soulseek's shaky performance makes it a strictly average file-sharing option. The interface isn't beautiful, but it does provide large clear icons for performing actions such as searching for files, sharing folders, and creating a wish list. In some cases, we immediately were able to begin looking for results, but in others, we had problems connecting.

When we were able to undertake successful searches, we found many files were unavailable. Search speeds also were below average, although the inclusion of a chat-room feature is a nice touch. Since it is free, P2P fans might take Soulseek for a spin, but they'll probably also want to keep another few file-sharing clients at their disposal.
