The filtering service is quite handy too, you can filter out ..." Read review

AdvantagesEverything you could need

DisadvantagesSite is so huge it's almost overwhelming

"Free downloads, shareware downloads, demos - everything from games to utilities; it's all on download.com and the various associated CNET sites (sharware.com, computers.com etc). Most programs have a choice of sites they can be downloaded from and guides to their reliability. Over the past couple of years I have downloaded hundreds of items from these sites, for both PC and Mac and most have been bug and trouble free. I've discovered lots of software ..." Read review
