imesh - a mess morelike

Advantagessmall download, good search options, various formats to share

Disadvantageslarge amount of porn, downloads rarely successful, poor d/l rates

"Imesh looked like being the successor to Napster that would be different to the others, i.e. it would have a good take up (unlike Aimster and BearShare) and would also be easy to use. After a brief flirtation with Winmx – a good service until everyone jumped on board, I turned to imesh, and was impressed with the ease of installation and also the fact that it could be run through a firewall, something that had not been the case with other file ..."

Definatley NOT Napster

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesLooks awful, poor download speeds and bad integration with other programes on your computer

"...seconds to actually open the iMesh.com homepage, could have been my connection, but then all the other sites I had visited that night were uploading quickly enough. Once on the website a shockingly large amount of Advertisments jumped out at me and the whole thing looked a mess and very difficult to actually see what I was supposed to be looking for! But then I found it "DOWNLOAD NOW!" It was in the middle of the screen, but all the adverts ..." Read review

Its quite good actually

Advantagesmultiple downloads, download from more than one person, can continue downloading songs after being disconnected

Disadvantagescan be a bit slow

"I had been looking for a music sharing program for a while and thought that it would be a good idea to download napster. Just as I had finaly got my head round to it, napster was being sued and threatened by the courts. I thought it was necessary to look for another one. A friend recommended iMesh to me. I happily accepted his opinion as he has made good recommendations in the past and I downloaded iMesh. At first it was a bit daunting, especially ..." Read review

Napster Replacement

AdvantagesIt isn't bad

DisadvantagesIt isn't Napster

"With the recent demise of Napster we all need to look elsewhere for our MP3 downloads. As of yet there has not been a clear cut winner in the race for a replacement, but can iMesh hope to tempt all the ex Napster users? The only little niggle was that no sooner had I downloaded iMesh and ran it that it told me that due to a request from the RIAA iMesh are in the process of stopping users downloading copyrighted files. So the chances are that in ..." Read review

Advantageswell, there is room for improvement

Disadvantagesunreliable

"I-mesh is an alternative to napster. A pretty poor one i might add. I downloaded it a few weeks ago, it took a while for me to actually find the imesh homepage and even longer for it to load. "hmm, strange", i thought, but carried on regardless. I downloaded the programme, and installed it...and then, well my computer froze. i restarted the computer and started imesh again, this time, it was okay and i did a search for a song. Because you can ..." Read review

The day the music died

AdvantagesExcellent software, at last information is FREE

DisadvantagesUS partypoopers stopping progress once again, it could got the same way of the Napster...:-(

"If you've been hankering for somewhere to get your mp3's from now that Napster has deteriorated into a shadow of its former self then iMesh was, for a long time, the answer. It runs along the same principles as Napster - its an online community where users contribute their own files to a massive database and are able to download each others files and mp3's direct from their hard drives. The software for iMesh is so far superior to Napster that ..." Read review

Haha - All Fool You Mr. Record Industry

AdvantagesSee OP

DisadvantagesSee OP

"So Napster has finally fallen...well almost, and the record industry think their greedy little fists will once again be counting billions of pounds (which they have allegedly lost out on due to mp3 file sharing on the internet)... or NOT, as the case may well be! I, Miss Marple, (or Louisa Scott - as I am known during the weekdays, ooh apart from on Tuesdays - when I'm called Simon and wear a wimple, but that's a different hanky of snot altogether!), ..."

Don't despair.. There is life after Napster.

AdvantagesYou can download music, multimedia, photos, software, source files etc.

DisadvantagesIf you find any let me know.

"Don't despair.. there is life after napster. After being a very regular user of Napster for the past 12 months, I was extremely upset to hear about it's imminent closure. I for one will be very sad to see it go. After desperately trying to download, every song that i could remember from the past 20 years, I decided to look for an alternative. That's when I came across iMesh. iMesh is a young, dynamic company which was founded in 1999, and ..." Read review

iMesh - The new Napster

AdvantagesYou can completed downloads if you are logged off

Disadvantages'Queues' can last for ages

"Despite what the other reviewers think, I think iMesh is great. I don't know how they could not find the site (www.imesh.com) as it is that simple. I went to iMesh after talking to my friends about Napster's 'closure' and how I wish I could download songs again. I went straight to the site where I clicked download and that was it. No ‘mess’ as some have been saying. After it had downloaded, quite quickly (on a 56k), When it started ..." Read review

Nothing is free

AdvantagesFree, music and video sharing on the net

DisadvantagesBuggy, adaware, high probability of virus infection

"iMesh, the noteworthy survivor after the Napster case. Napster (for those who don't know) was one of the largest internet filesharing companies in the world. Basically one could get their software for free and then share whatever you had on your hard drive with other people from around the world. But copyright laws do prohibit such activities. And Napster got taken to court and lost. iMesh works in a very similar fashion. And by utilising loopholes ..." Read review

The best alternative to napster

AdvantagesSuperb package-quick to download

Disadvantagesnone

"As napster is drowning in contraversy and it's future remaining unsure, a large number of it's users are trying to find an alternative. I was looking around on download.com and noticed the section called Napster alternatives. I downloaded IMESH, and started it up. It reminded me of napster, as it asks you to enter a username, your details and your connection speed if you know it. Layout The layout looks remarkably like napster. Theren are 6 ..." Read review

Advantagesfree of course

Disadvantagesthe 3rd version not as good as the 2nd.

"Like lot's of people, when Napster's dead i looked forward a new software to download free MP3.. [Yes i know, some of you will tell me about morality, that Mp3 kills the song etc etc.. All right,but smoking kills people, weapons kills innocents...] So,during a little time i used download accelerator plus,which had a mp3 motor's research integrated. But the problem with it, it searched only in the USA with audio find. I couldn't find ..." Read review
