4.0 out of 5 stars Better performance and enhanced security, but not a must, 1 Mar. 2011
This review is from: WinZip 15 Standard Single User (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although these days WinZip has many competitors, it is still the mostly widely used compression application, and deservedly so because ZIP files are an incredibly efficient way of compressing files.

WinZip 15 now compresses files even quicker, supports very large files above 4Gb, and allows multi-part and self extracting archives to be created. Security is also a strong point, with encryption and password policies supported. The camera wizard is also a nice touch, allowing photos to be transferred and automatically resized before compressing into a ZIP file.

The WinZip interface is very uncluttered and straightforward to navigate and all of WinZip's features are easy to find and use. It also includes a handy desktop gadget onto which files can be dragged to be compressed or uncompressed.

The main decision any potential buyer needs to make is whether WinZip 15 offers enough added value compared with the native Windows ZIP file support. If all you want is the ability to open or create Zip files, then Windows already provides this and WinZip 15 is a bit of a luxury purchase. If, however, you require more sophisticated ZIP file management tools and extra features like enhanced security, then this is the ideal application.
