The increasingly crowded market for Zip software is becoming more competitive with WinZip and WinRar having to compete with free alternatives such as PeaZip or built in functionality in operating. With WinZip 15 Pro, your paying less for the core functionality and more for the extra elements that Corel have included, the name and the user interface which combined probably aren't worth the money. The program itself uncompresses formats including Zip, Zipx, 7Z, BZ2, CAB, LHA, JAR, TAR, ISO and the nice addition of RAR reducing the need for having an extra program to deal with these files on your computer. However most operating systems (including Windows XP & 7) can deal with several of these file types and Peazip would do the rest.

So why would you purchase this product? Your not going to buy it for the core compressing and uncompressing functionality however the inclusion of backup tools, the ability to create highly customised multi-part files and encryption functions are essentially what you are paying for. The Pro version also offers little over WinZip 15 Standard with only the adding of some automated backup features. On Windows 7, the program integrates well and runs efficiently on my general use laptop.

Overall, there are some nice extra features in this software but nothing worth the price tag. Operating systems own built-in functionality will be enough for most users with Peazip providing some extra functionality where required. Only individuals or businesses who find themselves needing to compress large files with specific requirements or file formats should purchase this software.

With the ever increasing sizes of Hard Drives at cheaper prices it is somewhat surprising that we would still find a need for a file compression utility.
Most operating systems now of course offer a compression and zip file extractor as built in without you knowing it.
Having always used it though from the initial freeware versions I have kept current with the various versions but the limitation imposed making this a single licence utility I do find annoying. I cant see many customers opting to install it throughout their home network with this limitation.
It will unzip more formats now including .rar.
I am not sure that the Winzip 15 Pro version which includes the backup utility would replace my reliance on Acronis TrueImage to do this for me.
As with most good software more and more functions get crammed in with every release until the tipping point is reached where you dont use most of it.
I think that point has arrived with version 15.

Don't get me wrong, WinZip is a great zip utility, and the Pro version has lots of extra bells and whistles there is no questioning that. The real problem (and the main reason I have only given it 3 stars), is it does not really stand out from the crowd of much cheaper (and often free) alternatives. There are some serious shortcomings in the performance area too.

My main gripe concerning performance is that compared to something like 7Zip, not only does WinZip take longer to compress files (typically 20% longer), it also results in slightly larger files too.

I also find it amazing that in 2011, Winzip is still a 32bit application, as compressing/decompression is something that can greatly benefit from a native 64bit engine. This may explain why it did not perform as good as the 7Zip software.

The other point I have marked it down on, is that during registration you are forced to go online and activate the software which involves putting your email address in. Corel then use this email address to spam you with other "solutions". There is no initial way to opt out of this.

It's not all bad thou. The user interface is nice, it's very intuitive and file format support is very comprehensive (much better than older versions of Winzip).

Pros:
Nice intuitive User Interface
Flexible licensing (upto 2 PC's non concurrent use)
LOTS of features.

Cons:
Slower than other compression apps
No 64bit version
Some features feel a little disjointed and don't belong.
Corel Spam

Having used Winzip at work for years I was pleased to get hold of this at home.

Winzip is a tool used to shrink your files down to make it much easier to either store/archive them or for distribution.

It can shrink files substantially and is a huge help when needing to email big files.

The latest version was easy to install and is very easy to use. It integrates into the Windows User Interface so you can right click any file/folder and choose to Winzip it. You can also load the main Winzip front end and do it that way.

The Winzip tool is an excellent tool and now has an FTP Upload feature. In the past I've had to buy specific FTP software to upload to my websites so this is a welcome addition.

It's fair to say that it's not as essential as it once was, as Windows comes with a built in ability to zip files now but it's still well worth a look if you want to do lots of compression and especially if you wish to encrypt your files for security.

Well worth having to meet your compression needs. A good product.
