WinRAR Editor's Review

WinRAR is a utility for Windows that can be used to easily extract or unpack many common archive formats, such as .ZIP files. It can also compress down files into .ZIP and .RAR archives. It’s an easy and effective application to use, however unfortunately isn’t free – a big disappointment. It’s available to try for 40 days however, so could tend to all your short term compression needs.

It’s really easy to get started with WinRAR; just drag and drop files you want to archive into the WinRAR window, or use the optionally enabled file tree on the left hand side to select your files. At the top of the WinRAR window, there are several large buttons for quickly accessing common and useful features, such as Add, Extract To and Delete buttons. All other features are available from the menu bar at the top of the window. The WinRAR user interface as a whole is easy to navigate around, and is laid out in a simplistic manor. Any standard Windows user could get going with WinRAR in a matter of minutes.

WinRAR appears to compress and extract files at a good speed, and is a lot more responsive than the build in Windows extraction utility. WinRAR seems to be a very powerful utility, which easy stands up against its competition, however I think the fact that it comes with a price tag may give competitors a slight edge.

WinRAR is an easy to use and powerful compression and extraction tool which I enjoyed using. However, for basic needs, alternatives such as 7zip may save users $30 or so, however missing the ease and simplicity WinRAR brings. I’d rate WinRAR 7/10.
