Excellent Explorer Alternative Made In German!
Reviewing 14 Beta 1 (Aug 3, 2011)
Take a look at DirOpus from GPSoft. Nothing better, IMHO...
Reviewing 13.00.5900 (Oct 28, 2009)
More customizable visually than Total Commander, and a better overall appearance than most comparable Commander's (TC included). The configuration options are very well organized,
Development seems more active/frequent than TC, but if you are used to some of the hardcore Total Commander features (Like ToolBar or Menu editing to name a few) then you'll find this application lacking.
Seems better than XYPlorer, which still lacks basic FTP and which only begrudgingly added DualPane recently.
As others have noted, no English help file -- there is an English forum that has some support, but one shouldn't have to go to a forum to ask basic feature-usage questions.
4+ If you're German.
Reviewing 13.00.5875 RC (Oct 6, 2009)
Another good file manager along the ranks of Total Commander and X2plorer. Has built-in Zip, FTP/FTPS/SFTP and advanced file renaming capabilities. With the plethora of File Manager/Explorer replacements out there boasting similar features it's difficult to pick a reason why you should use this one. I was a big user of Norton Commander back in the DOS days and that is what drew me to it. I prefer it to TC but definitely this is not as powerful as X2plorer - just easier to use.
Haven't tried Directory Opus so I can't compare but as Second Shadow pointed out all their support forums are in German.
Reviewing 12.30 (Aug 18, 2009)
Looks good, but.
The program lacks a "compare files" and a few other things including an English help-file, not everyone speak German.
Last but not least the price is way higher than what it claims on this site, it says 37.95$ but it is, 37.95€ / 59.12$.
Much to much for this program IMHO.
Reviewing 12.10.5270 (Oct 6, 2008)
another cheap TC knock-off. why do people bother trying to best what's already bestest and will always be?
Reviewing 12.10.5270 (May 11, 2008)
This is by far the best file manager i have tried. In Windows XP i still use AB Commander, but in Vista this program is more stable.
Especially i like the clearness of the interface and the customizability and the look and feel. Visually it is in my opinion the best. It's of course a subjective thing, but for my eyes this is the best choice (colors, icons, bold file/folder names etc.). It's commands are versatile and absolutely logical.
The program has so many useful features that it is not possible to list them here, please see the author's website.
Reviewing 12.10.5270 (Feb 7, 2008)
this is a poor attempt to duplicate TC... it's really poor in features...
and about XYplorer... dude.. plssss... it's pretty patetic compared to TC... if you're a professional PC user then u know what i'm talking about... the power of TC is really amazing..
and this XYplorer of ur's isnt even free... rather than buy this crap i've rather use CubicExplorer that's free and pretty cool.
Reviewing 12.10.5270 (Feb 6, 2008)
Pretty good, it looks much faster than 12.01, at least under x64.
Reviewing 12.10.5250 (Jan 23, 2008)
Nice file manager, unfortunately the author does not care about the non-german speaking customers. A translation for the help file was requested several years ago and the one thing he came up was a 'Google Translation' for the 'What's New' page in his forum. Therefore, half of the features of this file manager are still unknown for us non-german customers.
Reviewing 12.01.5170 (Dec 1, 2007)
SpeedCommander has a lot of nice features, etc., but for anyone looking for a truly top notch Window Explorer replacement, you really owe it to yourselves to download and try XYplorer (xyplorer.com) It's a truly portable,
multi-tabbed file manager with options far too numerous to list here. You simply have to try it for yourself and test it's many, many capabilities. I have tried almost all of them, and XYplorer is on the top of my list by a long shot...
Reviewing 12.01.5170 (Nov 30, 2007)
Well I'll agree with all the other ratings on this page. However, I will stick with TC and WNC.
Sense I have both on my PC, I use WNC more then TC.
Though both offer great features. WNC is loaded with more features. TC is like NC for DOS. Both have endless upgrades, as long as the EULA doesn't change.
The only thing I see going for this program, is it's price. However I would try others before concidering this.
I used TC when it was WC. Then I went to WNC and stuck with it.
Reviewing 12.00.5130 Beta 3 (Sep 21, 2007)
Quote: "tc better? give me one good reason why the tc is better? "
Can you say "same functionality at a better price and free updates"* plus if you look closer at TC its quite customizable to meet your personal needs. Ok so thats two.
SC looks to be quite good, but I'll stay with TC for the price I've already paid and the developers continuing development.
I'll give it a four just because of the price.
*Edit: I noticed TC has been upped in price since I purchased. But the free updates out does a $18 upgrade everytime a major version comes out.
Reviewing 12.00.5130 Beta 3 (Sep 20, 2007)
Fast and with a nice default layout.
Nice Vista-esque path handling.
Able to open tabs in the different panes.
Very nice, clean menues that are easy to navigate.
Filters are intuitive and easy to understand, but bulky to use (you never use them because it takes longer to set the filters than find the files).
Feels more solid than xplorer2.
The compression and FTP functions are basic and somewhat limited. I'd never use them anyway, I use stand-alone programs for that.
It's far too expensive for a program like this.
To be honest you can just open two Explorer windows with folders .. for free.
I thought I'd dislike it, but I gave it 10 minutes to customize fonts and colors and whatnot and now it's really nice.
Since it's quite a mess to integrate filemanagers like this into the shell and replace Explorer (it is possible to do though) I find most filemanagers to be more of novelty value than anything else.
Still, this is one of the better file managers I've tested.
Reviewing 12.00.5110 Beta 2 (Sep 2, 2007)
Best file manager.
Quite expensive, but it is worth the pay.
Reviewing 12.00.5100 Beta 1 (Aug 20, 2007)
tc better? give me one good reason why the tc is better?
i dont think so and so use the newest beta and believe me you will never go back.
sorry that i dont found an english changelog but if the final will release there will be one and you will see that the new features will kill the tc and the plugins we can use since v11.
now with v12 we get like dopus a configurable status bar and much more...

Excellent file manager, definitely one of the best.
Reviewing 11.0 Build 4430 (Dec 19, 2005)
It can only compare to Total Commander... Total Commander is still much better.
Reviewing 11.0 Build 4430 (Nov 4, 2005)
It finally has replaced my xplorer2 1.4.
It could probably include more english feedback, and a bit more of speed, but quite good job.
Reviewing 10.1 (May 28, 2004)
Very nice application, however it still needs some improvements. First, some documentation in English, since not everybody reads German. Second, possibility of adding "plugins" and Third add more kinds of servers to the FTP, specially MVS.
Reviewing 9.20.940 (Sep 3, 2003)
The best filemanager in the market. Really is very good.
Reviewing 9.1.930 (Feb 25, 2003)
the best filemanager i have ever used. and i tried them all: 2xexplorer, turbonavigator, total commander... none of them reaches this app. (well, totalcommander does in features, but not in ease of use/interface)
