    Morpheus 5 is actually very good, i didn't trust Morpheus since their past has been bad but seems they have cleared their act tigether and put some nice features into this program, also the new interface is very nice, better then the other P2P software, as for downloads 300KB/s + on 2MB Broadband, search results are better then all other P2P, i had to enable Gnutella2 in the preferences also which got me more search results

    Reviewing Beta (Jun 12, 2005)

    I have had nothing but good results with the newest builds of morpheus5[at the time of writing v5.0.579]. This version seems to be focused on araticating the obviusly anoying cpu issues that are aparent in the program. They are minimalized significantly, but there's a bit of cpu entensiveness still noticable on my amd xp2000 machine with 512mb of ram.
    The new gui in morpheus 5, while very nice, is very unaccessible. I am a blind computer user here using jaws for windows, and jaws and the gui don't like each other. Jaws loses focus and I have to restore the window in order to even get to use it. I love though that the dl's and results are on one screen rather then in tabbs, just wish it was a little more accessible friendly though.
    If only there was a w3schools for programming gui's.

  52. 2 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing Beta (Jun 7, 2005)

    I decided I would try this. The ad is annoying. The amount of memory this program used up on my computer was crazy. It was very high and my computer was bogged down from the program a lot. The interface is not one I've seen before, which is one I really don't like. I did run tests on my system using Spybot and Ad-Aware and they found nothing (even while Morpheus was running) so it seems like it really doesn't have any spyware in it. Even so, the ads are very annoying and there are better alternative P2P programs without ads and that are free.

  53. 1 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing Beta (Jun 6, 2005)

    If license is Adware how come it says it has no spyware? Careful wording here. To me anything that uses info from your pc for purposes of advertising, tracking, selling, or using your data any for anything other than what is "clear and obvious" to the end user is spyware. Morpheous meets this description--adware tracks where you go and what you do so it can advertise according to your interests.

    Reviewing Beta (Jun 5, 2005)

    Think I'll have to give it a 4.
    -Better search results than any previous versions
    -Fastest download speed i've seen since the days
    days kazaa and morpheus were exactly alike.
    -Nice clean interface
    -Definately nothing dificult about using it

    Cons: (my Opinion)
    Several Apply to just about any P2P.
    -The music player is just something to take up more memory since lots people have much better media players that they use instead of the built in ones.
    -The video player is also just another thing to hog memory.
    -Last but not least those blasted banner ads.

  56. 4 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing Beta (Jun 4, 2005)

    No spyware (despite what people who dont run tests will tell you), however there is one rotating banner (which isnt bad when compared to other p2p apps).

    For an app that uses alot of other networks, it didnt provide nearly as many search results as Limewire did for the exact same searchterm.

    It did however look harder when you request to download a file, and I found that it shortly found alternative download sources and began the download. That said, I noticed it did download files on average just a bit quicker than Limewire, simply because it found more sources.

    Worth a look for anything sick of being overrun with crap just in order to p2p, but stay tuned for future versions, hopefully they will fix some of its minor quirks.

    Reviewing (Feb 10, 2005)

    Well, I have never used this application and from the looks of it, I don't plan to simply because of the Ad/Spyware embedded in it. Kazaa has always sucked up a storm since they killed it over a year ago. What I don't understand is WHY they don't just make a patch for Morpheus that hacks out 100% of the spyware like they do with other applications?? At least then it would allow users to try it without having all this rediculous NONSENSE adware on their PC's.

    By the way, I hope you all realize that there are individuals out there who make morons look like the geniuses of our time, THIS is why AdWare/Spyware succeeds in bringing in BILLIONS of dollars each year for the evil programmers that try to shove it down our thoats. If those sub-human morons didn't exist in our environment, neither would adware/pornware and the like.

    This program reminds me of a virus. Installed it on a secondary PC and it came packed with cheap ad-ware apps that once removed disabled Internet Explorer entirely.

    The second issue I have with this piece of work is the fact it opens more ports on my LAN than I can count. Even when downloads are idle Morpheus uses more bandwidth than any other P2P application I have tried. 1 star here fellas.

    The program is fine (if you remove all its spyware using Ad Aware or Spybot). Unlike Kazaa Lite K++, it doesn't provide good accelerator tools and the PC becomes unstable when you try to preview an incomplete movie using AVIPreview+. The multinetwork option is a great feature, also available in other p2p programs like sharezaa.

    I dont usually bash software nor do I usually just install any P2P file sharing software but for some reason I installed this version of Morpheus.
    I installed the program and it gave me a out of memory error, which i have never got using XP Pro from any other app, ever! I have 2GB of physical RAM so im positive its this program (if you want to call it a program).
    After I hit the OK on the error i restarted the program and everything came up fine. I tried to go into the options to tweak the settings but every screen gave me FIREWALL only options, which im sure this is a bug but still a complete pain in the $##.
    I get out of the config and try to do a search, type in some text and nothing comes up, im not behind a firewall and im on a T1 at my office, so its not my connection. Kazaa, Emule, etc... runs just fine.
    After I finally realize this program is a complete piece of garbage, I have to download a spyware tool to remove all the CRAP this program put in, such as MY SEARCH TOOLBAR, and there isnt a option to remove the TOOLBAR if you decide to keep the program Morpheus.
    Now when I open my broswer, all my Favorite LINK buttons are gone, my whole browsers button interface is re arranged and my browser wants to default to a p**** ENLARGEMENT WEBSITE!

    What a piece of garbage, I can only say that the people in this thead saying this is a "Great" and "Wonderful" piece of software have no clue about using computers or networking with machines on the web. Anyone who says this software even deserves a ranking of "2" is completely clueless and should not be able to post on this board.

    This is the WORST beta I have ever downloaded. I realize its a beta but good lord, the interface, everything about this program is AWFUL.

    Dont waste your time with this one, its a STINKER... TRUST ME.

    Tried installing on another machine as well and got the same results!

    After I uninstalled ALL of the spyware, it isn't so bad. Using Spybot to remove all the fricking spyware they claim isn't there, after that, it isn't so bad. I had to manually remove the ebatesavings.exe spyware, but once that was removed this client wasn't too bad.

    Whoop de do... Morpheus once again has achieved absolutely nothing but polluting people's computers and ripping off other developers' code. Streamcast stole its code from MLDonkey while also breaking GPL. It bundles in tons of spyware garbage that degrade system and network performance. And the networks it connects to aren't really worth a damn. Well, ED2K is good, but it's implemented poorly in Morpheus.

There are far less hazardous ways to locate music and movies on the 'net without succumbing to this suckerware.

    Hello?!! Morpheus 4.0 beta still installs spyware! Tons of it. When I installed it Spybot S&D warned me about no less than four seperate attempts of DIFFERNET programs trying to add themselves to the STARTUP program list on boot.

    I now have a program called "WebsavingsfromEbates.exe" running, and Spybot S&D now reports hits from "MyWay" for IE plugins, etc...

    No spyware my ass. This product is loaded with it.

    Morpheus is now a clone of Gnucleus. It's a pretty useless clone. You would get better search results by opening your window and yelling "Anybody have a file to share?"

    Reviewing Preview Edition (Mar 5, 2002)

    I give it a five.
    Unlike what many people think, I believe that MusicCity has made the right decision.
    See, in a way, the current version less functional and easy to use than the previous version, however, the point of moving to a different technology was probably due to the fact that FastTrack is currently under fire, and will most probably die just like Napster did.
    FastTrack servers are somewhat easy to shut down as they are managed by one center and can be controlled. Gnutella however - by it's nature is almost impossible to shut down.
    To sum things up, IMO, this is the only way to keep Morpheus alive, and I'm sure that the future versions will get better.

    Reviewing Preview Edition (Mar 4, 2002)

    Morpheus used to be one of the best servers out there for these reasons(besides the spyware). 1. Ease of use. 2. Fast downloads/searches. 3. Availability of files. All of these reasons are now not applicable with the Morpheus/KaZaa network. The new version would log on and do nothing. It would not complete a search and I tried several. I know the programmers there are better than that. Winmx seems to be the only functional server still running.

    hmm well... it works i suppose. No where near as useful as morpheus was though. I used to like the searching of the old morpheus - the way you had specific options about the type of file you were searching for but all that is missing from this version.

    At least it does the distributed download thing which a lot of Gnutella clients dont.

    The interface has potential I suppose.

    Also, I suppose the one good thing that should be said about this is that they arent giving up. It would have been easy for them to do a napster and just give up and start charging for songs but they havent. Oh and it seems to be totally anon now unlike the old morpheus.

    I stopped using Morpheus when they started filtering all the MP3s that were above 128kbps. And switched to Gnutella in particular LimeWire (works both under my Windows and Linux systems) and Bearshare (others are too crapy and have too many bugs).
    I downloaded yesteday this new version of Morpheus. What can I say, if it connects to the Gnutella network, it will be the best Gnutella client. It is FAST, takes not much memory (16mb), and has lots of FEATURES! Great, I like blocking all thoses ,, etc I like have that many options for controling uploads/downloads...
    Great, great, great. Now will wait for the next beta badly.

    ok, Morpheus PE isnt perfect i will admit that but remember this, it isnt really even a beta, it was rushed out as the old clients wouldnt work 100%, getting hardly any search reults. The new version has alot more features. the only reason people are saying it is rubbish is because they dont like change and they dont understand how to use it!

    Just sit down relax and look though it, it has alot of bugs as it is a preview version, the final version will probably be 100% different, give music city a break they got this out as soon as they good and in the time they had they did a very very good job!

    Morpheus is the only filesharing-tool and the only network that fullfills my needs. Extremly high resource and ultrafast downloads - better than any other client around.
    The client surely is extremely buggy, but its features are awesome.
    What are the differences between this build and the version 1.2 I downloaded months ago from the Musiccity homepage? The about box still shows 1.2, I don´t rememder the build number of the version I used before?
    I´d be very glad if anybody could tell me ... I didn´t notice any changes yet.

    P.S.: Use @Guard or Webwasher and your client is 100% ad-free. Very usefull for 56k Modems so there´s no bandwide loss for the load of the ad-banners.

    This program is AWESOME. It has 100% replaced any need for Napster. In fact, it is MUCH better than Napster--never any broken or slow downloads and the selection is huge. The way it pools downloads of the same song from several users is its best feature, not only for speed but also because if 1 user disconnects you it just downloads from another. All it needs is a column that shows the time length of the song and we'll be set! And yes, an update would be nice...:)

    When I first saw this listing I though Morpheus had finally gotten a much needed update...but no. This is VERY crappy software. It's essentially the same program as Kazaa EXCEPT with the 128 kbs bitrate limit lifted. Of course, it is also a little buggier than Kazaa for some reason, and it's interface does not make finding and downloading music very convenient. STILL - the service itself is good. There is a large network of people so the selection is one of the better in the post-Napster haze, and most of the time if you find a file, the download will work. Very consistant. Now if only they would finally update the damn software!!!!! It's awful.
