Decent performance, but not a particularly good value for the price since there are free archivers that give you as much.

I pretty much gave up on PowerArchiver because of performance issues but with the release of 2016 that's completely changed This versions features have greatly improved over 2015. Also the Touch Screen Support is NICE and it supports ever format imaginable.

I tried this, and while it is pretty good, things that I don't like are that in order to create RAR files, you must have WINRAR installed. If that is the case, why not just Use Winrar and 7zip?

Price seems a little steep... I mean ONE year of updates for $22 (Basic Version) when you can get lifetime updates of WINRAR for $21. I Own WINRAR and while I considered switching to this, I just don't see the point

Good archiver. Never had any problems. Support is also fine.
I guess PowerArchiver is the best archiver money can buy.

Up until version 9.2, this was a worthwhile addition to a toolkit. Since then, which coincides with the author's decision to make money the sole motivator [it had previously been utility to the average user] for the project, it is at best a poorly crafted, bloated helper for the seriously weak-minded.

Not useless, but not really necessary either.

The software really needs to change their policy about requiring a new serial number for every major update. Its just a hassle to people who have paid for it.

Pros: Good performance
Good archive extraction support

Cons: Licensing system sux. Why not a lifetime license for that price?
So-so archive creation support. Does not compress RAR. I can get the same level of support from a freebie like 7-Zip
Does not contain the level of features expected from a shareware archiver.

Bottom Line: Decent performance, but not a particularly good value for the price since there are free archivers that give you as much.

Very good archiving program. I changed to PowerArchiver from WinZip Pro because WinZip charges user 10eur per year if you want to use latest version.
PowerArchiver provides lifetime upgrades but do not has 64 bit version.
Anyway, good work, keep it up!

Still a very supreme program, couldn't think of a better, even if I wanted to :-)

All I need in compressing and handling of compressed files, FTP, backup, burner and then some.

I really love this program.

And a BIG thank you to Mili Sefic for great support, keep up the good work guys.
