This is quite a good product but I think it is too expensive for what it is, especially when I've read that people can get free programs that do the same thing.

Of course it is much cheaper than Adobe so that's one thing!

It does a good job and is user-friendly but I would prefer it was cheaper.

Of all Adobe alternatives I tried, this one has the best rendering.

It may be expensive, but of course it supports Windows 7 x32 and x64, no problem at all. And, in my experience, the rendering is excellent.

The accuracy of the font rendering in PDF Factory is absolute rubbish.

This is not a bad product. But I do not think it is as competitive a product as it could / should be.

There are many free apps that do much of what this one does, and some do it at least as well.

That said, it is a bargain compared to purchasing the entire Adobe version, and if you need those higher-end features that only come with the paid versoin of this product, I think it is a solid alternative to the Adobe original.

I feel a rating fo 3.0 is fitting, given all of this.

Had to go back to 3.38 as 3.40 crashes computer on x64. As does fineprint 6.05 (6.04 is fine). Quite a few are reporting this problem

Version 3.40 spooler has problem working with Citrix universal printing driver. Change to version 2.7 solved problem. Fineprint 6.05 shares same problem too (same spooler?).

No font rendering problems here. I use it integrated with fineprint and it does exactly what is needed.

Sure there are many pdf printers nowadays and there are many similarities but the stacking and letterhead features are particulary useful for me.

Just tested the latest version and it STILL has the exact same font rendering problems from 5 years ago.

Feature wise it's not too bad, but in terms of actual usage, if it messes up your output then what's the point?

I dumped the POS a long time ago for good reason.
