Well if you are going to download the demo of the Pro version and check it out and you don't have broadband it will take awhile. It is 15 Mb. The good news is that is on a fast server and resumable downloads are supported.

The Slim version download is 5.1Mb

The main difference between Slim and Pro are Slim only has viewers for about 60 graphic file formats and HTML. Whereas Pro has viewers for 230 file formats - including most of the popular Word Processors, Spreadsheets, Database, and Presentation Applications.

Here is what the Pro version has to offer according to their web site:

The best replacement yet for X/ZTree

Ok here is the deal. you are getting a 4 in one app here. You get a file viewer for either 60 or 230 different file types of files. You get the really neat Windows Explorer replacement. You get a Ftp client and a Zip client. OK, so I forgo. You can also do encryption and decryption too

In my mind this is one of those real productivity tools that you shouldn't be without. The only decision you need to make is whether or not you need the Slim or Pro version.

The reason for the large price difference between the two versions is that the company is paying royalties to all those people whose files you get to view.

Go get this one!
