I accepted this for review with a slight sense of indifference as I already use a professional FTP program. But reviewer I am and review I have.

Goodbye professional program. Max-FTP knocked spots off my pro job. Easy to use, fast, scheduling, drag and drop, easy connect and all the features you get in a "Professional" program. I wanted to copy files from one of my sites and my usual FTP program kept timing out, so as an experiment I tried Max-FTP. It was in there like a rat up a drainpipe. Very fast connection and fast download speed. Functions on FTP, LAN and local drives. Easy to set up one click connection to the site and a very easy to use interface. All the usual features like create directory, delete files, copy, move and rename. The ability to drag and drop files from site to disk or vice verse plus a scheduler for transferring files at a time set by the user. 

Now the possibility occurred to me that perhaps I had just hit heavy traffic with my usual program, so in fairness I gave it another go but got the same result. Tried Max-FTP again and back to Road Runner speed. I'm going to use this from now on and I can't give a better recommendation than that.
