I used to use Limewire on my old Mac laptop. I found it to be temperamental, glitchy and crashed quite a bit. Many people have told me its a surefire way to get a virus... if you're a PC user. I switched to using Xtorrent Pro for Mac, its far more stable and hasn't caused any problems for the several years I've been using it.... … Read Full Review

User friendly. good variety. Could do with a better junk filter,which is more refined.4.18 version is a little bit better. All in all www.limewire.com is fairly good. user friendly,as long as you can filter out the junk you'll be okay… Read Full Review

This is a biggie! I had many infections delivered also, so have completely removed lime wire from my computer. Ashame really. It started off so well but there cannot be an adequate filter to prevent nasties being downloaded alongside the music… Read Full Review

There does not seem to be an adequate virus filter on the limewire site and thus the infections flow through to the user as in my experience. I have now removed limewire.com from my computer and do not recommend this site for music download… Read Full Review

I've been a member for a few years now. I was in limewire 5.9. I had a lot of trouble with my computer, among other things I lost Limewire. So I liked it so much I downloaded again [ £26] okay but now I can't download to cd or dvd. I did this with neroexpress. I'm 73 and I cant afford anymore… Read Full Review

The downloading systems used are fair, but don't be selective on the musics allowed to be downloaded. If I am searching for an artist/album, give me all he got.
I don't use credit/debit card, I love certain musics/artists. I can pay for the service. Use a system where the customer can send a check or money order. I have lived here for 19 years, and don't intend to move.
I don't appreciate no bugs, quick interruptions, nor musics/artists you choose to let out. Do business right, and I guarantee… Read Full Review

Overall Limewire is good if you don't care about your PC as it has a high potential to crash and get a virus. I wouldn't recommend this site if you have a decent PC/Laptop.
The selection of music is great and basically everything you can think of is there also it is really easy to use… Read Full Review

Still the best free music and video search and download engine. Although the system is not virus-proof it would only need a keen eye for potential virus infected files (which is actually quite obvious). Perfect for personal music downloading from the internet, the system is user friendly. Well recommend limewire.com… Read Full Review

Music searches are good with reliable results.
Movies are quite poor quality I have found from my experience.
OK product however 1/3 of movies are useless because of maddening numbers that tick during the movie, unwanted foreign languages, unsynchronized dialogs, fuzzy picture quality, NO WAY TO PREVIEW, so one must wast time and cross your fingers as to whether the movie is any good… Read Full Review

You can search for nice music and get some really good, sometimes rare songs... It's nice but sometimes problematic, in my experience it does not always connect easily... I have to wait for months to reconnect.. before you can download music or songs.... Therefore I do not recommend Limewire even though it is a cool idea… Read Full Review

It works at first but eventually, I noticed that my computer was running really slow and before I knew it wasn't working. It's harder for me to start my computer too. I have to buy a computer 2 times… Read Full Review

I haven't gotten a single virus from limewire, on limewire go to programs and you can download limewire pro for free, also songs are usually around 2000kb to about 6000, anything less for a song is usually a virus so don't download it. Nevertheless I would advise you to use different methods to download music… Read Full Review

Limewire has almost all of the songs I look for. Lots of times there will be something that is supposed to be one thing but it's something else. I think it's an all out good site… Read Full Review

Everyone I know who has used Limewire got a virus. My nephew had to buy a new computer. I had to reinstall my operating system. I tried to start using limewire again and got an adware virus the first time I started using it again. I uninstalled it and will never use it again. It's no worth ruining your computer over. Use itunes or raphsody. Anything but limewire in my opinion… Read Full Review
