“Kazaa sucks”

Kazaa wont even let you transfer the music you download to your mp3 player or a cd or any think you can download the songs to your computer and play them as long as your on the internet but if you do that you could just play the raido i would not let any one use this junk its a waste of money… Read Full Review

I used Kazaa for two months, didn't download many songs because they don't make it very simple, and when I canceled my subscription, the few songs I didn't manage to download managed to vanish. LOL Please don't waste your time and money on Kazaa their not worth the headache… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2011

Great site for finding music - impressed with downloads. Yes it costs money, but you have to weigh your options. Here is my problem with Kazaa - after I downloaded songs, some would not play. It gives you a licensing error. I wrote to the company and they sent me a list of things to do to fix the problem. I did exactly what they said and it worked for a couple of songs, but then I had the same problem. Out of 10 songs that I downloaded about 3 won't even play. Very disapointed - just… Read Full Review

NOOO TO KAZAA!! Yes you have 'unlimited' downloads from their music library, as long as you pay $20 a month... But understand, when you end your subscription, you can NO LONGER listen to those 'downloaded' files. Thats $240/yr for music you DO NOT own. Not a good investment for my bucks… Read Full Review

“I tried Kazaa out for a night because I thought it...”

Written on: 02/03/2011

I tried Kazaa out for a night because I thought it would be a good idea to get a bunch of music for a party. I couldn't really find a whole lot of the songs that I wanted so I emailed the company asking to cancel my subscription. I thought it was a little odd to cancel that way so I watched it for a couple of weeks to see if it charged my card. I didn't see anything so I thought I was good. 10 months later I saw a charge on my credit card from this company. I went back and checked my… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...This is exactly what happened to me. I just got off the phone with a smart-ellic customer service rep that basically told me I was computer illiterate. I explained that about a year ago I looked into a Kazaa account looking for a few songs and it was not what I wanted. I then unistalled the program that night. My husband notices $19.98 on our online banking from Kazaa that has been coming out since last May. The rep confirmed that there had been zero activity on my account, but said that since I hadn't called to cancel it didn't matter that I had uninstalled the program. She then continued to compare it to my cable service and that whether or not I watch TV every single day I still am charged for that service. To this I responded, "I get a bill in the mail every month for our cable!!!!! They do know draw from my account with no form of notification." She had nothing to say to this other than, well you should have gone over the terms of conditions again. AWFUL. TERRIBLE. DO NOT RECOMEND.

This is the kind of stuff I want to hear about when I am checking on the character of the way a company does business. Apparently, this is not the only person to have a problem. I didn't like the way the first page of the website was presented. There was no information about the company and from the few album covers they presented, they would not have much that I would like. So I came here to check reviews... even that makes them look like they are well recommended. Not for me.

“I love Kazaa. I'm talking about the new, legal Kazaa....”

Written on: 10/02/2010

I love Kazaa. I'm talking about the new, legal Kazaa. Wikipedia says that Kazaa has been legal since 2006...
I'm saving a lot of money now that I use Kazaa, coz I used to buy a CD probably every week, for $20.
That's about $80 a month. Now I can listen to as much music as I want from Kazaa, for just $20 a month! It's a no-brainer… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2010 by stardog32 (18 reviews written)

I've been a Kazaa subscriber for over a year now, and I'm really happy with it. The old Kazaa is gone, now it's an all-you-can-eat subscription service for $20 a month.

The way I see it is that I can either:

a) Look for illegal music all over the internet, limewire, etc, and then worry about bad quality music, or viruses, or trojans, or even getting sued, or

b) I can pay $20 a month to download as much quality music as I want, from a legitimate, legal service.

It's a really simple… Read Full Review

I am looking for a different site that has the same style of setup that Kazaa has. I think Napster and such are crazy with their charges for downloading a song. No way I will pay $30 for downloading 30 songs on a CD… Read Full Review

When I downloaded this to use I had loads of viruses when I got the software, then everytime I got a song a also had a virus there slogan should be "get a song and then get a virus free!!" I would not recommend this to anyone and I also out to pay loads of money for the viruses to be wiped… Read Full Review

Ok, Kazza is good and yeh it has alot of files. But if you do some searching around the web then there are better, i.e. Shareaza, Limewire etc that have an equal amount of files but download much faster.

Written on: 25/10/2004 by WSD (71 reviews written)

Kazaa is ok if you're looking for a specific and popular song by a known artist. If you're plugging an artist's name in randomly to find stuff you don't have then good luck. Kazaa only returns a set number of items and will mostly provide duplicate albums held by loads of different people. It doesn't continue searching until you get a comprehensive list or hang about until someone logs on and then show you those items - which other, similar sites will do. I've also found it's slow and… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/10/2004 by Stunt Gerbil (65 reviews written)

Kazaa is a great program for downloading music films etc for the web. This is mainly because it's free and seems to have more stuff than anywhere else. If you're looking for rare B sides, Live performances or Bootlegs look no further. Unfortunately such behaviour appears to more than bend copyright laws, I not been charged and I think their current plan is to target the people that upload not download. I should point out that a lot of stuff is on their with artists permission and you can… Read Full Review

I found it very good for many things but when you download them they almost all have a virus warning over the contents, and a lot of 'programes do NOT work.' Beware of this, and the "attempted back door trojans too."

hi; KAZAA'
<br>A friend of mine has just removed this permanently, he had the full Norton Antivirus/Internet Sec/and firewalls, but he was infiltrated by spyware and attempted trojans ALL the time, took a lot of 'cleaning after', good job I had a cyberscrub (WELL recomemnd that product); NOT ever KAZAA.

I have had the worst time trying to find live performances and bootlegs. In fact, if an artist has released anything recently that's all that you can find! I shouldn't complain too much though, I did find a couple of out-of-print b-sides I've been looking for for YEARS.
