Adobe Reader XI Review

Fernando Ortega
The original PDF reader for Windows
A review of Adobe Reader XI by Fernando Ortega

If you want full compatibility with all versions of PDF documents, then the only original PDF viewer is from the source and that is Adobe. Adobe PDF documents are universally used in business, education and personal exchanges and the documents themselves can contain very rich graphics and diagrams.

Adobe Reader X is the standard in PDF document viewing, yet it does lack in several areas. Firstly, Adobe Reader X can be painfully slow at times and with the awesome amount of ability it packs into one program, I suppose it isn't too abnormal that it might at times slow down. Still, there are many different free PDF readers available and many are choosing not to use Adobe.

The benefits of running Adobe PDF Reader are negligible compared to many of the other options, so if you must, install this program. Otherwise, take a look around for some faster programs like Foxit's free PDF reader.

Adobe Reader XI is software which can read PDF files.
