"Unstable and resource hog."

July 14, 2015  |  By Buddy1971

2015-07-14 09:47:45  |  By Buddy1971

 |  Version: Skype 7.6.85.105

Pros

It's free for video chat.

Cons

It crashes your computer and uses excessive resources even when it is supposed to be idle. It logs itself in, even when you don't want to. It gave me nothing but trouble.

Summary

I had to uninstall Skype, and I'm not looking to try it again. I will not install it in my new Windows 8.1 machine, and I won't install it after the Windows 10 upgrade. After seeing so many negative reviews here, and horror stories from friends, I feel I am making the right decision. I gave it one-half star.

"Microsoft at it again..."

June 22, 2015  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: Skype 7.6.80.103

Pros

It's Skype, it's free.

Cons

Broke my computer.

Summary

I don't even know how Microsoft manages this garbage... I let it update and how it's giving "not enough space to complete this action" errors constantly.
That is, after I had to re-install my video driver (how did they break that?) and I had to reinstall Google Chrome (stealthily destroying the competition or something?)
Each update I install causes more issues.

Why does this program need over half a gig of RAM just to sit idle??

"Unreliable, used to be a lot better"

May 16, 2015

 |  Version: Skype 7.4.0.102

Pros

Free
That is it really

Cons

Keeps dropping calls, unreliable connection.
I hate the fake ring when dialing out as I never know if the call is actually connected just not answered or indeed there is a connection error.
It is eating CPU and battery, my phone wound go flat in about an hour after being on Skype.

Summary

I have been using Skype for many years now and was completely satisfied up until a couple of years ago. I would gladly change to an alternative but unsure which one to pick as there doesn't seem to be a better one.

 |  Version: Skype 6.22.81.105

Pros

Skype is a good service on the computer.

Cons

but the Skype recommended hand held phone (Dualphone) has problems with it. It was a great phone when it first came on the market but the manufacturers refuse to update the software, They seem to take your money for the phone and then do not won't to know anymore.

Summary

Was a good product, but support from Skype & it's hardware team is dropping off.
Maybe worth looking at other VOIP providers.
