7-ZIP STILL SUCK ON COMPRESSION! Better use the winzip or stuffit format!
Toggle Commented May 5, 2011 on Revisiting 7-ZIP at Coding Horror
Hi Guys! A nice post here! I like your comments! I used all the compression format available on the web because i got a 12kb upload speed, so for upload I need to compress the data! My hardware is a Acer Aspire One Netbook, 1.6ghz, 2gb Ram, And 160gb Harddisk. Tested this on a image folder of 74.9mb. contain only jpeg My own comparison are: 7-Zip format is good but doesn't compress below 98percent.Very slow on compress but fast to decompress. All other format in 7-zip is very slow.Same compression as winzip legacy format.Depends on different hardware's and people needs. Zip legacy format is fast but not much difference to the original file.(70.4mb) Zip Zipx new format is fast and the compression is very good.(68mb) Stuffit SITX format is memory eater but compression is second in list to KGB Archiver(65mb), I used it on most files like 80mb very reduced to aprox 50mb. Winrar is best compression not much change to the file and can be compare to zip legacy format. Now, my conclusion after this is zip legacy AND 7-zip is the best for uploaders or any client, receiver because the person receiving the files do not need to buy winrar and stuffit license! USE 7-Zip archiver format is zip!
