Doesn't work well with 7-Zip

Simply stops compressing with no error or warning when using 7-Zip. Worked successfully with Zip when compressing an 8GB Virtual Machine directory. Took several hours to compress the 8GB test on a MacBook Pro with a 2.8Ghz Core i7 on an SSD drive. When using Zip, it was able to compress down to 4.6GB. Using BetterZip, the compression was much better (and faster) using 7-Zip. The 7-Zip compression yeilded a file of only 3.27GB in size (29% smaller). The interface is pretty simplistic with crowded preferences which would be better served by separating options into separate tabs. For the money, for password protected Zips, I think it's probably worth the cost. However BetterZip performs better and has a more complete interface but BetterZips price makes it a very poor value.

Not the best

I'd go with BetterZip instead of this one. The user interface layout is blatantly copied, and BetterZip came first. In addition, Betterzip supports more filetypes (.isos, for instance). Finally, BetterZip has much better looking icons for compressed files. It does everything it says, but there's a much better option.

A very useful tool

I use this all the time. My only complaint is regarding dragging and dropping of folders to the desktop. It never drops them where I put them, but instead puts them on the right below the last icon/item that was placed there, or in between other items if there was a space available. As I commonly use two or three screens, it means I need to hide all my windows first before I can open the folder, rather than being able to open it from where I dropped it.

Other than that, I'm very happy with iPack overall.
