    "The Topic, I would like to see Top instead of Best, best implies better than all other, while Top infers greater than best. The main point leaves a lot of info out, what if a novice was to come up this intro, they may not know what you are referring to. A simplified language might be helpful in selling a Windows based FTP server. You have a link to a youtube video, why could you embed the youtube video in the opening of the page, then there will be no room for mistakes in downloading and using the application. The Viewing the Solution page is a very busy page, it could be more simplified."

    "FTP servers are a useful tool, but it can be hard to get them set up properly. Windows ISS is a source of helpful tools, scripts, and downloads, that you can use (as I did!) to help me make the most of my FTP server. "

    "Started using Titan because it's recommended by Cisco to back up their call manager suite. It's worked flawlessly for 4 years. Recently started using some of the automation that's built in, so that we can send notifications when backups complete, rotate old backups to offsite storage, etc. Its worked so well that we will be implementing a second server for automating some other processes."

    "It's worth considering some of the web-based alternatives, like Monsta FTP (disclaimer: I'm involved with this) They save you having to install software on every device; instead you do it all through your browser, with the same features as any desktop client."

    "The solution link goes directly to the resource site. The program that is available for download seems like a good program, but the site is highly cluttered and offers little information about the application or general use of the program. Information about the specifics of the program are on the site, but are difficult to interpret by those who are not familiar with this type of program. "
