Working well  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I'm computer savvy but a dirt beginner at ham radio. I tried several other logging programs including DXKeeper (that seems to be reviewed very well here). Each one had strange glitches or serious usability problems.
BBlogger installed easily. So far things are intuitive; I'm just a beginner so what I want to do is easily log my QSO's and be able to go back and look at them later. So far BBlogger does that really well (better than several others).
PRICELESS are the little additions--things like the world maps with regions/areas/call prefixes. Having all that in one place is just great.
I'll come back and review this again once I've had more experience. But I think there's value in knowing when a first-time experience for a beginning user is really positive.

Didn't like it  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have just recently discovered this one and decided to give it a try. The very first impression was awesome - nice interface, easy and intuitive, everything appears to be in place. All in a very compact design. Simply wonderful.

The first problem I have encountered started after I imported my current log (over 95,000 QSOs) into BBLogger. First it took ages to import ADIF file (over 1 hour). Then I restarted BBLogger and again, I had to wait over 15 minutes till it crunches all data. PC reboot didn't help - same old story, it takes forever to start BBLogger.

The second problem I had with BBCAT. Yes, it uses OmniRig as an interface to my radio, but simply starting CAT control creates most weird behavior of my radio. After you start it it tunes your radio to some other frequency, sometimes outside Ham bands.

I could have been doing something wrong, but I tried to closely follow the User Manual, and I was still getting the same results. Too bad. So I gave up after a couple of days trying. Just another reminder - the free cheese is only in the mousetrap..

Straight, simple and free  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I want to write few words about this tool as it really deserve some attention. I tried many solutions on line and very popular and much more elaborated tools. Finally I tried out this and simple, so straightforward, no useless gadgets nor thousands of windows.
It is fully integrated QRZ, EQSL, ClubLog, LOTW and will keep your logs real time updated..not to mention the award management capabilities.
Well, finally what I needed was already available (and for free) nothing more to say.

If I can give my friendly suggestion do not wait to test BBLogger.

works, and works well  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I tried DX Lab/DX Keeper,and could never get it to install be fair, the problem could have been all my fault...out of frustration, I just gave up on it. Then I thought I'd try BB installed and runs perfectly. It took awhile to figure out, for example, how to reinstall a backup log after a computer crash. But, it does everything I want a computer log to do, and it does it all simply and reliably... also,the updates come on nearly a daily basis. All this, and it is FREE! So, it has earned a 5 rating from me.

It's something!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I had used it for a couple of months. Maybe that's due to mere log aversion. The program itself is fine. Works perfectly, it is under development and gets better and better over time. There is a ham community where to post questions... the program is free... what else? Well, for example I would like a log with a nicer layout that fully integrates with all the programs such as HRD, Digipan etc etc, no matter what program is. The program is intuitive to use in a basic mode but it is a complex one if you want to get the most of it, in my modest and biased opinion.
