OK so i'm looking to buy some bandwidth shaper software since i'm frequently limited on bandwidth and don't have a reliable Internet connection at home. NetLimiter and NetBalancer seem to be the most obvious choices, but which is better, in terms of features, functionality, full compatibility with Windows 8, etc. I also would like to know the upsides and downsides of each program, and whether either has features that the other doesn't have, and, if so, which ones. I tried the trial version of NL about 6 months ago on win7 ultimate x64 and it froze my computer at random times for no apparent reason. I did a little research recently and found that the issue was most likely me trying to run bittorrent/p2p apps and NL at the same time, which seems to cause issues for some people. I also read that it has something to do with NL's built-in firewalling functions either being enabled or not. Also, it states on the NL website that there will be a win8 compatible version probably released sometime this month, whereas the NB website already claims to havbe win8 compatibility.
So, who has any experience using these programs (please don't reply if you've never used either). what are your opinions? both cost the same, just want informed opinions from other users first.
Thanks for any help/advice!
