Hex Editor Neo Reviews
Hex Editor Neo is by far the most advanced Hex editing software available in the marketplace.
I have been a software developer for over 40 years. Hex Editor Neo is at the top of it's class. The functionality is amazing, and the documentation is superb. I would recommend it for any systems developer.
For over 25 years, I worked at Farwest Steel Corporation, a full-service steel company that supplied standard structural steel products and custom cut parts using CNC cutting machines. The interface to these machines included RS-232 serial connections along with ethernet-based delivery systems. I develop software for Microsoft products, and I still need to look under the covers to see what is happening. Thank you for providing a state-of-the-art hex editor.
I am a hobbyist, generally focused on restoring early DEC (PDP-8) and HP (2116C) minicomputers, mostly from the mid-1960s. Punched paper tape is a common input medium for these machines and being able to both archive existing tapes and recreate new tapes from archived binary files is an important part of preserving this legacy. Digital archives of the physical tapes also allow running the historic software with instruction level simulators.
A reliable and easy-to-use hex/octal editor is an essential tool for this sort of work. Since I am more often working to restore hardware and trouble shoot physical circuitry, I only need to use the editor infrequently and this makes it important that it is an easy tool to operate, configure and use without extensive relearning after being away from it for (long) periods of time.
I find the included tool set and well designed GUI provided by Neo Hex Editor meet my requirements very well and have convinced me to upgrade from the free edition to the Standard Edition. I believe the Structure Editor would also be a useful addition but not worth the additional investment at this time. If my focus becomes more software intensive, I expect I'll make the upgrade in the future.
As a closing note, the fact that I got a response to my questions about operation and features of the free edition within hours of posting to the support site was a strong factor in convincing me to support this product by purchasing a license rather than simply continue to use the entirely adequate free product.

Seems like I've used Hex Editor Neo for over 10 years now, its my go to tool for any data investigation. Its the tool I always wanted to write, but never had the time. It has everything imaginable, I've never felt the need to look for an alternative tool.

I have been using Free Hex Editor Neo for years now for my hobby projects. Mostly in microcontroller debugging, where I was analyzing the buffer content or change endiannes of the data block. Lately I started with sd card driver for mcu and I had to analyze the MBR and block content with what my driver is reading. Again Hex editor Neo came in handy, so I decided it is time to purchase the software as it is my go to software anyway.
I love your Hex Editor Neo Free Software. Most people have certain features in mind for the most common tasks, all of which you provide in your software for free.
Thanks for providing a wonderful piece of software that will always find a place in my software programming toolbox for personal use.
I'm satisfied with everything. I purchased the license out of my own pocket. Every single time I've used Neo, I am thankful for that decision.
It's saved me countless hours of work by letting me correct corrupted DTP files. This is just about the best software I've bought on my own.

Your editor is simply the best editor that I tried so far.
You are more responsive than any other software company I know. I am impressed.
Huge feature set - the swiss army knife of hex editors.
Beautiful program, and its FREE... I recommend it! ;)
Really, I didn't hope a support so efficient. Congratulations !!! I will evaluate other products by you in future.
Your Hex Editor software is amazing! It is PACKED full of features, updates itself, NEVER fails, provides EVERY feature you could possibly imagine for data manipulation and even has a FREE version! You guys build QUALITY software. I'm VERY impressed. (And yes, the overuse of caps was warranted. :)

Hex Editor Neo can be used by a Novis or Professional, and produce rapid troubleshooting and isolate hard to find bugs.
I completed a comparison of Hex Editor Neo against other HEX Editor and found it 'above reproach', and a top contender in selecting a tool for our next project.
Just wanted to say, i downloaded the free Neo the other day. It's absolutely gorgeous and SO wonderful to use. Some might accuse you of feature bloat but the design is so lovely how can anybody complain?
Many thanks for the very quick reply, excellent customer service and excellent product!
Just throwing some accolades your way, your hex editor is by far and away the best I have ever used after 20+ years reverse engineer.
Today I just upgraded. There is no way I'll step away from you great software.
I don't have to use it as much as before, but it's still a pleasure to use such a stable and efficient piece of software.
I'm extremely impressed with the functionality provided by Hex Editor Neo. This is probably the best hex editor I've ever used.

Nice program for investigating files :)
By the way, I'm using the Hex Editor as well - very intuitive usage, useful and user friendly.
Works fine and easy to use.
The software appears to be fully featured and extremely flexible.
I am impressed with your service and your product.
I had to change 1 byte in a 3.5GB file. Looks as an easy task but it is not if you do not have the right tool. I "googled" to find a suitable editor but none of them, incl. my favorite 'Hex Workshop' could do this task (OK, my Hex Workshop is old).
But when I found Free Hex Editor Neo and tried it I was very pleased to see that it could do it!
I downloaded HHD Hex Editor from your website today. I am very pleased with it. It works better than anything else I have tried. It's fast, efficient, and accurately manipulates data. I'll be keeping my eye out for future releases.
I downloaded your Hex editor and used it a few times. It was very stable, and just did what it claimed to.
It is not normal to have such a good support in a free product -sometimes, not even in a purchased one.
Thank you for your very good FREEWARE, hex editor (cool).

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the freeware hex editor. I'm not quite using it daily, but when I do need it, it's just the right tool for the job. I don't know what I'd do without it. Thanks!
I downloaded your free Hex Editor from download.com and I am very pleased with it, what a great piece of software! Thanks.
An interesting program - a novell interface.
I'm looking for something that can edit very large files, ie: >3Gb, and this certainly seems to fit the bill, quick loading & navigation so I'll add it to my shortlist.
To learn how use this program took few minutes. Its an easy program for other than the proffesionals, but still a very professional program. I have tried some other program, but I choose this one.
