It handles dozens of formats (included RAR5), it got also a stable x64 version, and the compression time (or rate) improves with every release. I love it!

To be clear, it can decompress RAR files, but not create them.

Much better than standard Zip for compression. If you compress plain text files such as HTML use the PPMd method rather than standard LZMA, which is better suited to other file types.

No recovery/parity. There needs to be improvements for long term archiving.

Much preferred over WinRAR as it doesn't complain you haven't given it money. Beginner users can still use 7-Zip, but advanced users with get much more out of it.
