Critical reception

STDU Viewer was appreciated for its feature to read a wide range of ebook formats and can be considered as a replacement to Adobe’s reader.[5][9]

The program doesn't support online help CHM files, LIT,[5] DOC, and HTML.[12] When printing PDF document, a large temporary file is created, so the printing process is slow.
