The Epoch Times (US)
"[CorelDRAW Graphics Suite] remains one of the most user-friendly applications in its category on the market."
"The latest version is much more complete and finely tued than previous releases. It has several new additions, yet retains the ease of use that made CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 a true pleasure to use."
"Where Corel's design products shine is in streamlined workflow and an easy to use and learn interface."
"Corel includes nearly all the resources a user needs to get started in the field, from stock images to tutorials and guides of nearly every shape and form."
"The value of the extra content alone more than covers the cost of the application."
PC Plus (UK)
"Yes - and more. This is a home-run-and-the-crowd-goes-wild release that every CorelDraw user will want."
"If you already push the software to its limits, it's the day-to-day changes that will impact you the most. And, boy, is X5 chock to the gills with them."
"While the new features will hook you in, you'll be discovering and enjoying the hundreds of small improvements for months to come. At the very least, download the free trial - you get to try the full feature set for 30 days, and we think you'll wish, like us, that every CorelDraw release was this good."
