    7zip will give better compression when packing files. It is compatible with RARs - and is free. WinRAR is (imo) very user friendly though.

    I like winrar as well , my only problem is the dummies packing the files . Be nice in a perfect world to have a standard for say movie format .

    Winrar and winzip are both professional pieces of software. It is impossible to keep compressing something without losing some of the original data, otherwise all compressed files would be 1 byte in length.

    If you had a 3.5GB .iso zipped down to 250kb (or even as I suspect 250MB) then it must have had a LOT of repeated data. If that's the case then either the .iso was poorly ripped or it would suggest the game creators wanted to bump up the size to make you think you were getting more than you really were.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
