    WinRAR, the infamous or famous extractor (depending on who you talk to). It is very good, and worth the money to some, however not to others, me being one of those others.
    WinRAR Pros:
    Excellent speed
    Icons for extractable files
    Decent install size

    WinRAR Cons:
    The cost is a little high
    Odd UI navigation
    Free version is a little annoying to use
    7zip, the less known, but well praised extractor. I came across 7zip looking for an alternative to WinRAR. For me, it's very well put together for something that doesn't make much revenue.
    7zip Pros:
    Free, of course
    Excellent speed (however a tad bit slower than WinRAR)
    7zip drop-down in right-click menu

    7zip Cons:
    A little slower than WinRAR in bigger extractions (1GB+)
    UI is "primitive" compared to WinRAR
    UI also can clutter your deskstop when extracting files

    7zip Dependables:
    The UI generally is better or worse than WinRAR
    Archive building options (what I mean by this is it's got a lot of features for archive building, and it can look a little intimidating to a lot of users, but some people do like the options.)
    Proprietary archive format (*.7z)
