    I use Irfan View and I find it perfect for my needs. No need to change it.

    Faststone - completely satisfied so never really tried Irfanview or anything else.

    I have used both Irfanview and Faststone (the former for many years), but have recently found this, I'm not sure if I should call it a gem yet, Zoner Photo Studio, of which I am currently using the free edition. I did a quick test by loading a 200MB Hubble jpg (so a very complex compressed image) in a couple of viewers and Zoner was 4-5 times faster in rendering (cca 3-4 sec on my rather poweful system) than the next best. It is also blazingly fast on launching, the GUI loads in an instant, very unusual for a Windows app. And it has a native x64 version.
    In short, I had to switch to it.

    I've tried others but always go back to IrfanView. It's not perfect, but overall it's a great viewer. :)
