    Another vote for Stuffit Expander. It used to come with Macs, but hasn't since Tiger.

    +1 for MacPAR Deluxe. Great little app to handle RARs and PAR2s. It's just been updated to allow setting a different location for expanding RAR archives. Great for those huge MKVs :rolleyes:

    Opening RAR files should be easy, which is why I use UnRarX. It opens when I double-click a RAR file, opens it and then closes, couldn't be easier.

    BetterZip

    I like BetterZip. That said, it's a full-featured archiver/unarchiver that supports multiple formats and costs $20. If all you want to do is extract RAR files, then I would agree with the many here that suggest UnRarX.
