Editors' Review

A well-done screensaver can have a surprisingly big impact, letting you imagine--however briefly--that you're not actually stuck in a cubicle, but are in a relaxing, bucolic setting. 3 Free Dancing Fountains Screen Saver seeks to transport viewers by superimposing digitally created fountains on three attractive still images. The effect is not entirely realistic, but the screensaver isn't a bad choice for fountain fans.

Once installed, the program appears in the Windows Display Properties menu with all of the other screensavers. We thought that the screensaver might have some settings--perhaps to adjust the speed or pattern of the fountains--but it didn't. Nor does 3 Free Dancing Fountains come with sounds, which is unfortunate, given how relaxing the sound of water can be. The screensaver is actually pretty bare-bones; there are images of a large rock, a castle, and the St. Louis skyline, each with a body of water in front and digital fountains spouting out of it. The fountains do create some interesting patterns and they're soothing to look at, but overall, the screensaver isn't anything to write home about. Again, people who are particularly into fountains might like this screensaver, but others will likely prefer options that are more attractive or interesting. The program has a link to an online help file but the Web site doesn't actually seem to exist; still, we can't really fault a screensaver for not having a help file.

3 Free Dancing Fountains Screen Saver can be installed and uninstalled without problems.

"Not so much...Can't change settings in Free version..."

November 11, 2011  |  By Wrath_Alexander

 |  Version: 3 Free Dancing Fountains Screensaver 1.1

Pros

The background pictures are beautiful.

Cons

The free version does not give you the ability to change any settings, and for me that is a BIG problem.
The original settings for the free version only seemed to want to flash in and out, hurting my eyes and making my computer look like it's trying to give me a seizure.

Summary

Could be great for you...if you like the basic free version, but if you like options, this is not for you.

November 14, 2010  |  By Tallemu

 |  Version: 3 Free Dancing Fountains Screensaver 1.1

Pros

I didnt like it at all

Cons

It just kept restarting and the fountains did nothing

Summary

Downloaded on Vista Home Premium SP2 it started fine but after that it just kept flashing on the desktop and that was that its a bit hard really to rate something that dosent seem to work but with a bit more development it might be fine

Thank God, I went to the add/remove programs and easily removed it.
