Editors' Review

+

3D Realistic Fireplace Screen Saver provides users with a fairly lifelike fireplace on their screen. While simple to operate, the program's options are what makes it red hot.

The interface is so intuitive that users will not need a trip to the Help file, though it is available if necessary. The program is well labeled and all the options make perfect sense. We had no trouble navigating it and customizing our flames. We were pleased by the fireplace and how easy it was to set up. While it will not fool anyone into thinking your computer is on fire, it does a good job of avoiding cartoonish imagery. The logs are deteriorating to cinder, the flames leap randomly, and the program excels with the little touches like sparks and ash floating upward with the smoke. In addition, the sound does a decent job of imitating the crackle of flames. While it makes a charming screensaver, this program's real strength is in its features. Users have full control over the look of the fire, the smoke, the glow, the fireplace appearance, and more. Each is simple to operate and easily previewed with a small preview screen on the Options menu.

The program comes with a stingy, one-fireplace trial. Still, with a fairly realistic image and fantastic options, this program is a fun option for those who want to add a little spark to their screensaver.

"Not Realistic At All"

November 17, 2012  |  By TC141

 |  Version: 3D Realistic Fireplace Screen Saver 3.9.4

Pros

No stability issues, seems not to interfere with other programs

Cons

Graphics are poor, malware loaded on

Summary

NAV did away with the spyware no problem, but be aware it's there. Grahics are poor, and while options are many, none improve it very much.

Not free, and they don't tell you until you've already installed it. Don't download.

"Buy now banner"

January 04, 2012  |  By sot65

 |  Version: 3D Realistic Fireplace Screen Saver 3.9.2.5

Pros

If it was as you, CNET Editor say, a normal screensaver for normal people, evaluation version, 1 fireplace only then the graphics are good, cozy

Cons

But it's not. An ad keeps appearing effectively destroying the "evaluation". What is there to evaluate? One ad during and one ad after you close it. Eh, nice ads, bravo.

A good laugh.

It wasn't realist or 3D at all. It tried to install something else but I declined. You can't full screen without buying it not that you would want to.

Don't bother downloading.

"Interesting for about 60 seconds"

January 01, 2011  |  By drfillgood

 |  Version: 3D Realistic Fireplace Screen Saver 3.9.2.3

Pros

Lots of controls to alter the look of the flame.

Cons

Still looks like a cheap fireplace animation. Crackling sound quickly gets annoying. Slow to load. Constantly asking for money.

Summary

I'm really not sure what they feel looks "realistic" about this fireplace screensaver. Realistic animation maybe, but it neither looks nor sounds like a real fire.

"Does not work on Win7 64-bit i7 Quad Core mega-PC"

December 18, 2010  |  By Seekers7

 |  Version: 3D Realistic Fireplace Screen Saver 3.9.2.3

Pros

Easy to download

Cons

Never ran properly. Locked up when trying to access the options. After several minutes and launching another screen saver, all I got was the roaring fire sound in the background that was very difficult to kill.

Summary

Beware that this product may not work properly in its "free" mode.
