Editors' Review

With flat-screen monitors taking over workstations, screensavers aren't so important as they once were. However, they still have a place and appeal to many users.

Amazing Universe Premium launches a colorful starscape with planets, moons, asteroids, nebulae, and other materials stretched across the cosmos, rendered with excellent detail for a crisp, almost super-real resolution. In particular, science-fiction fans looking for a visual sense of wonder will appreciate this screensaver. There are no rockets, flying saucers, or manmade items; although, a few cheesy-looking comets did flit across the screen rather frequently.

This screensaver performed well during our tests. We were able to adjust the timing for it to launch, turn on or off its accompanying music, and set the resolution and color depth. However, we were disappointed that we couldn't adjust the speed at which items moved in the animation: a slower speed than the default would, we thought, have appeared more majestic and tranquil, but that's a subjective opinion from us. Other than the cheesy comets, we were pleased with this free utility, and we think most other users will agree.

    Version: Amazing Universe Premium 1.0

    Pros

    The screenshot lured me in.

    Cons

    Scary, scary terms and conditions.

    Summary

    I briefly glanced at the terms and conditions. You are agreeing to let them share your personal information. You are agreeing to let them sling multiple forms of advertising at you. It may not have spyware in the traditional sense but I would prefer that over spam and pop ups. At least you can delete spyware and be done with it. The stuff they have will just haunt you.
