Editors' review

Users obsessed with the correct time will like the number of options for setting their system's clock. Atomic Clock Service's basic dialog interface takes seconds to learn. Novice users will appreciate that four buttons perform all functions. Most won't need a Help file, which is good because the Help button doesn't do anything.

Operating Atomic Clock Service manually means choosing a Time Server from a default list of 18. Press Synchronize Now and the app churns for a few seconds as it contacts the server and sets your system time. The program does seem slow when attempting to contact an offline server. However, it's easy to set the maximum number of attempted tries on the options dialog. It's as easy to set the app to automatically sync time daily, on start-up, hourly, or only on demand. Automatic syncing is disabled in the demo.

Users who like to stay slightly ahead can have the app automatically add a selected number of minutes or seconds each time is synchronizes. Users who are happy with the default Windows sync service won't need this app, but those who demand always perfect time will find Atomic Clock Service useful.

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Set and forget. All PC time will be strong.
    I use it in office (10 copy) under XP. Many my colleagues do not have
    administrative rigts and can not set PC time. We need more synchronizing
    that XP gives us.
