Auslogics BoostSpeed

CNET Editors' review

BoostSpeed is an effective all-encompassing utility suite, combining some of Auslogics' popular freeware titles such as Disk Defrag and Registry Defrag with services that they don't offer elsewhere. There's an uninstall manager, a startup manager for boot cycle customizations, RAM and browser optimizers, file shredder, DirectX diagnostic, Windows tweak manager, and several mini apps to manage Windows settings. It also comes with a rescue center that can back up any settings before you change them. No doubt, BoostSpeed gives you your money's worth, at least in terms of services provided. Upgrading also only costs $10, for those who own older versions.

Are they all worth paying for? That depends on what kind of user you are. Most, if not all, of these features are available as freeware from one vendor or another, and generally one in each category is top-notch or nearly so. Some of the lesser tools, like the tweaks manager and the security feature, didn't live up to our expectations. Tweaks focused on basic functions and wouldn't serve as a replacement for TweakUI, while the security feature merely let me know that we had up-to-date security apps installed. Still, the convenience of having all these tools located under one umbrella was hard to argue with, and even the tools that didn't impress did their jobs hitch-free.

Scan speeds for the features new to us included here were comparable with those in Disk Defrag. Users also got the convenience of optionally setting the program to run at startup and live in the system tray, making most of the program's functionality no more than a context-menu click away. The most useful tools are the Disk Defrag, the RAM optimizer, the Registry Optimizer--if you believe that "optimizing" the Registry is more than snake oil--the file shredder, and the performance monitor. The 15-day trial comes unfettered, allowing you to thoroughly judge if this is a program you want.

    "It is OK, I guess?!?!"

    October 2, 2010  |   By gord8166

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.0.4.235

    Pros

    I can,t give it a bad rating , because it does what it says it will do.

    Cons

    I have freeware that does the same thing. BoostSpeed found nothing wrong with my computer. Like the old saying : Why buy the cow when you can get the milk free!!!

    Summary

    You can spend your money on this, or you can do some research and get it all free!!
    Just go to Gizmo.com

    "Works Well"

    September 27, 2010  |   By tigront

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.0.4.235

    Pros

    Does what it say, it keeps your pc cleaned up.

    Cons

    none so far.

    Summary

    Its a great program and that fact that when you buy it you can load it on up to 3 pc's is a plus.

    "SLOW & doesn't fix all the errors without purchase!!"

    September 20, 2010  |   By 1ramzel

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.0.4.235

    Pros

    Not seeing any...other than it is FREE.

    Cons

    Doesn't fix all the errors without full PURCHASE.

    Summary

    After waiting an eternity to scan my computer, I clicked fix (or whatever it says, possibly repair). A message appears and says that it has fixed 200 errors, but to fix the other 800, I must buy the full version...NOPE, NOT going to do it. Checking for disk errors with Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.0.4.235 is MUCH slower than other freeware! My computer is worse off than if I use another freeware program. I suggest others do the same.

    "The best of the best!"

    September 18, 2010  |   By jda30

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.0.4.235

    Pros

    This is the all encompassing utility that you have been looking for! I've used every other top rated speed and repair program their is. This is "THE" one.

    Cons

    None, it is worth 5 times the price all day long.

    Summary

    I could talk forever about the REAL improvements that this program will make. You really have to try it for yourself to see all of the things that Boost Speed can do. It contains at least 18 different utilities to repair and improve the performance of your computer. With it's easy to use interfaces, I guarantee you can spend a full day enjoying this program, and seeing where ALL of the other so called "optimizers" fell way way short. You will delete all imitators within the first 10 minutes.

    "excellent all in one"

    September 12, 2010  |   By rstwolf

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.0.4.235

    Pros

    i like the system advisor and the interaction with it. it explains well what it does and lets me choose everything to best fit my needs.

    Cons

    it doesn't find so many errors in registry like others.
    it's a very customizable program but this can confuse some less experienced users.

    Summary

    i strongly recomend it. also it does comparing clean with ccleaner and you can schedule jobs. for the registry you can use a more effective registry cleaner side by side.
