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.

"A good program that can no longer be recommended."

September 28, 2011  |  By AxFleming1

 |  Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.1.1

Pros

Does a very nice job of configuring internet settings.

Cons

As of 9/28/2011 they are using Internet Monetizer installer to try to trick you into installing some crappy youtube installer.
Who knows what other tricks they have decide to hide in their app. Very sad.

Summary

It was good until they decided to try to trick their loyal customers.

"Fast defragmenter, not quite as thorough as Windows."

September 23, 2011  |  By gamedad94928

 |  Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.1.1

Pros

I love how fast this defragmenter can defrag a hard drive, even the worse hard drives are much quicker to defrag with this than with the built in Windows defrag. I also love the ability to schedule it to run whenever you wish. nice progress indicator

Cons

Not quite as thorough as the Windows defrag (win XP, Much better than Vista's, not sure Win 7), I use this to perform a quick clean up in Win XP, but in Vista this is the only defrag tool I use, the built in one has no progress indicator, this does.

Summary

I prefer this defragmenter over any other I have tried including Diskeeper, Sysinternals, Defraggler, etc...I have tested several.
This one is quick and efficient, runs smoothly even on the worse computers, has a nice progress indicator that you can actually click on a red sector and see exactly what file is fragmented. I love the ability to schedule it to run in the middle of the night while I am sleeping so my computer is zippy fast the next day for work. Works well with CleanUp! I usually perform a cleanup with the CleanUp! utility and then let Auslogic do the rest for me and once in a while I use the Windows defrag for a more thorough defrag (except Win Vista). Great job to the developer/s!!!

"Great software,keep up the good work Auslogs."

September 22, 2011  |  By JimExcel

 |  Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.1.1

Pros

Safe and fast.

Cons

Nothing that I can think of.

Summary

I learned of Auslogics BoostSpeed from CNET a few years back and have never looked back after my purchase. The interface is easy to navigate, updates are "productive" and not just cosmetic. Our computer is shared by 4 people and yes, BoostSpeed is a big reason why our computer has not been replaced after 4 years of service. BoostSpeed performs as advertised and does it all simply and hassle-free! This is one product I never hesitate to recommend nor do I hesitate to renew my subscription, BoostSpeed delivers!

"I'm Disappointed."

September 15, 2011  |  By ComeToPass

 |  Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.1.1

Pros

Well It's Auslogics...

Cons

But The Trial Ain't What It's Cracked Up To Be

Summary

I would like to write a review about how great a product Auslogics is, but the misrepresentation of a fully functional 15 day trial Ruined that. I've used this on other computers in the past, and it was a decent program. Those were also different versions and the trials came unhampered. This one allows the repair of a Whopping 15 Errors a day! Here's the kicker: After running the 2nd scan, I decided to run a couple different optimizers including SlimCleaner, and 360 Amigo followed by Another scan with BoostSpeed to compare. Auslogics found ONE error after running cleanup with those.
