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.

    "Great All In One solution"

    April 23, 2013  |   By erichJohn

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.5.1

    Pros

    very easy to use. user friendly interface, and it works !

    Cons

    could be cheaper ...

    Summary

    i installed this on my mom's computer because she lives far away and i can't always be there when problems occur. in a nutshell, it works very well; totally as described. rids computer of duplicate files, cleans up the registry etc. computer runs and starts-up much better. i went ahead and put it on my computer and all is well. Highly recommended, esp for those not computer savy when it comes to repairing OS related headaches.

    "The Best on the Market!"

    April 9, 2013  |   By Russdb705

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.5.1

    Pros

    Most complete on the market and will not damage your computer, these idiots that say they lost all are, well morons. At default settings no worries, with all items checked--NO WORRIES. I don't see how anyone can lose anything, unless it is the Duplicate File remover which I don't use. Excellent product!

    Cons

    None to speak of.

    Summary

    Most complete: Disc Cleaner, Disc Defrag, Duplicate File Cleaner (only one I don't use), System Tweaker, Registry Cleaner, Registry Defrag, Privacy Eraser, File Shredder, Wipe Free Space, File Recovery, Internet Optimizer.

    I purchased for $14.95 @ http://store.downloadcrew.com/p18832-auslogics_boostspeed_5

    Regular $52.00

    "TOTALLY DESTROYED MY HARD DRIVE AND DATA"

    February 24, 2013  |   By sethandtom

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 5.5.1

    Pros

    Absolutely none.

    Cons

    I purchased this monstrosity for $49.99. It looked great at first. However, after using it (following instructions to the letter, I might add), I rebooted it only to find out that it had deleted my start-up system. Upon taking it to a repair shop, I was informed that it had deleted my entire Windows Operating System. Moreover, 40,000 songs and 18,000 pictures I had downloaded in the past 9 years were all gone - forever. So to clean my computer from the mess Speed Boost caused cost me another $250.00.
    I never write reviews, but I URGE and IMPLORE anyone who's considering buying this shoddy crap to not do it!!!
    I'm waiting to see if I get a refund from Auslogics, which I highly doubt.
