    "Ehh...not spectacular."

    November 13, 2014  |   By Orange Fox

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 7.3.2

    Pros

    BoostSpeed has a nice, simple interface. Many useful tools optimize your computer, plus you have some extras like File Restorer or Windows theme customization options. Privacy options remove tracking cookies and other trackers. The Rescue center reverts any harmful changes done to your system.

    Cons

    VERY unstable and dangerous. Free version is locked down. There is even an entire category of BoostSpeed dedicated to indirect ads (buttons which install Auslogic's other PAID programs). There is a risk of system damage as there is with any optimization tool.

    Summary

    Great in terms of usefulness and look, but doesn't cut it for stability. My computer Blue-Screen-of-Deathed after I scanned and fixed some problems with my computer on Premium version. This program isn't really worth buying or using but it definitely grasps some good concepts. I liked how it has a File restorer that you can use to restore deleted files. Recommendation: Avoid this and use CCleaner or a similar program.

    "Thought it couldn't get any better, but it just did"

    September 2, 2014  |   By GR8person

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 7.1.1

    Pros

    Love the changes the made to the privacy tool. A couple of people in my family will be happy to see the changes in All Tools. All of the questions they used to ask me are now answered there, such as what the tool does, why do I need it and so on.

    Cons

    Not sure how I feel about the action center yet, have to use the new version a little longer to form an opinion. It may turn into a con for me...

    Summary

    I have used every BoostSpeed version Auslogics has released in the last few years and I must say that I really like this new release.

    "If you like malware, spyware and pop-ups then get this"

    August 19, 2014  |   By _Mystic_

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.6

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    It doesn't clean up everything after a scan/fix. Doing an immediate scan afterwards reveals hundreds into several thousand errors.

    Many self promoting and annoying pop-up ads for "The Newer Version!". IF YOU BUY A YEAR MEMBERSHIP DO NOT UPGRADE!!! You will lose the version you're using and can't get it back!

    It just fails at thoroughly cleaning and fixing errors.

    Summary

    I bought a year subscription for Boostspeed and have yet to run a scan, fix errors, run a scan immediately after and have zero errors. It has simply never happened. An immediate follow up scan reveals not just a few errors but hundreds and most of the time, for me, 1,500+ and as much as 3,000+. This software is a total fail on every level. Download and/or purchase at your own risk.

    "Why didn't I find it earlier?"

    April 28, 2014  |   By SmartBananas

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.5

    Pros

    Boost Speed is exactly what I was looking for!

    Cons

    It is perfect!

    Summary

    I went through a dozen installs/uninstalls of other system utilities... several system restores... one problem after another adding to the agony my two computers were already going through...and then I found Boost Speed! I am just happy I am able to type these words from my Windows 7 HP Pavillion laptop that had been practically near dead before I used Boost Speed on it.

    "Great program!"

    April 28, 2014  |   By Jessej80

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.5

    Pros

    I've used it on several different systems from Windows XP to now Windows 8.1 and it worked great on all.
    You can back up with this program before you do anything with it, which I used to do religiously prior to every cleanup... not anymore :)
    Has a lot of additional features, some of which I didn't think I'd ever use, but ended up using at one point or another.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but I wish they'd include an antivirus in Boostspeed. That would make it all I need for PC care.

    Summary

    I have been using this program since 2012, when I upgraded from Auslogic's free Defrag. This is by far the best optimizer out there.
    No wonder CNET rates it Spectacular - it truly is!

    "Registry Damaged; System Restore Was Needed"

    April 20, 2014  |   By techiesitemaker

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.5

    Pros

    - Nice Looking
    - Cleaning Was Okay
    - A lot of features
    - Most of them work well
    - Internet Is Faster

    Cons

    - Registry completely messed up by Auslogics BootSpeed
    - Had to do System Restore to go to the internet
    - A big pain

    Summary

    I will probably never use the "Registry Cleaner" again, while other features are very nice, it's hard to trust software that messes up the computer.

    "Better than IObit"

    April 14, 2014  |   By hamed_206

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.3

    Pros

    IObit failed 10 times to repair my hard disk errors. Auslogics done this easy and nice. Also the Auslogics disk defrag is away much better than Smart Defrag from IObit.

    Cons

    Fastest, easiest disk defrag on the plant!

    Best optimizing tool around, all other tools are doing nothing and playing up with your PC.

    "Excellent program"

    April 6, 2014  |   By mecpooler

    Version: Auslogics BoostSpeed 6.5.3

    Pros

    One of only a hand full of system utility suites that actually work with Windows 8.1 well. Does exactly what it claims it does.

    Cons

    None I know of

    Summary

    If you run Windows 8 or 8.1 I recommend you use this program.
