    "Work as promised"

    October 24, 2012  |   By Casanovan

    Version: Gizmo Central 2.7.9

    Pros

    It also comes with Gizmo manager (optional). It worked perfectly when I burned an ISO-file, which you can do without mounting.

    Cons

    It put it selves back in the startup all the time. A bit annoying.

    "Admirable philosophy behind creation, caused problems."

    February 23, 2012  |   By jortony

    Version: Gizmo Central 2.7.9

    Pros

    The creation of free software is great, I really appreciate these types of tools being created and distributed for free. Their benefits are greater than the collective loss of revenue. I can see by the other tools available in this bundle that the author has similar interests as me, and while it didn't work for me, I hope it it works for others.

    Cons

    I do have an eclectic Win7 installation, so please weigh this information appropriately.
    Opening the manager feature hung my graphics display and on restart. I have screen flicker in secondary monitor (win7x64 installation). Flicker is persistent after uninstallation. This screen flicker was a previous problem for me which required lengthy and extensive driver un/re/installs and software migration. None of the original pathogenic software (amd overdrive and company) is currently being used, and so I am back to square one with a eye catching flicker until I am successful.

    Summary

    Did not function for me, and broke some fixes I had applied to my machine. I couldn't use the software without my GUI functioning, so I can't comment further.

    "Plain and simply awesome"

    December 16, 2011  |   By imjuscrazy

    Version: Gizmo Central 2.7.9

    Pros

    It's free, allows mounting of ISOs AND VHDs. All the other features like someone above mentioned are just the icing on the cake. Did I mention it's free? As for the restart before use....almost if not ALL virtual cd drive utilities require a reboot before you can mount. It's not really a con specific to this one at all...that's just how it is. No fees, no annoying UPGRADE TO PRO messages. It's free and functional software.

    Cons

    I have no real qualms whatsoever with it.

    Summary

    Overall I would recommend this to anyone. I've been using a couple of other tools in the past to mount ISOs and such, but this takes the cake. I'm making the switch to this as my freeware ISO mounting software (finally an easy solution for mounting my vhd's).
