"It is just not what I expected."

November 17, 2009  |  By WmRobt.es

 |  Version: HDD Observer 3.4.2

Pros

Easy to install and setup. Has not caused any known conflicts with other parts of this system.

Cons

It gives me the impression that I should replace all my hard disks. This is a new computer, less than a month old, and I have difficulty believing that the three, two internal S-ATAs and one external S-ATA.were used or that I have abused them at all.

Summary

I have not taken the time to look at other softwares in the same category but I do plan on removing HDD Observer 3.4.2 as soon as I can.

"Good utility - but nagware"

December 23, 2007  |  By ninja660

 |  Version: HDD Observer 1.8

Pros

Cool display/graphics - neat looking utility

Cons

Nagware - only gives 29 days to check out. Also annoying 'please register' display from tray icon when installed - hard to dismiss. Also installs extra baggage (2005 Microsoft C++ redistributable files.) If you like bells & whistles this is fun/pretty to look at. Otherwise can get same info from freeware utilities.

"Really great software; easy to use. "

November 03, 2007  |  By DMSM2

 |  Version: HDD Observer 1.5.1

Pros

- Lots of information shown at the home screen. (Shows Performance, Health, Temperature, and General Status on one selected hard drive at a time)

- Easy to use

- Great Interface

- Has a Disk Defrag and Disk Cleaner

- Also has a Regestry Defrag and Regestry Cleaner

- Hard drive activity is shown by a dock icon (VERY bottom left of screen where time is) shown by a small purple disk; the faster it spins the more HDD activity is going on

Cons

- Only detects a maximum of two hard drives at a time

- Defrag activity is shown by a grid with different colored boxes representing different things however there is no key so you don't know what certain colors represent

- Reviews sounded like it had it's own version of a disk checking utility but it dosen't

- If HDD Observer says your hard drive has "Bad Health" ; there isn't really anything you can do about it (once again, has no disk checking utility)
