    "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)
