Editors' review

You can view graphic and numeric displays of your hard-disk temperature, but this program's controls aren't always effective. HDD Temperature Monitor sits in the system tray and is simple to use. You can elect to receive warnings and alarms at certain temperatures. The default is 60 degrees for a warning and 70 degrees for an alarm. However, in our tests the temperature monitor wouldn't stay on top even when that setting was chosen. It's also a bit hard to see, even at minimum transparency, though changing the colors of the monitor helps. This application claims to run on both Windows 2000 and XP, but in testing it only worked on the latter. Despite some flaws in this programs settings, it's easy enough for anyone to use to monitor hard-disk temperature.

    "Outdated and ugly"

    July 12, 2011   |   By ArgusMonitor

    Version: HDD Temperature Monitor 1.2

    Pros

    - works (for some HDDs at least)

    Cons

    - works for only 30 days
    - is not being sold anymore -- so no way to extend trial period
    - much better alternatives available (e.g. Argus Montor)

    Summary

    HDD Temperature Monitor is an outdated tool, which is neither sold nor supported by the manufacturer anymore. Therefore it can only be used during the 30 days trial period.

    If you are looking for an alternative solution, updated regularly, you might have a look at the most comprehensive tool out there, have a look at ArgusMonitor, which I can highly recommend (it's not free though, but they also offer a 30-day trial). If don't want to pay, then you can try out SpeedFan, which can also read SMART values (wherein the HDD temperature is contained).
