    "HMonitor is Crapware. Run!"

    December 12, 2012   |   By cnuser987

    Version: HMonitor 4.5.3.1

    Pros

    Installed easily.

    Cons

    Produces totally bogus results:
    Core=+3.89V
    Aux=+3.84V
    +3.3V=+x.xxV
    +5V=+x.xxV
    +12V=+xx.xxV
    -12V=-xx.xxV

    Summary

    When I made the mistake of asking for help I was repeatedly insulted by what appears to be Seldon Cooper on Big Bang Theory. I made the blunder of paying up front, and when I asked for a refund I got this:
    As for refund - you have enough time to test the program BEFORE purchasing the license.
    And, remember, by sending data for the registration, you have EXPLICITLY CONFIRMED that

    "Doesnt see my laptops fans, but has basic monitors."

    June 15, 2011   |   By CWBOU812

    Version: HMonitor 4.5.2.2

    Pros

    It does have basic monitoring of some PC temperatures.

    Cons

    On my Toshiba Qosmio it didnt see any of the internal fans, or voltages, so there was no way it could control the fans.

    Summary

    This is probably a good program for a regular PC for controlling fans, monitoring voltages, and temperatures. And even though it wont control my laptop fans, it still can be a good temperature monitor. 3/5 stars.

    "Bad Long term deal"

    June 08, 2011   |   By silhouett

    Version: HMonitor 4.5.1.3

    Pros

    Software works great

    Cons

    customer service is BAD

    Summary

    Can not use product since re-installed software.
    I recently re-installed windows 7 on the machine I use hmonitor on. When I went to use the hmonitor software I entered my key code and it said it was not for this machine. I wrote an email to support@hmonitor.com and that is when the real problem came in. The gentleman that I delt with told me I needed to use the email I used with my paypal account and no further emails would be accepted from this one. I then wrote using the email I use at paypal and the same man told me I needed to send my info to register@hmonitor.com which I then did but the mail server bounced it saying it was invalid. I wrote the support again and was told they could not help me with my mail server. I wrote and explained it was their mail server that rejected the mail and they wrote back saying
    Until you follow my instructions, can't help you, sorry. I explained How I had followed instructions and that they were being rude and they replied Really??? Well, i have nothing to add then... ;-)

    I told them this was very poor customer service.
    At which I discovered they had ban my email server from sending them emails at all ?

    I now own hmonitor but can not use it for the machine I purchased it for. I can not get support and
    feel this company is extremely unprofessional

    "The file came with a virus"

    October 24, 2010   |   By rk2469

    Version: HMonitor 4.5.1.3

    Pros

    nothing good here. This file is infected with a virus. Not sure why the cnet states this file as "Tested spyware free" when it is infected with virus...

    Cons

    infected with a virus...

    "Didn't Evaluate no Trial Period"

    October 05, 2010   |   By Movarias

    Version: HMonitor 4.5.1.3

    Pros

    Wasn't able to use free trial

    Cons

    Wasn't able to use free trial

    Summary

    Although it says a trial it does not. I installed it and started it and when I didn't have an option to continue in trial mode I clicked close and it shutdown my entire computer. I don't know if that is their idea of a joke for not having bought the program it was not funny.

    "Next-best thing to NextSensor, but watch out for SPAM"

    September 18, 2010   |   By goyta

    Version: HMonitor 4.5.1.3

    Pros

    Works with Windows 7, including x64. Comprehensive monitoring.

    Cons

    Confusing interface, bad documentation. CPU throttling available only in paid version. Registration demands a non-public e-mail address (i.e., no Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail accepted) that starts getting spam for pirated software.

    Summary

    What I really wanted was NextSensor, the BEST monitor and CPU throttling utility ever made (and it was freeware!), but development on it has long ceased and it doesn't support 64-bit systems. HMonitor is the next best thing I could find that does, but it's not nearly as straightforward as NextSensor. The interface is confusing and the documentation is poor. And the CPU throttling feature I needed is only available in the Pro (paid) version. Even automatically checking for updates is an optional, paid feature.

    I bought the Pro version, but the purchase process refuses e-mail addresses from known public Web mail services like Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail. I informed a very rarely used account provided by my ISP and it was accepted, but spam advertising pirated software started arriving immediately in that account and still arrives heavily. At the very least they or their paying service don't secure their customers' e-mail address database, because spammers got my address from it - no doubt about this, given that the e-mail account was hardly ever used and timing matched perfectly. So, BEWARE!

    "VIRUS Beware! Artemis Trojan (found by McAfee)"

    August 26, 2010   |   By cnetuser2010_10

    Version: HMonitor 4.5.1.2

    Pros

    Sounds great if it delivered and was not Malware!

    Cons

    VIRUS Beware!! McAfee found Artemis trojan and quickly cleaned. Program tried to disable all firewalls antivirus and security settings upon installation. Must be checked out further by CNET.

    Summary

    Definitely not spyware free. Even somone with an imppecable a record as the people at download.com can make a mistake.

    "Horrid Customer Experience, Get SpeedFan instead"

    March 28, 2010   |   By go_bucksss

    Version: HMonitor 4.4.4.1

    Pros

    Seemed like decent software by description, paid for it and support would not send me the key to utilize it, said email did not come from same email as the paypal payment, even tho future communications came through paypal regarding the transaction

    Cons

    Horrid customer service, wasted time with multiple coorsponce just trying to get what was paid for against all reason and common sense...

    Summary

    Use SpeedFan it is free and WAY more robust, save your money on HMonitor and donate it to Speedfan like I did and get a much better experience and product.

    "I paid to have a virus installed on my system?"

    November 15, 2009   |   By bobcalledjohn

    Version: HMonitor 4.4.3.4

    Pros

    Absolutely none.

    Cons

    Either the software or their website gave me a virus. That about covers it.

    Summary

    I went to their website, downloaded the newest version and sent payment via Paypal. Immediately, my scanner notified me that a trojan virus that had just been installed on my system in the hmonitor directory! I had to chase it for a couple of hours to eradicate it. It also modified my Firefox script permissions which would have allowed a re-infection if I ever visited their site again. Is this company just a front for hackers? Now I have to file a Paypal dispute to try to get my money back. What a scam.
