Editors' review

Hard Drive Inspector Professional keeps all of your system's attributes and hard disk health information in one, nicely wrapped package. However, we found a minor discrepancy with the information it provided us.

The user interface is beautifully designed, with large command buttons at the top for saving and sending data reports, and configuration options. Tabs organized the diagnostic information into three categories: Health Summary, Technical Info, and S.M.A.R.T. Details. From the Health Summary window, we got a brief summary of the amount of available space left on our hard disks, our disk model, and the temperature; although the temperature given on the main interface did not match the temperature given on our taskbar. But beyond that, we were able to view, in detail, our hard disk information, including serial, model, and firmware numbers, as well as logical and physical geometry info. The S.M.A.R.T. Details listed our system's attributes, along with their current stages, values, and flags.

The Help file does offer more detailed explanations of the program's features, so you don't have to be an expert to know how to read the information it provides. Though we would have liked to have seen a trial period longer than 14 days, we still recommend this program as a worthy diagnostic tool.

    "The best of the breed"

    February 13, 2014   |   By axelman2

    Version: Hard Drive Inspector Professional 4.24 build 202

    Pros

    Tried several HDD monitors during past two years and consider this one the best of them. Some of them show you a lot of technical data which is probably good if you are a techie yourself. This one compresses all those tables into just 3 easy-to-understand HDD health parameters: reliability, performance and error-resistance. I don't need to know some weird "spinup time" info, I just want to know if my disk is gonna crash tomorrow.

    Cons

    Its Czech interface has some spelling mistakes.
