Editors' Review

+
This screensaver places a variety of scenes from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on your computer. This program is unlikely to wear out its welcome quickly, as it offers more than 40 images taken from the film. However, image quality is somewhat erratic; some shots look fine, but others appear fuzzy, pixilated, and overly dark. The audio quality of the accompanying music is dreadful and sounds like an MP3 encoded at a very low bit rate. The feature set fares somewhat better. You can disable the audio, choose from a number of transition effects, render all images in black-and-white, set the image delay, and display captions. Best of all, Harry Potter Screen Saver contains no adware and won't cost you a dime. Its middling image quality aside, this screensaver makes an ideal download for fans of the pint-sized wizard.

"Low quality images, leaves files on PC when uninstalled"

December 29, 2008  |  By datkins1268

 |  Version: Harry Potter Screen Saver 2.0

Pros

Easy to install, some interesting pictures, good transition effects.

Cons

Dark pictures, poor color on some, annoying nag banner on bottom, watermark would have been much more preferable, left two files in C:\Windows\prefetch after running the uninstall program (XP PRO, SP3 ).

Summary

Poor quality of images were the primary reason for the uninstall. Also use watermark instead of white nag banner on bottom of screen. No support at all, web site mentioned on splash screen doesn't exist, neither does email address.

"Not as good as I would have expected."

November 15, 2008  |  By cree_hummingbird

 |  Version: Harry Potter Screen Saver 2.0

Pros

Pictures are pretty good

Cons

The pictures chosen for this screensaver are probably not the ones from the movie I would have chosen

Summary

This screensaver would probably be better if the pictures were more recognizable scenes from the movie.

"not worth it"

July 12, 2005  |  By colburn_cl

 |  Version: Harry Potter Screen Saver 2.0

Cons

it's a 2-day demo, costs $12-something to "register", all for something you could do yourself for free with the regular Windows slideshow screensaver

"probably good enough for kids..."

July 02, 2004

 |  Version: Harry Potter Screen Saver 2.0

Summary

...but the images are quite dark at times and really not that imaginative (one or two are clearly low-quality screenshots). I don't know what trouble the person below had with uninstalling, but there is an "Uninstall Harry Potter" button on the start bar, so I'm not sure it could be any easier.
