CNET Editors' review
Prepare to blast your way through numerous starscapes with Lightspeed Screen Saver, a 3D screen saver that flies you through a virtual universe loaded with up to 32,000 stars.
This free software's interface is minimal, to say the least. However, anything more complicated would be extraneous. A handful of buttons let us change the screen saver modules, adjust global settings, and create our own module, as well as get help. As for creating modules, the interface is overly complicated and even a bit overwhelming. But since Lightspeed Screen Saver offers a large number of modules to choose from, it's doubtful you'll need to create your own. The default setting is for a module called Anti-Light 4, which appears very elementary. However, other modules, like Hyper-Cluster, offered more impressive graphics. We recommend setting the timer to 0; otherwise you're flipped back to the default Anti-Light 4 setting. One cool feature that Lightspeed Screen Saver offers is the ability to interact with the module. With a simple click, you can move and rotate the graphics.
Lightspeed Screen Saver is easy to install and just as easy to uninstall. It doesn't require you to register or enter any personal information, nor does it need a username or password. If you're tired of the same old generic screen saver, check out Lightspeed Screen Saver.
A 3D starfield screen saver with up to 32,000 stars and a unique key frame animation system, immersive virtual worlds are blasted to your screen with unprecedented flexibility and creativity. In screen saver mode, Lightspeed runs on autopilot, flying itself through breathtaking starscapes. But with one click, you can engage an interactive mode and fly it yourself. Version 9.1 Includes 50 starfield modules and has a full Editing system so that users can create custom modules. You can use internally generated worlds, or import your own photos and DXF 3D Objects to create custom starfields from Logos, CAD models, 3D scans...
What's new in this version: Version 9.1 includes a module editor for making custom starfield modules.

"Works GREAT on my Windows 7 64 bit computer"
Version: Lightspeed Screen Saver 9.1
Best Windows starfield screensaver I've seen.
If you create your own starfield modules it requires learning how to do this.
Just what I was looking for -- and more!!!
"Would not work on a Windows 7 64-bit computer"
Version: Lightspeed Screen Saver 9.1
easy to download and install
did not work on my computer, a Windows 7 64-bit laptop
Can't recommend it since it did not work. I have it one star only because the system requirements were either not posted, or were posted in such a way that I could not find them.
