Magic Memory Optimizer

CNET Editors' review

Many optimizer packages offer a mishmash of tools seemingly tossed in a box, but this well-designed, easy-to-use optimizer will satisfy nearly any novice user's system management needs. However, although the developer's description says the free download version has no limitations, some features were disabled in our tests.

Magic Memory Optimizer launches an attractive interface that's simple to comprehend and navigate. The initial launch window displays current usage for Memory, CPU, Physical Memory, along with some settings you can configure to tweak general memory management.

This utility worked fine in our tests, although we were disappointed that the Advanced Optimizer options for adjusting CPU processes were disabled in the free version. Upgrading for a registered version includes a minimal cost and opens the door to free upgrades and technical support. However, using the free functionality, we were pleased we could free or compress memory with just a button click. We also were able to configure some of Magic Memory Optimizer's settings, adjust how our system manages Windows' visual effects, and processor performance. The list of System Processes is handy, but it really offers no more functionality than Windows' Task Manager. The HTML help file is well-organized and addressed any and all questions we had.

Novices will find this application handy and easy to use. However, experienced users will prefer a toolbox with more robust bells and whistles, and probably should skip over this utility.

    "Works for me! Noticeable improvement in speed."

    February 8, 2009  |   By rdg

    Version: Magic Memory Optimizer 8.1.1.0123

    Pros

    Defaults work well. I tried some adjustments and went back to the recommended settings.

    Cons

    I wish the help section gave a more detailed explanation of what the various features did. I am half way between the expert and the novice and an explicit help section would be appreciated.

    Summary

    How can you wear out RAM? Fill up RAM, empty RAM, add RAM, yes -- wear out RAM, no.

    "A scam, but still better than most."

    January 23, 2009  |   By MafiaPenguin

    Version: Magic Memory Optimizer 8.1.1.0123

    Pros

    I hope that you all know that memory optimizers are a joke.

    Cons

    They "work", but in their "optimization", they make programs freeze (I remember one that killed my poor Firefox!).

    Summary

    They are useless, because if you need more RAM, they get more RAM!
    I run a laptop w/ WinXP on it w/ 1GB and the only program I could get to sloww it down was Microsoft's Age Of Empires III.

    "Works but i don't recommend it!"

    January 23, 2009  |   By thestonegodsrock

    Version: Magic Memory Optimizer 8.1.1.0123

    Pros

    It does work fine no problems but..

    Cons

    Memory optimisers reduce the life of your memory... why do you think windows has never included ram optimisers?? because its reduces the life of you RAM!

    Summary

    It Works but use at your own risk it will reduce the life of your RAM if you use it constantly!
