Editors' Review

Entech Taiwan's PowerStrip simultaneously supports multiple graphics cards from different vendors. It can extend the usefulness of older cards and legacy installations by supporting cards as old as the ATI Mach 64. It exerted a level of control over our graphics and display hardware that we've never seen in a standalone utility.

Installing PowerStrip makes changes to your registry and requires a reboot so that it can do its job. The program offers about 500 controls over your system's graphics hardware, yet we found it extremely easy to use. Tool tips and numerous online resources stand ready to help, if needed. The easiest way to access PowerStrip is to click its system tray icon, which calls up a menu accessing configuration dialogs for application, display, color, and performance options, which can be saved as "profiles." There's also a general Options menu that accesses numerous program preferences as well as extras like hotkey and resource managers and multiple monitor settings. Each profile menu offers default and configuration options, the latter consisting of pop-up dialogs with a compliment of typical controls and options and some useful touches, such as spectral bar displays. Advanced options call up additional dialogs with still finer settings; for instance, the display profile dialog's Advanced Timing Options includes pixel-by-pixel adjustment of horizontal and vertical geometry, a pixel clock setting, and yet another dialog for customizing resolution, while the performance options include engine and memory clock sliders: Use with care!

PowerStrip is listed for all Windows versions from 95 to Vista, but Windows 7 worked just fine; PowerStrip even recognized the edition.

Editor's note: This is a review of the full version of PowerStrip 3.87. The trial version is limited to 30 days trial only.

"Worked but locked up Win 7"

April 12, 2012

 |  Version: PowerStrip 3.90

Pros

Reset my vid settings and now everything seems to be fine (one week).

Cons

However, I had to remove Powerstrip from startup as the "nag screen" would lock up and would not close unless Task Manager launched and clicked several times.

Summary

Use it, but then don't allow it to load at start up.
