"Really quite a bit better than similar software"
Version: ProEject 1.0
It's proven to work with my tricky Western Digital external hard drive. I like its very small memory usage (because I do keep it idling in the system tray all the time). And it's freeware - the competitor I had for years would not update unless I bought a license, and it worked poorly anyway: very often it just plain failed to stop or eject that otherwise-great-but-stubborn WD drive.
The interface is a little bit on the homely side and functionally awkward/confusing - nothing too major though. I don't care for the system tray icon and wish there were a user option to change the color or something. My worst (but still mild) beef is that one particular item cannot be hidden in the UI as an ejectable drive - which it isn't. This despite the fact that some other drives could be hidden easily.
Functionally this has superior reliability to others I've used. It really does its job pretty well. Memory drain is quite low, and there's no holding you at gunpoint to upgrade to a paid version. I'd say it's a very good tradeoff for settling for a basic-looking and somewhat awkwardly arranged UI.
