Editors' Review

+
Though conceptually simple, Radar Screensaver earns our respect thanks to a stacked feature set. The program displays an accurate depiction of a radar device as it scans your screen, emitting blips and sounds from time to time. It then identifies the type of aircraft it has detected and can even track the supposed movements of Old Saint Nick. We really appreciate the high degree of user configurability this screensaver offers. You can specify traffic intensity, rotation speed, and grid style, and you can change the color of the beam, the grid, and the markers. Radar Screensaver also let you fine-tune many specific aspects of its appearance, such as whether to display a contour map or terrain noise, and you can add a personalized message to the entire scene. We think this program will be most appropriate for science and electronics buffs.

"Appears to have the radar affects that I am looking for"

November 14, 2011  |  By hfabaf

 |  Version: Radar Screensaver 1.6

Pros

Cool affects ... good colors ... does not take excessive memory space .. I believe I can have different radars on each of my dual monitors ... still need to figure that one out

Cons

A little more expensive than I would have liked

"Best Screensaver out especially for navigators"

July 24, 2011  |  By nomadmariner

 |  Version: Radar Screensaver 1.6

Pros

the sweep gives a very realistic image of an actual radar and with the targets coming up it makes it very cool

Cons

Could give more information on each target to make it more real and a different sound option would be nice.

Summary

works for me and will remain my screensaver.
