    "Didn't help at all..."

    August 18, 2013  |   By BlitzWithGuns

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Screencast given and helps you with issues that slow down your computer. Made with a famous computer equipment creator.

    Cons

    Takes slightly long to launch for slower computers and decreases FPS by 50-60% when used to play games. Mine went down from 18 FPS to 7 FPS. Required to sign in to be able to use, which is a waste of time. It's just used to play games!

    Summary

    Not recommended to download. It doesn't do anything at all except for decreasing your gameplay experience. Uninstalled straight after using it for the first time.

    "READY TO UNINSTALL"

    May 2, 2013  |   By pianistgail

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Compared to the other Game Booster, not sure there is a pro.

    Cons

    Having used the previous version of Game Booster, I can say this one is NO IMPROVEMENT. In fact, I am here on CNet to find another game booster because I will be uninstalling this one. I can only get it to work if I am playing game, and if I do not launch the game from their launcher, the boost does not come on. Sometimes I use more than one screen when gaming - so if I close the secondary screen down, so goes down the game booster. NOT HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT !!

    Summary

    Go find something else - save yourself install and UN-install time.

    "Best of a mediocre group of software, but..."

    April 10, 2013  |   By soulcoma

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Allows you to stop many processes and services of your choice. On a PC with limited resources it will give you a marked improvement in speed and FPS. If you have a fast system with adequate RAM, there won't be much of a difference. It's basically iobit's Advanced SystemCare Booster in a single app. TuneUp Utilities also has a Booster that does the same thing, too. The main benefit on this program was that it was much smaller (only 13MB)...but see con below.

    Cons

    I preferred version 3.4 when it was just ioBit and not this Razer collaboration. The GUI isn't as user-friendly and you used to be able to just click BOOST without launching a game (if you wanted the Boost for say, more resources for a movie), and you still can, but now you have to use the hotkeys to do so. The new FPS section is a bit convoluted and the program doesn't offer much help in setting it up. AND, the benefit of a Booster App is its' small size. 3.4 was 13MB. This new version with the FPS section is almost 50MB. That's not much smaller than ioBit Advanced SystemCare, which has dozens more functions. And...Green Icon? Petty I know, But I went online and found the red one as I prefer it.

    "What The H*ll Happened Iobit??"

    February 23, 2013  |   By mje826

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    I was really hoping for something big to happen when Iobit hooked up with "Razor". Right now I am uninstalling this useless app.

    Cons

    After I configured all the background processes. I turned on the FPS and the Screen feature. Logged on to my MMO. Then watched my FPS drop from 220fps to 17fps. Couldn't figure out why. Tried everything. Nothing worked..Went back to previous version and I'm happy again.

    Summary

    Very disappointed in this version. I'm sorry but I can't recommend "Razor Game Booster". It didn't boost anything. It actually went in reverse boost mode..Common Iobit, You know better!!..

    "BEWARE!!!!!!!!"

    February 18, 2013  |   By jfish00

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    none, since I got hacked within 3 minutes of using

    Cons

    BEWARE!!!!!
    Installed to optimize Quake 3 game. Went to my usual server and within 3 minutes, a cursor appeared and started opening windows which showed on top of game. Quickly disconnected and have been running anti-rootkit, Remote Administration Trojan (RAT) and anti-virus programs for the last 12 hours.

    "Not Good Enough To Make You Jump Through Hoops"

    February 12, 2013  |   By BethGreens

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Very slight difference, hardly any noticeable game-play improvements.

    Cons

    Not good enough for games that really pack a punch on your computer or laptop. If you have very high definition games this program will probably not be good enough.

    Summary

    It's a very good thing I used a bull e-mail for this program to try it out. Always have garbage e-mails for programs like this that demand an e-mail they have no reason to really have besides selling your information! Basically the jumping through hoops IS ridiuclous for the little the program improves, if anything at all. Hardly noticeable improvements. I play high definition games that love to use a lot of RAM and such. I plan to uninstall and find a different software that doesn't beg for unnecessary information.

    "Absolutely horrible update"

    February 9, 2013  |   By fuqdapoleez

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.4

    Pros

    There is literally no improvement from the last version. If anything, it's a blatant downgrade.

    Cons

    You have to log in to a razer account every time you use it
    You need an internet connection just to run it
    Lots of bloatware. This version itself is double the size of the previous versions.
    You can't just run it, you have to have it launch a game and keep the game on.
    The "login" seems to be there so that the companies can keep track of the user's information for data mining. This type of underhanded practice is what gives companies a bad name.

    Summary

    Look for GB 3.5 Beta or lower if you want to use it

    "need the 3.4v back at lest"

    February 9, 2013  |   By dnilberauoy

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    nearly the same as the 3.4v on the important parts just added the signup Bs with new skin and some guides stating the obvious..

    Cons

    too much of an upgrade.. and yeah i prefer the red over this green one O_o"

    Summary

    why do we need to sign up boosting the performance a game?? didn't need it before why require it now?
