    "Glad everyone else liked it."

    February 8, 2013  |   By GriperBlade

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Did't even get it to run.

    Cons

    Wants me to create accounts with a service I'll never use, sign in, who knows what else -- too many hoops to jump through. Not worth the effort.

    Summary

    From the rest of the reviews, this is great -- provided you want to waste time emailing back and forth to set the thing up. I want to download and use, not download, email, and apply to use. Big, big, big fail on ease of setup. Uninstalled within 20 minutes of installing.

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    It improved my game by a bout 5 frames per sec and always tells me the amount of fps

    Cons

    doesn't really change much and defragging is useless

    "Game Booster boosters!"

    January 19, 2013  |   By clarkdaw

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    This app launches quickly and boots up all the games you have. Once you select the game from the icon, zap, your game gets loaded and all systems needlessly running in your background gets paused. (Not any programs that are needed to keep your system safe).

    Cons

    None that I can see here on my WinXP Pro computer.

    Summary

    I so would recommend this program! It is very easy to use, just install and have it scan your system for games!

    "Best game booster out there!!!"

    January 11, 2013  |   By coleman11580

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Easy to use, and has markedly improved the gameplay, particularly my MMORPGs.

    Cons

    The GUI is not as user-friendly as it once was, but it is a small detractor.

    "Garbage. IOBit's original is far superior."

    January 9, 2013  |   By Valethar

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    The Razer black and green color scheme. (Not really, I was just looking or something nice to say about it...)

    Cons

    Boost mode doesn't reset on reboot. (IOBit's original did). All of your processes will load normally, but the software thinks it's still 'boosted' and won't engage 'boost' mode until you return to 'normal' mode first.

    The auto-boost feature doesn't work properly. Games that use a launcher (most MMOs for example) will engage boost mode when the launcher opens, then exit back to normal when the launcher opens up the actual game EXE file.

    The Razer staff is obnoxious and rude. If you dare ask them about an update, the reply is 'when we release it'. Bugs go months without fixes. Four months is far too long to fix something that worked before they 'took over' the project.

    Summary

    Stay away from this. Look for IOBit's older version 2.0 if you can find it. It's far superior to this travesty, and will actually work when it's supposed to. It even has customer support that helps people.

    Too bad Razer can;t say the same.

    "Excellent For Gamers"

    January 8, 2013  |   By Black_Baron94

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Where to begin with? Accelarates your pc and increases performance via software alterances, which is great even for old and average computers. Many options to chose from, as to which of the tasks you'd like to close, plus the forums it directs you to are people who explain what the task is and in which occasion you should kill it or make an exception on GameBooster (which is easy as pie). The best example is my lap top, 4 years old, Duo CPU 2.6GHZ 4GB RAM and average video card. Thanks to Game Booster I was able to play a game that came out 3 months ago, at HIGH RESOLUTION AND GRAPHICS. Thank you Game Booster.

    Cons

    Been using it for 7 months and didn't stumble upon a negative side of the programm. The only could-be negative aspect is that if you don't know what tasks you're killing you might get into some trouble but nothing too important or something that can't be undone.

    Summary

    If you want a programm to accelarate your pc performance, this is it, look no further
