    Version: Razer Game Booster 4.2.42.0

    Pros

    -Sort of easy to use interface
    -Constant freezes are fun

    Cons

    -Random FPS drops
    I was playing GMOD, and there were 2 - 3 props on screen, and it went from 15 to 3.
    -Crappy FPS
    Black Ops runs at 30 - 50 FPS now that I've deleted Razer. It used to be at most 20.
    -Craps on your computer when you load it up
    -Another gr-e-e-e-e-a-a-t product from Razer Inc.
    -Only usable online
    -Requires a log-in

    Summary

    Honestly, you'd be better off not using this at all. It doesn't boost games, hell, it even LOWERS your FPS. What I recommend?

    "Instead of using this,just use the iobit game booster 3"

    December 30, 2013  |   By Jeffhubert113

    Version: Razer Game Booster 4.1.59.0

    Pros

    ive tested it in my 3or old laptop with razer it gave me 2-3 fps boost,,and with iobit game booster 3.4 it goes to 15 fps boost,,and iobit also detects your pcu temperature and video cards..the download link for game booster 3 made by iobit thats really helps people than using razer:
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/ur48pbmw7tip376/Game%20Booster%203.4.exe

    Cons

    this razer one doesnt help even if u enable al the options or tweaks ,,does not works,,and this will be full of viruses soon when this is outdated

    Summary

    razer game booster doesnt help much,even if u use it with an 500mb ram or 1gb ram..it wouldtn just rate it 1 star and no more people would use this piece of crap,,besides the working one ois the oibit game booster 3.4 it has more improvements in your gameplay..

    Updated on Dec 31, 2013

    use the iobit game booster 3.5 :
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/zba375mbfocdtf8/gb3.5-beta-setup.exe

    more features than the 3.4 i putted last time srry
    and dont use razer its full of bugs and viruses and bottlenects your performance or just like make your pc lazy than optimizing it

    "Deleted everything from my hard drive."

    December 19, 2013  |   By ComputerUser123

    Version: Razer Game Booster 4.1.59.0

    Pros

    It showed me when driver updates were available before I updated Game Booster.

    Cons

    After opening the program, I was prompted that an update was available. I updated the program and it deleted all my files on that hard drive and created a bunch of junk folders as well.

    Deleted all the games that it was supposed to boost.

    Summary

    CREATE A SYSTEM RESTORE POINT BEFORE INSTALLING. THIS PROGRAM LITERALLY DELETED EVERY PROGRAM ON MY HARD DRIVE. Luckily it was my secondary hard drive, but this is still a major issue with the program. Terrible coding and poor testing before an update is pushed and now I have to spend hours fixing everything this program messed up.

    "Game booster on steriods"

    November 22, 2013  |   By super14man1

    Version: Razer Game Booster 4.0

    Pros

    If you used game booster before you know how to use this software and it is 100 percent free

    Cons

    have to be online at all times to use this software. Entering an username and password each time using the program is annoying.

    "Great product!"

    October 17, 2013  |   By stoupedog

    Version: Razer Game Booster 4.0

    Pros

    Nice, sleek design
    Fast to boost and unboost games
    Lots of other features (e.g defrag and screen recording)

    Cons

    Slightly slow to start up.

    Summary

    Overall, I think this is a very good product from Razer, but you only really need it if you have games on your computer that run badly. In conclusion, if you have a top of the line gaming computer, you probably don't need this, but if you have to change your video settings to low to reach 30fps in games, then I would recommend this product for you.

    "Unstable and Buggy On Win 8"

    September 28, 2013  |   By LorenzoJM

    Version: Razer Game Booster 4.0

    Pros

    None for me at the moment
    Really liked Version 3.6 and have re-installed it

    Cons

    I did not find the new interface to be nearly as easy to deal with as the older one. I prefer the Rt Click option in 3.6 to start programs with. The new program screen with 2 rows of rather large "tiles" functioned very poorly. It was impossible to run any game on the lower row as it would insist on running the one in the row above. FSX and Combat Pilot would crash almost immediately and both were very stable and improved under 3.6

    I tried numerous times without success. I even completely uninstalled and reinstalled 4.0 with the same result. Ended up re-installing 3.6 which I was quite pleased with and noticed definite improvement in several game titles. You just have to cancel any attempt by the program to update.

    Summary

    Unstable, poorly functioning and buggy on my newish Win 8 system.

    Stick with 3.6

    "This program really isn't worth adding."

    September 20, 2013  |   By ryandevoe

    Version: Razer Game Booster 3.5.6

    Pros

    Game defrag is a nice feature.

    Cons

    Having to "Login" in order to use it seems to contradict itself. It's supposed to eliminate unnecessary processes, not add to them.

    Summary

    I downloaded this as an update to a previous game booster version that I already had, I'm not sure exactly what version it was, but it was clearly better. I wouldn't waste your time adding this program to your computer.
