Relaxing Ocean Screensaver

CNET Editors' review

Though the soothing sounds and waves of the ocean are supposed to be relaxing, this screensaver also manages to irritate a little at the same time. Relaxing Ocean includes five beach scenes and five different ocean sounds. Each of the beach scenes is set to a specific time of day that can be synchronized with your own clock. Unfortunately, a limited demo prevents this good-looking screensaver from earning a higher rating.

The demo version only offers one of the five beach scenes, and only one of the sounds. The only setting you can adjust in the demo is the volume. The extremely large size of the installer (75MB) indicates that those extra scenes and sounds are included and disabled for demo users. The one scene available in the demo looks very good, and we were unable to tell where the video repeated itself.

While the sound and video are both high quality, they are not synced well, at least not in the demo. You'll often see a big wave crash and then hear the noise several seconds later. The coolest part of the program--the ability to sync the beach scenes to your local time--is the most interesting feature available, so it's unfortunate that the demo doesn't allow a taste of it. Overall, Relaxing Ocean Screensaver is far from the worst trip you'll ever take, but it's probably not the beach vacation of your dreams.
