Editors' Review

+

This well-designed program tests and improves your Internet connection speed, but it needs an experienced operator.

SG TCP Optimizer's compact, tabbed interface logically presents all settings and tests. We found SG TCP Optimizer efficient from the moment it quickly opened. The six tabs presented general and advanced settings, a tool to discover your system's largest possible nonfragmented packet, a calculator to figure your RWIN value, a latency test, and a quick Windows Registry editor. If you have no idea what those settings do, this program isn't for you. If you do have some experience, a short tutorial helps you quickly discover and enter the proper Registry settings to improve connection speed.

Settings are easily saved in backup files, making it easy to try different settings and revert if you accidentally slow connection speed. The help file gives basic information, although it's nothing a system administrator doesn't know.

Novices, on the other hand, shouldn't bother with this application. Its many settings, though easily changed, could cause serious system slowdowns if improperly altered. System administrators and advanced users will love this freeware's small size, powerful functions, and helpful tests.

"A nice toy"

February 03, 2010  |  By marathong

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 2.0.3

Pros

It is a nice learning tool

Cons

I don't really know how much difference it makes

Summary

I'm not a big fan of add ons or so called enhancers - I tend to believe in less is more on my computer systems. - I get antsy to try new things and then wish I didn't only because even after uninstalling something there is usually stuff left behind

"Good product - Experiment and record changes"

January 01, 2010  |  By hislove

 |  Version: SG TCP Optimizer 2.0.3

Pros

The optimizer worked as tested with Speakeasy Speed Test. Check you band width. Use " Optimal Settings " option. Move up the slider. A few boot ups and tests and you will have it tuned. Dont do one shot and panic.

Cons

None it works great. Not as easy as MV internet Optimizer but not really a con if it is more complete

Summary

If you want to invest the time to fine tune your internet speed this ranks with MV Internet Optimizer and appears as good if not more complete.
