Editors' Review

SiSoftware Sandra provides a robust package of diagnostic tools for testing your system and teasing out its problems--or potential headaches.

This download launches a cheerfully designed interface with an array of colorful--one might even say sprightly--icons for each of its tools. Its arrangement of tools was nicely categorized for the user's benefit: Computer Maintenance, Module Types (Benchmarks, Hardware, Software, Support), and Program Maintenance. Across the top of the window are tabs for each category that match the icons, and each tab provides access to a set of focused tools. We were very pleased with SiSoftware Sandra's performance during our tests. We liked that we could choose from a thorough list of options of items for tests--less robust packages simply run their diagnostics without informing the user just what is getting tested or how. Novices may be in the dark about some of the particulars listed by the app's option boxes, but experienced users will appreciate the thoroughness. Thanks to these option lists, we were able to pinpoint devices, peripherals, and processes for testing; we didn't have to wait for the tool to run a complete test through our entire system. We also liked the benchmarking and reporting features, which are required for anyone interested in comparing performance over time or developing trending reports.

For those running SiSoftware Sandra from a server for network diagnostics, the 75-module limit for the trial version may seem inadequate. However, the price is nice for the robust feature set provided by this toolbox.

    "I don't get it"

    September 07, 2014   |   By spinefast

    Version: SiSoftware Sandra 2014

    Pros

    It keeps you from using your computer for 20 minutes so you can mow the lawn.

    Cons

    This whole thing is incomprehensible. I don't know what I'm trying to accomplish, what I'm running, and I don't understand the results. The charts are whacked. I'm not sure when I'm looking at my results of someone elses. And I don't understand how to navigate to get back to the useful information that I just accidentally stumbles across.

    "Full of adware"

    February 05, 2014   |   By Whoregasboard

    Version: SiSoftware Sandra 2014

    Pros

    The Sandra program itself is a wonderful program that helped me diagnose an overheating problem in my computer a while ago. If this review was ONLY for the Sandra program, it would get 4 stars.

    Cons

    The download is LOADED with adware. The downloader asks you if you'd like to install 'express' (which comes with several bundled adware programs) or 'custom' (which I selected and chose to download ONLY the Sandra program) The THREE different EULA's that popped up during the install were not for the Sandra program, but for "special offers" of different adware, I declined all of them, and TWO separate adware programs were still added to my computer without my permission or direction.

    Summary

    Great program, packed in adware crap.
