Editors' Review

+

Speccy displays your PC's specifications: everything from software and hardware versions to peripherals, storage, graphics, and network data. Its compact program size and layout make it a versatile tool for upgrades, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Speccy is a great place to start when you need to know something about your computer.

Pros

Specs and stats: Speccy displays your system's specifications and other available data under expandable category headings like Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Optical Drives, and Audio.

Temperature and voltage: Speccy can display real-time temperatures and voltages from sensors in most motherboards. Tiny graphs expand to full size when clicked.

Save and export data: You can take, load, and publish Snapshots of Speccy's reports or save data as Text or XML files that technical support can use to diagnose computer problems.

Cons

No alarms: While Speccy displays temperature and voltage data, it lacks alerts or notifications to excessive temperatures and voltage fluctuations. Similar tools offer such features, though in fairness that's a job that's probably best done by proper monitoring software, especially if heat and power issues are of concern.

Bottom Line

Speccy is a versatile tool that doesn't take up much space on the disk or desktop yet earns its keep every time you need to find out something about your PC. It's a reliable "daily driver" that strikes a good balance between the basic information available from Windows and similar specification tools that return an overwhelming amount of data.

"Microsoft latest update automatically removes Speecy"

November 16, 2015  |  By Dill Pickles98

2015-11-16 00:20:03  |  By Dill Pickles98

 |  Version: Speccy 1.28.709

Pros

Like being able to monitor everything after putting a fair amount of stress on both my custom built I-3 Intel processor, and my Acer laptop. Both running Win 10-64 Pro.

Cons

As Nov. 13, 2015 on both my desktop & laptop, Microsoft Update 1511 automatically uninstalls Speecy. Description says; This application will no long work, and has been removed.

Summary

I am hopeful Piriform will come out with an update that will make compatible with Win 10-64 Pro.

"Memory speed doubts"

September 03, 2015  |  By joneb1999

2015-09-03 06:59:40  |  By joneb1999

 |  Version: Speccy 1.28.709

Pros

Possibly none

Cons

Not sure if there is any reason for it over Windows own system information and its possibly unreliable

Summary

When I got this at first I thought it was working fine but after upgrading my memory its still reporting the speed at around 650mhz when the bios and windows system information reports it at being 1333 which it is. It at least has the amount of ram correct at 8mb. I don't know if this is reliable unless someone can explain otherwise.

"Complete junk"

June 25, 2015  |  By MATT SLATTERY

2015-06-25 09:52:56  |  By MATT SLATTERY

 |  Version: Speccy 1.28.709

Pros

No pros I can even think of other than finding out the temperature of your unit.

Cons

Incorrect data given in a few areas. Does not generate a report of everything on your system such as software and updates installed.

Summary

I received incorrect hardware type on a few things. On being RAM told me pc 2300 when I actually had PC 3200. Said there was 3GB RAM when I only have only 2.5GB
told me dvd/cd rom was Samsung when was liteOn. I put the hardware in myself with all accompanied software so I know how incorrect Speccy is. Piriform dropped the ball with this one

"Very Extensive Depth of Data"

January 22, 2014  |  By Ira33629

2014-01-22 23:37:02  |  By Ira33629

 |  Version: Speccy 1.24.632

Pros

Speccy goes far beyond the typical system information tools' hardware granularity, drilling deep down to display accurate detail of hardware sub(sub)-components, detail that often surpasses what can bed found in a vendor's own service manuals (e.g. manufacturer, size, type, quantity, and speed of the chips on each RAM board inserted into each RAM slot).

Cons

On most systems, Speecy causes a noticeable sustained high CPU utilization even after obtaining and displaying the detailed component information. This appears due to its monitoring hardware for changes, which is evident when you the numerous temperature sensors changing.

Summary

Reliable, accurate detail on hardware, OS, and software in modern Windows-based computers. Unbeatable in free utilities.
