"Very Extensive Depth of Data"
Version: Speccy 1.24.632
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).
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.
Reliable, accurate detail on hardware, OS, and software in modern Windows-based computers. Unbeatable in free utilities.
"Seriously crashed my PC every time I ran it."
Version: Speccy 1.24.632
None. Waste of time.
Speccy crashed my PC each time on opening, resulting in BSOD with Bad Pool Header Data message. Scary! It's a good few years since I suffered anything like that! Tried to uninstall but was initially thwarted due to it not appearing in the installed programs list either in Windows or in CCleaner! (Acerpower F5 running Win XP SP3).
Fortunately there was an uninstall.exe in the relevant program files folder which removed it successfully. Phew! Won't be trying that again.
Dodgy software. Very disappointed with Piriform, who have (had) a good reputation based on the excellent CCleaner.
