    "Great for monitoring temperatures"

    April 17, 2013  |   By jacoby75

    Version: Speccy 1.21.491

    Pros

    Stupidly easy to use.
    Just open it and it does everything you need.
    Easy to read layout.
    Does exactly what I wanted it to do.

    Cons

    None that I can find.

    Summary

    My computer kept unexpectedly shutting off when I was in the middle of doing stuff. I thought it might be overheating. I was looking for an easy program to monitor the temperature. This totally does the trick. Easy to read display shows you the temp of your processor, motherboard, and hard drive, and the color goes from yellow to darker yellow to red as it gets hotter. It very clearly showed that my cpu and motherboard were both overheating, and I was able to correct the issue. Couldn't have asked for more. I still run it in the background from time to time and see what effect different processes have on the overall temp. It's very handy.

    Near as I can tell, it doesn't let you change anything, only monitors performance and temperatures and displays it. If you're looking for something that lets you control stuff and make changes to your system settings, I don't think this is it. But if you're just looking for something to show you the status of your system, this does the trick.

    "Very good little program"

    December 8, 2012  |   By bmumper

    Version: Speccy 1.19.411

    Pros

    Quick download and small size. It is easy to transfer to a jump drive for use anywhere. One big plus is that it will check the status of a laptop battery and let you know where it is in the life cycle. Plus it will give you more information than you know what to do with.

    Cons

    None that I have found.

    Summary

    It is well worth having in your tool box.

    "Very useful software, especially beginners."

    November 11, 2012  |   By GERRY RAINS

    Version: Speccy 1.18.379

    Pros

    I like it, it's not my most frequently used soft but it'd nice.

    Cons

    I haven't notice much of a change, therefore I assume that it was primarily covering weaknesses, and that's really no a con. I just have to fill in "cons".

    Summary

    Especially for laptops it's nice to see if anything is overheating.
