    "GREAT ITEM!!"

    January 14, 2013  |   By mlkknight

    Version: StartupSound.prefPane 1.1b3

    Pros

    Does what I need it to do. No more sound when I startup my Mac

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Summary

    Until Apple comes out with a way to turn off/mute your startup sound this is the tool you need.

    "Do not use!!!"

    January 5, 2012  |   By Pookie8Cookie

    Version: StartupSound.prefPane 1.1b3

    Pros

    None - never worked.

    Cons

    It corrupted my OS and ended up having to do a clean reformat/reinstall of my OS (snow leopard). I was not even able to start my Mac in safe mode.
    Please do not use this program.

    "JUST WORKS!"

    April 23, 2011  |   By friedchikkin

    Version: StartupSound.prefPane 1.1b3

    Pros

    SET IT AND FORGET IT!

    Cons

    SEE PROS!!!

    Summary

    Install it, set your preference, boot your Mac without letting the neighbors know! Solves a huge caveat with Apple's Mac designs that I have- imagine this annoyance every time you turn on your iOS device!

    "An excellent little gadget. Why not included by Apple?"

    January 16, 2011  |   By Karl-Erik Hallenius

    Version: StartupSound.prefPane 1.1b3

    Pros

    I really love it. Running OS X 10.6.6 on an iMac, late 2010. It is soothing to get rid of a loud startup, sound, waking up the rest of my family, when I start up my MAC in the morning or late at night. It is worth some money to the author!

    Cons

    Can't find any!

    Summary

    It is, as I said before, a very nice preference pane. It serves a very useful purpose and I just cant understand why something like this hasn't already been included by Apple among the standard preference panes.
    Should gladly pay some money for it. Nice of the author to give it away for free and not even suggest a voluntary "donation". (And I can' find out whereto send a donation :-))

    "Simple, fast, and does exactly what it's supposed to do"

    April 23, 2010  |   By syordy

    Version: StartupSound.prefPane 1.1b3

    Pros

    Fast download, easy & clean install, simple, does just what it's supposed to do. Sad that that's a big plus, but it doesn't happen often enough. Not only can you shut off the sound, but have the option of setting the volume just where you want it.

    Cons

    Only thing that would make this better is if it allowed you CHANGE the startup sound. When Mac makes an effort to make things so much easier than a PC do they make this one aspect so hard.

    "Got the software to work."

    January 23, 2010  |   By h.toelle

    Version: StartupSound.prefPane 1.1b3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    From h.toelle (at) cogeco (dot) ca
    I am pleased to report that with the adjustment of some prefs in the other package StartupSoundprefPane is now functioning as it should, After many years of Macs behind me the Startup chime has become a familiar staple. A comforting sound letting one know your machine should give you yet another session of performance. Controlling the level of that chime is something Apple has seemed have dropped recently, although I do not know why.
