"DID NOT speed up my Mac"

April 04, 2016  |  By eddiezed

2016-04-04 09:46:13  |  By eddiezed

 |  Version: Stellar SpeedUp Mac 3.0

Pros

demo works great in terms of speed and promise, product should be like that but it isn't.

Cons

Platinum version did not work so great; bait and switched freed up only 15% of the advertised teaser from demo.
Then the actual scan took much longer; we are talking hours, had to be aborted.
retried the same thing the scan doesn't work efficiently, i dont know if its because i downloaded a trail version then paid for the platinum, well maybe tech support can help. Guess what, no they can't or won't; their reply is that the demo version behaves like the actual version, no further help offered. the uninstall feature scan is just as bad sloow slooow sloooow we are talking hours waiting for completion then nothing had to abort that also, otherwise who knows how long the scans would have taken. finally the bytes removed, space saved turned out to be some necessary data to keep me from having to enter passwords or shortcuts that actually slowed down things more than ever

Summary

Don't waste your time look elsewhere
especially since technical support is so poor and accountability is suspect!
I will take my 17 inch macbook pro to the apple store and pay them to fix their stupid software.

Beware reviewers I have no axe to grind with the people or no special interest in any software company. This company is based in Germany with Indian support staff, could be more accountable to its worldwide customer base.

"My iMac runs better"

January 19, 2016  |  By BillyKraft

2016-01-19 19:46:41  |  By BillyKraft

 |  Version: Stellar SpeedUp Mac 3.0

Pros

I Recommend this app for slow apps

Cons

UI resembles like that of older Mac apps

Summary

My iMac got 16GB of RAM but still it slows down when I launch multiple tabs on couple of browsers. VLC application run too slow for iMac this powerful. However after I cleaned 500MB of old caches from my Mac all of these applications ran smoother and quicker than earlier. Speedup Mac did speedup the slow apps on Mac.

Uninstaller isn't free in demo version

'Recommended Scan' kicked out gigabytes of crappy files from Macintosh HD. Uninstaller helped get rid off MacKeeper application completely. What else to ask for?

"So far So Good"

October 26, 2015  |  By johnmauldin22

2015-10-26 20:58:17  |  By johnmauldin22

 |  Version: Stellar SpeedUp Mac 3.0

Pros

? Freed up useless hard disk space
? Uninstalled apps that were eating memory
? Cleaned my Mac in 15 minutes

Cons

Just by spending $34, I avoided a hardware upgraded that would cost me around $500-1000. Just can't complain about the software.

Summary

I installed the Stellar Speedup Mac software after reading the review from igeeksblog.com. When I ran the software for first time, it just took 10-15 minutes to free up 8.5 GB of useless hard disk space. It also reduces my booting time and even my web-browsing speeds are much more improved.

"Several features for recovering extra hard driv spaces"

August 25, 2015  |  By Matthew M. Mitchell

2015-08-25 21:02:52  |  By Matthew M. Mitchell

 |  Version: Stellar SpeedUp Mac 3.0

Pros

Easy to use and good design.

Cons

Lack some expert features.

Summary

Stellar Speedup Software removed all the unnecessary junks and regained near about 5 GB of my free spaces. It performed complete system scan to find all the system junks and caches. Though, it lacks some expert features, but overall it is good.

"Worth Running on Mac"

June 18, 2015  |  By 1990Auged

2015-06-18 20:08:07  |  By 1990Auged

 |  Version: Stellar SpeedUp Mac 3.0

Pros

Separately scans startup drive and non-bootable drives

Cons

Files once deleted can't be restored. So be careful.

Summary

This tool is worth running on Mac. I tried other software but they ended up messing my system. Compared to them Stellar Speedup Mac is Safe.

"Yosemite friendly"

February 08, 2015  |  By SOSRock

2015-02-08 20:18:59  |  By SOSRock

 |  Version: Stellar SpeedUp Mac 3.0

Pros

It helped clean Yosemite system folders like caches

Cons

Other disk loads slowly if drive have more than 1 partition

"Removed needed programs and registration files"

February 02, 2015  |  By pink378

2015-02-02 12:55:45  |  By pink378

 |  Version: Stellar SpeedUp Mac 3.0

Pros

It does speed up the shutting down process. Before my Mac would have the spinning wheel forever until I shut it down manually by pushing the power button. Now it seems to shut down properly.

Cons

It removed the software for my trackball, so I had to re-install that to use my trackball again. Also it removed the registration files for iWork so I had to re-register my software again. After using my Mac for the first time after cleaning some programs were slow to open, but seem to run okay after that.

Summary

It removed 14gb of unwanted files (some of them I actually needed and had to re-install) but it did not speed up my Mac performance that much. I only used the free version, but I don't recommend SpeedUp Mac.
