Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This application provides easy access to your hardware configuration settings, but the demo version doesn't allow users to save the changes made.

HWDirect's simple two-pane interface displays your complete system configuration in a typical tree-like menu. You can dig deeper by displaying each setting in separate windows. When you choose a system item, the program quickly and effectively collects all necessary information to allow you to easily make settings changes.

Unfortunately, in this demo version, the Save feature is disabled. That makes it impossible to verify the effects of the modifications. Despite the program's novice-friendly interface, all users should be aware that hardware modifications can have a serious impact on system performance. We like the way this program looks and operates, but you'll have to take a leap of faith that saving modifications will work in the full version.
