Solar System Screen Saver

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This free screensaver brings a photographic slide show of planets and asteroids to your desktop. After installation, it displays the screensaver properties window, which allows you to select from a variety of slide-show transitions. It also plays a MIDI of the theme from the Star Trek movies. Some may find the music charming, others a bit cheesy. You can mute the audio if you want. On the whole, the screensaver looks amateurish. The photographs themselves are adequate, and there are a lot of them (which accounts for the large 4.58MB download), but the dull solid-color backgrounds don't provide much excitement. The captions, meanwhile, are set in an archaic typeface that doesn't fit the mood. The shortcut the screensaver places on the desktop refers to an unavailable resource. If you're really interested in space, Solar System Screen Saver may have some appeal, but you can find many more impressive celestial screensavers by hunting around this site.
