Now we come to a review for another system utilities program, Auslogics BoostSpeed 6. Some parts of this program should be more or less recognizable to users who do regular maintenance already, since it comes with some pretty popular utilities that are available as freeware: the Auslogics Disk Defrag, the Auslogics Duplicate File Finder, the Auslogics Registry Cleaner, and the Auslogics Registry Defrag. Auslogics packs in more tools for a value proposition, though, like a System Scanner, an advanced Task Manager, a File Shredder, a Disk Wiper, and a host of other utilities that can all be used to clean up issues with your system and improve its performance.
So what do we like about this software? Quite a lot, actually. First of all, there’s the gorgeous GUI. It’s easy on the eyes, it’s easy on the understanding, and it’s even easy on the novices. Even beginners at using system utilities tools like these will be hard-put to fault the software there, since it’s obvious the people at Auslogics took time to think about how to design it carefully. You don’t end up feeling as though the program’s too dumb for you if you’re an advanced user, yet you don’t end up feeling as though it’s too smart for you either if you’re new to this sort of thing.
Then there are the tools themselves. Simply put, they do their jobs. Even with the tools we found least useful for our particular systems, every last one performed as it said it would, doing its job with a nice efficiency that was really hard to fault. Auslogics tools are known for being fast, and the ones packaged in BoostSpeed live up to expectations.
In truth, the only thing we didn’t like about the program was the fact that (some) advanced users would find it to be a waste of money in the sense that many of the optimizations it performed could be done with freeware or a little manual tweaking. But then again, that’s not something all people could do. So as far as most consumers are concerned, BoostSpeed will probably be a great system utilities program, since it really does optimize your system efficiently.
