"System Information, Diagnostic and Benchmark"

Overview

HARDiNFO7 is an easy to use program designed with people and business in mind. Its purpose is purely informational, providing you with easily an understandable view of what your computer has. You also have the option to view benchmarks, easily monitor your systems functions, and view the devices you are connected too all in one place.

HARDiNFO7 Is a fully functional computer diagnostic tool that is not only easy to set up it’s also very comprehensible. It’s also built around giving you all the information you need in a simple way, providing even less computer savvy people to understand their system and its capabilities.

Installation

I found the setup to be very quick and painless. This program didn't try to offer any extra adware, and installed very quickly. It does take quite a bit of time scanning your computer to provide information. HARDiNFO7 will work with Windows systems only (XP, 2003 Server, 2008 Server, Vista, 7).

Interface

Although very easy to use, the interface for HARDiNFO7 is a bit outdated, it feels reminiscent of Windows XP. It does provide a great deal of information but some specific things feel a bit limited. It is much geared towards businesses, it felt very professional and provided a clean understandable platform to monitor my PC with.

Pros

HARDiNFO7 has all of the information you really need to keep your PC up to date and running smoothly. It provides all of this information in a very comprehensible way giving anyone access to their computer information. It has all of this bundled into one tool, giving you a very easy way to look around your computer and understand it. It also was very easy to install and only took a matter of minutes and it was up and running. The scanning process was only delayed a bit, but once it was there I was impressed with how much information this tool gives.

It has a large amount of information about the motherboard and BIOs that I could not find with other similar programs. The biggest advantage to this program is the fact that it’s really clear and simple.

Cons

There were some problems getting to program to install - in our test, it crashed once during installation.

The interface is a little dull. It lacks some information in the memory section, also the scanning process felt a bit drawn out.

Alternatives

This program is a close competitor with other similar programs out there. An alternative program would be Aida64, this program has many of the same functions but it uses a different interface. Speccy is also a very good alternative, it is one of the highest rated programs similar to HARDiNFO7.

Conclusion

For people or businesses looking for a simple, clear, and easily understandable informational tool for the system this is the program for you. It provides a very large amount of information, more than most of the free competitors. If you find yourself in need of more functions or information you’ll also probably find yourself paying for it.

What's new in this version: Added German Language Support, Other Fixes and improvements.
