Talking Alarm Clock Talking Alarm Clock

Good program but it's a resource hog 2 stars
It's a good program for the purpose for which it's intended, but it's a headache to manage. It will run on your system whether you have an alarm set or not. Even if you disable all alarms and don't have it load at startup, it will still display them because of the background service that it uses, which can be disabled, but all this for an alarm clock. Very annoying. I would prefer a program to only run when I specify. When I turn it off, it shouldn't load any programs into memory nor display any alarms, period. In other words, if there's no alarms that need to be displayed, it shouldn't be loaded and using the valuable resource of memory. OVERALL: Good for the basic user, but the power-user will want to look for something else. Price: Free

The software developer responded to this review on Apr 01, 2007: The most important attribute of an alarm clock is reliability. The portions of the program that always run do so for one single reason - to ensure that you never ever miss a reminder. Surely reliability is worth a very small amount of memory. The monitoring service need not be disabled, it s an optional feature that can be omitted from the installation.

Good diagnostic for memory 4 stars
I had built a new high-end gaming/development PC and everything was running fine. Two weeks later I was having all sorts of issues booting up and running applications. It wasn't until I used this utility to check the 2 GB of RAM I had placed in the box that I found the issue. A bad memory module from a cheap supplier I had chosen. You get what you pay for, right. It's the best memory diagnostic I've come across so far. Price: Free
