Hard Disk Sentinel Professional Editor's Review

Among the several hardware components used in a PC, hard disk is very important as it is what contains all data including the operating system. Like all components of your computer, the hard disk also becomes subjected to wear and tear, usage related performance degradation. Over time, it may lead to slower performance and on worse cases, data loss. Therefore, it is important that you use suitable application for monitoring hard disk health, performance and check its capability from time to time. One such nifty utility is Hard Disk Sentinel Professional. It offers myriads of features to keep a tab on PC hard disk health and report any change and benchmark it with similar drives. The Pro version is commercial and comes with many more features than the standard version.

The application supports a variety of internal and external hard disks. It supports SATA and IDE, SCSI hard drives as well as external USB interface units. However, external hard disk drives with IEEE 1394 interface are not supported by it. It will run on PCs with nearly all Windows versions including the extinct Windows 95 and recent Windows 8, in both 32 and 64-bit editions. Installation gets done quickly and the app does not hog much resource either.

While the software interface may not be very aesthetic it is quite intuitive. Even a first time user will have no hardship in understanding various features and use them in a jiffy. The app lets you monitor S.M.A.R.T status of the HDD, check temperature, check real time disk transfer speed etc. With these, you can find out whether the HDD is offering optimal performance or if it is heading to failure.

The app uses different colors to indicate health of the hard disk, which is ideal for beginners. However, advanced users can delve deep to get detailed descriptions on the HDD. In fact, Hard Disk Sentinel Professional displays detailed information on any HDD including interface, firmware revision, serial number and other details. The app comes with remote monitoring capabilities giving you the option to check Hard disk status through a mobile phone or web browser.

Apart from checking hard disk health or disk transfer rate, Hard Disk Sentinel Professional also offers data backup options. You can backup data to a local drive or a LAN server, saving backup to a FTP Server is also possible.

The app can alert users about impending hard disk failure or performance degradation. You can choose to receive alerts in the manner that suits your needs the best. Sound based alert or message display, pick what meets your need. In fact, the app can be set to send you emails when it detects a problem with the PC hard drive. Taking it one step forward, the app can display HDD status directly in Windows explorer. It supports acoustic management and hard disk models with support for this feature are compatible. While the app is easy to use, you can resort to the company website for troubleshooting hard disk and explore the FAQ section there.

Positive Points:
 -  Wide OS support, easy to use interface.
 -  Advanced hard disk test and benchmarking.
 -  Customizable alert types for HDD health.
 -  Integrated data backup.

Negative Points:
 -  IEEE 1394 interface drives are not supported.

Conclusion:
Hard Disk Sentinel Professional is a capable hard disk health monitoring and benchmarking utility that offers excellent performance for its price. It offers myriads of features but does not intimidate first time users either. You can check out various tests to learn about performance and health of your hard disks. Nearly every hard disk type is supported barring IEEE 1394 interface enabled models. You can understand results of tests through visual indicators and advanced users can also find very detailed information. The amount of customization offered for receiving alerts is also commendable. If you have any query on its functionalities, the online FAQ section will come in handy.
