PC Wizard 2012 Editor's Review

Average computer users use their laptops and desktops to run productivity applications, watch movies, browse web and perform other computing needs. However, seasoned users think beyond these and they need to find out in depth information about software and hardware configuration of their systems. At times, this can be a necessity too. You may want to know if the PC is capable enough to run a new strategy game that you are planning to buy. For such needs, you need capable third party tools as Windows built in utilities cannot offer detailed information on hardware parts or run benchmarks. PC Wizard is an application that will fit your needs well in this regard.
PC Wizard has a small footprint and runs on nearly all Windows versions. However, you may not want to install it at defaults settings. Doing so will change your browser settings. It will also prompt you to install unrelated applications. You can choose not to install some components. There is a portable version as well. This is a multilingual application.

The application has a sleek and user friendly interface. The UI however displays ads which can be irksome for some users. The application makes a system tray icon. The main window shows system summary. Using the application you can details on each hardware parts including GPU, Memory models, network adapter, hard disc etc. The app shows minute details like S.M.A.R.T. attributes of HDD, processor voltage and GPU core temperatures. These will be useful for advanced users. You may save reports generated by the application as text files.

Along with hardware components, the application can also display software component details. PC Wizard can be used to run a number of benchmarks. The benchmarks can be useful to find out capability of your PC’s GPU, CPUI and overall performance. PC Wizard comes with a system stability assessment module too. Performance enthusiasts can also find details of CPU over clocking using the application.

Positive Points:
- Sleek UI.
- Multilingual application.
- Extensive CPU hardware and software info.
- Various benchmarks.

Negative Points:
-
Default installation packs in bloat ware.
- Displays ad in UI.

Conclusion:
PC Wizard is a feature packed utility to learn about PC configuration details and run various system benchmarks. It is clearly aimed at performance seeking users and geeks. It offers in-depth information for each hardware component and applications installed in your PC. The application does not make system slow as such. It is multilingual and not very hard to use. You can run a number of benchmarks in the application to assess PC components as well. It would have been perfect had it not been for the installer which bundles in bloatware and the ad displaying UI.

Rating: 3/5
