MAJOR UPDATE TO THIS REVIEW! CHANGING FROM NOT RECCOMENDED TO RECCOMENDED.
PLEASE READ THE NEW UPDATE FOR 23/03/2014.
Catzilla has apparently listened to the negative feedback and fixed pretty well everything I had an issue with.
- improved their description to show exactly what you're getting
- upgraded what you actually get for your $15
- changed their product base from a subscription service to one-time purchase
- updated the software to fix bugs
I can now say that I'm happy that I spent $15 on a piece of good benchmarking software.
Now you get pretty much everything you could ask for from this product for $15. A consistent overall benchmark that seems to allow a good comparison between machines. Some nice features like being able to save all test scores to disk for later use, or being able to upload all your test scores to an online profile where you can compare against other users on the leaderboards.
I will leave the old version of the review below, but please note that the old review no longer reflects anything of the new updated version.
EVERYTHING UNDER THIS LINE IS OLD AND NO LONGER APPLIES TO THIS PRODUCT.
I AM ONLY KEEPING IT HERE AS A BIT OF HISTORY TO MAKE OLDER COMMENTS MAKE SENSE.
I wish I had realized that this is basically the "free" version of Catzilla (mentioned nowhere in the description) that you can download from their website at no charge. In order to actually get any real features, you have to sign up for a damn subscription (again mentioned nowhere in the description).
UPDATE: I didn't notice before but as another reviewer pointed out, it does allow you to run all the tests (vs just up to 720p like the free version), but that's the only difference between this and the free version that I've been able to see so far.
