Nice use of fluid effects, but ultimately a somewhat shallow screensaver. In most modes, the clocks are somewhat hard to actually read (and the digital clocks lack distinguishing marks between hour/minute/seconds). Also, for multiple monitor users, the effect is exactly the same across both monitors, which was disappointing.

This is a pretty decent screensaver, and the price is certainly right! There are a variety of effects available, and they render pretty smoothly on my iMac. The only thing I can think to fault it for is the lack of a preview for the various effects options as you are looking them over. Instead, a static image is presented where many other screensavers would have a preview. Having to select an fx option, then accepting it to go back to the main preferences panel to preview it involves more steps than necessary.

I am no fan of Autodesk's Mac offerings (they gutted Cleaner like a fish), but I am glad to see someone making a nice looking, low CPU screensaver these days. The analog version is nice.

How the heck does a screensaver get a four-star rating if it has been reviewed ZERO TIMES? Hey, just asking.
