I got this months ago from their web site. I've used it several times. Essentially a very boring tool UNTIL something goes wrong with your system, at which point it earns it's keep.

I started getting weird slow downs and went with the "old reliable" TechTool Pro which promptly told me there was nothing wrong with my computer. I remembered I had this thing sitting around doing nothing and decided to use it. Scannerz immediately started picking up what it calls irregularities - and a lot of them too.

Long story short - my heads had apparently crashed, but not so severely that they were unreadable. TechTool Pro wouldn't pick this up, Scannerz did.

Scannerz does really nothing but drive and drive related system testing, but it's picking stuff up better than anything else. It's easy to use, (I could teach my dog to use it!! :-) ) but their manual needs to be re-written because it's way too long and way too technical for most people, IMHO.

Considering how inexpensive this tool is, I'd say it's well worth the money.

Really good product. Does what is says. It's simple to use. Has manual and help that are good. About the only thing I see as a shortcoming is that it doesn't support Tiger. Some of us that still have to user older versions could have really benefited from a Tiger version. Spotlight seems to me to be terrible on Tiger and Leopard, esp. on laptops
