Pros

  • Free

Cons

  • Didn't speed up my PC

Bottom Line

Given that MaxMem's free — and that it uninstalled cleanly from our tester PC — you might want to give it a try. As the saying goes, your mileage may vary.

Would you buy this?

In that way, it says, MaxMem ensures that your PC and programs get the maximum amount of memory they need, for top performance. "It says...?" asks the sceptical reader. Read on.

MaxMem monitors your system, and when your free memory reaches a certain low threshold, it automatically frees up memory. You can set the thresholds, and also tell the program how aggressive it should be about managing your memory.

There's a fair amount of controversy over whether programs like MaxMem really work or are needed, because Windows over the years has gotten much better at memory management than it used to be.

In my tests, we didn't find that the program sped up my PC, which is a Quad Core PC running at 2.4GHz and with 2GB of RAM. And when we told the program to use its aggressive mode, the situation worsened: our programs became slow and unresponsive.

However, MaxMem may perform differently from PC to PC.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
