A bit pricey, needs graphics, but functional
I almost did not purchase this because of the review that said it wanted keychain access and changed browser settings, but it seemed strange that Apple would leave a malicious app in the store, so I went ahead and bought it after doing research.
It did not want keychain access, possibly because I did not ask it to send me emails if it found a problem. To send emails it probably needs an email password, which it stores in the keychain as it should. It also did not change my Safari or Chrome settings as far as I could tell.
The app seems unobtrusive, and correctly scanned all my disks, even ones in a Probox attached via eSata. I was sort of disappointed not to get a graphical picture of all my disks in color coded form, with the ability to list attributes by clicking, but I found a way to do that after a couple of minutes.
It is a little pricey for what it does, especially since it uses smartmontools under the covers, but it is not malicious and seems to work properly.
Valuable Info when you need it the most
I’ve been using SMARTReporter for years, it usually just sits in my menu bar, unnoticed but today it turned red and i got a desk-top notification that my drive might fail soon.
Valuable information for sure, even though i keep regular backups, it’s still a hassle when your drive dies on you out of nowhere…
There is a service many of you may not be aware of however, you can send a report when the icon turns red and before you know it, you receive an email with a thorough and easy to understand evaluation of the info gatherd by SMARTReporter.
It turns out i don’t have to run right out and replace the drive today, but i do need to keep an eye on things, and look to replacing it in the near future.
Kudos to the developers of SMARTReporter and thanks!
not what I was hoping for
OK, maybe my need wasn't correctly lined up with this product - but I thought it would give me access to the SMART data reporting from the HDD - specifically temperature. The only way to get temperature on the drives is deep in a text-only window. All the easy to access data is surface level, error related. So this turned out to be useless for my need. I would love an app that offered this user interface, on temperature as reported via SMART.
