Well I am not well experienced with the competition but I can truly say this is more than enough for most of my PC Info needs. Need interface as well.

Speccy crashes immediately every time I open it. I downloaded it as an alternative to Aida64, and am going back to the drawing board to try to find something else that might work for me. :(

When trying to start speccy on win 8 with the firewall turned on it freezes everything to a crawl or a complete halt, the keyboard not working even after ctrl+alt+delete, only the mouse moving. The only way to unstuck it is through the power off button. What an awful piece of software!

A lot has happened in the past 9 years; since last comment/review in this "Speccy" outline.
Piriform was acquired by Avast in July 2017 https://press.avast.com/avast-acquires-piriform-maker-of-ccleaner
Read the press release with a substantial grain of salt

Speccy is a very basic system reader.
Free version comes in 2 varieties ...
Portable by PortableApps. com . . . . "specPortable"
Installer by CCleaner (alias. Piriform/Avast) . . . . "Speccy"

Before Avast acquired "Piriform", PortableApps.com released (portable) "Speccy" as did Piriform under the same (installer) name, "Speccy".

Avast's reputation IMO leaves a lot to be desired, if you have ever tried to uninstall "Avast AV"
... good luck ... they are reluctant to let you go.
For years I used original "Piriform" ... CCleaner + Speccy.
But now I use other more thorough programs/developers. Have you got your 3rd eye open ?

Cloud based services by Avast/Piriform ?
I am not prepared to allow Avast access to my machines under any circmstances.

Good and nifty program. It wasn't able to detect the exact model of my Intel onboard graphics chip, though. It only displayed the generation of that chip.
