Finally - A quick benchmarking tool for Mac that doesn't take an hour to run, and gives you a quick comparison to other system. Great for troubleshooting and optimizing. Thanks!

Inaccurate for CPU - I was watching my CPU activity durring the test, and it was only utilizing ONE THREAD! My i7 has EIGHT threads! This test is rubbish.

no comprehensive comparison - the diescription states that it is possible to compare results. I can only compare with top results and no details are visible. Whats the point? I need to compare with the results from another similar machine and see if there is something wrong with my memory or hard drive

Great for simple statistics - I used this for my school science fair project and it was perfect. It gave my simple data that I was able to compare with my other computers. It was also great that it worked with a computers running Windows and a Mac so I could compare the two. Overall this is an great software and I highly recommend it.
