Softpedia Editor's Review for Hardware ID Extractor
Shows identification info about your computer hardware
Written by Elena Opris on April 1st, 2013
Hardware ID Extractor is a tiny and portable piece of software which lists key details on your hard drives. It can be easily handled, even by less experienced users.
Since installation is not necessary, you can store Hardware ID Extractor on a USB flash drive or any other removable device, in order to directly run the executable file.
Alternatively, you can simply drop it on any location on the hard drive and immediately access it.
The most important aspect is that the Windows Registry does not receive new entries (therefore, reducing the risk of system errors), and no leftover files can be found on the hard drive when deleting the app. Plus, you can carry Hardware ID Extractor in your pocket whenever you're on the move.
The interface of the application consists of a standard window with a common layout. There are no other features available, aside from the tool's main function. So, all you have to do is select the hard drive from a drop-down list, and Hardware ID Extractor instantly shows its details.
These focus on the CPU ID, family, speed and vendor, along with RAM (in bytes and megabytes). The ID of the selected partition can be revealed through the simple click of a button.
The straightforward application has a good response time, instantly shows information on the hard drives, and is very low-demanding when it comes to the CPU and system memory, so it's not a concern to the computer's overall performance.
No error dialogs have been displayed in our tests and Hardware ID Extractor did not hang or crash. Unfortunately, no recent updates have been made to the tool, but Hardware ID Extractor can be seamlessly figured out, even by users with less or no experience in software apps.
