What would make this gadget better for me.
Let me say from the outset that I think all your gadgets are top of the line. The absolute best gadgets out there! They all contain an amazing amount of information. What would be better for me would be if there was an option to show "Less" information. When it comes to hard drives what I want to see most is activity. A bar graph for each hard drive that can show read and writes together similar to how DU Meter show bandwidth (solid bar graph with overlaid green for download Red for upload and yellow for both. Thanks for producing such quality Gadgets. (feels a donation is in order)

The Complete Desktop!
The drives, cpu, gpu and network meter has been the most important part of my desktops for years now. Gives an great overview and works perfectly.

Cool with a low load
I'm using the gadgets for a good time, more then a year. Works fine with a low load of your system and when a new version is released the software warns you.

Drives Meter
I'm from Germany (Munich). I use your CPU, Network, GPU & Drives meters, and find them all very great. Thank you very much for that. If you can still show the Drive-Temperature at Drives Meter, than this utility means real perfect. Always you make a great work!

Your gadgets overall
I use your CPU, Network, GPU & Drives meters, and find them all very useful as I like to know what's going on with my systemat any time.
I, like many others, appreciate that you provide them free and with annoying ads etc., thank you very much for that, and I'm particularly thankful for the recent Drives Meter upgrade from 4 to 8 drives, as I have 7 in my PC.
Keep up the great work :)

Nice work again
I really enjoy your gadgets and this one is really useful, unlike many of drive meter gadget yours displays activity and of course keep your particular design =) If I may, it would be really more clear and readable if you can add a separation between every drive (just like on GPU Meter). Anyway, nice work and thank you for all your gadgets and to continue to improve them ;)

The Second of Two Very Useful Gadgets
Along with Network Meter, this Gadget is a truly-useful desktop device. It nicely monitors hard-disc usage, displaying it on a two-minute historigraph, updated each second. Even if one doesn't need to know how much the disc is in use second-by-second, this Gadget still tells when the disc is in use, right on the screen, which is better than the old-fashioned disc-usage light that used to be on either the drive, itself, or on the front of the computer, someplace. The historigraph, itself, is autoranging by default, which probably is right for most users, but a fixed-range setting is also available. Unfortunately, the fixed-range setting is ineffective, and the Gadget auto-ranges even with a fixed-range setting. Still, it and the Network Meter are just the things for someone who desires to know just what's going on inside that box, and drive details are available by clicking the title.

Great app on startup
This app is great to observe what is going on during startup with drive access. Usually firewall and anitviral stuff is running at that time so it shows you when you can expect to have full real time control of your computer.
Recommend and will make donation after evaluating 6 months.

Drives Meter, CPU and GPU meters
I have your meters for as long as I can remember and I have always loved them and also recommend them to my friends. Simply Awesome work!

Very good
This is great just like the other meters, but I wish it could read all six of my drives instead of just four.

I have used Network Meter, CPU Usage, GPU Meter and Drives Meter since they were made. I can monitor my computer from the desktop and even know what is going on, most of the time, just doing this. Having monitored all for as long as I have I can tell if Diskeeper is active, when anything is going on line, such as the Weather Channel gadget and much more. More important I can tell when something is running that shouldn't be, after checking to see just what is accessing my HD and the internet. In other words, I love these gadgets and have come to depend on them.
