PC Check Diagnostic Software Suite Review

Overclocked Cafe has posted a review on Eurosoft´s PC Check diagnostic software suite.
I have been in the PC and Network Support industry for more years than I care to mention. When I first started out, I was installing new PC´s, and servicing the ailing ones. One of the tools we used was diagnostic software. Without a good diagnostic suite, figuring out just exactly what is wrong with a flaky machine is reduced to trial and error troubleshooting. Mind you, trial and error is another powerful tool. Sometimes, however, it is nice to be able to have software tell you that a RAM chip is bad, and hence the probable source of spurious, intermittent GPF´s. Or to have your diagnostic suite tell you that your hard drive has unmarked bad sectors, explaining that problem with corrupt files. When you build a machine, it is nice to be able to burn it in with solid diagnostic and stress testing, rather than wait and hope for the best.
