Our Authors and Contributors
The tech journalists at Speedupnew have years of experience with personal computers and reviewing software. Some of our contributors have been comparing and reviewing programs all the way back to the late 90's using Windows 98 PC's. Which means, they had to also suffer through the Windows ME (Millennium Edition) days of PC operating system havoc ;-)
The SpeedupNew Crew: From our old Pentium CPU's to present days. We have found great pride and pleasure in finding software to get the fastest speed possible without diving into the murky world of overclocking. A software-based PC optimizer has always been our preferred method for improving the responsiveness of our systems. We also have many years of expertise in optimizing our online connection settings with Internet optimization software.
The PC optimization software solutions we review, are the safest and most effective answers to improving your computer and Internet speed. Without further ado, here's our team of contributors.
Author: Robert J (aka Tek)
A software reviewer for just over 20 years, RJ is also very skilled in Machine Language coding, C#, and Unity. Using his highly trained programmer's perspective to analyze a program's code for effectiveness and safety, he has compared and reviewed software since 1998.
One of the first products he reviewed was Norton Utilities. He was so impressed with how easy it was to tweak his system, he quickly started seeking out even more advanced solutions. Today's PC optimizer programs are so advanced, it puts those original utilities to shame.
When he's not being obsessed over testing and reviewing optimizers - he enjoys; spending time with family, building his own and his friends' gaming rigs, playing PC games online, and helping others with tech problems.
He recently built a monster gaming rig with a water-cooled GTX 1080ti and did a GPU mod to lower the pump noise. Combined with his favorite optimizer, his rig has some of the highest frame-rates ever recorded for a PC. Now he's looking forward to the 2080ti, along with optimizing the whole new system, to create the ultimate 4K desktop gaming PC.
Likes: Water cooling, and soft white LED's in his gaming PC and behind his ultra wide monitor. Getting his computer to operate at high performance while still maintaining a quiet environment.
Dislikes: Fan noise.
Favorite Software: System Mechanic Pro because it keeps every thing running smoothly at high speed without building up heat like overclocking does - so I can turn my system fans way down to the quietest setting.
Author: Evelyn B (aka Ava)
Ever since getting her first laptop in university, Eve has been tweaking settings and personalizing her Windows notebook. Five computers later, she is still finding ways to make performance better.
A proud mother with several degrees in computer sciences and web development, we trust Eve with everything to do with tweaking the Windows registry to adjusting all of our Windows 10 settings for optimal speed and privacy. She also has incredible deal-hunting skills to find the best prices on any software we're interested in.
Likes: A perfectly running laptop. Constantly finding new things to tweak in Windows with every edition and update. Good tweaking software that helps immensely, so she can spend more time with family and friends. Loves playing PC games at high video settings on her laptop with the help of her favorite tuning programs and optimizing software.
Dislikes: Publishing her private information online ;-)
Favorite Software: I love SM Pro to boost my laptop's capabilities. It lets me play the latest PC games, where I could not before. But I also have a soft spot for various other utilities I have used and reviewed over the years. Oh so many great tune-up programs available today. For web browser software, I love both Firefox and Google Chrome. It is so hard to choose. I've flip-flopped quite often.
Author: Samuel D (aka SeriousSam)
A software reviewer with over a decade of experience, Also, as a self-taught coder, Sam loves to tinker within Windows and constantly writes batch file scripts (Windows cmd files) to help with everything from adjusting volume levels, desktop monitor brightness, and CPU priority before starting a program or game.
A big believer in having the minimum amount of programs start on boot. He has it narrowed down to just his Logitech driver software, fan speed program, and of course the automatic optimization of SM Pro. He recently tweaked his old Windows 7 fan control program to work with his new Windows 10 desktop gaming rig. Took a little longer than he expected, but mission accomplished.
Likes: Writing reviews and comparing software to help other PC users find the best available. Being patient with new users because I remember what it was like when I got my first computer.
Dislikes: "Know it alls" who forgot the first step in learning anything is admitting you don't know it all.
Favorite Software: I was a strong believer in Advanced SystemCare for years, but System Mechanic Pro has improved so much over the last few years, it's currently unmatched.
