Review

Hardware Monitor is a reliable Mac application that reads all accessible hardware sensors installed on your system and display the temperatures in multiple ways. This handy tool can prove to be very useful if you want to accurately monitor the temperature of your Mac computer components.

After launching Hardware Monitor, it will automatically detect what sensors are built into your Mac (you can view them by accessing the "Preferences" menu, under the "Sensors" tab) and display them in a several modes. By default, this tool will display the sensor temperatures with the help of two windows that will appear on your desktop as well as a dock and a Menu Bar icon. You can easily change that and select any of the additional viewing modes with just a few clicks of a mouse.

The program not only accurately monitors all the built-in sensors and displays the temperatures but it also notifies you with the help of customizable audio alerts if a sensor exceeds the maximum limit or changes its value by a specified amount.

In addition, Hardware Monitor also allows you to create any number of "probes" (artificial sensors) in order to monitor a large variety of other sensors like disk usage, free memory and disk space or network errors.

In short, if you need a reliable hardware monitoring tool that reads all the sensors that are available on your Mac computer, then your should definitely give Hardware Monitor a chance.
