With an amazing assortment of high-quality products, Top100Screensavers.com is our #2 ranked screensaver service and "TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award" winner. If you prefer digital masterpieces versus photos, Top100Screensavers.com is definitely for you. The screensavers on this site take you beyond reality with breathtaking graphics and fantastic animations.
Unlike our first pick, Screensavers.com, you must pay for most of the screensavers available on Top100Screensavers.com—although you can download a trial version for free. We didn’t like that this service attaches adware to its screensaver downloads without informing their customers.
We were highly impressed by Top100Screensavers.com’s abundant feature set. Within this service you’ll find a searchbox, in–depth descriptions of each screensaver and access to the site’s informative newsletter. With that said, our favorite feature offered by this service is the screensaver design program, which allows you to customize and design your own screensavers.
Although there are some basic screensavers available for free through Top100Screensavers.com, most of the products are shareware and cost money. You can try out the shareware screensavers for free by downloading a trial version, which uses a floating box to advertise the purchase information. After seeing the amazing screensavers on this site fill up our screens, it didn’t take us long to realize the fee charged for downloading these products is really a bargain.
Top100Screensavers.com usually has thousands of screensavers on their site, but due to a recent database issue, they have been forced to reload their inventory. We did not penalize them for this. The only thing we didn’t find on this site was a wallpaper section.
Ease of Use
Top100Screensavers.com is a very clean and easy–to–look–at website. The pages are not packed with flashy advertisements, which is fairly unorthodox in the world of screensaver services. We also did not encounter any popups or difficulties during the download process.
The screensavers available on Top100Screensavers.com are the best quality and the most entertaining of any screensaver website we encountered. You do get what you pay for with prices ranging from $9.99 to $17.95.
Top100Screensavers accepts submissions from any aspiring developer. So, if you think you’ve got what it takes, make a submission, and your screensaver may be the next screensaver on our monitor.
Top100Screensavers.com features many of the categories we feel are prudent. They also feature some screensaver categories not emphasized in our review, including special FX, computer and abstract.
Top100Screensavers.com states they will answer any email within 24 hours. They responded to our email in less than 12 hours. Top100Screensavers.com also provides its customers with a configuring tutorial, which is brief, but helpful.
The quality and uniqueness of the screensavers available at Top100Screensavers.com are as good as they come. If you don’t mind sacrificing a little cash and have the tools to deal with the adware that comes with each download, this site is an extraordinary option.
