Clock Saver is a free screen saver that displays a digital clock. This screensaver isn't very flashy in terms of design, but it gets the job done - and helps users be punctual in the process. Many people have PCs and laptop computers in their bedroom, and have considered using their computer as an alert system in place of more traditional alarm clocks. Clock saver is a program that offers an unobtrusive way to glance at the time while the computer is asleep.

The program features a sleek retro design that accurately captures the soft lighting of a real LED clock. Many users may enjoy installing Clock Saver because it accomplishes everything that it advertises. However, this program cannot be customized at all by the user, and comes loaded with programs that you probably won't want to install on your computer. Clock Saver was developed using Adobe Flash, so the program should work on almost all computers that can run Flash programs. However, some users may need to install or update Flash to run this software. The program connects to Windows' internal clock time configuration.

Clock Saver has a large, soft blue LED light display that rests against a black backdrop. This screensaver looks beautiful, but the lack of customization ability may frustrate some users. For example, users cannot change the clock's color from its default turquoise hue. The only option that Clock Saver gives its user in terms of customization is the ability to change the screensaver's resolution between two options, 1024x768 and 800x600. This is an intriguingly strange design choice, especially considering that a large number of monitors today have widescreen displays.

Some users have reported that the program is buggy and loaded with unnecessary extra programs. These programs can be uninstalled relatively easily, but some users may be frustrated with the notion that a program as simple as this one is loaded with a large number of unnecessary extras. Clock Saver probably isn't the best clock screen saver program in existence, but it aesthetically-pleasing and free to use.

Pros:

  • Clock Saver installs within less than a minute.
  • This program easily works on all computers that can run Flash-based software.
  • Clock Saver has a very sleek and contemporary design.

Cons:

  • Clock Saver doesn't include any features that allow users to customize the software.
  • This program comes loaded with a lot of optional software that has nothing to do with Clock Saver.
  • This screensaver only offers two screen resolutions to choose from.
