Reviews for this release

I was very pleasantly surprised by this GUI for smartmontools/smartctl. Before, I worked with smartmontools from the command line. Because I don't need smartctl a lot, I kept forgetting the exact switches I wanted. This tool makes everything you want to do with smartmontools a lot easier: starting SMART tests and checking their progress, looking at the event log and error log, updating the smartctl device database, everything. All the things I can currently think of are provided. The GUI is simple and easy. I didn't test some of the device SMART monitoring features (temperature, health) but they are available and seem to be easy adjustable to anyone's needs with tray icons and mail alerts. Feedback: perhaps a way to see the smartmontools version from the app, and a way to easily use stand-alone installs of (newer) versions of smartmontools than the one that's shipped with the application. Overall: an excellent GUI for smartmontools.
