Why virtualise your NAS environment?
AnalogX MaxMem promises to make the most out of your RAM
- Didn't speed up my PC
Given that MaxMem's free — and that it uninstalled cleanly from our tester PC — you might want to give it a try. As the saying goes, your mileage may vary.
In that way, it says, MaxMem ensures that your PC and programs get the maximum amount of memory they need, for top performance. "It says...?" asks the sceptical reader. Read on.
MaxMem monitors your system, and when your free memory reaches a certain low threshold, it automatically frees up memory. You can set the thresholds, and also tell the program how aggressive it should be about managing your memory.
There's a fair amount of controversy over whether programs like MaxMem really work or are needed, because Windows over the years has gotten much better at memory management than it used to be.
In my tests, we didn't find that the program sped up my PC, which is a Quad Core PC running at 2.4GHz and with 2GB of RAM. And when we told the program to use its aggressive mode, the situation worsened: our programs became slow and unresponsive.
However, MaxMem may perform differently from PC to PC.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
