Screensavers that are free are usually not worth my time and usually have problems, but this one is really very good, if not great. Good Work!

The screensaver isn't good for my system because it causes coil-screeching from the GPU in my system (I think it is the GPU). From what I have seen it isnt ugly or bad-looking though.

Awful. If I wanted a crappy staticy soundtrack with my screensaver, I would have searched for that. Ridiculous.

Screensavers Planet: Please note that sounds can be disabled for this screensaver. In the Screen Saver Settings panel, make sure the "Dark_Solar_System" screensaver is selected, then click "Settings". Change the setting from "Default" to "Set parameters" and then uncheck the box in front of "Sound". Click "OK" to save these settings. All sound effects, including the static you mention, should now be muted.
