I don’t usually use scrensavers. Because I’m usually very active on the computer most of the time they are even disabled. Anyway, I do like to have a nice screensaver when I need to look at it. Default Windows screensavers are old, plain and boring. So, why not look for the best ones out there? I did and I’m bringing my discoveries to you. I did select the ones I consider the best, quality is always better over quantity. I do want tons of wallpapers so I can have several to choose from… but I really don’t need the same amount of screensavers, I just need some really good ones…

Do you have any screensaver you want to suggest?
Note: I’ve personally downloaded and tested all of these screensavers, anyway take into account that Screensavers are executable files and therefore it’s best to use a Anti-Virus program before installing them. Use at your own risk.
