MenuMeters renders details better, shows disk activity
Authored by: kkL on May 23, '08 03:41:31PM

iStat can't show disk activity in menu icon, you have to click it to get graph. MenuMeters' aqua diodes are very nice and as good as floppy diodes on Amiga :)

iStat's CPU graph is wrapped in a border and has 2-pixel padding on top and bottom. That's pretty wasteful for such tiny graph. MenuMeters uses entire available space.

Memory Pie Chart has rendering glitch – a bit on the left is cropped (my OCD can't stand this)

iStat beats MenuMeters in quality of dropdowns and has temperature and RPM meters, but for me these aren't more important than disk activity and icon rendering.
