Pros & Cons:

Top pick, full of features, supports many languages, flashdrive version available.
Nothing obvious.

Our Review:

GetDiz is a simple NFO viewer which includes customization options including changing the foreground and background colors, fonts & sizes. There is an option which allows a customizable list of key words and lets you set foreground and background colors to associate with the keywords.

The only feature that lets GetDiz down is the extremely large and somewhat cramped options menu item; the features could be housed more comfortably in a pop-up options dialogue box.

Upon installation, there is a little option to add a link that creates a shortcut to a proprietary software site but it's easy to uncheck and the link itself doesn't install any actual software. There is multilingual support of 25 different languages and the GIF export allows an easier way to share the files among others who may not have an alternative NFO viewer.

Automatic association with .txt, .diz, .nfo & .ini files can be set and an option is given to make the product portable during installation
