Windows 7: Great program to find best DNS Servers for your location

Great program to find best DNS Servers for your location

GRC's | DNS Nameserver Performance Benchmark

Very small and fast program that shows the speed of available free DNS servers. Pick the 2 that are best for you and your web access will likely improve.

Gibson has been around for a long time and puts out nice software. THis one is especially nice because it works well and provides data not available anywhere else that I know of.

There ia a similar open-source DNS Benchmark Utility "namebench" namebench - Open-source DNS Benchmark Utility - Google Project Hosting which I had used. Will be interesting if you can compare both.

Windows 7 x64 SP1

I played around with a couple of these, DNSBench and a.n.other but I eventually settled back on Google as there were problems with some of the faster ones. Like to hear from anyone who has found decent reliable DNS servers. :)
