"Incredibly useful"

March 09, 2015

 |  Version: 3DP Chip 15.02

Pros

I found this program to very helpful. Saves me from having to run all over the net hoping I downloaded the right driver for my hardware. It's a small download and installs quickly.

Cons

Some times it will have a hiccup on a certain piece of hardware and wont install the most current one it lists.

When you try to download the network drivers (ethernet or wifi), it will send you to the website to download 3DP Net or open it if you already have it installed. Can be annoying at time but *shrugs*

User interface has room for improvements

When you install this, there is an option that is checked by default to install some crapware (like many other legit programs), just click custom install and uncheck the boxes.

Summary

Great piece of software. Anti-Virus may block it claiming it is Malware/PUPs but it is a false positive.. sorta. I will install some junk if you are not paying attention during the initial install but JUST UNCHECK THE BOXES and it only install the main program, it's not rocket science people. I've used this program for the last 2 years, as long as you uncheck the boxes, you will be fine.

"Excellent utility software, very capable"

February 28, 2015  |  By omegaman2

 |  Version: 3DP Chip 15.02

Pros

Unlike other driver finders, and although I did have to make a search, from the results of the search I found the correct driver for my video card! I had to re-install my operating system of Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit), however, I am confident I'm going to receive the exact device driver, drivers, as before. A small utility program that doesn't take up much space on my Sony VAIO desktop computer system of 1GB of main memory (RAM), 200GB hard disk drive, Intel Pentium 4 CPU, at 2.4GHz, and NVIDIA video card with 128GB of memory.

Cons

I really don't know what some of the complaints are about with members giving this very good, capable driver finder. The only thing wrong that I notice is that the layout and design could be more spacious, and the lettering more organized.

Summary

A very capable driver finder.

"Useful for finding drivers..."

May 29, 2013  |  By mek8630

 |  Version: 3DP Chip 13.04

Pros

This is a useful program for finding drivers...

Cons

I have used this program plenty enough times to know that there isn't anything wrong with it.

Summary

I wouldn't read too much into the negative comments on here. I think most likely they just aren't using it properly....

"STAY AWAY FROM THIS TROJAN"

September 23, 2012  |  By jONNYDEATH

 |  Version: 3DP Chip 12.08

Pros

None unless you like your privacy violated and your OS corrupted

Cons

It's a trojan of some kind.
It borks up system files beyond repair and you'll have to perform a clean install.
Task manager is corrupted.
Notifications bar is corrupted.
Windows Restore and Repair are corrupted.

Summary

The person behind this belongs in jail and if our public servants were spying on the corporations(which have absolutely no human rights what so ever) instead of us,this crap wouldn't be happening.

Get it together CNET.
You're endorsing hackerware.

"Not reliable"

July 22, 2012  |  By MusicScoreOst4Life

 |  Version: 3DP Chip 12.06

Pros

Maybe ok program in combination with a formatted pc with new installed windows OS.

Cons

I have not downloaded any drivers because i already have the same drivers (same date) on my system.
In other words, this program wants me to download the same drivers.

Summary

I downloaded audio ati hd driver from realtek website and videocard driver from AMD website.
The rest of the drivers are installed by slimdrivers and driverpack solution.
If you already used driverpack solution and installed drivers through slimdrivers, but still want a second/third opinion, then get drivereasy for example.
