"Didn't work for me"

May 23, 2010  |  By markeconger

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

None that I saw

Cons

I downloaded a driver for my mouse that made it work very erratically.

Summary

I tried five system restores but none of them worked. I finally had to go to device manager and do a driver rollback to get my mouse to work properly.

"Very Poor:Recommendation=DO NOT BUY"

January 06, 2014  |  By bill593william

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

None at all

Cons

Installed wrong drivers

Summary

My computer is an Acer Aspire V3-571. I already have Driver Booster from Iorbit. which works well. In a moment of complete stupidity, I thought I would try this program. I paid the money. It installled the wrong Bluetooth drivers & I had to do a system restore to get rid of it. Although windows reported that system restore had not completed correctly the incorrect driver was gone & bluetooth working again.
Equally importantly I send a frankly rather rude email to the persons who sell Device Doctor Pro requesting Refund & received no reply.

"Didn't download correct drivers"

October 28, 2012  |  By Topdad32

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

Installed and scanned, indicating numerous outdated drivers

Cons

When attempting to download drivers, the results were for different models of printers, chipsets, video cards....

Summary

Use caution to ensure you are downloading the drivers for your specific model of hardware/software devices.

"Does Not Load"

August 04, 2012  |  By crsecon

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

Who knows?

Cons

Declared could not work because of incorrect checksums. Internet connection not found. Huh?

Summary

Another waste of my time.

"Wow this is now one of my most essential programs!"

July 31, 2012  |  By Matt_from_Iowa

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

It works. Gave me a huge list of specific drivers I needed for my hardware. Directed me to a link to download each one. I had to do the installing but that's fine--saved me hours and hours if I had tried to do this myself.

Cons

The downloads take awhile to get started. But they are directing me to a third party so no big deal.

"Doesn't work"

January 29, 2012  |  By Skyhawk007

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

None. As others have said, their site must be down, because after repeated attempts, the program will not work. It will not connect to their site to update my drivers.

Cons

Everything. What good is a program that doesn't work?
If I could, I would give Device Doctor a negative rating, or at the very least, a rating of ZERO.

Summary

It would appear that Device Doctor no longer works, and that their Network is permanently down for good. Too bad, I have used their service in the past to my satisfaction, but that is no longer the case.

"Driver source site unavailable"

January 19, 2012  |  By helgarsmith

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

Quick scan - but no information

Cons

Says it can't access the internet site so assumes there is no internet connection - not true, the site is unavailable and appears to have been so for some years.

Summary

Not being supported, don't bother

"Good, easy to use program for novice to expert."

December 04, 2011  |  By mrmagill

 |  Version: Device Doctor 1.0.0.1

Pros

Simple to use
Very intuitive interface

Cons

Only thing I could find was that (as it points out) previously downloaded driver updates may still show in the list of ones it identifies. It would be nice if that could be stopped.

Summary

If you're a novice, you'll love it: One button to click "SCAN" and off it goes. Experts will appreciate the simplicity as well, and the scanning speed. With the exception of the single "con" listed above, I found the program quite useful.

I have not had or used this product long enough to fairly judge it. However it has the characteristics of a fine product. It is free, simple to use and very promising. Time will tell.
