"Did such a good job I bought the pro version, but . ."

June 14, 2016  |  By IonDeSparrow

2016-06-14 20:43:03  |  By IonDeSparrow

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.4.0.769

Pros

Made it quite easy to learn which drivers on my windows 7 laptop were in need of updating, then followed through with smooth installation. Since the updates it has been much more responsive.

Cons

I wasn't nearly so lucky with my Windows 7 Desktop. I'm not sure what happened, but I had to uninstall the software and also do a restore to a few days prior. As the desktop is used primarily by someone else I'm hesitant on trying it again.

Summary

Driver updates were very helpful with my laptop's general performance, but didn't seem to have any positive impact on syncing with my smartphone.

"So-So product"

June 13, 2016  |  By Paulleewogg

2016-06-13 14:58:46  |  By Paulleewogg

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.4.0.769

Pros

Finds driver updates and makes you feel good about your computer being up to date

Cons

Misses or doesn't properly install driver updates which leaves you feeling bad about your computer not being up to date

Summary

I've been running this for about 6 months on my windows 10 laptop. I liked it at first but after awhile I noticed it was telling me there were drivers that were waaaaaay out of date and that more current drivers had been posted months ago. Which is puzzling since I run it every couple weeks or so. Why didn't it catch it last time??? Some of these updates I swear I've done before, so... is it not installing properly or too stupid to uninstall/overwrite the old drivers so it isn't telling you to do the same ones repeatedly? I dunno... for free it's ok, i guess, but because it doesn't seem to work properly, I sure wouldn't want to dish out money for an inferior product. My 2 cents.

"IOBIT Drive Booster 3 Killed two of my USB ports"

May 13, 2016  |  By willofarm

2016-05-13 19:33:31  |  By willofarm

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.3.1.749

Pros

Updated some drivers

Cons

Killed two of my USB ports (My most used ones). I have tried everything and can't get them to work, not even in safe mode.

Summary

I was reluctant to use this for the first time after reading a couple recent reviews with less than stellar results, but my computer was getting old and slow and thought I'd risk it. I so wish I didn't now. It started it's program and scanned and updated drivers and everything seemed to work great, then I went to plug in my wireless mouse on my laptop and the USB drive didn't recognize my mouse like it has 100's of time before. I then tried the other USB on the other side and same thing. Dead! I tried a couple thumb drives too to make sure it wasn't my mouse. Same, nothing. This program disabled two of my USB ports and have tried everything to get them back. I've uninstalled them all and reinstalled them all, had multiple IT techs at my work look at it and they can't get them working either. They said they have never seen a program kill a USB port before, but congratulation Iobit you've done it! The only saving grace is I have 4 USB ports on my laptop and the other two still work (thank goodness). Otherwise I'd be upset beyond belief.

"Great tool, must-have on all my pcs since I found it"

April 09, 2016  |  By Himeko7

2016-04-09 16:48:14  |  By Himeko7

 |  Version: Driver Booster 3 3.3.1.749

Pros

I'm usually wary of this kind of "booster" apps, but this is a very solid app, well maintained by a large company behind it and no adware on install besides some free e-book offer or so. The free version has very few limitations, mostly just limiting you to update drivers 1 by 1 rather than all in a batch. Pro version lets you backup the drivers before update and downloads them faster. I love specially an extra tool it has which removes old unused drivers "clean unplugged devices". Tried a few of this kind of driver udpater apps, wouldn't use any other.

Cons

Nothing bad to say about it, maybe the payment model, I'd rather a reasonable one-time fee than paying a yearly sub.
