"it seem to search the drive for more than just drivers"

January 20, 2009  |  By whiskyraw

 |  Version: Driver Detective 6.1.0.91

Pros

I just downloaded it, regretfuly its nearly useless. Kissed 29.95 godbye.
Stay away if You smart, or specificaly, have Vista. major junk this program!

Cons

It does scann areas not revelent to its purpose and sends data out.
Hate it, just another snoop program. steered me to sound card driver update, new card! the supposedly new driver is huge: 62.6MB!!!! hard to believe..

Summary

It found a newer driver, but I just bought the card

.It marks the yellow mark to my video capture card (pinacle miro DC30) no drivers suggested. Yet I know that they exist and work with Vista 32. What a load of crap. And you have to do all the work of downloading. Also the old trick to farm the email: first enter the email and on *next* page is the price evident. If you back out, your email is already recorded on the web page. Active spider! Be careful and click on next without entering the email and you will see the price on next page first.
As for the current price: Jan.20/09
This program is advertised elsewhere for a special price: of 19.74US
yet on their site is 29.95US as the *special discount* no mentioning of the ongoing sale at all.

All in all I am very sorry I trusted the advertisement and lost the money unnecesserly. Should have done more research or at least look up these reports. This program is not worth a dime and likely will cause conflict on your pc for time to come, well next backup is gone from mine for sure. Kissing 29.95 godbye. What a waste.......

"DO NOT DOWNLOAD - LIARware - No free trial"

April 23, 2007  |  By sg2i

 |  Version: Driver Detective 6.1.0.91

Pros

Absolutely useless software trial. It does not offer one hour of trial - just scans your computer for drivers, and then DOES NOT allow you to download them.

Cons

It is obvious the lying software manufacturer use this website to scam people to download the crappy software, without giving an honest chance to check it out and decide whether it is worth the purchase.

MONEY DRIVEN THIEVES!

"Doesn't perform as advertised"

February 25, 2007  |  By airprtbridgeman

 |  Version: Driver Detective 6.1.0.91

Pros

Finds available downloads

Cons

1. Not all driver downloads are applicable to your specific applications

2. Some of the drivers once downloaded will not change the driver date to the new version on the device manager

3. If it doesn't change the driver date it will keep repeating the need to upgrade the driver date every time you scan your system

4. In general..D/D is very frutrating to use..sometimes it works and some times it doesn't!

"No Free Trial"

January 09, 2007  |  By DeepNeedle

 |  Version: Driver Detective 6.1.0.91

Pros

Since all it did was scan, there isn't much to say in it's favor.

Cons

Not free to try. It will tell you that you need a driver for a specific device, but it won't tell you which specific driver, nor will it let you download a driver. If you want to get drivers you gotta pay $29.95
