Editors' Review

DriverEasy Professional updates and maintains your Windows PC's drivers automatically with a few easy steps. It scans your PC for out-of-date, missing, and mismatched drivers and downloads and installs up-to-date versions safely, thanks to automatic restore points and driver backups. You can schedule scans, install drivers one by one or all at once, remove drivers, and more.

Pros

Cheaper than service: For technophobes, DriverEasy is cheaper than a computer technician's hourly rate, and maybe less intimidating, too!

Unplugged devices: DriverEasy can update drivers for devices that may be part of your system but aren't plugged in at the time, like phones and removable drives.

Driver Backup and Driver Restore: The Driver Backup tool creates custom driver backup files that can be saved in folders or ZIP files. The Driver Restore tool uses them to roll back changes, if necessary.

Cons

Out-of-date drivers: A common complaint about driver update utilities is the occasional out-of-date driver, which can happen with a database of more than 3 million drivers (and for reasons beyond the software's scope or control). We recommend always creating restore points and backing up existing drivers in any case.

Bottom Line

Users who don't want to do their own PC maintenance still want to keep their systems clean, safe, and up-to-date. DriverEasy Professional can contribute to that mission for a lot less than a computer tech would charge, simply to look at your PC.

"A pain in the ass"

January 27, 2016

2016-01-27 09:05:37

 |  Version: Driver Easy 4.9.14.36094

Pros

Finds a lot of drivers.

Cons

What's the point of having a driver program when you have to install the drivers manually anyway? I can find drivers on my own.

Summary

Get IObit's Driver Booster instead.

Pros

If I could get it to run, I might find one pro.

It will not work. I've tried on two different computers on two different networks, and I get a disconnection error every time that the program tries to access the driver database.

"Saved my sanity and works damn well."

November 02, 2015

2015-11-02 01:35:08

 |  Version: Driver Easy 4.9.6.35549

Pros

- Accurate data base
- Fast scan
- Fully usable, even on free license
- Helps keep drivers up to date and organised
- Great tech support

Cons

- Free license limits are slightly inconvenient, but damn it IT'S FREE LICENSE
- Hasn't found a true one yet

Summary

I've been struggling with installing my drivers, because I recently installed windows 7 on my slightly old laptop, that used to be running on ubuntu, and I was shocked how hard it is go get the right one even thought you have device manager. I installed a bunch of different drivers, but some of features just didn't work. When I was close to loosing my sanity I found this program. Scan was fast, and I downloaded drivers without any problems, finally my laptop works, as it should. I would heartily recommend this software to everyone, who have to get drivers, and don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of time and nerves. You can find it on developer's site (https://www.drivereasy.com/DriverEasy_Setup.exe).
Now a word about company. I was surprised by customer's service, the contact was nearly immediate and helpful. Company makes an impression of user friendly, and I'm looking forward to using this software in future just to keep my drivers up to date, and organised.
