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 It scans your PC for out-of-date, missing, and mismatched drivers and downloads and installs up-to-date versions safely, thanks to automatic restore points and driver backups.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Out-of-date drivers: A common complaint about driver update utilities is the occasional out-of-date driver, which can happen with a database of more than 3 million drivers (and for reasons beyond the software's scope or control).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.

"Problematic - upgrade to pro doesn't increase speed"

January 15, 2014  |  By d1414AZ

 |  Version: DriverEasy 4.5.2.21601

Pros

It does a decent job of identifying outdated drivers. Some of the drivers may be nearly impossible to find on your own (without exposing yourself to viruses/fake drivers.) The interface showing old versus new drivers, along with hardware/vendor IDs is helpful.

Cons

The outdated drivers may not need to be updated. It uses vendor and device IDs to identify drivers. The problem is that some manufacturers may create proprietary drivers for these devices. You'll end up with a driver that matches the device, but is incompatible due to other hardware present.

Additionally, I upgraded to pro to increase the download speed but the upgrade didn't help. The download speed is still below 37KB per second. If you're upgrading for that purpose alone, you may want to rethink.

Finally, tech. support seems to be non-responsive. There isn't a support forum available.

Summary

The Professional Upgrade didn't increase the download speed. I would stick with the free version and use the interface to manually find the new drivers on my own.

"This program DriverEasy does not work!"

March 04, 2013  |  By jibbertyjibberty

 |  Version: DriverEasy 4.4.2.28732

Pros

Not Applicable

Cons

No tech support
Not correct drivers
Drivers do not work
The program does not work

Summary

I could use my bluetooth dongle to retrieve pictures from my cell phone before DriverEasy. DriverEasy updated drivers would not work, so I put my old original working driver back, now they will not work. I can reach no one at tech support (2 weeks) so please do not buy DriverEasy. I have learned a lot about bluetooth drivers, that is what I got for my purchase.

CNET I like your website a lot, please remove DriverEasy from your site. I strongly feel it will hurt your image. thank you
