    "Programmer User Only"

    October 15, 2013   |   By rmcman

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    None that I can find.

    Cons

    If you have a problem, that DriverBoost does not automatically correct, which is many by the way...you need to be a Programmer in order to make the necessary updates.

    Summary

    I wouldn't buy. Find a Software that is easier to manage. Oh, and by the way, be careful of their 60 Day Guarantee. They will not refund past it.

    "Worth its weight in gold."

    July 21, 2013   |   By Ruthalie

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    Has to be the easiest fix!

    Cons

    Not too good to be true!

    Summary

    Well, I just have to say that Driverboost came along just in time. You see, my daughter's wedding day was coming up and she wanted specific music for the reception. Of course, with all the planning going on I did not know what to do when the CD driver in my PC went out. How was I to know there was even a driver update needed to just play or record a CD. I had promised her and I just needed the music! As little as I know about computer maintenance, I Googled my problem and Driverboost came up with some good results from customers. It was a little difficult for me to figure out, cause I did have to do a download to my computer and that was tricky. I had to call the Customer Support number, but they walked me through the first scan on my system, and guess what?! Whatever that thing does, it fixed the problem. I guess I had some other problems that would have come up if I hadn't of done that scan. So, I'm really pleased with my purchase. Oh. And, we got the CD made and the Wedding Day was beautiful...especially the music! Thank you, Driverboost.

    "Great Product for Computer Issues"

    July 15, 2013   |   By jonzgirl9267

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    DriverBoost is a great product to help update your drivers. I was having issues with my old computer in which all of my drivers were not up to date. After purchasing DriverBoost the program scanned my entire computer and matched my drivers with the most up to date drivers I needed. After my drivers were updated my computer was running smoothly, and I was not receiving error messages anymore. The interface was user friendly in which I had no issues understanding what was being done or how to do anything. If you have any questions in regards to this software Customer Service is always there to answer questions you may have. I have recommended DriverBoost to others. I am glad that I did because some of my friends and family were having the same problems that I was. After they purchased DriverBoost and went through the process they were happy as well. It is good to know there are companies that go above and beyond to help others. Thank you for the support.

    Cons

    I had no issues with DriverBoost

    Summary

    Great product for a great price. Customer Service is awesome when answering questions. I will continue to use this product so my computer is problem free.

    "Empowering Experience"

    July 08, 2013   |   By Skylockproductions

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    This was just amazing! Using Driverboost to update my printer driver was an empowering experience. No, really. I had lost the CD and could not find an update from the manufacturer for my machine. This was very frustrating, because I had some important financials I needed printed immediately and I was sweating out how to get it done. There was actually a technical support representative at the manufacturer who was going to charge me double for what I can now do for myself simply using Driverboost software. I can say I am very pleased with their product. And, I can continue to use this software to update other drivers on my computer as they are needed. I have never had such an efficient, quick fix that saved me a lot of time and money when I needed it the most. Thanks for inventing one tool that can handle any driver issues that might come up in the future, so I'll have one less thing to stress over!

    Cons

    I am told that I could have found something similar for free, however I don't really feel "buyer's remorse" about purchasing this product due to the fact that 1) I had a positive experience and 2) I know the software works properly and could trust that I wasn't going to do more damage in trying to alleviate the problem.

    Summary

    It was definitely worth the expense. And, I can use it again for other drivers and updates as they come up. I'm satisfied with the transaction and outcome.

    "Super effective software!"

    July 06, 2013   |   By pushypenguin

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    The pros of this software are that it's a)easy to use: all you have to do is click the green button and let the software take care of the rest. Also, there is a nifty pie chart that shows you the % of your drivers that need updating, the % that are fine, and the % of devices without drivers. I like seeing the breakdown. b) the software works really fast. I normally just let it run in the background while I check my email or facebook and it's always done around the same time I am. c)there are no gimmicks or ads with this software, you get exactly what you pay for without a lot of the junk that comes with some of the other downloadable software out there.

    Cons

    The only think that could make it better would be if it were free, lol.

    Summary

    I really like this software, and I think that anyone could use it successfully. It's a really easy way to keep your computer running well.

    "Great Product for Computer Issues"

    July 05, 2013   |   By sweetgirl9267

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    This is a great program to help with driver issues. After doing a search on the web for programs like this I was very much satisfied with this company. This company has had great reviews on the products it sells. Every time I logged onto my computer I would receive error messages in regards to my drivers. I am no computer pro so I was glad to find this program. I installed the program and it immediately detected the issues with my drivers. I found out that my drivers were out of date and needed updated. This program took care of it for me. I now do not have error messages popping up. Thank goodness for that. One of my family members was having the same issue so I recommended this program to him. He purchased this program and was amazed as well. It is good to know there that this company does what it can to help others. Thank you very much.

    Cons

    I have not found any cons with this product.

    "This is a high quality and effective product."

    June 23, 2013   |   By LiamsMom11

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    DriverBoost is user-friendly, fast, and effective way to keep your PC drivers up-dated. It immediately fixed my errors, and now keeping my drivers updated is as easy as running the program. I love it when PC stuff can be hassle free.

    Cons

    I haven't encountered any problems with the actual program, and it's very affordable so I can't really even complain about the price.

    Summary

    I'm very satisfied with the quality of DriverBoost. Before I got it I had to find out which drivers were corrupted/out of date and track down all of the websites and update them all individually, which lets face it, can be very time consuming. This product streamlined the entire process and made it all very easy for me. Anything that can save me time is a huge bonus for me, b/c I'm a stay-at-home Mom who works part-time via my computer. I'd recommend DriverBoost to anyone who wants to keep their PC running like new, without spending a ton of money to do so.

    "Seems To Find All My Drivers Pretty Fast"

    June 11, 2013   |   By JulieAnne2013

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    I usually scan my computer with Driverboost after I clean it's registry. This program seems to find all my current video card drivers. It also downloads them and installs them quite fast. (The download speed depends upon how many updates and/or size of driver file.) The interface of this program is very easy to navigate, as it has four tabs.

    Cons

    Sometimes I wish I didn't have to renew my Driverboost license key once a year. I also wish I didn't have to pay to use it on more than one PC. On the other hand, I have to cut my losses. I have access to a support team that is available 24/7. So, I guess my con turns out to be a pro after all. :)

    Summary

    I also want to add that this software even knows when a USB device isn't plugged into my computer. I'm going to use it to try to fix my iPhone which right now my computer doesn't recognize. I've been able to use all my audio equipment and portable devices (i.e. phones and cameras) much easier after trying Driverboost. I like how it shows me my scan history and helps me use Windows System Restore.

    "DriverBoost worked great for me."

    June 04, 2013   |   By mgray07

    Version: DriverBoost 8.1.0.13

    Pros

    It was really easy to use, and it found which of my drivers needed updating quickly. I had been having a hard time getting my printer to work even though it was connected to my PC, and since I used DriverBoost it's working great (I didn't know I needed my printer driver was out of date). Another plus for me was that it was a quick fix. Before I've had to go to the website and update my drivers individually, and that took up a lot of time. With DriverBoost it does it for me, and I like that a lot.

    Cons

    So far, I haven't had any issues, so I don't think there are any cons.

    Summary

    Overall, I've had a really good experience with this product, and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't like to manually update their drivers. It's a really great product that can save you a lot of time.
