"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It does a decent job of identifying outdated drivers.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The outdated drivers may not need to be updated.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

"Does not give correct driver update information."

September 12, 2011  |  By tanulike

 |  Version: DriverEasy 3.10.1.16903

Pros

None that I can think of.

Cons

Frustratingly identifies drivers that DO NOT require updating and when I have installed them has caused me a lot of hassle to rectify the problems created in doing so.

Summary

Just use your DEVICE MANAGER installed on your PC as and when you want to check if there are any driver updates available.

"Excellent software that performs a very important task."

August 04, 2011  |  By GazWig

 |  Version: DriverEasy 3.10.0.26694

Pros

Driver Easy is exactly what it says it is - an easy way to monitor and update your drivers.

Cons

None that I am aware of.

Summary

Any self-respecting and diligent computer user should be aware of the importance of keeping drivers up to date. This utility facilitates the task of first finding the appropriate drivers, and then installing them. Once installed, you can forget about checking your drivers regularly, as the task is fully automated.

"cake and pie"

July 20, 2011  |  By ailurophile1

 |  Version: DriverEasy 3.9.2.20914

Pros

Finds lots of drivers to be updated. Automatic installation is great. Can't install en masse with the free version, however.

Cons

Some drivers require manual install, with no instructions on how to do that. Also, a pop-up asks if the driver was installed properly (before the installation's even been started). How should I know?

Summary

Pluses outweigh minuses; not user-friendly if you're not very very familiar with your OS.
