Editors' Review

DriverMax Free Edition 7.29 scans, identifies, and updates your PC's hardware drivers automatically, one by one. It also backs up and restores drivers, keeps track of downloaded drivers, and identifies hardware without drivers. The freeware is limited to two driver downloads per day, at lower priority, and has other limitations compared to the Pro Edition.

Pros

Driver tune-up: A tune-up keeps your car running smoothly and reliably; updating your drivers does much the same for your PC. If updating drivers seems intimidating, DriverMax can take away some of the mystery.

Driver Ed: The freeware is fully functional, so the two-a-day limit is only an issue when you're updating drivers in batches. Nothing is stopping you from updating drivers the usual way (using the Device Manager), either.

Backup and restore: DriverMax can back up and restore your drivers, and it asks to create a Restore Point before installing new drivers.

Cons

Account required: You must create an online account to use DriverMax's Web-based tools. It's free, fairly unobtrusive, and relatively painless. But some users might care, so we're mentioning it.

Speed limits: Pro users have priority over free accounts in driver downloads. But a one-at-a-time, take-your-time approach to updating drivers usually means fewer crashes, conflicts, and blue screen errors.

Bottom Line

The free version of DriverMax has some limits compared to the Pro edition, but once you've updated all your drivers and set DriverMax on daily watch for new updates, you're unlikely to need to install more than two drivers at a time. For us, the most important thing is to know when updates are available, and DriverMax Free Edition does the job nicely.

"Great driver updater"

January 29, 2015  |  By kelitadee

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.49

Pros

drivers are listed for downloading and then installing. It's easy!

Cons

On the free version you only can download and install two a day, but hey, it's free and works wonderfully!

Summary

I would recommend this to anyone who is not computer savvy or has dealt with the ire of installing system drivers on thier own. Great product I love it.

"It's limited"

January 20, 2015

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.48

Pros

Well, it's free. Free to scan my pc and only 2 drivers are allowed to download. This is ...strange.

Cons

It costs money to update to the newest drivers.

Summary

I'd rather choose other free driver update tools, such as DriveTheLife, Driver Booster. The drives updates and downloads are totally free.

"I use Windows 8.1 The downloads worked very well."

January 17, 2015  |  By srinivas.gollapudi.35

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.48

Pros

It is the only free version that I found for updating drivers. I have Toshiba Satellite L55-B5276, which is only a few months old. The wireless was disconnecting every few minutes. I checked for driver updates on device manager, and it said all my drivers are upto date. But DriverMax found 12 my drivers needed to be updated. With Lan driver update from DriverMax, the laptop does not get disconnected anymore.

Cons

While downloading DriverMax, they were other software were downloaded as well and Norton blocked some stating dangerous sites. Other than that no cons.

Summary

I would recommend DriverMax to anyone who needs to up date their drivers. The driver updates made a big difference in the performance of my LAPTOP.

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.48

Pros

It finds all the driver updates that I need. Saves me a lot of time. Do use another but this one finds more of the drivers.

No problems with the software. It is easy to use. Just one niggle with a update that knocked PC out, but that was easily sorted out. But otherwise GOOD.

I would recommend DriverMax to anyone who needs to up date their drivers, If they have not done so. It does make a difference to how PC works. IT IS GREAT BIT OF SOFTWARE.
