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.

"Best I've Found!!!!"

December 23, 2014  |  By BlueBoon56

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.47

Pros

Friendly and Easy to Use and that's a big plus. Free version is definitely worth it!!!!
Tells you which drivers need downloading. The ancient version did not. It does not install itself like malware and then refuse to leave!!! One driver program has and it infuriates me !!!!! Thank you!!!

Cons

Only lets you download 2 drivers per day unless you buy the Pro version but hey, it works well and it's free.

Summary

Give it a shot. It's definitely worth trying and seeing if it fits.

"I love it!"

December 19, 2014  |  By richard.burden.31

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.47

Pros

Fast and simple driver downloads
Updates everything without a hitch
Can be used on multiple computers to update them
Ask to create a restore point if any problems occur
I would recommend this to anyone

Cons

There are no cons that I am aware of with this program except that you only get 2 downloads a day with the free version. Which really isn't a con because its free to update over a period of time.

Summary

I am only using the trial version. I could not be any happier with the results of the drivers that were updated through Driver Max. Everything updated without a problem and more people should know about Driver Max!

"Impressive Program"

December 13, 2014  |  By DoctorOFDoom

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.45

Pros

This program mapped out all the drivers I was missing and provided me a means to not only install them but to provide a "Restore Point"......this was comfortable.
The downloads then installs were smooth, quick and reliable.
Despite the fears a computer tech was giving me, everything went swimmingly great. I am so very glad I updated all my drivers. now my computer (a 4 year old HP HDX 18T) runs even nicer !

Cons

Only one I can see is the limit of 2 downloads per day... but then... that gives me time to assess how the already downloaded drivers are performing before I install any newer ones.

Summary

Really recommend this program to anyone who is looking to improve their computer performance with new drivers !

"Drivermax is effective and accurate, it works just fine"

December 12, 2014  |  By Ndijas

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.45

Pros

The one which i think is most important is that each and every data used to update each driver is never a waste because immediately after it downloading it gives u an option to install. All the drivers that were updated were 1st suitable and do the job. all my outdated drivers were listed.

Cons

the only issue with the the free version is that, i could not download more than two drivers a day. In most days it only allowed me to update only one. It does not show how much data each update is, or maybe i just could not see as much as i tried to know before downloading

Summary

the free version is a lot better than most free driver tuners, as far as im concerned.

Updated on Dec 12, 2014

it has to be the best free version driver updater, because it delivers all the time. it is just awesome...

Updated on Dec 12, 2014

DriverMax is for all of those that really need help and have the patience to actually enjoy the privilege of updating your drivers for free. in short it is an answer to all computer driver problems.

"Works Brilliantly, Very impressive"

November 14, 2014  |  By Pmac2k

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.44

Pros

It works nearly every time and for those times it doesn't choose the right driver the roll back procedure is faultless

Cons

Sometimes large driver files take a long time to download

Summary

I love this application I have used it on and off for sometime - there are occasional hiccups with the drivers it downloads but when it does pick something wrong it takes the feedback and doesn't seem to offer it again. Can't ask for more than that really!
