Editors' Review

+

Behind a slick interface, this program backs up all your PC's drivers in case you mess up something fierce. From registration to implementation, DriverMax works fast, runs smooth, and does even more than mere backing up.

When you run the app, it asks you if you'd like to run the trial version or apply for a registration key. The key is free, though, requiring only an e-mail address and your name. Once you've entered the key, the program interface appears, with slick button navigation: Driver Operations, Updates and Identification, and Popular Hardware. Mousing over one reveals more choices, so you can export your drivers, import drivers, or view an installed drivers report.

Updates lets you update both the DriverMax software and the drivers themselves, although as of this writing there is a warning label on the DriverMax Web site that downloads are not currently functioning. The program can also identify unknown hardware and point you in the direction of popular hardware options, pointing users to a compilation of statistics about different video cards and processors.

The strongest features, though, relate to driver backup and reinstalls. They function smoothly, offering users the option to back up all drivers or compile a customized list. Reinstalling an "accidentally" deleted driver was as pain-free as could be. As of the version 4 update, the DriverMax Agent, which automatically scans for driver updates, only works in Windows Vista 43-bit. Nevertheless, this is a great utility tool that should appeal to newbies, advanced hackers, and everybody in between.

"Most Reliable Driver Updation Tool"

October 22, 2014  |  By original crab

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.43

Pros

no other tool in market allows trust and updating 2 drivers per day for free.
almost all driver updation tools wants them to pay after scanning.
DriverMax am using for 6years thru various pc's ,n it stayed on as favourable n customer friendly for almost 6years now than many 1 year wonders that comes n go down in market.
it also made sure after gaining popularity not to put it as bundleware n carried on with the principle n its a brand now.
very simple but proper interface as I should put it comes with a direction to computer makers what are current trends of hardware to assemble.
I don't have that much money to roll out 35$ on a day flat out to buy a software,but DriverMax provides the opportunity for less fortunate people like us to update 2 drivers per day for free.10days 20drivers.

Cons

none from my part

Summary

brilliant tool for driver updates with good marketing mantra.

"Good stuff, does what it says and simple to use, Kudos!"

October 18, 2014  |  By Alonznet

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.43

Pros

easy to use and always works great.

Cons

only 2 downloads a day dispite the fact that on the upgrade to pro page it says unlimited daily downloads for both free and pro (a blue check mark in both collums), that typo needs to be fixed its missleading ;). example: http://www.drivermax.com/driver/buypro.php?drivermax_version=7.43&sit=0&promotion=DRIVER-INSTALLER

Summary

so fix your missleading info and increase daily downloads for free users to a few more per day and id give this 5 stars, but as is only getting 3.

"Helped a lot, worth the price"

October 18, 2014

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.43

Pros

Updated 16 drivers in no time. Easy to use.

Cons

Caused one driver to stop, but it was easily fixed.

Summary

I was getting a lot of BSoDs in Windows 7. Some were due to old drivers in my 2 year old machine. DriverMax took care of it easily after I reloaded Windows. Buy the Pro upgrade to save a lot of time.

"Great product, works perfect"

October 18, 2014  |  By coenepat

 |  Version: DriverMax 7.43

Pros

Drivermax finds a lot more updates than other software. I bought Driver Booster just before i found this program and DriverMax found 10 more updates. Even in the free version it's a god product, you only need a bit more time because of the download limit of 2 downloads a day.

Cons

Found no cons so far. Ok, there is a max downloadlimit of 2 a day but hey ... it's free.

Summary

Great product, eayse to use, works perfect.
