    "PLEASE PLEASE PEOPLE THIS IS JUNK"

    January 7, 2009  |   By aaronsdadmt

    Version: DriverMax 4.7

    Pros

    NOT A ONE.......Don't always believe what you read, this is simply the worst excuse for software I've ever seen

    Cons

    Your pc doesn't need anymore crap installed on it, all your doing is giving them permission to bombard you with junk ads and spam galore, do yourself a favor & skip this one

    "What every driver hater is looking for!"

    January 6, 2009  |   By Highsight

    Version: DriverMax 4.7

    Pros

    Identifies unknown hardware.
    FREE!!!!
    Finds latest versions.
    Downloads quickly.
    Installs without need for user guidance.
    Your choice of driver version to download and install.

    Cons

    Having to go through their site is a bit of a hassle, it would be nice if it was all streamlined within the program.
    No 64bit support (yet!)
    You need to make an account.

    Summary

    This program is a must have for anyone who hates searching everywhere for that one driver they need. It is quick, easy, user friendly, and best off all FREE. Keep it up guys, this app has the potential to be a household name.

    "Waste of time, links you to scammeras and advertizers"

    January 2, 2009  |   By artman10299

    Version: DriverMax 4.7

    Pros

    Appears to find drivers and updates

    Cons

    When you try to update, they link you to scammer websites.

    Summary

    I don't trust any software maker that has connections or links to scam websites.
    Then you can't back out of their webpage.

    "Easy to use. Best driver program - including my PCs mfg"

    January 2, 2009  |   By o_daniels

    Version: DriverMax 4.7

    Pros

    I've a Dell PC. I've used Dell's driver program & another that's not free. The right path to take isn't as clear as what is presented by DM. I'll not be surprised if I get a bad driver with DM. But, I'm sure my success rate will be much, much higher.

    Cons

    Can only select one driver at a time. This is really more of a wish list being reported as a con. The program is not as intuitive as I think it could be - you must scan the help. Oh well...

    Summary

    Working with Dell's driver update service is much more difficult as far as determining if a given driver is for the hardware actually on your system. DriverMax, on the other hand, identifies the hardware and related drivers on your system and then recommends specific driver updates based on the information collected. Ditto for DriverAgent - plus it's not free.

    Now, can one still run into problems? Definitely! But, isn't that the nature of driver updates, where driver manufacturing is not always subject to the quality control that we expect..

    I'm no expert on this driver stuff. I just know correct updates came make a huge difference between hardware working appropriately or not; and having peak system performance or not. In that regard, I'm impressed by the ease with which DriverMax has enabled me to quickly and successfully install drivers - bringing my system completely up-to-date.

    And it is free...! What a deal!

    "" IT'S COME A LONG WAY" !!"

    December 21, 2008  |   By mark bevan

    Version: DriverMax 4.7

    Pros

    Obviously, i love the fact it's free and it works!! Once you find your feet it's pretty straight forward to use.

    Cons

    As J.Wayne mentioned, do be careful, you might find some of the drivers are not compatible with your computer.

    Summary

    DriverMax has come a long way since last year. I did have it installed in the past but it failed to download many of the drivers, so i dumped it. Now, with this latest version, i thought "what the heck" I'll give it a try. Well, to be honest i wasn't disappointed. It takes a little while to scan your system but well worth the wait. In total i had 12 drivers which needed updating. All but one were quickly downloaded and installed. BUT, create a system restore point before you start and DO NOT download and install in bulk. What i did was one by one, this way you have better control over what your doing, and if one driver isn't compatible you know which one it was. Out of 12 drivers 1 wasn't compatible. Did an online check and it was for Vista system, I'm running XP, that's the only problem i had. All in all a great piece of software but use with care, and take notes of the non compatible drivers for future reference.

    "Excellent driver finder"

    December 16, 2008  |   By Barbaraannteacake

    Version: DriverMax 4.7

    Pros

    Its easy to use and as I am not a computer buff it saved my bacon. I got the graphic driver I was needing and also updated my other drivers. It also tells you the % rate of compatibility.

    Cons

    I have found nothing so far to dislike, its a no nonsense software.

    "An excellent Driver finder."

    November 29, 2008  |   By J.Wayne

    Version: DriverMax 4.7

    Pros

    Updated many of my drivers and found drivers for SD Card Reader that was not available on Driver Disks.

    Cons

    May provide drivers that are not completely compatible.

    Summary

    Great at finding and updating drivers. But it may provide a driver that is not completely compatible with the current setup. So be sure to check the operation after installing so it can be backed out if necessary.
