Editors' Review

Your computer system's drivers tell your hardware and software what to do. Without up-to-date drivers, your system won't perform to its full potential and might even experience problems. Obsolete drivers can sometimes even leave vulnerabilities and security holes that have been fixed in updates that you don't have, and why? Because updating drivers is a nuisance falling somewhere between an oil change and a dentist's appointment, that's why; and it's worse still if you're the sort of user who depends on a PC yet has no earthly idea what goes on inside the box (and like it that way, thank you very much). So, get DriverMax from Innovative Solutions. This free cloud-based tool helps you download and install up-to-date drivers practically painlessly. You'll need to create a free user account to make DriverMax work.

DriverMax scanned our PC during setup and displayed our drivers in a compact view, with up-to-date drivers marked in green and those with available updates in red. The scan found eight available updates. We simply had to click Download to get the drivers, select More Options to view an information box with links to other drivers and options, or click a Help icon to access related information. The drivers all come from a variety of sites and often download and install in different ways, too, so the ability to view other available drivers and documentation can make a big difference.

When you download a driver in the free version of DriverMax, a Web page opens with information and a download link. The Pro upgrade downloads drivers directly within the DriverMax interface, but we don't have a problem with an intermediate step since "slow, steady, and careful" (and plenty of info) add up to trouble-free upgrades and smooth sailing from then on. Of course, you can also use DriverMax as a guide for updating drivers individually using their own programs (where available). DriverMax also backs up and restores your drivers (backup = good). DriverMax proved superior to similar driver maintenance tools we've tried, with a quality look and feel; we recommend it for users of all skill levels.

    "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.
