    "Watch out!"

    March 31, 2014  |   By beefreedman

    Version: DriverMax 7.29

    Pros

    Can't think of any

    Cons

    Downloads wrong things!

    Summary

    The first two drivers I downloaded from a list of 21 that it found each made a mess. The first one was for the USB 3.0 port--maybe it would have been OK for just 3.0 devices but my wireless mouse dongle was there (no doubt a 2.0 device)and the mouse stopped working--had to use System Restore to undo the change. Then I downloaded the new driver for my video chip (Radeon). It turned my screen into a mess of wrong resolution, wrong colors, and screwed-up scrolling. System Restore to the rescue again. Then I just let Windows Device Manager look for a newer driver for the video chip and it found it, installed it, and everything is OK. Bottom line: USE SOMETHING ELSE, NOT THIS UTILITY!! And: always make a Restore Point before installing ANY new driver.

    "Good if used very sparingly!"

    March 30, 2014  |   By Sue Geek

    Version: DriverMax 7.29

    Pros

    Helps with some driver problems.

    Cons

    Some driver updates can cause more harm than good.

    Summary

    I got DriverMax for 2 reasons: 1. I didn't want to pay for an expensive license for driver update software that may not work all or even most of the time and that I would only need to use once or twice to deal with specific drivers that were giving me blue screens. 2. besides being freeware, I also had the added resource of checking other user comments on the successes or failures of driver updates and I can also add my own input.

    My results with this program were VERY mixed! I did solve the problem I was having with my old biometrics driver and helped stop the blue screens caused by the old driver. However, most - if not all - of the other drivers I attempted to update were a disaster and had to be undone.

    "The product has improved and is now pretty reliable."

    Version: DriverMax 7.28

    Pros

    The accuracy of its system analysis and variety of its offerings is fairly impressive.

    Cons

    It's difficult to think of any drawbacks that DriverMax may have; that one I'd leave to the software engineers.

    Summary

    This is a safe and reliable product. I'd recommend it to a friend.
