    "pretty good"

    June 18, 2014  |   By escoboly55

    Version: DriverMax 7.32

    Pros

    It locates how many driver's and then install's them. It let's you pick which one's to install and to back up the old one's incase the new driver does not work. And you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the program.

    Cons

    It find's a driver, but sometime's not the right one for that device.

    Summary

    Overall it's a good driver installer, easy to use and not bad for the price.

    "Ok if you're careful"

    June 18, 2014  |   By jhs39

    Version: DriverMax 7.32

    Pros

    This makes it easy to find drivers that can be updated.

    Cons

    Sometimes those drivers are not compatible with your computer. DriverMax does a poor job of detecting when a driver is not functioning correctly after instillation.

    Summary

    Like all driver update software the user should exercise extreme caution when using this product. Never update more than one driver at a time. Never update a driver without doing a back-up first. I would think twice before updating any drivers relating to your keyboard and mouse--both of mine were knocked out by a DriverMax driver update and it's pretty hard to undo a driver update when you have no keyboard or mouse.

    Functional interface has what you need when you need it......you just click next......and you can even take a nap - sure that things will be ok when you wake up!

    "Backup de drivers ou para mante-los sempre atualizado:)"

    June 9, 2014  |   By Lidney

    Version: DriverMax 7.32

    Pros

    A vantagem com o Driver Max e' a de sempre manter os drivers mais atualizados disponiveis no sistema. Basta clicar na opcao Check for Driver Update para o programa buscar por novas versoes e indicar o download do driver.

    Cons

    O porem desse recurso e' que voce devera se cadastrar no forum. O registro e' gratuito e o e-mail com o envio da chave estara em sua caixa de entrada rapidamente. Quando receber a mensagem, voce devera reiniciar o programa e inserir o serial fornecido.

    Summary

    Roda em XP/Vista/7/8/8.1
    DriverMax e' um programa com duas finalidades principais que sao muito uteis: importar e exportar drivers controladores de hardware de seu computador. Logo em sua instalacao, o DriverMax pesquisara por todos os drivers presentes no seu computador. O processo dura por cerca de 5 minutos, e voce so' podera utilizar o programa corretamente depois de finalizado.

    A lista de drivers para a exportacao e' simplesmente enorme e abrange todos os hardwares do computador: processador, placa mae, controlador USB e placa de video sao apenas alguns exemplos entre os disponeveis. O tempo levado para serem exportados depende da quantidade de drivers selecionados. Caso voce escolha todos, levara cerca de 30 'a 45 minutos ate' o processo ser terminado.

    Pode parecer muito, mas comparando com o tempo que voce leva na instalacao, ou na procura por drivers na Internet, este processo e' bem rapido. Voce podera' guardar os drivers num CD ou pendrive para importa-los quando tiver que formatar o computador, por exemplo. Todos eles serao salvos em um arquivo ZIP e a importacao nao leva muito tempo.

    "Don't Trust Drivermax Anymore."

    June 1, 2014  |   By BehrendsTech

    Version: DriverMax 7.32

    Pros

    It worked for awhile without long lines.

    Cons

    I can go on forever.
    -Requires an account to download anything.
    -They have new "Generic" drivers they want you to install that don't work good at all.
    -After installs even if you close the program they run a subprogram in the background so they can ask you if the drivers work ok.
    -They have LONG que lines as they keep adding more and more restrictions for non paying members so more people will pay.
    -They have been off on hardware detections recently.
    -No matter what machine they think logitech hardware is microsoft keyboard/software hardware and wants you to install items not even related.

    Summary

    Updated on Jun 1, 2014

    Update:
    -The settings reset everytime you "upgrade" the program which makes it boot on windows start. Not a big con but in 2014 not saving settings is 1990.
