    "Easy to install, use, recommend"

    March 7, 2011  |   By birdofparadise2

    Version: DriverMax 5.7

    Pros

    Quickly identified out of date drivers, listed them, gave me options about what to do. Effortlessly downloaded new drivers. Secure knowing up to date. Help information excellent!

    Cons

    None so far, only used it for a day and on the free system can download and install 2 drivers per day!

    Summary

    Well worth installing for peace of mind optimal running.

    "Free version does what it's supposed to"

    March 6, 2011  |   By golfgirl8350

    Version: DriverMax 5.7

    Pros

    Straightforward, good instructions, usually finds the most current driver download

    Cons

    >Not all downloads are successful.
    >Program asks immediately if there were problems but there isn't a -way to know
    >After install, It's not simple to go back and re-run the check for driver updates to see if your installs show up as the most current

    Summary

    DriverMax helped me update 90% of my drivers. I tried another free upload program (Drivers For Free) and it was only moderately successful, showing several outdated drivers as up to date, and installation was difficult to complete. DriverMax is far superior, even when you can only upload two drivers a day for free.

    "Beyond any expectations!!!"

    March 5, 2011  |   By Will_Hoffmann

    Version: DriverMax 5.7

    Pros

    This program found all my drivers including windows was having a hard time to identify. Solved all my drivers problems with a few clicks.
    You can backup all your drivers

    Cons

    None at all

    Summary

    Another pro is that the PRO version allows you to use it on ANY number of computer so you can even split split the price - with is only U$ 39.00 for 2 years - less than $ 2.00 a month.
    And you can save a lot of time and money - I was going to buy a new router cause the connection wall crashing all the time but all I needed was to update my drivers.

    Version: DriverMax 5.7

    Pros

    Lets you save a backup of your drivers

    Cons

    Would not go to download site

    Summary

    The best thing I could see is that you can backup your drivers but that is all I could get the program to do and it did not solve my problems

    "Not worth your time.."

    March 3, 2011  |   By mypurpleplace

    Version: DriverMax 5.7

    Pros

    If you run the FREE version you can go into your Device Manager and update the drivers yourself since DriverMax will show you which drivers need updated.

    Cons

    I bought the Pro version & updated all my drivers. Or so I thought. I keep getting some drivers that will not accept the update. There is NO phone to call this company & they do NOT answer emails. Money back guarantee? Don't think so.

    Summary

    Cons...Drivers I updated keep saying they are out of date. If I go through my device manager it says the driver is already updated. SO I keep getting conflicted suggestions. Also DriverMax will say one version is needed to update. After I update a driver that version it will jump to another update version. SO then you switch & it goes back & forth non-stop. I emailed company to get my money back. It slowed down my system & totally messed it up. I am having to do a total restore! Still waiting to hear back form the company. No phone to call. SKIP THIS ONE!!!!

    "Easy to use: you ever will find the newest drivers"

    March 2, 2011  |   By Ernestorw

    Version: DriverMax 5.7

    Pros

    It is very easy to renew drivers.

    Cons

    In the free edition you can only download two drivers a day which is boring when you reinstalled hardware.
    Boring, too is the advertising.

    Summary

    Reliable renewal of all drivers so I would recomment DriverMax
