Pros

None that i'm aware of.

Cons

It reconized my opreating system as xp pro and i'm running vista home pro 32bit. All the updates were programs that windows should update on windows update anyway... It tried to update programs that i have already deleted..

Summary

Not a good match for my pc... Sorry!

"I have spent hours undoing the damage it has done."

December 14, 2010  |  By GrahamDX

 |  Version: DriverScanner 2010

Pros

Nil. There is nothing good to say about this product.

Cons

Between my technician and myself we have spent hours correcting the damage. Do not buy this product unless you are prepared to spend a lot of time and dollars undoing the damage it does. I have deleted Uniblue off my system.

Summary

A waste of time and dollars.

"a useless waste of valuable user time"

December 02, 2010  |  By mommiecat

 |  Version: DriverScanner 2010

Pros

nothing positive to say about this one...

Cons

Couldn't even update its own software without failures - two out-of-date drivers on my pc were in fact the best for my pc. No wonder only 25,000 downloads to date. Removing this product pronto as "Free" should not equate to "Desperately Inadequate".

Summary

Don't bother - wait for something better to come along, and in the meantime, make sure you are using other driver update options...a simple review of your Device Manager in your Control Panel will allow you to search for updates if you are having problems, and is certainly much easier than the rigamarole which DriverScanner expects you to go through. In the free version, you have to do locate updates yourself anyway...

"This software is very poor"

July 23, 2010  |  By petekeiser

 |  Version: DriverScanner 2010

Pros

I don't havce any

Cons

I have constantly been following to the letter the way to download this software but to no avail. I have contacted the company numerous times and haven't gotten one reply.

Summary

This has been a pain in the *#@&*Since I purchased this software right from the start it never worked. I guess it does download but it will not run. I have followed the downloading instrtuctions to the "T" With the uninstall ect. Nothing works. I have been trying to get a responce from Uniblue for some help but obviously they can't be bothered. I am very disappointed

"Easy to use - for PC user with moderate knowledge level"

May 10, 2010  |  By peony99

 |  Version: DriverScanner 2010

Pros

This product is very easy to use, is fast and (for the software that it scans) it seems to be accurate.

Cons

I am currently comparing it vs another driver program. Driver Scanner is much faster and much easier to use but it does not seem to scan anywhere near the amount of software that my other, much more difficult-to-use package does.

Summary

Driver Scanner's ease of use is for me it's most important feature, as well as its accuracy. However I do question the extent of it's library of software that it scans. My second driver program seems to have a more extensive cache of apps/programs that it scans but that never appear with Driver Scanner. This second driver program however is quite complicated for me to use so it generally sits unused - until it expires - and I accept that it will continue to tell me that I have some software with outdated drivers.

"seems solid enough, but believe it could be better"

May 08, 2010  |  By Loupele

 |  Version: DriverScanner 2010

Pros

clear understandable interface and logically tabbed for ease of use

Cons

bit of an ad appendage. two other programs Registry Booster and SpeedUpMyPC can also be yours for a price per piece and you'll be reminded of that fact.

Summary

Am currently waiting to see if there will be a reslove to a couple of driver updates that didn't work for some reason. Could be this is a decent program but might have been better sold as compilation product including the 3 products in one instead of the piece meal approach.
