Editors' Review

+

SlimDrivers scans for available updates for all of your drivers, and then manages the download and installation process for you. Rather than having to figure out which programs might be out of date and then checking for updates individually, you can use this program to significantly streamline the process and keep all programs running smoothly.

Pros

Quick scans: When you first open the app, you can quickly complete a scan with just the click of a button. The scan encompasses all drivers on your machine that could be out of date and identifies locations for available update downloads.

Intuitive interface: The controls for this program are straightforward, with a large button for initiating a scan. Once the scan is complete, you'll see a list of the programs with updates available, and you can opt to download that update straight through the app, or you can choose to ignore updates for certain programs. When you begin each download, you can also instruct the app to create a restore point, so that if anything goes wrong, you can recover your software intact up to that point.

Cons

Slow downloads: The downloads we attempted through this app took a very long time to complete, sometimes between five and ten minutes. There were also several instances in which they failed completely.

Self-promotion: This app features a lot of banner as well as pop-up ads promoting other programs by this developer or for their paid products, which offer automatic updates. The free program only makes it possible for you to download updates, manually.

Bottom Line

SlimDrivers is a good free option if you want a quick way to check for driver updates for various programs on your computer. It may be best to avoid downloading thorough the app, as that can be a bit of an arduous process, but getting the search results is a quick and straightforward process. Especially if you don't have a lot of drivers, it's worth checking out this app. It's possible that the paid programs this developer offers complete downloads more quickly, but unfortunately you'll have to pay to find out.

"Awesome way to update drivers!"

 |  Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.45206.63218

Pros

Scans your system and identifies updates for operating system, peripherals and application software!

Cons

The free version allows only one update at a time which could be cumbersome, but doable, if many drivers to update!

Summary

Well worth using to keep your 'puter humming well!

"Works Very Smoothly"

February 06, 2016  |  By sgoffred

2016-02-06 16:18:29  |  By sgoffred

 |  Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.45206.63218

Pros

The software easily identified outdated and (sometimes) missing drivers, and suggested appropriate updates. The drivers the program served up actually installed correctly, which is far superior to many of the junk-ware subscription programs. It's really easy to use, and seems to have a very thorough database of drivers. This was probably one of the best driver utility experiences I have encountered. I was even using this software with Windows XP!

Cons

The software missed a couple of missing drivers, requiring the use of alternate software to try to identify what was missing. It got most of the drivers, though.

Summary

This is a very, very impressive driver utility. You can't beat the price, either. Free.

"Absolutely outstanding, I would be lost without it."

 |  Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.45206.63218

Pros

All the tool's needed to accomplish anything your mind desires. Their ability to enable anyone to expand their mind at moment's notice

Cons

Their ability to hack into your computer and not only invade your privacy, but also their ability to call you on your personal cell phone and threaten you, that if you don, t buy their antivirus program right then and now, they will terminate your certificate, and you will no longer be able to use the computer that you paid for with your hard earned money for. I am a Terminal cancer patient with a few month's left. My last dyeing accomplishment was to draft a iI love you letter to each of my 6 children. But because I do not have the fund's due to all my medical bill's to buy their antivirus, I will not be able to.For a company that with all their wonderful products,and their opportunity to broaden one.s mind,and yet their ability to crush one's dyeing wish, well that make,s them heartless and not worth spending your money with..

Summary

I am at a loss for word's in regard's to their selfishness, and their heartless bullying..
