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 Rather than having to figure out which programs might be out of date and then checking for updates individually, you can use this program to significantly streamline the process and keep all programs running smoothly.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 The scan encompasses all drivers on your machine that could be out of date and identifies locations for available update downloads.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.
