    "Excellent Driver update program!"

    April 4, 2014  |   By vtljp

    Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.32705.52095

    Pros

    I have been using it for a year now, updating my drivers every few months. It has worked flawlessly.

    Cons

    No one button for updating all drivers.
    I do wish it updated the drivers faster, may not be a Slim Drive issue.

    Summary

    Hey for a cost of $00.00 I don't know that it can be beaten for it's reliable functionality. Of course you can upgrade for $.

    "Works Well with minor caveat"

    April 4, 2014  |   By RedKondor

    Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.32705.52095

    Pros

    Program found 18 available updates from Intel which, it said, were available for my system. It installed quickly and efficiently and let me opt out of AVG and other non required add on items.

    Cons

    Even though program reported 18 available updates, once downloaded and I attempted to install, 16 of the 18 were not for my system at all.

    Summary

    Program is a useful tool but, be cautious. I would stick to the manual ( free ) version so that you see and decide on what actions take place. Automatic download and installation might cause the user some unpleasant surprises.

    "SlimDrivers works great"

    April 3, 2014  |   By ericfrankel

    Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.32705.52095

    Pros

    Once I got started, I was able to perform updates of all my drivers one at a time. In some cases, multiple updates came from one company and more than one was accomplished with a single click. I doubt that my drivers will change much in the future as the equipment is not the latest stuff. I may need to use this again if I update the operatiing system.

    Cons

    Needing to repeat the operation several times before I had updated everything.

    Summary

    I was glad to find this software and I was able to run it as I was doing other things on the computer.

    "AWESOME! Best Driver downloader/updater I've EVER found"

    March 31, 2014  |   By hdlcx2

    Version: SlimDrivers Free 2.2.32705.52095

    Pros

    Finds AND INSTALLS outdated drivers, new drivers, system drivers, all drivers.
    You have the option to choose.

    Cons

    NO CONS. It's an Open Source Program and I found it the only one that DID'NT BLOCK MS Updates.
    When MS Update gets bugged, then no other App or Program can access or install the updates.
    This is the ONLY Program or App that I've found that CAN do this. It also finds Drivers you wouldn't think of. Critical System Drivers that have been out of date for some time.
    ***When Downloading and or Installing ANY Updates:, Always remember to Turn OFF ANY Virus or Malware Applications you may have running. This includes Windows Update and any Browser Control Apps.
    As far as Cons go: The UI looks somewhat utilitarian and simple. Easy to use. Probably didn't cost MILLIONS of DOLLARS. But, IT WORKS!!!

    Summary

    Best Application or Program that I've found to seek out necessary Downloads with ease.
    It also finds and Installs Downloads that other Applications run into ERRORS with.
    A Very good FREE Open Source Application that WORKS like no other.
