    "Neat little program, very efficient at what it does"

    August 17, 2012  |   By rogermanawatu

    Pros

    I have been using the free version over the last two weeks, to update my Sony Vaio, and it has done a good job.
    Actually I thought it was up to date, but Slim found much more recent drivers and they have all been compatible and installed with no trouble. I haven't managed and double checked the process of installing the 27 drivers, but they are all working on this platform. I don't know how it does it but it works well

    Cons

    None, this is a good program
    I suppose it could have extras like file names and source of drivers, so one has a choice. It just has minimum information about what it finds, you just take it on faith i suppose. However it offers to do a system restore point at each stage, so any mistakes can be quickly rolled back.

    Summary

    quick and easy to install.
    Once it is going it does a comprehensive search. take the first one and download it, it will then automatically go into installation, which requires your permission and accepting licences etc.
    Finally it usually wants to reboot before proceeding with the next one. Graphic can be up to 200Mb, takes a while, others much smaller and are done in batches.
