    "Really helps sorting out old drivers"

    February 11, 2013  |   By bkernst

    Pros

    Really easy to use and the interface does not require an expert to understand. The application also does restore points by default, but that can be disabled. There is a drivers backup feature provided as well.

    Cons

    Free version does not have full automatic updating, but that is not a major issue. The application window sometimes ends up on top of the installer window and then it is not always obvious that some button on the installer window has to be clicked.

    Summary

    Has not failed me yet and I have been using this application for more than one year. SlimDrivers helped me hunt down those drivers that were installed with the hardware and turned out to be six years old. The colour indicator really helped and now I know at least what specific drivers I actually have to use for the onboard devices. Restore points help, but I never yet had to actually restore a driver to a previous version.
