Editors' Review

3DP Chip is an app designed to help you in the event that you ever need to reinstall all of the drivers to your computer. The app quickly scans your machine and provides a readout of your exact hardware, so that you can get the drivers needed to get your system up and running. This is a useful utility for anyone having hardware difficulties on a Windows machine.

Pros

Effective and quick: From the minute the app fires up, it only takes a minute to display the information that it is designed to provide. The readouts we tested were universally accurate.

Clipboard copy feature: You can easily copy all of your machine's hardware specs to your clipboard. This is useful for posting to forums or sharing the information with an IT professional if you need help working on your computer.

Cons

Difficult to read: The program prints the information on the screen in very small text in a difficult to read font. It was extremely difficult to read the information.

Confusing interface: The interface has several buttons which are completely unmarked. There are no hover explanations or any indication as to what any of these buttons may do. You just have to test them through trial and error to figure out how the program works.

Installation issues: The program tries to force a default installation on you that includes defaulting your search to a specific search engine.

Bottom Line

If you need an app to tell you what hardware you're running and to help you install the correct drivers for your system, this will get the job done. However, it is a confusing and dated-looking app that is difficult to use easily. Overall, there are other ways to get the same information from better programs.
