3DP Chip Reviews

Driver Easy, Device Doctor and 3DP Chip

Review by em4020
about 3DP Chip and Driver Easy, Device Doctor Jun 2011

Driver Easy found more drivers, Device Doctor is also commercial free, both without limitation & registration
3DP Chip portable does not update drivers, as Device Doctor or Driver Easy do. The Driver Update button of 3DP Chip leads to a Japanese internet-site, which I cannot read.
I clearly prefer Device Doctor (1) and Driver Easy to 3DP Chip, because 3DP Chip does not work.
I use the portable Device Doctor instead of Driver Easy (2) for commercial use, because Device Doctor is totally free, also for commercial or educational use,
Driver Easy is not portable and only free for private use, but found also drivers, which Device Doctor did not find.
I have tested Device Doctor, as I set up a new Notebook, where the driver CD was not OK. Device Doctor found and downloaded all drivers and the best available drivers in a very short time.
So these very useful applications can save very much time, if you are looking for drivers, even if there are some "Unknown Devices" in the device manager.
As I installed Drivers for Windows 7 on a 8 years old notebook, Device Doctor found only 50% of the needed drivers, where Driver Easy found all necessary drivers.
A little disadvantage, which I have seen, is, that Device Doctor reports some recently installed drivers to be renewed, although they have been renewed just before.
