DriverMax Comments

Forces registration for driver downloading

Just saying.


Very reliable

Positive Comment by bopperjr346
about DriverMax Mar 2014

So far this has been the most reliable driver updating program that I have used. The only feature that would be great to have is a portable version that works offline so that it can be used on multiple systems without having to re-download the same content over again.

It suggests officially not existing newer version of intel video driver.

Btw driver backup and restore features are available without registration. Any download options require (free) email registration.

Driver Max will require you to share the drivers on your system with the 'community' that is upload them to their servers.

To sum up the comments on the website referenced by BosseWeb (Btw these comments date back to 2008.):

* Users reported that Driver Max would install drivers for the wrong Windows version (e.g. Vista drivers on XP)
* After installing drivers the PC would become unstable or slow
* One user claimed that he received a phishing email after registering his email on the Driver Max homepage

Comment by BobbyIII
about DriverMax Jun 2011

I don't know how well it works, but one thing I can tell for sure is that the free version is really annoying: you need to create an account, you get nag screens all over the place, as "duri" said limited to 2 drivers per day and the interface is just totally counter intuitive. That's not called free software but "nag" software.

I can definitely not recommend it for anyone unless you buy the pro version.

Great piece of software! Probably still the best one in the market when comes to updating drivers.

There's one catch though. Now it has a limitation to 2 driver downloads per day. It's bit irritating.

I like this! Better interface then RadarSync and feels a bit better. The only complaint was that you had to register to get a code. But it was worth it.
