DriverEasy detected more drivers than SlimDrivers. So I prefer DriverEasy about SlimDrivers. After Slimdrivers had updated all drivers on Vista Business 64bit und reported all drivers to be actual and OK, there remained an "Other USB-device" not working and yellow-marked:

"Other USB-device" not working

After "optimizing" all drivers with SlimDrivers DriverEasy reported 2 missing and 23 outdated drivers.

DriverEasy reported 2 missing and 23 outdated drivers

"Hauppauge WinTV HVR-900H 64bit (66xxx)" did not work

My Hauppauge WinTV USB Card "Hauppauge WinTV HVR-900H 64bit (66xxx)" did not work with the drivers from SlimDrivers, because the drivers for this USB 3.0-Card could not be installed:

  • Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller
  • Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Root Hub

Only with the DriverEasy-Updates I could use the "Hauppauge WinTV HVR-900H 64bit (66xxx)" which has the drivers Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Card as a precondition.

Otherwise DriverEasy wanted to install the V7-drivers for "Hauppauge WinTV HVR-900H 64bit (66xxx)"-USB-device, without asking. I wanted to keep the V6-version, because VTPlus does not work with WinTV V7. In this point SlimDrivers had the better behaviour.

Of all the various driver update utilities, DriverEasy seems to be the best. Unfortunately the bar is pretty low for this type of program, and DriverEasy isn't perfect.

DriverEasy seems to have the best driver detection with lowest false positives (though there are a few), it doesn't run in the background for no reason, and lets you see a comparison of your driver to the new driver to verify it is correct.

The free version of DriverEasy provides really, really, really slow downloads. Thankfully, the larger drivers tend to be easily available online (Intel, Realtek, etc). It is generally more obscure drivers like storage controller drivers that you can download through DriverEasy because they're only a few megabytes.

DriverEasy free is more of a driver detection tool than an automatic updater. But it's fairly good at what it does.

There is no actual list of drivers or sites from which this program downloads. This makes it very difficult to trust. Then there is the speed, the very slow speed that the FREE users have to deal with. But no worries, you are spammed to upgrade to the pro version at every turn, even opens an unwanted web page after installation (of the program, not the driver, because it does not install the drivers for you). And the most annoying thing is, in the FREE version, you have to manually install every driver, yes, only the paid version does in automatically. It may have potential, for it's simplicity and list of drivers (maybe?), but all the rest make it hard to trust. To bad it comes recommended from DDU.

Very annoying to go through, keeps telling me to get the paid version everywhere I go. Decided to just uninstall it instead

GARBAGE!!!

This is nothing but a tease to get you to pay for what you can get for free elsewhere!

The "Free" version is deliberately crippled and useless!

Save yourself the trouble!
