This tool tried to install an older version of a driver. Didn't find a download limitation, like my previous favourite Drivermax. Hope they keep up this good work. For automatic driver updates (all at once), you can upgrade to premium, but it isn't necessary.

For me was the only that realy works, lists only the drivers that need update. Don't list unecessary updates or wrong drivers (I've tested on 3 diferent computers).

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After "optimizing" all drivers with SlimDrivers DriverEasy reported 2 missing and 23 outdated drivers.

DriverEasy reported 2 missing and 23 outdated drivers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.

Used to be good, but I found some of the downloaded drivers to contain trojan viruses. Not worth the risk.

It used to work reasonably well. About 50% of the drivers it found were either older than the currently installed ones or for different hardware entirely. However.... They have now changed the format/layout of the app and it is extremely difficult to get hold of the download links for free. As about half of the downloads are wrong/not needed/outdated this makes the process extremely time consuming and infuriating. I used to advise everyone to use this program as it was the only free one that worked (half the time). Now I'd advise everyone to avoid like the plague. Very disappointed in the company.

I have tried a ton of programs for opdating drivers, and this one is fine, but not great. I prefer using IObit Driver Booster, it is much better at detecting drivers in need of an update.

With IOBit Driver Booster I have much more frequently updated drivers in comparison with this one. Negative opinion.
