Device Doctor Editor's Review

Keeping the drivers of hardware components used in your PC is really important. Obsolete device drivers lead to a myriad of problems affecting PC performance. While advanced users may check for outdated drivers personally, this may not be an option for others. You may resort to using an app that can find out outdated device drivers and download updates too. If you want a user friendly app for such tasks, try Device Doctor.

Device Doctor can be used for free. It supports PCs with Windows XP and later versions. The installation is simple and gets over soon. It is very light on system resources. The app supports both 64 and 32 bit systems.

The app has a minimal and clean UI which makes things easy for beginners. You can use it to scan the computer for drivers that are outdated. Upon scan completion it will display a list of such outdated drivers. You can choose to update those drivers. The app will download the updates for selected drivers and apply them as well.

The app can work offline and saves scan results. It can update Microsoft certified WHQL drivers and those that lack this certification. You can also schedule driver scan at your suitable interval. It can be on daily or weekly basis. The app performs really well but misses out on a key functionality. Before updating drivers it does not create a system restore point. There is no option to automate back up of existing drivers as well. This is where Device Doctor gets outshined by rival apps.

Positive Points:
•    Minimal, clean UI.
•    Comprehensive driver updating.
•    Scan scheduler.

Negative Points:
•    No restore point creation.
•    No automated driver backup.

Conclusion:
Device Doctor is a free and easy to use device driver updating utility aimed at casual users. It makes searching for obsolete hardware drivers a simple process. You can use it on both 32 and 64 bit systems. The app can also be set to check for driver updates at an interval of your preference. However, its lack of automated driver backup and system restore point creation gives competitors some edge.   

Rating: 3/5
