DriverMax Editor's Review

DriverMax is a tool to help you keep your computer updated with the latest drivers. DriverMax helps to ease the tedious process of installing and updating drivers as the application not only installs new drivers but also keeps checking for latest versions of existing drivers and installs them. Once, the internet connection is live DriverMax also looks for any unknown hardware in your system and installs the appropriate driver for the same. A detailed report of new installs along with the hardware for which the driver has been installed is provided.

DriverMax is available for free and can be downloaded from the home site. The file is in compressed version and you will need decompression software like Winzip or WinRAR to decompress the files. Pop up box will prompt you to subscribe to the application after the initial 30 days but there is also an option to claim registration code for free. Only a valid email address is required to acquire the free code and the code is mailed within a time span of 48 hours. No functionality of the software is affected if you go for the free version.

While provisions for auto loading of drivers for hardware is also done by Windows, the utility of DriverMax stems from the fact that Windows is not as effective as a third party program like DriverMax. With DriverMax drivers are updated as soon as the updates are received by the operating system. So basically, it eliminates the need to carry an installation CD for every ware you want to setup on your computer, as DriverMax will update the driver for the ware automatically.

The attractiveness of DriverMax is mainly because of its simple and well laid out interface. DriverMax does not use the usual dialog boxes, menus and sub menus as other driver update programs and instead uses dropdown menus. DriverMax has four dropdown menus all located in the same window which provides with a more compact feeling to the software. Most functional options that are required in order to back up drivers,restore them and check the installed ones are present in the menu.  Drivers can also be sorted according to type which implies that drivers for monitors, hard disk and processors can be kept separately. There is a dialog operation box which facilitates import and export of drivers to a location designated by the user. A wizard guides you through the process and also provides information under which all circumstances the import and export of drivers are useful.

Sometimes though, driver downloading process can be time consuming and lengthy. While being a free user, there is no provision to download drivers from within the application. After scan, you’d be directed to its website where you have to wait for around 20-25 seconds. Although it is not too much of time, but is unnecessary. Slimdrivers, another similar application is better than Drivermax as far as driver downloading goes.

List of all installed or updated drivers can be viewed anytime from the application’s interface. Though viewing is extremely easy the view could have come with a better interface. Reports can also be stored in either TXT format or HTML format which is much better for viewing. The details provided for the driver in the view are the installation date, manufacturing company and whether it is signed or not by the manufacturer. Customized reports can even show which version of the driver is currently in use. Though the download option is also provided in the menu it is not fully functional as yet. However, the program keeps you informed about which drivers are out of date and even the ware does not download the drivers on its own you can always do a manual search online.

Positive Points:
 -    Provides easy and clean solution to keep a watch on System’s drivers.
 -    Requires only a single restart post installation.
 -    Automatically creates a restoration point.

Negative Points:
 -    Pretty ordinary looking interface.
 -    Driver Download does not work from within the software.

Conclusion:
DriverMax is available for free and does a good job at backing up drivers and updating them when necessary. Moreover, only one restart is enough for the changes in driver installation to take place which is a big relief over other wares which requires continuous restarts. As the download links are not fully functional in the interface itself it lags behind its toughest competitor Slimdrivers which looks to be a better Driver solution.
