Softpedia Editor's Review for DriverEasy
Auto Detect, Download & Backup Drivers
Written by Elena Opris on February 13th, 2012
DriverEasy is an application that you can use to locate missing drivers and download them on your computer.
Once you initiate the program with the user-friendly interface, you can view system information that focuses on the machine, operating system, RAM, processors and motherboard.
But you can also view data about hardware, such as video cards, monitors, hard disk, network card and audio card.
So, all you have to do is initiate the scanning process and DriverEasy will start locating your missing drivers (e.g. keyboards, mice and other pointing devices, sound, video and game controllers, human interface devices, display adapters).
You can view the total outdated drivers, missing drivers, scanned devices and scanning time.
When you proceed to the "Download" tab, you can check out results found by DriverEasy, along with the size of each driver. First you have to download them, after which you can install or delete them, open their file location, hide items or report errors.
In the "Tools" menu, you can view hardware information, use a backup and restore system for the drivers, as well as uninstall them.
Furthermore, you can select the interface language, configure proxy settings, set DriverEasy to automatically create a restore point before installing the drivers and view a list of all hidden devices.
The program consumes a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and doesn't include a help file. Overall, it works smoothly. But sometimes it can take a very long while to download a driver. DriverEasy even freezes during downloading tasks.
In some cases, we weren't able to install the download items. Also, the demo version allows you to download only one driver at a time. So, we suggest you test DriverEasy for yourself.
