As the name suggests, Acer Drivers Update Utility is a software program developed to update drivers of Acer systems. It does so automatically and features several useful functions, such as backup and restoration.

Setting it up takes little time and minimal effort. Scanning starts with the click of a button, and Acer Drivers Update Utility will look into drivers concerning the sound card, webcam, network adapters, USB and router, wireless, printer, chipset, monitor, Windows 7, Vista or XP, video card, Bluetooth, AC97, FireWire, motherboard, and DVD.

It is not possible to customize the driver type selection prior to scanning. However, you can select individual drivers to download and install on scan completion. Information includes the new found version and download progress.

Apart from backing up and restoring drivers easily, it is possible to include hidden devices in the scan, as well as set the program to automatically download all new drivers after scan and to shut down the computer as soon as the downloads are done.

Additionally, Acer Drivers Update Utility is able to automatically run at system startup and download and install updates when they are found. Settings can be restored to their default parameters.

The straightforward application runs on a very low quantity of CPU and RAM, so it does not burden the PC's overall performance. It has a good response time and carries out a scan job rapidly and without error.

We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, since the app did not hang or crash. However, the unregistered version is severely limited, and Acer Drivers Update Utility's capabilities can be tested only to some extent.
