Softpedia Editor's Review for DriverIdentifier
Scan your PC for outdated drivers
Written by Andreea Matei on June 5th, 2013
DriverIdentifier is a reliable driver scanner designed to inspect your computer in order to generate a report on outdated or missing drivers. In addition to this, the application also provides users with download links for the drivers in need of update.
The well-being and the performance of any computer depends on a robust device configuration, as well as on frequent maintenance operations. This includes driver care, amongst others. Outdated or missing drivers will often lead to errors, hardware issues and the impossibility to perform common computer operations such as listening to music or playing a game.
However, updating the drivers installed on the computer solves all of the problems mentioned above and improves the overall machine performance. Such an operation can be performed manually, which can be a time consuming process or automatically, using a third-party software.
DriverIdentifier is a reliable solution that aims to simplify driver care by thoroughly analyzing the machine configuration. It generates an online report that includes a list of all the installed drivers, along with details such as manufacturer, version and the status of each entry.
If an update has been detected, a download link is automatically generated, allowing you to save the installer locally and deploy it. The catch is that the service is based on a subscription, meaning that a fee is required in order to download the updates. The upside is that you can opt for a free account, one that grants you with access to all the updates for one day only.
Once you updated all of the drivers mentioned in the report, it is recommended that you run the application again, to make sure that everything is up to date. If the report shows that all your drivers are in good shape, it means the operation was successful.
To sum it all up, DriverIdentifier is a good alternative to performing driver updates manually. It is not alone in its software category, fighting competitors that are just as reliable, but ask a lot of money for the job. The free, one-day subscription is what brings it to the front of the list.
