"Amazing Driver Updater"

I can't believe this is free. There is no limit to the amount of drivers you can update a day like with DriverMax. Also unlike DriverMax you don't have to go to another site to download a file before you download the drivers. The drivers are instantly downloaded and installed without having to jump through hoops like with DriverMax.

The downsides aren't enough to drag it down even one grade as long as DriverMax has more limitations for free users and still gets higher editor ratings than this which it shouldn't.

Overall this is the best free driver updater around. Everything is done within the app and there are no limitations. Also the complaint about appearance is pointless as an updater's job is to update the apps/drivers. I just can't see justification to use DriverMax anymore. That is unless you like to have a limit of driver updates a day and like to go to another site to download a file and then go back to the app to install the file.

Pros
  • No Driver Download Limit
  • Downloading And Installing Done Within The App
  • Free
Cons
  • Disables Windows Updates
  • Forces Restart After Drivers Are Downloaded
  • Starts Up With Computer Even When Told Not To
