Driver Detective Review
Getting the right drivers for your system can sometimes be a big hassle. Oftentimes it's difficult to find the proper drivers for your specific hardware device. Drivers provide the interface between your computer hardware and your operating system so that Windows knows how to read the information that comes from your scanner, camera, mouse, video card, and more.
Having the exact drivers for your hardware is critical. If you install the wrong driver then your hardware will not run properly, if at all. This is where it becomes confusing for many people.
Enter automatic driver update software programs such as Driver Detective. These programs make it extremely easy to locate the proper drivers for your specific hardware and computer.
Program Basics Driver Detective Review
Driver Detective is a program that will scan your computer for all hardware devices and then compare your current drivers with a large database of the most up to date drivers available. You are then able to download each driver easily with the click of a button.
The interface of Driver Detective is very clean and easy to read. The buttons are colorful, although we thought the download and other informational icons were perhaps a touch too small.
Ease Of Use
Driver Detective is very easy to use. The scan runs very fast, so you're not waiting around very long. Our test scan took about 5 seconds. Everything is very intuitive, and there's a small key that shows you how to read all the icons.
Downloading drivers requires just a click from the Driver Detective interface.
Features Driver Detective Review
Driver Detective has access to a database of over 2,200,000 device drivers, and over 640,000 drivers that are specific to different computer manufacturers, such as Dell, Gateway, IBM, Toshiba, Compaq, and others.
Driver Detective is the first and only driver update service to offer drivers that are specific to the brand of your computer. It's very important to get the proper drivers for some manufacturer integrated hardware.
The useful driver backup wizard helps make it easy to copy all your new drivers onto a USB, CD, or other storage media. This reduces the headache associated with restoring and resetting your computer.
Driver Detective has great customer support. There's even a button within the program that makes it easy to contact Drivers HeadQuarters with questions about specific drivers.
