To update drivers on your computer, you may want to use DriverFix. But is it a good software to update drivers? Is it safe? Here’s the full review of DriverFix. Read on then you’ll learn more about this software.
What is DriverFix?
A driver is a software component that allows the operating system and a device to communicate with each other. With missing drivers, a device won’t work properly.
Generally, you don’t need to install drivers on your own as Windows will install drivers automatically. However, Windows isn’t perfect. In some cases, you might need to manually install drivers for a device to make it work.
You can go to the device manufacturer or PC manufacturer’s website to download the driver. Or you can use a third-party driver updater to help update drivers. DriverFix is such a kind of driver updater.
DriverFix is a Windows driver updater created by a tech company called DriverFix.com, Inc. It can scan your computer to detect outdated and missing drivers and allows you to download and install new drivers with just a few clicks.
Who is DriverFix for?
Drivers can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website. So you can download the drivers manually from the manufacturer’s website. However, it takes time and requires a bit of computer skills.
If you want to save more time on updating drivers, DriverFix is for you, as it allows you to download and update drivers with just a few clicks. You don’t have to spend tons of time searching on the internet for a driver.
If you want to keep your computer drivers up to date, DriverFix is for you, as DriverFix keeps their driver database updated. Whenever you run the DriverFix, the software scan your computer to detect outdated and missing drivers, and then provides you with new drivers.
If you can’t find a driver on your own, DriverFix is for you. DriverFix has a large driver database which ensures to provide drivers for most devices.
DriverFix focuses on driver updates so it doesn’t have many features, except the main features driver update and driver backup.
Driver update feature: scan your computer for outdated and missing drivers, download and install new drivers.
Driver backup feature: automatically back up drivers before you update drivers.
- User Interface
DriverFix provides an easy to use interface. One of the reasons is it only has two main functions.
After launching the application, you can immediately tell how to use the software to scan your computer, how to download and update the drivers. Besides, you don’t have to spend much time learning the functions of the software. The functions of this software are just driver update and driver backup.
- Free Trial Version
DriverFix provides a trial version. Though the trial version is not completely free, you still can use it to finish driver updates by downloading and installing new drivers. You can use it to download drivers automatically and install drivers manually. The driver backup feature is also available in the trial version.
- One-click update feature
The one-click update feature of the software allows you to update all drivers with just one click. This makes updating drivers more easily. However, this feature is only available in the Pro version.
- Refund Policy
DriverFix offers a 60-day money back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with the product, you can request a refund within 60 days from the date of purchasing the product.
Generally, 60 days is long enough for you to test the product and determine if the product is good or not.
- Customer Service
The live chat support of DriverFix is 24/7 available. You can contact their support through live chat if you encounter any issues while using their product. Generally, the support will reply to you in a few seconds.
I looked through the reviews provided by their customers on Trustpilot and found most customers give a 4-5 star rating because of excellent customer service.
The price offered by DriverFix is a little high. To upgrade to the Pro version, you need to pay at least $19.95 for a year. This is higher compared with some other driver updaters like Driver Booster.
- Download Speed
The download speed in the trial version is extremely slow. The time cost may equal the time you take to download the driver from the manufacturer’s website manually.
I assume this is one of their sales tricks to make you upgrade to the Pro version.
To access the one-click driver update feature, you need to buy a license key to upgrade to the Pro version. They offer three purchase options:
Personal Pack: $19.95/year – 1 PC
Family Pack: $29.95/year – 3 PCs
Extended Pack: $39.95/year – 10 PCs
The software offers email support and 24/7 live chat support. To ask for further assistance, you can contact their support via email or live chat.
My Final Opinion of DriverFix
DriverFix can help you find new drivers quickly and allow you to download and install drivers easily. The free version allows you to finish updating a driver, but takes time.
If you have little knowledge about drivers, this software is good for you. You can update drivers easily with this software, even with the free version. Just a few clicks are required.
If you have a budget, the Pro version is recommended. The one-click update feature makes updating drivers more easily. After clicking a button, all drivers will be downloaded and installed automatically.
Is DriverFix safe?
Yes. The software is safe. It doesn’t contain any virus and malware. It’s also not built with any other third-party software.
Is DriverFix Free?
The software offers a trial version but is not completely free. To access the key features, you’ll need to pay to upgrade to the Pro version.
