AVG Driver Updater is a typical driver updating utility that scans your system, detects outdated drivers, and offers you to download their latest versions. As most of the many other driver updating tools on the market, AVG Driver Updater only scans your system and displays you the outdated drivers, as downloading and installing the newer releases of the needed drivers is only possible if you purchase the program's full version. So, I can already get to the point and say that the major, most remarkable attribute of this driver updater that makes it stand aside of the many other driver updaters is neither its price nor its set of features, but the fact that it's got “AVG” in its name. It's indeed developed by AVG Technologies, the famous company renowned for making the popular AVG security solutions, and this might be more than enough for many users to choose this driver updater over the other no-name ones.
While testing this product, I could also notice that it provides accurate scanning results. The drivers that I already knew to be outdated were also correctly detected by this tool as well. AVG Driver Updater is also really easy to use, intuitive and straightforward, so I think it's perfectly suitable for beginners as well. Handy additional features like driver backup capabilities or a scan scheduling function are also available.
To sum it all up, AVG Driver Updater is a nice tool that offers a fast, convenient and reliable method of keeping your drivers up to date.
