Broadcom Drivers Update Utility is a simple-to-use piece of software made to identify outdated Broadcom drivers and update them automatically. It doesn't include complicated options or configuration settings, making it accessible to all types of users.
Installing this program is a fast and easy task that shouldn't impose any difficulties. It's wrapped in a user-friendly interface made from a normal window with multiple options.
The app is capable of running driver scans on the computer when it comes to the sound card, printer, video card, motherboard, webcam, wireless network, Bluetooth, FireWire, network adapter, Windows 7, XP or Vista, USB, chipset, AC97, DVD, router, and monitor.
After performing a PC scan, you can check out a list with all outdated drivers and the version of the latest one identified online. It can be downloaded and installed with just a couple of clicks, since Broadcom Drivers Update Utility takes care of the rest. Plus, you can do this for multiple drivers at once by making a bulk selection.
The software tool is also equipped with a feature for backing up the current drivers to file to restore them later if any OS compatibility issues occur. What's more, you can include hidden devices in the driver scan, as well as ask the tool to run at every Windows startup until further notice, automatically download all new drivers after the scan, shut down the PC after all downloads are completed, or download and install updates as soon as they're found. Settings can reset to default.
We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that the app didn't hang, crash or display error messages. It had a good response time and minimal impact on computer performance, using low CPU and RAM.
However, the unregistered version has some several restrictions that don't permit you to properly test the tool. Plus, the price of the full package seems too much. Nevertheless, you can test Broadcom Drivers Update Utility for yourself.
