The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 2.5
Keeping your drivers up-to-date is more important than many people think, as drivers are a vital part of any system. When they work OK, it ensures that security risks or performance issues won't transform into some serious problems.
Unfortunately, manually detecting allthe outdated drivers is rather tedious and difficult, but there are specialized tools that offer a much easier manner of performing this job. KC Softwares DUMo is one of these programs.

KC Softwares DUMo is a simple and straightforward application that lets you quickly see which drivers need updating. It actually performs the automatic scan for obsolete drivers every time you run it. Then it lists the outdated drivers with details like the device name, the manufacturer, the installed version, and of course, if there's a newer version available.

As for the actual updating of the old drivers, KC Softwares DUMo won't help you with that, at least not for free. Though it shows a “Download” button on the interface of the free version too, instead of including a direct downloading function that would retrieve the latest versions of the drivers from various online sources, KC Softwares DUMo only opens a web page from where you can download the newest release of the drivers, but only after you purchase the full Pro version of KC Softwares DUMo.

In conclusion, KC Softwares DUMo falls short of the target to provide the same important advantage as other similar driver updating tools. If you're looking only for a solution to check your drivers, then it's a decent choice. If you want to update the drivers within one interface, then you'll either have to purchase the full program's version or look elsewhere.

Pros

  • Simple-to-use interface.
  • The drivers' list also shows drivers' manufacturers.
  • The list can be exported to text files or spreadsheets.

Cons

  • DUMo installation offers you to install the RelevantKnowledge adware too.
  • The free version only lists the outdated drivers (you cannot update them within the program).
  • The interface cannot be customized.
