I ran my own bios update from the Acer website and installed it however was dated 5 years old, so i looked for another. I have Megatrends bios, followed link from their site to biosupdateagent, ran their scan which said updated bios available. Was charged $40 Australian as soon as i paid was given a Registry Program (not wanted) and no bios. Had to contact support with my computer make and mother board, next day a link Sent to me, the link takes me to exactly where i have updated my own bios. I download anyway, however the file clearly states that it is already on my system and do i wish to Overwrite it. This company has charged me $40 for a bios that i already have. Clearly no matter what their scan tells you there is a new bios. You purchase then there is not one available. You contact support they id your computer and send you a standard link to a normal update. Their scan has NOT ascertained that you already own it. I point this out to support they call it a newer version, when clearly my computer tells me it is a Overwrite required exact copy. I ask for a refund as i clearly am being sold by them my own possession. I am not given a refund and am told i am trying to steal from them a free updated bios. You have got to love the audacity of scammers is all i can say. Do not give them money, it is a scam, i give them zero stars, for product and service.
Downloaded all the recommended drivers, most aren't for my system, some don't work, some are older than the existing drivers.
I'll see if the promised BIOS update turns up (update - promised update doesn't exist!).
£20 worse off, hopefully slightly wiser - just annoyed that the link came from the BIOS manufacturer.
Update - looks like my refund is going to be processed. Let's hope they're telling the truth this time.

BiosAgentPlus did a "Free Scan" of my system and told me it had a new Award BIOS for me, and a new Video and Keyboard driver. I needed these new drivers due to an OS upgrated.
I trusted BiosAgentPlus because my BIOS manufacturer, Pheonix Technologies, had sent me there.
In order to download the drivers and BIOS, I would have to "Subscribe" for $29.95. After subscribing, I presssed Download. It said it would send me an email with information about the new BIOS. The email came and said there is no new BIOS for my system!
I downloaded the video driver. It was for the wrong video card and wouldn't install.
I downloaded the keyboard driver. The setup program was written in Russan.
I pretty much think this is a hoax site that promises you drivers for your system, make you pay, and then doesn't deliver.
