    so far i used just simplix pack to update windows 7 sp1 after clean installation, but i would like to know how wsus offline update stands against simplix pack from the people who used both tools?

    is it better, same or worse than simplix pack? good way of stating differences between the two would be pointing out advantages and disadvantages of both tools.

    thanks in advance!

    WUD has not been updated for months - at least I could not find an up to date listing better than March 2015....

    Tried PortUp once and didn't like the updates install procedure (easily lost in the begining).
    Simplix is the fastest for me but there is no way to exclude individual updates from installing and there are few i don't like. It also tweaks registry for MRT and disables "spying" scheduled tasks. U have to wait every month till the creator renew the pack to get new updates.
    WSUS is what i use mostly, bit slower than simplix in searching and installing updates but still much faster than WU. U can make exclude lists if u don't want some of the KB's. It also can update C++, NET framework , IE, RDP, Defender, Office ...

    I really think you should try out WHDownlaoder, there is also some nice batch files from abbodi1406 to integrate them online or offline, WHDownloader Updates Installer: W8.1 - W7 - Office

    ok after testing 4 well known windows update tools, i've come to conslusion that the best solution is - none of them!

    in fact, the only solution that will save your nerves and precious time is to use .iso with integrated updates, not more not less.

    4 clean installs with 4 different update tools + time spent with each one to fully update new windows installation.

    also taken in consideraton is update process of each individual tool, its speed and installation routines.

    of course, this is my subjective point of view, since the time for me is a very precious category.

    Yet it is the only variable that is pretty much indefinite, will never run out...

    Not at a personal level... we certainly have a finite amount of this variable and we're running out of time all the time! One day, we'll be out of it all together. (closer for some of us old gits than others)

    Anyway... I prefer Simplix Pack myself, for my Windows 7 and Server 2008R2 installations. It seems to do the job and I certainly can't be bothered making a new ISO every month or so. I really appreciate the effort put into making and updating the Simplix Pack for us. It saves me some of my finite but quantity-unknown time.
