Updating Driver Via Windows Update OR Offical Drivers

I have lenovo y530 notebook.
Today i saw windows 7 drivers on their website.
Lenovo Support - Drivers & Downloads
Here is the question
As you know windows update find most of (95%) of drivers itself.
Is it better to use office drivers or let the windows update to it itself ?

I would run the windows update then check that driver date with what lenovo has on their site. If the site one is newer use that one if they are the same then you should be fine.
