"Works well for me. Minor glitch."

August 03, 2012  |  By milo-oshea

 |  Version: Broadband Download Monitor 1.3

Pros

Intuitive. Meets my needs. Can be installed on more than one machine to monitor household demand.

Cons

Prevents my PC from shutting down cleanly. Need to go through shutdown drill twice. Perhaps I should have disabled defensive software before installation. Will reinstall at the end of my first, test month.

Summary

Intuitive, free. Appears to work as described. One minor glitch for me.

"Only partly working!"

October 05, 2011  |  By mary_aileen

 |  Version: Broadband Download Monitor 1.3

Pros

Trying to get some idea of my usage as this is the first month of limited downloads. May help - not sure.

Cons

Can only get it to work partly i.e. Show Downloads Summary screen will not open at all can only get Preference screen to open.
Have emailed twice about this and left comments for them but have not received any reply.

Summary

Don't bother, they are not interested in whether it works for you or not.

 |  Version: Broadband Download Monitor 1.3

Pros

Easy to load

Cons

Does not run on Win7 and it would not find .net (may only work on early version) on WinXP machine. So no use at all.

Summary

No use.

"Why do I need to log on every time I use it ??"

June 14, 2010  |  By AlphaUK

 |  Version: Broadband Download Monitor 1.3

Pros

Don't know.
I have no experience of using this software - once I discovered I needed to create an account and log on to a server somewhere every time I wanted to use it, I uninstalled it straight away.

Cons

Should not need to log on anywhere to use a simple piece of software.
I would be concerned about security and what information is being passed from my computer to their server.

Summary

I have no experience of using this software - once I discovered I needed to create an account and log on to a server somewhere every time I wanted to use it, I uninstalled it straight away.
A simple piece of software like this should not need logging on to any where.
I would be concerned about security and what information is being passed from my computer to their server.

"Reliable!!"

May 24, 2010  |  By justclox

 |  Version: Broadband Download Monitor 1.3

Pros

This monitors all computers connected via our internet access hub

Cons

Doesn't appear to reset its self at the end of the month. Alittle more explanation on the monitor would be good ie. Why would I want to set an alert for a download test, and why would I want to test it?

Summary

It is easy to use. Install it then forget it, no hassle to load or operate

"Can't get it to do anything useful."

March 19, 2010  |  By dovidle

 |  Version: Broadband Download Monitor 1.3

Pros

It's free/

Cons

All it does is give a pop-up window every now and again. The window may contain some useful information but it disappears before I can read it.

Summary

I downloaded this because I was exceeding my download limit. So I wanted to find out when it happened and monitor my usage. It has not helped. I am none the wiser. There may be a way of setting it up which makes it useful, but I haven't had time to find it.
