DLExpert

CNET Editors' review

While this download manager does help speed up the process of grabbing files from the Internet, a lack of features and flexibility make DLExpert more amateur than expert. The process is simple: to start downloading, simply click the appropriate link in your browser (note: DLExpert only supports Internet Explorer) or copy the link into the program's Clipboard. We like that this freeware offers some basic automation options. Once the program has finished downloading, it can automatically log off and shut down. Also, DLExpert can sort downloads based on file type. That said, you can't schedule downloads, interrupt downloads midstream, or automatically log on to password-protected sites. If you want to give some punch to the download process, this freeware does what it's billed to do--just don't expect miracles from this basic program.

    "Ugly yet beautiful..."

    December 11, 2007  |   By Sociopathic Bliss

    Version: DLExpert 0.99

    Pros

    It does what it says. It's small. It's virus, spyware, & malware free. It's free! It even remembered and address from Opera, I'd read somewhere that Opera wasn't supported but this lends me to think otherwise (I never DL direct from my browser unless nesacerry).

    Cons

    It's ugly, butt ugly. Most dependable things are. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was for asthetics. Menu's are abbreviate f=file x=exit etc. Anyone who is familiar with using ANY program should adapt quickly and easily.

    "It does what it is supposed to do -- downloading in faster speed"

    July 20, 2005  |   By firoozfam

    Version: DLExpert 0.99

    Pros

    simple, fast, easy to use. It doesn't have a fancy GUI for a simple task, downloading.

    Cons

    assigning a task to it might be a little difficult sometimes.

    "The Stop is why it's good"

    January 10, 2005  |   By PCDUDE

    Version: DLExpert 0.99

    Summary

    The speed is no better than the IE downloader, but being able to stop the download and continue later is what makes this good. For whatever reason, it sometimes failes to pick up, and the Explorer downloader pickes up, but for being free, I would say that it's great!

    "The Best Download Manager!"

    December 25, 2004  |   By OpenVoice

    Version: DLExpert 0.99

    Summary

    I took all the pains to sign up with Download.com just to write my review on this product. And posting comments/reviews is something which I rarely do. To begin with, this program is as good as DAP if not better - in performance. You just need to get used to the UI. Also note, when starting the program for the first time, you will get a dialog box "Select Version", click on the drop-down menu and select "English (Default)" if you use English. You can also tick the "Don't display this ..". This program delivers what it promises. Any improvement it might need is in desgign aspects and inclusion of a help file. DLExpert is gonna be my favorite download manager for a long time. Excllent job, Chen Ying! Buddha bless you! Amen!

    "used it once - not impressed"

    July 25, 2004  |  

    Version: DLExpert 0.99

    Summary

    i havn't spent much time exploring/evaluating this. I downloaded a 3 meg file from cnet with this which took a lot more that i would expect windows to take. I had to chose a dll to run at startup... the default that came up was some weiered combination of chinese letters and "?"s. I had to do that again and chose the english dll. It gave me the download speed in bps instead of kbps and it wasn't clear that it ment "bits per second" or "bytes per second"... the speed it showed was unrealistic. When it showed no activity in its graph it was giving me 4mbs(in wat ever measure), which decremented gradually...it has some kind of untuned buffer which doesn't correspond to instantanious speed or it's really slow to do that. Not impressed with this program overall. I do not recomend this. DL accelerator/gozzila/mozzilla/getright...etc seem a better choice.

    "Amazingly free"

    June 9, 2004  |  

    Version: DLExpert 0.99

    Summary

    Very good, not as fast as DAP, but won't deliver you a spam/ad/nagging hell as DAP does.
    The UI is not very easy, but is clear for experienced users, and there is no eye candy to steal memory.
    3 thumbs up
    So if yopu want free, grab it.
