Editors' Review

+

This download manager brings much more to the table than fast file transfers, but it definitely delivers those, too. Upon installation, Download Accelerator Plus asks for your e-mail address in hopes of sending you special offers, but you don't actually need to submit any information. Although the program is free, the trade-off is the "information panel" that displays software advertisements in the right portion of the interface. Luckily, it's easy to get used to. In most other respects, the tabbed main window is straightforward to use and navigate. Download Accelerator Plus also installs a handy toolbar in Internet Explorer and integrates with alternate browsers such as Firefox.

Increased download speeds are the program's bread and butter, and it doesn't disappoint, speeding up downloads by almost 200 percent in most cases. Besides using the common tactic of splitting files into smaller pieces, it automatically seeks faster mirrors. It also can get a file simultaneously from several sites, which is useful if a particular site limits the download speed. Other useful tools include the ability to resume interrupted downloads, log on to protected sites, and schedule downloads at low traffic times for faster downloading. We appreciate the extra tools for organizing media and finding games, as well as the basic yet functional FTP client. We also found a very interesting feature (only in the pay version, however) that allows you to resume all downloads, whether a server supports it or not. All things considered, this feature-rich program will prove valuable for most avid downloaders.

"An Amazing Tool!"

July 22, 2012  |  By TiagoSportingCdP

 |  Version: Download Accelerator Plus 8.1

Pros

The new version of Speedbit is amazing Really fast download speeds and tons of other great features. I paid for the premium version and I'm not disappointed, for the time and hassle you save its well worth the few dollars payment.

Cons

Since I have to write something here... I guess the biggest downside is that the premium features are not included in the free version!

Summary

If you love music and cinema, I really recommend.

"Its Very Goooood!!!!"

March 25, 2007  |  By noexecuses

 |  Version: Download Accelerator Plus 8.1

Pros

I was lucky enough to get a 30 day trail with the premium version. There is nothing to say but it is exceptional. Now although the free version is okay after you use the premium its hard to go back. But if your just trying em out its worth it. I am trying out numerous downloaders so far this one is on top. Its worth the money.

Cons

The Free version just doesn't have the power as the premium. But as the story goes you get what you pay for.

"Many More Cons Than Pros"

March 25, 2007  |  By MerrilB

 |  Version: Download Accelerator Plus 8.1

Pros

Downloaded files stored in own program

Cons

First of all the primary download link does not work - stops at 706K out of 5.77MB and comes up with warning sound and warning message of corrupt file, so go straight for the alternative download provided if you want to download this.

The software is NOT, as stated, free or unlimited - it is a 30 day trial after which you must pay $29.99. Initially I had in the "pros" section that you can pause downloading - but I have just realised (in the time it took the page to turn as this is making my whole computer run so slow) that this is only for paid subscribers, so I went back and have edited that out.

The biggest con, though, is that downloading is now SLOWER than before - I am on dial-up right now and have a 29MB file to download, before I downloaded this "accelerator" it downloaded it at 3.77Kbps (but connection failed at 98%), after downloading accelerator it is currently downloading at 0.66kbps - I've never known it so slow!!! Also I don't like the new downloading box it has installed, if you want to keep the program you must keep the new download box and tool bar.

Have only used this one time and will leave it to download this one program after which I will uninstall it this afternoon. Not free and does not do as it says. Pro is too vague to warrant keeping this program and overall I found it genuinely extremely disappointing.
