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. Luckily, it's easy to get used to. Nevertheless, the tabbed main window is straightforward. DAP also installs a handy toolbar in Internet Explorer and integrates with Firefox and other alternate browsers. Increased download speeds are the program's bread and butter, speeding up downloads by almost 200 percent in most cases. Besides 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 FTP client. We also found an interesting feature in the pay version 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.

Cons

After installing this program I noticed after a couple of days that my system wouldn't open for at 6 min at least at start up with a window saying 'virtual low memory', etc.... The computer starts only after 6 mins which is extremely irritating.

"It's a good program!"

July 20, 2008  |  By mahjong2

 |  Version: Download Accelerator Plus 8.6.6.2

Pros

It does increase download speed.

Cons

But it has too much annoying advertisement and does not work with Firefox 3.1.

Summary

If they could reduce or remove the ads it would be a plus.

Pros

I really like the ease of use on this downloader. My husband had and different one that required the URL to be typed in to an particular screen, complete, this one automaticly adds the downloads and provides the abillity to restart if interupted!! love it, I had an download that took three days, if i had to restart each time the connection was lost i never would have gotten done.
