Editors' Review

+

DownloadStudio is an attractively designed application with a number of thoughtful touches that both intermediate and advanced users will appreciate. Unfortunately, when it came to actually downloading files, we ran into some problems.

DownloadStudio impressed us most with its plentiful tips, Help information, and its plethora of customization options. Novices may still have trouble navigating all the terminology and options, but this isn't really a program designed for the new user.

The program opens by default to a Quick Start view that provides links to frequently used download actions and tools. In this view, actions such as Download File will start a simple wizard interface with plenty of descriptive information. An Expert mode provides additional fields and, like the wizard, offers a Help button that takes you to the relevant Topic. Browser integration allows you to grab files while surfing, and an optional "drop target" lets you drag files from the Web.

In addition to downloading files, you can explore sites directly to find downloads and subscribe to RSS feeds. For each feature, DownloadStudio offers many options. One great thing is the capability to specify settings, such as bandwidth limit, for each download, rather than for only all downloads as a whole. You can save a group of settings as a Download Template.

We were able to download individual files, including a 140MB .mov file and several smaller files, successfully. But when we tried to download two large (greater than 300MB) files simultaneously, we received the dreaded Not Responding parenthetical. In further trials, the application slowed or hung on multiple occasions, including during multiple-file downloads.

DownloadStudio looks and feels like a top-notch application, but, sadly, it didn't live up to our expectations. There's a short 15-day trial, though, for users to take this downloader for a test drive on their own to see if their results are better. As it is, we suggest power downloaders wait for the issues to be resolved before investing in DownloadStudio.

"DownloadStudio is Essential Software."

November 13, 2014  |  By prston

 |  Version: DownloadStudio 10.0.2

Pros

DownloadStudio provides faster and more reliable downloads.
I bought this software over a year ago. It improved the speeds of my downloads by breaking them up into 'packets'. Also, this software ensured that I received uncorrupted downloads by verifying the 'checksums' at completion of each download.
I view DownloadStudio as an essential utility.
Lastly, this software is highly stable: no problems with it on Windows XP or Windows 7.

Cons

I have not found any Cons while using DownloadStudio.

July 25, 2013  |  By Tomas_M

 |  Version: DownloadStudio 7.0.5

Nothing, because something that does not work can not have any advantages.

Cons

Not able do what it is supposed to do, namely manage download. Only hangs.

Summary

"Very slick application but not always stable"

December 27, 2011  |  By jurgfella

 |  Version: DownloadStudio 7.0.5

Pros

Very slick application with many useful features that allows downloading a single file or a range of files or an entire website or just portions of a website. Haven't found any features that were missing.

Cons

On my 32-bit desktop the application tended to crash after downloading between 800 and 900 files. On my 64-bit laptop, application did much better.

Summary

Very good program, but still some stability issues.

"The best Download Manager I have used!"

July 06, 2011  |  By RobertColeman

 |  Version: DownloadStudio 6.0.11

Pros

DownloadStudio allows me to download videos from YouTube, files from my favourite download sites such as Megaupload and filesonic.

Cons

No support for rtmp.

Summary

I've tried Free Download Manager, Internet Download Manager, Flash Get and Orbit and DownloadStudio is the best. If they added rtmp support it would be even better.

"Powerful Cross-Browser Download Manager!"

August 31, 2010  |  By leel5137

 |  Version: DownloadStudio 6.0.4

Pros

Download speed is fast-fast-fast, and the resulting downloads are easy-to-manage! New version (6.0.4) offers improved performance, and includes support for the latest iterations of Internet Explorer, Firefox (including 4.0!), Chrome, Opera, etc.

Cons

No "lite" or free version (However, the trial version is fully-functional for 15-days).

Summary

If you are in need of a download manager (and believe me, at some point you WILL need one), then Conceiva's DownloadStudio is a great choice. This software not only handles a huge variety of download-types from a wide array of sites, but also accelerates your download speed! The software is packed with features (I especially like the URL sniffer) and is easy-to-use. Software is available directly from the company, and can be found at http://www.downloadstudio.com

"I am disabled and this is my favorite software bar none"

July 06, 2010  |  By sirdouglascook

 |  Version: DownloadStudio 6.0.3

Pros

This program does so much for the disabled; it helps me find the files that I need.
I just tell it what I want and it finds it; It also remembers to only get the files that have changed since the last search. How perfect is that?

Cons

The only con that I can think of is that it took me so many years before I found it.

Summary

This product is so perfect for the disabled, the internet can be so confusing and complicated. This product is like a best friend sitting beside you helping you get
the files that you need. The interface is so simple to figure out; the more you
use it the more you realize just how many features and how powerful this
tool really is... Special thanks for making my life easier!!!
