Editors' Review

For users who download a great deal of content, there are always headaches in the process. No matter how fast your computer runs, downloading seems to slow down and complicate matters. GetGo Download Manager proved to be worthy of the task of taming the download process.

This freeware program will not be immediately noticed, as it comes as a command button on your Internet browser. But even then, this program doesn't come alive until users attempt to download music, movies, pictures, or other forms of media. A box will open asking if the user wants to use GetGo to download. From there, they are sent to a screen that shows what you are downloading, how large it is, where it comes from and how long it will take. At the bottom of the screen is a monitor of how much bandwidth this is taking. To the left is a navigation screen to look at all downloads past, present, and on hold. We appreciated the range of options for managing downloads, including picking the download folder, sorting videos into categories, and renaming files.

We were very impressed with the performance GetGo provided, as it lived up to its billing and downloaded media at a much quicker rate than expected. The program is organized in a very intuitive way and does a nice job of sorting out jobs. We highly recommend this program for any user who frequently downloads flash video files.

"WARNING! DANGER! DANGER!"

October 30, 2011  |  By movieslurp

 |  Version: GetGo Download Manager 4.8.1.1171

Pros

I HAVE NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS PROGRAM. IT IS A DANGEROUS PROGRAM AND I AM SURPRISED CNET HAS IT LISTED ON ITS SITE.

Cons

THIS PROGRAM IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! IT TAKES OVER ALL DOWNLOAD PROGRAMS ON YOUR COMPUTER!IT DOWNLOADS HUGE AMOUNTS OF InFORMATION FROM WEB SITES AND DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO DELETE THE DOWNLOADED FILES WITHOUT PURCHASING THE SOFTWARE! I HAD TO GO INTO THE ROOT FILE LEVEL TO DELETE THE FILES ONE-BY-ONE. IT DOES NOT CAPTURE .FLV VIDEO FILES WHICH IS THE PRIME REASON I DOWNLOADED IT. THE CURRENT VERSION WAS A WASTE OF MY TIME!

Summary

Please, be extremely careful about downloading this program! It has very limited control features for choosing which files to download from a website. Further, I used the feature one time and it downloaded 700 files from a website! Then the program would not allow me to delete the files unless I had the purchased version! Unless you are a computer expert, do not download this program. Additionally, I had to go through significant changes to uninstall the program including rebooting my computer three times. !ERY DANGEROUS SOFTWARE FOR THE BEGINNER!

Pros

I like what it have its speed and all of it's bells and wishels.

Cons

But i would not want to upgrade because it don't want to take over a downloads like other download managers do.60% of the time firefox comes and take over the download so what do i need with GetGo.

Summary

I would give it two stars.
