    "Good while it's free"

    July 8, 2013  |   By o0johntam0o

    Version: Gigaget Download Manager 1.0.0.23

    Pros

    All functions works fine
    It's a good "Download Manager"

    Cons

    I don't think that it makes my download faster! (maybe it slowed download since 2008 :D)

    "Best Download manager"

    March 29, 2012  |   By snehalmaisuria

    Version: Gigaget Download Manager 1.0.0.23

    Pros

    This downloader is extremely fast and is working will all the sites I have tried so far. I have a feeling this one will be staying on my PC for a very long time, at least I hope so.


    Gigaget is the next generation download manager which utilizes cutting-edge Net Grid technology that improves your download speed by 7-10 times.

    Besides, Gigaget fundamentally reduces the operational cost of content providers, while dramatically improving downloading effectiveness and reach. Net Grid Technology taps the unused resources of networked PCs and servers, allowing content providers to deliver large files with faster speed and at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.

    Cons

    None for about 3 years & best of all.

    Summary

    I've used this for last 3 years now, without a single problem. I am glad to know about it from Gizmo it is easy and powerful.

    "I'm sure it's great but too many problems"

    August 6, 2010  |   By Reaper1242

    Version: Gigaget Download Manager 1.0.0.23

    Pros

    Didn't use it long enought ot find out

    Cons

    -Would not integrate with Firefox
    -All support and FAQ links in app go to a some Chinese site that seems unrelated to the app.

    Summary

    I installed it and tried several times to integrate it into Firefox but to no avail. I tried the support and FAQ links in the app and they took me to a Chinese site that seemed to be related to movies and not the app.

    I uninstalled it and went back to Flashget.

    "this product is a MIRACLE by all standards"

    August 5, 2010  |   By purelypeace

    Version: Gigaget Download Manager 1.0.0.23

    Pros

    As a very heavy user of internet; I download typically 5 GBytes data every day.. This software is MIRACLE to say the least. Gives atleast 5-10 the speed of Internet download manager. Tried numerous download managers for last 15 years.IT IS THE BEST

    Cons

    NONE. EXCEPT THAT IT IS FREE. WHILE MANY OF ITS LOWER STANDARDS PEERS ARE HEAVILY PRICED. IT GIVES ULTRA-HIGH SPEED COMPARED TO ANY DOWNLOAD MANAGERS. So if you are on any limited data plan; be ready!!

    Summary

    IDM, touted as the best download manager in the world; was giving me 240 kbps. The Gigaget gave me on average minimum speed of 1920 kbps. So nothing short of miracle.

    Pros

    Only been using this a few days, when I can get it to work it's fine.

    Cons

    Can't get this to integrate with Firefox. When I click on integrate a screen comes up and I don;t know what it wants me to input?. When I click on the web site link button or help button, I am taken to a website that is written in Chinese Now what?

    Summary

    This would be great if I could get some help in English, and can get it to integrate seamlessly with Firefox. 2 stars at best for now. Anybody out there can help me on this?
