    "Great product, used it for years"

    April 29, 2017  |   By GregP507

    Version: Internet Download Manager 6.28 build 8

    Pros

    Always does the job, frequent updates keep it working properly.
    Intuitive interface.
    Customizable for most situations.

    Cons

    There seems to be no channel for user feedback. This is unfortunate, because I would like to see a few enhancements. Knowing how to use feedback constructively is the key to greater success.

    Summary

    Clearly the best tool available for retrieving data from the web.

    "Absolutely GREAT software!"

    February 21, 2017  |   By ekorver

    Version: Internet Download Manager 6.27 build 5

    Pros

    Downloads are very fast.
    Publisher keeps on top of his product and frequently updates.
    Updates are fast and smooth. This is the smoothest problem free software I own.
    I have tried many download managers and all had some kind of glitch or problem, but not this one. I was so impressed that I purchased it. I have been using it for several years now and it is well worth the small amount of money I spent on it.
    I wish all my programs would run as well as this one does.

    Cons

    Never encountered any.

    Summary

    Try it, you'll like it.

    "Slower than Others"

    December 27, 2016  |   By hazzad

    Version: Internet Download Manager 6.27 build 2

    Pros

    Nice Interface, Free trial to test for yourself

    Cons

    claims to be fast, DTa is faster and the segmented takes time to assemble after the download so even slower, price is too much lucky there was a trial

    Summary

    looks good but performance not the best accept at sites that recommend it...eg double dipping A-Holes, charging you to use there suite then recommending the IDM to get further money..grrrrr
    Funny how these site give top ratings to programs they make money off

    "This is the best software I ever used"

    October 21, 2016  |   By John Sr Peterson

    Version: Internet Download Manager 6.26 build 7

    Pros

    5 times download speed acceleration
    Scheduler to have downloads run during night time
    Grabber to download files from web sites automatically
    Video download feature shows download buttons next to videos in the Internet. You can now download and save all videos to your local disk
    . They sell 3 copies for $19.95 each for lifetime license. But you can purchase one-year license for as low as $9.95 per computer. This is not expensive keeping in mind all benefits you will get. Also the program is proved to be clean, no viruses, malware, adware, spyware or anything like that. The company released first version of IDM in 2001, so it means a thing, and IDM is still the best on the market.

    Cons

    The interface is outdated, but I managed to solve it by downloading W10 skin from IDM official web site

    Summary

    This program is a king of all download managers. It's small and it can be downloaded and installed quickly. The distribution package is clean, no malware, no viruses, I verified it on virustotal before installing. Then it integrates into your browser. I used Firefox and I received a message that IDM had been successfully integrated into Firefox. After that you can do the work you do. Once you have a file to download, IDM comes to the scene and starts working. It takes the download from browser and does the download job itself. Nothing unusual? Not exactly! Now look at the download speed, Oh my God, it's 5 times more than in the browser. I get 1MB/s in Firefox and 5MB/s in IDM. Wow! Also you can schedule downloads for night time to achieve better speed and while you sleep. It also has a grabber to download sites or files from sites to your computer automatically if you need it. BUT this is not ALL it can do. The best feature ever is video downloading. This feature is a gem, it shows "download this video" or "download this audio" buttons when you are playing a video in the Internet. So if your Internet is slow to play in HD, you can switch player to HD and download HD video with IDM in a matter of minutes. Then relax. Now you can play it anytime in best quality from your local disk. Imagine, all your favorite shows and movies can now be saved to your local disk and played as you like. After one week of use, I purchased 3 copies of IDM for my laptop, work and home computers.

    Updated on Oct 21, 2016

    I had a problem using IDM in Chrome later today. I wrote to IDM support line and they replied me in several hours with instructions how to solve the problem. You need to have IDM extension installed and be enabled in Chrome browser. They sent me clear instructions, and I was able to resolve the problem quickly. Thank you for quick response. IDM software, IDM suppor,t and the service are all great. Hi from Greece, everyone!

    "Worst piece of Software I've ever installed in my Life"

    September 22, 2016  |   By Blaster_Worm

    Version: Internet Download Manager 6.26 build 3

    Pros

    None to be found.

    Cons

    Tonec's internet download manager is by FAR and AWAY THE Most expensive download manager in existence today. And, That is for just ONE licence. God Help you if you have more than one device in your home.

    They cheat and Steal other people's technology. There is not a single thing that Internet Download Manager utilizes in its software that they didn't lift from the Original copyright holder. NOTHING unique. In fact, you can find it ALL in Free programs.

    What we think is worse by far is the fact that it is Continually "dialing home" without permission. Often, several times a day. It has no Permission to do this, without the equipment owner's consent. It does this Regardless of if you have the free or the Paid edition. They have specific backdoors they have inserted into your computer so that they can do certain updates, without your permission, but mostly to make sure you aren't trying to use it on more than 1 device. This is particularly Shady. You CANNOT turn it off. Also Hijacks

    Summary

    Worst piece of Garbage software ever created.

    Updated on Sep 23, 2016

    And, Good Luck getting this thing Uninstalled after it leaves remnants all over in your Registry. I'm Really surprised the Antivirus companies don't catch this as a Virus.
