"It gets the job done."

February 28, 2006  |  By RedDragon888

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.02 build 5

Pros

I have used this program for nine years. In that time, I have tried IDA, Getright, and Gozilla(?). None was as simple to use as IDM. (1) Its lack of polish is actually its advantage since its straightforward interface shows only what you need: download status. (2) The ability to limit simultaenous downloads and download speed makes this program useful even under dial-up. (3) Speaking of which, the resume ability, which is available for almost all websites, is tremendously helpful for twichy connections.

Cons

If you use browser integration, there is an occasional tendency for the program to download things it's not supposed to, such as graphics for web pages.

"I can't say enough about this great product!"

February 16, 2006  |  By Fred Terner

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.02 build 5

Pros

Easy to install and it works great! I use this with my cable internet connection and get downloads at 360kb/sec on the average. Even see speeds at 460kb/s. Depends on the source server. Really saves time and I haven't had a disconnect yet(2 mos)

"Horrible program."

February 15, 2006  |  By JMac26

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.02 build 5

Pros

Accelerates downloads as well as any other program.

Cons

This program is a bully. When you install or uninstall it, it forces you to restart your computer. It will pop up a window that upon closure (even by clicking the X in the top right corner) will restart your computer. You cannot put this window in the background. And when your trial expires, you cannot configure the program to stop intercepting your downloads automatically, so you can't just leave the program on your machine, you must uninstall it. Use Internet Download Accelerator instead. It works just as well and you do not need to restart at all!
