"It's really nice!"

October 11, 2013  |  By blackheart123

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.05

Pros

I can download at very fast speed. It saves me hours of my life. Also can download videos from all websites as long as the video plays. It has also an easy GUI. Very friendly to its users.

Cons

You can only try it for a limited time(1 month) for free, after that you have to pay unless you usually reformat your computer every month. It hogs the internet bandwidth resulting to lag of other activities. It's bad to use it on a computer shop because it surely affect other computers inside the network.

Summary

Overall, it's a nice software if you don't care about the others around the network. It can surely accelerate your download.

"Best of the Best."

November 24, 2006  |  By xTerminus

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.05

Pros

I've tried several of these. Many of them don't actually accelerate the download much if any. This one is the best & absolutely fastest in my tests, plus it doesn't wrongfully try to intercept .torrents or webshots like some do *cough* IDA *cough*.

Some of the speed you achieve will of course depend on your ISP, but often times a download server is giving you nowhere near what your ISP is capable of. I use Comcast for example, yet some servers will only download at about 25-250KBs, but IDM will pull those same files at over 1MBs, that's bytes not bits. So you're looking at 8Mbs (8000Kbs) vs 200-2000Kbs.

It routinely achieves more than 500% acceleration rate which is a huge time difference on very large GB+ files. Also, the files begin downloading immediately, before you even name them or specify the location, so on smaller files it will seem instantaneous because by the time you name it & select the location it's already on your hard drive.

Cons

I don't find any cons here except perhaps the cost, but if you've ever tried "Free Download Manager" you will see that the only resemblance is in the interface, the speed just isn't there, at all.

"Finally I've decided To Make A Purchase"

November 15, 2006  |  By UM Canes

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.05

Pros

I've probably tried all the download managers there are. This includes the free ones to the free trials of the available paid app's. This one is the best to me. I have a cable internet connection and without an accerelation download manager the bast average speed was about 300 kbs. With the others I've tried 750 kbs. With this one a slow download is 1.2 mbs. Big difference. It never gives me a corrupted download and works with all of my browsers

including "Firefox" and my favorite "Slim Browser". Very good and worth the money to those who have the need for an app. of this type. "5 STARS" for real! I especially like that it puts the downloads in the appropriate folder with other downloads of the same type.

Cons

So far I've found nothing at all to complain about.

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.05

Pros

Have been using IDM for many years now and I can see the developments that have taken place. Its got the best browser integration, its reliable from dial-up to the DSL download freaks. Interface is simple to use. Certain facilities open up after purchase and its clearly worth purchasing.
