Editors' Review

The name might not be the most creative, but the Internet Download Manager does exactly what it promises: helps you download and organize files. The best part is that you can schedule downloads and use filters to get the specific files you want.

The compact interface is packed with options, but the main features are easily accessed from a toolbar at the top. We would have liked to see a bit more user guidance up front, but a tutorial does cover the basics, and there is a more detailed Help file if you get stuck. You can also go the easier route with the program's integrated Web browser options, which work with nearly all of the most popular browsers, including Internet Explorer and Firefox. Each time the program recognizes a video in FLV format on a site like YouTube, you'll see a button, and it's one click and you're off and running. From the main interface, all you have to do is add the URL for a video to get started. A new window shows you the status and allows you to pause the recording and set up a few options for what to do with the file once the download completes. As advertised, the speed was good and we didn't have any issues with test files we downloaded, which included MP3s, FLVs, and MPEGs. Our favorite feature was the scheduler, which was easy to set up and lets you choose where and when the program will download files. We especially liked the fact that if you lose your Internet connection, the program will resume downloading your selected or scheduled files once everything's up and running again.

The download and installation of IDM was easy and fast, and it uninstalled cleanly. If you're looking for a program that you can basically set and forget to video downloads, this is a good option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Internet Download Manager 6.12 build 15.

"OK! Listen up PLEASE :)"

January 19, 2011  |  By HassanZombie

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.04 build 2

Pros

Full speed and customizable, easy to use and configurable AND the price is nice for a LIFE TIME license and 1 year free upgrades.

Cons

Nothing at all.

Summary

Well, see I have been using IDM for at least 5 years since I was 15.
I'm a MASS downloader and I love downloading. I download about 2G a day [movies, games and software].

So I can tell you It's the best ever download manager and accelerator ever made AND when I see these BOTS and STUPID PEOPLE judging IDM without even having -not a little PC experience- but the ability to read and understand!.

REALLY WHAT'S WORNG WITH YOU PEOPLE??? With all these negative comments and reviews.

IDM here in Egypt is number 1 and look at that..even when I got worried about the BUGS in the integration with Google Chrome 7 and 8 .. It was FIXED right away.
SO what can I say? I JUST love it :)
Forever and ever IDM in my heart :x

"THE BEST.FAST AND RELIABLE."

January 13, 2011  |  By Gerald-white

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.04 build 2

Pros

Functioned as advertised. Easy to load. Easy to use. Easy to remove before installing purchased version. The price is reasonable when put in perspective with everything your going to download for free!

Cons

A download manager for those who hate download managers

Summary

I've always considered download managers to be standard bloatware--the kind of thing you have when you don't know better and then you learn and quit using them. However, I recently ran into trouble trying to download really big files in that they wouldn't complete. IDM not only solved the problem spectacularly but has earned a permanent place on my computer for it's ease of use, incredible speed and most importantly: it's unobtrusiveness. Great utility. Well worth having.
