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.

"This is the best. Don't look else-where"

June 21, 2011  |  By shankar_n

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.05 build 14

Pros

Great speed and downloads pretty much anything.

Cons

If you use this in a low bandwidth internet connection, might slow down the internet in other machines connected.

Summary

I used is everyday. If you download a lot, you need this. Its worth every penny. I have used other software's but they don't come close to IDM.

"Best download manager I've ever used......"

June 21, 2011  |  By Ayush_Singh

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.05 build 14

Pros

Very good software.Completes all downloads and also resumes them.We can also put our files to be downloaded in a queue,which automatically tries to download them in short intervals if the file is not being downloaded properly...

Cons

Not so much,but it should be free and some files are not able to resume or pause...

Summary

Very good download manager but its not free.It automatically detects streaming videos and audio files in a webpage and displays windows to download them.We can pause most of the downloads and resume them when we wish to,even after several days.At last best download manager but has only one month free trail period....
