MP3 Free Downloader

CNET Editors' review

MP3 Free Downloader is a program for safely finding songs online and downloading them for free so you can enjoy them any time offline.

The general layout and design of this program is sleek and easy to navigate. We had a major issue with the performance of the program, however. While it easily found song results in a matter of seconds, when trying to listen to or download a song, it simply did not work. This might have been because we tried the free version; allegedly, the paid version of the program is faster. That should have meant that some sort of download progress could be made with the free version, though, which we saw none of after waiting for 20 minutes. If it does work for you, you'll probably like the fact that this is a lot safer for your computer than browsing the Internet for songs on questionable sites. But, since it just simply didn't work for us, we can't say anything about the speed or quality of the downloaded music. We went to Support to see if there was any information about the issue we had, but there wasn't anything helpful.

Downloading the MP3 Free Downloader is fast and simple. Once it was installed, however, it immediately stopped responding after starting up. We really don't know why it didn't work for us. We would suggest trying something else.

    "I use it. All the songs you want for free download."

    November 8, 2013  |   By davidroper

    Version: MP3 Free Downloader 2.9.4.8

    Pros

    can find almost any song you want. You get many versions of it, maybe 100 so people who fuss about it are just lazy. The support is good, takes only a day. very polite staff.

    Cons

    It doesn't work as well as it did years ago. many times a program cannot be downloaded and I must repeated try again. l try to DOWNLOAD AGAIN with a right click menu. And there's TWO places to download each song. that's NUTS. Remove one of them.

    Summary

    get it. Pay for the $25 version for extra HiFi versions.

    "Finds Almost Any Song, but Many are Poor Quality"

    August 15, 2013  |   By tracytomm

    Version: MP3 Free Downloader 2.9.2.8

    Pros

    It is easy to search for a song using the title or artist. The program will then quickly present a list of songs that match your search criteria. You can click on any song in the list to preview it (sometimes you have to click many times to get it to play).

    Cons

    1. The program is quirky. You may have to click several times to get a song to play, and the download may fail several times. You have to keep restarting it and eventually it will work.

    2. The music quality is hit and miss. I don't know how this program works but I can guess. Copyright laws pertain to digital music which never degrades when it is copied. So to avoid those laws I am guessing this program finds music on the internet that is not in a digital format, such as music that is in a youtube video. And this music may or may not meet your standards. Some of it reminds me of when I recorded songs on the radio to a cassette tape. Some of it sounds like I am playing a CD. The only way to know the quality of the music file is to listen to it before you download it.

    Summary

    I purchased the paid version of this program so that I could download music at 320 kbps, however I soon found out that that does not always mean I will get high quality music files. The quality depends on the quality of the file on the internet. You may have to preview several songs until you find one that sounds good. Downloading at 320 kbps is not going to improve the sound of a bad recording.

    This program is not for audiophiles. It is for people like me who think of a song and want to download it. And when I search for the song I may also find many other songs I like by the same artist and I download them too. And if I listen to those songs often, then I may decide to buy the CD so that I get the best quality.

    If you purchase this software thinking you will never have to pay for another mp3 song again, you may be disappointed.
