    "Previous version is far superior"

    January 19, 2013  |   By gsc_81

    Version: RealDownloader 1.0.3.0

    Pros

    None noticed

    Cons

    Drops recordings, even some at 90% completed. Others marked as complete with only 10% or less actually downloaded. Some downloads will zoom along and then crawl for a while. Then they either close as not downloadable or as completed even though only part of the file was saved. Private mode is a joke too. It shouldn't need to open the main RealPlayer program to run.

    Summary

    Don't bother with this version. Stick with the previous one.

    "One of the best free software ever"

    December 1, 2012  |   By ViewPadTablet

    Version: RealDownloader 1.0.3.0

    Pros

    I like the fact that the button appears asking you to download this video automatically when you're click or watching a video

    Cons

    It's not as fast as the Pro version

    Summary

    One of the best free and very useful software I ever use. I found it on http://www.downloadmusicsoftware.com and love it.

    "U S E L E S S ! ! !"

    November 17, 2012  |   By emoboy_777

    Version: RealDownloader 1.0.3.0

    Pros

    N O N E!!!...

    Cons

    1. It's useless.
    2. I haven't slept for almost a day trying to download videos but it never worked.
    3. It's useless.
    4. The "DOWNLOAD THIS VIDEO" Button really does appear, but once you clicked it, it downloads a different video that only lasts for 2 seconds.
    5. And did I just said it's useless?
    Oh, yes.
    IT'USELESS!!!

    Summary

    A waste of time, effort, patience and electricity. If you don't want your computer/laptop ended up being smashed...PLEASE, DO NOT TRY THIS!!!

    "Tries to slip Funmoods to you"

    November 12, 2012  |   By roymer

    Version: RealDownloader 1.0.3.0

    Pros

    Most of the time it quits working with Chrome

    Cons

    Funmoods is offered as choice you have to deny on the download. Funmoods is a nuisance Search Engine regarded as a virus/trojan and is extremely difficult to get rid of. I am surprised that Real has packaged this useless software with Real Download. If anyone gets stuck with this Funmoods nuisance, the only thing I found that could get rid of it is Spybot.

    "Didn't work for me"

    September 29, 2012  |   By clarkbgm

    Version: RealDownloader 1.0.3.0

    Pros

    I really did not find any pros.

    Cons

    This did not work for me. I installed and tried to download 2 videos of my grandson from facebook. Following their instructions, both videos downloaded in MP4 format. What I got when I tried to view the videos, was sound only. I tried several different media viewers as well. Also, Everytime I tried to open an internet connection after I installed the software and everytime I got a message of whether or not I wanted to run the software.

    Summary

    Either my install was unsuccessful; or missed a step in downloading; or a totally poor user. I was not impressed but, again, I may have had an error in the process. In any case, I would not recommend it. I downloaded based on CNET review which has not steered me wrong on any other download so I am not really sure what went wrong.
