about Internet Download Manager Dec 2011

It's a very good software, the team is very active, it's extremely complete in terms of features but the price tag is a bit too much for me. it's 30$ for a year of support. 30$ for every major version would have been wiser but that's just my opinion based on other programs i bought.

Worth buying

about Internet Download Manager Jun 2011

+Worth buying.
+Kind support team.
+Trick to make download faster: if the site support resumebility, after several MB (i.g. 30 MB each parallel download), pause it, and the speed will be much faster.

King of all download managers.

Positive Comment by arabozo
about Internet Download Manager Jun 2011

King of all download managers. I use it on my windows 2003 server in a chicago based datacenter with a 100mbs port.
It accelerates my downloads at least 20 times. Using IDM I can use full speed of my port, other download managers simply fail to do so.
