I'm sure you are saying to yourself, "Ho-Hum just another download manager". Well that is as true as a Rolls Royce is just another car..

Yep GetRight is the Cadillac, Mercedes, and Rolls Royce of Download Mangers. Have I got your attention yet?

In my position I have had to test lots of download managers and I will say without hesitation that GetRight is the best. The first clue you might get is that it is at version 5+. Of course just because something has been around for awhile doesn't make it good. But in this case it does.

So what makes it better? Well probably the first thing that comes to mind is it's ease of use. In my book that means a lot. Here is what I mean. The default configuration that GetRight ships with will probably fit your situation. It fit mine. And I couldn't even get any other download manager to work with my configuration. Don't ask me why the others won't work, because I don't know. What I know is that GetRight did right out of the box.

Yes GetRight does the usual things that you expect from a Download Manager. Like break the file up into parts to speed up the download and if you get disconnected or cut off from the site it will resume the download. But it also does it more intuitively than the others. Plus it does other stuff to, like has a built in GetRight Browser so that you can organize your downloads. It also will let you set it up so that any downloads will be virus checked. Also it will help you out with those sites you download from that require a login/password by letting you put the information in once and then GetRight will remember it.

There is lots of other stuff to like it will speed up downloads by finding mirror servers. And it will also help optimize your internet connection.

In conclusion. What are you waiting for? Go out and get GetRight now! I guarantee you will be pleased with it.

Try It! Buy It!
