MP3 downloader

MP3freedownloader is a great way to download music to your pc, which can be transferred to your portable MP3 player, cell phone, iPhone, iPod, iPad, PSP, etc. for your enjoyment.

At first, I was skeptical, having downloaded many different programs, only to be disappointed with incomplete downloads, very low bitrates, limited libraries, or per download charges. But, MP3downloader will allow you to search for what you want from a huge library, download full versions at a decent bitrate, all for free. There is, however a 5 song per day limit, but you can upgrade to the unlimited version (which also gives you unlimited downloads, a choice of higher bitrates, batched downloads and an advanced search for a one time charge of $29.95. They also offer a way to get a free license for writing reviews of the product and posting them on your website, blog or message boards.

Downloading was quick and painless, just go to their site: and it will take you to their homepage with the download button right away. You can download in Windows XP, Vista or 7 platforms at either 32 or 64-bit. Within minutes you will be searching and downloading your favorite artists for totally free.

The product couldn’t be easier to use and has a very clean user interface. When you start-up the program you will get a window that will ask you if you’d like to upgrade or take the test drive; Close that window out and the dashboard will come up. Simply type in your favorite title, artist or album and the list will start coming up almost immediately. I found that, even with the free version, I could type in parameters such as “live”, “2007”, “mix” or just about anything to narrow down what I was looking for. For example, I searched “Van Halen Live 2007” and got well over 600 different files (I’m sure there were a whole lot more, I just quit looking after 31 pages of 20 each). And to my delighted surprise, there were several videos also mixed into my results!

Unlike most other programs that I have used in the past, MP3downloader will let you listen to the files BEFORE you download them. That was huge for me because I cannot stand it when I spend time downloading a file, only to find that the quality is garbage, it is cut short at the end or isn’t even what it says it is.

Last, but certainly not least, the files are safe. They DO NOT use peer to peer for this. There is no Malware risk either. You can rest assured that you won’t be downloading anything detrimental to your computer. That is real peace of mind for me, I’m always worried that something is going to get on my pc and destroy all of my docs, pics, etc.

All in all, this is a great product, well worth checking it out. As I mentioned earlier, they even offer ways to get the Pro version for free, you really cannot go wrong. Go ahead and give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
