SRA downloader is a program which makes it easy to download raw sequence data from the GEO or SRA databases. It allows you to use the SRA run selector (available from any GEO page) to pick which samples from a study you want, and then download a config file which you can feed to SRA downloader. It will then retreive the raw data for those entries and save it under a descriptive name which allows you to work with it easily.

More complete instructions on using the program can be found on the project's github page
