    Upload 45KB/s this is see as a constant...

    But Utorrent sounds good, guess i will give it a try

    Pros: Its free.

    Its small (which is why its called MU, or Micro Torrent). Under 200KB.

    No installation necessary. Download the program file here from Download.com and run it...you are now on your way to using BitTorrent.


    It takes the best of the Azureus interface and adds it to the winner of an interface seen in BitComet.

    Program comes with a BOATLOAD of options...it is VERY customizable.

    Project has very active and easily-contactable admins/developers...you can make a bugreport or feature request and have it be dealt with easily.

    X button in upper right of window defaults to minimizing to system tray.

    Program comes with bandwidth throttling (also in Azureus). No one needs to be shelling out 100% of their upstream, especially me. uTorrent makes sure I can avoid that.

    Comes with DHT.

    Cons: While it does an excellent job in the interface department, mimicing the other top bittorrent clients (BitComet and Azureus) it fails in achieving the speeds of Azureus (which is the main torrent program which uTorrent strives to be...Azureus in C++ as I say). I find that I get ridiculous speeds on Azureus on HIGHLY seeded/leeched torrents. uTorrent on the other hand does not.

    Torrents in uTorrent take a LOT longer to initialize than in Azureus. By this I mean it takes a longer time for uTorrent to start transmitting data/making connections than for Azureus. I have tested this many times.

    It uses MainLine DHT. The DHT that Azureus uses is much better than Mainline DHT.

    The claim that this is only one file is fine, but they fail to mention that the program creates a folder with backup info here: C--DocumentsAndSettings--[user]--ApplicationData--uTorrent. I Have about 500KB worth of stuff in there from saved torrents to DHT cache. And since there is no uninstaller since the program is just a single file, you would never know to remove this if you wanted to remove uTorrent. So just be aware.

    .

    .

    .

    Its a great piece of software for obtaining torrents, but in a world where speed dominates, uTorrent just doesnt match up to the download speeds one can obtain through using Azureus.

    hhhmmmm I find this to be a based on one users opinion....because I have both clients Azureus and UTorrent......and the download speeds are basically the same for me...I see no difference in speeds....Azureus is a resource hog if you ask me..when compared to utorrent.....but anyways to each his own...
