    Quick question.

    I need a torrent program, and wondered what you guys all use and if anyone has seen any real difference in speed from one program or another. And if you have any setup advice for it to boost speed please feel free to tell that here too.

    Thanks for taking a bit.

    Bit spirit is good program, my advice dont use too many torrents with lots of peers at once, cose itll lower your transfer.

    Older version of Utorrent Are the best IMO. Uses hardly any system resources and goes as fast as all the others.

    I second uTorrent, it's small and efficient.

    Edit: I used to use BitComet, but it was loaded with useless stuff so I stopped using it.

    i also think utorrent is the best

    it has a scheduler, which is useful if your isp has offpeak times you'd like to download in:)

    also, if you go to the about screen and press t, you can play tetris:)

    I tried different clients and I'm also using uTorrent now (it's almost the only thing I'm using my Windows PC for). I didn't know about the tetris thing though. [​IMG]

    Get the official bittorrent client. The company bought utorrent so they're one and the same now.

    Lots of responses, and fast. Thanks for all the recommendations. Time to research a couple of these now. [​IMG]
