    Sorry I thought you meant something used to control your torrents from your phone. As far as a windows client I agree with jroc, uTorrent all the way

    I used Azureus, (I think thats called VUZE now) Bitcomet, Shareaza, Flashget, Bit Tornado (that was the first one I used years ago, got replaced with Azureus when it first came out.)

    Main reason I went with uTorrent was compared to Azureus, it didnt slowdown the PC. I havent used Azureus, Vuze in years so I dont know if it still does. Azureus did work good out the box tho. It took many versions of uTorrent to match that out the box experience.

    yeah, everythign else out there now is bloat. Vuze is the WORST, the footprint on that program is like that of a yeti.

    also, wrt speed, you are goig to want to cap your UPLOAD a little below your max, because if you peg the upload speed, it's goign to slow down everything as TCP connections require to send out ack packets and if the upload is pegged, it will be a lot slower to do so and thus slowdown the download speeds a lot.

    I'm going to let this thread stay open, but if we start to see any talk about transferring free movies, television shows, music, etc. we will shut it down. Just keep everything straight.

    i like utorrent it is lite runs smooth plus if you are into stuff like i am it adds missing .net files that normal installs or updates miss


    tpb is still fending off the lawsuit crap they was going thru. They was shafted how can a free region all of a sudden press charges over us copyright laws?

    They are open just be careful they are still in the watch list ALTHOUGH i thought they was only down for 3 days


    it is because this site want to be affiliated in the kind of mess that comes with copyright infringement and torrents is one of the main tools for that kind of stuff.

    Which i dont see why people d/l movies when you can just watch them online w/o violating copyright laws. hell i only watch a movie once why would i need a b/u lol

    with the new comcast xfinity you can watch all new releases for small price

    Regardless of how it's used, the bit torrent protocol is one of the most effective means for sharing files across many users.

    And uTorrent is my personal favorite.

    It might just be the beer, but I think there's a misunderstanding.

    Vuze (Azureus) was slowing down his PC, probably because it's written in Java, and Java has a lot of overhead by default. And yes, pegging your upload in a torrent will kill your download speed, because the TCP protocol needs to send and receive acknowledgments for the information it sends.

    Are you serious right now...? One word.. QUALITY!

    Every site on the web right now streaming is CRAP! (other than paid sites like netflex)

    You download Bluray copies and use HDMI from computer to big screen... BEAUTIFUL AND FREE!!

    Guess you need to be a movie buff to understand the lust :)

    I haven't used them all, but uTorrent is probably the most capable and easiest to use.

    The WebUI feature is amazing. I can manage uTorrent from work; don't tell my boss. I use Torrent-fu on my Droid, but the Android browser can access WebUI as well.

    However, the Droid lacks the precious ability to right-click... which severely hampers the usefulness of the browser GUI. Better off using Torrent-fu.
    In this digital age, copyright infringement is about as serious to young people as jaywalking. If movies and music are available for free on the internet, a cash-strapped, tech-saavy youngster will find a way, no matter what the RIAA, MPAA, and their legion of lawyers have to say about it.

    I'm conflicted over this. Despite regularly infringing on copyrights in this manner, I wholly believe in the rule of law, and that intellectual property holders should be paid for the fair value of their products. Pretty hypocritical, huh? I am both an upstanding citizen and a seedy internet thief.

    A study was done this year about illegal downloading of IP, and it showed that, on average, those who illegally download copyrighted material spend more money on these products than those who engage in no illegal downloading. A large part of this is probably a "try before you buy" mentality. Or, as in my case, just the sheer amount of media these infringers consume is so great, a large portion of it is bound to be legally bought anyhow.
