    "Takes the strain out of regular episode downloads"

    October 9, 2009  |   By raybarclay

    Pros

    Easy to use and configure. Deals with those strange schedules that most shows seem to have nowadays, particulary the hiatus periods around the US holiday season. Good list of shows preconfigured.

    Cons

    Doesn't always find an acceptable show so sticks on an episode.
    REALLY BAD - It's changed to prefer shows encoded with a non standard codec, too suspicious to go near

    Summary

    TED has been great up until now, but unfortunately its day has gone.. It really made like much easier on a day to day basis and until recently was hightly recomemended to all who download TV shows.

    Howerver, the seeming move to prefer files that require the installation of what I regard as potential risky external software is too much to take. It has become frustrating and wasteful of bandwidth where it once was a great help.You might want to trust this codec but for me there is the added disadvantage that there is no way it will play on my WD HD or on any other non-computer based systems. Ted can be configured to avoid these but the effort ithen becomes greater than amount saved. Also, with some of the downloads pretending to be EZTV its best just to go straight to the horses mouth. It might be that TED is being exploited, and I do hope the two folk behind it sort it out, but for now it is untrustworthy and, sadly, not recommended.
