"Better than others"

April 26, 2006  |  By abhijit_net

 |  Version: Azureus BitTorrent Client 2.3.0.4

Pros

Other clients just dont start downloads, this one atleast started downloading.

Cons

It is JAVA based, uses lots of RAM.

For using full bandwidth of my connection, i started 6 downloads simultaneously. Even with 6 downloads it dint use full bandwidth.

But while uploading things are different, it uses full bandwidth available, so i had to manually reduce upload speed.

Torrents are the slowest way of downloading any thing. Download torrents only if there is no other option left.

"Good bittorrent-client, but uses too much memory"

March 20, 2006  |  By BertramGBG

 |  Version: Azureus BitTorrent Client 2.3.0.4

Pros

You get really good download speeds and it is easy to use.

Cons

Uses way too much memory, always 70-90 MB, which makes at least my computer run too slow. If you don't have lots of RAM, I would recommend BitComet instead. Not as fast, but doesn't use as much RAM...

"It Really SUX.....Lots of System Resources Reuired.... Try "BitComet Turbo""

March 14, 2006  |  By praveen360

 |  Version: Azureus BitTorrent Client 2.3.0.4

Pros

Are you new to "Torrents"?? So am I.

I tried many torrent clients, but was not able to get the job DONE. Being a Limewire/Morpheus/eMule User I had difficulty in SEACHING & Understanding this "torrent" business.

My Advice to new Users is TRY Using Help/other User Manuals on how to use these Clients, Its worth IT.

There were MANY "Torrents" Clients. DOWNLOAD 'BitComet Turbo' instead of Azureus /BitComet.

+ File Availability / Range and Download Speeds are EXCELLENT with "BitTorrent".

Cons

-Have to Search "Torrent" Files using web browser or other Tools unlike in P2P Network Clients.

+ Other RECOMMANDABLE P2P Clients would be the LATEST LimeWire Turbo, eMule, Shareaza and/or Morpheus.

"Attempts to install a adware/virus when running the installer"

March 04, 2006  |  By GrahamCLR

 |  Version: Azureus BitTorrent Client 2.3.0.4

Cons

Virus scanner warned me when I downloaded this file, indicating it contained "a variant of Win32/Adware.Webdir application".

If you do run the installer, it will try and copy the adware/virus .dll into your windows directory, 'DPL.dll' is the one...

free indeed.

"Best Program I have EVER Installed"

January 31, 2006  |  By greensbororules

 |  Version: Azureus BitTorrent Client 2.3.0.4

Pros

1st of all, this is the fastest downloading client you can possibly have. When I had Limewire, i got maybe 28 Kb/s max. BitComet was crap, i got like 10 Kb/s with that, all b/c of my router and the stupid firewall. Now I have azureus, and I have gotten 104 Kilobytes per freaking second!! Do you hear me my friends??? 104 Kbps!!!! All you have to do is follow their instructions on how to open up a port, and you're set! Get ready for insane downloads. Azureus also connects to about every POSSIBLE peer and seed out there, so you're maxing out your downloads and laughing at all the saps with bitcomet who are uploading it to you. Azureus only lets people upload from you if they give you a faster rate of download. So no leechers to worry about. Also you can LIMIT your upload rate and NOT GET PENALIZED. so i can be uploading to people at 30 kbps and be downloading for myself at 100kbps. I think these people could sell this program, and you have got to be out of your mind to get some crap like bitcomet. Bit comet may be easy on the cpu, but it's nothing compared to this. If you've got a pentium 4 or comparable then its no problemo. Think of it like NOS in a car. Yeah, it's a little hard on the engine, but would you rather be safe and go 5 miles an hour or press the turbo button and go 120? Download this program you will not be sorry. If you have pentium 3 i would do it anyway and close evrything else down

Cons

The only drawback to Azureus is the amount of memory it takes and if you have a cheaper computer, then it's gonna take some attention from your cpu. It is worth is though. If you have a pentium 4, you can't even tell the difference. Pentium 3 users can get some other crappy program and take 2 weeks to download the file. or they could shut down everything else on their computer, download this baby, and see how much that processor has got left in her.

I guess the other thing worth mentioning is that if you have a router/firewall, you need to forward a port. That sounds real complicated, and I had no idea how to do it. However, they have a handy link to a port forwarding site in the readme that tells you EXACTLY how to do it. I would highly reccommend port forwarding, b/c it will make your other things like limewire go faster too.

Summary: There's bitcomet, and then there's azureus: BitComet on narcotics

DOWNLOAD IT!!!!
