Editors' Review

+

For a torrent-downloading app, Azureus is chock-a-block full of features that set it apart from the rest of the pack.

From XML torrent options to IP filters, firewall tests to UPnP plug-ins, Azureus leads the way in making the torrent experience as customizable as possible. When you install the program, it gives you three levels of option settings, for beginner, intermediate, and advanced controls. There's a configuration wizard, an easy-to-use torrent maker, and dozens of ways to set your statistics logs so you can track download speed and performance.

The layout could benefit from larger buttons. Nevertheless, it's uncluttered and the icons are straightforward--none of those unhelpful "sad face" icons to stop the torrent. In the past, the Java architecture has been a fatal flaw, with Azureus porking out and consuming resources as if they were pies in an eating contest. It's still a major processor drain, but the latest version isn't anywhere near as bad as earlier ones have been, and we recommend this app to advanced users.

"The Best Torrent Client I've Ever Used"

July 12, 2007  |  By leftfootleashed

 |  Version: Azureus 2.5.0.4

Pros

Extremely powerful client - huge range of options and information about current torrents - but simple enough to use on a day-to-day basis.

Cons

Could be slightly confusing for beginners - during the initial configuration wizard I was modest and chose "Intermediate" over "Advanced," but then downgraded to "Beginner" and was still a bit confused by some of the things it was telling me!

"no doubt the best"

June 29, 2007  |  By pokesmot

 |  Version: Azureus 2.5.0.4

Pros

azureus 2.5 is hands down the best torrent client i've tried. i've stuck with it for awhile now because it is super easy to use. chock full of features, yet not overwelmingly so. with the newer 3.0 version, i've started using available plugins. many available plugins are pretty useless, however many enhance this already awesome client. also, with the new version comes a brand new main window that links you to free videos, tv shows, indie films, trailers, and so on.

Cons

can be very memory and system heavy if you don't set its options correctly. but once you've done so it runs great.

"Good client"

May 27, 2007  |  By Tektonics

 |  Version: Azureus 2.5.0.4

Pros

This is a pretty good torrent client compared to the rest of them. It has fairly good download speeds and a descent interface. The newest version has a search client called Vuze built right in to the program.

Cons

It seems to really suck a lot of performance out of your internet connection while it's downloading, but it's not a very big deal considering I start downloads before I go to bed. The newest version is a little heavier on resources.
