Editors' Review

+

Taking a slightly different approach to solving the multimedia lover's dilemma of how best to download torrents is BitComet, which uses an interface heavily cribbed from Windows Explorer--with a dose or two from the basic BitTorrent template--to create something instantly recognizable to the user.

There's a familiar tree of features on the left, including links to torrent-aggregating Web sites and several promotional offers. The top of the app has big buttons with familiar icons, the center window shows the files being downloaded, and the bottom pane has tracker and peer info. The pane on the right rounds out the layout, with a torrent search feature and advertising. Among the usual features, BitComet offers chat capabilities, the ability to bookmark your favorite sites, a toolbar for Internet Explorer 7, and a context menu for Firefox 2.

While the app held its own against better-known competitors in terms of speed and handling multiple torrents, we found the ubiquitous advertisements to be annoying compared to the competition's ad-free environs. Overall, we think BitComet is worth trying and could become a major torrent app in the future.

March 11, 2014  |  By arcnet29

 |  Version: BitComet 1.37

Pros

Fast and multiple downloads, u can download almost any video streaming from any site, (Need to integrate with Firefox or install comet bird). Top notch download speed moreover it automatically resumes the download. Torrent download is also good, and has Godspeed compared to other p2p softwares. Moreover u can create an account and gain points and other stuff.

Cons

Only in some cases while downloading .exe files it was not able to download properly.

Summary

I have been using it for 3 years now and is probably the best download manager, torrent downloader, video downloader, and I haven't faced much problem with this.

"Loosing Its Touch..."

March 15, 2012  |  By AllenKatEMail.com

 |  Version: BitComet 1.31

Pros

Good download uplink performance like uTorrent software and even BitTorrent.

Cons

Worst negative connection feedback when using this software, slow your entire internet connection down.

Sometimes came to a complete stop when using BitTorrent downloading some large software, also from time to time it is even worse, you cannot go online at all, may people experiance this type of issue, no matter how you adjust the setting, result is the same...

Summary

Let go of BitComet, go hug the new and improved uTorrent.

Check the rating and the total downloads from last week statistic, you will see more and more people moving from bitComet to uTorrent...

"Simply Awesome"

March 03, 2012  |  By Sealdrenxia

 |  Version: BitComet 1.31

Pros

The Long Term Seeding is a great feature for BitComet plus with the leveling system and VIP is quite cool. The more you level up by signing up and uploading, the more the speed of your download goes up ^_^ it's very cool. Unlike utorrent, you have to go to files then untick those unneeded files, but with bitComet before you download, you can choose your files you want to download ^_^ awesome

Cons

Well the interface is not awesome >.> It will be awesome if it's an eye candy

Summary

Make more improvement in the interface also ^_^
