"A plauge on the Bittorrent Community"

September 18, 2005  |  By ramsj900

 |  Version: BitComet 0.57

Pros

Idiot proof, for beginners

good for popular files, with large swarms (more than 50+ peers)

Cons

In small swarms (less than 25-50 peers) this client acts agressively to manipulate the 'most valuable pieces', which is good for the particular downloader, but prevents others in the swarm from completing the file. All non-Bitcomet clients will hang at 97% to 99.9% completed for hours, days, even weeks until enough non-bitcomet seeds offer the file pieces that the Bitcomet client hoarded (especially if the Bitcomet user doesn't seed for any length of time. One of the hallmarks of a newbie/Bitcomet user). As a result many webmasters, site admins, sysop's or other knowledge participants actively block the Bitcomet users that vist their sites.

If you use Bitcomet you will trade speed on some files for being locked out of others. If you must use this client stay out of samll swarms and definetly seed for twice the time you leeched. Also manipulating your seeding ratio doesn't fool many other BT clients because you can only pose so long until the numbers just don't add up. Think about jerky! Try either the original bittorrent client for beginners or Azureus for advanced control (offers speedy dloads & tons of add-ins, but is Java and therefore a resource hog)

Pros

Fast connection, very user friendly easy to use, clean interface, dont need to know much about torrents in depth to use this program + it has a list of torrent sites mentioned where u can search for files

Cons

"it`s good"

September 10, 2005  |  By hans van geel

 |  Version: BitComet 0.57

Pros

it`s easy to use and does the job

it sometimes crashes at top uploadspeed.

If you do that it`s stable.
