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.

I recommend downloading this program, it's fast, easy and convenient.

"Non working garbage."

December 27, 2010  |  By johndoe000069

 |  Version: BitComet 1.25

Pros

There are no pros as this joke of a program DOES NOT WORK!!!

Cons

Nothing on this crappy piece of software works. It was review this software is easy. Bull. Nothing works as I can't get it to download anything. You would think if you hit the movie button it would list the movies for download. Waste of time.

Summary

This piece of software if you can call it that is worthless. It DOES NOTHING. You hit the movies button and nothing happens. You hit one of the torrents and nothing happens. You try to get help and select bitcomet help and nothing happens. Why would cnet say this piece of garbage of software is EASY? IT DOES NOT WORK. PERIOD!!!

"Not bad, lots of programs but be careful"

December 25, 2010  |  By Pks297333

 |  Version: BitComet 1.25

Pros

Most downloads happen quick but alot will come from 'Pirate Bay' (another torrent site) and those you will have problems with virus infections.

Cons

See above.

Summary

Not bad for a download or two, but I would reccomend scanning the downloads to keep your computer safe!

"More like 4.5 outta 5 but pretty good"

December 20, 2010  |  By shaunk37

 |  Version: BitComet 1.25

Pros

Torrents download fast, and signing up for the BitComet ID does (to some extent) boost download speeds. Like it better than Vuze. Clean interface that looks and feels light but sturdy.

Cons

None as of yet.

Summary

Conclusion:
I've tried out torrent clients from BitTorrent, Vuze, to more subtle ones like Bitpump and Deluge. BitComet is my favorite. Quick and accelerated downloads are the biggest pro in this software and it's definitely one of the best around. :)
