"More than you could ask for"

February 06, 2014  |  By Sampson5115

 |  Version: BitTorrent 7.8.2

Pros

FREE
Download all sorts of content for personal viewing or to upload to a website.

Cons

Occasionally gives you a virus.

Summary

If you know how to restore your computer to the day before, then you should definitely get this software. I've only gotten one virus, but it was a bad one. However, I just rolled my PC back to the day before and it was fine. This has saved me literally thousands of bucks on games, music, and tv episodes. It's also given me content for my website! Yay!

"CAUTION: Bittorrent loaded with malware!"

October 23, 2013  |  By NachoMan007

 |  Version: BitTorrent 7.8.2

Pros

works well, except for Conduit malware that is a serious pain in the A** to get rid of. What were they thinking? Evidently CNET hasn't scanned Bittorrent in awhile else Bitorrent would certainly fail. I would seriously avoid this otherwise good app until Conduit is removed from the install package.

Cons

Contains Conduit malware. A royal pain to remove from your system.

"never had a problem"

September 28, 2013  |  By tombradbury

 |  Version: BitTorrent 7.8.1

Pros

Easy to install and easy to use.

Cons

Can't think of any.

Summary

I think the previous commenter either works for or wrote another program similar to BitTorrent and is just trying to sway people away from BitTorrent or didn't know what they were doing and is just pissed off.
I've been using BitTorrent for several years and never had a problem with the program. It's easy to install and easy to use and unless they've changed it drastically over the past year or so, there's no BS, just a simple program that does it's job.

"Works great."

May 11, 2013  |  By gwetrwevsdf

 |  Version: BitTorrent 7.8

Pros

This is a great client that isn't heavy on system resources. My PC is a bit low on system resources, so this works great. I used to use Vuze , but I almost couldn't do anything else while it was running because it was too heavy for my PC. This is not the case with BitTorrent. I can easily multitask while this is running.

Secondly, it almost maxes out my connection without tweaking any of the settings, downloading at the highest speeds possible for healthy torrents (although I should say my connection is on the slower side)

I have only changed two settings on it:

- I put a limit to upload bandwidth (the default is 0 = unlimited) [If you have a fast upload and purely unlimited connection, you should just leave it at 0)

- I changed the location of my downloads (the default was a place in C drive , but my drive is short of space)

Basically, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you are unsatisfied with its performance, then you could tweak connectivity settings and check.

Cons

None, really. However pay attention when you install it because it tries to install a toolbar and a couple of other things. If you do not want those, then pay attention, read closely and uncheck/ deselect those items.

I would not call this as one of the 'cons' though because like many other free softwares it tries to install other things on your PC. But,you do have an option to deselect them.

Summary

As I mentioned , great client. An alternative (similar) to it is Utorrent, which is provided by the same company.
