"effective piece of software"

March 15, 2005  |  By komkat

 |  Version: BitTorrent 3.4.2

Pros

BitTorrent 3.4.2 is a very useful yet simple program to download torrent files. However, If you are thinking of getting this version, dont, as you should get bittorrent version 4 instead. It has more options and a better interface. There is also no spyware or adware that is bundled with this software. Overall a fantastic piece of software

Cons

No search option for files, however, you can go to bittorrent search engine sites like novatina.com to find the files you want.

"This is a great program, with a lot of software to download but unknown upload"

March 10, 2005  |  By Nightwolf1983

 |  Version: BitTorrent 3.4.2

Pros

Had an huge selection of files to download, it's fast depending on the peers of you are downloading.

Cons

You don't control what are you sharing to others, it's a program without any options, you can share your personal files to others without knowing.

"No frills, easy to use but no options"

February 06, 2005  |  By bill15129

 |  Version: BitTorrent 3.4.2

Pros

Very simple design yet elegent in concept. It works.

Cons

No options. Actual performance will be based on very complex factors. Very little documentation. Will require specific settings (probably manual) on most firewalls. It gives very few statistics about inbound and outbound connections.

"Download it NOW!"

December 27, 2004

 |  Version: BitTorrent 3.4.2

Summary

At first i hesitated about downloading this product but eventually it caught up with me.It's great!I thought it will be difficult and everything will take too long blah blah..It's easier that 1,2,3! You go to a site,find what you're looking for,save it on any file(Or create a new file to save your Torrent downloads on).Open this file,click on your saved target and download! It's simple and you can't complain about not finding what you're looking for because honestly,if you don't find it with Torrent you certainly won't find it with any p2p program out there.
I found a series that i couldnt even find on dvd or ebay! Yes,Torrent is that good.
I suppose a fast internet connection makes the process more bearable,but even if you have a slow connection you can always leave the downloads for when you are asleep or away from the computer.

"I prefer Azureus!"

December 08, 2004

 |  Version: BitTorrent 3.4.2

Summary

Pro: small installer, does the job
Cons: no GUI for connection settings (ports, upload/download bandwidth), no priority options, not seeding-friendly, hard to manage downloads, does not show who you download from. Conclusion: Azureus solve the cons here.

"Great program-If you are not ignorant"

December 08, 2004

 |  Version: BitTorrent 3.4.2

Summary

Of all the bad reviews I read of this program, it is because people don't know what they are doing. It kills me how ignorant the bad reviews are. It is the ONLY way to download files as of now.

"Bit Tornado and Azureus are much better!"

December 08, 2004

 |  Version: BitTorrent 3.4.2

Summary

Bit Torrent is an older program, which has been superseded by Bit Tornado, Azureus and A.B.C. The technology and use of Bittorrent is great, but this Bittorrent program lacks a lot of up-to-date programming. Bit Tornado is my personal favorite!
