"Simple to use, but not the best"

May 01, 2007  |  By FELIX COLD

 |  Version: BitTorrent 5.0.7

Pros

Has little unsolvable problems as an official client, is easy to use for beginners & computer dummies.

If you are a kind of user "I don't want to know anything, just push the button!", then it may fit your needs.

Cons

Not so effective in computer resources usage compared to just basic features it has.

Sometimes behaves suspiciously in this view what can be annoying for more advanced users.

For example, just started with empty window (no torrents!) it uses a few times more processor & memory than other Bittorrent client uTorrent (which has to handle tens of active torrents) & what's more - it already uses (constantly!) some of internet banwidth!

You can check it yourself - look in "view-log" in (empty) BitTorrent window - even with no torrents some connecting-records are constantly added to logfile & some bandwidth is used for this empty "communication".

"The Origenal, but Not the Best Torrent"

April 16, 2007  |  By opeca64

 |  Version: BitTorrent 5.0.7

Pros

Torrenting is much better than P2P (I'm happy people are downloading this!)

*This Client is Also Reffered to as "Mainline" for more detailed investigations.

Cons

Not very functional for advanced users. Simple interface doesn't allow for allocation or specifications/features like Super-seeding.

Overall, it's a decent bittorrent client. I would recommend BitTornado(for speed) or Bitlord or Auzureas for overall function/features.

"slow, buggy, and annoying"

April 09, 2007  |  By pjbrooks

 |  Version: BitTorrent 5.0.7

Pros

Install was easy. Worked with network right away. Good concept behind BitTorrent (but bad software).

Cons

Awful software that has gotten worst with newer versions. Download speed is slower than other BT clients. Some torrents outright reject this client. Buggish and does weird things when I run with other programs. There are better BT clients out there!
