    "Horrible Product, full off bloatware and spyware now"

    September 8, 2012  |   By JoeDoe1980

    Version: BitTorrent 7.6.1

    Pros

    none in new version

    Cons

    Installs toolbars and other programs without your knowledge

    There is no option to NOT install these items (Antivirus quarantined)
    I downloaded the installer directly from bittorent.com so it was not contaminated from a 3rd party

    Uninstalled toolbar and still have problems

    Summary

    This used to be the BEST bittorent on the market hands down BUT now it is the WORST. I hate programs that install software without the option to NOT install it. If you install this do so at your own risk!
    Horrible, Horrible, Horrible!

    "DO NOT UPGRADE"

    May 19, 2012  |   By DrainBlut

    Version: BitTorrent 7.6.1

    Pros

    NONE.
    GET 7.2.1 INSTEAD!

    Cons

    -Horrible UI
    -Countless problems including:
    --Disc Cache overload bug
    --Stuck at "Checked" bug
    --"This program is not responding"

    Summary

    Cnet felt the need to email me asking me to "review" the newest version of Bittorrent, so here it is. The new version(And all 7.6.x) is utter garbage. Assuming you can even get them to work, they are horribly inconvenient to use. The great UI from 7.2 was stripped out in favor of this new trash UI, with no ability to customize or use a classic UI. If you want a STABLE and CONVENIENT version of BT, go get 7.2.1. I downgraded to this version and it solved all my problems that were caused DIRECTLY by upgrading. It is the last version that has a good UI... AND IT ACTUALLY WORKS.

    "NEW UPGRADE TO 7.6.1 DO NOT DO IT"

    May 12, 2012  |   By tempestrogue

    Version: BitTorrent 7.6.1

    Pros

    None right now as the new version just keeps NRing

    Cons

    This new updated version of Bittorrent keeps going to "Not Responding" at least on my Windows 7 computer - I wish I had never chosen to "update".

    If you haven't updated as of May 2012 - don't right now

    Both BitTorrent Stable (7.6.1 build 27214) and BitTorrent Stable (7.6.1 build 27208) are now doing this

    Summary

    DON'T UPGRADE IF YOU HAVEN'T IN MAY 2012 - WAIT A BIT LONGER

    "WARNING- Do NOT "upgrade" to Bittorrent 7.6.1!!!!!"

    May 3, 2012  |   By NightOwl2112

    Version: BitTorrent 7.6.1

    Pros

    NO pros- none!!!

    Cons

    BitTorrent 7.6.1 has a totally different user interface which I don't like and when I went on their forums page to try to get help to download the previous version that actually works some "administrator" (ooooooooo, cool!) locked me out of the thread and said "we don't assist with previous versions!".
    So, if you have the older version DO NOT "UPGRADE" TO 7.6.1 which bittorrent sent to me on May,3, 2012- it sucks ! ...and there is no way to revert back!!!

    Summary

    IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER VERSION THAT WORKS - DON'T "UPGRADE"!!!!!!

    "It Downloads Torrents"

    February 29, 2012  |   By cycle_mycle

    Version: BitTorrent 7.6.1

    Pros

    Good at downloading

    Cons

    Keeps changing the name of the folders that I want to download to.

    Summary

    I found out how to change the view to be able to rename the download location, but it keeps wanting to download to a folder that has the name of the file. The reason why I want to change the names is because most names are very long in order to describe accurately the file and who uploaded it - something that become unnecessary after I download the torrent file. So I say it needs a little more work before it goes prime-time. Other than that it's always been good software for me - I've been a user since 4.0...
