"Best P2P program available."

April 18, 2014  |  By mdv88keys

2014-04-18 10:32:42  |  By mdv88keys

 |  Version: Tixati 1.42

Pros

Supports torrent and magnet links.
Supports DHT
Great online support for optimization.
Ad-free

Cons

It's not the most obvious UI.

Summary

Great program! Does exactly what it's supposed to without any mess. You can watch files come in, you can keep track of bandwith and throttle, you can watch keep track of DHT... it's an amazing piece of software that I would recommend to anyone. Trouble with its UI disappears after a few uses and its online support. I have never had a problem using this software after a few minutes of poking around to see what different settings do.

Updated on Apr 18, 2014

Addition -- for me, worked right "out of the box."

"Great software, does what it says on the packet."

March 01, 2014  |  By thejohnscott

2014-03-01 15:30:18  |  By thejohnscott

 |  Version: Tixati 1.96

Pros

Ad free
Junk free
Fast
Highly configurable
Great filters

Cons

Took me 10 minutes to figure out

Summary

I used Bittorrent for years, then they started dumping junk in my bandwidth and feeding me ads, moved to uTorrent for a couple of years, which after an update started doing the same thing... So I searched for a better application. Tixati is a great client, fast and displays accurate information, rather than just guesses and junk windows, bloatware and adware. I find it does exactly what I need, downloads torrents to the folders that I want and restricts allows access/bandwidth when and where I want.
For those who list the blocky user interface as a con, well that's just very short sighted. It's not taking up system resources with graphics that are completely unnecessary, it is in fact a pro. It's not a video game after all.

"Piece of Crap."

December 18, 2013  |  By Constipated02

2013-12-18 20:37:08  |  By Constipated02

 |  Version: Tixati 1.42

Pros

-No viruses, malwares, trackers or horses as I could see.
-Usable on Linux... to a degree
-No ads... again, to a degree
-No more that I can see

Cons

-Horrible UI
-Complex interface, use if you are ADVANCED
-Double the time of uTorrent download (on same torrent)
-VERY large download
-Hard to adjust to (coming from another torrent software)
-For me, takes longer to load and much more start-up impact
-Uses a hell-a lot of CPU, effectively slowing your computer down to ****. No background processes for you! :(

Summary

No. Just, no. It's just a piece of crap. I put a a torrent (an episode of South Park) on Tixati, stop-watched at 16:09 minutes. uTorrent, 8:04. I can't play Deus Ex or anything else pretty much while this is downloading in the background, it practically makes my computer **** itself. I felt the heater on my computer, and I got burnt (running Alienware 14 laptop)! Best thing to do with this is hit Z or R twice and barrel roll the **** out of here. This torrent software really isn't worth the download, as the freaking download is HUGE! About.com featured it as the 'second best torrent software', but they openly admitted that they got paid for that, and About.com is a **** site in itself. Advice? DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS. You have no excuse not to use Transmission, Vuze, uTorrent or ANYTHING else than to use this.

1.5 stars. This is a piece of crap.

"Just moved from uTorrent. Improvement, esp in speed."

May 16, 2013  |  By jkirk1626

2013-05-16 12:08:17  |  By jkirk1626

 |  Version: Tixati 1.95

Pros

Fast, clean. No crapware hidden. Your bandwidth isn't wasted on ads and shady shenanigans running in the background that slow your system, data flow, and your actual download. Download. You remember: the actual reason you got a torrent and magnet client to begin with?

Cons

The interface is slightly less polished than uTorrent but it is as easy to use in my opinion. uTorrent has hotkey shortcuts that Tixati lacks. Tixati requires a lot of clicks where uTorrent would auto-fill. Cumulatively, Tixati's speed will more than compensate contrasted with uTorrent. Still, though, that's room for improvement. Pulling in magnet link meta data n better than uTorrent, though the actual download is much faster.

Summary

Tixati's speeds are in the 500 kb per second range, regularly running into the 600s. With uTorrent, reaching into the 300s briefly was impressive. This was testing the same content from the same source, on the same connection. That's because uTorrent uses your data to pump in crap ads instead of delivering your content.

The Pros of Tixati are the pros uTorrent used to have and what made uTorrent to famous. uTorrent dumped those good traits long ago to become the bloated not-to-be-completely-trusted app it's become.

Tixati seem to be clean, mean and fast.
