Editors' Review

There's an abundance of peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing clients these days, each boasting a combination of features designed to distinguish itself by making the bit torrent downloading experience easier or more complex, depending on how much control each user needs. Goforshare's Torrent Monster takes the more complex approach, offering a plethora of features and settings that give users an unusual degree of power and control over the searching and downloading processes on Gnutella, the largest P2P network. Its connection optimizer matches your download speed to your Internet connection bandwidth. Torrent Monster also has a sophisticated library manager and features like file previewing, dynamic uploading, and magnet links to facilitate sharing Web pages and documents.

Torrent Monster's main interface and its various settings pages are well rendered in the basic gray of the classic Windows application, favoring e-mail clients in style and execution. Where Torrent Monster shines is in the many ways you can configure it and the unusual and helpful way it displays data, such as its tabbed Views. The Swarm and Pieces views offer helpful graphical depictions, and the aptly named Info View is crowded with significant data. There are Peers, Files, and Options views, and a General View to oversee them. It's a lot, but there's a good Help file.

Torrent Monster is freeware. It works in all versions of Windows from 95 to 7; it leaves program folders behind after it's uninstalled. It's a powerful and sophisticated Gnutella client for bit torrent users who need a bit more.

"Would not install"

December 30, 2013  |  By yakc130

2013-12-30 04:46:37  |  By yakc130

 |  Version: Torrent Monster 3.7

Pros

None. It did not install.

Cons

Kept telling me I didn't have Java installed even after a fresh reinstall and updates. Would not go beyond telling me that I didn't have Java. It did download a bunch of garbage onto my computer even at this stage.

"Adds extras I don't want"

September 11, 2012  |  By PomDave

2012-09-11 00:34:36  |  By PomDave

 |  Version: Torrent Monster 3.1

Pros

Don't know - I stopped the download before it added stuff I didn't want.

Cons

Will only load if you allow it to also load a crappy toolbar. Downloading a toolbar seems standard for all free software these days - BUT the difference here is that you can't opt out. It pretends that you have an option but will not allow you to uncheck the box that adds the toolbar.

Summary

Sneaky additions not to my liking.

Sometimes you get confuse, but as long as you keep it basic it's going to work fine

"A difficult program to tell about."

June 01, 2009  |  By poulstaun

2009-06-01 13:40:54  |  By poulstaun

 |  Version: Torrent Monster 1.3

Pros

Works well it has some connection with Azureus.
But no search engine as I believe Azureus had
Can not tell if its fast or is not.

Cons

It has 3 settings (among a lot others) for beginners, intermediate and advanced.
So maybe if You know "things" that I dont it could work better.
I only stayed at beginners
So to me there is to many settings that can be done

Summary

It functions and goes well--
