Editors' Review

Formerly the feature-rich Azureus, Vuze takes Azureus' BitTorrent foundation and builds on top of it a network for video discovery and user-created video publishing tied together by social networking.

From XML torrent options to IP filters, firewall tests to UPnP plug-ins to baked-in social networking, Vuze isn't breaking new ground--the original BitTorrent client has gone this path, too--but it is doing it in an innovative and attractive way. When you install the program, you're faced with an interface that will be instantly familiar to iTunes users. In providing a general overview of their torrents and media playback controls, the new layout emphasizes user-initiated searches.

The Advanced tab has been replaced by My Library. The old Azureus is now completely gone, but because of the demands of users, Vuze 4.0 is much closer to the intent of its progenitor than Vuze 3.1 was. A simple, three-step guide that launches when you start Vuze helps you get acclimatized to the new Vuze. There's still work to be done: memory usage is up around 100MB, and although you can set up private trackers, you can't customize the search box. People new to torrenting or only interested in sharing media files might appreciate this visually active approach.

"Yeah you get what you want in the end"

August 26, 2009  |  By johnterrynet

 |  Version: Vuze 4.2.0.4

Pros

Bright well set out gui and wicked sister view large search boxes - I like a lot. Plugins are plentiful and I will look forward to playing in my vuze in future.

Cons

A tad too much going on in the ad dep't. Straight to the chase from a search is cup o tea for me. Learning curve perhaps a con, for the likes of me, maybe due

Summary

Vuze is not too bad for the torrent newbie as an all in one desktop download long lost cousin to duke Hardy of hazard.
