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The Advanced tab has been replaced by My Library.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.

"what else can I say"

July 28, 2010  |  By Mari6429

 |  Version: Vuze 4.4.0.4

Pros

The download the easy, didn't take long to figure out the program

Cons

if you want to update and pay the $24.00 you might want to reconsider. I paid for and downloaded but don't see the change. I seems to be a waste, I advise agent it. Or download at your own risk.

Summary

Its a good download to use for free

"Awesome Program"

July 26, 2010  |  By kc0zvr

 |  Version: Vuze 4.4.0.4

Pros

Vuze works like a dream. I would say it is one of the easiest and best P2P software out

Cons

None so far

Summary

Vuze, is very easy to install and doesn't use a lot of system resources. It's smooth and error free ( so far) I have only been using it a few days, but I am glad I downloaded it. I haven't found any nag screens ( which is great) and it finds the files I want. Definetly get this program

"Best torrent manager."

July 14, 2010  |  By joestrouth

 |  Version: Vuze 4.4.0.4

Pros

Simple and advanced views, manage your torrents from any browser including mobile using the Web Remote, FREE, extraordinarily advanced settings for ports and such allowing you to manually set up just about anything, media device sharing for 360

Cons

Not a whole lot that I can think of. The included search defaults aren't so great. I personally don't use btjunkie and some of the others, but you can add others including the pirate bay and even demonoid and isohunt.

Summary

Absolutely great program. Does everything you can wish for and more. Even does what uTorrent has now put in beta, via its web remote. Quality program. You will NOT be disappointed.

"One of the best P2P file sharing tools out there."

July 09, 2010  |  By swisstika

 |  Version: Vuze 4.4.0.4

Pros

Combines the best of bitcomet and utorrent.

Cons

Annoying Vuze plus activation.... this **** should be free.

Summary

Rich features such as the one where it saves the IP of peers before it exits so it can automatically reconnect faster upon next restart.

"Decent P2P Network"

June 25, 2010  |  By DeciDreamer

 |  Version: Vuze 4.4.0.4

Pros

Easy to understand and use. Generally fast download time. Never experienced a virus problem in my six months of use.

Cons

Sometimes it is quite slow to start a download, but once it starts, it generally takes under 15 minutes for a 100MB file. (which is fast by Australian standards!! hahaha.)

Summary

TO ALL THOSE WANTING "SINGLE" SONGS: you can go to any torrent site (safe ones, of course) and download single songs through Vuze, if you didn't already know. ThePirateBay is a good source.

"Software installer won't load properly."

June 21, 2010  |  By psiryan

 |  Version: Vuze 4.4.0.4

Pros

I haven't been able to use the software to experience any pros.

Cons

The software installer unpacks just fine as far as I can tell, but the install shield doesn't load correctly so while I see the program running in the task bar, the window, which should be visible on the screen, isn't there. All I can do is close it.

Summary

One star for empty promises. I have been trying to install this software for 2 days now. The installer starts unpack, then starts up but there is no window or anything to complete the installation. I'm running it on Windows 7 64 Ultimate with 4GB ram and 1TB hard disk space; I see little reason for this application to behave as it is.
