"Great."

October 21, 2006  |  By Eternals

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.5 build 437

Pros

This program uses up very little resources while running. It uses about 8mB of RAM while running. Also, I have achieved much faster and higher download speeds with uTorrent than with BitComet. The client is also very easy to customize. I found everything that I had used in BitComet packed into uTorrent. The program also has a clean, user-friendly interface. I had no problems at all finding where everything was when I first used this client.

Cons

The only con with uTorrent is that it can not block IP's on the list of computers connected to you. Several times I have seen 'fake' clients connect to my computer, and uTorrent doesn't have the option of banning an IP, so basically I can't stop them from connecting to me.

"Used others like bitcomet and Azureus. This is the best"

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.5 build 437

Pros

Show torrents in details. When time to shut down it does in a flash. The others, you wait and twiddle your thumbs.

Cons

IP should not be shown esp the country flag

"First Impressions Aren't Everything"

October 10, 2006  |  By osirisgothra

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.5 build 437

Pros

NOTE 1.6 IS OUT NOW (but not on this site?)

go to the utorrent homepage!

- Contains all the features you need without the bloat of things that are not needed or wanted

- Small, Efficient Download, and Install Process.

- Works well right out of the box, even helps with getting port forwarding working right before doing the setup.

- Seems to run less resources than a few other clients I've tried

- Lots of other little things i like about it

Cons

Some compat. issues with certain skins (but doesnt that apply to most win apps?) so not really the program's fault. Otherwise, I have to recommend all those who tried earlier versions and didnt like it (even 1.5) to try it again. I gave it a second chance after it had exhibited very poor performance in 1.5, and just gave it a shot-in-the-dark again, and it works alot better now (and no i didnt change hardware/software configuration in any way since then) So I say to those in doubt, give it another try!

"Simple, ckean and the best"

September 28, 2006  |  By dragonquest

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.5 build 437

Pros

The biggest pro - its size. I mean, its less than 200K, what else can I say. Plus it doesn't require an installer. The interface is nice without being overkill. The options are pretty good, and the application as a whole is pretty flexible.

Cons

I've heard of other people achieving higher speeds with clients like Bitcomet, though I haven't run the two side by side to compare.
