Editors' Review

+

Still not for the faint of heart, this torrent utility is one of the easiest to use. The uTorrent executable adds a directory and some option information to your PC, but it is still small enough to run off an old USB key.

The memory footprint for uTorrent is very small, and system resources are barely touched. Our testers found that IP phones were difficult to use with a torrent, but uTorrent's simple button interface makes it easy to pause downloading.

The most difficult aspect of using a torrent client is finding the torrents, but included are both a torrent search bar that links to MiniNova and a handy RSS feed download function. Subscribe to select feeds, and uTorrent automatically downloads files as they publish. Adding, starting, pausing, and listing torrents takes merely a click or two each. A speed guide helps you test your ports and adjust system settings for optimal performance.

This is the first version since uTorrent was bought by BitTorrent, and there are some tried-and-true BitTorrent options available, such as Local Peer Discovery and DHT Network. uTorrent isn't overwhelmed with bells and whistles, but it includes enough features to make it the torrent program of choice for novices, intermediate, and advanced users.

"just as good as azureus or bitcomet"

December 26, 2007  |  By shaghion

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.7.5

Pros

but, unlike azureus or bitcomet or anyother BT client that's out there, this programme will not slow down your computer. It also alows you to download torrents at whatever speed yor bandwith suports

Cons

just like any other BT client out there, it will make your web surfing days a pain if you have it turned one while your surfing the net (only if you have a slower connection; I recently transferred to another ISP and now a have a 3 Mbps connection and when utorrent runnig it doesn't have a bad influence on my browser).

So don't download some fancy programme like azureus or bitcomet just because you like the icons better. The only thing they do better is require more memory to run properly and more memory to install

"Good, but I like Azureus better"

December 21, 2007  |  By gasaulnier

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.7.5

Pros

Speeds comparable to Azureus. Fairly easy to use.

Cons

Interface not as good as Azureus. I've used both, but have always gone back to Azureus - it seems easier to use and has a better interface.

"simple, fast, low overhead"

December 13, 2007  |  By slappie

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.7.5

Pros

utorrent has the smallest memory and disk footprint of any bit torrent client. While it's exactly the same speed as all other un-throttled clients, I like that it uses less resources than others.
