What's Your Favorite BitTorrent Client?

What's Your Favorite BitTorrent Client?

Added: Sunday, December 6th, 2009
Category: About Torrents > Seeding Back
Tags:p2p, BitTorrent, utorrent, bitcomet, extratorrent.com, vuze, Client, bittorrent client, thunder, libtorrent, transmission, flashget
There are many popular BitTorrent Clients around the world. A huge myth for the past year, is that uTorrent was the most used BitTorrent Client in the world. That has now been proven to be wrong, with the Chinese "Xunlei" (codename: Thunder) torrent client claiming the throne as the most used torrent client in the world.

Torrent Client

Many of you have your favorites, and some prefer one client to another. From uTorrent, to the original BitTorrent, to BitComet, to Vuze/Azureus, to Transmission, to libtorrent, to KTorrent, to RTorrent, to BitTornado, to Mainline, to BitSpirit, to TuoTu, to FlashGet, to BitTyrant, there are many options available.
Most Used Clients

I'd just like to hear from the community, as to what torrent clients you prefer. If you have a favorite, what makes it stand out from the rest? Is it the "name" that just stands out? Does it offer more features? Why is it you choose your favorite torrent client, above the others?

I just think it's interesting to hear from the community about their personal favorites, and why they enjoy them. Feel free everyone, to post direct links to download a torrent client you recommend, in the comments area below this article!

SnakeyB avatarI am using uTorrent 1.8.4 for the same reason as Z0R4N. I got used to it and can zip my way around it as apposed to learning something new. Years ago I was on ARES and had the players etc. uTorrent is a nice small application with easy to use controls.

paprika128 avataruTorrent here too (1.8.4) It was the first one I tried and found it so easy to use that I never felt a need to explore any of others available.
I've had absolutely no probs with it, runs smoothly and dead simple to use (I'm not much of a wiz with technical stuff), dl and ul speeds very high so I must be doing something right. :)

No avatarI'm currently running Bittorrent 6.2 and have been using BT for some time. It was the first client a buddy of mine got me to download so I have stuck with it. I like Transmission but am not running a Linux box so back to BT 6.2. I have tried others such as Azureus but it reminded me of iTunes. I want something lightweight with no frills. Overall I'd say I use BT 6.2 because it's what I know and I don't feel like learning a new client. I liked reading this post and all the responses... ET ROCKS!

Yeastful_Biscuit avatarI started with Azureus but switched to BitTorrent, and noticed a major performance increase. I guess due to how light weight it is. So I am happy and have stuck with it since (about two years now). I tried uTorrent and noticed that the GUI and options are the exact same as BitTorrent, only with a very slight look difference. So whats the difference between the two?

Farquardt avatarStarted out with BitTorrent then BitComet. They were just such resource hogs so somebody suggested uTorrent. Small file, low resource needs and fairly intuitive. Now, a couple of years later, it just sits there working for me. There may be better products but it would take a really significant improvement to get me to switch. I've got better things to do than look for a 2 or 3% improvement.

Robo29 avatarI started off using Shadow's Experimental bittornado, then I tried Azureus, followed by Deluge and also BitComet before finally settling on uTorrent 1.8.4 because it's the fastest to load, the easiest to use and I get the best speeds with it.

YoGi avatarim with xxxOBSCENExxx on this one. I use Utorrent 1.6 .. Vuze and Utorrent1.8.something and i find Utorrent1.6 to be best because like he says it uses the least amount of system resources. problem i have with vuze is that if im d/ling i cant surf the net. the computer with Utorrent1.6 is smooth even if i d/ling at 1.5mbps . Utorrent is easy to use, Vuze needs some adjustments ... when i was a newbie tried the other ones bitlord, mainline bitcomet etc, and always ended up d/ling infected files and then battling trojans... so now me stick to the simple stuff .... hmmm the chinese one, Xunlei , is there an english version? my chinese is rather bad nowadays!! :) thanks xxxOBSCENExxx another nice article :)

No avatar@ wiredsauce, two things, make sure you're not using the newer releases of uTorrent, (anti-leech code) and make sure you have ports forwarded. uTorrent is excellent if you forward ports :D

Rodster avatarAlways used Azureus and Vuze and my machine is primarily used for internet and Media Server and not gaming so "system hogging" is no issue for me.

The PLUS side about Vuze for me is the built in "Media Server" I use for streaming to my XBox and Playstation, so no need for additional media server software.

Nice article....Thanks....

wiredsauce avatar@ OBSCENE - Yeah I think that's my problem. Using the newest release of utorrent, and I am having issues with port forwarding as the downloads are going very slow for me (18.5kb/s on a 4MB down connection). Not connecting to seeders etc, it's a PITA. I tried the 1.6 version of utorrent but found there is no bandwidth allocation settings, which I need. Is there a next version up from 1.6 that has that feature? I will look into the port forwarding issue, but it's strange because this has just up and happened a few weeks ago without a change to anything in my network or ISP.

Boomer avatarIt's interesting that Xunlei can rule when many in the Western world haven't even heard of it.

It's µTorrent for me mostly, I've loved it since 2006 at least. On Super Ubuntu I use Transmission, it's their default Torrent program, and it's fairly nice, except if there are lots of torrents in the list, then it can be hard to scroll the list and keep an eye on them all. Ktorrent for Linux looks like µTorrent, but isn't really a clone, it does things differently.

YoGi avatar@ DarkmanX @ xxxOBSCENExxx "@ FLMH, one of the BIGGEST downfalls of Vuze, is it really kills your system resources. I avoid it like the plague for that reason. I need my resources all the time :D"

could you please explain?

What xxxOBSCENExxx means is that when vuze is running it consumes a lot of virtual memory thus making the execution of other programs a hassle. plus not only that, like i have said before, with vuze running surfin the net is really slow if not completely dead. but as the saying goes, if you happy with it stick with it! if you got no issues with Vuze then just continue using it! :)
knowing xxxOBSCENExxx's busy schedule thought i would reply
hope that helped!

wiredsauce avatar@PsYcHaYoGi - No it doesn't help the downloads so I guess it lays in a port forwarding issue. Now I just need to find out the password to the router on the network I am having trouble with. I use 2 different networks throughout the day, as they are in different places. Thanks for the help PsYcHaYoGi!

No avatar@ wiredsauce, http://portforward.com typically the pass is either the word "admin", "blank", "password", or "pass". Typically the router IP is or effectively within that range. Check portforward, and see if your model is located there.

No avatarEveryone has their own personal preferences :) I still suggest that uTorrent 1.6 is the best for Windows, Deluge is the best for Linux/Unix OS's, and Transmission for the Apple/Mac :D

rocka avatarI've been using Bitlord for the past few years thinking it was one of the more popular clients. But after reading this I now know I'm in the minority (a happy minority non the less). Never had any problems and very reliable.

YoGi avataryeah @ wiredsauce .. no worries mate, read xxxOBSCENExxx's post above, it probably is a port forwarding issue. and like he said normally its >user< admin and >password< admin or any of the other examples... but u can go to portforward.com or even google model name and look through if its not listed on portforward

regarding the router, you need a router to split your internet connection and share it around the house. cheers mate!

SiLvErDuSt avatarPersonal- UTorrent 1.6 and on occasion the old proper Bit comet
On my seedboxes,U Torrent 1.6,R Torrent.
I like a client to do the main job in hand without the bloated system hogs like Vuze/Azzy.
It goes without saying that i use blocking tools too.
Nice article

carlbandit avatarI personaly prefer utorrent, i tryed bit comet for a while, it seemed to run a bit faster but was harder to use than u torrent and didnt offer the function to carry on with a download which meant if u started to dowload a 10gb u couldent turn of your laptop and start from same point day after, it might have changed now, was a while ago since i used it but i think ill stick with u torrent, its realy simple to use

Darkan9el avataruTorrent 2.2.1 (build 25154) been using uTorrent still god was a lad, I also use uTorrent 1.0.2 on the hackitosh iAtkos S3 V2 side of my i7 PC, although the mac version isn't as good as the windows version.

I'm not a fan of uTorrent v3 starting to get a bit like vuze and some of the others so 2.2.1 is as far as I go I think.

uTorrent rules P2P.

hcr001 avatarWell, I'm using the latest utorrent issue and I'm doing just fine. It's actually a bit smoother. The downloads are more cosistant speed wise. Took a little while to get familiar but after a few downloads it was all good. re: China there;s so many people there any one they use nationally will out number any country. Since it must be approved by the gov't. haha!
