    I am reading into which bittorrent client is the best to use. I have SHAREAZA and am happy with it. But sometimes I have to wait hours and hours without it even downloading a single KByte. I have read alot about bittornado.

    Also is it advisable to use two at once.

    Any input appreciated. cheers

    Yeah i tryed using shareaza for a few days but i was Applauded by the long lags in download time.
    bittornado is a very nice client to use but if you want the best imho id recommend getting Azureus. Im really Satisfied with it, great layout and style great speeds easy to configure a really brillant client. Heres the link to download it, you also need to download the Java runtime for it to work.

    Azureus- http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/azureus/Azureus_2.1.0.4_Win32.setup.exe?download

    Java runtime-
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=84122

    Hope that helps you out. Enjoy :)

    Euughh Azureus - Shareaza

    they make me sick

    to be honest there no best client it really it just about what u prefer, there are only slight differences - if the torrent isent seeded it wont move on any software

    but, ive found i get the most compatibility, use and speed out of G3 Torrent

    hope this helps

    Azureus wprks the best out of any of the mentioned clients "speed wise". I just recently got G3 and have been trying it for a few days now and well.......it sucks! When I set the upload settings to "0" equalling unlimited upload speed I can't get my downloads above 9 or 10. When I lower the upload speeds my download speeds increase for a little while then drops. As I continue take the same steps in increments I keep getting the same results! What is the purpose of sacrificing your bandwith for others while you suffer. Azureus is more efficient!

    you should

    only dont do what idiot jeph2k3 does and set upload to 0 which means unlimited, thats stupid

    set it to your maximum upload or just 3 or 4 kbps below it

    with that i get top download and top upload

    I was just going by what the rest of the morons like yourself say about keeping your upload rate as high as possible to int turn get faster download speeds. If you've got a problem with my opinion that is one thing, but don't start bad mouthing ME!
