Older version was superior 1 stars by Klatuu Feb 08, 2015 (Read all my 29 reviews)
I originally had a 5 star review for this program. If you still have a far older version of it - keep it! The original was a stand alone single file that was fast and simple. Now it installs, has ads, is slower, and even the interface has become too cluttered. show Review details
Works, but more ads than before 5 stars by contact862 Feb 11, 2013 (Read all my 2 reviews)
Have been using this tool a while, a bit annoying they have more ads. I don't know is it just me or does it seem to cause my system to be a little more slugish than with previous versions. show Review details
Not your father's utorrent 1 stars by raptozilla Dec 15, 2012 (Read all my 26 reviews)
This used to be a good program before Bit Torrent bought them out. Since then it has gone way downhill and has become nothing more than a Bit Torrent clone; it's more bloated and buggier than the old uTorrent client. It's bearable on Windows 7, but really bites on XP. I have an older computer that I use to share torrents that has XP, and I use version 2.21 on that, but even that is still a bit inconsistent and buggy. If you're still using XP, it's best to go with their pre-buyout version, 2.12. At one point, I was sent a survey question through the program interface that asked me what I would do if they discontinued uTorrent. I told them that I would use something else or switch to an earlier version, which I had already done on my other computer. So, since uTorrent is really no different than their Bit Torrent client, and the fact that they are asking such a question seems to indicate that they will eventually drop uTorrent rather than return it to its roots. show Review details
