I am a longtime UTorrent user. I switched previously from Azureus and I loved UTorrent because it used far fewer sources and didn't slow down my PC (unless I was ULing too fast or the UL and DL speeds were both maxxing out.)
Until recently I was very happy with UT 1.61. Sometime after the update to 1.7 came out, (maybe a coincidence) it's speeds have really decreased. There is another thread below detailing that.
I haven't been able to get it DLing or ULing at the speeds I had before, and am thinking of trying another client. I'd like to use 1.7, but I've already gotten PMs from some private torrent sites that are considering banning the client and suggest NOT to update from 1.61.
What's a good alternative to UTorrent? I want to use the same ports, etc. an have low resource usage, and of course high speeds.
