Compare and contrast.
Speed, pretimes, fake files are the main problems with public trackers.
But many a times, the speed on public trackers is usually better on rare or old content because of the sheer amount of users.

Simple answer Seedboxes.
lets say you have 4000 seeders on a public torrent, you can only connect to 50 of them, which means 50KBs usually.
now a private tracker with 1 SB member, you can max your download on them.
so the difference is, do you like to share or not, if not, use public slower downloads, but you can Hit and Run, Private = faster downloads if you connect to a seedbox, but you have to seed back.
private for me.

I think we all know the differences between the two.
public torrents will always have a place with the BT world
Private trackers are the way to go once you know your shit
If you don't have a very good internet connection and won't use the tracker often, then a public tracker is the way to go, but you're better of on a private tracker if you plan using it often and have a good internet connection.
Demonoid all the way
I don't seed on public trackers for some reason, whereas I seed months and years on private ones.
