This review was already posted by me on some other forums, here's a little bit updated variant
Answers to popular questions:
- the only availible language for the tracker is russian. no engilsh. non. nicht
- but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. here's a link to a great translate tool, a firefox plugin, FoxLingo https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/2444
personally, i translated screenshots using the other method, promt 8.0 via its plugin for firefox, it works also but requires a huge piece of software installed
- tracker is availible for registrations 18 hrs from 24, sample registrations screen are placed in the review.
- yes, there are ads on the tracker, can be easily blocked, you should know the tricks
- easiest way to use it - searchbar for the tracker is located at the top right corner

"Best kept secret" torrents.ru
Anyway, most of the screenshots were translated with promt 8.0, originally site is in russian.
Using these screens it should be very easy for you to navigate, or you can repeat my steps installing this translator.
Separate words can be translated at lingvo.com, texts/open urls - promt.com or google translate )
So, torrents.ru is the russian's biggest and it seems that it's the world's biggest and best tracker with ratio system and moderation.
500 non-russian mainstream dvd's only from year 2005 (as an example)
500 TB torrents size amount
12.000+ users at the tracker at the same time recorded maximum
every tracker search is limited to 500 results maximum
speeds of course are very good at new and popular torrents (although there's almost no seedboxes in Russia), on older torrents speeds can be disappointing but content worth it 200%
if you have at least decent pipe, ratio will not be a problem for you. at all.
Some sections like tv-series or dvd-rips are of no value for non-russian users but there's a lot of content that is not directly linked to russian language:
music, hd/dvd movies, teaching stuff, software, sport show....
Tracker is closely integrated with forum and torrents can be reached two ways - through front page (less convinient) and through tracker search page. link is located close to left upper corner and called Tpekep. and from there it's very convinient to navigate. Search is ||О|/|CK.
All right, this was the main hints, they will be repeated in screenshots along with the other useful information ) let's start
