Tracker Type: General
Tracker Birthday: February, 2006
From the ashes of the first italian tracker TorrentItalia, born PhoenixItalia in February 2006. It's an italian general tracker, it has a theme inspired to the ancient Roman Empire, it has a strong forum community where you can talk about pretty much everything, ask for help and request reseeds of old files. The best thing is that has internal groups that provide games, movies, tv series, music and comics with high quality releases. It is ratio based, however keeping up a good ratio is not very hard, it's only 0,6. There are freeleech, semi-free and double up torrents to help out if you dug yourself into a hole. Each torrent has it's own release where you will find from the review and technical infos. Every month PI staff makes a survey to pick Magnificus Releasers in every category. PI is tracking over 1,5K torrents that are well organized (see Browse screenshot below). No archived content is allowed on PI and scene torrents are extracted before being uploaded.

Ratings & Personal Commentary
Tv series is really an active category, the internal group is very fast in releasing episodes after the tv air. Movies has an internal group that produces high quality xvid rips, as like music and comics.
Speed is good. A lot of releasers own seedboxes, but normal users upload speed is low 'cause italian adsl sucks.
Very active in the forums. There is a bar and lab section where you can talk about everything. If you have a software or an hardware problem, there are competent users that can help you solve them.
