    You forgot to say which OS you're using, and whether you're using a seedbox.

    Would you care to elaborate? The only times I've had that issue is when I transcoded video to the same drive I was leeching on, and that's no more since I now have separate drives.

    Anyway, I second Anarkial's comment, if your desire to switch is so big.

    I've only had that issue on failing drives. May want to run some drive diagnostics as it may not be utorrent causing your issues... At the very least, back up your data in case...

    Edit: I transcode all the time on the same drive that I leech/seed on, and its an old IDE drive too. Guess I'm just lucky?

    Qtorrent is a very good utorrent alternative and best of all its open source http://qbittorrent.sourceforge.net/

    I guess so, specially if your connection speed is better than mine. I use viDrop (which is a mencoder frontend) for those tasks, maybe which program you use makes a difference. Or it could also be the you're using a large disk cache in uTorrent - I used to work around the issue by setting it to 500MB.

    And I've heard Deluge can actually be faster and upload more in high-speed connections

    Just try it, I guess...
