Thread: Shareaza Sux Balls

  1. #1
    Well I decided to give it another go, I got a file off ShareReactor and opened it in both Shareaza and EMule, keep in mind I just formatted like a week ago, Shareaza seemed to start downloading the file right away and it seemed to have more sources while EMule just sat there like a mule. I thought Shareaza would have this one considering the start. So I went to sleep and when I woke up Shareaza had a whopping 20mb while EMule had 200mb just sitting there at some shit slow but steady speed, at the same time Shareaza has better speeds but would peek and the pause. Kinda remends me of the Rabbit and the Turttle. Not sure if the rewards system works better on EMule or if Shareaza only allows so much usage for the EDK2 network but it Sux for EDK2 files.

    My older example was opening a torrent in both Shareaza and Shadow at the same time, Shareaza never got past 40KB/s while the same torrent in Shadow was going at 150KB/s at the same time. I am not sure if Shareaza can only handle a certain amount of connections or has other issues but it Sux for torrent files.

    As for G2 it may be growing as I have heard it is creeping up on 100,000 users but what can be found there can probably be found quicker and easier elsewhere, it still does not have the rare files that EMule has or the speeds that others have thus it Sux.

    Shareaza is nothing more than a pretty GUI with a hack on other networks that it seems to have less access to than that which it has hacked, it is great and simple perhaps for those that want one simple GUI or happen to be on dial up, but in general it Sux Balls.

    I couldn't agree with you more.I used Shareaza extensively for a month and it is shite.

    But this is just one case. Surely you would need to carry out the experiment at least 3 times before forming a conclusion?

    I prefer having all my networks in one program, rather than having to install emule client, bittorrent client, gnutella client all separately.

    It doesn't really matter to me if the speed of shareaza is slower, because my downstream can never go above 20KB/s anyway.

    I use Raza also, and I have to admit that the speeds are totally frustrating as compared to K-Lite. Although my ADSL speed is 384/128 Kbps, I seldom D/L with speeds higher than 8-9 KB/s in Raza. On the contrary, in K-Lite 20+ KB/s is the not uncommon at all.

    Since Raza has admittedly much better variety and quality of files however, I usually use K-Lite for movies (which are very big files, and also can be previewed so you know what u get), and Raza for music (small files) and apps (fakes can be disastrous).

    amen
    I have been screaming that from the beginning, most seem to use it only for bittorrent, well most clients built on shad0ws client blow shareaza away, well with my limited use for e donkey network it was even slower than emule (didn't even think that was possible)
    add that to the fact that they change the default setting to kbs tells me that they them selfs know its slower than the stand alone clients

    They make it kb/s because it's more accurate, and you can change ti so waht does it matter?

    I will admit Shadows is faster for BT, but I hardly use it so it doesn't matter.

    And it is number one for G2, which is one of the best netowrks for music.

    Since when, try SoulSeek


    My point here is that any of the clients that it connects to are better on their own
    with the exeption of G2 which is a very a small network...

    What a statement.

    Cheers for that.
