Download/Usage Note
CBS Interactive does not encourage or condone the illegal duplication or distribution of copyrighted content.

ProsCons

Simple, easy to use interface

Easy to set up: The setup wizard can automatically add an exception for uTorrent in Windows Firewall, though you may have to configure uTorrent manually in other firewalls or security apps. We could set uTorrent to start with Windows; handy for scheduling downloads.

Easy to use: A customizable user interface let us display a lot of information and buttons or keep it clean with just the basics. Tabs manage Files, Info, Peers, Ratings, Trackers, and Speed. Help, FAQs, forums, a Web page, and other resources are at hand.

Extensive torrent download information

Small footprint on drive space and system resources

RSS feeds: RSS auto-downloading makes for speedy feed updates.

Handy connection test for faster set-up

Free

No built-in player

Ad-heavy: Ads in freeware don't bother us (much) but uTorrents are geared toward young adult males, and some of the online services they advertise might not be appropriate for some users.

Copyright issues: It's illegal to use BitTorrent (or any P2P network or technology) to post or download copyrighted material (music, movies, games) and uTorrent makes that clear with a note in the setup process. Music and video producers often post exclusive tunes and clips in promo bundles, for example.

uTorrent includes everything you would expect from a complete, reliable torrent downloader: highly detailed stats, support for RSS feeds, automatic shutdown, download scheduler and more. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in uTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading, and Mainline DHT. Additionally, uTorrent supports the protocol encryption joint specification and peer exchange. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources–typically using less than 6MB of memory, allowing you to use the computer as if it weren’t there at all.There are a couple things that uTorrent is missing though: a full torrent search tool and a built-in player to preview your downloads.uTorrent is an efficient BitTorrent client for Windows from the originator of the BitTorrent protocol.

Key features :

Fast
Download your files as quickly and efficiently as possible without slowing down your other online activities.

Bundles
Direct access to over 10,000 artists and 2,000,000 pieces of content. Download media directly from a variety of artists, bands, authors, and filmmakers.

Lightweight
uTorrent is a little over 2 MB (smaller than a digital photo). It installs ultra-fast and will never hog your valuable system resources.

Powerful
Want total control? The app offers advanced settings such as automation, scripting, remote management, and more.

Ideal for all user levels

Since version 3 uTorrent has sported a totally redesigned interface: more usable, easier to use and a perfect match for uTorrent’s web interface.

Just like previous versions, uTorrent 3 is easy enough to use for everyone no matter what their level of computer expertise is, but it also includes dozens of configuration settings that will please the most tech-savvy users.

If you’re looking for a good BitTorrent client, try uTorrent. It has what other BitTorrent clients have, such as scheduling, bandwidth management, and Mainline DHT, plus extras like a unique protocol that detects and corrects for heavy traffic. Animated ads for games and other software keep uTorrent free, but the developer warns of counterfeits that charge for the software or subscriptions.

Bottom Line

uTorrent is an efficient and feature-rich BitTorrent client for Windows sporting a very small footprint. It was designed to use as little CPU, memory, and space as possible while offering all the functionality expected from advanced clients.

download using uTorrent

Locate a torrent file on the Web, and click on it to download the .torrent file, which is essentially a set of instructions for uTorrent to begin locating and downloading the content from a wide range of peer sources around the Internet. Note: you should only download content that is legally available to you.

speed up uTorrent

Fortunately, there are several options to speed up uTorrent. Here’s how to make uTorrent download faster in most cases. For more in-depth instructions, take a look at our full guide on how to speed up uTorrent downloads.

• Allot more bandwidth to the torrent. Simply right-click on the file you want to prioritize and adjust the bandwidth allocation to “high.”

• Add new trackers. This adds both new seeds and new peers to your torrent download, and will increase uTorrent download speed in most cases.

• Connect directly to seeds with UPnP – choose “Enable UPnP Port Mapping” from the connections section of the preferences menu to allow direct connections to “seeders.”
