Reviews of Transmission for Mac OS X

  1. 2 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing 2.50 Beta 1 (Feb 13, 2012)

    Windows review:
    Just like when I decided to give Deluge a try, I shouldn't have given one to this. It's actually the exact same experience:
    slow and cumbersome
    hijacked torrent association without an option not to.
    no portable version
    minimal options
    doesn't share enough bandwidth

    It is in the beta stages for windows but after the bad taste Deluge for windows left in my mouth I don't know if I'll try this again. UNINSTALLED!

    Look under add-ons on their site, the1st link is to an unofficial windows port.
    I haven't tried it yet (and I don't have a mac), so I can't say anymore about either.
    I'l probably give the port a shot when I get a chance, and if it's better than utorrent, then I'll switch.

    When will this software be available for Windows?

    I use this under Mint and it kicks the crap out of the mess uTorrent has become in version 3 under Windows. This is a small, fast and efficient piece of software - everything a Torrent client should be.

    It is the very antithesis of Fuze.

    FIVE stars.
