its good if you want to download the whole album. they can get quite tedous though, when searching for the torrents.

IMO limewire is faster, but you only dl one song at a time unless you search them all out. i use both, try it with a small album, see if you like it.

it can also get slow if there arent alot of seeds.

EDIT:
to get you started- www.bitlord.com is a good app, and www.torrentspy.com is good for searching, i guess.

I personally use Bitlord and find it quite adequate. Torrents are great for albums and games.

Torrents are used to distribute large files over the web, a p2p (like limewire, etc.). You can download music, movies, applications, software, pretty much anything you want. Download a random Torrent client you want and search a torrent site (Google torrent sites) for anything you want to download. I think it's better than Limewire and I have Limewire Pro. Also, I personally think Torrents download faster than p2ps (At least the client I use BitLord)

Sorry for saying everything everyone just said lol

using torrents you can potentially download any file ya want without running all the risks of getting a virus like ya do in limewire. Ive downloaded albums, dvd rips, games and utility software.

personally i use utorrent, 170kb standalone file, how could you possibly go wrong? Trust me it does everything you could possibly need especially for a beginner and im not sure about bitlord but i know that with azureus you need to update your java and shit which can get annoying

and live music. Tons of bootlegs out there

I use bitpump. Torrents are great, they require no effort...I just start the download leave the computer and in a couple of hours everything is done (well, this is for lossless music in FLAC and shn files...I'm assuming smaller files will take a lot less time).

yeah azureus was always a RAM-hog on my computer and make everything slower so i'm using utorrent atm and its awesome. just make sure you have a port open for your downloads to d/l at full speed and you'll be fine

OK first off dont listin to any of these people of where to get torrents at. Go to Torrentz.com. Why there? Because they search around 10-15 sites for what you want.

Torrentz.com does pretty much own all else. Gives you lists of trackers to add and shit. Also, BitTornado is basically the best client ever, in my opinion.

Use Azureus, it's one of the better programs for downloading torrents. Torrents are only good if your looking for a movie or an entire album though.
#25
Ok I downloaded both now I have to sace to disk or something?

How do I do the download? I'm a noob to all this.

utorrent + decent router + port forwarding = gold.

legal torrents for me (open source stuff) goes like the clappers, because theres on average 20 seeders at any time. illegal stuff is very frequently leeched, and suffers as a result.

IMO I think that there is no difference between the torrents clients. I mean, they all do the same job. One thing that can influence your download speed is only your connexion and your firewall.
Btw, I use BitComet and I never had any problems and it's loading quite fast.
