    What is the best Torrent client?

    What are people using for their Bit Torrent client? I need to install one, but want to ensure I don't get anything 'iffy'.

    I used Vuze until recently, I seemed to get slightly better speeds than with uTorrent, and it acted as a media bridge to my PS3 so I could watch my (legally, of course!) downloaded movies on the telly. Just lately though it's been crashing on me too regularly for me to put up with it, so I'm back to uTorrent

    Have been using Vuze since it was Azureus. Never found fault with it but might take a look at utorrent.

    Same here, but since the last update it's been hellish for me. uTorrent is good, I do miss all the extra features of Vuze though!

    For PS3 Streaming try this - ps3mediaserver - Project Hosting on Google Code

    found it fairly robust, and it does transcoding for files the PS3 can't play :-)

    Cheers I'll take a look.

    I tend to use XBMC now though with a huge HDMI cable from my PC directly to the TV, because I have an android app that acts as a remote control, it's preety nifty

    EDIT:
    I know I mis-typed pretty, but I'm going to leave it as it is, because I like it.
