maybe a low version of utorrent. (v 2.2.1)

if you have a android device Ttorrent is the best.

I think you won't go far wrong with gaynight's suggestion.

I use uTorrent v3.0 and stopped there after I read of problems with the subsequent upgrades then the intrusive stuff included.

It's also a good idea to check that the torrent sites you use don't ban some versions. I use one site (rarely) where I have to start up an earlier version of uTorrent because they don't allow 3.0

PS I should have mentioned that I have had no problems using uTorrent to create a torrent, upload or download torrents

I agree, certainly the best torrent client for Macs. Even on an old Mac Mini it runs great, and has a really good interface

I dumped utorrent years ago
I've been using qbittorrent for a while and am quite happy with it.
It's a lot like utorrent so easy to configure.
Been testing out deluge lately. Can't say much wrong with it but i'll see in time if I like it

Am I the only one who turns of the ads in the new uTorrent versions?

If you choose Transmission and download it from its website, be sure to check its hashes. Because it has been reported several times that malware detected in Transmission downloaded from its official website (hacker attacked their server and replaced it with an infected version).
You can get hashes with command `shasum -a 256 Transmission-*.dmg` and compare it with the correct one on the official download page.

I personally use Tixati. It's colourful, which I like. Only available for windows and linux, though.

I'm on Windows and I used first uTorrent (latest) and then qbittorrrent... Now I'm going back to uTorrent.

Why?

I'm usually seeding 100-200 torrents, and I've noticed that qbittorrent is not good with uploads.

I had plenty much more uploading with utorrent, therefore also quota on tracker sites Smiley

With qbittorrent I had lost several hundreds of GB of download capacity Sad

I see that there are peers and I have seed but qbit puts only so little amount of torrents to the upload stream at given time.

Also qbit has - well much features - but utorrent has a lot more features, which is important Smiley

The code is pretty portable, and the QT-based UI should work on Windows too.  with love

They are not actually distributing binaries for Windows mainly because the devs do not want to handle it.  blow nose
No one's gonna blame them 4 that anyway xD In fact you can use cmake to generate a Visual Studio Project pretty easily ...
