How does this compare to uTorrent in speed and stability? I installed uTorrent 3.2 last night to grab Black Mesa and my firewall started throwing a tantrum warning me about all the bundled crapware. Now looking for a serious alternative to uTorrent.

I used it briefly, found it wouldn't always correctly seed my existing files when I add a torrent to qTorrent. So I went back to uTorrent despite not liking how it was using 15-30kb/sec of upload overhead on seeded torrents, even with nobody leeching from me.

I'm very happy with Deluge now, connects very fast, seeds even better than utorrent and overhead is only 2-3kb/sec.

In the past when I've had to use torrents, I'd use Deluge in my Linux desktop. It's a great client, and I'd give it a go on Windows too.

I just installed qbitorrent and Deluge... I'm trying both! I'll keep one of these and I'll wave uTorrent bye-bye.

So... Deluge would you propose? Did you try both, though?
