Wow, even I can figure it out, I am a rookie and it took me about 5 mins to configure qbittorrent and i love it. I use it mainly to search for torrents,then i use my Real-Debrid account to do all the downloading for me, sometimes I download on the client just to give back! so if you're like me(rookie torrenter) then qbittorrent is for you!

Best bittorrent client available

Positive Comment by charlesgoodwin
about qBittorrent May 2016

Been using it since late 2015. Better than uTorrent, generations better than Transimssion or Deluge, and has evey feature I've ever needed in a bittorrent client and then some. Works superbly, let's you download torrents in sequential order, let's you organise/label/manage your torrents easily and has been flawless since I started using it. Oh, it's also X-platform. Amazing bit of software.

qBittorrent buggy on Windows.

about qBittorrent Apr 2016

Linux ... perfect. But Windows 10 demands Python installation continuously. Continuously re-installing Python now. Not sure why. Even after re-installing a fresh new Windows 10.

Shareaza is ok, but gives too much malware in searches. Tixati cannot really find torrents.

Simply great

Since version 3 it has become an effective, perhaps the best alternative to µTorrent: it's very light, it got all the necessary features, and it's also open source and totally ad-free.

Best open source torrent client in my opinion.

Positive Comment by klischee
about qBittorrent and Deluge Jun 2011

Best open source torrent client in my opinion. In opposite of Deluge it has no daemon, but a much more faster GUI and web interface in windows system. It has all needed features like magnet links, DHT, peer exchange etc, an ajax web interface, labels and such things. The author is quite active and does a good community job.
