Xfactor and Azureus are working fine, for big downloads too.
I don't like Tomato.. too minimalist, but it works.
I didn't test aMule and Transmission yet..

Transmission isn't allowed by certain trackers like Oink so I stopped using it. Tomato is working but can't say I like it, but it does work. A uTorrent port would be primo. A emulated bulky java ap like Azureus does not sound fun to me so I havent tried it yet.

I'm using Bits on Wheels too. Reminds me of uTorrent and it works just as good as the Windows version (klaupacius, should check it out).

Check out this: http://www.pure-mac.com/p2p.html for all other P2P needs.

Poisoned -connects to most major networks, even Kazaa.
Tomato -simple, perhaps even too simple, but it's native (which doesn't really matter with a BT client)

Guys, transmission is the very best. I never heard before from it but i'm using it for one hour now and it's very fast. Before i used bittorrent (Azureus don't work) for osx86 and it was downloading at 10-25 KB/s maximum.
I launched transmission and after 3 minutes it was downloading at 80-200 KB/s. It also connect very fast to peers.
So transmission rules!!

If you use BitCommet, try uTorrent, it kicks {censored}! and won't do nasty upload cheats(some sites have banned bitcommet)

I agree. I thought Tomato was okay until tody. I've been trying to download a certain "digital life suite" but Tomato keeps crapping out (and loosing peers). It starts out at like 15K/s and gradually slips down to <1K/s within a half an hour. So after having to restart it several times, I dld Transmission, and 80K/s immediately and climbing. In the time it took me to write this, It had just hit 140 (my upload limit was 150). Transmission kicks {censored}!

I'm downloading Ilife06 for 80 hours now, and i have only 50% done. In the beginning i was downloading with transmission at a high speed, because it slowed down to 2 kb/s i switched to bits on wheels,now at 5 kb/s.
There are a lot of seeders now and it still slows more and more down. I tried also Tomato, witch sucks.
I know Azureus is the very best but it doesn't work. I tried everything (chmod, rosetta) but no luck. It launch for a second and then stops again. I'm using the 10.4.3 update.
Any suggestions?
Also is it possible to download a torrent with two programs at the same time? I'm trying it out right now with transmission and bits on wheels. They are downloading together at 17 kb/s.

You absolutely should try to Azureus

It works very nicely, max speed and never crash.

There is a intel version

Best apps for Bittorent
