    I use a stand alone machine running Debian Linux with a combination of rtorrent using rutorrent for the web access. If you have access to older spare machine that could be an option. Or you could use some of the smaller machines on a board like the Raspberry Pi with usb drive to do similar. You need to be comfortable using the command line or willing to learn it to use these though.

    Or buy a NAS device that can have the bittorrent client installed.
    If you need it just for torrenting, you can freely go with a single-drive model. Like this one.
