I'll assume you tried limiting the throughput using Transmissions settings? I limit mine from 8AM to 8PM, but let it go full speed overnight....never had an issue.I liked uTorrent on Windows, but when I moved to OSX, I find that uTorrent Mac version is lagging far behind its Windows counterpart.
I used Transmission at first, as it's much more polished than uTorrent Mac, but I noticed my network slowed down when Transmission is downloading torrents, I tried many things but it didn't fix the problem so I switched to uTorrent for now.
I recently started using BTGuard and had to abandon Transmission....and from their forums it sounds like they'll never support a proxy.I like Transmission but now that I want to use a proxy I see its limitations.
I could use a system proxy but I heard that is not the same as using a dedicated proxy from your bT client.
Vuze is good but bloated and I'm not sure about uTorrent's newer offerings.
What do you suggest?
Hmm maybe I'll give uTorrent a shot since Vuze eats up so much memory.I recently started using BTGuard and had to abandon Transmission....and from their forums it sounds like they'll never support a proxy.
Over last weekend, I tried Vuze, uTorrent, and Deluge. I ended up sticking with Vuze - main reason being that I use Piratebay a lot and uTorrent has issues with magnet links from there - otherwise I would have prefered uTorrent. I just didn't care for Deluge's look and feel.
+1 For TransmissionTransmission
- Much more User-Friendly
- Optimized for Mac
- Apparently faster and more effiecient than many torrent clients I tried
