We have 1 review for Vuze. The average overall ratings is 4.0 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: Much like uTorrent, Vuze is a popular freeware BitTorrent client. While there are an almost infinite number of other BitTorrent clients available, these two are the dominate ones, and they offer similar features and download speeds. What is great about Vuze is that it works on all imaginable platforms. It also fully backward compatible. This means that you can be using the latest version while others can use older versions, and it will not make a difference. Vuze also has a big user base, which is a big plus for this kind of software. Vuze further has lots of third-party plugin support, and it has lots of useful features. There probably is not a BitTorrent client available that has more features than Vuze, and that includes uTorrent. This does not mean that Vuze does not have its drawbacks. It is written entirely in Java, and because of this it can be a resource hog. It also has ads. Though Vuze also has a lightweight client called Leap, which uses far less resources and has no ads. Vuze will further install adware on your machine if you do not choose a custom installation and specifically turn this "feature" off.
Pros: Is completely free to use Is available for just about every platform imaginable Has support for lots of third-party plugins Has a large user base Offers a lightweight version without ads
Cons: Because it is written in Java it tends to be a resource hog Its full-featured client has ads Installs adware if you do not specifically tell it not to install it
