VUZE is torrent client that enables you to download torrent files, as well as search and subscribe to sites that offer them. VUZE packs a ton of useful features beneath its sleek user interface, ranging from notification options to device playback tools.

Torrent Management

VUZE's torrent management options enable you to set the priority of multiple torrents, ration your bandwidth, add tags to your torrent and categorize your downloads. The program keeps you abreast of your torrents' status by providing you with a progress meter, download speeds and estimated times of completion. Basic pause and resume functions round out VUZE's torrent management features.

Discovering New Content

VUZE's search features direct your searches through a listing of torrent tracker sites, eliminating the need to browse tracker sites individually. VUZE's subscription utility enables you to subscribe to a torrent creator. By subscribing, you'll receive updates whenever your selected torrent creator releases a new torrent. Taking the subscription function a step further is VUZE's Swarm Discovery feature.

Swarm Discovery analyzes torrent files and looks for elements that tie them to other torrents. VUZE's Swarm Discoveries make recommendations to you, helping you find new content based on the torrents you've already used. After enabling Swarm Discoveries, you can use VUZE's Swarm Search to find content related to your swarms.

Playback Options

After your torrents have completed, VUZE's playback tools facilitate the transfer of your media to your media players. VUZE can format media for playback on mobile devices, DVRs, gaming consoles and software media players. Simply dragging and dropping your downloaded media onto your playback device or utility starts the conversion process and then transfers the media. VUZE detects your playback devices and will convert your media into a compatible format before transferring it.

The Verdict

VUZE goes above and beyond the minimum requirements of a torrent manager by offering useful media management tools. VUZE covers every aspect of torrent acquisition, from searching tracker sites to transferring media to your playback devices. When it comes to torrent management software, you'll be hard pressed to find an application better than VUZE.
