Re: [BT] uTorrent No Upload Mod: uSerenity

I really wanted to hear from other users of uSerenity, & if they have noticed a profound difference in download speed, compared to a traditional uTorrent client (with appropriate upload capping enabled).

I have never heard of uSerenity, but I find it hard to believe it could give me a "profound" difference in download speed compared with uTorrent, and the built-in Opera BT client I have tested. Both saturate my download bandwidth. On the 15Mbs ADSL2+ connection, as well as on the 2.5Mbs ADSL connection.

There is absolutely a profound difference in download speed, but only for the people who don't know about the need to choke their upload bandwidth. That might be a reason why P2P leeches have always been so common. They just don't know any better.

True, but the OP wanted confirmation that uSerenity was, somehow, faster on the download than other clients. With upload properly managed (I hate Aeria Games for requiring that one uses their proprietary BT client; it saturates the upload, with no way to manage it natively), download speed is consistent with the usual caveat; you can't pull faster than others in the swarm can push, or your ISP speed tier, whichever is slower.

I use QoS on my network. None of these proprietary clients bother my connection because I prioritize important protocols and deprioritize torrents. Found that to actually improve performance because data packets are scheduled to network load and priority, thus the line does not get chokes and the torrents mainly just get throttled as needed to maintain quality of service. If the line keeps a good ping with appropriately scheduled packets, even torrents perform better, yet I can make an SIP call with these things running.

A fool thinks they know everything.

A wise person knows enough to know they couldn't possibly know everything.

There are zealots for every OS, like every religion. They do not represent the majority of users for either.
