Default Which is the best torrent download app to use?

Which is the best torrent download app to use? I'm new to this kind of downloading. Limewire has worked for me up to now.

I like bitlord.

Azureas was good too but for some reason bitlord gives me consistantly better results and download speeds. I'm not sure why.

I have used azureus. It was good but kind of too technical for me.

I also tried BitComet. Its great, reliable, and had no glitches.

But then I tried utorrent and I would seriously recommend anyone to use utorrent. Its fabulous. Simple, small, sleek and downloads very efficiently.

http://www.utorrent.com/

Btw, the latest version of getright uses torrents together with http links to download different parts of files simultaneously. But, I havent tried it myself yet so I cant really say anything about it.

Another utorrent vote. You can't beat the feature set for a 150KB app that only eats a few megs of RAM. Azureus is nice, but since it's Java based it's a total RAM hog.

utorrent. Azuereus seems to be slow for some silly reason and it crashes quite a lot. If you expect your torrents to have finished downloading when you get back from work you get a nasty suprise.

Why is it so difficult to preview something being downloaded with these torrents? I have the K-light 2.72 codec pack and MP10 but I still can't preview it.
