one of the best of its kind
Installed 0.4.0.1 x64, when installing choose the Russian language. First translation is not complete, since the confirmation window download entirely in English. It would be better the other way around, but he was transferred. You add a torrent, but the download does not start, even in the list does not appear. These torrents are loaded without any problems other torrent clients.
One of the best torrent clients I've ever used. Has IP filtering, allows selection of what files you want to download from the torrent after it's added (be nice if this was able to be done before adding the torrent to the download list), also works nicely with VPN's like Private Internet Access without having errors. Also has all the features I could possibly want. To me this IS the best torrent client. Considering it's only beta, it's incredible.
Great little client! It does the job. Personally I have these comments: * I like to sort my downloads by Date Added. This is missing. Start and Finish time is present, but that's not really the same. Also, when sorting on these column, next time the client start, they entries are mixed up again... * A torrent can have several files, and quite often I don't need all of them. You can change the priority to 'Do Not Download', but I experienced a few times that these files are then downloaded the next time the client is started, even though they are still set to Do Not Download. * I guess it's quite normal that a part of an adjacent file is also downloaded, even though it was set to Do Not Download. What I dislike is that Halite then puts this partly downloaded file amongst the the other files without being able to distinct complete/incomplete files. Of course, in case of a zip for example, the decompression client will then tell you the file is corrupt/incomplete. Imo it's better to discard that file, or to make it visible in the filename/extension it's incomplete.
