BitComet is a BitTorrent/HTTP/FTP client that helps you make the most out of the BitTorrent file sharing protocol, aiming to provide high download speeds with a reasonable impact on the system resources.

This application is among the top players in this particular category, but it still struggles to face the competition and meet the highest user expectations. Just like all the other BitTorrent clients, its main purpose is to download files at very high speeds and it achieves this successfully. What sets it apart from similar clients is its stability, the support for HTTP/FTP, torrent exchange and anonymous downloads.

Familiar GUI, schedule the PC to shutdown and use a bandwidth scheduler

The interface does not have an original design, so to say, as it resembles a great deal to other torrent clients. However, using it is not rocket science if you are accustomed with BitTorrent clients.

Feature highlights include multi-mirror and multi-section downloading, quick resume, bandwidth scheduler, a dedicated tool to shutdown computer after the download is completed, Intelligent Disk Cache and Intelligent Connection Optimization.

Prioritize segments, share torrents and schedule downloads

One of the most appreciated upsides of this client is that it allows you to prioritize the first and the last segments of media files, so you can preview them before the download is completed.

With Bitcomet, you can share your torrent files with other users via a searchable P2P network, a feature called Torrent Exchange. Bitcomet also has support for anonymous downloads through a paid VIP feature, thus preventing others from monitoring your file transfers.

Other features can be enabled or tweaked from the Options section. From here, you can configure settings related to proxy, download task, long-term seeding, integration with Internet Explorer and Firefox, integrated virus scan, download scheduler and remote downloading.

Performance and conclusion

Leaving all these things aside, BitComet seems to work just like other similar tools, although during our tests it proved a bit heavy on computer resources every time we downloaded files at high speeds. It however comes with speed limiters, so you can rest assured that computer performance won't be affected too much when downloading files.

Overall, BitComet still seems to struggle to reach the elite of this software category. Even though it sports a number of unique features, a slightly friendlier approach would definitely give it a boost.
