Torrent downloading program other than Vuze?

Is there anything out there better than Vuze? maybe something faster?

For some reason my torrents are showing eta's of days and days and I wondering if it is because of Vyze?

Please help as I can't wait 45 days for an audio book.

I use Emule. Correctly setup, and it gives you all you want in good speed.

uTorrent is the 'industry standard' torrent client nowadays.

I'm not a techie so don't know about correct settings etc, but vuze was great for about 2 months then it just started to slow down. I went back to utorrent until that started slowing down, again after a couple of months. Went back to vuze for a second time: this time the honeymoon lasted less than a month, so back on utorrent now. Download speeds are crap but I believe that is because TOT is now utter shite.

I use utorrent, but remember it's not the bit torrent program that has anything to do with speed. It's the number of seeders that are available and the number of seeders you are able to connect to through the Thai gateway. There may be 10,000 seeders but you may only be able to connect to 10.

Usually, audio books are not being seeded as prolifically as movies or music.

You will find that the BitTorrent protocol has nothing to do with P2P network like Emule.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_(protocol)

vs

eMule - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
eMule compared to other p2p networks

One of the advantages of eMule is a large user base, currently averaging 3 to 4 million people, which share some 4 billion files ,which makes it excellent for finding rare content. It is said to be the most complete implementation of the eD2k protocol and its extensions. However the transfer speed is generally slower than torrent, although faster than anonymous networks. eMule supports AICH, making its corruption handling competitive with BitTorrent. eMule also supports source exchanges, allowing it to substantially reduce the loads on the servers and Kad. With a High ID and well-sourced downloads pre-acquired by server and/or Kad, eMule is able to sustain the peer sources on these files independent longer after disconnection from eD2k and Kad.
