Default Torrent program

What torrent downloading programs are you guys using? What do you think is the best and fastest? I have been using bitcomet for a while, and I wanna see if i can get something better. BTW, torrents are technically legal if used for backups, so dont close this thread!

yeah if ou like mpaa spying on you
i say utorrent>1.6.1
or azureus >=2.4.0

and if you sue either dont forget about ip blocking. azureus has its own built in peer list. however azureus is a resource hog, while utorrent isnt,i get the same speeds for both azureus just connects to more peers though
