you can download legacy builds of utorrent, because certain trackers will only allow up to specific versions of utorrent.

I just switched to qbittorrent

It's okay but i still think utorrent 2.2.1 is still the most whitelisted and lightweight client out there.

transmission <- you can put it on your router (and make it a dedicated torrent machine)

^ I put transmission on my NAS instead, router storage transfer rates don't seem to be very good, last I checked.

Nothing beats the convenience (and power savings) of Transmission in router/NAS plus Remote Transmission client on Android.

automate your torrent downloading, use flexget to listen to tracker RSS feeds and you won't need an android transmission client.

Flexget looks nice but I'm not sure I want automated downloading.

For now, I've set up Google Alerts to notify me of new torrents.

I just use the built-in RSS feed downloaders in utorrent or qbittorrent and they work fine for me.

For years now, I've been using an old windows laptop as a torrent box for pretty decent power savings and ease of use. I'm just waiting for Seagate to release its new 2.5" 5TB drive locally so I can also also use the laptop as a full fledged and upnp/dlna media server.

I've considered setting up a dedicated NAS  but the associated cost always put me off.

qbittorrent for me.

The latest version seems to have a bug where torrents can't connect with public trackers. It hasn't been whitelisted by some private trackers too.

I just rolled back to 3.3.7 and everything's back to normal.
