An add-on for your uTorrent client to boost overall download performance.
Pros: For users on slow connections the Turbo accelerator is a great boon, as it works as an add-on for the existing uTorrent client and significantly improves its overall performance. This is done in several ways. For one thing the Turbo Accelerator searches for more download sources for a particular a lot more frequently than the native uTorrent client. When new sources are discovered therefore you automatically experience faster speeds. It also tries to maintain constant download speeds over long periods instead of taking a sporadic approach. This is also more aggressive than the uTorrents more conservative approach. On connections that are unreliable, performance is improved due to the fact that the software automatically monitors the status of the connection and resumes downloads as necessary.
Additional features include automatic backup of configuration on quitting of the application or computer restart, that is loaded on startup, resuming all the incomplete downloads; and completed and corrupt files are deleted automatically. A nice boost to your uTorrent application.
Cons: Advanced users will find the fact that no customization is possible a bit frustrating. The interface is unattractive and too simple and allows nothing more than enabling the user to click on the “ACCELERATE!”. If the software would utilize the entire available bandwidth during an idle period it would result in even more improvement. As it stands, users on faster connections will experience only a very slight speed increase.
Overall: 4 stars. Works pretty well. It has a unattractive interface: limited function and non-customizable. Little increase in speed for broadband users.
