I think it really depends on the file size. I would love to download a 2 GB DVD on direct download, but it would take so long and there would probably be multiple retries because it might stop due to weird connection and have to start all over again. Gigantic files just are better done on torrent, even if it is slow. Smaller files like 30 MB files are really nice on direct download though.

direct downloads are okay but sometimes a pain because depending on your country there are reserved amount of people downloading at a time.....for example I only can succed in downloading from MU at 2:30 till 8 I think ....so its troublesome.... and also yousend it blocks or expires quickly... so instead of this too I prefer torrent... but.....
actually the best  I find now its sendspace... for me it works fast and if i have to wait to download the file it tries 1,2 or 3 times and it works....

sorry if it sounds confusing.......=P

Sendpsace is pretty sweet, I have to admit. MU sort of really sucks because of the pop ads and everything. Yousendit is all right. It allows people to download multiple files at a time, as I recall.

;3 I like both options and I agree bigger files for torrents and smaller files for Direct D/ls. I use to not like torrents because I had dial up (might end up going back to that x_x), but now I really like it.. Especially if there's lots of seeders 8D

I'm agree with you, torrents for the big and DD  for the short ones....but actually I think some of us are having troubles with Sendspace.....for some days it has been out for me.....I just can't download a damned thing from there....and the worst part of this is that people keep uploading in Sendspace.......so I don't know what's going on with Sendspace......

**Uploaders** please I beg you.....try to upload in other host site because I think some of us can't download  in Sendspace and Megaupload :'(

yeah, the big files for torrents is definitely it... there was some page some time a go that had whole dvds uploaded to their server, and it was like... impossible to get the stuff. there was a glay dvd a friend of mine wanted to have, but it just was impossible.

but I generally prefer torrents on the long run as well, because they don't expire... you can always ask if someone would re-seed, and when I look at the speeds I get from MU and sendspace... an average torrent, even with few seeders is much faster. today i dled a part of a movie from MU (dun ask me how they even GOT the 350 mb/part up there!) and it was like... 15 kb/s. that can easily be surpassed by a running torrent, and I'm still incredibly annoyed that that very special film is not up on any tracker... u.u

all in all I think that part took 5-6 hours to dl, and when I wanted to have the next part... it told my I was only allowed to start downloading again in 4 hours, because I had already downloaded so much.

so... I prefer torrents almost all the time, because there you have much less trouble... no ever-expiring files, no aborted downloads which have to be re-started from the beginning etc. etc.

direct downloading is nice for single mp3s, but everything above... it just got worse over the past year, a year ago you could still use ysi without registering there, and it gave you fast connections. now, ysi is members only, and I don't exactly trust them, their rules say "no copyrighted material" and I wouldn't risk them handing over my IP, MU is fucking slow, so is sendspace, not to tak of turboupload, which isn't just SLOW while uploading (nothing "turbo" about it) but also while downloading...

so, yeah. I <3 torrents. ever since I know how to use bittornade, and more so since my boyfriend did some port forwarding for me XD
