I am a virgin Mac user and yet it was dead simple for me to use this torrent client. All files are downloaded very well and it shows the download and upload speeds on the dock icon so you don't have to open it to check the speed. Transmission is lightweight meaning you can do lots of other stuff while it is on.

Best is to go to youtube and check some videos on how to tweak some of the settings to increase the speed. You need to do this just once and then it just runs like a supercar every time you download a torrent.

Only thing on downside is that you cannot make the upload speed to zero, if you do so it will slow your download speeds dramatically. I have a simple way to eliminate this. Once the file is downloaded I remove it from transmission and store it in its new folder locations.

Review in once sentence: This is Rolls Royce of Torrent clients.
