I used to use IsoHunt, it was awsome. More than a torrent site it was a community. You could click on a movie torrent and see all the comments and reviews people left, if anyone had a problem they could post it and recieve good advice.

It was easy to distinguish real, from fake movie torrents, as I usually Download movies as soon as they hit theatres. And if I downloaded a game, once again I just had to glance through the comments to find a solution.

The IsoHunt I knew and love is gone, replaced by a lighter version due in part to a lawsuit. No more comments, ratings, nothing.

I tried PirateBay, but that place is so inundated with Ads and ADware I would just get stuck on a page while Ads just loaded and refreshed, the last time I had to shutdown my computer.

So I ask, are there any good torrent search engines, or sites out there , where its easy to distinguish real from fake torrents ??? With rating systems, comments from members ?? Easy to use and find content ??

Where do you download or watch new releases ??

Rest In Peace IsoHunt, my old friend.

thank you for your recent comment lol.. i will pass your message on to the four legged one, and nope i am thankfully still here despite his man (women) eating cravings hidden by an 'im too cute to attack you' kinda face

I clicked to reply to this thread of yours with the plans to suggest trying Pirate Bay, but have now seen that isnt working for you.. that and Isohunt are the only two i can use, though i used to use Mininova, but their rules have changed..might help with what you need it for though.. just a thought..

Well,I would just Google search them and see what is out there.

Check them all out and report back as to your findings.

Remember this.Once you acquire the torrent 100 per cent, let it seed for a while before attempting to use it.

Pirate bay. best in the universe.

green skull = good
pink also good.

people will say if it s virus. plus you can see howmany seeders/leechers.

a good torrent will have thousand of leechers/seeders.

Try demonoid. I've been registered for quite a while. You'll need an invite to register.

So far, the best combo I've found are:

Torrent Downloader = uTorrent

Site: - This is a web-crawler site. I like it for the fact it throws up a list of the sites, has seeders/leechers count, and shows a random display of "what hot" as soon as you go on the site.

It's very user friendly, and if you know what a .torrent is, you should have no problem navigating the site(s) that you go to for the torrents, i.e. mono nova, mini nova, ISOhunt...

I've been using VUSE for a wee while and find I can get nearly everything I require.

PirateBay has improved lately.
No pop up ads or malware at all.

Demonoid is good, I use it second to PB.

ILoveTorrents is good if you pay, otherwise you have to wait 24 hours for new torrents.

I to don't mind Pirate Bay but they are not as safe as they are being watched, Demonoid was being watched but they keep moving there servers everytime you see them down for a while ie. harder to keep track of I usued to love torrent reactor but now just visiting the site is risk for infection also mininova has some stuff but they have pretty much been shut down. is free but have to register.

No offence, but all are being exceptions.

The best way to deal with torrents is to be as anonymous as possible, but even than it's possible to be intercepted. (I mean, the government can also make spyware etc. and just wrap this into a download and make it into a torrent)

Some things to help you with your privacy are TOR and BTguard. Learn your fair share on proxies and other privacy related things. Once you understand the technology and where the risks are than you can protect your privacy better.

My favorite is the Pirate Bay, followed by Isohunt. What I like best about Piratebay is that they are active on the area of privacy matters. Also I like the comments that come along with the torrents and that give you a pretty good idea if the torrent is of quality.

I agree with you about Isohunt. I used to love it also, and unfortunately in it's current state of near utter uselessness, it is no longer even remotely similar to it's former glory.

Piratebay is probably the best of the free torrent sites that I'm aware of, but it also has went downhill a little bit.

A new one is Kickasstorrent it is a fast moving site, and the pirate bay is still good, you just need to check for comments. is a really good site for everything, there are toolbars in firefox which tell you every torrent site.

Isohunt is still going strong outside the US, still comments for me here (UK). I also use BTJunkie, I really like it, but I'm not so keen on the general interface - Isohunt is the "best looking" torrent-site I've found.

Mostly everything I want can be found on there and I look for some pretty weird/obscure stuff.

I'd like to mention this site:

It's really tiny and mostly deals in documentaries and strange, no STRANGE films, it's friendly and nicely presented, a lot of the stuff on there is uploaded because you simply cannot get it elsewhere anymore and it seems to be a cool community.

Torrentz, Demonoid, TPB, and a few other torrent search engines.

I don't know if you can get it in the States, but here in Sweden, utorrent is excellent
