What is the Fastest Music Downloading Software?
During the week of Feb. 10 - Feb. 16, 2008, Consumer-Reviews.us downloaded the latest release of MP3 Rocket and tested it against Limewire, Frostwire and Bearshare.
"For the testing, both MP3Rocket and Limewire were run on the same computer. They both had their own incoming and download folders, but the same shared folder. The software downloads were divided with 1/2 of bandwidth between them. The 700MB cable and gave each 350MB limits. The uploads were limited both to 15MB each. Searches were conducted using exact phrases and searched and downloads used the same file names.
Both had close to the same search results for the same file names at times MP3Rocket had more results at times Limewire, so they were both pretty much equal.
Once again they were pretty much equal here. Ten files at a time were downloaded both simultaneously and bandwidth was shared equally between the two. Some files MP3Rocket completed first some Limewire. With all files being of same name a size and started approximately at the same time. Some of the files MP3Rocket found more sources others Limewire found more about 50/50 here. MP3Rocket did complete the total groups of files before Limewire in all cases MP3Rocket was about 20 percent faster.
The last test mixed popular files and files that only had one or two sources. The MP3Rocket did find more sources to download from on less popular files and would complete these files also about 20 percent faster.
It is Consumer-Reviews.us opinion that the additional features is where the MP3 Rocket is a clear winner over Limewire. MP3Rocket also provides free TV, Radio and Game streams. MP3Rocket was easier to set up and use and there is also a better display of information on the MP3 Rocket screen and simpler to use. In our opinion MP3Rocket is the better of the two choices."
