I've used several P2P syncing apps in the past but they went by the wayside or grew to be very expensive. For the past couple years I've been using GoodSync (GS) and have been quite happy with it. However, when I learned of BitTorrent Sync (BTS) I just had to give it a try. Today I ran a few "low tech" tests to see how the two products compared. Here's what I found when transferring 1108 files totaling 406MB: Time To Transfer Over The Web BTS = 12 Minutes GS = 28 Minutes Time To Transfer Over A LAN BTS = 10.5 Minutes GS = 0.75 Minutes Memory Use BTS = 4.9MB GS = 9.9MB I'm thrilled with the feature set of BTS but the "over a LAN" transfer rate seems awfully slow. I'll give it another try in case something was amiss.
