Overview: Zbigz is a popular torrent downloading service because of its free tier. However, many free users turn away because of overwhelming ads all over the place.

Zbigz is an old dog that has been here since forever to provide you with its torrent downloader and cloud storage space. The whole user interface is rather simple, and you can get the hang of it very quickly. The auto sorting system will show you a short cut to all your video files. Unfortunately, mobile devices are not fully supported, and you will find the user experience bland, bad and overall terrible. Not only you have half of the screen missing and unresponsive, but you also have ads all over the phone (if you are a free user). Responsivity seems like a course word in this development team. Premium tiers can store their file indefinitely, free users have only 7 days. The interesting claim is that they don’t limit storage space for premium users. That can be achieved only if they have shared storages and wipe up actions or some hidden limits, its impossible to have unlimited storage for the whole mob.
Adding new torrents is as easy as a breeze. Simply grab magnet link, direct link or .torrent file and upload it to your Zbigz account.
This leech only service (that is right, no seeding back) packs its own torrent client. As with any torrent downloader, the speed itself depends on the health of this particular torrent file, and that is tied to the number of seeds. While downloading from public trackers is alright, support for private ones is just horrible. Not only is their client widely supported, but also the speed is just slow. This is the result of many attempts from various trackers.

Our tip: Zbigs + private tracker is not the brightest idea. They are slow, unsupported and don’t seed back. Be cautious about this before buying.
Zbigz has its only central server farm in Canada (or at least, this is the place of highest measured speed). As with any centralized service, you can expect this speed to drop at regions far from Canada (India, China or Australia are the most significant).

Zbigz premium users can use the included Google Drive connection to share their content to the Drive. Chrome users have access to a browser extension that adds torrent with one click. Video player is also a welcomed feature that simplifies the whole experience. Don’t download the file if you can watch it inside of your own browser.
The premium plans are alright, but I disliked the whole free tier extravaganza. Ads, limited space and downloads that are not what I like. No seeding policy is also a massive reason for turn back.
