What method do you use mostly to download your anime series? Witch one do you think are best or preferable?

I am using torrents but it kind of suck when old torrent files sometimes don't have any seeds so I prefer Direct Downloads but when I had fiber-connection File Sharing Programs was good too. XDCC is pretty good to when there is no seedings for old anime when they are available.

DDL mostly saves on the bandwidth cap, but if I am hard up I will do Torrents

Stream.

• On-demand (no dl times)
• No reliance on seeders (though deleted vids are a problem sometimes)
• Doesn't waste precious HD space

DDL only. I've got a Rapidshare Premium Account, that was one of the best investments of my life.

I used mostly torrents, but some of them were pretty slow so I tried finding new way. Then I saw that DLL is always downloaded in full speed and started downloading mostly this method... ^^

DDL, I use IDM and it increases me speed by like 5-10%. I also use mIRC, torrents (slow as hell), and watch streaming :)

Mostly DDL, to save my rather limited Hard drive space.

This is no discussion or anything, but here's the reasons why I torrent:
- Torrents are released very quickly after the release with airing episodes, and episodes are downloaded within minutes
- No better way to use HD space than for anime, imo ^^
- The quality of streaming media is -extremely- low. Only if I'm really pressed will I use those pixelated views ^^

Either way, I'd still resort to downloading media thru MegaUpload or something, than resort to streaming =x

Ofc if limited space on your HD is an issue, then streaming is the only way :P

I have Mozilla firefox w/add-ons, so when I'm streaming, I use the add-on that downloads playing videos.

If that comes out unclear or doesn't work (*COUGH* megavideo *COUGH* veoh), I use direct download from download sites.

I download using this realplayer add on while I open a stream.
I find torrents are wayy too big in size. I would only be able to dl 1-2 anime series with 25+ eps if I torrent, not really worth it IMO.
