The first time I read about sendoid.com I was really interested about the services offered by this site. In fact, the possibility to share files with my friends regardless dimensions through a torrent protocol appeared to be very useful.
Unfortunately, in my personal experience the results are not so positive as promised by Sendoid.com. When you decide to try it, you can choose between the online version and the desktop widget built on the Adobe AIR technology. The widget installation is easy, graphically nice and simple to use. Furthermore, the online interface is very well structured in few clicks you are able to “build” the torrent url to share your file directly from you PC to other people through torrent protocols. For this reason, if you decide to use the online version, you are not allowed to close the webpage with the url because it is the “door” to keep the torrent working.
The first problem is that the data are not protected by https and you can only decide to add a password to your file. On the other hand, with just one click you can decide to share the file with more than a person.
The second, big, problem you have with Sendoid is the transfer speed because, in my tests, the service was not so competitive in terms of timing. A light 160MB ISO needed more than 20 minutes to complete its transfer from my computer to another located in a near city. Unfortunately I was not able to understand if this specific problem was related to the ISPs or to the sendoid service but I obtained the same results in different extra tests I decided to try with similar files.
To conclude I decided not to use sendoid and now I am looking for another program or website which could offer similar features. Please, if you have something to suggest, do not hesitate to add a comment!
God i love torrents, dont have to pay for ANYTHING anymore.
Nice post! 🙂
Sendoid uses Flash. Check your Flash is enabled etc or Sendoid will not work with no warnings, no diagnostics and no support.
