not to imply it's better than torrents but,
I like DDLs becuase old anime torrents tend to die a lot, and RSS downloading means nothing if the show is from 2004 and not seeded.
I find the speeds are usually higher (on average) and more consistent than torrents.
sometimes I'll get 1mbps anime with a new torrent, might get 10kps if it's a few weeks old.
where as ddl would always be a regular 500kbps
also, DDL doesn't tie up my bandwidth nearly as bad as torrents do.
When I've got torrents running if fucks with connection and I can't load web pages or do anything online, even with just one torrent file running things get dodgy.
