About four months ago we reported about the launch of BIT-UNITED (BU), a new gazelle based private BitTorrent tracker which indexed releases by HD encoder group UNIT3D. After a several weeks of testing, BU ended the beta last December and their public launch was a blast. Thousands of new members joined the site within a matter of days and it soon hit the maximum user limit, bringing an end to open registrations. If you were too late back then and couldn’t create an account on this tracker, here’s a second chance; BiT-UNiT3D has raised it’s user capacity and opened the doors to the public once again. If you are interested in downloading high definition movie encodes by team UNiT3D (which are not usually found on other HD trackers), you might want to check this site out.

BU is actually the sister site of HD-UNiT3D which is a DDL forum run by Team UNiT3D. UNiT3d is a P2P oriented High definition movie release group comprising of over 15 encoders. If you are unfamiliar with HD-UNiT3D forum and their internal encodes, we suggest you read this post first. BU was started as a sister project of the DDL forum. It’s aim too was to offer downloads to UNITED encodes – this time using the popular BitTorrent technology as opposed to one click hosting links provided by its sibling.

During the 3-4 months it has been online, BiT-UNiT3D has recruited close to 1500 active members and managed to index over 650 torrents (that is 600+ movies). Note that all of these releases are exclusive torrents unlikely to be found anywhere else. UNiT3D releases typically come in 720p, 480p or m-HD video formats (usually in a Matroska container) and all are uploaded in UnRAR’d form.

Apart from the  features we mentioned in our initial review, the following improvements have been made to the tracker in the last couple of months:

  • Collages added. Now all the similar movies can be grouped together.
  • Hit N Run script implemented – Official requirements to avoid a HnR now are seeding till a ratio of 1 or seeding for 72 hours.
  • New ways to earn credits   -
    • Every week a random torrent will be selected, and credits will be given to the seeders and leechers of that torrent.
      • Every Seeder - 250 Credits
      • Every Leecher - 100 Credits
    • IRC Credits - Random contests will be held thrice a day @ IRC and credits will be awarded to the winners.
    • Uploader of the month - The person with most uploads in a month will be rewarded with 2500 credits.
    • Lottery - A Lottery system will be introduced to give out credits to lucky members every month.
  • A brand new IRC server - at irc.bit-united.com supporting port 6667 or SSL port 6697

Improvements aside, it’s great to see BU still maintaining the request fill ratio we spoke of earlier. It now stands at ‘Requests Filled : 146 of 154 (94.81%)’ which is pretty awesome for any tracker.

As mentioned at the start of this article, BiT-UNiT3D is currently open for signups. The site’s current user limit has been raised to 3000 which leaves more than 1000 free slots remaining.

    @ashwin
    Maintaining a ratio is not hard on the site, because you can alwas download a release from HD-UNiT3D DDL forum and then upload it to the tracker.

    Why making a DDL forum invite only ?!

    I don't get it...I'm trying hard but, I don't get it, seriously....

    This site has some great quality encodes while maintaining a small file size.

    I disagree with the previous poster's opinions that it's hard to maintain a ratio. There are plenty of freeleech torrents (9 out of the 25 latest torrents are freeleech), and there's a seeding bonus system. I've had no problem maintaining a decent ratio from my home connection which is only 1mbit up.

    Unique content with great quality... I give this one two thumbs up!
