The tracker has excited some time. But is still active and can compete with the other trackers. It provides large amounts of files and still have good pre-times. The community and forums are strong and active. The design of this tracker is very exchanger because for every celebration throughout the year the staff will surely change the design. For example, when is Christmas time you'll see many snow flakes falling on the monitor and for Easter many bunnies will delight your eyes. A torrent is only active for 42 days before being deleted. However the tracker keeps packages and collections that are several years old.
All torrents in packs are freeleech. They are maked with [F L] after the releasename of the torrent.
The packs range from music over games to movies and tv. With over 1500 packs you're gonna have a hard time running out of entertainment any time soon. As of lately the TV- and movies-section is also getting more and more HD-packs. To top it all the great speed also covers these amazing pack-sections.
They also have decembers christmas advent calendar, with 24 packages.
They do not have an invite system on Torrentbytes, but accounts are automatically deleted, so keep trying the signup. (Accounts are deleted due to inactivity after 42 days).

Ratings & Personal Commentary:
Torrent availability: 7/10
Forum : 8/10
IRC activity: N/A
The server is located in Stockholm, Sweden and it is certainly the reason the tracker has good speed and pre-times. However, it is not as popular as Sceneaccess (SCC) Review , IPTorrents (IPT) Review and TorrentLeech (TL) Review. On the other hand it is easy to seed back and keep the ratio 1 +. The tracker could satisfy the average user, not least because of the many packages.
