The High Definition Bittorrent Community
HDBits is on of the best bittorrent trackers specializing in high definition content. Content includes scene HD releases, user encodes (such as EsiR, CtrlHD, DON & EbP) and media sources (Blue-Ray and old HD DVD).
Invites are permanently closed, however staff do retain the power to hand out invites.
Downloads only are 75% counted and downloading full Blue Ray releases only count 50% down so keeping a good ratio is not too hard. Further the bonus system allows you gain about 300 gb upload each year if you do not have a "good" connection. Though the seedability is debatable, the forum has many threads about getting harder to seed as most users have seedboxes (and a lot of users do have multiple boxes).
This is the bonus points page
First Episodes in a seasons are freeleech and torrents chosen by staff, again this helps those struggling with their ratio.
Speeds: This tracker has one of the best speeds (Can sustain around 15mbps on new and old torrents) however since anyone can practically upload you may get a seeder with a low up speed, though after this initial period speeds are fantastic.
Content: I have not come across a HD tracker with similar content, to my knowledge this is, simply the best HD tracker.
Community: The forums are very active and everyone is willing to help. Any new user should read the HD Wiki which is very helpful for HD noobs. 8/10
