    Transmission is the way to go.
    Its got a nice clean (somewhat customizable) interface, fairly lightweight, and does what you want.

    Two more that may do:
    Xtorrent
    Azureus (although it takes up space, and is written in java, making it slow)

    another vote for transmission.
    I run azureus on my PC, but stay away from the new version, it's all bogged down with content running on your home page.

    Xtorrent is great, but Transmission is free.
    Can't beat that

    I noticed this thread the other day and downloaded Transmission. It's GREAT. Light on system resources, super easy interface, and yeah FREE is awesome

    I love how Transmission automatically resizes according to the torrents displayed. Really saves a lot of space.

    I used Azureus on my PC but i tried it on my Mac and I couldn't get anything to download. I use Transmission and it runs great.

    I'm using Bits on Wheels.. It has great arrangement of all needed fields. But haven't tried Transmission yet, so I can't compare
