Hi all, i've recently discovered newsgroups after wanting an alternative to torrents (which i am trying to stop using for various reasons).
At the moment im on a free trial from giganews. Still haven't quite got to grips with everything, but my first download was a game ISO that i just got an NZB for.
Im very impressed with the speeds i managed to get a 4gb game in just over and hour, not terribly impressed with the giganews price though. Can anyone suggest a cheaper news server? I dont nee SSL and 10 connections is plenty (i think), not sure i need unlimited quite yet, 25gb or so should do me for now.
Also, im using grabIt which is ok, however are there any other free clients that anyone can recommend?
As i said im still not completely up to scratch on everything usenet, so id like to ask what is the best method for downloading games, both new releases and some slightly older games. Are NZBs the best way to go? Any good websites to get them from? Or is there another way i am missing.
Any info/advice would be really useful as at the moment im pretty much a newsgroup noob. Thanks
