• Top 5 Downloaders for Usenet NZB Files

    Each internet user who loves Usenet network and uses it for downloading of binary content has his favourite Newsreaders, Usenet providers, NZB search engines and other related tools. For users who have low experience I made a list of some services for the fast start. Below is the list of Top 5 Nzb downloading services available for Usenet. Before you start make sure that you understand what NZB file, Newsreader and NNTP is.

    1. Sabnzbd.com

    SABnzbd is a totally free open source Newsreader for downloading of binaries from Usenet network. The application makes downloading from Usenet as simple and convenient as possible. All you have to do is to find an .nzb file through any external NZB indexing service. If you are not sure which Usenet search engine is better to use then check the list here. After you import Nzb file into SABnzbd the binary content will be automatically downloaded, verified, repaired, extracted and filed away with zero human interaction. To make it work you will need is a Usenet NNTP account that costs money. You can use anyone of your choise. You can also get detailed information about most popular here. Sabnzbd is available for Windows, Mac, Linux and other OS.

    2. NZBLord.com

    For people who search an easy all-in-one solution of a Nzb downloader with already integrated NNTP access is NZBlord the best service to start with. All you need is to register an account and you will be able to start downloading. If you wish a highspeed downloading then you can order a premium account at their site. Simple use and fast start are advantages of NZBLord, no availability to use your external NNTP account is a disadvantage. Under "New Task" you will be able to import Nzb file from URL, your PC or just with adding the content of the file. This will start downloading. Because it's online service it can be used with all browsers and operation systems.

    3. SuperNZB

    SuperNZB is another one downloader for NZB files. The software is available for Windows and Mac OS X. With configured NNTP access you will be able to open your NZBs, download from your Usenet server, and automatically run PAR and RAR to extract the files.

    4. GetNZB

    GetNZB is a downloader that was created as application for Windows. Once it's installed to your PC all Nzbs will be assotiated with the software and can be downloaded through it directly. GetNZB has already integrated NNTP access that can be ordered as premium account. After registration every user gets free 1 GB of highspeed traffic, after it's used you will be stil able to download files for free but with limited rather low speed. The software is a good solution for those who would like to get to know Usenet better and to start fast.

    5. NewsBin

    Newsbin is an excellent Usenet newsreader that is dedicated to downloading binary content. Newsbin was actually one of the first systems that offered a dedicated binary content download facility of Usenet. Newsbin Pro (paid membership!) downloads files from Usenet Newsgroups as fast as your internet connection will allow. It automatically combines complicated multi-part binary posts to create one file and includes many options for organizing your downloaded files. If you want to download files from Usenet with a minimum of hassles, Newsbin is the tool for you.

    The list was created for users who would like to make a fast start and to get to know Usenet in easy and convenient way. More experienced users please don't judge my list hard ;-)

      No mention of Alt.binz? It's been my client of choice for any Windows based system for a long time.

      As a download tool, newsleecher is better than Newsbin, much better standard UI.
      The supersearch with newsleecher has been broken for a long time though.

      Why ya gotta mention all about registering accounts and paying for high-speed downloads? Plenty of FREE NON_HAVING_TO_REGISTER software exists. I agree with stryk about Alt.binz, though it never worked with WIn7 for me it was fantastic. Now I use GrabIt - very easy to setup and use.

      Most of them have subscription so this is basically for advertising purposes. Surprised not mentioned altbinz, usenet explorer, newsleecher

      Newsleecher is my favorite. Supersearch works just fine for me. It's an awesome feature!
