    having been a torrent user for the last 6 months, yesterday I decided to try out Usenet, and am pretty damn impressed so far.

    I chose to use NewsLeecher, and to get to use the Super Search facility, I decided to subscribe (about $3 p/mnth).

    But, found it a real drag when searching, for say, a particular episode of Battlestar and being presented with all the RAR and PAR files, not knowing if I was going to miss a file out, and therefore have an incomplete file.

    So signed up with Newzbin (about $ 2 per month), which is great.

    So, my question is, if I've no need for the SuperSearch with NewsLeecher, should I unsubscribe? Will I lose any other facilities of the program which I'll need.

    We're not talking about a lot of money here, but no point in wasting it.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't pay for Supersearch. Just use binsearch.info or newzleech.com.

    Well, if you think these services are worth it, go ahead. It's your money. I just don't think these search services are much better than free alternatives. Nothing against these payed services. Just not my brand of vodka. I'm sure you understand.

    Exactly. Pay the extra money for Super Search. It presents you with what you want and all you need to do is highlight the files you need, right click and left click leech. It will save you a minute or so each search rather than loading files up on a search site and then creating a NZB file for Newsleecher to use.

    My time is precious because I have ADD, and I have disposable income.

    I think that subscribing to Newzbin.com website access might be well worth the money, since the site offers a lot of features, but paying for Newsleecher's "supersearch" is probably in my opinion a big waste of money because you can get the same thing (and better) for free.

    If you use the free binary grabber software Alt.Binz , it has SEVEN search engines built-in, including Newsleecher's "supersearch". And the best thing is that it is totally free.

    www.altbinz.com

    My own preference is to use the free version of V3.Newzbin.com to look up titles, combined with free search sites like Newzleech.com and Binsearch.info to download the NZB file.
