    Is there a difference in the quantity of releases and speed? Are people with usenet axx missing out on a lot of releases or is it the other way around? I don't have any high level trackers but I do subscribe to newsgroups so I'd like to know what the deal is . Also, I'm referring to 0-day trackers not ones like SweDVDR and E.

    As far as I know some trackers get releases faster than Usenet.

    Advantages of torrents trackers

    -They get releases faster (But maybe by hrs of difference or perhaps minutes in some cases)
    -You probably don't have to pay for it

    Advantages of Usenet

    -Secure connections
    -Most likely faster speeds
    -No ratio to worry about
    -mmmm like 100000x more content

    In my book Usenet is better. You get what you pay for.

    I prefer Torrents, Usenet is no fun is just simply downloading. With a high level torrent site, a great community is also present. Also I seem to get the same speeds in torrents as Usenet.
    ELITE BITTORENT USER SORRY I CANNOT TELL YOU MY TRACKERS THEY ARE OVER LEVEL 9000 AND I AM SWORN TO SECRECY (P.S No traders allowed)

    Most people (like me) could care less about a "community".

    I want files, not a social movement.

    The same NFO comes with the download no matter which method you use.

    Also, there are plenty of NZB sites such as FST where comments can be left in a similar fashion.

    FST is a social movement. Glad you could care less about us. Jerk.
