    Question Mark

    Anybody have any idea when they're coming back or what the status is?
    All I see when I click posts is "disabled (temp)" and their forums are not working for me either.

    There is no way binsearch is better than newzleech.

    binsearch misses A LOT of content and indexes slower than newzleech. So much so that I deleted my bookmark altogether for that site.

    I can't comment on nzbindex as I've never used it.

    Newzleech is almost flawless though.

    I use to use newzleech all the time...but they suck now...i always search filenames and newzleech hardly ever shows results on filenames anymore for some reason...nzbindex is the best try it

    I dont know...maybe they fixed the newzleech problems b/c their site crashed at one point and i stopped using it after i started having problems

    EDIT: I just checked real quick and seems to be finding new posts of filenames well but old still no good

    heres one example searching filename syn-orese for wii game Offroad_Extreme_Special_Edition_USA_WII-SYNDiCATE

    heres newzleechs...no result

    https://www.newzleech.com/?group=&mi...m=search&adv=2

    heres nzbindexs result...finds the game

    http://www.nzbindex.com/search/?q=sy...espam=1&more=0

    One more example searching filename vor-potcawe for wii game Pirates_of_the_Carribbean_At_Worlds_End_NTSC_Wii-VORTEX

    heres newzleech...no results once again

    https://www.newzleech.com/?group=&mi...m=search&adv=2

    herez nzbindexs results...finds it once again

    http://www.nzbindex.com/search/?q=vo...espam=1&more=0


    Those are just 2 examples...there are no doubt countless others...newzleech is just not reliable anymore

    That's really a damn shame that Newzleech isn't what it once was. I just hope that it's just a few problems the siteops have to work out and it will eventually return in all its glory.

    In the meantime, I'll use NZBIndex though. Thanks fellas.

    That's just madness.

    Newzleech is fine. Who searches for "syn-orese" when they're looking for the game 'Offroad Extreme Special Edition'? Seriously...just search the title.

    http://newzleech.com/?group=&minage=...&m=search&adv=

    Or "vor-potcaw" when looking for 'Pirates of the Carribbean At Worlds End'?

    Yay, viruses. w00t!

    I have to agree with dutchmaster420, NewzLeech has gone downhill. Plus, he is right, anyone who is good at searching will often use filenames.

    It so easy to skip those .exe files...and why does no one mention bintube? They are pretty damn good.
