Thread: Most effective Usenet (nzb) search engine and why?

  1. #1
    I currently use binsearch and nzbclub's search engines and have become increasingly frustrated to find that a high percentage of the TV shows that I DL require passwords. The nzbclub's engine even allows users to rate each DL with a +/- but this feature is rarely used.

    Any suggestions as to how I can verify the quality of the DL before I start a DL would be most appreciated.

    Thanks ...

    i use a combination of
    https://www.binsearch.info/
    and nzbindex.nl

    PA btw nzbclub shows if a post is password protected or its an archive inside an archive

    True but half the posts that show as NOT being PW protected actually are. You find this out AFTER wasting a DL. Thanks for replying.

    Have you read this about Binsearch's new feature that opens and looks inside rar files?

    Another one is mysterbin.com

    And then there is the old fashioned way - opening the first rar to see if it's passworded before committing to the entire file set.

    I've kinda found that nzbindex is probably the most comprehensive/accurate among those mentioned already and a few more. Why may be because it appears that they utilize several major servers as their 'feeds', don't pre-filter things by newsgroup (like newzleech and others), and, just seem to be 'good'.

    Doesn't mean that I don't take a look at several when trying to hone it down to a good nzb, but simply that I've found over the last few months (particularly during the recent Giganews fiasco), it seemed that things there kept very stable.

    I also find NZBIndex to be very comprehensive and easy to use. For a free service this ranks in the top

    I've never had a problem with NZBindex.com, the search function works well in almost all cases and I've never had a passworded file.
