    Ok, I have always used binsearch.info to search newsgroups, and it has done quite well for me. I've also tried some of the indexing sites listed on the sticky.

    Where else can you search for stuff?

    Reason i'm asking, the new harry potter 1080p rip nzb was posted here, but I cant find it on any of my indexing sites... So where would I have found it if it wasn't listed here, besides just waiting of course? Obviously it was listed somewhere, since it was posted here...

    The best in my opinion is newsleecher's SuperSearch.
    Other than that I use manually indexed sites like FST, or NZBindex, which somehow I prefer to binsearch.

    Hmm, yea, don't actaully want to pay for a search option.. Figured the easiest thing to do would be to ask whoever posted that nzb where they found it, but I didn't think posting a question like that in the comments would be a good idea...

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Huh, if you are referring to newsleecher's SuperSearch, the version(s) available at FST both "offer" free access to this tool.

    NZBIndex isn't manually indexed, it's an automated indexer like binsearch...
    And I've been back to using it over binsearch these days

    Big thanks for the heads up. I didn't know those releases had that extra "feature."

    And I usually find out about new releases from trackers (SCC, GFT, etc.) and then look them up on MysterBin, NZBIndex or NZBs.org. It's just easier for me that way.

    Yea, me too. I browse the trackers daily and grab what I see from newsgroups. Although the past 2 movies I got I had to finish via torrents, because even after repairing, there were 2 rars that had 1 missing piece each... wierd...
