Thread: Usenext...heard of it?

  1. #1
    I just saw an ad for this on the internet and was wondering if anyone has tried it. Apparently it connects to 60,000+ newsgroups.

    Haven't heard of them but I wouldn't sign up with them though.
    Don't like it just by looking at their site: http://www.usenext.de/

    And don't be fooled with the 60,000+ newsgroups.
    Yes,there are that many but 59,000+ of them are just useless groups cluttered with spam.

    If you're going for a paid service I suggest you get one of the more known providers.(There's a topic here somewhere with a list of the better newsproviders)
    And if you're really new to newsgroups and aren't sure on how everything works I'd suggest subscribing to a newshost that also offers webbased access to Usenet.
    This way you can browse the groups and dl files through your regular browser 'till you can figure out how to set up your newsreader (although it isn't that hard at all).

    edit:
    And Usenext software.
    The look and feel of that site alone is like a Kazaa scamsite,so I really woulnd't touch it.

    And another thing :

    Their prices!
    9$ a month for 5 gigs
    I pay 9$ for 10 gigs

    And their 'Top Newsgroups' list isn't correct either.
    They're just putting names there of newsgroups that have "interesting" names.

    Their toplist:
    1. a.b.dvd
    2. a.b.erotica
    3. a.b.cd.image.xbox
    4. a.b.cd.image.ps2
    5. a.b.sounds.mp3

    But when I go check the newsgroups with the most articles through my newsprovider it's this:
    1. alt.binaries.boneless (141852 articles)
    2. alt.binaries.multimedia (120719 articles)
    3. alt.binaries.dvd (60324 articles)
    4. alt.binaries.multimedia.erotica (41437 articles)
    5. alt.binaries.dvdr (32104 articles)

    And they don't even say anything about retention and completion on their servers

    Damn,I hate sites like that!

    hmm...asspie

    It does look like a scam site on the layout although may be fine and Im guessing you may have seen this as an eMule advert. Anyway you could just use a well known server like NewsHosting and get unlimited for $14.95 per month...
