NZBGeek Review

Just when it seemed like NZB sites were dropping off at a startling rate, new sites have come up, offering some great features. NZBGeek hasn’t been available to the public for long, but it has been around enough on a more limited basis to have had a good shakedown cruise and to be ready for the general public.

The Site

NZBGeek is separated into a bulletin board and an USENET indexer. The bulletin board software is based on MyBB and the USENET indexer is based on NewsNab. NZBGeek has been around for approximately 3 months, but only for a small group of people, according to the developers.

NZBGeek membership levels include free or paid. Below are the pricing for paid members:

  • 6 months – $6
  • 1 year – $12
  • 2 years – $18

They accepts payment through PayPal and Bitcoin.


Speed if of the essence with NZB sites. The index at NZBGeek updates every 10 minutes, so it’s not an issue. The site wants to be more than another fast NZB indexer, however.

NZBGeek wants to grow over the next year or so to the point where they have a good membership base that centers on community as much as USENET. The site will, if the developer’s get their way, serve as a “place for likeminded Geeks” to gather and talk about technology. While USENET will obviously be the focus of much discussion, they also want to make a place where people talk about gadgets, technology and other related topics. According to the developers, they’re not so much concerned about being the biggest NZB site out there as they are about being “awesome”.

Among the offerings they plan on extending to members are monthly prizes. The drawings will be available for those who sign up at the Very Important Geek (VIG) level of membership.

Developers and Members

There are currently approximately 133 members on the site. The NZBGeek staff consists of experienced IT experts. The current hardware is a 4CPU, 2GB memory server with plenty of storage that feeds from a 100MB pipe. The NZBGeek developers plan on expanding this as needed to ensure quality of service. They aren’t located in the US.

Membership levels include free or paid. Free membership allows you to download 2 NZBs per 24 hours and doesn’t give you access to the API. You can access the forums. The paid membership costs $1 per month and offers a host of benefits. You can access the API, download unlimited NZBs and invite up to 5 friends to join. You also get access to VIP forums threads, monthly prize drawings and are generally treated like a VIP whenever NZBGeek finds a way to extend that privilege.

Registration is currently open and there is no advertising on the site: “I have always hated that stuff,” said the lead developer. The developer recommends that USENET users find an NZB that fits your budget and that uses SSL. He also recommends that you find one that makes you feel like you’re part of a community, which NZBGeek is trying to foster.

    Wow, this must have been written awhile ago. Site has about 20,000 members now. They have a private VIP server that has some cool features and are developing more. The VIP indexer updates every 17 seconds. I think they may have change a bit since this was written. Very cool place, great people and help at the drop of a hat. I am new to usenet and went there knowing completely nothing. Can’t say enough about the service I have received.

    Go VIG and never look back. Try the demo
    Thanking the Gods of usenet.

    I’ve used a bunch of different nzb indexers since nzbmatrix died and can vouch for nzbgeek as being one of the best by far. If someone is looking for the best nzbmatrix alternative then nzbgeek is the best choice. They have an awesome community, great service that works smoothly with sickbeard, sabnzbd, couchpotato, etc. They offer free service public along with paid “VIG” which is more then worth it. Check them out, I’ve been a member since January and can vouch that they are solid.

    I am not sure what was wrong with my previous comment, but it is still awaiting moderation. I came back to check on it, because the world needs to know about this place. I am so thankful to have found it. I took a chance on VIG, figured after all the money I have wasted on the rest to be disappointed, the $6 was nothing. Well, really glad I didn’t give up. Somebody out there somewhere had to know what they were doing and have some ethic. NZBgeek is that place. And that review is really outdated.

    wow this review is very old..

    I have been a VIG (very important geek) at NZB geek..

    I’m very happy and after trying others… i’m proud to say NZB geek the best out there.. and it is now my only NZB indexer..

    soon NZB geek will be invite only… since we are getting a lot of members..

    And features keep being added so frequently and you will not regret it if you join NZB geek..

    Here, here chaps and the review doesn’t do it justice. This is the place to be.

  7. Gavin on March 25th, 2014

    You may like to consider redoing this review now, as they have released GeekSeek, it’s all very different and incredible.

  8. Marion Marshall on March 28th, 2014

    thanks we will update the review soon

  9. John Dogus on September 26th, 2014

    There is no listing of the groups indexed by the site and that is not offered before registration. Isn’t that a bit BOGUS?

  10. Larry on May 13th, 2015

    Don’t bother getting a free account. It’s not possible to download anything with a free account.
