Unzbin Review

Update Nov 2012: Unzbin is no more – if you are looking for a free USENET newsreader then we suggest you take a look here for starters our list of the best USENET newsreaders >> http://usenetreviewz.com/best-usenet-clients/<< and choose among them (there are many free options)

 

If you like Usenet but have felt that Usenet is either too complicated or you have felt like spending the money on a good newsreader and especially if you like utorrent client and wish there was something similar for Usenet, then you are in luck. Unzbin to the rescue!

Unzbin promises to potentially revolutionize Usenet downloading. The Unzbin client focuses on one thing and one thing only and does it very well — NZB file downloading and processing and best of all its free.Even if you have already paid for a Usenet client , you might still enjoy unzbin.  Unzbin is light years ahead of grabit and alt.binz in our opinion.

Unzbin is VERY similar to the utorrent client which as a former programmer, I find a coding masterpiece. These guys a Unzbin have done their job well  – the Unzbin client is lightweight, easy to use and appear to be continuously improved. I have had it running for a few days and already noticed an update.

 

 

Pricing

 

Unzbin is free !! Definitely check our their software even if you already have a preference for newsbin or newsleecher you might find you like Unzbin.

 

Usenet Search

 

Unzbin does not offer a Usenet search function. As mentioned, they focus on one thing and do it very well.

Unzbin supports the NZB format 100%. Their client is written specifically to support NZB file downloading and extraction.

Unzbin is windows only and based on the Dot Net platform. No word yet of a mac or linux version.

Conclusion

Check out our list of the best USENET newsreaders >> http://usenetreviewz.com/best-usenet-clients/<< and choose among them

 

Run and don’t walk to download Unzbin. Its up there with Newsbin and Newsleecher in terms of NZB file download and extraction of NZB capability

    ive been trying this software for around 4 days now and ive downloaded around 2 items.
    However everything i have downloaded has been broken and quickpar reports it needs xxx more blocks.
    This has happened with EVERY download Ive made.

    I went into forte agent and tried downloading the same files and they downloaded fine with no missing blocks.

    so its a nice compact prog but unfortunately, totally useless

    Hmm I never had that happen to me .. I used to use it all the time but I havent in the last few weeks.

    If you are going to make the investment in Usenet then you might want to buy a Newsbin – just a one time free, Newsleecher $3/month

    I havent used forte agent although that used to be the best program like 8 years ago but was replaced by Newsbin and Newsleecher..

    Anyways Unbin is free — another free and very popular one is http://usenetreviewz.com/sabnzbd-review/

    Suggestion: When a DL is missing pieces, PAUSE all other DL’s (right click, then pause). This will prompt the program to validate, repair using PAR files, and extract immediately — or fail, and then, well… find another nzb, a more recent one hopefully.

    If you keep dropping nzb’s on the app, it will always download first, hoping to deal with the mess later.

    New user using Astraweb, failure rate ~10% with this client, but that’s with only one failure which was 90+ days old.

    Considering how ridiculously easy this app makes life compared to 10 years ago when last I spent time on the usenet, well… Oh yeah, the failure rate on my ancient isp back-in-the-day was like 30%, with few posts using PAR files (yeah they where around back then pups, but rare)

    Besides, here I know the crc/file transfer failed. In the past, I had the joy of playing 2/3 through a flic before finding the file is corrupt.

    This is a great app, but def needs a solid nntp service to work well.

    Good data in = Good data out

    It’s just that simple.

    Funny Bob. I have used this program to download hundreds of files. While some did say there was an error, I was able fix most of those manually. I downloaded 96 files yesterday ranging from 14 mb to 19 gb and only 1 failed. So you can use your 8-year-old program and I’ll use my up to date one.
