2013 Best NZB Site
In this category we take many things into account. Among them are the retention searchable, (how far back you can search, in days,) speed of search, library size, filters and functions, and ease of use. There are also a lot factors considered subjective, because no two peoples’ personal preferences are alike. And, (perhaps because of these subjective preferences,) our Voting Staff came up with a three-way tie, and no matter what we did, it couldn’t be resolved. So the teams at nzb.su, nzbx.co, and usenet-crawler.com should stand up and take a bow, you have all done a great job.
A Three Way Tie?
The last year has seen some really great NZB search indexes go down. But, at UsenetReviewz we held that for every NZB index that was taken off-line, there would be at least one, or two to jump in and try to fill in for the loss. Here’s a little bit about each of the search indexes, just to explain a little about our dilemma…
- Nzb.su – An outstanding site with that will search 900 days of retention, has a lot of filters, API integration with many Newsreaders and downloaders, and RSS feed. The down side, they have changed their policy to an invitation only basis. Invites are a little difficult to get, and are rare, but if you get one, this is a great NZB indexer.
- Nzbx.co – Technically, these guys are trying to lead the industry. It’s not a Newsnab platform, but in a very short time they have indexed millions of NZBs and boast more than 100,000 registered members. Nzbx,co is completely free to use and register. And in spite of the costs, free members enjoy all the same features, and retention that donating members receive.
- Usenet-Crawler – This site operates on the Newsnab platform, and like Nbzx.co, has added millions of NZBs in a very short time. The site is completely free, though the owner does make BFFs of the members donating more than $10. A BFF will get SABnzbd integration, my cart, ratings, access to the forums, and a few other little percs. Because of Paypal restrictions, this payment medium isn’t accepted, but Bitcoin, EgoPay, and Liberty Reserve are all acceptable.
Congratulations And A DoubleThumbs-Up
So, as you can see, we really had a long day when we discussed this award. Even though Nzb.su is by invitation only, the comprehensiveness and depth of this index gets them in here. But they better be careful. Nzbx.co and usenet-crawler.com may be up-starts, but they are coming on fast in their attempt to dominate this area of Usenet.
