Merlins Portal Review
Merlin’s Portal is another popular NZB indexing provider. Merlin’s portal is now closed for good as of April 2012. For other NZB sites / NZB forums check out list of top NZB sites here.
They go offline sometimes and for a while they were linked in a round about way to another Nzb Portal site but now in October 2010, they are back online Not much to explain their absence but it could be related to the UK’s Newzbin trial.Here is what Merlins Portal says on their website ( October 2010 ) In the few days we have re opened we have took in 1000’s of new/old members & 1000’s of NZB files as we rebuild or NZB library. Good reputation is why we succeeded before and why we will again and why 1000’s use us then and now.
Hopefully see you on the other side and not just as a guest.
Free. Relies on donations
Merlin’s Portal has a Watchdog like feature simliar to Newzbin where you can search for new Usenet binaries with your search phrase. Saved searches, filters and release watcher function.
however sometimes they are down and have issues with files and retention also at other times. That said, when they work it is great. We like how they use forum based software and we like the community. Merlins Portal asks that you please consider donating if you use the site on a daily basis.
