OmgWtfNZBs focuses on being fast, very fast. They claim to have increased search speed by a factor of eighty, no small thing, especially for very active USENET users. They offer their own, custom interface, but also have an API that’s compliant with Newznab.

GingaDADDY is well designed and, for a relatively low price, you can get unlimited downloads and API calls. The free membership is very limited. GingaDADDY doesn’t require invites, joining is no more difficult than creating a free account and upgrading it. There is plenty of great content in this site’s indexes and they get extra points for keeping SPAM at bay.

NZB.Cat has a very generous VIP membership, but there is currently no option to join for free. The site’s high number of NZBs, 5,000 API calls for VIPs and 1,000 NZB downloads per day for VIPs makes it worth joining. The IRC channel availability should make it easy for novice users to get help as needed.

RedUsenet is slick, easy to use and has great browsing features. Downloading is at the click of a button. If you’ve been a bit put off by the learning curve involved with Newznab sites and downloaders like sabNZBd, give RedUsenet a shot. It’s not for USENET purists, but it’s great for people who don’t mind using USENET in a different way.
