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.
NZB Tortuga NZB Tortuga
NZB Files : 2000K Alexa Rank : 1311528 Members : 100 Price : $6/Yr Platform : Newznab+
NZB Tortuga is new NZB site as of November 2016 with good server hardware and a solid plan for membership. According to the site admin, they don't want to be the biggest indexer on the net and will go to invite only once a desired number of users is met.

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.

Popular Vbulletin based discussion forum FileSharingTalk has an NZB site section. The NZB section is mostly human edited and so typically FilesharingTalk will have less selection but better quality when compared to your typical Newznab site. $10/Yr will get you some private torrent site invites in addition to unlimited access to their NZB site list.

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.

6Box offers a very generous free membership. The site has a very retro, green-on-black look to it but, if that’s a bit too old-school for you, there are two other variations you can use. Good choice. Check them out.

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.

NZBId is not your typical NZB site. Yes, they run Newznab and they make their index public but they don't try to push memberships. Instead they try to promote other USENET services/products. You can download some NZB files without registering however. Their NZB index is not updated as frequently as other NZB sites.
