    I looked up some basic movies and all I saw was very old stuff from 30 years ago, absolutely NOTHING current, at least nothing in the last 20 years..LOL, its clear this site is not maintained.

    The tortuga site claims all of the many NZBs’ available. The reality is half the time site does not work. Easily half of the NZBs i accessed returned no data. Would it hurt to confirm files before making available to public. The files which return no data, creates some interesting problems for news readers. Once they have you they are reluctant to let go. The site has some nice features, but the downsides seriously overwhelm the good. The promise of server upgrades, for me, came a year too late. Good Luck

    Overall – their service is terrible compared to other sites I’ve used.

    Frequently have to wait >24hrs for a popular show to become available. Meanwhile, I can manually search and find it within a few hours of it airing with other services I have: nzbplanet or nzbgrabit, both are far superior.

    Contrary to this review’s claims, it is also frequently down for maintenance. It seems this site just pings the site to see if it is “online” but for at least the last 7hrs it’s displayed a maintenance page. If the other services go completely down for maintenance, I haven’t seen it. I’ll never subscribe to tortuga again.
