Technical Details

The index on this site is updated every ten minutes, providing fast access to NZBs as they become available. The developers are still growing the site and their attention appears to be applied equally to the indexing features and the community features.The site’s indexer is referred to as GeekSeek.

The developers are more concerned with the community than they are with being the largest NZB indexing site out there. If you want to network with people, this might be a good NZB site to consider.

When last checked, the site was running on a 4-CPU server with 2GB of memory. It provides a 100MB pipe. The hardware is located outside of the US.


Ad-free and allowing open registration, NZBGeek is attractive right from the start. This NZB indexer really concentrates on fostering a sense of community among members. It updates its indexes every ten minutes and has numerous filtering options.

The membership options are inexpensive and offer a lot in the way of increased access to site features. This site isn’t trying to be the biggest NZB indexer out there—and it’s not—but it does have some very nice features built into it and the people behind it seem to be genuinely interested in constantly improving what they have. The site provides value for the money in both the forums and the indexer.

    Wow, this must have been written awhile ago. Site has about 20,000 members now. They have a private VIP server that has some cool features and are developing more. The VIP indexer updates every 17 seconds. I think they may have change a bit since this was written. Very cool place, great people and help at the drop of a hat. I am new to usenet and went there knowing completely nothing. Can’t say enough about the service I have received.

    I’ve used a bunch of different nzb indexers since nzbmatrix died and can vouch for nzbgeek as being one of the best by far. If someone is looking for the best nzbmatrix alternative then nzbgeek is the best choice. They have an awesome community, great service that works smoothly with sickbeard, sabnzbd, couchpotato, etc. They offer free service public along with paid “VIG” which is more then worth it. Check them out, I’ve been a member since January and can vouch that they are solid.

    I am not sure what was wrong with my previous comment, but it is still awaiting moderation. I came back to check on it, because the world needs to know about this place. I am so thankful to have found it. I took a chance on VIG, figured after all the money I have wasted on the rest to be disappointed, the $6 was nothing. Well, really glad I didn’t give up. Somebody out there somewhere had to know what they were doing and have some ethic. NZBgeek is that place. And that review is really outdated.

    You may like to consider redoing this review now, as they have released GeekSeek, it’s all very different and incredible.

    There is no listing of the groups indexed by the site and that is not offered before registration. Isn’t that a bit BOGUS?

    NZBGeek is a hot mess, but it’s also a very good indexer with a ton of content. Unlike every other indexer, it has a (unique?) character all of its own, which might not be for everyone. It’s not the best looking site, but it’s my go-to backup if my primary doesn’t have what I’m looking for.

    Don’t bother getting a free account. It’s not possible to download anything with a free account.

    Site is great however the captcha is crap. It blocks me for skipping pictures that I cannot make out. The pics are to small to see the details. I cannot get to the site and thus cannot contact them. My only recourse is to have my credit card refund my money. I belong to another site which does not use the captcha crap. I guess I learned a lesson. Captcha is shit. You can expect the site to block you half of the time. And that you will have to jump through captcha hoops each and every time you access the site. Not worth it, there are better choices.
