NZBPlanet has been around and online since 2012 and traditionally NZBPlanet has had a good selection of NZB files along with a rapid server. Being able to pay for their VIP level service via credit card is nice otherwise Bitcoin is possible. At least check out the free 5 NZB a day plan available to anyone.

    This is just another newznab site. Don’t pay for the membership when you get it free everywhere else.

    This site is taking an age to get itself sorted
    Loads of passworded nzb’s coming through and very few newsgroups indexed
    that mixed in with poor backfilling on most groups means I would advise you wait before signing up for a VIP account

    with there advanced report system there are very few passworded releases,and its also not just a newznab site the host has modded it loads making it best nzb site ive found since the matrix i recommend to anyone to join and see what they have to offer 🙂

    Found this site and cant express how bad it is.

    Firstly its slow and very slow at indexing to the point the files aren’t on the server by the time it indexes them!

    I also upgraded to VIP that gave me no extra features and also took them days to upgrade me with me emailing to ask when I would get upgraded, one of the Admins was very rude and threatening.

    I put in a dispute with PayPal and promptly they sent me abusive and threatening emails and threatened killing of my children!.

    I forwarded all the info I could to the police just in case anything did happen.

    There are a lot better sites out there that are free and more friendly .

    My recommendation is to avoid nzbplanet like the plague and go to a better site like nzbzombie or

    All i can say is come and try the site for yourself and decide if you like it enough to get VIP.

    nzbplanet is coming on very nicely, we have a great user NZB upload feature, as well as newznab is set up to try and retain the better nzb files automatically, all files and forums are moderated to a high standard!

    We are still starting out and yet have loads of members that think what we have and what we are leading to will be great!

    😛 join up now whilst you can it is possible we will go invite only at some point! Grab a membership now…. see you there 🙂

    nzbplanet started out as a good indexer but in the mean time 07.2013 it seems they do no password checks and also no 100% completion checks anymore,
    really a shame, will quit soon.. 🙁

    I like this site but whenever I’m on it, I seem to fart more than usual. I’m not sure what is causing this.

    This site can be PAINFULLY slow at times, seemingly all times of the day. When Matrix got shut down it served as a good temp replacement but I will not be renewing my yearly “fee” to download more than 10 NZBs a day. Perhaps if they used the VIP fees to improve their servers, improve the site it would be worth it.

    I have been with the site since ‘the matrix’ went down. It had its issues but lately it has been an acceptable alternative. They have gotten much better with the passworded archives and a growing community helps to flag potential viruses. All in all they are one of the better sites available now.
