I have used NZBPlanet, NZBGeek and NZBTortuga within the last two years, Tortuga appears to be the best; BUT, and a huge one, Geek is $20 for life, not an annual subscription, I pulled the trigger and switched to Geek a year back, do I regret it? No, it is $20 for LIFE!!! Am I grumpy occasionally when I find Geek's content to be somewhat lacking as compared to the other two, yes. Am I considering paying for a basic annual subscription to Tortuga to supplement Geek, yes. Planet is better than Geek, but when I had it running parallel with Tortuga, Tortuga usually came back with better results.

Two things to add:
1. Using the public torrents is riskier & not always reliable.
2. Private trackers require ratios. Not a huge deal, but if you’re just using a computer you occasionally have on, it’s impossible to keep it at the usual 1:1 ratio without paying.

i used to too! but when things are not coming up in search (like *********), then they are not accessible to me.. that is when the private list started to popping up everywhere. i was like "screwed that", and went for those public paid online storage sites.

I had a sub to dog but will not be renewing. People used to rave about it, but they offer nothing more than the other few that I use. I'm all for unlimited API access but I'm giving dog a pass on the sub....unless it comes up for dirt cheap.

How much is Tortuga? Looks like they're opening up registrations again later today...

I use this and dognzb, I find that sometimes content (especially older stuff) is better on dognzb but I primarily search on nzbgeek.

I did a 1 year nzbgeek membership when I setup my server, I'll probably get the lifetime sub now.

Are these just indexers are actual usenet servers?

I use NZBPlanet (~$7/year for VIP) and use data blocks (as opposed to subscriptions). I have about 1 TB of data on Usenet.farm and about 2TB on Newsgroup Direct (purchased whenever they go on sale). Seems to work okay for myself (not really a "power user" setup though).

Manual versus Automation, all comes down to how much time you have.

nzbgeek unlimited seems good, I'll probably get it. I've never used nzbplanet, looks like it's invite only. I am looking for an invite, anyone have?

Does anyone use a Synology NAS w/ this? I recently upgraded to 1Gb but I can never get speeds beyond maybe 150Mb. Its not slow by any means but I wouldn't mind knowing if anyone else has had experience with it.

As to people asking about Usenet vs Torrent. After I made the switch years ago its never let me down. Very seldom do I get a show that doesn't come out promptly. I even have cable but the library management of Usenet and Kodi is by far the best experience I have ever had.

The only pain I have w/ Kodi is getting 5.1 working on my Shield.

Thanks. I've been using geek for a few years. My sub doesn't end until October 2019, but this is too hot to pass up.

I know nothing about that software, but you shouldn't be never paying for usenet client/downloader. Spend your money on service providers and indexers.
Opensource will always be better in every way (support, documentation, features). Opensource also runs independent of OS. You need to read more on sabnzbd, nzbget.
