I checked out SabNZB.. can't say I like the web interface. I like Grabit for the fact I can download the .nzb, it will auto open Grabit, and I can see each part download.

I use Sabnzbd, pretty powerful for my needs. I may recommend Unzbin for someone new to Usenet, but probably not what you're looking for.

Surprised no one has mentioned Newzleecher. Is it not considered one of the big boys these days?

Alt.Binz, which is now free the latest version, and SabNZBd.

With Newsleecher coming in at a close third.

i also use Sabnzbd. Nothing else comes close for actual downloading. As for discovery its all about Sickbeard and CouchPotato. Hardly ever have to manually search for something!

I actually love the web interface of SABnzbd as it is clean and fast. GrabIt seemed just far too buggy at times for my liking!

Best client hands down is SABnzbd+. My provider is Aastraweb. As for NZBs themselves I use a range of sites; Binsearch.info, NZBsRus & Yabse. The first and last you'll need the exact file names for what you are looking for though ;)

Yes I also use Astraweb as my Usenet provider and download via their SSL server connection.

I have heard that Giganews is also quite good and you get online storage and a VPN service bundled with your account also :)

Yes that is quite correct. Their service is good but they're one of the most DMCA'd host so I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I am assuming that you are talking about Giganews as I was just making another suggestion for the benefit of others, as my primary is still Astraweb which has served me well!

No mentions of Newsbin Pro yet? OK... http://www.newsbin.com/ Been using it for years and love it enough to have actually paid for it. Great for downloading stuff with my Astraweb account, automatically handles RARs too which is handy. It's also very regularly updated, and it's easy to get hold of the developer on their forums too.
