SABnzbd Is very cool

Positive Comment by usenetreviewz
about SABnzbd and NewsBin Sep 2012

From what we see via people searching throughout our website. SABnzbd seems to be one of the most popular newsreader. Also worth mentioning are the newshosting newsreader http://usenetreviewz.com/newshosting-newsreader-review/ and the Newsbin ( not to be confused with newzbin - the nzb site )

Best Usenet software I've used

Positive Comment by thepoet
about SABnzbd Sep 2011

Tried Grabit for a while and a few other Usenet programs, then stumbled upon Sabnzbd. Was a bit of a learning curve to set up, but once it's running it works flawlessly.
Great integration with your web browser (I use Chrome) if you want to be able to click on downloads in say nzbmatrix and send them directly to Sabznbd to download using an extension called SABconnect++.
Highly recommended.

about SABnzbd Jun 2011

I've used countless binary newsreaders in both Linux and Windows environments. There's no question about it; SABnzbd takes the cake. The web interface is great for everything from simple download management, all the way to detailed setting configuration. The automation alone makes this program stand out in the crowd. The only effort required by the user is downloading the desired .nzb file. With SABnzbd add-ons for Firefox and extensions for Chrome now available, one mouse-click is all it takes before your browser detects the link and SABnzbd begins downloading. As soon as the download is complete, SABnzbd handles all PAR verification, file repair/recovery, and extraction automatically.
