Review

A comprehensive Usenet downloading tool that works with NZB files, a file format to identify binaries posted to Usenet newsgroups. Downloads the required content directly, without any obstacles like headers. Provides up to 100 simultaneous connections, iTunes integration for multimedia downloads, Par2, unrar, unzip, and split-file assembly, built-in Usenet search as well as multi-server support.

NZB Drop is intended for downloading and opening NZB files, which contain information linking to specific files stored in Usenet newsgroups. Fortunately, the application supports various news servers, such as binsearch.info, newsbin.com, nzbclub.com and UseNet. The tool has a straightforward interface and comes with a help file, which, unfortunately, has some broken links.

To use this tool, you should start by adding servers. In this respect, you should provide a description and the name of the server. Also, in case the server requires authentication, you can enter your username and password. Besides, you can set your preferred usage mode, which can be Normal, Fills Only or Manual Only.

It is great that the application allows not only managing downloads but also performing searches without needing any third-party product. This avoids needing to browse through lots of headers to find what you want. Likewise, you can keep track of the posted NZB files by subscribing to the desired newsgroups. more
