Binsearch is one of the best known search engines for NZB files on the net. You can search for posts that are up to 1100 days old, matching the retention of the top providers (for the best special deals of these services have a look at our homepage). Not a bad site but others often get you better search results with less spam. Also it was very difficult for us to find certain TV series.
They offer these search options:
- Basic search where you pretty much just enter a term, select which groups you want to check and hit search.
- Advanced search where you can define several other features of the file you look for.
- Also you can browse through groups directly which is interesting for nostalgic “senior” Usenet downloaders and newbies alike.
One of the main problems with Binsearch is the huge amount of spam found in search results. Even when they remove some of those malicious posts you get page after page full of “90 results have been filtered out”, leaving you with almost empty result pages. The only way to circumvent this and all the other, unrecognised trash is to use advanced search and define a minimum size since a lot of bad results are really small in opposition to real, quality uploads.
But this doesn’t help when browsing groups. Let’s look at the other features of Binsearch:
You can select whether to only search through the top 500 newsgroups or the other ~ 6000+ smaller ones. Also they group all the little split archives into one result which makes downloads way more handy.
Binsearch is a good site but others are simply better. Also they don’t offer you the best Usenet deals as only two special offers are being advertised. Better look through our reviews. Also if you have problems with your search you might be better off with other search engines such as NZBClub.
