  • It’s likely faster - no waiting for seeds to connect and ramp up. I routinely see 900+Mbps from my provider from start to finish.

    You aren’t at risk of exposing your true IP or downloads list to anyone but your Usenet provider.

    Zero seeding required.

    Older content is more likely to still be available in my experience (and not just with 1 dial-up seeder).

    On occasion I have to go to private trackers when something never made it to Usenet, but it’s almost always something niche like an obscure out of print album. It cuts both ways though, and I’ve found some buried gems on Usenet that weren’t on any tracker.

    The biggest downsides are the monthly cost of a Usenet provider, and a bit more technical expertise to host the NZB grabber.
