Downloading site

Looking to sign up for one for my needs,

I've been looking at the likes of GigabitDownloads, Hotfile, Rapidshare and Megaupload for the premium membership.

Anybody got any recommendation on which are good?

Or am I better off going with a NZB?

Cheers

hotfile 6.99 a month auto-renews found out the hard way d'oh
rapidshare is slightly cheaper and depending on how much you download could work out better ive had 3 months out of one purchase of a 6quid subscription but im not a serial downloader just some things if they take my interest just got into dexter recently and it was cool to be able to dl episodes in about 10 mins from rs , but the problem i finid most is when i buy an account the thing i want is on a different site

Yeah see thats what I worried about, signing up for one, then the stuff I want being on another site.
Ten minutes is good though man.

I've been using torrents for a while now, and they take a while tbf

Depends what files are hosted on what site.

I know the two big ones are Sharingmatrix aka Filesonic and Hotfile, Rapidshare has been getting ever so smaller due to their policy change.

its cool because if im watching one episode i can have the next one unzipped and use my media centre to stream it to my ps3 i suspect this slows my net a bit due to the extra traffic between the ps3 and laptop because when im not streaming its faster what i usually do before buying an account is have a look at what i what and where its hosted if theres enough on one site then thats what i pick although rapidshare has been the one i have bought most over the past few years, ive never had any complaints about limits but a lot of other people do i guess it just depends on the quality of things you want , i still dont buy the whole hd revolution as long as the people dont look like kryten from red dwarf im usually happy

I ditched rapidshare after they nicked all my rapid points a few months back when they went mental and decided to shoot themselves in the head. Moved over to megaupload not had any complaints so far.

ive shunned mu because of the stupid video time restriction on megavideo not a gret reason but they are usually generous enough on mu that ive never needed an account

warezbb is a good place of you have a rapidshare account! alot of the hotfile and fileserve stuff seems to work ok without an account for me!? downloaded quite a lot from there!
#10
Yea i use warez.bb and MU I don't pay for it at the min, which means you can only download on file at a time, but download speeds are between 500k and 700k
#11
use Usenet and Astraweb. Full Speed Encrypted Downloads all the time.
Altbinz Free Usenet Downloader - Auto Unrar also
banned#12
I use NZB and astraweb, quickpar, grabbit Full Speed Encrypted Downloads


paid £15 for 180GB 6 months ago and still got 50GB left (probably download 15 tv eps and 5 films per week).

monthly subs just arent worth it unless you are gonna download terabytes

NZBmatrix $10 one off payment.
Astraweb 180GB pay as you go $25 (it was 110GB when i got mine about 2 years back and still have 50GB left)
Altbinz or Grabit both free, both do SSL

currently using NZB and going through the virgin media usenet server,
not sure if thats a good idea though tbh


would I be getting quicker speeds using a paid for one?

not a good idea to use VM servers for DL'ing films / music

Always use SSL for copyrighted stuff

I use MU on a premium account and get speed of about 1700k-1900k much faster and you can download multiple item to.

I used to use Rapidshare all the time but since the policy change haven't used them much and I notice neither do a lot of uploaders. I use Hotfile for the most part but I find strangely they are throttled on evenings and weekends but I can get past this by using megaupload and fileserve limited free traffic as an alternative.
