So I signed up for the 7 day trial.Using Newsleecher, I decided to try and re-grab an 11GB file set that had errors all over the place and "Article Not Found" errors when I used Astraweb earlier. It was failing RAR checks as well.Well, using Usenetbucker this time, I have a total of 0 errors, or missing articles found!. Everything downloaded flawlessly (and faster actually) maxing my 152MB line. And RAR reported no file errors whatsover.So, it looks like I may be switching to this UsenetBucket afterall, and cancelling Astraweb. Thanks for this info.Oh by the way , if you look in Control Panel of your UseNetBucket account, you will find a 20% off promotion to all new signups!.
Thanks for posting this useful info!
I tested out the trial and must say it was absolutely flawless! no errors, missing or broken files! The 20% promo discount is also there to use. It's weird though, it says only 5GB traffic on the free trial but I managed to go upto 26gb lol after that it wouldn't let me continue downloading.
I still have my astraweb account running, well its paid for till next month anyway so ill use that up and go for a package with usenetbucket. In the meantime I did cancel my subscription on paypal with astraweb just to make sure they don't take any more money out.
Been with them for over 8 years and everytime they still ask for an order number jeez as if I know that by heart, just look up my email add ya numpties! Glad I am finally leaving them.
Generally OK for me - have had problems with incompletes but seems to have improved just recently

I use the SuperSearch facilitiy within Newsleecher for this.
