I am curious.

Anyone have any tips on what to do, how it works etc?

Cheers

you download the client software,in the settings you put your server details(this is all quite straightforward),then when you search for a file on the usual sources and click "get nzb",it downloads to your hardrive,you then extract the rars to create the file and burn it to a disc or a memory stick or just watch on the PC. you need to download a free program called "quickpar" to repair broken files(hardly ever needed tbh),and also have winrar installed.

Do you use them Barky? Would you recommend it?

Are there any 'free' alternatives?

I use them yes,and I would highly reccommend-obviously the "free alternatives" are torrents,but newsgroups are LIGHTNING fast,ssl secure,you ARENT file sharing like torrents-you dont upload to other people-hypothetically speaking,because obviously downloading films/tv shows is naughty,you can get a full tv episode in 3 minutes and a movie in 6.

i use them now over torrents rapidshare etc, i get full spped most of the time except at peak times when my isp throttles my speed. Use altbinz as free newsgroup downloader great program, auto unrars etc .

newsgroups by far the best
If you are with virgin on cable you get free access too (7 day retention)
However they also traffic shape newsgroups now

I use usenet-news.net
The block accounts are excellent for general Usenet access, or there's unlimited quarterly / yearly accounts for those who download a lot.

Ultra-fast !

For a block account (which is what I use), they can't be beaten. The allowance stays in "indefinitely", or until used.
Can't really comment about the quarterly / yearly accounts as haven't had an account like that since leaving Giganews many a year ago.

ok, you have to use it within a year but if you aren't using it within a year you may as well just use torrents
