Lots of well designed and well implemented features, works like a charm and is easy to use, developer is nice and responsive. I have been using this app for years and didn't look any further ever since, so I cannot compare it to the competition (if there is any at all).

Fantastic NZB client app for Mac. Nothing else seems to come close to NZBVortex's feature set and simple usability. Easy NZB cleanup of junk files + cloud check for passworded or junk NZB's = really great client experience. No crashes, hanging, or bugs. Very lightweight and fast, recommended whole-heartedly for Mac users looking to process .nzb's / Usenet shares

After a lifetime using windows. windows ten was a joke. So I bought my first Apple Mac and went looking for a program to download from usenet groups. After trying a few I found NZBVortex. This program is easy to install and connect to mu usenet groups. It is fast and handles any thing you could throw at it.

Absolutely top notch software by a top-notch developer. One of the best pieces of software I have ever had the pleasure of installing on my macs. Been using it for a few years and have never looked back. NZBV launches at login, sits quietly waiting for watch folder activity. Does it's job efficiently, cleans up like a champ and leaves everything organized for Hazel to come along and do some more detailed file sorting. Don't waste time with anything else for handling NZBs, this one is a smooth operator and will never let you down.

I use NZBVortex since version 2 and I love it... I even stopped using SABNzbd on my Windows machine because this app is so easy to use... The UI looks nice, the cloud works as intended and the support via Twitter is very fast, they work very transparent and don't try to keep any secrets from you. You can even test new betas, posted in Twitter. It's worth every $. Thanks to the developers and keep on the good work, I wish there would be more App devs like you...

One of the best purchases ever made. Moved over from Windows with Newsbin Pro and was looking for the equivalent or better on a Mac. After trying a few other free and paid clients I found it. To echo other reviewers, NZBVortex is a lightweight but powerful, easily configurable application. Unpacking/repairing/joining files is extremely fast and light on system resources, completely unobtrusive. It just works. You cannot beat the price for the features and performance this client offers. Hats off to the developers.

The good: makes a taxing thing easy; makes a good thing even better. Everything you need in a tight intuitive package (though I can never figure out the RSS feeds as I do with torrents). But that's of no fault of the developer. It seems so well layed out that when I do know what I'm doing, It will be a matter of plug-and-play. As for the bad: In all of 3 months since I've used it, it has not once failed me. It warns me when a package is corrupt or password protected. It downloads faithfully whatever you want and whenever you decide or schedule. It is money well spent and time less wasted sifting through repositories and reading the reviews only to have a failed download. And the 10 day trial is more than enough to have you singing praises. Enjoy!

I've used NZB Vortex for around 2 years now, this was when I first started using NZB's and also moved over to Mac. I used to use another NZB client which was problematic and this did initially put me off downloading NZB's, but this was until someone suggested NZB Vortex on a forum I'm a member on. So I downloaded a trial version of NZB Vortex and since then, I've had no more issues with the hundreds of NZB's I've downloaded. If you are wanting a rock solid, reliable, and also light on system resources, then NZB Vortex does all of this and then some, also at the $10 (£6.55) asking price it's extremely cheap for all of this too. The developer is extremely helpful and quick to reply on the couple of occasions I needed to email them to ask about some connection settings/questions when I first started using NZB Vortex.

This is a PDA app. Pretty "Darn" Amazing. It just works. It is solid, doesn't use unnecessary resources, and gets the job done. So what more should I expect? I tried pretty much every other NZB download application and this one immediately kicked the others' butts. And the developer is maximum cool. He is awesome!!!! So that's it. Totally pleased. Occasionally I have the feeling that a repair is taking a really long time - occasionally. And maybe something could be improved there but I'm not sure. I had a 30 GB file recently that took around 24 hours for a repair. Not sure why. I moved it over to MacPar Deluxe and ran the same process just to see - I think it took around four hours. So something can occasionally get screwy with a really huge file given all the other things I do on my computer. But still this is the best I've found and when I get such a large file I do often transfer the process over to the other application and let this one work on other files. Overall - quite happy and I'm not sure I'm even right about the issue that sometimes seems not to be quite right.

By far the best NZB client out there for OS X. I miss some of the features that Unison had (sorta still has...), in that you could actually search for and view the various newsgroups, post topics, upload files, etc - but for what NZBVortex does it is superb. Downloads consistently saturate my bandwidth (sometimes need to enable throttling just so I can do other things on the internet while downloading something), unraring and fixing rar files via par2 files is seamless and fast, the built-in search function for the various nzb aggregators out there is extremely effective, built-in cleanup options (automatically delete nzb files after adding, deleting "sample videos" etc.) works extremely well, etc. Overall the program does what it does extremely well, while it lacks features of a full blown usenet reader, for straight up downloading of nzb files it simply can't be beat.

NZBVortex is an extremely user-friendly binary leecher, in that it downloads and joins all segments, determines the need for recovery files, downloads and runs the recovery files (if needed), and cleans up everything but the desired files(s) all n a single click. Nothing one can't do for free, but the streamlining of the whole process makes it worth the $10. However, there are two caveats. Number one: It deems a good number of NZBs as "invalid," refuses to run them, and suggests to re-download. Doing so never seems to alter their validity, although Unison will run the same NZB and all the segments download and join without a problem. The really odd thing is, this problem never occurred with the free, unregistered version of NZBVortex, only after I paid. In fact, it ran a particular NZB in unregistered mode, then refused to run the same NZB after I paid. It almost makes me recommend not paying (although you're speed throttled in unregistered mode, which nixes that idea) The second caveat is a bit more philosophical. NZBVortex is a leecher, period. Meaning, if everyone solely used it, there would be nothing on the usenet to leech. The makers profit from the kindness of others and give nothing in return. So, there was a tinge of guilt handing over ten dollars, justified only by the fact that I use NZBVortex only for convenience, and regularly use other programs to contribute content that it leeches off. Still, I would have gladly paid double the price if their program compressed, segmented, created recovery files, and UPLOADED with the same ease in which it downloads. They would only be adding value to their product, and may want to consider it in the future.

I purchased version 2 of this excellent piece of software & upgraded to version 3 through Mac App store. The software is brilliant, the best out there. Where it falls down however is the developer's lack of support for the App store version. I am stuck at version 3.0.3 with no update in sight yet people who purchased directly can download 3.1.2 which, if I remember correctly, is three updates ahead of mine. I cannot download it & activate directly as I have no serial number & feel as if I'm being treated as a second class citizen. I think the developer should send me a complimentary serial number to compensate for this inconvenience or improve his support for the Mac App store. I've previously contacted him directly about this same issue.

By far, the best NZB program I have ever used. The design is so elegant and simple (very mac-like), yet gives more control over your downloads as compared to other seemingly more complex programs.

Best .nzb handler for Mac, hands down. Have tried competitor products, and NZBVortex's speed and automated features make content handling very easy and very fast. I like the easy Speed Limit feature. NZBVortex Cloud, in particular, has already been useful in weeding out problem .nzb's. Really great product, and I have no regrets about purchasing both versions 2 and 3.

I've only needed to contact support when I first installed NZB Vortex, and they were able to quickly and promptly help me out with my questions. NZB Vortex just keeps getting better with updates and I can highly recommend it to anyone who is wanting an easy to use but at the same time a powerful NZB client. Five stars to the developer, well done :)

Longtime user of NZBVortex (since v.1 I think). One of those rare pieces of software that is just perfect. Having a responsive developer is just icing on the cake. I agree with other reviewers that v2 was everything I wanted, but I still upgraded to v3 without hesitation. When a developer makes something this good you just want to support them :) That said, v3 is even better than v2. Worth every penny and has been for years.

I made the switch from Unison to NZBVortex a couple of years ago and I couldn't be happier. It's not as if I didn't like Unison but being new to newsgroups I didn't know that there were alternatives. One day I came upon NZBVortex and it was love at first download. The feature that made the switch a no brainer for me was the ability to search for files in the application itself. That was like gold to me. One other standout for me was the support. Ger Teunis has proven to be a REMARKABLY helpful developer. He (I am pretty sure that Ger is a man though I can't be 100% sure) has been both prompt in helping me when I have a problem and useful in helping me solve those problems. Quite remarkable!

Well, it just works perfectly. To me, the best part is the repairing, since many file are broken with my provider.. but the rest is perfect too, it supports everything, and the included packaging supports rar5, there's really not a single negative point. Keep it up!

NZBVortex doesn't cache Search requests, so if you want to sort Desc/Asc or by Size instead of Age it sends request again... it would be smart to do some caching and local sorting.. Free version is limited to 250kbit even if it is not clear. Does it support app nap? it uses more energy that BinSearch

Hello, I have used for several years many software NewsLeecher, mimo, unison, newshosting software ... NZBVortex is definitely the best on mac and search engines are well integrated and efficient with possibilities to merge several NZB in 1... really usefull for TV Shows for example... The support is very responsive to questions and the team is very open to requests for changes. Sorry for my English...

This is a good application for what it does, although at times it feels like a 'rip-off' of other applications. Not sure if the developer is affiliated with, but it looks a lot like Transmission with the similarities in even the icons astonishing (as in exactly the same). Shame it doesn't distinctively stand out. The implementation of RSS feeds seems really clunky, and although for Torrents, Automatics implementation seems a lot more clear and user friendly. Its a shame it cannot be as feature rich as say SickBeard is for NZB's as ultimately this is what it seems to be aspiring to emulate (a bit of SABNzb and a bit to Sickbeard). Apart from its faults, it worth a look. Although there are freely available alternatives that are a lot more feature rich which this should be considering its at version 2.9, sometimes it feels like a version 1 application.

I use both SABnzbd+ and NZBVortex. NZBVortex is a joy to use and VERY reliable. I love the VISUAL feedback. My only criticism would be that when accessing the servers it automatically checks to see if it is valid before I have finished entering the information. I prefer the SABnzbd+ approach which allows you to test the server in your own time.

The best NZB Client for the Mac. I used Unison for a long time (also a good NZB Client) but after the development kinda stopped and only bugfixes were released, I tried several other clients and finally found NZBVortex. In my opinion the best nzb client for mac out there. I bought it from the App Store, but since there werent any updates comming anymore (because of very long App Store Reviewing process), I bought it some days ago again directly from the developer store. Really great piece of software ... and If you want buy it, buy it here instead of the App Store (to avoid long waiting for updates). btw. the support is also great!

Fantastic. After having tried the competition I've settled on this app. It does everything I could want my NZB downloader to do and its cheaper than the other apps I tried, nice work! I'm still in my trial period but I'll certainly be buying it when that expires. Probably my only gripe is the developer never makes it very clear exactly which advanced features will be unlocked, but I guess I'll find out in a week ;)

I wasn't very satisfied with Unison's downloading features, so I tried almost every NZB Downloader. I usually don't pay for apps and stick with free alternatives, but NZBVortex is really worth the money. It has a very clean UI, a very nice support (through twitter I always get answers within an hour!) and it's auto skipping of files is very very handy. I tried several Usenet clients on my Windows 7 machine, but even the paid ones which are much longer in business are more sluggish and complicated than this special piece of software. The one thing I want to be integrated in future updates: NZBIndex (it's my favorite searching site) Mysterbin NZB (my second choice of search engines ;) )
