    "Didn't know about usenet before this"

    October 28, 2011   |   By torrentmaster9

    Version: Binverse 1.20

    Pros

    Was really easy to get setup. Downloads fly over my ethernet connection.

    Cons

    You have to download software. No web access.

    Summary

    Hadn't tried usenet before this, so i'm not sure whatelse is out there. But i have been very happy with binverse so far.

    "Better than most for Usenet newbies"

    October 19, 2011   |   By filefreekjc

    Version: Binverse 1.20

    Pros

    Fast downloads. Everything you need in a simple setup.

    Cons

    More comments for each file would be helpful.

    Summary

    As a long time Usenet user, I've used everything from Giganews to Easynews to Usenetserver. They are all good Usenet services. Binverse excels at making the process easy. Server access, newsreader and search engine all in one package. If you are a Usenet pro, you might want to look into other options. If you are new to Usenet, try out a service like Bivnerse first.

    "The speed is sick"

    September 14, 2011   |   By 4kix2150

    Version: Binverse 1.20

    Pros

    Easy install. Really really fast.

    Cons

    More comments would make it easier to choose your downloads.

    Summary

    I had never downloaded with an uncapped connection before and lets just say it was eye opening. I am getting speeds of more than 8000 kbit/sec with my wired ethernet connection. Worth it IMO for serious downloaders.

    "Had been scared to try this..."

    September 02, 2011   |   By terrance71z

    Version: Binverse 1.20

    Pros

    Setup was easy and software was really easy to figure out.

    Cons

    It's only free for a short time, then you have to pay.

    Summary

    You never know when you are downloading form the internet what you are going to get. I had been a little afraid to try this because i didn't want my computer overun with viruses. But decided to go ahead and do the free trial anyway. The software was easy to use and I found most of what I was looking for. A good alternative to torrents or rapidshare. Cancelled the free-trial and didn't have any issues. Would use it again.

    "It is really fast"

    August 19, 2011   |   By zbgolightly

    Version: Binverse 1.20

    Pros

    I have a fast Internet connection (10 mbit/s) and downloading with Binverse is really fast.

    Cons

    There is a lot of stuff on here and finding what you want is not always the easiest. Not much different than torrents for me though.

    "binverse rocks"

    August 09, 2011   |   By lobonegrog

    Version: Binverse 1.20

    Pros

    i wanted a way to download that couldn't be monitored like torrents. binverse provides secure connections and i've been able to find almost everything i've been looking for.

    Cons

    you have to pay for it. turns out there is a cost associated with downloading privately.

    Summary

    i wanted to move away from torrents, and binverse allowed me to do that.

    "I like downloading with Usenet"

    July 29, 2011   |   By tlvo8879

    Version: Binverse 1.20

    Pros

    Fast and secure connections

    Cons

    Same as any other method of downloading

    Summary

    I have been downloading from the internet forever. Napster, Kazaa, torrents, etc... Binverse is fast and secure, and unlike torrents, I'm not uploading anything while I download it. It's not perfect, but I prefer it to the alternatives.
