"Checksum errors"

April 25, 2008  |  By Chardynin

 |  Version: NZB Drop 1.1


This review was originally posted on
MacPAR deLuxe reports checksum errors on about a quarter of the rar segments I download with NZB Drop. These can usually be fixed, but downloading all the par files and waiting for the rars to be restored is very time-consuming.

I do like NZB Drop's interface, the fact that you can unqueue items, the ability to use more than one server, and the fast download speed.

But until they fix the checksum problem, I'm going to stick with Unison.

"Great, but hogs some CPU"

February 05, 2007  |  By davidgrotzky

 |  Version: NZB Drop 1.0

The simplicity of this program is what makes it so great.

I used to use Unison, but that can only open one stream per file. Plus the fact that I was getting slow speed from it.

This program lets you customize in how many parts it downloads one seperate file. You easily drop NZBs on it and it has a download window for each one.

Only drawback is that it uses 28% of my CPU (MacBook) while downloading, which seems to be a lot. Though I wager this will be optimized in later versions.

Price seems a bit steep to me. But I'll keep a close watch on this prog.
