"Used to be a lot better - is going downhill fast"

January 29, 2013  |  By JeremyMcG

 |  Version: UseNeXT 5.41

Pros

Fast downloads - tonnes of content - excellent search engine

Cons

Beyond the control of usenext, but in the 5 years that I used Usenext I have noticed a huge increase in viruses, trojans, malware and misnamed files. I was very happy with them to begin with
As people have stated, they send everything to collections. I'm now fighting an item currently in collections where my payment didn't go through, my access was never granted, i wasn't able to download a single byte and they now want me to pay for service never provided or received.

Summary

Either use prepaid credit card or find another provider.
Run either very good or double virus protection

"No complants!"

June 05, 2012  |  By webb264

 |  Version: UseNeXT 5.28

Pros

I have been a user/subscriber to UseNext for about 5 years now and have absolutely no complaints with the service they provide. Like many, I have had difficulty navigating usenet servers using a variety of readers. The UseNext software eliminates the confusion and allows me to search and find just about anything I want. Plus, their customer service has always been prompt in responding to any inquiries.

Cons

A little expensive for their top tier service.

"Run away from this scam machine!"

May 08, 2012  |  By jamromano

 |  Version: UseNeXT 5.28

Pros

none zero nada

Cons

infinite

Usenext is run as if it's prime purpose were to create new scams and con-games. Use it and you will get burned, eventually. Here's how they got me. 2 months into a one year membership my account was deactivated due to my violating terms of use agreements. My violation? I had gone ten days without accessing my account! Never heard of a minimal use requirement before.

They gave no courtesy email notice of the impending ten day violation, just bam! Shut it down and, sorry no reactivation or partial refund for the ten months left unused on our "agreement".

"Simply awesome D/L speed!!!"

November 23, 2011  |  By abh509

 |  Version: UseNeXT 5.28

Pros

Amazingly fast. Really simple and easy to use... By far the easiest and most intuitive out of all the big providers. The Wizard is great and does everything for you.

Cons

A touch on the pricey side.

Summary

Retards who don't read T's & C's will call it a 'scam'! It's nothing of the sort. Well worth every penny I've ever paid!

"Use this company only if you want headaches."

August 05, 2011  |  By nkb3

 |  Version: UseNeXT 5.00

Pros

You can tell your friends that you are paying the most money for the least amount of services.

Cons

Do yourself a favor and google usenext scam before you sign up for the free trial. Thousands of people did not do. Those same people have started many different web sites where you can read their advice about why you should avoid this company

Summary

There are good honest Usenet providers out there. Company's that offer quality service at a fair price. Use your head and do a web search before you sign up for Usenext's free trial.

Good luck

"BEWARE of this company."

August 05, 2011  |  By nkb3

 |  Version: UseNeXT 5.28

Pros

None. High price. Poor customer service.

Google usenet providers and choose a respected company if you are looking for a usenet portal.

Cons

Do yourself a favor and Google (usenext scam) before you even think of tying this company's free offer.

If you cancel your account they will tell you that you did not do it in time and send your account to a debt collector.

Summary

There are thousands of posts on the internet about this company. 99% of those posts the people all say the same thing. They tried the 14 day trial and decided it was not for them. When they canceled the account they were told it was too late and they were charged for a entire year of service. If they disputed the claim their account was sent to a dept collector.

"Solid but watch out for viruses"

May 10, 2011  |  By txadams

 |  Version: UseNeXT 3.61

Pros

Blazing fast. Follow up help is by email but is quick and polite. Comments by users is helpful and you can add your own - helps if file is corrupted or has a virus

Cons

Wish they could screen more for viruses but everyone should know what they're getting into and run downloads through a couple of virus scanners.

Summary

Best if paid through Paypal. Tons of storage for extremely fast downloads but watch out for Trojans, viruses et all. I reloaded the program but lost my activation key and the company was very quick in getting it back for me.

"Terrible customer services, very high price!"

May 01, 2011  |  By n-kb3

 |  Version: UseNeXT 5.28

Pros

Little to none. High prices, you can tell everyone you have one of the most expensive usenet portals on the net.

Cons

They will continue to try and bill your credit card even after you cancel.
Rotten customer service.
You have to 30 days to post.

Summary

Use Google and do a comparison with other news providers. Save your self time and money. I was a member for 18 months or two billing cycles on their 9 month plan. $112.00 per cycle for 80 gb of data per month. After seeing all the other providers offering unlimited access for much less I cancelled my membership. I had to tell my credit card company to block payment to them.
