    I found some rare claims that UseNext scams customers like acai vendors. Is it true?

    I am trying to download some torrent that can be downloaded only through UseNext,Wixi, NowDownloadAll, iDownloadUnlimited and LatestDownloads.net. All of them ask for a payment method even for the free trial. Can trust any of them?

    Long time ago before I was doing Black-Hat I always faked UseNext accounts.

    I always downloaded movies with full speed ( DSL 6000 ), so a movie around 700MB took about 10 minutes.

    But you have a limit, I think it is 50GB a month, depending on how much you pay for you subscribtion.

    What do you mean by "faked UseNext accounts"? Did you pay only for what you wanted or were you overcharged?

    I use eweka, it's dutch but it works perfectly, 300gb or more bandwidth/month and very high speed (I maxed my internet connection which is 2.5MB/s)

    Thanks all of you, I found UseNext fakers (in thepiratebay for example). Eweka looks nice but is prepaid and I don't see how to overcome this.

    don't ever use Usenext. I paid them for a torrent I never found on the site. I paid like 1.5$ or something. I don't remember it but I know they just show you that they have something useful for you but when you signup there is nothing valuable.

    I disagree dheer. I use Usenext all of the time. As with any file sharing site, you won't find everything you are looking for. The download speed is superfast, especially if you're downloading large files. Yes, you pay a small amount for the fast download speed but in my opinion it's worth it.

    I can believe that - when you search rare files in most torrents search engine you always get four results (max speed, full file, secure connection and immidiate download) with no size details.

    Most 0 day release stuff are on news servers. You wont find many of them on torrents. I used to be a happy easynews user. Just not into downloading stuff anymore. Usenet is good too.

    Don't blame usenext for this it's the people that advertise usenext (They must have some sort of affiliate program) that say it can be found on usenext.

    You've probably seen an affiliate site. Just about every CPA network I'm a member of has the UseNext promo. They pay out anywhere from $9 to $12.50 depending on the network.

    He's right!!
    Usenext has an affiliate program so most torrent search engines advertise usenext with a torrent you're searching for hoping you will join.
    Usenext has a huge database but its not necessary that you'll always find what you're looking for.

    I'm using graboid - super awesome thing if you haven't used yet, but I got a crack with what I can create unlimited 4GB accounts so don't have to pay anything to do.

    Usenext.de is very slow!!!!

    It can't get 100 nor 50mbit/s.
    I was complaining about it, but they said it's my fault my ISP is too slow.
    But I am getting 101mbit/s from ISP on every port. They are not trimming me.
    They can't held what the are telling. Full bandwidth. What junks!!!

    Usenext just overcharges for Usenet access, you'll get better service from other Usenet providers. The claim that you see that "we can't find this file, but Usenext has it" is just generated by a script, it isn't actually searching the database.
