How reliable, Newsgroupdirect, guys?

I'm not a real heavy user, but I haven't had any problems.

Takedowns?

Lots of takedowns but just as much as any US-based provider.

I've been paying $6/month for unlimited and probably only download 10-20GB/month on average. I think I'm just wasting my money, not to mention the takedowns have made it more tedious to obtain what you're looking for.

I dont see an "add block" option in my membership page.. :-/
I've been paying $5/month for the past two years, but I havent used more than 50GB any month.

I think you won't see it if you have a monthly membership. I changed from monthly to a block recently and that made it appear for me.

If you already have a subscription to a usenet that is a reseller for UNS Holdings, in this case The Cubenet, is there any point to buying a block at newsgroup Direct since they are both resellers for the UNS Holdings?

They are all highwinds reseller, so the service should be the same. You should buy a block from a provider that uses a different backend provider.

You can get 250 gb blocks at TweakNews.eu for $15

Got a link for that? Their site shows 30.00 for 250GB.

Thanks OP and green 4 U

Lots of fake stuff out there too so use http://www.binsearch.info/ first to see if there is a PW, which shows a fake.

Does downloading headers count against the block usage?

On a 500gb block acct. they gave me 50gb extra for headers
