newsgroup readers

so i used to use Newsshark for my mass searches and Downloads and newsfilegrabber for NZB based Dls.. but newsshark has memory management issues for large groups and crashes.. anyone have any reccomendations for a good newsgroup reader to replace newshark with?

thank in advance.

I use Xnews right now. It is free and does a good job. Only thing I don't like about it, is it has no search feature.

Im using usenetserver.com.... Its $13/month...I get way more than I pay in and I have been really happy with it. The stuff is usually stored for 180 days with 99% completion.

I also use newsleecher to download. Its $20 a year but their supersearch feature is awesome. Just search and download in the same window.

Oh yeah. I max out my connection every time I download. Im on 20/5 Fios... I dl'd at a consistant 2.4mb/s

with newsshark i could DL all the groups headers and sift through them instead of doing random searches.. can newsleecher do that?
