Su’s pricing is easy to navigate, since they only offer one plan:

  • VIP Tier – $15 per year – 6000 API hits and 500 downloads (per day)

They used to offer a free tier, like NZBFinder and DrunkenSlug, but they’ve suspended free access indefinitely because of abuse.

They also recently increased the price of their VIP membership from $10 to $15 per year. Unfortunately, this makes them more expensive than some of the other top indexers, like NZBGeek and NZBPlanet. They’re still a bit cheaper than Slug and DogNZB, but the lower price comes with a lower daily download allowance too. also has ads, though VIP members can limit them partially or entirely.

What Kind of Content is Best For?


When comparing to other top indexers, it held it own pretty well in terms of quality and quanity of content.

And it did stand out in a couple of areas. For starters, it seems to have a slightly larger selection of older content. So, if you love stuff that’s 10, 20, or more years old, may give you better results than, say, NZBGeek.

It also has a ton of foreign content, especially in Russian. It seems the admins may be Russian themselves, which would explain the .su (Soviet Union) domain.

Su also seems to get plenty of content with smaller file sizes in its recent listings, which makes it a solid choice if you’re lacking in bandwidth or hard drive space. However, has been rumored to “scrape” content from other indexers, like NZBGeek.

Is Worth It?

With all of the nitty gritty details out of the way, let’s cut to the chase: is worth it?

Well, that depends. On one hand, is slightly more expensive than some of the other top indexers – and offers less downloads per day than others. So, if you’re looking for either the cheapest plan you can find or the most bang for your buck, they wouldn’t be our absolute first choice.


However, they’re still undoubtedly one of the top indexers around, with some content you won't find elsewhere, and they make an excellent second (or third) indexer for Usenet users who want to maximize content and minimize failures.
