Graboid review: Things you need to know

graboid review

It’s been a long time I posted about Graboid review. Graboid video is a desktop application, which runs on windows as well as Mac. This particular piece of application acts like dedicated browser to download videos. Graboid now allows you to download multiple videos simultaneously, though it affects your download speed. They have collections of more than 500,000 High-quality videos. You can download your movies or episodes in no time.

Best part of the Graboid video software is its download speed. I have managed to download a movie within 1 hour at 250/Kbps. You can either steam video or download. For Streaming, you need a minimum of 1 Mbps speed. For streaming full DVDs, you need a minimum 4Mbps.

About the security concern, Graboid is virus-free; it contains no spyware or adware. Well, I have been using Graboid since 2009, I dint find any virus. How Graboid works is, it fetches the content from Giganews, which is a world’s leading Usenet provider. Graboid has purchased a reseller account from Giganews. This comes with unlimited bandwidth. Graboid provides free 2 GB trial account which lets you to download movies of 2Gb in size, later on you can upgrade to Unlimited which is 19.99$ /month. Years back they had a cheaper plan like silver and gold. Remember, don’t forget to cancel your service if you’re unsatisfied with the service or else you will be charged subsequent month.

If you encounter any issues while using the application or if you have questions regarding you can contact customer support. They are available 7 days a week. Number is 1-877-460-0722 or you can mail them at support[@]

We cannot request for videos in Graboid. It only provides content which is available at Giganews. You might think why pay 19.99$, why can’t we use torrent? The problem is when you download the content from torrent the production companies can find out who is downloading their copyright content. So when you use Graboid application you are safe. If you still prefer torrent, you can use VPN connection and be safe.

If you unsatisfied with their service you can cancel your service by logging into your account. Go to account tab in the Graboid application and under payment history click cancel. This will then prompt confirm popup.

They only accept American Express, Discover and MasterCard. Unfortunately, they no longer accept PayPal as a payment method.

    Graboid really is great! I went ahead and tried out their free 4gb trial since I didn’t have to enter any account details soI figured I had nothing to lose. I’m so glad I did! What I found was a great service that really delivers. It’s not P2P, the selection of movies and tv shows is outstanding and all are full length some even in HD quality. But what I was really blown away by was the download speed. I download an 800mb movie in 12 minutes on my 10mbps connection. I didn’t even think that was possible. Within 12 minutes I was watching what I had downloaded. Awesome! I have since been a paying member for seven months and they have three plans available starting from $4.99 for 10gb. I can’t say enough good things about it, you’re just going to have to find out for yourself. Oh and you should check out the Graboid community forums which are a great place for any questions or problems you might encounter with Graboid although with their new version 1.65 I’ve noticed problems are decreasing rapidly.
