    I use igrabnews and am very content with it. It is a NZB complient and free newsgrabber. It can even automatically run the PAR/PAR2 command. It comes highly recommended!

    Just google for it.

    Later.

    Unison has NZB support and I use MacPAR Deluxe to verify/repair and then it will automatically unRAR files for you when it's done verifying/repairing. Do note that Unison isn't free though.

    I've tried all the programs above and settled on iGrabnews. Just seemed to be the most stable and consistent for me.
