How and why to use USENET?

Question by ivangow: How and why to use USENET?
It is being reported that USENET has a great speed and loads of files, hard to find using TorreInts/hotfile/megaupload/ other sharing websites! Is that correct? Can I use/connect somehow free of charge and does it worth it?Should I really bother with it? Is it Really so good? How does it work explained in short? Is there casual internet users that use USENET?
Thank You

it is direct download and can be really fast
there are lots of them though so choose carefully (read reviews)
it is not free – you pay for what you get
