VB recently heralded in their latest and greatest new website, with new format, colors, search function, etc. Now their viewers can easily find their blurry, dated postings, along with all the compilations and reposts. Too bad they didn't spend that money on quality vids. Videosz has surpassed them by a mile, and you can see pretty much the same fare that VB shows for a fee on any of the free tube sites. Can't help but wonder why The Best Porn continues to rate them so highly.
One thing I didn't mention in my review (I forgot...) is that at times the download speeds can be very slow. On most sites it is common for me to hit 12-14 MB/sec. On LP I have hit that though the average speed is usually half that. There are times, however, when the download speed is as low as 1 MB/s. Those times correlate with peak download times in Europe rather than in the U.S.
Got immediately biiled with two other subscriptions I did not select. There has been no receipt mail for signing up for these two subscriptions. I just see two items in my credit card biling, but I have no idea for which sites actually they want money. Thus, there is no chance of cancellation.
I joined this site about a couple of hours ago because I had a reduced offer and thought "what the heck" if I can't download. Good news is that you can download the movies. You must have a download manager; I use IDM. On the selected movie, in the "Settings" button, just select HTTP for your streaming option, click on the movie to play it and IDM will then give you an option to "Download this video"; left click and save to your directory. Enjoy.
Yep - I'm back on the site and wondering what's going on with the download speeds and the use of download managers. Just tried to download a video using the same manager I've always used and it quickly ended, giving me a 52 k/b file. And the browser speed is horrendous, running from around 75 to 100 kb/s. Nothing like seeing 1 hour, 10 minutes to finish a 300 meg file...
Anyone else been here recently or currently who can relate their experience with downloads?
On the plus side (sort of), I saw a reference to their making changes in the lighting on some videos and I look forward to seeing what that's all about. Just wish it wasn't taking ages to see what that's all about. First file to be finished in 47 minutes...
And today, 10 meg speed. Took seconds to download a 315 meg file. Not sure what was up last night. I've seen a site have some variation in server speed from day to day, but nothing this radical.
Constant 75-150 kb/s speed. Been mostly slow all week, with very few spikes of real speed. I'm getting way better speeds using a flash recorder on YouTube. It's ridiculous spending money for this.
I ignored others warnings and decided to sign up. Bad mistake. Got billed for sites I didn't want. When I attempt to cancel the online site says they can't find my account. Even though I log in with the same information to gain access to the site. Emails are ignored. This is the last time I sign up with a site that DOESN"T have an independent biller.
I was browsing the list of video trailers on their site (number #1 to #50).
Some of the vids appear missing? Video #46 appeared next to #42, did not see #43 #44 or #45. I then looked at the list from #50 - #100 and the numbering system tells me there are not 50 videos in there.
I had a membership on this site about 4 years ago and liked it very much, but after reading all of the negative comments about the clever ways that they have figured out to take your money I decided to join another site instead. I am particularly concerned that the webmaster rarely replies to the complaints and doesn't seem to care. I guess the money they make ripping off their customers more than makes up for people like me who walk away.
. . . Google CGBilling before you join. . . I was about to join up, but had never heard of the biller. . Seems they `lead the league` in UNauthorized credit card deductions, improper charges and just out-and-out stealing. . . Though listed here as `Commerce Gate, when you fill out the application, it says `CGBILLING` on the bottom. . . You`ve been warned.
Dupe scenes have always been a fact of life with Videobox - with so much licenced repackaged stuff being posted, it's going to happen a lot, and it does. But when Videobox is posting Pornstar Power 2 on 12/11/14, and then posting Getting Slammed #2 on 12/12/14 - a DVD that dupes 2 scenes for the Pornstar Power DVD - that's just laziness on the level of "urp - I posted my DVD's of the day - time for a beer".
i paid for a membership yesterday, and 24 hours later i still cannot log in using my verified user / password. should have listened to the other reviews. seems like a site with this kind of high quality focus on content would have a better tech team!!
"A message from VideoBox: As part of an overall systems and server improvement, we will be retiring our old web site (known as "VB2") in early 2015. At that time we will also stop offering the WMV file format for downloads. The exact cutoff date is not yet known, but we expect it will be on or before February 1, 2015. For more information, please click here." http://www.videobox.com/wmv-removal
Strange! no HD access with trial membership. Only option was for standard definition. The whole point of a trial is that people can check the quality of the videos & sites, Thank god I didn't go in for a full membership.
Some recent thoughts on VB so you don’t have to endure another VB review from me…
The last time I had a VB membership I swore it was THE last time. I preferred the quality of niche sites over the all-you-can-eat-buffet approach offered at VB. But after 18 months without being a member there I opted to rejoin and see if anything had changed. I think they have (a bit) for the better.
The biggest difference now is that of the five daily updates two of them are in HD where before only one update per day was HD. You need to keep in mind that this is VB’s idea of HD and they use the term differently from others. The VB HD videos are 1280x720 and usually around 3500kb/s. That isn't bad, and I suppose it does meet the literal definition of HD but it isn't up to industry standards. Still, they have doubled the HD upload which means there is less SD uploaded. The SD stuff is 656x480 and 1200kb/s. That a standard not widely used for many years at niche sites but it’s important to note that VB has always been more about quantity than quality.
The bad news is that VB still relies heavily on repackaged compilations. Some scenes may appear on the site several times. I’ve seen the same scene uploaded twice in a few days on different DVDs. Usually the DVD titles will indicate that this is a compilation, and there are whole studios dedicated to it. Finally, there are several VB members who have an encyclopedic knowledge of both porn and VB and those members will often flag where and when that scene appears elsewhere on the site – and which version is better.
VB is good at what it does and it doesn’t pretend to be something that it isn't. It has a huge collection of DVDs (now almost 19,000) and at such a low price I can’t see why anyone would use tube sites instead of VB. VB has always offered a good way to get access to a broad range of porn. They still upload ‘classics’ from the 1980s and 1990s.
I joined Bangbros earlier this year, but canceled after being double billed. Maybe it has gotten better, but they have virtually non-existent customer support. I emailed them about the double billing and did not receive a response for well over a week. I find that level of customer service to be pretty poor, also canceling was quite a chore.
They have some attractive girls and a nice archive, but the video quality of their scenes could be better (best I have seen is 720p) and it seems a lot of their websites are no longer updating or updates are infrequent at best. Can any recent or current members confirm it is still the same in regards to billing/support/canceling or has it gotten better?
I joined BangBros yesterday and just after my first log in i realized that not only BanBros is unlocked but also: Dancing Bear, Haze Her, College Rules, CFNM Show, Brandi Belle and Busty Adventures.
I only joined BangBros and im afraid that they will charge me for all the sites listed. Anyone experienced the same?
This doesn't apply only to Devils Film, but to the Fame group network/family.
When you cancel your membership online, you are using a non-secure connection.
They ask you to enter the following information:
Site (You joined through)
I think this is poor practice.
Not only are you sending your username and password and email through a non-secure connection (no https in the URL), but I would assume that any professional hacker could easily capture that information.
I do not understand why they use a non-secure connection when requesting private data.
