Warning: trying to trick European customers with "special offers"
I used a TBP discount to buy an evilangel.com membership. When I decided to cancel they offered me a 30 days membership for $11.21. So I decided to stay. Since I didn't receive a confirmation email, I was a little sceptical. That's why I contacted their support with a couple of questions, and I'm glad I did.
Imagine my surprise when they told me, that they would charge me the same amount in Euros. Which is in fact $15.26 and not what I agreed to!
I'm really getting tired of the porn industry and their shady tactics. Shit like this is why people aren't willing to pay for porn anymore.
This site has currently a 12GB download limit. Annoying to be sure and my fault for not realizing it when I signed up. The bigger bullshit though is that they don't automatically unlock the accounts after the 24 hour penalty period.
According to their terms, it's supposed to be locked for 24 hours if you exceed the download limit. However to get your account unlocked you have to email their support. I've been locked out of my account for periods of 30, 38 and currently 25 hours. That's an extra 15 hours - nearly an entire day of access - they've stolen from me. Complete bullshit. Download limits are bad enough - can blow through 12GB on my connection in less than an hour - but to not automatically unlock frozen accounts? That's next level.
I'm also pretty sure their stated 12 GB download limit is wrong. When I was most recently locked out it was after downloading 11.8 GB.
I will not be renewing my subscription or ever resubscribing!
I liked this site, it competes well with Videobox and has thousands of scenes. Be careful where your cursor is. One wrong click on an image or a logo next to the scene and you will be billed $40 within minutes. I was going to go for a 1 year membership before this happened. Not now.
Page loads are now excruciatingly slow most of the time (20-30 seconds or longer). Streaming videos are hit or miss - many don't even work. Downloadable videos are hosted on three different domains, all of which behave differently. It seems they are moving everything to Cloudfront (Amazon CDN). Cloudfront and the other newer server (Videobox-branded, don't know anything else about this one) are both unfriendly to download managers. If you queue several downloads, the ones further down the queue will likely have their authentication expire, and you will have to go back to each individual page to restart the download. I've joined this site many times in the past - this time I cancelled immediately. No longer recommended unless you'd rather spend WAY more time browsing than actually watching anything.
Also, I'm sure it's been noted, but the VAST majority of "new" movies added are old movies I've already seen recycled so many times i could probably recite the interviews. I'm pretty sure they're going for a record on how many times they can call the same New Sensations title "new". This seems even worse than it used to be, not a deal breaker but sort of annoying to sift through. Their "recently popular" section helps with this, but mainly just gives you two sections to check for new content (and more time spent waiting for pages to load).
The site is impossible to cancel. Following the cancellation instructions on the website requires you to select from four different billing companies that MIGHT have billed you. I was billed by psnbilling.com which is NOT one of the four billing companies listed, leaving no means of cancellation. Going to psnbilling.com's site is equally unsuccessful: after entering account identifiers a 404 page comes up. So far I have spent more time trying to cancel than using the site. Cancelling should be as easy as joining, the only reason to make it harder is to increase revenue by billing for unwanted renewals, which judging from my own experience and those of other posters on pornusers.com, is exactly what elegantangel is now doing. Your membership also automatically and without your consent enrolls you in some other low end site, maybe a cam site, with per minute charges, the amount of which is not disclosed. Advertising links to the other site are on every page, I am going to guess, that if you click on any of those links you will get some outrageous per minute billings for something to which you never agreed. Looks like elegantangel has graduated from the bangbros.com school of billing trickery.
Warning! This site tricks you into full memberships with so-called trial memberships! Even if you uncheck their trial offer, you are billed. You get not e-mail on this additional membership. Contacting the site leads to no reaction.
I Was Lured In By The Discounted Price And The Fact That Epoch, Whom I've Dealt With Several Times, Was Their Service.
Quite Simply, The Videos Would Not Download. It Has Been 2 days Since I Sent A Support Email and I Haven't Heard Shit. Just Sent Another But Not Holding Out Much Hope...And, Yes, I'm Going To Be Pissed If I Have To call.
What's up with all these e-mails to join other Evil Angel sites?
I keep getting e-mails inviting me to join Evil Angel sites for a discount. I joined through pornusers, so I'm not sure if they just give you access to a core site and have a bunch of others you need additional access to (Reality Junkies, Devil Films, etc).
Alternatively, I did initially join with a one-month $5 deal, then cancelled that and joined through PU. Could that be it and I actually have access to all these 'deals' they're offering, but they haven't realized that the two enrollments were under the same e-mail?
You know the search function of a site is crap when you download a scene from "Where The Girls Sweat" and wonder who directed the thing so you put Where The Girls Sweat in the "search site" box and the response is "0 results".
The person who designed the search function for Videobox should go work for the Health & Human Service's website for insurance exchanges so all the people who can't get a website to function correctly can be in one place.
I subscribed to this site, and I am glad I did. Lot of high quality content, really good videos relative to what you may find on other DVD sites.
But they dont seem to update very often and the last video clip was 3 weeks ago.
This is not a problem now because the existing selection is pretty large.
But I will have to think a bit on the renewal because of the update frequency. Perhaps I will find they put a lot of dvds out there over the course of a full year, and I should be ignoring the week to week stuff.
I have not made up my mind yet because the content quantity and quality is really good despite the update concern.
Video Box is the place to go if you want to build a collection of porn from the past 15 years. A porn fan can spend hours perusing this site and downloading some of the best (and worst :)) porn you can imagine.
The site updates with 5 DVD's per day of varying quality. About 2 of every 5 DVD's will have a scene or two worth downloading. The price is right for the basic stuff. The download speeds are good, and the compressed MP4 downloads offer good quality without having the scenes reach 1 gig.
Be aware that the quality of the scenes from some of the channel sites, Evil Angel for example, is less than what is available on EvilAngel.com.
there is a huge amount of good video content on this site, and many of the videos actually play.
Not sure what the problem is here, but a fairly high percentage of the videos do not run or will not download correctly.
Its a real shame. I suspect these folks are trying to provide a quality site, but something is not working.
On the positive side, if they have what seems like billions of videos, something is going to play. Its just frustrating it often seems like you spinning a roulette wheel (will it or will it not play) and wasting your time.
As another commenter has mentioned you just cant download a bunch of videos for later viewing. Maybe you got the video content and maybe you didnt.
I hope they get this reliability problem fixed, because there are a lot of positive things to say about this site.
The video library is extensive and quality, including German, French, and Italian films in splendid color. However, when you request to download a film, it takes you to a streaming player without any download button. You may used a Flash Recorder, but often you get a failed authorization method.
Also includes Private Threesomes, and our XXX Life, which are two semi-amateur sites with quality content.
I saw the other comments about confused billing and was impressed by the web masters commitment to resolve the concern. I watched closely and the sign up process and cancellation process is now very clear.
I wasn't certain what the site was about for sure, and I must have been crazy to sign up for a 3 month spin on a hunch.
I am sure glad I did.
There is a lot of stuff here to see ....it is going to take me 3 months to find my way around. There are some very good looking ladies here doing some pretty wild stuff.
It sort of like being caught in the middle of a three ring circus where most everyone is naked or soon to be naked.
A part of the reason its so easy to get lost on this site, is that no matter where you land you are watching something that catches your interest and after a while you forget where you were going in the first place.
Glad I gave it a shot, and really glad I signed up for a longer subscription. It is going to be a long while before it is time to move along.
I can deal with the downloads not being offered "officially". I can deal with the fact that they dont offer single scenes, but you have to download the whole movie. But there are some titles that are not available for viewing. These are some "Blockbuster" titles like Island Fever #3 and #4 and Pirates series. I contacted support,and they told me to to go and buy the DVD lol. It's their policy to not offer their "blockbuster" movies as their support rep informed me. Thank god I didn't fully pay for this. It was a gift for being a member at BRazzers for 2 months.
While I respect the opinions that martinlongbow and RustyJ wrote recently I can't agree with them. At the risk of sounding like a shill I find Evil Angel to be among the best sites on the internet. They do everything right: the porn is amazing with exceptional production values, the downloads are fast, they offer many different ways to stream or download their material, they update regularly and they offer a TBP/PU discount that turns a great value into an exceptional value.
I admit that the criticisms that the other members raised have some validity, but I don't think those flaws outweigh what the site does right. To address the specific issues raised:
- not enough Mike Adriano, too much Kevin Moore: I think Mike Adriano is among the best directors working today and I download EVERYTHING I can get of his so I agree that it would be nice to get more but there is a lot available still. Kevin Moore does a couple of my favorite series so I'd like more of his work too.
- Too much TS: I'm not a big fan of TS stuff either and wish Joey Silvera would bring back some of his older series (Fashion Sluts and Butt Row please!!) There are currently 94 TS DVD posted out of almost 1500 DVDs. While I don't download the TS stuff I realize that there are those who like it and it doesn't bother me that it is there.
- subsequent months more expensive than the first. Yes, this is true. The discount only applies to the first month but every time I go to leave I get offered the lower price.
- 'locked' updates. This is true too and it can be annoying but I agree with jberry169 in his reply that these are sort of a preview bonus we get to see before the DVD hits the streets. There was an Asphyxia Noir / Skin Diamond scene uploaded and locked yesterday that I really want to download so I'll watch to see how long that takes. I'm sure it'll be unlocked in the next month and probably only a week.
Anyway, I'm not trying to undermine valid opinions, but I think that objectively this site is still amazing and I'll continue to come back to it regularly. I'd score it in the mid 90s (and seeing my review is quite old maybe I'll post another review to justify that opinion).
I've been meaning to do a new review for this mess but it's so hard to access the site that I may not even be able to do so before my membership runs out. If I do finally get access to the site then I will post a more recent review but for now please, please don't join this site because you will regret the loss of that 20$.
I really liked evil angel but it is going down fast. updates are way slower and they cut their best director mike adriano big time. instead we get kevin moore and lesbian/trans movies. this used to be the best anal site. alas, another great site is dying
