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
I joined this site the other day and when I checked my credit card statement, it showed that I was charged an additional $174(!) for something called "Explicit Cams" that I never ordered or used (they were trying to claim I ordered an 86 minute cam show). I also got an e-mail from the Explicit Cam support center that I had requested an increase of my daily limit to $175. None of this was true. I know this was all related to the Lethal HC charge because the 800 number on my statement next to the $174 charge took me directly to Lethal's billing support. After haggling with them for half an hour, I finally got them to agree to drop the charge, which is supposedly going to be reversed in a week or two. But they never gave me any explanation of why this charge appeared in the first place or gave me any reason to think it won't happen again. Bottom line: I won't be signing up to this site again, and I'd advise anyone else to be extra careful with them.
In the month I have belonged to Videosz.com it has become increasingly poorly responsive. Long response latencies after clicking links, logging me out of my account and sometimes taking so long to respond that it times out. This happens regardless of browser. I also confirmed it using the free website: www.websitenotworking.com. It is so frustrating that despite the improvements Videosz has recently made, I regret joining it and tying up my money.
This site is certainly one of those that have lost long time subscription appeal. Not only are the months more expensive after the first one but it also appears that everything new is a "world premiere" these days meaning you cannot download it in a week. Not really rewarding sitting there as a member and seeing that you will have nothing new to get in a while...
To me a world premiere is nothing but a delayed update.
I have been a member for the last 3 months but it is expiring and I don't think I will renew, although I can see how it is attractive for some people.
they have some interesting concepts but not reaching its full potential. too many similar content but not exploring them fully. party hardcore gets dull after couple episodes. I don't like camera moving around all the time and the girl you want to see either goes too fast or does not do anything. pissing content is really good but again lack of variety makes it repetitive.
they have some live shows if you are into that unfortunately not my cup of tea.
specifically for me the biggest issue is lack of anal content. they have so many opportunities to blend that in but all is wasted.
Not sure there's much to say on top of the reviews already here, but here are a few of my thoughts from my membership:
This site is exceptional value for money with the PU discount and has an almost bewildering amount of content. Happy to see most content is downloadable (ie, everything I've encountered so far), and lots of options size-wise (I was concerned every video would be 1gb).
My only complaints are that despite selecting 'female only' I was still seeing shemales crop up in results. Also, too many of the sex scenes involve anal which I'm not a fan of.
Happy that there are lots of models and each seem to have a decent amount of updates, probably averaging around 3-5 for each model (most more, some less). I'm digging Riley Reid. Too many models have horrible, ugly tattoos though.
But yeah, definitely very impressed; by far the best-value site I've ever been a member of, and one I will definitely be rejoining.
The site appears to have a nice feature where you can set the default watch quality for all the videos you stream. It also purports to let you change the default search to advanced.
However, these settings revert to the default low quality and basic search as soon as you leave the account page. As far as I can see, if you want to stream videos at higher quality, you need to change the quality setting for each video individually. And I have never been able to get the advanced search to actually show up on my splash page.
EDIT: Fixed by support within 13 hours of me posting. Now that's customer service!
Right off the preview bat - what I mean by that is, it would be nice - before you join - to see what offerings they offer but the only thing they offer is to take you to their signup page. (Like there is a button to "View All XXXXX Movies" and then doesn't show you the movies). Now I don't join a website if I can't see what it is I'm buying beyond what the front page description is telling me. If you can't make your preview more accessible then you won't get my business. Simple as that.
When I first joined up I browsed tons picture galleries, but A LOT of them have totally disappeared (over HALF of them!) and some of them are all messed up, you can only view the first ten pages (500 pics) of a pictorial, and some of them have 7-800 pics in them. I emailed the support team and they assured me that they were working on fixing it within a couple of days. Well, that was over 3 weeks ago and the galleries are still messed up. So I cancelled my membership, I'm not paying for a broken site, even if it is only 15 bucks a month.
since a week, hotmovies is seriously struggeling with the Streaming Speed.
- the "HD"-Option (4Mbit) doesn't work for me never!
- the 'MEGA"-Option (2Mbit) doesn't work since last week
The Streaming starts with the Maximum Speed (2 or 4 Mbit) and Drops down to 100 kbit/s. Sometimes i's going up and down, but you can't look the Video, that doesn't run smoothly. The anwser of the Support is the normal blablabla ".. it depends on your connetion, the Providers between have Problems, no Problem on hotmovies, i'm the only with Problems.." and so on.
unfortunately i'm working in the it-department, so i have a good look into the Problems (and have the measurement device to check the conditions).
I think the have not enough System ressources to fulfill the promised straeming Quality.
I provided a lot of detailed informations about up-/download-Speed to several Locations in USA (recommended by the hotmovies.com Support). All Downloads have a Speed over 10 MBit/s.
Here the anwser of hotmovies.com:
Thank you for contacting us.
While the speedtest may show that you have the bandwidth needed to stream movies from our site the speedtest is not connectiong to our servers.
It seems that for some reason you do not have enough bandwidth to play the movies from pur servers.
Why you are having this issue we do not know.
Our best suggestion to you is for you to contact your Interent Service provider.
=> in my opinion, that means "hey guy that's your problem"
As an network-specialist i say, no that's not my problem. The Problems are on the Hosting Service!!!! Small ´machines, not enough bandwith, to small Caches, to small bandwith to the filesystem/Network storage System, no balancing etc. there is a Long list for mistakes and Problems! But a good Service Needs some Money....
Last night the updatet the Website and now you have less then ever Options to stream the Videos. All Scenes are devided into several part's. Now you can only stream from the beginning of the complete Scene and not a single part of the Scene.
They have also more Problems with sorting the results of searchlistes and so on.
Update! Videoz has been very helpful making things right. It turns out my email provider had been blocked so they weren't getting any of my emails. When they saw my post here they immediately got in touch and got things working again. They even extended my subscription by the time I missed. More than fair. Thanks again Videoz!
One thing is that many videos just give you a green screen when streaming, another problem is that the streaming has been unusually jerky for days. The download speed as well has been well below average for the past few days, No, no other sites do this to me. Maybe a bigger server is finally required? The reason I comment here is because VB have not responded to the complaints about these issues when they were brought up on the site.
I haven't decided whether to write a re-review of Videobox, but I did add the Japanese "Soft on Demand" channel and thought I would share some info on it for anyone interested or maybe even warn others.
I've always wanted to join a Japanese video site, but wondered how I would feel about the mosaic. Lets get that out of the way first. Every scene I've downloaded from Soft on Demand has the mosaic/censorship. There isn't a search filter for uncensored, so I'm guessing it's all censored. I have to say it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. In a way, I even thought the mosaic censoring gave the content a more believable feeling (in voyeur and public scenes especially).
These are the numbers for the channel.
126 DVDs/564 scenes as of 5/20/2013
I joined with 7 days left in my Videobox membership and the prorated price was $7.50.
Maybe the biggest selling point to the content are the fetish scenes. There definitely seems to be more creativity in these scenes than the American counterparts. I should also mention, no scene I've watched has English subtitles, so this does take away some since some of the scenes have 25-30 minutes of story building up to the last 10-15 minutes of sex. To put the amount of fetish content into perspective, 347 of the 564 scenes are listed as fetish.
My feeling towards this channel is pretty simple. If I had joined it for the full month it would have cost in the $30 range just to add it. I wouldn't have been happy about it. Joining for a week at the prorated price though, gave me a pretty good view of Japanese porn without the big price. I would recommend adding it for a week or less. I am going to keep roughly 30-35 scenes I downloaded from it. I still prefer Vivid's channel and even Kink's channel.
And one last note, there are no HD scenes or DVDs on this channel.
