You know, and maybe it's just me, but I am getting sick of this pricing policy that so many of these sites adopt.
In the UK we already pay more than our US counterparts for products bought from the US or the equivalent product in the UK but that is understandable as there are import duties to pay, exchange rates to consider and so on.
Now, with these download sites I am aware of duties and taxes etc but why are we quoted in dollars and then charged in euros.
Videobox is now the EU equivalent and at current sterling exchange rates that makes it expensive.
Why has this changed over the last couple of months?
If it's $17.99 in dollars then how the hell this this magically become 17.99 EU for us in the UK?
The same can be said for all DDF sites.
I think a solid explanation is required and not some pathetic taxation excuse, simply because I own and run a download site that caters for the US and EU and know all my costs and they sure as hell do not conform to the ludicrous figures that these sites are quoting.
Additionally, could Porn Site Review please update their pricing on site details to reflect this? Videobox is currently $17.99 but when you go to join it becomes 17.99 EU.
To put that into perspective: $17.99 equates to about £12 in the UK, at 17.99 EU it now equates to about £16. That's almost a 40% hike.
This morning VB didn't post today's updates, only yesterday's updates were shown. Later in the morning the site is down; no video's, no updates, can't even log in. Stay away, there is no infrastructure, technical expertise or customer support on this site.
I've been meaning to do a new review for this mess but it's so hard to access the site that I may not even be able to do so before my membership runs out. If I do finally get access to the site then I will post a more recent review but for now please, please don't join this site because you will regret the loss of that 20$.
Wow seems like they got some exclusive stuff recently here
Just heard that Julia Ann had done a gang bang scene here
Allie Haze in a gang bang
Jessie Rodgers in a gang bang
Lexie Belle does anal exclusive coming in September
Dani Daniels does boy/girl in september Lily Carter does first double penetration and double anal in sep
also Jessie Rodgers doing anal, I know she has done else where though.
I seem to see also that's lots of the newer movies look really well shot and quite arty style which I love right now so it might be worth a look into, seems like they are heading in a good direction.
Anyone know if you can use a download manager on this site
I must be getting the slowest download speeds I've had in a long time, I'm used to 1500kbs but this keeps starting ok then it goes down to 300-400kbs
Tried to use 2 download managers but it seems to download a webpage of 37k and doesn't get me a download, that said I'm not really used to download managers so i might be doing something wrong, the one I'm trying with is Free Download Manager.
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 am in the middle of a one month subscription because I was attracted by the low price of the site and also wanted to see what a pure video site was like, so take my comments with a grain of salt as further search might reveal that I am wrong about my biggest beef and that is that most DVDs are of U.S. origin!
Which means tons of "enhanced" breasts, shameless overacting when it comes to fake orgasms and the enjoyment of the act itself. All those yelps and screams drive me nuts because they are so phony.
I checked out a few of the Asian DVDs ... what a difference. Much more believable. The site would benefit greatly from more international videos even though they might present a language problem for those who prefer their yelps in English. It's a good site, well worth the subscription fee for those who love videos and are willing to put up with the basic sameness of U.S. productions. However, I think I'll move on after my month is up.
I've been a member of VideoBox on and off 5 times now, and one run lasted for 4 months and of my 2.3 Terabytes of Bottom Drawer Porn I guess at least 1/5 is from VideoBox...
They are the out of town PORN SUPERMARKET...where every vegetable is on display, fresh, ready to weigh, buy and eat..where every milk product is cartoned up, ready to scan, squeeze and pour...where every piece of meat in any colour is freshly cut, wrapped and offers itself to be tenderised to a succulent palette busting mouth watering hunger satisfying taste to meet any diners appetite...but...
I'd like to be able to walk down the Classics isle and not find 1/2 empty shelves and leftovers going stale...
Whilst they have a focus on ensuring as new titles become available they have their cut on VideoBox...it would be nice to see them looking at filling the shelves in the Classics isle, what about the Buttman Series...what about the Ginger Lynns and Amber Lynns and Bobbi and Savannah and Alicyn Sterling and Candy Evans and Tami Monroe...
VideoBox, don't forget that the Baby Boomers are the Cash Rich generation and has needs...
Please try to fill our shelves as well...
Having said that though, I will continue to rely on doing my Big Buy Porn Shopping at the best Porn Supermarket there is...VideoBox.com
It is really disappointing that a site as good and as dedicated as VideoBox would not go as far to encode HD videos with widescreen resolution. I just realized this in one of their most recent additions, "Breakin' Them In #9", says HD 16:9 on the cover yet the videos are still in the standard resolutions that VideoBox offers (640x480 for DVD, 480x352 for High, and 320x240 for Med).
Does anyone know if Big Wet Asses 22 is available?
If anyone has a membership I'd greatly appreciate information on BWA 22, which includes a very rare (possibly her second?) Lexi Belle anal scene. The DVD shows up on the preview page but EA is known for putting stuff on the preview page that isn't available on the site.
Just joined this half-good site again, and again and again...
Half good because the video-quality is generally less than most other places. Better because of the hugh amount.
BUT, man: Joined the cheap way first (9.95), again, because the more expensive DVD-membership has NOT done it in former membership.
And what do I do - upgrade (again), silly me.....
NO NEED - the SOCALLED DVD-quality is NOT better than the socalled high resolutions in video - just MUCH bigger in file-size.
Did some/several downloads of the same files in those two - alleged qualities, but: NO significant difference in vewing-pleasure - or no-pleasure!!
Hope I can stay away in the future.
Do not like your game with us users, VideoBox.....
So, okay, the price is right for PU reviewers, there is a huge selection (enough to make me subscribe three times over the months) but I think TheSquirrel is right when he states in his review that not enough attention is paid to niche content (fetish in his words). He also makes a comparison to a sweet shop and I find, through personal experience that, while they have lots of chocolate bars, there are next to no truffles and pralines to be found.
Everything is so much the same that only the low price kept bringing me back. They really have to start catering to a wider "audience" if they want to keep getting scores in the nineties.
Adding bonus channels won't do the trick.
In my opinion eighty is just about right. Strange that no one else seems bored.
What am I doing wrong because I certainly don't get Maggie's sharp DVD quality when I look at the scenes I download? Some are nice and clear (except in full window) but most are below my acceptable standard even with the high bit rates. And, yes, I am subscribing to the DVD quality level. I also find that large daily updates don't mean a thing if they all basically feature the same sort of action. Niche content is being sadly neglected. Didn't I mention that someplace before?
Against my better judgment I subscribed to this site long term based on this promise:
"FEB 29 2012 - 100 New HD DVDs and a Brand New Site!!!
Do you want more HD videos? Well you're in luck! Over the next 30 days, we're going to be adding over 100 new High Definition DVDs!!!! That's about 400 new HD scenes for March... oh yeah!!!! And there is more! Get ready because your favorite website is about to get even better - we're just days away from releasing a brand new look for VideosZ with tons of great new features. Things are getting better and better everyday at VideosZ ;) "
Well, the month is pretty well up, the web site still looks the same and they are still short (as of this moment) by about 300 HD scenes. If they'll get them all uploaded to their site by midnight (as hinted at by support a week ago) today I will gladly make a most sincere apology.
Addendum: To their credit, in answer to my complaints, Videosz just granted me a complete refund without having been asked to do so. I wish them the best and hope they'll get their HDs up soon.
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.
Over the past four days or so I have been having serious issues with downloads at the third movies network. At first, the issue was only with downloading the hi-def movies but now it's with every file. I've tried to troubleshoot the problem by disabling my DL manager, using a different web browser, etc. with no luck! Now when I click to DL my browser completely freezes up!
I'm not going to breakout in expletives here, but I am fucking pissed!!! This network has some of the highest quality movies on the net, but what good is it when you can't watch them? Really?
I've submitted several complaints over the last few days with NO response. I would ask for a refund but with the customer support at this site, what chance do I have? Oh well, I paid for a month and got about fifteen days worth of a functioning site.
Is this just an isolated case? Anyone else a member at Third having issues?
I "came of age" into porn during the 1980s and watched countless flicks from the 70s and 80s with stars like Tori Welles, Blondi Bee, Erica Boyer, and Ginger Lynn. There were a number of studios that produced the videos I had in my collection, but there was probably none that was so well represented as Caballero Films.
So, as you might imagine I was very excited to see that all these vids were being collected on one site! It's done by the same folks at Pornstar Classics and the first question that comes to mind is whether these vids are also available there, but regardless the site carries a number of flicks from my past that I wondered if I'd ever see again.
I figure I'll probably do a review soon, but I wanted to draw attention to the site for any classic lovers like me and of course if anyone has already joined I want to hear details. On the surface at least, this one looks like a keeper.
If you follow the cancellation instructions on either the website or the email you receive when subscribing, you cannot cancel.
The cancellation instructions on both the website and in the email I received when I signed up are false.
The email I received states: "To cancel the account please go to the cancel link on our member pages." The link on the tainster.com website is to epoch.com. So I tried to cancel via epoch.com - no record found. The tainster.com site states "Please visit EPOCH.COM, our authorized sales agent," Both the email and the site instructions are false. Epoch is NOT tainster.com's authorized sales agent and it did NOT bill my credit card. Ph-ent.com billed my credit card, and there's no way to cancel via Ph-ent.com.
I tried going to Ph-ent.com to cancel and that leads to a site that only allows the user to ask a question by filling in his name and email address on a web form - no direct cancellation is possible at that site.
I sent an email to tainster's support address and requesting a cancellation and an explanation of the misleading cancellation instructions for publication on TBP. I did get a email confirming the cancellation but no explanation of why the cancellation instructions are false.
Epoch is a trusted billing with a very easy web-based means of canceling. Tainster.com is tricking customers into believing a well known and reliable billing company will be handeling the charge when in fact it uses some obscure biller with no web-based means of cancellation.
It must be about time that, in valuation of a web-site, consideration to modern factors be included.
I am disappointed with 'Videobox' (or rather that my beef is valued to only 2%.) with regard to three issues:
1. Downloaded clips are NOT "DVD quality".
2. For those, like myself, who want to edit the clips (to cut the crap out -which = 60-80% of the total-) it is a nightmare to deal with the clips in the editing software, as the clips have been segmented to anything between 50 and 90 pieces. Why is this so? Nobody else seem to be doing this.
3. 'Videobox' is very busy, or full of themselves (arrogant?), as they more often than not can't be arsed to answer emails.
I just tried to use the TBP/PU discount for monthly membership. However, the discounted rate of $14.95/month does not seem to be valid anymore. I can only get the normal rate of $17.95/month for DVD-resolution access.
While $17.95 is not outrageous, it is disappointing to see that the discount no longer works for this site. I used to be a member, but I am now reconsidering whether to rejoin this site.
UPDATE: After working with the webmaster, I was able to gain access to the $14.95 discount price by clearing my cookies. Way to go, VideoBox!
