(Khan - I didn't want to edit my earlier comment because that would make the replies seem strange but if you want to delete that earlier comment and replies I'll understand.)
I emailed New Sensations earlier today and asked them about the download limit and told them that I thought 2GB in 12 hours was unreasonably low for a site that offers HD scenes. Here's the reply I got:
We are not limiting the 2gb per 12hours. It is 6gigs in an hour. And if you are "blocked" it is for only an hour. Or if you let us know, we usually can fix it even faster, but it resets in an hour. We had to do that as we found abusers with download managers that were hurting the streaming and downloading from legit members. Let us know if you are seeing things differently and we will help you. In the beginning (after we switched the site to offer all the new formats and sizes) we had to watch and see what was happening.

I can confirm that my experience with the site tonight is completely different than last night. Last night I was using a download manager to queue up scenes and I triggered the limit. I'm certain that the warning I got was 2Gb in 12 hours (because that's pretty specific) but I'll concede that I may have been mistaken.
Tonight I'm downloading again and I'm well over 2GB but I'm taking things slower so as not to hit the limit. So far I haven't been locked out.
It appears that the site's intention is to reduce site rips and large data transfers by download managers and I can live with that.
I think it's important to set the record straight. I apologize for any confusion and I'll update this as necessary in a review later.
I just joined this network an hour ago with the full-price monthly membership and can confirm that the same (ridiculously low) 2GB limit per 12 hours applies to the full membership too.
I figured that since both bibo and audrina69 had trial memberships that the limit may be applied there. I admit that this was just an assumption on my part and I didn't check the terms of service. (A fool and his money are soon parted...)
Because I've exceeded the bandwidth limit I'm not even allowed to log in so that I can check the Terms of Service to ensure that the limit is CLEARLY spelled out there.
Download limits piss me off. Unnecessarily low download limits mean I'll spend the month with them and that's the last dime I'll ever spend there.
I just found out there is a 2GB download limit (at least during the trial period).
The following message appeared on my screen:
Bandwidth Limit Exceeded
"You have exceeded the bandwidth you are allotted per day. Each member is allotted 2 gigabyte's per 12 hours. This is to ensure that bandwidth is more even around for all members to download at fast speeds all the time. If you feel that this has been a mistake, or that your username/password have been cracked or stolen please contact us at: email@example.com and we will look into this and see if your username has been compromised."
Note: after exceeding the limit, you can't even connect to the site anymore! Given the fact that there is no notice whatsoever about this limitation, I think this is rather cheeky. Maybe the TBP staff could add this to the site description?
Just downloaded some of the 4K videos and at 22,000 kbps these scenes are phenomenal to watch. Who needs 3D when you can have this quality and clarity, especially if you have a 4K screen. The files are big: typically 3 to 5GB.
I've been looking for some Brazzers scenes I've seen on tube sites *blush* that are linked to Brazzers as kind of short low res advertisements but I cannot find those scenes on Brazzers.
There's for example one BigButtsLikeItBig fetish kind of with Sandra Romain, Honey Demon and Danny D. The only hits I can find with search engine lead to site called brazzersvaults.org which looks more like blog, not a subscription site. The scenes cannot be found under Brazzers site "Brazzers Vault".
What's the deal? Is the dot org site even related to the Brazzers? Do they remove old scenes as I could find many images of that scene with Google stamped with BRAZZERS stamp but nothing like that scene under the brazzers.com having looked both actresses scene listings.
A few days ago I received 3 emails all referring to an old (about a year ago) subscription I had with them.
The first 2 said I'd taken out a membership, the third - an hour later - stated my membership had been cencelled.
What's happening here - I certainly didn't rejoin.
'Apparently' no money has been taken from my account, although the card I used for that membership had no money in it, so I can't be sure they didn't try to pull a fast one. I contact Epoch (their processor) and they confirmed no money had been taken, but still seems a little didgy to me !
They still haven't replied to my email requesting details about the emails, and I find it worrying.
Some people will like this site. The photography and lighting are good, the girls are hot. However, in the few dozen scenes I watched the extreme closeups dominated the movie, which is a turn off for me. Photographers that spend most of the scene a foot away from the action do the actors and the viewer a disservice. Disappointing.
I added on a group of sites called the "SuperPack" to my BB membership. I received an email with the joining information (with the same username and password as my main membership) and with a link for customer service that was different from my main membership. I followed the link to cancel the SuperPack membership and it's the same page as the main site where you have to select which site you want to cancel but "SuperPack" isn't listed. My confirmation email said I joined through Dancing Bear (which is part of the Pack) but the site said I didn't have a membership there.
Also, there is a two-part captcha where one part of it has to be the most difficult to decipher that I've ever seen.
I haven't had any billing issues, but my advice is to cancel any add-ons early in case you have problems. I've sent them and email and I'm hoping that cancellation isn't a more of a problem than it is already.
Well.. title says it all I guess.
Whenever I'm downloading something from this site, my internet connection goes kabooom. I can't browse, I can't load other pages. It is as if my connection is being reduced to 56k modem times. I can cap my bandwidth, no effect. This is the only site where this happens.
Anyone else got the same problem? Any ideas how to solve this?
Just thought I'd chime in with my impressions. I've been a member of this site for over a month and haven't had any shady billing issues yet. Like people have said, they do some tricky things to make you think you have access to things you don't, but if you're careful and only click on things that are part of the "BangBros Pack" then you should be fine. It is frustrating though.
The main "HOME" page of the members area is full of sites you don't have access to, but it's displayed in a way that could trick you into thinking you have access to those sites. At the top of this "HOME" page it says: "Your Library - Listing of the products you have access to", but you don't actually have access to most of these sites unless you pay another $19.95. When they say "Listing of the products you have access to", they don't actually mean these sites are part of your current membership, they mean you can add access these sites if you pay more...so, their wording is somewhat deceptive when they say "Listing of the products you have access to"...but problems can be avoided if you are careful and have read the warnings in the comments and reviews here on The Best Porn.
Rather than just take you to the area where you actually have true access (such as the "BANGBROS" tab or "ALL WEBSITES" tab at the top of the site), they start you out in an area full of sites that you don't have access to yet. However, the thumbnails for these sites have small lettering under the image that says "get full access for $19.95", so there is at least something there to indicate that you don't have access yet...but if you don't pay attention, I can see how you'd think you had access to one of these upsell sites.
Basically all you need to know is - when you enter the members area, go to the top and click on the "ALL WEBSITES" tab - this will take you to the sites that you actually have access to with your current membership. This is the area that should be the "HOME" page, not the area they have now.
Also, when you watch streaming videos, there will be thumbnails for other videos along the right side that might be for sites you don't currently have access to. Or when you click on a certain girl's profile, it will show all of her videos - but there may be videos mixed in there that are on sites you don't have access to. So you have to be aware of the sites that are part of your "BangBros Pack" and make sure to only click on those videos. I haven't clicked on the wrong video yet, so I can't confirm if you are automatically billed for sites just by clicking on the video.
Other than these annoyances, it's a good site with a ton of content. I'll have a full review in a few weeks.
Site network looked like it could have some interesting content on it, with some new faces, but it was a big letdown. Not much content on each of the network sites, movies can't be downloaded and pics are not very well-shot. The pics also have way too many duplicate images, and they can only be saved as large zip files. Also, not all videos have accompanying photos sets. If you don't care about pictures or being able to save movies, you might like this network, but you should still probably give it several more months to grow before shelling out for a membership, since there are only about 60 videos so far across the entire network.
Bad enough that it seems the majority of the videos now show up with the message "upsellplus.php" where the "upgrade" is $29.99 for 30 days... but even the "low resolution" 1500kbs per second yield the same upsell message. OK so it costs 19.99 to join but then another 29.99 for the better videos??? What the ell!
Example: "Lexi Bell" searched under the term "Porn Stars" shows 60 results. After clicking the first 10 videos all of them with the upsellplus message (both 2500kbs and 1500kbs) its obvious the people running this site have an issue telling the difference between smart business practices and greed.
I tried to join PG by applying an offer from idealgasm ($9.95/mo. expires on 3/26/14) yesterday (3/24/14), but the deal was nowhere to be found. Just the regular prices on their site. Contacted PG and got no response. Very disappointing.
(yes I know how to use idealgasm links...done it many times)
Edit - changed original title to be less negative...
The website has very scrupulous billing tactics. Once you upgrade to realitykings.com, they automatically trick you and add you to realitykingsreel.com ! they then charge you for "2 sites". $19.95 + $39.95 ! After I contest the billing crooks, they apologize and said once the charges are posted, there is nothing they can do to refund the money. They are just the "billing company" and not the website owner. Be very careful with these crooks and their misleading billing tactics. I have plan to report them to the BBB. Watch for unauthorized bills from MBI-PROBILLER.COM/RK 877-446-0668. Once you give your credit card number, you will kiss your money goodbye. Their policy is "NO REFUND" even if it was their mistake. The guy answering the phone is the FLOOR MANAGER and pretends he is an expert in billing and not authorized for giving out
The PU/TBP link shows a signup price of $44.99 per month and $149.99 for one year. Looks like the special price shown on TBP has been withdrawn. They still offer the 2 day free trial that converts to $44.99 per month on day 3. They also still offer 3 months for $89.99.
Over the past couple months, they've made a few changes to the technical qualities of their videos that I think are worth mentioning. The first is that they've introduced 4K (3840x2160) videos, becoming the first site to offer 4K scene downloads. The earlier scenes are around 11Mbps, the newer ones are a little over 20Mbps. The second is that they've upgraded the 1080p versions of the newer videos to about 12Mbps, which puts them in line with other major network sites on a technical basis.
Since DDF seems to differ slightly from what I found to be very easy with other sites, I thought I'd post a question here on how other users/members do.
What I basically prefer to do is this: find a scene, download it together with a "cover" image, and store them together in a separate folder. This way its easy for me to browse through scenes by the cover images using a mediastreamer connected to a tv.
On first impression DDF seems to be exemplary: an excellent "cover" image showing not only the scene name and the performers but also the site name.
But when adding videofiles into a download manager, and downloading each "cover" images separately, its neither easy nor exemplary to me: the image found on the download page has no file name which relates to the downloaded scene, and can differ slightly from those "cover" images presented when browsing for scenes. The image found on the download page is both smaller in size and can be less informative.
So far I found it to be less than enjoyable manually renaming files/sorting out which image goes with which videofile.
Am I missing something? How do other users do when organizing their downloaded content from DDF network sites?
I joined this network just for KinkyCarmen.com. They had 95% of the stuff that I was looking for there, but after looking through all their content (72 videos plus "screenshots" that are actually sharp in 1200x800 resolution), I found everything except for my favorite Carmen shoot. Despite their claims of responding within 24 hrs, the webmasters are completely unreachable. I haven't seen enough of this network to give it a comprehensive review, but I'm not too impressed.
There are so many scenes and models on this site that it has to have something for everyone, myself included. However the vast majority of the models are very thin, very young, flat chested girls doing anal, dp and lots of solo and lesbian, most not doing any of it well. Not my style.
Couple this with the fact that many of the scenes that are from sites that are supposedly included with your membership require you to buy them, and it fast becomes a big con game. One month is enough for me.
I am currently a member of TMW.
Sometimes I get slow download speeds, not sure why.
I am currently downloading a video, 1.39 GB.
But I am only getting about 270 - 430 KB/sec, which means the video will take about 50 minutes or more to download.
That is the only file I am downloading at the moment; I could understand if I were downloading 2 or more files at the same time, that I would be getting a slow download on each file.
But I am only downloading a single file at the moment.
My max download speed is about 2.3 MB/sec.
So 300-400 KB/sec seems very slow.
I am using DownThemAll, which usually gives me good results.
If I keep experiencing slow download speeds, I will be really disappointed with my subscription.
After entering info on the signup page , after clicking "complete this transaction", I am redirected to a page for "Net Cash" with an offer to pay without a credit card a "local retailer". For $29.95 a month, instead of the discounted $9.95. I have tried 2 different credit cards - both good - and from 2 different computers. Any insight?
