Comments here are great for warnings and other kinds of mutual guidelines/observations for fellow PUs.
But also good for hints - and this one is almost just positive:
Thumbs up for Karup's PC and Karup's Hometown Amateurs.
It seems like these people takes their job/site - and their costumers - serious. No funny-bussiness or beating around the bush: Just well done sites with fine updates all week. Ending this membership-term soon, but will be back again and again....
Just one thing, though: Wish you guys would make more/even better HD-videos in the future.
I joined Karups PC several years ago. In the meantime, I moved and got a new card. You cannot (as far as I can tell) cancel from the EENT page, and I have emailed support quite a few times, gotten only one response, and silence after that. They revamped the site, and I can no longer access it, but my money is going into the black hole.
I figured i'd make this a comment rather than edit my review, since I doubt anyone would notice that.
I'm going through the older pic archives and for many sets, probably more than a dozen so far, the first four or five pages are simply repeated, extending the set to eight or nine pages. Naturally this makes the zip-file larger and you wind up with a bunch of superfluous files.
Is this an accident or is it done intentionally? If it's accidental, might I suggest fixing it? If it's intentional, I'd ask what the purpose of it is?
I've avoided downloading certain zips I otherwise would have wanted because of this doubling-up issue.
Karups has to have just abt the most absoutely drop dead georgeous girls I have ever seen in one place. The video quality is not the best but decent and with all the fine babes who cares, they obviously put their $$$ in the girls.
Karups PC still has their wheels on the track. Did a review a year ago, joined second time half a year ago and then again now.
First: they have a far better design and better navigation now. Full photo-sets in zip and it seem an even better update, too.
It's a bit amazing with the amount of photosets/videos - where both is getting (a bit) better in quality - and this time I also found some rare/great models (Elise and Hannah - two cute teen brunettes - and Kyra (only photos, alas).
Karups PC still has two problem: The videos are not entirely crisp and most are divided into two (solo) or four (hc) parts. A small amount of hc-videos have full file download.
It's to be recommended - and BTW: They have no hanky-panky about currencies...the 29.95 - in dollars!
Well I like the fact that they offer some of the hottest models that can be seen on AO30 too. High res pictures with 1500px on the long side seem to be a newer feature (have to clarify that) as some of the models I was hunting for that have been shot in 2006 only have sets with 1024px on the long side.
An in all the site's design is somewhat plain and I'd like to see improved navigation e.g. when searching for sets you get a nice list with thumbnails but clicking on the model's name you end up with the set movie and not on the model's summary page. Oh, and b.t.w. no - nothing, nada - information about the models is given.
Download speed is very good at the moment as I constantly reach more than 600KB/s (maximum speed of my connection) using GetRight in order to download content with my favourite models.
Right now I'm quite happy that I joined this site as there's a lot of stuff to see and some dead gorgeous models. Focus for most members seems to be that a girl needs to have big boobies. Well that's not true for me but still I find enough good content to be busy for the next few hours :-).
I was browsing around and took a peek at the site. Clicked a girl's thumb and it took me to the join page. Whoops! But we know that's pretty common. My mistake (was hoping for an enlargement or more sample pics, like they do at ATK Galleria).
Clicked to close the window and ... a box came up offering an unspecified "last minute discount." At the same time, another box came up with lines showing up (being typed) from a "live agent," it said. I think someone was there, reaching out to help me.
I finally figured out how to escape with my virtual, window-shopping self.
Just wondering if there's any reliable research that shows this kind of approach works. Me, I'll just go in and rejoin some day. Devi looks like being part of the "rationale."
Seeing that the webmaster of this site seems so responsive I thought I'd ask the question here.
This is for the subscribers to the site: Are the sets a good mixture of "portrait" and "landscape" style or are they shot mostly in "portrait?"
This is for the webmaster: If they are mostly "portrait" is there any chance of getting the photographers to take more pictures in my favorite format. To me it's a joy to see the whole screen of my monitor taken up by picture. "Portrait" with today's pics takes either too much scrolling, or too much reducing.
After writing my review and visiting the site frequently over the last couple of weeks, I have noted that the updates are even more frequent than I thought, and what they advertise. It is common to get anywhere from 4-6 pic sets each day or every other day, and 2 new movies either every day or every other day. Updates seem to be every day more often than every other day, so that is just a ton of updates.
Just an FYI. I know this is a little outdated, but it still conveys the message. I downloaded the entire site August of 2007, I know that was may months ago, but the site was 103 GB of photos and 103 GB of videos for a total of 206 GB! I am sure it has grown a bit since then. So keep this in mind when deciding on membership options if you want to download the entire site. Or are looking for a hard drive to store it on, better go with at least a 300 GB for this one. If anyone has a more up to date quote please post it.
Also at that time there were about 540,000 photos in about 5,000 sets.
I've had enough time to read the reviews, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm not gonna stay with the site for very long, as it is just too pricey for me. I've had no problem with the content... its just the price.
In this day of Amateur meaning porn star, does this site have any big name porn stars on it, where the content was filmed maybe early in their careers or is it 100% amateurs? I haven't been on a good amateur site in a long time.
I was a member here a few years ago and loved the site, but when it came time to cancel I wound up having to email the webmaster and threaten to put a stop on my credit card. I hope this problem is taken care of. Probably is, since I see no mention of it in any of the reviews.
After seeing the better design and larger pics at Karups Hometown Amateurs, I decided to e-mail KarupsPC and inquire. Just got a reply that they are doing a major site overhaul, but that it could take two or more months to complete, as they have so much content to work into the new design.
It will include a movies search, movies included with the indexed models, and "high res photos," among other things.
Been away from this one for a couple of years. There are some real improvements:
-thumbs in the "latest updates" section
-dates in the galleries
-zip or singles options of 1024 or 1500 in sets from early Feb. 07, and you can download a whole gallery at once (used to be a tedious one-zip-file-per-page affair)
-see nygiants' review for more
One problem, though, is speed. I've gotten a fair number of "404's" and had to reload pages, or the last few thumbs X out and have to be reloaded. It's too sluggish.
Another is getting back to a section from a gallery. Say, to return to page 4 of "Babes," there's no link. You have to copy it in the address bar and have it ready to paste-enter to get back.
A problem they've always had is that the girls have the hands on their butts in too many shots! Like, 9 out of 12 butt shots on a page. They need to do more "oh baby you're so good" butt shots, if you get my meaning ;)
