I am normally a HD whore and download the highest quality versions of all scenes that I can get my hands on. This is usually simple, when a scene is marked HD it is, if not HD source, at least high quality. At BangBros, however, I am dumbfounded by the dishonest use of HD labeling.
Every scene in the network has a download labeled HD. While technically they are HD videos being 1280 x 720 or 1024 x 768 @ 3 MBPS the reality is very, very different. For all of the older scenes that were not filmed in HD or no HD source is available they have just taken the god awful 320 x 240 WMV files and re-encoded them to h264 HD resolution. As anyone who knows anything about video encoding will tell you, you put garbage in, you get garbage out. So what does this mean? Well, not only does the HD video look awful, but some scenes are up to 2GB in size! The "HD" video looks no better than downloading the WMV, which is 10 times smaller by the way, and watching it full screen which looks so bad it makes my eyes bleed. To make matters EVEN worse, there is no way of knowing what videos truly are HD and which videos are these hack job re-encodes.
I have seen dishonest practices but this really does take the piss. I have lost confidence in them as I cant download the scenes with confidence that the quality will be good without wasting massive amounts of bandwidth. With other networks like Porn Pros, Brazzers or Naughty America producing similar content without the HD lie I wont be keeping a membership here and I urge anyone that cares about quality to think twice before joining. I used to like BangBros, this is such a huge disappointment :(
I realise ages ago I rated this site without a comment. I agree with the earlier reviewer that this site promises so much, in terms of "real life" tapes. But you'd really have to have arrived from a different planet to believe some of these guys are straight, and that this is not staged...
At first, I wasn't too happy with the new design at Bang Bros. It worked really good, makes the site less cluttered, but the screenshot sips and part of the photo zips were not downloading. In their defense, they did have a note up that they knew everything wasn't working right and it would be fixed shortly. It was fixed within 24 hours. So now, they have really improved the functionality of their site.
The other good news, may just be for me, the model some of us know as Abella Anderson, one of the few models I have recommended to other members on here, once had a solo site called Living with Anna.
I don't know when Bang Bros added it to their network, it is just an archive site now, but this is some really great content of her with some of it coming before her implants. The amount of content of her on it isn't that great, but the totals are: 35 videos, 35 photo sets, 35 screenshot zips.
Up until now I had only been able to find 1-2 scenes of her on different sites and only had a total of 18 scenes, so this site being thrown in to the Bangbros Network, added a big boost for me since it nearly doubled my entire collection of her content.
A few other sites I hadn't seen on here before. Ava Spice. This is a tiny site with only 5 videos, 5 photo sets, 5 screencap sets, but this is yet another site where it looks like Bang Bros adds these no longer updating solo sites to their network as a nice little bonus.
Also there is a Bang Bros Remastered site that has 15-20 remastered sets from the early days of the Bang Bus.
I had first noticed Bang Bros doing this adding of sites that had gone out of business when they added the archived content from The Penny Show. Considering they are still adding new updates to their regular sites and with the much improved navigation in the new site design, it's still easily recommended and even more so if you like finding content like the Living With Anna content.
Just to update Scnitzel's comment below, the last update on this site was posted in November 2006.
If you are interested in the site, it comes with a membership in the Bang Bros main site and, while there was no HD in 2006 (or earlier) the site has made a good effort at upgrading many of their offerings by remastering the old stuff into HD.
The babes and the wedgies are still erection setting, so the site is worth joining for first time members of the site who, as I, enjoy pussy flossing.
Unable to log-in despite typing correctly both US & PW time and again.
Today i tried to log-in and i couldn't. Then, i went on to retype both my US & PW -having checked previously if they were right and if my subcription was still active, which it was- countless times. Afterwards, i proceeded to write an email to custome service. Well, they provided me with new US's and PW's to no avail. I still can't enter the site.
The following happens, when i try to join Bangbros from a european country (i would bet similar will occur for any country with non US-Dollar currency too):
- Bangbros tells me the price for monthly membership: 24.95 USD
- After hitting the button to proceed, i am directed to the Epoch site for credit card information, which is showing me the price for monthly membership now in my local currency (Euro): 27.47 EUR
As of todays exchange rate, 27.47 EUR equals to 36.30 USD. This is 11.35 USD more than what Bangbros listed me as the price in the first place.
I wonder who will receive this extra 11.35 USD, Bangbros or Epoch? Needless to say, that this currency trickery doesn't really support their otherwise good reputation. Other sites/billers go well by just charging USD or whatever their currency is, leaving the exchange to be appropriately done by the credit card company (Visa, Mastercard etc).
Contacting both Bangbros and Epoch support by email (1 month ago) at least gave me one reply from Bangbros to join by the reduced rate, which is also available through this site (and which seems to convert to Euro more accurate). Epoch didn't reply up to today.
I just read the review by Duke and the site sounds interesting. HOWEVER, how can they have a daily download limit of 500 MB? The site facts say that the WMV files are 300 to 500 MB and the MP4 files are 600 to 900 MB. Does that mean I can't download the MP4 files and can download at most 1 video a day of WMV? And this is without using a download manager mind you.
I've been subscribing to Bangbros.com for five years now. I really got off to the last fifty pages of the site but it seemed as time went on, the women kept getting more fake. I can deal with the fake boobs, but fake asses?, stretched skin?, and extreme wide-angle lenses? Come on. I'll go on record to say that the last fifty pages of women on this site turned me on back then but they need to get some different niches.
For all the current subscribers, I have a question about the site. Is there a scene or scenes with Sandy Sweet in the site? They have a pic of her with the words "Staff Picks," but when I look her up, she doesn't show. Just wanted to know.
Long story short I bought a subscription to Bangbros Monday night, after the website wouldnt let me log in, I contacted their customer support. What a joke. They never got back to me, after 24 hours I still couldnt log in and they never got back to me.
Thankfully epoch reversed the transaction, but beware.
I am a member of such adult websites as Brazzers, Naughty America and Videobox and I have NEVER had any problems with them. I will never join bangbros again after this. They may have some nice content, but the lack of HD downloads and shitty customer service makes this one website you should totally avoid at all costs.
After a few month the hd-downloadoption now back. But the downlods stops between a few seconds to 99% compleet. Just two complete downloads in two days constant trying. Tryed diffrent browsers. No problem with other sites.

Don't get me wrong the content of this site is good and regular updates, however despite it 'splashing' 1080p videos over the front page to lure new members, it infact only has 780p approx (not 1080p).This is with a monthly membership. I have heard rumours that if you subscribe for a year you get 1080p, but i do not know if this is true (can anyone confirm please?).
So firstly there is the false advertising.
Secondly downloads for the streaming are for the most part very slow, for the largest 780p videos. Can be 'ok' if v.quiet time.
Thirdly the download options are poor quality versions.
Fourth and lastly I have tried contacting them on a number of issues and each time i have received a 'generic'/non personal reply - almost in reply to something i didn't ask.
oh and this is definately last thing, but last weekdend they had server probs, and couldn't log in. This was case for whole weekend. There was no appology email/explanation email and i'm guessing we will not receive our fraction of the membership back/or added on. SO IN CONCLUSION, YOU ARE DEALING WITH A COMPANY WHO ARE TOO BIG, and i personally would not recommend.
Just signed up and realized none of the latest updates have HD vids available for download. Also there are very limited download options with these vids (either Mobile or WMV). Tried downloading one of the large vids for the fuck of it and it took over an hour. I have one of the fastest connections on the planet and dl's from other sites take a good 5 minutes max. Something's up here. I'm cancelling my membership immediately.
Contacted Epoch about my dissatisfaction with BangBros and received a full refund.
Does anyone know if BangBros limits the amount of HD downloads? I was able to download HD Vids and now they only show the streaming option available. I can still download the large WMV files, but not the HD versions.
It was like this was disabled, there isn't even a button available any longer.
Maybe I'm looking into this too much, but had expected to have my Bang Bros account through today. Instead, it expired yesterday morning. Here are the exacts.
Signed up on February 23rd, 2010.
Membership expired on March 23rd, 2010
Normally this would look right, but February only had 28 days in it. I could even go into the exacts of time joined and time expired to show the loss of several days membership.
Signed up at 11:02 PM PST on Feb. 23
Stopped ability to access at 9:30 AM PST on March 23rd
So, a month membership would equal 720 hours
I had 5 full days in February and one 1 hour day 5x24+1= 121
In March I had 22 full days and one 9 hour day 22x24+9= 537
537+121 = 658
Going by that, I was shorted 62 hours or a little over 2.5 days. Didn't irk me enough to stop me from re-joining almost instantly, but I had this problem one time before with another site. I don't know if it is the site or the billing processor to blame, but 2.5 days is 2.5 days.
At first glance it seems well worth the $17.95 charge for one month. When browsing the home page of the website there is a giant banner in the center with live cams referring to themselves as bangbros.com/chat. DO NOT CLICK to go to the site. After clicking I instantly received an email thanking me for my purchase and telling me there would be no charge at this time. I hadn't even realized I clicked on a charging additional site until I received another email receipt for $40 the next day.
The following day I received another $5 charge for bangbros.com/clips which I wasn't even aware I had visited. Neither of these additional charges ever asked for validation, my credit card information, my personal information, etc. They simply just charged my credit card. After having contacted Epoch, their billing service, I was told this is in their terms of service. I had Epoch block my card from all future transactions through them so hopefully I won't receive any of these aditional unapproved charges. I have no problem with them charging for various parts of their website, but they should really ask for confirmation instead of just charging their already paying customers.
Bang Bros added two new latina niche sites in Latina Rampage and My Life In Brazil. So far the scenes from these have been top notch (and new male talent if you are annoyed by any of the other guys on the networks). It seems the guys at BB work on a niche site for a year or two, abandon it and then open up a new niche site, although some sites have remained constant and updated for a decade (Bang Bus, Ass Parade, Big Tits Round Asses, etc.).
Finally glad to see a latina only site though. Ball Honeys was a mix of black, asian and hispanic. They had a black only niche in Newbie Black that recnetly stopped updating. I'd say half of the girls in all their videos are latinas anyway, probably due to being in Miami, but good to concentrate a storyline on just that.
The site is no longer updating. (It may have been replaced by the Dirty World Tour that is now part of the Bangbros network.) I think you may be able to get it for $10 if you call the support line directly (1-866-346-1785).
