Current member, had been a member before and really like how they have improved the site. VideoBox is still tops with their ability to create a custom clip but for everything else VideoZ is it's equal or better. I some areas I think they have better selections than VideoBox
I've turned into a paranoid sucker about these pre-checked cross-sells. (had some bad shit happen with that elsewhere)
So a question: anybody here experienced ignorance of unchecking those pre-sells?
About content after doing some new preview-browsing and thinking about a rejoin (did not have any problems with that pre-checked stuff earlier, here):
asmith12 gave it 75 with a major cons:
"-- with a few exceptions, same old, same old."
This time I do not agree with asmith - I find the updates during the last 3-4 months at VideosZ much better than at the main competitor, VideoBox.
I think the words: "same old" really goes for VideoBox, whereas VideosZ is far more into newer stuff from more different producers - worldwide.
I avoided this site in the past because of DRM, but finally joined today.
This site blows Videobox out of the water. Why? You have the TBP discount here, and they have a much better selection of material. I can't see getting through it in a month.Plus the download speed I'm getting is 1.8MB/s! Fastest I've had on any site I've been in.
I decided to give this site a spin for a month. There was a nice $1.95/2 day trial offer for ZTOD.com when joining - that's a pretty good deal since membership - including trial membership - to ZTOD.com includes membership to ThirdMovies.com and BlackIce.com.
I don't care about Black Ice, but Third Degree does some nice stuff, as does Zero Tolerance. One thing I found, though, is that both those sites now offer HQ downloads - they look fabulous, but play haltingly on the 2 media players that I tried playing them back on - too bad - longer download time, less enjoyable results. The 2nd largest download option - the 720p option - gave me better results on both sites. When I was cancelling my membership to ZTOD.com - I would have been whacked with $34.95/month if I didn't cancel within 2 days - I was offered a membership of $29.95 - I didn't take it, but the trial offer was a sweet deal, even with the playback issues - sometimes video playback freeze gives you great images.
I have had a problem downloading some of Videosz DVDs because, even though I am properly signed in and can download most other DVDs (scenes) without a hitch, there are some videos that will pop up a screen asking me to sign in again with my username and password.
I went to their self-help section, informed them of the problem and got the reply that it might be that I was trying to sign in incorrectly!!!
My reply was that I WAS signed in when this happened and was hoping for an explanation from Videosz why I was asked for the information all over again from WITHIN the site.
In reply I got an email that quoted my reply to their confused attempts to "help" me first time around and asked me to resubmit it properly through customer self-help and not through an email.
No attempt to be courteous or apologetic and if the person responding had paid closer attention to my original question in the first place there would not have been a need for a further email and explanation on my part.
So, thumbs down when it comes to customer support for their inability to interpret calls for help properly and for their indifference.
It's enough to stop me from re-subscribing in the future. I like support persons who appreciate my custom.
VideosZ is a damn fine site - a site I've become a little happier with than Videobox - lately.
But - alas - there are still some/a few files that are DRM-protected - and even as a member it's not possible to play these files - the license acuiring does not work.
Ok, it's all older stuff, but I found some favorites here, so...too bad.
It looks like they're cleaning up among the older ones of those now 5250 dvds, but still...
As of January 2009, all movies are downloadable as 640x480 DivX, or 640x480 H.264 MP4. This is an upgrade from the previous encoding format of 480x360 DivX, but like previous updates older movies remain in their previous encoding - no effort is being made to re-encode all previous movies.
The watermark still remains, but it has become more subtle and more transparent.
The members area has changed only subtly - the lone change is the way the download options are presented, everything else is the same.
They now offer a 2-day trial, full access, for $4.
A lot cheaper than one month, and even cheaper than VideoBox (okay, a lot shorter too), but it is a cheap way to join and download some videos that you may not find elsewhere.
WARNING: Make sure to UNCHECK the box on the signup page for the Brazzer's Network trial (1 day for $1, then recurs at a healthy $40 monthly). You shouldn't have to scroll any, but it can be very easy to miss, as it is in the same size and style font as everything else.
Hey I joined recently, it's handy that I don't have to download a movie before I can watch it.
I can play forward in the movies without waiting..buffering which I had before with 3 other porn sites.
Quality is also good for me, but the most important is that I can check all the movies online and play it fast forward.. because sometimes you want another movie.
Myself have not seen DRM with movies that I had download.
