Happy to see some lingerie sets in the recent updates.
This is another site I check almost daily for their latest updates and am pleased to see that they actually updated with some sets that feature lingerie during the past week. I am hoping that great day will come, and soon, when I see enough updates like it so that I can return to what once was my MAIN mature site. There is nothing like a mature woman wearing mature clothing, including panties, bras, stockings and garter belts :-)
The "comments" section of this site is almost starting to read like a personal blog of mine. Praise, then condemnation, then praise again etc. etc. I am starting to be deeply embarrassed about the whole thing as I look back on what I wrote previously. But here it is, in a nutshell (and I hope it will also be my last comment on AO30):
I have looked high and low for a good mature site over the past few years, found some that were good but also a lot that were not so good, and now, after approximately four years, I must say that despite the perceived negatives I have bitched about on a regular basis .... models forgetting to bring enough underwear to a shoot, many models being too young for my taste, the introduction of hardcore .... this site has nevertheless turned out to be the best in its niche. For me!
I have, consistently and with ever increasing despair, checked out most mature sites but won't waste any more time looking for something better. So, I'll stop sulking over not getting my way often enough and will just accept the fact that OVERALL this site gives me what I am craving after all, even if it is not on a daily basis.
So AO30, my apologies for my wavering support. As a token of my repentance I have just re-subscribed! :-)
Not even for Tina! Judging by All Over 30's latest updates they are still on their descent into the depths of ever increasing hardcore material. The place crawls with "Ladies in Action" and "Ladies on Ladies" updates. I get that already at Videobox, when I go to AO30 I expect to see solo mature ladies stripping with a bit of masturbation thrown in. That's how I remember their golden age.
However one man's loss is another man's gain. Their new business model (and my plaintive wail here) should get them a lot of new subscribers who are always clamoring for more hardcore!
Is anyone else experiencing extremely slow speeds at the moment? Right now I am downloading a picture set at 94 - 125 KB/s with 11 minutes remaining on a zipped picture set! This has been going on for about a week! All my other sites are downloading at their normal speed of between 1.5 - 3.00 MB/s.
BTW,strange things happen when using Firefox DTA. Speed will be blazing fast but the download gets dropped when it's about 95 percent complete and start over again .. and again .. and again!
Okay, so I grandly proclaimed the end of a love affair a few comments ago but this mature site is really in my blood and I simply couldn't resist re-subscribing. And I'm happy that I did.
I don't know if they went through a dry period last time I was a member, or if my personal taste was way out of whack when compared to that of the majority of their members, but in any case frustration eventually drove me away.
This time I am being overwhelmed (at least initially) with beautiful new models, with plenty of picture sets that appeal to my taste, with videos that have lightened up considerably for the most part and if they stopped updating with my kind of material right now I would already have enough to have made a month's stay more than worthwhile. Thank you, Mrs. Crazies, you've finally thrown a drowning man a life preserver. Your site is still Nr. 1 among the mature sites.
Your review of All Over 30 was interesting, thanks - and I think I know what you mean by 'mainstream glam' - (actual) pearl necklaces and the like :| Do you think I'd find much else there that I didn't here (Karups Older Women)? /Quote
Any reference I usually make to 'mainstream glam' refers to the typical outfits young models are asked to wear, play uniforms, gaudy skimpy outfits & the like. All of which I feel, look a little sad on a more mature model.
I haven't been a member since my last review.
Since then, my earlier comment here, dated 12-01-09, still holds true for me.
BTW It is always worth reading folks replies too for extra perspective.
Looking at the sites 'Recent Updates' masturbation, toy play & hardcore still seem to feature pretty large, so I suspect things generally haven't changed much.
Unless there is a current member able to update me?
As you can tell by my review, and by my various comments, AO30 has always been more to me than just another site. I have subscribed over and over again and even though there were periods of drought for me, there was also the odd brilliant set of pictures that compensated for the many that were just so-so, but I must say that the disillusionment is getting the better of me.
For one thing, many of the new models lately have not really been that appealing to me. As someone else wrote in connection with this subject, mature models are exceedingly hard to come by, so I can't blame the site or the photographers for this but it's the sad truth that there haven't been that many that managed to stir my blood lately. They might have if they had worn some slinky lingerie, darn it. A woman doesn't have to be beautiful to be alluring and sexy! And this brings me to my,(granted) purely subjective, disappointment with the majority of the shoots, because sets offering pretty lingerie in a reasonably drawn out strip tease (which is my niche) are exceedingly rare because most models have gotten into the modern habit of going "commando," because once that dress is off that's it! Maybe a foam rubber bra now and then but no more!
However, my biggest disappointment is with the videos. They are all marked HD, they all have the right specifications to qualify technically, but most are dark and certainly not as crisp as true HD should be. The picture when viewed in full window is frequently blurry and washed out looking, there are exceptions, of course but not too many.
I've downloaded quite a few that contain my favorite models but haven't kept a single one because, when I put them side by side with videos from Anilos or Reality Kings (and their downloadable files aren't even HD), for instance, I find them sadly inferior.
And so, once my present subscription is up, I think it will be good-bye. This time most likely for good. And somehow I feel like a traitor because I have developed an emotional attachment to this mature site over the years and feel almost protective of it.
So, on a more positive note and in order to appease my conscience let me say to all those who enjoy plain nudes, with little or no adornment (after page one of a given set), don't let my rant get to you. If lingerie isn't that important to you and if you are more into pictures than videos then AO30 is, still and all, a darn good matures site!
I keep going back to this site over and over again because they appear to be the only quality site when it comes to mature women, but I invariably get frustrated because there are so few updates that appeal to lovers of really mature women over forty or to lovers of soft core. Too many dildos, too many b/g videos and picture sets have pushed their way into this site which has cheapened it in my eyes. No doubt, some will subscribe now who normally wouldn't have because of the introduction of harder material. (see comment below) But I can't get rid of the feeling that it was a better site before. Purely subjective and personal!
Any current PU members currently have a membership to All over 30?
I'm just curious if there are any PU members who currently have membership to this site. I'm trying to understand how many (approximate) videos exist for the "Ladies in Action" category. This category is the B/G hardcore category and the section I am most interested in.
Am I right in thinking that on the whole the outfit selections are largely unchanged?
I am always hoping for more appropriate mature attire:
Formal, smart casual , real uniform etc which I do appreciate there is as well, but I still see a few tacky play uniforms featured in recent update section.
Does that impression hold true in the members area?
I had let my subscription to AO30 lapse, in order for them to build up new sets. Saw TORI on a TGP, had to rejoin immediately after feasting my eyes on those samples ! Happy to see many new models on the site. Also my previous favorite YOLANDA has some girl-girl sets added since I left. Waist long hair, full figure !
I was going to edit my previous review and up the score by ten points but because too much time had lapsed I would have had to write a new one so I'll praise AO30 through this comment:
This site has gone through a very positive change. Since May, most videos are now available in HD 1280x720, 3751 kbps format, there has also been a vast improvement when it comes to the picture sets, they are now being offered at 1600x2400 and many of the older sets are being remastered to the new, larger size. Hooray, it's an unofficial 95 for AO30 now.
Oh, yeah, almost forgot: all of the new interviews I have watched so far were conducted by WOMEN while all the scenes (so far) were devoid of embarrassing comments by male videographers, that's got to count for another couple of points. If I don't watch myself I'll give this site a hundred yet! :-)
P.S. July 16: I should clarify one statement a bit: Since May all NEW models are being shot in HD, in today's large update there was not a single HD quality video to be found because this site still updates from mostly older stock that was shot before May. They do make a good effort to convert picture sets and videos but, in my estimation, it will be a while before all the daily updates contain HD.
P.P.S. July 30: There has not been a single update in HD videos this week. I am hugely disappointed because the presence of HD (finally!!!) was my one and only incentive for re-subscribing. I feel I have been scammed and take back anything complimentary I have written in this remark. Picture sets are still mostly unimaginative and boring with the ladies constantly forgetting to bring enough underwear for a shoot.
P.P.P.S August 12: The end of a disappointing month. I like the site and wish it well but will give it some time to really improve before I will re-subscribe.
My intial gushing seems to have been premature because there are a lot of videos offered to this day that are of inferior quality (compared to HD) and as I stated above their photographers have to get a bit more inventive, a lot more inventive. One good sign, one of their photographers went shopping this weekend for some old-fashioned lingerie. We'll see if it will show up in the sets in three months, or so.
Demand for quick updates affects quality plus niche
I joined this site earlier in the month after scanning good reviews from others here. However, when it comes to the quanity of the site which is great, the quality of the models tends to be affected imho. But, I do know that the niche of real mature models gets in the way of finding a lot of models because of reasons I'll get in to some other time. Therefore, I have to say that the models here that I find attractive are far in between the lousy ones. I'm thinking the demand for new models and quick updates is the culprit. Don't get me wrong, this site does A LOT of things right and is near perfect in all those aspects. Also, I understand quick updates is very attractive to customers. I just have to say, a lot of these models look like they weren't even attractive in their teens, 20's, or even now. I feel I have an okay eye for natural, mature women and I know women can blossom even more as time goes on but c'mon...Does anyone else agree or what. I think updating less here would get more quality models, which I think this place needs.
I was a member of this site some time ago and while I liked it in general for catering to the fans of mature women their videos were horribly inadequate. How are they nowadays? Anything approaching HD quality yet?
The longer I stay the more I like this site and as of today there are 300 different models featured on AO30. That's a variety of gorgeous girls I've never seen before - speaking about the ratio of quantity vs. quality - on a mature site :-)
I joined June 19, had access for one half day and my name and password hasn't worked since then. Have contacte consumer support 4 times without a reply. Has ANYONE had any trouble like this before?
One of the reasons I joined was because of the good reviews about customer service. Would like to hear if anyone else has had problems similar to this.
I can understand problems with usernames, passwords, etc. I can't understand no responding to my 4 feedbacks. Didn't even get a response when I asked for my password verification.
Can't recommend this site at this time, but it looks like it could be good.
In the reviews I've seen a basic trend: not enough girl/boy and too much solo. However, what's the breakdown on what they do have? I didn't really get a sense of how much girl/girl content there is vs. the solo. Do most models have videos and, if so, is there a standard type of content to their videos? This is really where I'm not sure if I'd join because the price seems high, but of course I haven't seen the members area yet!
Where to begin...Firstly AO30 is simply the best mature site I`ve ever joined..and I`ve joined quite a few!
It now upates SIX days a week with 4 or 5 sets/videos each time.
The quality of the photos are second to none and you can choose an extra large image for most of the sets.
What I`ve found since joining the site is that on looking through the large model portfolio you "discover" yet another mature hottie and then go to her model page to enjoy the photos/videos.My personal favourite is Ruby...she is just magnificent!!!!!
Anyway, I can`t recomend AO30 highly enough..quite simply the jewel in mature porn
