First off, the stated prices are not correct. The price for a 1 month subscription is €34,90.
I tried to reactivate my old account today and got stuck in the subscription process, while the CC processor was trying to query my bank. It's *very* annoying to see a processor (aloopass in that case) being unable to conenct to anything!
The website does not grant you access. The ticket merchant, GTBill is happy to take payment but then no access is given. No emails to support are answered, (either by the webmaster for the site, or the ticket merchant) The password reset function on the site does not work. A real shame as a previous subscriber to the site, the content is top notch, but now it just appears to be a con. Beware. :(
I joined the site again after quite a long absence and while I don't feel that a new review is necessary there are some things that haven't improved with the site (and a few that have) and I figure I might as well share my experience.
There are now close to 1500 casting scenes and only around 500 hardcore scenes. This is really disappointing, especially considering a lot of the content is old or can be found on other places (Videobox for one or pornstarnetwork) There are some great new scenes that have been added (Aspen's casting is great) but overall I am not sure that this network is worth the very high price, especially since Wakeupnfuck is not included.
Nonetheless, the most disturbing thing for me was a change in Pierre's attitude. He seems really, really concerned about piracy, to the point where he is making it harder to download videos in his member area. I used to be able to download a bunch of stuff overnight, but now the site logs you out after a while. When I mentioned this on the forum Pierre said that he wanted to make it harder for pirates to download his stuff... while I understand his concern, I was a paying member who never stole his stuff and he was making it harder for me to download the scenes I wanted.
Not sure if anyone else had similar log-out issues, but it kinda left me disappointed.
Other than this new log-out the site is pretty much unchanged from last year and everything I said before applies... without the optimistic tone that I had in my previous bottom line, I doubt anything will change for the better here.
The logo "Woodman Casting X dot com" is very large and annoying, placed at the bottom of the video screen. I'm surprised more people don't complain about it. You don't need a very large watermark on the videos (or photos) to identify your company. A smaller, discrete logo will do just fine, or no logo at all.
When you go through the previews of this site and click for example on "462 HARDCORE SCENES", you get list of scenes under three categories:
-CASTINGS + SEX
Are these all included in the subscription? The comment below suggests that at least in May that was not the case but it's certainly misleading if those are separately billing sites. WUNF site has no pricing info or anything.
WUNF site has no entry here in TBP/PU, is there a reason for that? Everything else appears to be on the main Woodman site so I guess all but WUNF is at least included?
As this site won't be listed as an individual site here, figured I would just post my thoughts on it here since it is a woodman site.
+girls are attractive
+HD video quality is pretty good
+support is responsive
+good forum (same as casting)
+multiple video download options
-very expensive for what you get, only like 33 scenes as of now
-updates seem sort of random, and pierre is a pretty big tease on the forum
-most scenes self-shot similar to casting
-SD quality is very poor, so you pretty much need to get HD and these files are huge (3-5 GB)
-Download speeds have been subpar 100 KB/s - 200 KB/s, this coupled with the large file sizes is a bit irritating
-Not sure why this isn't just a free bonus to the casting site given how small it is.
-most material is self-shot, so camerawork can get iffy
I would give this site a 70, some of the content is good and the girls are attractive, but it is small, downloads are annoying (slow, timeouts, etc). I'm not sure where they came up with the price for a site this sized. And while I like the content, it is hard to get at, and far too small for the price given what else is out there. Even though the individual scene prices are steep, I probably would have been much better off going that route, as I will probably only keep 3...
Why does he do castings with girls on their period? Am I the only one that finds it a bit of a turn off for the girl to strip down and he immediatly zooms in on the tampon string? Maybe its just me, but a bit disturbing...
Pretty much agree with dracken's review, however, interesting site, certainly has its share of flaws, but pretty good.
You can now get access to wakeupnfuck.com for 50 euros if you're a fist time sign-on free if you have had a membership with woodman casting x for a year. So far the site is not worth the extra cash since it has six scenes, and they are not extremely unique, although a nice scene with Aspen from the teen core network. But if you've been a member with woodmanx for a while, the deal might be more interesting (there are some mroe deals if you've been with him for two months and so forth, you can read all about it on the woodman forum)
