Pros: -it does provide, to an extent, what it says it does...porn videos, mostly from the late 70s and early 80s
-sign-up seemed to be pretty efficient
-cancelling seemed to go OK, too, at least, I hope so.
-downloading was simple and i'd judge it to be pretty fast
Cons: Here we go:
- as mentioned elsewhere, there is no tagging or search function. You have to pick to DL on the basis of a single screen cap, and a small lo-res image of the (I presume) vhs cover, front and back.
- afore-mentioned images of covers, front and back and low-res...teh zoom fucntion didn't work and saving the pic and trying to zoom it, results in large pixels, long before you can make out faces or read names.
- I found at least two instances where the DL'd clip bore no resemblance to the supposed screen-cap
- many of the screen-caps focus on the parts...you have no idea, who, what face, situation, whatever turns your crank, is in the clip...other than 'parts'
- you can't DL a whole movie. With the selection that's probably not a big deal...but just saying.
- the clips are poorly edited. many, you hit play, and the first thing you see are those parts...maybe later you'll see a face or something.
- ltd selection, and of that selection, lots of Seka and Swedish Erotica.
Bottom Line: As mentioned in a comment, I was led to this site due to a strong nostalgic pull, having recognized a short clip as being from a magazine i had years and years ago. Curisoity overcame me and I went searching.

I totally agree with other reviews...it's not a great site, with a lot of 'compromises' in important areas, such as navigation and content. Other than fulfilling my specific nostalgic yearning, I don't see a lot of value there.

More than many sites I've visited, it is really quite ludicrous to sell access to such a site on a 'subscription' basis...the content that is there you can peruse and make your choices in an hour or two, and be done. And, whatever else might be said, I don't think that there's a lot of new 'vintage' and 'nostalgic' product to be made or found.

Thanks for cueing me to that pat362. I did read the review and take note. Darn that nostalgic tug. The irony might be how the concept of 'value' has changed: I'd guess that the magazine that contained the photos that I remember, probably cost something like $20, in like 1978 or so dollars.

Anyhoo...we'll see.

Thanks for the response...I guess my biggest fear, aside from out and out fraud, is not being able to find the link(s) that allow you to cancel online, I suppose because I had that happen to me once, albeit quite a few years ago. It's self-evident on this site? Do you do it from the service site, or from the vcsbill site?

Any trouble with this site, i.e. cancelling?, etc

Tripped over this site's (Retro Raw) when skimming a few shorts on one of those mega-free video streaming sites. I normally wouldn't have been interested, but the clip was the film version of a photo-shoot that I clearly (:)) remembered from a HC magazine, oh so many years ago.

Curiosity provoked, and now wondering, what experience have people when trying to cancel their recurring (I hate recurring) memberships? I gather that the layout of the site isn't elegant...what are the odds that I'll find the specific clip that I'm looking for?

If I knew I could get in, get the clip I'm thinking of, and get out easily, I might be tempted. Oh, I might have a look around while I'm there...

Thanks in advance...
