Been Charged for Extra Site Without My Permission !
Whilst inside the member area for Mega Site.com, I clicked on a link to the DVD site......"Click Here for Access to DVDs" it said.
I was then auto-charged another 10 Euros and given membership.
It didn't ask me expressly if I wanted to join, and a credit card form did not appear either. Yet I was charged the amount.
I may not have minded but the DVDs on downloadporn.com aren't even downloadable !
I dare not click on any links now, in case I'm charged for other sites. This is disgusting.
I looked back at the URL the link pointed towards and it siad....
safebilling.com / instant_upselling
I have never seen this before...is it legal ?
AFTER A CONVERSATION WITH A MEMBER OF THE www.THEBESTPORN.COM STAFF, I SHOULD ADD THAT THE LINK ACTUALLY SAID "CLICK FOR FULL ACCESS TO DVDS". RICK FEELS IT WAS CLEARLY AN INSTANT UPSELL.
HOWEVER.....I have never seen this type of thing before....I was searching for the DVDs whic I believed on the strength of a user review, were free to access. What I found was a stealth charge, whereby my explicit, contractual consent - via a secure signup page - was not presented to me.
Even it is legal, contractually it wasn't ! So, in terms of contract law, there was no clear, explicit offer and acceptance.
Very few of these videos on the 38 sites are in HD.
In fact I have yet to find 1, although many have banners on the front of the main page saying they are in HD or even full 1080p HD.
Average bitrate is only 1Mbps (very average 2-3 years ago), even though they appear to be encoded in H264.....unfortunately if the source code is poor quality, then a lossless encoded video, will be too ! This really does seem to be VERY misleading indeed...absolutely blatent.
Additionally, when they have re-coded a video in H264, not only is the resulting quality the same as the WMV version (and same sixe), for some reason they have managed to stretch the picture to wierd sizes such as 640x426.....it is distorted as a result. That size should be 640x480....thereofre it looks stretched.
Here is a typical read out from an MPEG4 analysis application for a typical "Hi Definition H264" on a typical Mega Site sub-site:
Just joined today.
Sample vids downloaded at over 250k per sec. From members area, 3pm in UK, getting 20 k per sec.
Something wrong there. A 200MB 15 minute film, will take 2 hours to download.
I have contacted support, and will include their response in my full review to follow.
I WAS GOING TO DELETE THIS, BUT HOUGHT I'D KEEP IT IN AS THE SUPPORT IS REMARKABLE.
Support got back to me within 10 minutes...yes, 10 minutes! They sent a link to a program that traces the route of your connection.
After downloading I sent the log back to him and he said there was a "slow-down" between the US and Europe. And, he was right. Everything is downloading at less than 30k from the States, but fine from the UK and europe...wierd ! So, what a coincidence that the minute I join Nubiles, this bottlekneck occurred.
Upshot, is that they are going to extend my membership as long as the "delay" continues. I guess they'll see when I'm downloading stuff ! Well, that's impressive support !
Will get back with my review ASAP. From what I can tell of the samples....it's looking very promising !
Speeds excellent now during day....evening not so good, but problem is traced to routers used between my and their site. BT's problem clearly !
Joined again last month. Not worth a complete review but need to report a couple of things: FIRST: the site is still very slow...can still only download clips (10-15 per 90min vid) one at a time - you can't even browse the site whilst downloading.
SECOND: you now have to constantly re-login, every 20 minutes or so - WHY ? !!! It has become a real chore to download stuff from here and I have told them I won't be re-joining.
THIRD: the rate of updates has reduced. It used to be 2 full vids per week - not great I know - but now they've taken to uploading 2 Half-movies per week - sneeky !
FOURTH: quality - despite many HiDef sites out there - has not improved - 2000kbps may have been "good" a couple of years ago, but it's pretty mediocre by today's standards.
CONCLUSION: Hey Seventeen Corporation...you'll have to get up early to get one over on OneMan....very early ! Smarten up your site or you will lose custom - there is a lot of decent competition out there !
The most annoying thing, is that even if they claim you didn't uncheck the box for the DVD sites 3 day trial.....they do not send an email to confirm this trial at $10 and subsequent rebill after 3 days....!
This proves it's fraudulent......only 1 email is sent....confirming trial access to AllTeenRev and that you can cancel after 2 days. BUT.....nothing about the other one !
This is clearly fraudulent as you have no way of knowing about it unless you check out the transaction page at their credit card processor.
I recently joined again for the full price and having come to re-review it, I've just noticed that we have a discount now !
Well at this price it is a must for fans of teen-stuff.
Well worth 90% if the price is taken into account -which of course it shouldn't be with the new rules.
Jeeze...could have saved a few pennies if I'd looked here before rejoining !!!!
It's a shame they have such a prolific DVD market in Europe...this is probably why they are strictly limiting the quality of the video on the website - this could be a cracking site if they upped it a little to full DVD qulaity - but it 'aint gonna happen ! That's economics.......!!!
The vids are not (although they "appear" to be so) HiDef at all.
A WMV HD File is around 50MB per minute. You cannot compress it any more. These are a quarter of that although "appear" to state they are around 6MBs in the foot of Media Player. There is something wrong with the coding, or it has been "interfered" with to make it state 6000kbps - yet the size gives it away !
Just looking at the samples makes it very clear these are not HiDef such as the likes of the other "HiDef" sites reviewed here.
They would not allow you to only download "low def" samples to advertise a HiDef site.
Also, the review site that the actual site links to, carries a number of similar comments to this !
Just my 2 cents here: I note in a number of reviews the use of the term "skanks" or "skanky" to refer to girls that maybe you find less than extremely attractive.
I would really like to say here that I feel that all actors in these movies/pics, are human beings and do deserve our respect.
If you can't think of something good to say about them, then why not say nothing. All these girls are loved by someone, they are daughters, sisters, mothers and friends...lets show a little respect here !
(Please don't flame me about this post - I will not respond, or even read any replies. It is my opinion and I feel no need to defend it)
Just posted a detailed review about CaseyHays.com (which is part of this network).
I will review the entire Network soon, probably summarising the main points that will appear in my reviews on the individual sites worthy of a review score. Early indications is that it will be a high score ! Just give me a little time. Too much writing and not enough viewing, is after all, not good for one's soul....lol ! And besides, I've lot of stuff to look at. Bye for now.
I joined this site on BestPorn's recommendation, but maybe it's my eyes or my software -although all my media players codecs etc are up to date - but I found all the videos rather "jerky".
Using a video analysis tool, it appears that all the videos have been recoded from NTSC to PAL. As a result 5 frames appear to be missing from every second of all their videos ! You see the original DVD's from which they are ripped - were in NTSC - 29.9 fps. But the resulting wmv's are 25 fps. Go figure. It may explain why they were able to offer the site so cheaply ? But they seem to be doing the same with the "newer" higher-def versions - so I guess the people transcoding the originals are still doing it the same way - one question to them - why ? !
For me however, they just ain't smooth - I have had no such problems with videos from any other site - so I cancelled my membership and that was that!
What I don't get is why just about every site on the web prases Videobox so highly. Maybe it is my eyes ?? !! - I'm off to the opthalmist - just in case !
