I'm a New Member of the Rapidly Growing Ranks of Ex Members of Brazzers
I've had it with these jokers.
No need to repeat the many complaints already posted on PU. What motivated me to finally quit the site was the nasty note I received that is similar to what others have received that said there were 24 simultaneous accesses in 24 hours. Service was restored after I made one silly phone call to a bored operator. Then in doing a surf today I encountered, again, their silly practice of deleting a bunch of content but leaving links alive in the stars list. I guess so they can brag about the number of models they have on their site, or something. How can that practice do anything but piss off their members?
They are either total bone heads or they just don't give a shit about keeping their customers happy.
In a previous comment a special that was scheduled to expire on 8/31/09 offered all ten DDF sites for $35 per month or $75 for three months.
I signed up on 8/28/09 and have already filled a 1 Tb Seagate and feel like I just started. Then I saw largeun's review posted a few days ago and went to the DDF Prod preview site to find that the deal was still there.
I sent a note to the support team asking if the pricing policy changed. They said yes it had; it is now a permanent pricing.
I've never been enthusiastic about paying more than $25 a month for a site, but DDF has such spectacular stuff and so much of it on all 10 of its sites...and a whole lot of it at 1280 HD...that it's, IMHO, a superb deal.
Just a reminder - the network deal runs out tomorrow (August 31) where you can sign up for all of the DDF Prod. sites for up to three months for the price of one. I procrastinated and almost forgot, so I thought I'd post this reminder.
Starting Tuesday they all return to the single site prices...at leat according to the previous posts by the DDF Prod. Webmaster.
See the "news." One signup in August gets you all sites for $34.95. It looks like it's just for the one month (or if you buy the 3 month deal for $79.95 it's good for three months than it's back to the regular price.
I was a member of this network 5 or 6 years ago. I dropped it and forgot all about it until now. I'm cleaning up one of my smaller hard drives moving the keepers to my new 1.5 Tb drive and found some of my D/Ls from way back then. The last (only) TBP review was in 2006 when Spencer gave it an express review and 80.6 points. There aren't any PU reviews. Their preview site says they have 216 sites (I didn't count) but a good bunch of them are streaming only.
I don't remember much about the network except that, at the time, I thought the size and quality was quite good. My stash has a lot of 640's and a lot of 320's but that wasn't bad for 5 years ago. I also remember being annoyed that I had to log in for every site and frequently for each video, a real pain in the butt.
I'd be interested in any comments by anyone who has been a member in the past year or so.
This announcement appears on the Brazzers home page:
To our loyal Brazzers members,
In an ongoing effort to provide you with the best product found anywhere in the world, we have began taking the necessary steps to raise the level of our content to the highest standard available today. We are proud to announce that the hottest adult videos on the planet at Brazzers.com are soon going to be available in the highest video quality porn has ever seen, FULL HD 1080P!
This is no experiment, it`s a full out HD assault on our entire network! All 25 Original Brazzers Sites will no longer be produced in standard definition quality. Get ready for such crystal clear, eye popping adult videos that you`ll literally see the sweat leaking down the side of your screen!
As of June 1st, 2009 Brazzers first HD scene will be released into our membersí area, with new High Def videos added every single day, and eventually plans for the release of Full HD Sites! This will continue to be a work in progress for us as we will adapt our memberís area to provide you with an easy to use and high quality HD Experience.
Other adult networks all rushed to become the first to support HD video, but we all know that blurry widescreen scenes with an HD logo stamped on the corner really isn`t High Definition at all. We at Brazzers decided that we would only make the HD transition if we can do it right, and do it better than everyone else.
We hope you truly enjoy this amazing new content and want to remind everyone that if it isn`t the best quality known to man, then it isn`t Brazzers.com!
If you have any questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I just checked Prime Cups on PU and found that the site stopped updating last Fall, so I went to More Gonzo on PU. More Gonzo once had an assortment of scenes from many of its sites. The PU link now takes you to Ass Traffic, another Dev8 site, that shows its last update was late February 2009.
Does anyone know if Dev8 has stopped all updates and/or is now offering only inactive sites???
As a member of Brazzers, I was offered a $10 monthly membership to MoFo's. So I'm taking one for the PU team and sacrificed two Big Macs so I had the money to sign up and see what's really going on with this new site.
I signed up yesterday and found a site that is, not surprisingly, very similar in format and feel as Brazzers. The search function isn't quite the same but it works.
Now the bad news. Right off the bat I went to my all time favorite porn star, Avy Scott, and found that MoFo's had, reportedly, one Avy scene. When I went to her page, however, the page with the scene should have been had just her bio.
So then I went to another in my top five, Carmella Bing. The scene appears on her page but the link is broken.
So then I decided to see if anything at all worked and, voila, I was able to download two videos. But the download speed are very slow. The auto-logoff terminated both downloads before they were finished.
Then I went to the Support page and found the online support WAS AVAILABLE! So I clicked on it and got a message that the online support is down so I had to complete an email template. They promised an answer within 24 hours.
I got an automatic email back that promised a reply in 1 to 3 days. We'll see.
So far, I'm impressed by the promise but unimpressed with the delivery.
One last matter, the sign up now promises just 1 update a day, but the actual rate is 4 scenes per week.
If you want the $5 TBP/PU discount it's available only if you navigate immediately to the JOIN NOW page from the home page. If you choose to browse the free tour to see what they offer and then try to join after that tour, you will not receive the discount.
However with all the recent negative comments posted here, and with that last little bit of intentional misdirection by the site, I decided I really wasn't interested after all anyway so I decided to say the Hell with the site.
I signed up early afternoon of 3/23/09 for the 2 day trial and had full access all afternoon and evening...and into today, 3/24, until afternoon, about 24 hours.
Even though Epoch's confirmation dated 3/23/09 at 1:35pm says "Today's charge is: $3.95 for a 2 day period. Membership renews automatically at $24.95 every 1 month until canceled" I now receive a message when I try to sign on that my subscription has expired. Attempts to get an explanation from customer service at the site and at Epoch are not answered. I did not cancel and actually planned to let the trial roll right into the 1 month membership.
I'll update this comment if and when I get a response from someone at the site or from Epoch.
UPDATE 3/25/09 am (16 hours after loss of access and 12 hours after first communication attempt) - Epoch responded quickly and said that my account shows as up and active and that I need to contact the Webmaster. No reply received yet in response to three separate communications to the webmaster and website.
UPDATE 3/25/09 pm (24 hours after loss of access and 18 hours after first communication attempt) - Still no reply from either the Webmaster or the site's customer service department. In order to avoid a renewal at full rate I canceled my membership through Epoch. I really liked this site based on the short time I had access so I'm disappointed that their support function(s) is so inept and nonresponsive.
The pricing is discounted for TBP/PU users. The monthly price, if you access the site using the TBP/PU link, is $29.95 for the first month and $24.95 for each succeeding month. A 3 month membership is $59.95 instead of $74.95..
I found Stunners.com when I did an asktiava.com search for Diane Deluna (a new, totally gorgeous, babe on Twistys) and did a quick browse of the preview site.
The "join now" price on the site is $24.95, so I did what I always do, I checked back here to see what info I could get about the site and found that the PU/TBP price is $19.95 a month when I followed the link from here to Stunners.com.
It looks like a high quality site and at $20 a month it may be worth a go...but Drooler's comment posted here last year says it may not be that large and/or that exclusive, so I'm back to the "thinking about it" stage.
This is just a note about a site - JanaRocks.com - which is a single girl site for Jana Jordan, who is a babe I found on Twistys (Jana Foxy) and a fabulous set of photos and video on FTV Girls (Yana).
My libido got the better of my common sense so I decided to drop $15 for one month on this site (no trials).
About 15 minutes ago my charge through CCBill went through and during that 15 minutes I drained all 9 videos. All nine are G rated (not even her bra comes off in any of them) and the site looks like it would be tame even by You Tube standards.
I will be checking out the 61 photo sets and the "Jana's Friends" section and will prepare a formal review when I'm done.
Bottom line at this point is that I think i may have just blown $15 that would have been better spent on 3 supersized Big Macs.
If you had any thought about signing up for JanaRocks.com, I suggest you wait for a day or two until I post a review.
The site now boasts 5,003 videos as of 8:00am Pacific today and they continue to add 5 a day (that's a rate of 1,095 per year). They have the largest number now and will be insurmountable as we go forward (unless they are insurmountable already).
I was a happy member of Twistys last year with a 10 month subscription that was not automatically renewed. When the subscription expired, the same deal ($99.95 for 10 months) was no longer available so I "moved on" to other sites.
When I saw a comment about a cheap 2 day trial for Busty Ones (one of 6 subordinate sites that partner with Twistys) on PU, I decided to go back to the PU discussions of Twistys to see if there was a short "trial" available there as well. There was not, so I clicked the link into the Twistys site (that's the way to get the $19.95 per month TBP deal). Lo and behold, I found that they offered a $59.95 [b]six month[/b] price ($9.99 per month). That's a deal that's equal to the $99.95 for 10 months deal I had earlier) and was too good to pass up.
I signed up immediately just in case they changed their minds and pulled the deal.
The changes to the site were quite significant, especially the 6 partner sites and a full members forum that had some good discussions in the technical section. (That shows a pro-active attitude on the part of the webmaster. Offering a forum like that can be very risky for a site that doesn't have its shit together as Twistys clearly does.)
Then I did a quick survey of the various sites and concluded that they were good. My (superficial) rush run-through of the six sites disclosed a few duplications (same stuff on 2 or more sites) which makes no sense to me.
I'm very much looking forward to exploring the sites again.
