I have mixed feelings about this site. At present I visit it regularly, 5 times a year. This is often enough to download all their photo sets and that's my problem. They only post 30 days of photo sets so a 1-month membership gets me a tad more than 2 months of images. At their monthly rate of $19.95 this costs me $134.00 per year or an average of $.89 per set. That more than twice the cost of the next most expensive site I visit. This is the best tight bondage site I visit (my opinion) but at this price I'm considering dropping out. Now if you are mainly interested in videos, the situation is much better since they seem to retain about 4 months of videos at a time.
I've been on the site for about a week. It seems that the more you download, the slower things get. Up to about 1.5 GB of photos I was seeing download speeds for 2-3 MB/sec. After that the speed begins to decrease. At about 3 GB of photos the speed is down to about 200 KB/sec. Beyond that its slower still. You must wait 1-2 days before the system resets. I've seen this cycle repeat 4 times now. The slowest speed I've seen is 100 KB/sec.
I visit this site about once a year and have visited for about 6 years. I'm mostly interested in still photos, not videos.
This is a very unusual site. The devices and their engineering are very impressive. The models are terrific. The bondage is imaginative. Now that they have merged with Naked Gord, they have a mix of both naked models and body suits. (I prefer skin.) They also have some very good comics.
I have two buts:
1. Still images generally run 100-200K in size. 5 years ago this was ok, but today I think 500K+ is a reasonable expectation. Image size is generally about 1200 pixels. Again more would be better.
2. The ziped photo sets are badly organized. Most of these sets tell a story, but many photos are out of order. If you want to view them is an organized sequence, you have to reorder them yourself and that takes a lot of time. Some sets have duplicates of the same image and some sets include images from other sets that don't belong.
I've just rejoined the site after nearly a 2-year absence. Nearly all the sets have downloadable zip files. This is good, but although all the sets seem to have 3000p images about 1/3 do _not_ have zips in that size. Eight sets have no zips of any size. In the two years I've been gone, 99 new sets were added. At this time there are 583 sets on the site.
With regard to the videos, there is also something unusual. The home page claims 103 videos, but I only see 68 separate shows. The largest videos are marked 3000K. I think this refers to the bit rate. Most of them are 1280 X 720 in size, but some are smaller. The newest video is 980 X 552 with a data rate of 3.12 Mbits/sec. Only 9 videos were not present 2 years ago.
Over 2 weeks on the site I've seen no updates. I sent a message to their support about some bad links and haven't received a reply.
I'm using Safari on a Mac and the interview videos are either duplicates of some of the regular videos or invalid links. The interview videos do not match the thumbnail images on the interview pages. I suspect someone did a sloppy job setting up the interview pages, but why haven't they fixed it?
It's been almost a month now and no updates. No replies to my support requests either. I'm about to drop my membership and it is unlikely I'll join this site again.
I've been a member of Cyber Club on and off for about 10 years. Playboy Plus is the intended replacement for Cyber Club which still exists, but has not added content since Feb 2012. Playboy Plus is still under development. Some of the search features don't seem to work. When finished I think this will be an easier site to navigate than the Cyber Club. At this time the only download videos are MP4's. Some of them are 1080P HD, but many are lower resolution and lower resolution than what was on the Cyber Club site. They also have not yet moved the centerfolds to this site. Sets with multiple models do not name the models by photo. Some zips (1% ?) are damaged and won't unzip.
5 Years ago I posted a review without enough facts to satisfy people. I won't try that again. I've been visiting this site for about 8 years now. I join for a month every 5 months since I can't afford to be a member continuously. The site keeps getting better with more models and higher quality photos and videos.
At present there are about 6 months of new material on the site at any one time. That's about 110 photo sets and 25 videos.
After the first 6 months, set and videos are archived. Archived material is randomly made available for download at the rate of about 10 sets and 2 videos per week. The public archives contain about 200 photo sets and 50 videos at any one time. Like the new material, the public archive items remain available for about 6 months after they are posted. It is also possible to buy archived items individually even if they are not posted for normal download.
On the few occasions that I've had technical problems response has been quick and effective. The site owner often responds personally. This is a high class operation in every way.
I think the PornUsers review is an accurate description of this great site, but I'd give it a higher score.
Sydney Moon is a fine looking woman. This site is not so good. The photos are small, from 500 X 763 to 687 X 1000. File size rarely exceeds 200 KB. The best sets are often found in higher resolution on other sites. Without zips you must download the images one-by-one. There are about 800 sets on the site. About half are Sydney. The rest are girlfriends.
I contacted customer support to ask why the thumbnails for older sets didn't match the set. I was told this was because they are eliminating zip downloads for older sets - 2010 and older. I don't see why that would affect the thumbnails and customer service had no explanation. However, a lot of the older sets do not have ZIPs. From what I gather I expect the zips are in the process of being removed.
Customer service is run by a third-party and has very little information about what's going on on the site itself.
I sent a message to their feedback address and haven't received a reply.
As you navigate backwards in time you will eventually get to the point where the thumbnails no longer match the photo sets! I've seen this a number of times, but the following example seems to be repeatable:
1. Go to the models page and select Nicole Graves (She has lots of sets)
2. Go to page 6 -- all the thumbnails should match
3. Go to page 7 -- starting about half way down the page (Nov 2012) you should see thumbnails of other models, but when you open the set it will be Nicole.
I've been a happy member for about 20 month. Over the past 6 months, Totem, the developer, has made major upgrades to the software and is continuing to enhance and refine its capabilities. They've been releasing improved beta's every 2-3 weeks and official versions every 8-10 weeks for the past 6 months. I expect this will continue for at least 6 more months, but don't let that make you hesitate the betas are pretty good and the main features work property.
Here are the major changes:
1. There is a new pricing structure. It is no longer possible to buy a subscription of any sort. You buy credits in blocks of 2, 8 ,25 or 50. You use credits to buy "cards" which consist of about 20 "clips" totaling 20-30 minutes of play time. Cards are priced based on the technology used to produce them. The oldest cards were recorded in 480p resolution and are not really recommended unless the model is a special favorite of yours. The next oldest cards were recorded in 720p. Until recently the newest cards were recorded in 1080p and can be downloaded in either 720 or 1080, but the price is the same regardless of size and higher than the original 720p cards. Some of the newer 720 cards were actually recorded in 1080 and are slowly being remastered and release in both 720 and 1080. The price of these remastered cards goes up from the 720 price to the 1080 price, but if you already own the card the quality upgrade is free. About 4 months ago, they began releasing 3K (1620p) cards which are available in 720, 1080 and 3K at the same higher price. The 3K cards have much improved production values and are a real improvement even if you have a small screen. Fixed discounts are offered to members depending on the number of cards they own.
2. Full screen mode. The basic mode is to play clips on your working desktop. The girl performs in front of any open windows you may have. A new feature allows one or more girls to dance on a full-screen screen saver type background. Many members have created and posted their own backgrounds enhancing this capability.
I've been a member for about 6 months now. The product is unique and enjoyable. As the reviewer noted it can easily get expensive.
The software is free. They make money by selling shows which they call cards. A card consists of 15-20 individual clips all of the same model in the same costume. Each clip is from 15 seconds to about 3 minutes in length. Some clips are fully clothed. Some clips are strip tease. Some start naked. Some have props like a dance pole. Typically, they will hire one model to create 5-6 cards during a 2-3 day recording session. They release about 5 new cards every week. Most cards are solo acts, but they have a few pairs.
There are a variety of ways to buy cards. A subscription will get you a random choice of cards each week, not simply the newest. This is the cheapest per card, but you have no choice. The most expensive way to get cards is to buy them at full price, $2 per. There is a middle ground. All cards eventually rotate through a demo area where you can sample some short fully clothed clips and buy the cards a half price. I've bought most of my cards through the demo route.
One of the other comments here was that customer service is nonexistent. That's not quite right, but it is not very responsive. However, the forum on the web site has very helpful moderators. Before you spend a lot of money, visit the forum and read some of the message threads. The web site also lists all the available models and shows so you can get a good idea of what's out there.
Over the years, they have improved the technical quality of the cards. The original cards were 480p of vertical resolution. These are now essentially obsolete, but some "best of" collections are still available as "classic" cards. The oldest regular cards are 720p. For the past 2 years all cards were recorded in 1080p. These start at about card 600. However, they were released at 720p. Since about card 900, all new cards have been released at both 720 and 1080. They are now reediting and rereleasing the cards between 600 and 900 in 1080p. They claim and the newest cards have been recorded at about 1600p and that they will be releasing 1600p versions of those cards real soon now.
Other than improving the resolution of the cards, they have been very slow to add new features. The web forum is full of requests and recommendations for improving the product, but very little seems to have been done over the 6 month's I've been present. However, as a software developer myself, I must admit that adding new functions and testing them is time consuming. It is clear to me that they have a very limiting software development staff.
The software essentially presents clips (not cards) in random order. It is possible to make playlists of selected cards to control what you see, but not much more. However, there is third-party software that will let you create multi-clip shows to more exactly suit your tastes.
