An update:

I've figured out what looks to be a workaround for a download manager, but I won't post any hints until after my month has run out. Sorry if that seems jerkish, but I don't want them "fixing" it until my time is up.

So, technically, "download managers: yes, should work" is accurate. Using them isn't simple or intuitive, which ultimately means they are discouraged.

Comically, even at the blazing 150KB/s speeds they provide, it's probably possible to download all ~350 videos in their "high WMV" format in a month. Let that give you some idea of the size and quality of the clips. One can assume Private has access to their own original DVDs, so it makes no sense why most of the clips should be so small and of such poor quality.

I was initially impressed with the compact size of their 1080p encodings until I reached a fast-motion and/or high-contrast section. Size-wise they did a good job, but the quality suffered greatly (single pass?) and I decided I'd rather download non-HD without their artifacts and blockiness rather than waste time on their subpar HD material.

There are ads for other sites (Reality Kings was one IIRC) inside the members area. I'd mark 20 more points off their score for this if I were allowed to. Paying members shouldn't have to look at non-related site ads. If you want to double-dip with advertisements then you should reduce the price. Ad-free price and ad-supported price, perhaps?

Their search/actress links are next to useless. It's almost like they don't know who is in their scenes and instead used broad catch-alls to connect names to scenes. "That lady is blonde and it looks like she's got a tattoo on her ankle," someone at Private.com must've said, "and Kathia Nobili is blonde and she has a tattoo on her stomach, so let's put them both under the Nobili link." Horrible.

And more points off for way too heavy a focus on their not-really-that-erotic snow/beach niche scenes. I bet they are ~15% of all the clips on the site.

(Frankly, I suspect no real time was put into this site and they just ripped whatever movies they had left in a cardboard box after breaking down their 2007 AVN awards promo booth. The website probably started with the moving of some folding chairs and a crumpled up vinyl banner.)

Hey, look at them having sex in the snow! Hey, more snow! Oh good, a snowmobile for them to have sex on. Look, a beach! More beaches! Wow, even more beaches! Hey, a boat! Another boat! Awesome! Oh good, snow again. Holy crap, that guy is wearing a bigfoot costume with the crotch cut out (yep, seriously). C'mon, Private. You were classy. You were the best. Act like it.

I can't say it enough- Don't join. Not even for a month. You'll be disappointed.

Ignorance. Sorry. KB/s.

Thanks and I'll try to edit the main review.
