||+Lovely European ladies, many of them the tried and true
+Launched with lots of content in Nov 2010. Currently has 156 photosets and 100 videos.
+Video streaming available, full-screen with built-in FlowPlayer, but see cons.
+Videos (mostly 10-20 minutes long) downloadable in both wmv and mp4, but see cons.
+Large photos: 3456x5184 pixels and vice versa
+Zips download quickly, but see the cons!
+Some girls who have been off radar for a while: Ally (Eny), Gwen/Pia, Lucy Lee (but only 1 set), and Monica Schimkova. They all look great!
+Some variety in shoots (indoor, outdoor, solo, girls together, lingerie/no ďAlpineĒ dress). But itís mostly ďAlpine dress.Ē
-Some purely non-nude sets, and in many, the girls don't get completely nude anyway.
-No model index
-Thumbs of galleries only viewable 10 at a time
-Thumbs of pics in each gallery only viewable 10 at a time
-One photo size in zips: 3456x5184
-EACH ZIP is of the TEN PICS in a gallery youíre viewing (but see the neat workaround tip from anyonebutme in the replies to this review).
-Each zip in a gallery has the SAME NAME: modelname_pics_gallerynumber.zip, so YOU have to rename each one.
-Individual pics available only at 954x634
-Paging through galleries is sometimes slow.
-Videos are 320x240 in both MP4 (425 kps, 25 fps) and wmv (520 kps); full-screen playback looks bad.
-Streaming playback image is good, but bandwidth lacks, so itís choppy on the computer monitor.
-Watermark is too big and winds up on the subject sometimes.
||I sure donít care for the navigation. Itís not confusing so much as itís tedious. Itís clear enough what you have to do to get the photo content: Itís the porn site equivalent of stamping, addressing, stuffing, and sealing 500 envelopes by hand. Why not have all-in-one zips?
And why not have them in more than just the mega-cutie 5184 pixel size? Iím sure that some folks would prefer an option of 1600 pixels at least some of the time.
And the videos, those I guess are intended for unoccupied-hand-held portable devices. They probably look nice on those. Well, maybe not a big Ďol iPad.
More on the videos: Never heard any music playing on the ones I viewed. Itís mostly just the girl at first undressing (sometimes not very much), and the sound doesnít kick in until sheís grooving down on her hot pocket and causes an avalanche. And sometimes the director talks to the girl, too. Kami was flirting and the director proclaimed his marital status.
Oh, yeah. Forgot. Thereís no hardcore.
What action there is here is very formula driven: Girl takes off panties, drools on her own tits perhaps, hoists up alpine skirt to show pussy and maybe some ass, then grabs a toy (usually) and sucks and jabs. Sometimes youíre treated to 200 photos or more of this routine.
Alp Girls is a funny site. The pics are colossal. The vids are shrimpy. The navigation and photo downloading will induce fatigue. The babes are hot, but this user was pretty disappointed just the same.
