If I could give an award for biggest improvement in a site this site would win. The last time I reviewed it I found that while the porn was great the site needed some serious work. I was pleased to see that the site has received a lot of work and is substantially improved from when I last reviewed it in 2011. They kept what I viewed as positive and either threw out or fixed the things I saw as negative.
There is a note on the main page dated from December 30, 2014 that says the ‘new’ site is undergoing beta testing. While it’s now almost three months later and most of the site seems to work fine there are still some issues that occur sporadically that indicate that it is still being tweaked. When I first joined there were huge numbers of dead links (that was temporary) and today a lot of the DVD box covers are missing. I don’t think these temporary quirks are enough to justify skipping the site if you like the porn they offer.
The two main studio ‘sites’ here are 3rd Degree (Third Movies) and Zero Tolerance (ZTOD). Both of these are mainstream hardcore porn studios that are known for featuring top A-list models and great production values. The porn aims for the middle of the market being harder than Elegant Angel but softer than Evil Angel.
The site bills itself as providing access to four separate sites but that’s a bit misleading. As with many studio sites there is a division into different ‘sites’ but the same material is shared across two of them. The one site where there are separate titles is Black Ice where there are 242 DVDs uploaded. Black Ice is an all-black site as opposed to an interracial site which is great since black/black porn is relatively rare. The bad news about Black Ice is that the site hasn’t added a new scene since 2011.
The fourth site that is listed as included when you join is a lesbian site called “How to Kiss a Girl.” I tried repeatedly to enter the site with the login information that worked on the other sites and had no success. (This may be a sporadic issue related to the site redesign.)
Because there are so many DVDs shared between the two main sites it is hard to say how many are available here, but it is in excess of 1500 DVDs, not including what’s on Black Ice.
As this is primarily a video site there are lots of options available to view the videos. The newer videos have four streaming and five download options. Streaming is 1080p, 720p, 360p and “iPod.” Downloads are 1080p, 720p, 360p, iPod and WMV. The 1080p are 1920x1080, 10000+kb/s, the 720p are 1280x720, 4800kb/s and the 360p are 640x360 at 1300kb/s. I can’t give specs on the WMV files because they were much larger than the MP4 files, with some coming in at more than 4GB compared to 2GB for the MP4s.
Obviously older DVDs have fewer options and the best isn't great by today’s standards. Since the available DVDs go back more than a decade I won’t complain about that though.
This isn't really a photo site but screencaps are available.
The last time I was a member I had a lot of complaints about the site that could be summarized as a too-basic site design and a lot of broken links. I’m pleased to report that both of those problems seem to be solved now. The site redesign looks good and is effectively laid out. The search functions now work, there are tags and niches and you can sort the scenes in any of several ways. There are still a few broken links but nothing like the amount there used to be.
The site updates with a new scene per day. To pad their numbers a bit they use a different thumbnail and description when they upload it to each of the main sites. Black Ice doesn’t update and since I can’t access the lesbian site I can’t comment on that.
Download managers are permitted and I had no issue with links timing out. While download speeds started off faster than average they quickly trailed off to lower than average speeds.
I recommended the site the last time I reviewed it because the great porn outweighed the site’s flaws. This review doesn’t need to rely on any such compromises. The porn is still great and now the site design supports the porn rather than lets it down. At full price it would be a decent value but with the TBP discount it’s a great value. I recommend joining even more than last time.

-So much content that it makes your head spin.
-Variety of niches that can appeal to many different fans. They have BDSM to Transsexuals to Lesbians to MILFs to Bisexual to BBWs, etc.
-The newer stuff has HD quality downloads.
-Very cheap for the amount of material they allow to view and download.
-Older content video qualities are poorer.
-Beware of the links to other sites. If you press it, you will automatically be charged for that site.
-Most of the materials they have can be found in other sites that show DVD content.
-Could use a better system to sort through the material i.e. like if you want to get to page 245 out of 500, then they should have it so that you could get to that page faster then having to constantly press the latest number, and I believe their current system skips at 8 pages at a time.
If you are new to porn, this is definitely the site to go to and view. They have so many of the DVDs that are out there, so you can view it for the cost of an older DVD. Beware of the links, and enjoy the content.
there seems to be a daily download limit.
You can only download 200 Scenes (a movie has 10-20 Scenes) per day. If you reached the Limit you can only Stream the movies until the next day.
Personally i think this is not fair because i found no such information before joining the site. Also the Quality of the Streams are lower than the downloads. And Streaming Movies can be interrupted by a bad or slow internet connection and so you have freezing frames and other ugly stuff.
Hope somebody of the staff reads this and corrects the info on this site!
I liked this site, it competes well with Videobox and has thousands of scenes. Be careful where your cursor is. One wrong click on an image or a logo next to the scene and you will be billed $40 within minutes. I was going to go for a 1 year membership before this happened. Not now.

VideosZ is a decent "mega DVD site". It is quite similar to VideoBox and much of my review of that site applies here, however there are some differences and overall I preferred VideosZ.
The first thing about VideosZ which I liked was how transparent it is about its content. As a non-member you get to use essentially the same UI that members do to search for content on the site. You can also see what the updates are for the day and what they will be on each day for the next week. In comparison, VideoBox hides all of this and makes its content and UI a mystery to potential members.
The site is fairly well organized and its pretty easy to find what you are looking for by studio, model, or tag. I do think they could use more tags to better help people find videos of particular types but at least its usable, accurate, and looks nice.
Downloading is similar to VideoBox in that it is awesome. Fast speeds, a 24hr login, and no expiring links.
VideosZ and VideoBox have a lot of overlapping content but there's enough differences on each site that you'd likely have a hard time choosing one library over another. Off the top of my head I believe Max Hardcore, White Ghetto, Smash Pictures, & Harmony Films were on VideosZ but not VideoBox. But they each have a bunch of videos the other does not.
VideosZ is missing a couple features VideoBox has such as being able to create custom clips or being able to scrub a video thumbnail to view it and choose a playing position. In contrast VideosZ navigation is overall nicer looking and the movie/model info much more accurate.
The most important things for me in a site are content, video quality, and value in that order. And while VideosZ (and VideoBox) do have good content, and arguably very good value, I feel that the video quality of both sites is significantly below where it should be for a pay site.
VideosZ videos come in 3 formats: avi 480p or less ~2200kbps, mp4 540p ~2800kbps, and HD mp4 720p ~5500kbps. Slightly under 10% of the DVDs are available in HD.
Unfortunately, those video specs are not really telling. For example it's possible to get a 720p video that looks pretty bad or one that looks pretty good and both have the exact same encoding specs. I assume the source videos vary wildly in quality.
I could be wrong, but it seemed like VideosZ had more "HD" content than VideoBox and their 720p videos are a slightly higher bit rate than VideoBox which was a bit below 4000kps. However every VideosZ video has a "www.VideosZ.com" water mark on it. I don't really mind this when the watermark is from the original studio, but I disliked seeing the VideosZ watermark on the video, sometimes leading to 2 watermarks, theirs and the original studio's.
It's also worth noting that VideosZ offers those who have been members for 3+ months access to additional videos from Vivid, Club Jenna, and their Hentai section. I have not tried any of that out though.
VideosZ is currently 17.95 thru PU/TBP compared to 12.00 for VideoBox. If you are not concerned with video quality, then both sites are very good. If video quality is important to you then their value diminishes a lot unless you are looking for an old video you don't expect good quality from.

- Huge library of older dvds from both wellknown and lesser known studios.
- Very good indexing of acresses & their aliases. Have found many scenes with my favorite actresses previously unknown to me.
- Stable site and downloads. Using a download manager works just fine.
- Video quality of standard definition scenes/files is surprisingly good given the compression. Even older avi-files looks ok when downloaded, upscaled and zoomed to widescreen (using a better quality media streamer on a full hd-tv).
- Discounted price through TBP gives good value.
- Legal terms: seems like you are billed for 1 month at a time while quitting membership is more or less immediate. This is biased against the customer who might not get the full 30 days he/she paid for.
- Not easy find what you are looking for. The content categories are not very detailed and search options are limited. No information on who directed a movie/scene. Most "free" tube sites provides better indexing of their material.
- Personally I would prefer being greeted by the choosen username instead of my real name on the site.
This is the first pay site I ever signed up for, so I have not much to compare with.
The site offers a huge archive of older scenes and I have had no technical problems with it. Basically I would rate it above "Average" and below "Excellent". The biased legal terms and limited scene detail information limits the use and therefore I reward this site with a score of 80. Its a good site really, but far from being even close to "Excellent".
In the month I have belonged to Videosz.com it has become increasingly poorly responsive. Long response latencies after clicking links, logging me out of my account and sometimes taking so long to respond that it times out. This happens regardless of browser. I also confirmed it using the free website: www.websitenotworking.com. It is so frustrating that despite the improvements Videosz has recently made, I regret joining it and tying up my money.
The site appears to have a nice feature where you can set the default watch quality for all the videos you stream. It also purports to let you change the default search to advanced.
However, these settings revert to the default low quality and basic search as soon as you leave the account page. As far as I can see, if you want to stream videos at higher quality, you need to change the quality setting for each video individually. And I have never been able to get the advanced search to actually show up on my splash page.
EDIT: Fixed by support within 13 hours of me posting. Now that's customer service!
Update! Videoz has been very helpful making things right. It turns out my email provider had been blocked so they weren't getting any of my emails. When they saw my post here they immediately got in touch and got things working again. They even extended my subscription by the time I missed. More than fair. Thanks again Videoz!
I don't know if it was ever mentioned on reviews here but the access to bonus sites one gets after three months membership turned out to be streaming only. Not that I'm complaining about this great site at a good price but just thought it worth mentioning. They buy stuff from other studios so one might think Hustler etc. is also bought in similar way.
It indeed appears that there is something wrong with the compression of the 720p videos on this site. As I mentioned previously, they seem to have very few keyframes or whatever they are called meaning that it takes quite long for the image to clear once you have skipped forward in video player.
There are also quite large number of compression artifacts flickering in and out of image on many videos. I've tried viewing them on separate computers with different video players after having separately downloaded the files so it's not files getting locally corrupted.
So I just joined this place today and it turns out that I cannot get it working with Orbit Downloader or FlashGet, when I do the usual way of downloading a file it just gives me the name "15.mp4" for every file I tried to download, then the download never starts.
The ONLY way to get this working that I have tested is with Orbit you have to open Get++ start a download, cancel it, then start the download from Get++ and it will start like normal. Is there something I am doing wrong for this site? Is there a particular download manager I should use?
I have noticed strange thing in the videos downloaded from VideosZ. Whenever I skip around them in VLC player, it takes significantly longer time for the image to become clear after the skip compared to videos from other sources. I guess this could be due to there being less so called key frames that based on my understanding contain the whole frame, not just the changes from the previous one.
Anyone noticed same or could it be something wrong with my video codecs? Has no effect when continuosly viewing a video but if you are looking for something, it takes a lot of time.
Current Member for over 2 months (at the time of review).
Huge selection of videos with 74,000 scenes, 54 categories, 9 sites.
Excellent high quality video.
Supports Roku streaming.
Never a problem.
Free access to Vivid, Hustler, and Club Jenna videos when member for 3 months.
Members can keep their own playlists.
Has HD and DVD movies.
No download limits.
A little pricier than some competitors, but there is a discount through Pornusers.
Some of the best content I can't access through Roku and must be downloaded or streamed over the PC. Content such as from their bonus sites like Hustler.
No other cons that I can think of.
VideosZ is one of the best sites I've subscribed to. Lots of content, thousands of scenes and niches.
Excellent quality video.
Has both HD and DVD movies.
You get your monies worth with this site.
You get what you pay for.....no more, no less. And that goes for this monster-site of DVDs, too.
And it's cheap, but thank you I only payed 18 bucks.
After a week here, I'm bored - bored with a massive amount of DVDs in low viewing quality and too few HD - where the so called HD is seldom near real HD in the same category of "viewing quality" - so it's like going out to a store/supermarket on sale - and you regret your buy when getting home.
You can browse for hours here and find "a hell of a lot" but the finds are diseppointing, generally. Sorry to the fans here of the site - I've been here some years ago and forgot how lousy it (the vids quality) is.
Canceled rebill and am going back to some real quality sites - will probably not bother with a review.
As a reward for our most loyal members, we're now unlocking free access to Vivid, Hustler, and Club Jenna videos for each of our customers who have been continuous VideosZ members for three months or more. We're always working to improve VideosZ and making sure that we remain the best porn collection online, and this is our way of saying thank you to those who help us make it all possible. You can start enjoying these amazing bonus collections once you reach 3-month Member Status
It seems that we are going through a whole week without a single HD release. Probably they have no steady release schedule on them but release whatever they happen to have. Anyway they have many of them scheduled.
I gave some praise to the download speed of this site but it quite often now seems to get stuck on low gear with total speed of four concurrent downloads hanging around 2 megabytes per second and timeout occassionally stopping altogether and timing out. Luckily these downloads are pauseable so all you have to do is force restart on a download and you don't lose any progress.

-Ridiculous amounts of content. Well over 12000 films totaling over 70000 scenes
-They have brought in good number of 720p HD films. They have close to 700 HD films at the moment
-Very good update rate, lately 5 films per day with one HD release
-Many great studios featured, some like Harmony Films look like they might have actually more material here than on the official sites
-Very good TPB price with no regional billing and using reputable cc billers
-Fast download with DL manager up to over 12MB/s but usually somewhere little below 10. Sometimes the files can get stuck on slower speed
-Very nice site design. Modern and clean looking and has configureable options to fit your personal tastes
-The scene preview is actually better when you are not logged in. Multiple screenies tell a lot more than the frozen viewer image. You can see more when previewing the whole title. At least it doesn't autoplay the scene (there's an option for that too)
-In site ads
-Some of the older films on the site are not up to DVD quality
-Some suspiciously old films released as "HD" updates caught my eye in previews. Well, they are upscaled and end up just taking more space on your hard drive. Luckily there are not many
-Compilation releases have same scenes as some films released before as original titles
-Could use maybe even more search tags with the huge amount of scenes
-Some releases are quite B-class
-Pre checked cross sale on the cc billers web page
VideosZ is a very typical site in the genre that is often called DVD site. While the world today has little to do with DVD's, the basic meaning is that you are offered a huge selection of complete film title releases from various studios on one site. Frankly I'm not wholly sure if all of this new stuff even gets a proper DVD or Bluray release on physical media these days but the new content is only a part of the whole deal as these sites feature large archives of older and even vintage releases.
While there's over 200 studios on this site with releases, not all of them have much content or are very high quality. The top ones in the sheer numbers of material are Legend, Red Light District and Platinum X Pictures. Other famous ones or the ones I personally like include Elegant Angel, Private, Harmony Films and Evil Playgrounds. When you go to the actual websites of some of these studios that offer memberships, you might actually notice that on this site you get more material from them for a better price and in better quality. Plus everything else of course. The shortage of material certainly isn't going to be your issue with this site with over 12000 film titles. The shortage of storage space and download bandwidth on the other hand could be ;)
The site updates frequently and here it means "a lot". On average you get five updates per day, one of which is HD release in 720p. The higher resolutions are available in mp4 and there are also smaller avi-files. It's a bit hard to tell if some material available in HD gets released in DVD resolution but one thing is clear: At times they seem to have run out of HD release and fake one. It was indeed suspicious noticing "Zazel: The Scent of Love" as a 720p HD release when I remember this film from when was young (it was shot in 1995 according to Wikipedia and apparently also released as remastered Bluray HD release but apparently the version available on this site is not the true HD one). The quality of the releases is varying without doubt, some are top class and in HD while others are quite mediocre fillers. The quality of more recent releases is good in HD and DVD quality in non HD films. The old stuff doesn't always come close to DVD quality and theses sites aren't too keen remastering old stuff apparently. Obviously it does little to attract new subscribers compared to adding new material.
Of the studios avaiable here, I'm particularly happy with many HD (38 out of 114) and DVD releases from Harmony Films. Very high quality fetishy European stuff from great directors like Tanya Hyde, Strangelove and Gazzman. This site is probably better source of their films than their own site and certainly cheaper! I'm also happy to see a very comprehensive selection of Private DVD's with almost 300 titles on this site. Sadly they are among the older stuff so the quality is not the best around. Paradise Film is another one worth mentioning, not only for good things. A large number of HD releases are from this company that is unknown to me but strangely the scenes are all not. I'm sure I've seen a number of them on sites like DDF and 21Sextury. They also seem like "direct to digital distribution" releases with many same scenes across different titles resultin in lots of duplicates. Their quality is top however.
The site itself is good looking with clean design that works well. Search function works ok and it completes the name of actress or film so it's easier to find what you are looking for. There are also many categories for easier browsing although sometimes you wish for even more as some like "fetish" are quite generic. Downloads are fast, I could manage up to 12MB/s using download manager.
One of the sites to stay on, not just subscribe for a month or two. Again for the cons I had to think quite hard and when I look at what I came up, I feel I'm complaining about nothing really. Remember to buy an extra hard drive first and maybe upgrade your broadband!
Not for sure if others receive promos from ZTOD and their sister studios 3rd Movies or Black Ice Pass, but the latest one I received made me think Black Ice was going to start updating again. I could be reaching a little when I say I'm wondering if they're releasing Black Ice style DVDs on ZTOD since Black Ice Pass itself is dead? I know in my last review of ZTOD, I mentioned how the search engine was seemingly becoming for all 3 of their studios, instead of having to go to each studio's site to find specific models for each site. Either way, the ZTOD join is just as good as the last time I reviewed it. With the various problems on Videobox and the continued high production quality on ZTOD's DVDs, I would bump ZTOD ahead by just a little bit, maybe 1-2 points. Once my membership is up and I have a chance to see if they are updating Black Ice ethnic girl style DVDs on ZTOD, I will either write a new review for ZTOD or will post a comment.
