* If I didn't mention about 1 By Day having archives of those other sites, it's because I didn't KNOW. It's not advertised is it, and we both know why.
* The archive stuff from Lesbomat/Lesbo Machine had already been paid for by me when I joined those sites. I will not raise my score just because they appear again on 1 By Day. Same for any other recycled archive material, as long as the original sites still exist and still take subscriptions.
* I cited the Black Angelica movie as an EXAMPLE, I didn't say I based my entire review on it. I could give many more examples - but seeing your attitude - what's the point?
* Until now all you have ever done is come back with sarcasm, insinuation, arrogance, childishness, and wilful misreading and selectivity of my comments. You have not acknowledged that any of my points might possibly be valid, especially the wobbly jerky camera work. And no, I'm not talking about the older ones. And I'm talking multiple dozens. For me, that's a major issue. Thanks for saying you'll look into it now. I wish you'd said that at the start. It doesn't concern me now though, as I've already cancelled my membership.
* Your arrogance that no one could possibly prefer the other sites I mentioned over 1 By Day is a major part of your site's problem (as I see it).
* I was actually quite lenient on the score. After the horrible treatment I've had from you, I nearly lowered it a lot more, based on so-called 'customer service'. I have still kept it in the 70s.
* Stop telling me about the 'average' or 'majority' opinion. My opinion is my own. I have no bias other than what I consider to be good. You cannot say the same.
* I'm bored of this now, and have had enough. Write what you want.
Bela, I speak for myself, my opinions, no one else's. I do not think anyone 'dumb' for having a different opinion to mine. In fact, I respect everyone who has respectfully disagreed with me, and I'm happy to say I've been shown a lot of respect generally also, which I appreciate.
By the way - to offer something positive about DDF - I've just found a couple of their really hot movies on my hard drive. They're probably a little bit old (I don't mean ancient) because they're lower res and split into parts.
But there's Jasmin with Liz Honey, which despite having a music soundtrack (nooo!) it's still very very good (IMO), and also Nataly with Prada. Both have very very good camera work - the camera is rock steady, and when it moves it 'glides' rather than jerks, and it finds great angles and holds them. I think I may have downloaded them from Lesbomat, but I think they should be on the 1 By Day archive too.
I recommend anyone to check these out.
Bela - I hope you will seek these out just to compare with, say, the latest Black Angelica-Nancy Bell movie. I just offer these examples to make my case. The camera work. If you disagree, that's cool. Just giving my opinion.
I half-expect another sarcastic reply (!) but I hope we can both be civil! Thanks. Davit.
And as for me spelling Lesbomat with a 'z' (now corrected) - I spelt it the same as I spelt 'Lezbo Honeys'. So I didn't memorise the different spellings. You find that suspicious? All you had to do was politely point out the error, and I would have happily changed it (which I have now done anyway).
The slight lowering of my score is reflected in my list of negatives, which I feel is valid.
Thanks for the apology, which judging from your last remark doesn't account for very much.
I think the reason why you 'can't conceivably see why I prefer Lesbo Honeys/Club Sandy/Dirty101 to '1 by-day' is the whole problem.
I explained EXACTLY why those sites movies are superior (despite the lower res). I've just sat through watching about half a dozen 1 by-day videos and they all have the same principle problem - damn awful camera work.
It seems to constantly wobble (makes me feel sea sick), is way too over-active the way it jumps around and zooms in and out all the time, and the editing looks unnatural - makes me think it was all shot on just the one camera, the way the cuts look. And the camera casts it's own shadow on the women when it's close up much of the time. AND it rarely gets a great angle with two women - it always seems to be filming from an angle that misses the really hot contact. AND the sound on the videos that are not HD is awful too.
I'm sure you've noticed I'm not holding back on the criticism. Well, if you're the support guy then you should handle it professionally or you can choose to disregard it. But the reason I joined this review site was so that I could get my own opinions across (just like every other reviewer does).
Just compare the 'Sandy's Fantasies' movies with the Club Sandy ones. They're probably similar resolution, but the Club Sandy ones are in a whole other league in terms of the way the movies are shot and cut, and the action and images that are captured.
I can't conceivably understand how you can't see that - oh wait, I can. You're biased! Sorry Bela, but by definition, you are.
And I see you haven't lost your sarcastic touch with the 'surely coincidence' remark. So much for the earlier apology. I find your attitude as a 'customer support' guy pathetic.
Here's a classic case in point. 1 By day's movie of Dorothy Black and Eve Angel. The camera can't keep still even for a few seconds. And when it zooms in on an interesting area (e.g. one girl licking another's pussy or ass, or fingering pussy) it constantly wobbles left and right and up and down, and zooms out and in and out again and away then back, etc too often for me.
I'm not saying this is 'wrong', it's a matter of style, and obviously most people like it. But my review has to based on what I think is good or bad. And I don't personally like this style. I like the camera to find a really hot shot, and hold it still for a while so I can soak up the scene, and I find other websites do this adequately for me (and I think it's fair for me to mention them as examples).
Additionally, it's not the sharpest picture for HD. I have Sapphic Erotica movies at 960x540 that look sharper than this with more natural looking colour. I'm not too bothered about HD, but if something is HD and has a large file size, I expect it to look great.
Agree or not, that's my opinion. And you can reply with whatever insults or accusations you like, Bela, if you can't take my criticisms. Regards.
Granted I find the 75 rating surprising, considering my experience with 1 By Day's sister site Hands On Hardcore - and I also think that while 21 Sextury Productions is certainly a descent network, Davit's reviews are higher than I would rank them considering the lack of HD, search engines and network wide searching.
However - I just looked through Davit's recent activity and unless I'm missing something, all of the links (excluding one direct link to a preview page) were automatically inserted by the PornUsers.com server. The server will turn anything with a dot com extension into a link, but it will also link directly to the review page of any site name they have a review page for (for example, something as generic as Big Tits Round Asses it will pick up). So, again unless I'm missing a link, I think the Nats affiliates codes are automatically be added by this site. I'm actually careful to go through PornUsers.com now to access any site directly before subscribing so their affiliate code goes through and they get whatever money they get for that.
Now I'm not saying that recommending a different network in the review of a site is in good taste - that sort of "recommendation" should be saved for comments, not main reviews. Ever. And most probably know at this point that I'm indeed a fan of DDF Productions and certainly find the stark difference between the ratings intriguing though not necessarily alarming yet.
Anyway, if I missed something blatant, sorry - I might be oblivious, it has happened before, lol. I just think we might want to be careful before we bring the guillotine down on someone just because their reviews don't match up with our own taste. Many of my favorite movies were panned by critics before release (for example, a lot of critics originally missed that Desperado was an action comedy). Do we need to watch for people promoting the company's they work for - indeed! I hope that can be kept to a minimum, but I guess I give people the benefit of the doubt and hope that PornUsers.com's administrators will be watchful and pronounce judgment when it is necessary.
I must say I was struck by the statement to the effect that the lack of HD videos at one of the 21st Sextury sites is actually an advantage in that they take up less space. It is true that they use less space, but the quality is not as good as I'd like.
Same goes for the photos. I love the vivid color at the 21st Sextury sites, but anymore they're too small. I really wish they'd at least include a zip download option for pics at 2000px, which is what the DDF sites have.
Its totally Ok, good to see the offer available for longer for anyone interested in it. I ended up joining handsonhardcore and 1by-day, which I'll review both when seen more of. Upto now, thesres some cuties for sure. This is just me and I know loads of people like different things, I do prefer your fresher ladies not so made up in makeup, I do tend to opt for natural girls, really good to see some of the great lesbian scenes though on 1by-day, some really cute girls in different scenerios. Not a great fan for toys but I know models love htme to get themselves off with. Jenny Noel is standing out and she's so cute, also if you could get Priscilla and Belicia together would make my dreams come true, maybe with a guy or just them two in a lesbian scene.
Like the classyness of the site though and European women on the site, they float my boat for sure, love also some older younger lesbian scenes in the future, nothing more sexier than that in my eyes, Jenny Noel with an older womean would be awesome. Anyway Bela, look foward to seeing more of the sites I chose and seeing some hot scenes. You can tell its a well established network. house of taboo will probably be on my list for the future. Love to see that Priscilla scene on there you have. She is just a dream, loved her work for ages.
"The Tome of Erotic Photography and Lighting: An In-Depth Guide by Denys Defrancesco" - now that is a book I would pre-order on Amazon.com for sure! It would be especially cool if it was made in the big, coffee-table style hardcover, so it would not only be an important technical reference, it could also be an interesting conversation piece that people could pick up and leaf through. Each instructive photograph printed on glossy heavy-weight paper - built to last a life-time.
I would definitely prefer to be behind the camera instead of in front of it - but if there was one week school on porn - hmmm. Well Skip Barber Racing School charges 3 Grand for a two day, high-performance driving school, not including transportation or accommodation - so for 6 days of porn - 6 Grand would be a pretty damn reasonable - I would have to save for a while to build up that much cash, but that would be an interesting experience. Learning the technical side of pornographic photography: composing shots, setting lighting, directing models, editing photos, choosing locations, and so on. That would be worth the money!
Maybe one of these days I'll organize a Photography Course with famous guest photographers teaching various classes for a week - like those always advertised in PopPhoto - except this one will all be famous pornographers! That would be awesome! I'll have to keep that idea on the back burner...
ooooh - free stuff! I like :-) Well that is certainly good incentive to rejoin - as if the content weren't enough :-P
Your point about the brides & bridesmaids really puts a different light on all those camera ads featuring them. I always assumed they were trying to say that with this or that camera your client's glamorous wedding would look even better - maybe instead they were saying your glamorous porn shoot would look even better! lol
The split you describe, and the lowered membership fees, sound a lot like what I'd like to see. Those of us who have no interest at all in fucking machines, toy play or lez would like soft pink solo all on one site.
The fucking machines just don't do a thing for me, btw. (Well, if the History Channel ever featured them on "Modern Marvels," that would be interesting. LOL.)
And as for b/g, I guess you mean that would be on neither -byDay or -byNight, but on a diffierent site Again, that sounds fine!
Thanks for the reply. I didn't mind the higher price on 1byday, the new format is worth it with the double daily updates and HD quality. I think my 1byday membership just ran out a few days ago, the day of the Klaudia update I believe.
I was just curious about the Euros since I didn't realize our dollar had dropped that much in value. I thought it would be maybe $5 more than the Euro price, but it ended up nearly $12 more. But I understand that you all have to make money to keep producing the HD content and bringing in the top models. I will check that Christmas special out. Thanks for the information.
Complaining to Yahell is like slamming one's head into a brick wall. They simply don't care. I know they have been having serious email problems lately. Gmail is far more dependable, and offers unlimited space.
