||- My download speed from Videobox was APPALLING. Despite getting 700-800kb/s from other websites, I was lucky to get 10kb/s from Videobox for 99% of my membership. That's no typo; TEN kb/s!! The 1% of the time I could get good download speeds was for an hour or two on Saturday and Sunday mornings (GMT). The sum total of one month's membership is that I managed to download a whopping 9 videos, which is clearly dire.
- No refund if you're having problems downloading files.
||I fully appreciate that most people won't have a problem with the download speeds and it's not really fair to rate this clearly outstanding website very low, so I've given it a score of 90.
That said, personally I'll never be rejoining Videobox as it has been a total waste of money for me.
So take this review as a word of warning; if you're in Europe, specifically the UK like me, you may well have extremely slow downloads speeds and they will not refund your money. As can be seen if you read other comments on this website, other people have also had this slow download speed problem.
