Pros: -Managed by Danni.com. Very elaborate sets. Great photography.
-144 solo sets of Crystal Klein. Always some pussy spreading and fingering. Classy.
-35 girl-girl sets with well-known models. 3-4 great sets with Shay Laren.
-87 other models sets.
-60% 1080x700, 20% 1300x900, 20% 1800x1200. Thumbnails: 103x154 pixels. Orientation: 2/3 vertical, 1/3 horizontal.
-Zip files.
-108 uncategorized videos. 50% girl-girl, 50% solo. 5 minutes. 3-4 are longer Danni.com or Penthouse recorded chats.
-Multiple formats. 95% 400x300, 1600kbps WMV. 30% also have lower resolutions. 80% also as quicktime.
-Simple search box lets you find particular sets / videos or models by name.
-Access to 1modelcamnetwork chats (Jelena Jensen, Nikki Nova, Natasha Yi, Felicia Tang are active)
RECENT UPDATES (Jan-May 2008)
-9 solo galleries (5 are split in two parts so, 14 updates). All solo.
-15 galleries from other models.
-7 video updates. 6 solo videos plus a Penthouse chat co-hosted with Carli Banks split in 5 parts.
Cons: -Misleading tour: no daily updates, no weekly chats, no interaction and no extra video feeds at this time.
-Model is not hosting chats currently. According to forum posts, she used to in the past but stopped at least 6 months ago.
-She used to be very active in the forums (1.5 posts per day) getting feedback from members. Fewer posts in 2008. None in the last couple months.
-Rather low average resolutions in videos and images.
-News, diary not updated since end of 2006 (although it seems updates stopped because of "lack of interest" by site members).
-Technical issues (but responsive customer service):
--member's area link at signup confirmation page pointed to a blank page;
--site was down (blank page) for 2 days;
--broken links: some galleries, chat (some times), extras gone (games, porn feeds);
--cancelling feedback was not clear enough: had to email customer service to confirm;
--candids section was wiped out by a "server issue" 6 months ago, hasn't come back.
Bottom Line: I didn't know about the model until recently and the impossible and uninformative tour required a leap of faith on my side to join (and a strong desire to see more of her good looks).

When I was finally able to enter the members' area, I felt like the party had just stopped. Reading the forums, it seems that Crystal Klein is very outgoing and that her live chats were very worth attending. The site also had the kind of interaction every solo model site should offer. It's a pity all of it ended eventually and the current Crystal Klein updates are so few (although she is actively shooting new ones).

If I had come across it a year ago, I would have seriously considered staying for some time but, the way it is now, staying for more than a month isn't worth it despite the low price.

Photo galleries are still top quality and the recent ones are few but good and at decent resolutions. It seems that, being managed by Danni.com, they have access to their elaborate sets and are currently shooting there the updates. There are also many good outdoor shoots but also the usual ones at "nudie houses".

The technical issues, though, are hard to understand coming from a site managed by Danni.com / Penthouse. In fact, I was told that it had been delisted at PU/TBP until recently because more people also had the same signup issues. In case they still haven't solved them, make sure you use the home page link to enter the members' area and contact their tech support if anything else arises.

Drooler (218) Outstanding review! Same for the Nikki Nova one, etc. You deserve more trust ratings, that's for sure.

Wittyguy (95) Very good review here, keep it up. It seems like a lot of these single model sites are just not keeping up. The actress seems to get into it for a little while, usually just after the launch, and then let it languish.

Thanks for your encouragement. You're right that it's hard to find solo model sites that keep up. IMHO, the "recipe" for a solo model site is quite simple: offer at least one new photoset and one video a week and as much "interaction" with the model as possible (active in the message board, candid pictures, regularly updated diary, 3-4 webcam shows a month, reachable by email, schedule).

I am not saying it's an easy job to do it month after month but, if you offer decent quality content and make it reasonably priced, fans should be coming by the hundreds and let their memberships renew month after month.

It seems that very few well-known models realise the potential of their sites. Most don't even do the content part right and the interaction is just a promise on the website tour. I'm not interested in amateur/unpublished/web-only models but I feel they usually have a better understanding on how things work and their sites probably get a much higher percentage of rebills.

In Crystal Klein's case, it's a pity because, as far as I could see, the site used to be a perfect example on how to things properly for maybe 1-2 years but, for reasons beyond my understanding (the model hasn't retired), has settled down for no interaction and providing fewer and fewer updates every month. I remember reading in the message boards that people who had been there for 1-2 years were leaving because the model no longer was hosting webcam shows or posting in the boards.

I think most of the high profile models who seem to keep up do it with the help of other companies/producers (Club Nella, Club Sandy, Eve Angel etc. get a lot of support help and casting with other models). I could see where doing it one your own would become a major pain but if you want the revenue you have to keep it up -- the fans of individual models expect more than what they get from the mega sites.
