||Kate is fine.
There is lots of content.
Picture quality is good, and the "free sample" images you might have seen don't really do the rest of the content justice -- you've seen all of the "hands hiding the assets" shots, but the other shots are really quite good.
I'm not really "into video" that much, so bear in mind I'm primarily talking about still pictures in this review.
||Gosh, if only you could GET that content downloaded to your computer.
I'm sorry, but while the content is fine, the web site really needs to be docked significant points for making it more than extremely tedious and difficult to download that content. The lack of zip files is just totally unexcusable in this market -- I think this will be the last site I'll join that doesn't offer them. I wound up having to make extensive use of an automated downloader in order to download the content with any efficiency.
The automated downloader did, though, help me find the site's undocumented download limit -- please add this to the site information please -- 4 gigabytes in 24 hours. Quite a lot, actually, but TELL your customers about it!
Another problem is the lack of unique file names -- I spent quite a lot of time renaming files so that I could make use of them after downloading them.
These are "customer unfriendly" issues that we shouldn't have to hassle with.
||Bottom line? Kate is good, but the site is extremely customer-unfriendly. I'm not happy paying a bunch of money when I've got to work my butt off just trying to download the content and make it useful for my needs.
It's simply time to add issues like these to site rankings. It's time to ding these sites when they have unpublished download limits.
What I would recommend to others would mainly be "give your money to the sites that make it easy for you to download their content." And you can sure find far better ones than this one. Let's reward the webmasters who make it easy for us, until sites like this one do something to improve these issues.
This may be "one-sided," and weighted heavily towards one issue, but I see this as something that's not showing up in thebestporn.com's ratings at all, and it goes far, far beyond "site navigation." I hope the good folks here will consider paying a lot more attention to these issues.
Finally, I didn't find the "additional Spunky sites" as having enough content, nor high enough quality, to make them worth enough "added value" to pay for this site. I certainly will be cancelling my membership long before my first month ends.
