Pros: +Excellent download speeds
+The most ACCURATE performer tagging job I've seen on a DVD site to date!
+The best porn star directory I've seen to date! Includes male directory too!
+Overlap is extremely low with other sites. Yes, there is overlap, but its not all that high.
+Videos offered in high (640x480) and medium (480x360) WMV. You can also stream them using embedded WMP.
+All videos come with 25 screencaps!
+They do add a lot of scenes per day. On a good day I guess it is the equivalent of 5 full movies (1/05 is scheduled to get 26 scenes) (But on a bad day, though, you might see 0 scenes added)
+Because they do updates by scene, there is almost a 0% chance that they get the performer's name wrong, and rarely do you see misplaced videos with general girl names (e.g. you probably won't see video with Eva Angelina where she is named "Eva" and placed under a girl named "Eva" separate from "Eva Angelina". You are more likely to see it named and categorized properly)
Cons: -Updates done by scene, not by full movie. And exactly like Ten.com, you may not see a full movie with all its scenes, forever. HOWEVER (next bullet)
-Although movies list only certain available scenes, the rest of the scenes are hidden from view (because they have not "officially" been added as updates) and therefore you would never know that the scenes exist. With a little link modification, you can download these scenes (see bottom line)
-Site search is the most useless I have seen, ever!
-While their performer directory is excellent, they routinely use the most common alias for a girl instead of a girl's most common name
-HQ version is labeled HDDVD, but only 640x480?? DVD is 480x360?? Bad descriptions.
-Very hard to get a read on "actual" update schedule. No consistency! (see bottom line)
-No movie list available, and even if there was there's no way to determine which movies have all scenes available and which don't (thanks to update scheme)
-Download managers not supported
Bottom Line: I was all ready to rate this site in the 90's until I realized that there is no movie listing, and many of the scenes in movies are HIDDEN from view (!?!). The oddest part of it all is that the scenes exist but are not shown. What is even worse is that you might see a scene listed for a pornstar on their page, but you don't see it on the page for the movie. I don't understand it at all. Thus I docked the rating 10 points. Why hide content?!!! But overall I think this is a great site that is worth a look, especially since there is a rather low overlap with other DVD sites like Videobox.

So anyway, about that link modification thing. As far as I can see it is 100% legitimate, because the movies exist on their server and they are just hidden from view (but the scenes will be listed on the performer's page!!?!). So for example, if the link to scene 1 is given as http://www.site.com/folder/01.wmv and scene 2 is given as http://www.site.com/folder/02.wmv, it doesn't take a mensa member to figure out that scene 3 will be http://www.site.com/folder/03.wmv. Half the time when you do this the download works perfectly fine. Other times the movie genuinely does not exist. So it is a crapshoot.

Right now I'm in the process of going through each movie page one by one to get an accurate movie listing (which is possible since each unique movie link just has an incremental number starting from 1). There is not a SINGLE page, or SINGLE piece of information that lists the movies available. I mean you can go to their store, but I think the store would list more movies than are available to download. So it would be nice to have a full list. So far I've done about 250 movies, and I'm going to take a wild guess and say there is near 2000 movies, but I will reply back and let everyone know how many I get.

The update schedule is provided and they show what has been added and what they intend to add in the future, but its all variable. Some days will have a lot of scenes added, some days will see no additions. Moreover, there is no page that records all additions, so I can't determine their update frequency. Oh well.

Their job in getting the cast list is first rate. Now I must point out that they go by the "official" cast list, which in a lot of cases is pulled not from the rolling credits but from the movie cover, and movie covers are notorious for leaving out a few performers, especially those which are compilations of scenes. So every here and there you encounter a movie lacking a couple names in the cast.

The search is the worst. The results are something that resembles a Google knockoff search engine; it is terrible. It is worthless and I never use it. Thus I only stick to their EXCELLENT pornstar directory. Every pornstar, make and female, has a page with a head shot, available scenes (with download links) and body measurments/features like IAFD offers.

They do offer some HQ image galleries, but they are nothing to get excited over.

juanchopancho (12) Just curious. Do they have any videos for Kayden Kross and/or Tori Black?

Also do they have videos from all the main porn studios or just a select few?

TrashMan (Disabled) REPLY TO #1 - juanchopancho :

They have 2 videos of Kayden from Double Crossed.

They have 2 videos of Tori Black, one from Twisted Vision 7 and Secretary's Day 2.

Like I said in my review, though, there might be some hidden videos out there that I don't know about as they have not been added as "official updates". These are 2 girls I'm not fond of, so I'm not going to go out of the way to compare whats on IAFD to what is available on Pornstar.com, I'm just giving you the scenes they have listed on each girl's individual page.


They add a lot of studios. They actually have a top-10 list of their 10 most frequent studios (in order, 1 to 10):
Red Light District
Zero Tolerance
3rd Degree
Devil's Films
PlatinumX
Elegant Angel
Evasive Angels
American Hardcore
Defiance Films
Jill Kelly Production
