Pros: +No overlap with other DVD sites (because Vivid rarely leases their content to sites like VideoBox)
+Video streams offered as Quicktime, Windows Media, or sometimes Real Media.
+Streams offered in high and low qualities.
+You get content from girls that you cant get on other sites. Its like the whole Michael Jordan fiasco with NBA computer games. He doesn't allow his name to appear in NBA Live or whatever; similarly, girls like Jenna Jameson don't allow their content to be shown on sites like VideoBox or VideosZ or the sort (Thanks Vivid!). Mind you the content from these girls are rather limited, but hey, 1 video is greater than 0 videos, right?
+Cheap? $9.97/mo is cheap by anyone's standards, but when you see what you get you will wonder how they can charge so much.
Cons: -68 girls to be exact...a joke.
-No updates
-Site search is worthless
-The "high" quality video is the same 320x240 resolution as "low" quality.
-High and low qualities both look junky, terrible video rips.
-Cast list for some movies includes non-vivid girls, but of course since they are not vivid girls they don't have their own page with archived content. What a joke.
-There are no download links for the videos. Its all streaming. Sure, with the proper download manager (FlashGet) you can download the streams, but why should we be forced to go through all the effort?
-The membership extras are junk - 1) a site to download xxx screensavers and wallpapers, 2) a site to play dumb adult games, 3) Collider.com, a place to find interviews with your favorite vivid girls. Junk, junk and junk.
-I don't even know if there are photos. Every photo link I click I just get a page with a bunch of placeholders where the thumbnails should be. Then when I click them I get a page with no image at all.
Bottom Line: This site is complete junk. It is a joke, and $10/mo is way too much for this. There are no updates, the quality of the videos suck, I can't find one link that shows working pictures (even if it did work I wouldn't give this site a higher rating since I don't pay for sites based on their picture offerings), there are no video downloads, etc. etc. ETC.!

I don't know how this site is still in operation. They might as well just shut it down. It hasn't been updated in years. And 68 girls? 68??? That's it? Come on now, even Wicked Pictures (a similar site that rarely leases content to sites like VideoBox) at least creates pages for non Wicked girls...and at least they provide some semblance of an update schedule.

Avoid this site, please. No one bought Michael Jordan's computer games, rather choosing to buy the more mainstream games without his character. Similarly, people should avoid Vivid's site with their exclusive girls instead choosing more mainstream sites with a plethora of non-Vivid girls.

mbaya (356) I have always thought of Vivid as too soft and not at all my taste. So I probably would never have subscribed to the site anyway. However, considering the size of their archives it seems obvious they don't care about the site. It beats me how they have such a big name in the industry.

Monahan (42) Good, well written review. And I agree totally.

I signed up and discovered that it was all streaming and low quality. I tried to cancel and get a refund but was denied, so I just canceled and let the membership run out. I think I might have gone in once after the first day just to make sure I didn't misunderstand what I experienced the first time. I didn't.

The $10 would have served me a whole lot better if I spent it on a couple of Big Macs. I know I would have enjoyed the cardboard burgers a lot more than that poor excuse of a porn site.

PinkPanther (46) REPLY TO #1 - mbaya :

They've got such a big name in the industry because of their stars - they've shelled out to have the hottest contract girls - and wasted the opportunity by churning out crap so they could have a constant stream of stuff out there for business people to rent in hotel rooms - at least that's my theory. It's amazing to think what people with talent could have done with their contract girls. Such a waste.

80slover (0) I have to agree with this review. For the money, Videobox is really the way to go. You may not see much Vivid content at that price (though they just started releasing Vivid COntent as a "Premium" channel) the updates are pathetic and searching is impossible (almost all links in scene descriptions return 0 results).
