||- Still my favorite of the all-girl lesbian sites
- Newer videos have 1280x720 top option, most at least have 852 high end option and the first 30 or so videos on the site are the only really bad quality clips.
- Picture sets are zipped, but do not have picture set for each video set, also have a lot of photo sets that there is no video for.
- Good DL speed, about 95% of my max
- Total amount of content is very high 748 videos as of 2/2/2009, 1285 picture sets.
- Contains the most "tribbing" on a lesbian site that I have seen.
||- Some of the newer content has a cookie cutter feel to it. Very planned out scenes, which all usually are, but at least make me believe it could be real!
- As mentioned in pros, you will see a video you like and wonder how the pictures will look, but they don't have a picture set for every video and vice versa.
- More and more licensed, non-exclusive content finding its way on here.
||I did lower my opinion a little on the overall score from my first review. Having said that, I still believe that overall it is the best girl/girl site on the internet. The older content has some real gems in those.
I still think content is disappearing. I used to have a Sarah Blake/Charlie Laine movie in front of a fireplace that said sapphic erotica on it, but it is nowhere to be found on the site. Probably one of the greatest g/g scenes I had ever seen.
Most of the newer scenes are bordering on uninteresting. I don't think it is the models' fault since I've seen these models in g/g content on other sites with much more passion and much more believability. The newest scene with Eve Angel is almost boring, and Eve won an award year before for Best Foreign Female Performer from AVN.
The site's navigation is okay. The new search is better than no search. I am currently on the site and searched for "videos" and added "trib" 57 results come up. Then I added "blonde" to the other two search terms and 42 results come up. So far so good. Then I added, "slim" to the 3 search terms and 53 results come up. Do some backwards math there and see that only 42 came up with videos/trib/blonde but 53 come up for videos/trib/blonde/slim.
Now you see what I mean about the search being better than no search, but you can also see how it isn't real consistent.
The picture sets range in quality by age. Most of the older sets are 1200 high end, and do come zipped. I've never really understood the purpose of giving you small, medium, large options on thumb size. I clicked the large thinking it was a larger resolution. The newest picture set, added on 1/31/09 has 2000 high end resolution.
Model selection is very good. There really are some very good videos in there. You just have to spend some time finding them. I especially recommend the older videos, even the ones of the "butch" looking models as those are filled with passion. There is one really cute video of 5 models, Sophie Moone is in it as is Sandra Shine, and Sophie does a little booty tease that turns into an orgy.
What it comes down to for me, the big name Euro models are great here, and the older videos are as well.
I rate it high because you just don't see a lot of quality lesbian content anymore and including SE's large back catalog of over 700 videos, you are sure to find some content to your liking. Add the high quality, just did a check, a video from 2003 had 640 high end with 1000 bitrate, one from 2006 has 960 high end with 2000 bitrate and in 2007 the 1280 high end started showing up. So that is pretty good, 640 is still standard for some sites today and they were doing it in 2003.
A few tweaks to the navigation and a more accurate search engine would help. I would personally like to be able to pick updates by years. It would make it easier to get the older content much easier. As it is, you have to click "Next" over and over until at the end. I still recommend it highly.
