Pros: BB=bang bros

+Like NA/RK/Braz, all network sites updates are browsable in one main BB page.
+Site search, works well
+No extra login to network sites (all hosted on BB domain)
+First site I have seen which puts the bio info and lists whether a girl's tits are fake. Fake tits are sometimes hard to tell (I thought Mason Storm had real tits for the longest time) and I really wish more sites would list this information, especially IAFD
+5 star rating system for each girl and scene, big-name girls have 10000 or more votes, and good scenes have 2000. It is nice to see a lot of votes - most other sites with voting systems dont generate votes
+Movies available in low and high WMV and MPG, split or full
+Model directory w/ thumbs
+Every scene has associated trailer , HQ pictures, and screencaps.
+Every update is date tagged on every page it is seen (model page, updates page, home page, etc.)
+Every year since the start, the number of updates per day has gone up (see bottom line). Now at ~2.33.
Cons: -Like Brazzers, too much focus on certain girls. E.g Gianna Michaels has 23 updates.
-Updates, for the most part, lack the actress name in the title. If you know the girl in the thumbnail, great, otherwise you have to click the link to see who the tagged actress(es) is.
-Too many asshats in voting. New updates have 1-2 stars right off the bat. Takes a while for the ratings to goto norm.
-Neither HQ pics or screencaps are available with ZIP downloads.
-Watermarked images and videos
-When you click an update a link to the actress page is at the bottom, not somewhere I'd expect it. Similar problem with the updates page - I expect to see a link to the actress on the updates page under each update (not the case with BB)
-BB comics? Um...this is something a junky site with no content would offer.
-Model directory, when sorted alphabetically, are not organized. From the "A" page, in order (first two letters of names): Al,Al,An,Al,An,As,Am,Al,Av,etc.
-Non standard names for some girls
Bottom Line: Overall a decent site, but a lot of improvements need to be made to put it on the same level as Brazzers or NaughtyAmerica. I feel like I am on NA than Brazzers (thus I'd be leaning to give BangBros a better rating), the problem is that there are some glaring problems with the site, a lot of which I could not fit in the cons, and while we all know BB has been around 2001 (all updates 2001-now are available) other networks have followed their model and just passed them by.

Things I couldn't fit in the Pros/Cons because of char limit:
Like Brazzers, there is the kind of crap you don't want to see on a MEMBERS section of a paid site. While Brazzers makes the crap a bit more apparent, BangBros is more subtle, but its there. In the top bar there is a button titled "Meet girls near you, GET LAID". Click it and you get links to Fling (dot com). I dont need to see this shit on members areas of porn sites.

More on the non-standard naming with girls. I routinely find that some girls are just not given their proper name, and even worse is that they run with it, making multiple updates with the name. For example, Jackie Ashe is named "Melissa" and there are two updates as "Melissa".

All updates March 30, 2005 and later are available (in HQ) at 640x480. Prior to that you get into the previous (4x3, but non-standard) HQ encoding resolution of 448x336. Yuck. 480x360 please!

Due to character limits in the cons I could not elaborate on the alphabetization problems in the model directory. Put simply, every letter has its own page, but the girls are not organized by the alphabet (based on their second letter, third letter, and so on). And the problem is magnified by the fact that they split up each letter over multiple pages, 40 girls per page, max. So with letter A there are 167 girls split over 5 pages. I wouldn't have a problem with this if the girls were alphabetized properly, but since they aren't I have to browse all five page to find a name of a girl I want. Absolutely terrible. Add this to the fact that some girls I like are not named properly (e.g. Jackie Ashe being named Melissa) and it does not make for a very enjoyable experience.

I counted up all the updates and this is what the daily update rate looks like since 2001 (mulitply by 365, except where noted, to get number of updates for the whole year):
2001 - 0.07* upd/day (approx, 7 updates over 104 days)
2002 - 0.18
2003 - 0.44
2004 - 1.02
2005 - 1.16
2006 - 1.21
2007 - 1.48
2008 - 1.98
2009 - 2.33* (approx, 133 updates over 57 days)
It is certainly nice to see that they keep improving the update rate. They are at the point where they have surpassed NA and Braz (both at 2 per day).

Again, a lot of improvements need to be made, a lot of which might be nit-picking, things that some people wouldn't kill a site over, but others, like the ZIP downloads, and the alphabetizing issue, are rather urgent in my eyes.

One last note:
The full scene downloads work with download managers, split scene don't.

Monahan (42) 84 is a fair score. I have been a BB member off and on over the last several years. In comparison to RA and Brazzers, they haven't done well to keep pace, in particular with their search function (it sucks). (Ask for Carmella Bing and you will get some Carmella Bing along with others who are not Carmella Bing such as Riley Evans.)

And in far too many cases their identifications are misspelled or just plain inaccurate.

Their videos frequently have far too much crap in them that make them unnecessarily large (in far too many cases it takes over 5 minutes just to get to the part where the female finally arrives, then too much chatter before we get to the good stuff.

Navigation needs upgrading. Way too many clicks just to get to the point to download a video.

That said, I'm OK with the 84 score because of TrashMan's "Pro's." BB is still producing lots of very good stuff and is still a good site. But NA and Brazzers are better.

BTW, their tit classification - Real/Fake - is not totally accurate. Some babes have videos made both before and after the aftermarket enhancements were installed so a new category, "Both" is needed. Other babes have tits that have clearly been subjected to some work by a Beverly Hills surgeon but are still listed as real.

TrashMan (Disabled) REPLY TO #1 - Monahan :

Agree on everything. Problem is that there is a very strict character limit on each section, so I can only write so much. The fact that I ran out of characters is a testament to the amount of PROS there are as well as the numerous CONS to the site. That said, they are still one of the top sites on the net...at least when compared to the dreck that is out there. It has a long way to go until it can be put in the same ball park as NA/Braz.

Agree especially with their Real/Fake info. I'd say they are maybe...80% accurate? Megan Jones has like the most obvious fake tits, and every single update on the site is with her post-boob job, yet it says her tits are "real". Yes, her tits for the first half of her career were in fact real, but since the boob job (2005? 2006?) they are definitely not "real".

Monahan (42) One last point I forgot in my comments.

The most frequent model appearing on the site as listed in the index is shown as: Actors: eeehh... I forgot.

The problem is that, without identification even the most gorgeous babes are totally lost in the huge number of videos. One not uncommon example is a babe called Misty Mae, a young chick with a very nice set of naturals with huge, pancake sized, areolae. I downloaded her video when it appeared in an update but was unable to find out if she has any other stuff on BB.
