ALS Scan (2)
Was a member approx. 1 month prior to this review.
||- As with both ALS sites, the quality and completeness of the content is as good and high as it gets.
- Newer videos hit to true HD 1920x1080 resolution, even the older ones are 720 high end.
- Picture sets are beyond complete, one picture set, Anita Pearl Scene 2, when downloaded in high resolution is...912 MB! Pictures can go up to 3800 high end and some of the sets near 400 pictures.
- Excellent download speeds, though can't get it to work with DL Manager, will allow resume in Firefox though.
- Some very good old content that features some of porn's biggest names when they were younger, love the old Anetta Keys sets
||- Had a frustrating experience as a member of both ALS Angels, ALS Scan, seems their sign-in page goes through the same server. So, when I clicked members to bring up my saved login information, it would be ALS Angels username and password, even though I was on ALS Scan, never happened before last month.
- See the above one and why this one makes the con list, after signing in to get in members area, have to sign in again when you go to download a video, so the confused server was causing me major headaches in accessing content.
- The models as a whole are beautiful, but they are almost all very, very skinny.
||ALS Scan has been a favorite of mine for awhile now. I can see and agree with some of the complaints like the content is repetitive, but I can get over that for the high quality.
A common complaint that I have with both ALS sites is that the navigation can be confusing. I've signed in before, clicked the button for models, only to click a set and be asked to sign in again, what the hell? I just signed in! They do have what looks to be a separate model page for members, and I guess for whatever reason, I wasn't on it, instead, on the guest's model page, even though I had just signed in. Then there was the confusion with the server giving me my ALS Angels username and password when signing in on ALS Scan and of course, those are different so it rejected my sign-in attempt.
Minor complaints? Sure. But can be a bit of a hassle, especially for the impatient.
Quality wise this site is as good as any. I am not positive on this, but I want to believe the lowest quality videos are 720 high end, and the newer videos are 1920 high end. I might be nitpicking a little, but I do think this could be a negative for some members, a lot of the newer videos have 1280 high end as the LOWEST quality option and if you have a slow connection, you are going to be there awhile just to get the lowest quality ones. Some of the lowest quality videos are 500 MB for some scenes.
On the other hand, if you love the high quality this is a great site. The quantity is also very high. Much higher than sister site ALS Angels.
I'm one of the ones that likes the huge picture sets that have 200-400 photos in each set, so I really like that about ALS, the newer picture sets are almost as big of a file as the videos!
My complaints are minor when compared to the quality and quantity. They do also go back and remaster older content, kind of frustrating, since they take members votes on which sets to remaster and it rarely is the ones I am wanting remastered. This site does have an added bonus for collectors, since there is some older content of Sandy from Club Sandy, Anetta Keys as Alana, the retired and irreplaceable Mia Stone and Sophie Moone.
In general, the ALS staff, photographers, seem to have good relationships/friendships with the models, so you get some natural laughs from the models and smiles that don't look fake. I really can't complain about the skinny models, because they do have the other site with the curvier models, but I do want to add it in case anyone is wondering about the style of models. Put it this way, Sandra Shine, Eve Angel and Eufrat were too curvy for this one and are on the ALS Angels site instead. Starting to wonder about that myself. Not saying ALS is milking two sites by splitting the top models between their sites, but it is starting to look a little suspicious since both sites must be using the same server/different port? to sign in.
Still, I recommend the site for the quality and amount of content.
