Status: Current Member for less than 1 month (at the time of review).
Pros: -Vast amount of content
-Decent price, one of the few sites I have ever seen where it is cheaper to join by renewing free trial membership than by joining outright, although probably a mistake on their part
-Plenty of variety, although some niches aren't as well represented
-Download managers work
-Download speeds are decent, I averaged 900 KB/s
-Excellent member interaction with reviews and opinions of videos and scenes
-Frequent updates
-Ability to creat custom clips, so you only have to download what you want.
Cons: -Site navigation is mediocre. For a smaller site, their style might be great, but for a site this large it just doesn't work
-Search function often returns a mixed bag of seemingly random stuff, or doesn't work at all
-Model labels are often incorrect. I can accept that they can't be held responsible for what is on the DVD, but when the members comment that the model name is incorrect, would it be that difficult to fix it?
-Video quality is mediocre in this age, and the file size of newer videos seems quite large given the quality of video
-Site bills directly rather than using a 3rd party biller
-Quality of videos is very hit-or-miss, with most in my opinion being miss.
Bottom Line: I know there are tons of reviews of this particular site, and I am sure that everyone at PU has been or will be a member eventually. This site used to be one of the best if not the best porn site on the net. However, lately I feel like they are focussing on stupid little user interface issues rather than resolving major issues with the site. How many times have they redesigned the front page? While adding user costum edited clips is interesting, who has the time to dig through that shit?

They should focus more on fixing the problems with the site. Get quality rather than quantity. They already have a huge archive, I don't think many would be dissappointed with 4-5 updates per week if they were good updates. Also, a site this large needs better navigation. The videos can easily be tagged with more info than gonzo and one on one. Tags for tats, breast size (other than large), and body type would be nice. If they don't want to do it, let the users tag the scenes - I'm sure plenty will.

This overall is a good site, and there is a reason it is so popular, but they could certainly take a cue from sites like American Vice that unfortunately failed. Like I said, everyone here should and will become a member here at some point or another, but that doesn't mean videobox doesn't have plenty of issues to resolve.

RustyJ (145) Thanks for the review. Made me remember that it was about the time I subscribed to this one too. I just fear the amount of material is overwhelming when all the titles are full length instead of clips ;)

Denner (233) Fine review - and as slutty mentions: a lot/everyone at PU has been here.
Still, it's nice to get an update on this site know and then.

Rob12 (0) Yeah you hit the nail on the head man. The webmaster on this site either doesn't give a damn or figures that we peasants who pay for the site don't know what we're talking about. I've joined this site again and am ready to leave again after getting most of what I wanted to download, I'll wait another 3-4 months and come back check it out and probably rejoin. The model names and lousy search engine probably wont be improved either good review. Rob12

TheSquirrel (53) Good review. I like what you say. I think there are a lot of cons about this site that newbies miss becasue they are not aware. They become more focussed on the amount of material rather than the quality, and the lousy customer service. For me this site had the worst download spped of any I have ever experienced. I joined this site once about two years ago and never returned.

Thanks, its a pity they don't improve the navigation elements a bit, this site would be so much better if they did. As you said, I assume they just don't care since the site is so enormously popular - why bother?

slutty (111) REPLY TO #4 - TheSquirrel :

Really? I never had any problems with download speeds, sometimes during what I'm sure are peak download times it would slow a bit. Perhaps you were logging in at bad times or they had technical problems when you were a member? Certainly not the best download speeds, I'm sure they use a ton of bandwidth.

I agree that a lot of people probably join the site and think "holy shit, what a ton of content", but in my experience I have typically only downloaded like one scene out of every 10 DVDs (which is not a good ratio) - and I probably end up going back and deleting 50% of those later...

Would you beleieve a low of 1kb/s? Not kidding! At the same time I was getting trouble, some members said download speeds were fine, and other members were reporting really slow speeds. Maybe it was worse in Europe because that seems to be where most of the reports of slow speeds were coming from. At the time I was getting no other problems from any other site.

Wow, that is crazy low. Weird, maybe it is a Europe thing? Perhaps local ISPs in the UK were capping their bandwidth since they are such a hog? What'd it take, like 5 days to download a small video?

It was always in the afternoon, so it was impossible to stream and pointless to download in the afternoon. It picked up after midnight. That was one thing that was really good about American Vice. I found their speeds really good at any time of day. They will really be missed.
