Status: Current Member for over 1 year (at the time of review).
Pros: OLD Review (1/17/07)Pros:

- 5 FULL videos per day
- Good search engine
- Price is best of any video site
- Offers DVD quality at a $5 per mo. premium
- Permits selective downloads via 30 second segments that can be automatically connected.
- Has a member review section for each video and for each scene
- The vast majority of the scenes have a cast list that is interactive so a member can generate a list of all offerings with a particular porn star.

UPDATE (4/2/09) Pros:

All "pro" comments still apply.
-Excellent blog was added with substantial involvement of the site's management that really adds a lot to the members' enjoyment of the site.
-Anime has been added.
Cons: OLD Review (1/17/07) Cons:

- No pics at all
- With over 800 vids per year and the limitations on acquiring licenses, a few of the vids are rather poor.
- Occasional mis-identification of the talent

UPDATE (4/2/09) Cons:

- No "real" HD (but some high bit-rate stuff obviates the absence of HD)
- Added two major sources (Evil Angel and Vivid) accessible only at substantial additional cost.
- Comments have deteriorated into wise guy comments about the screencaps so they are of little real value.
- Significant deterioration in the accuracy of the model identification which creates a serious problem using the search engine.
- More "Bargain Bin" compilation videos that contain scenes that have already been posted earlier on the site.
Bottom Line: OLD Review (1/17/07) Bottom Line:

This site exceeds all possible comparisons to other sites and is a bargain. The occasional obscure weird vids (midgets, hirsute Japanese, trannie) pop up once in a while but so what? The member review section is new and the members haven't figured out what a "review" is because most postings are more like a chat room than an evaluative discussion of the scene or the video.

Great site, great deal. Go for it!

UPDATE (4/2/09) Bottom Line:

The site continues to have the largest number of videos of any site (over 6,000 at this writing) and add 5 per day which is 1,865 new videos per year.

That may be a contributing factor to the deterioration in model identification. The sloppiness in model identification has really made the site a lot less desirable for me because I see the searchability of a site to be very important.

The introduction of Vivid and Evil Angel productions were added with a lot of fanfare but they hit a serious sour note with many when they belatedly added the rather high supplemental charge to access the videos from these studios.

As mentioned in the "Pro" section, the blog is an excellent interactive forum. Management of the site gets into a lot of substantial discussion with the members which is very good.

I reduced my original score from 97 to 90 for two major reasons.

- The significant increase in the sloppiness in model identification is a major annoyance that hurts the site's value.
- The lack of thought given to the roll-out of the two premium studios. (Had they announced the move along with the cost associated at the outset, the reception would have been a lot better.) In my opinion, the roll-out also took their attention away from their number one mission, and that is their primary offerings.

Once again, photo enthusiasts need not apply. There are none.

Denner (233) Monahan, apart from the damn fine review, I think you give us some news here?
For this user anyway: That VideoBox now are up to 5 full videos a day. It look like they do NOT want VideosZ to have that privilege alone - well, that competition is to the benefit of one kind of people:
Porn-users.
Thanks for the update, too.

turboshaft (24) I was checking out the price of those premium channels -- $18! Considering a regular membership, with its access to so many DVDs, starts at $10, I cannot believe that people would really want an extra channel for that much cash. Does Evil Angel = evil price?

Goldfish (67) I enjoyed the contrast between the old and new review.

Offering new content is never a bad thing but Videobox made a marketing blunder with these new channels. They should have sold them as separate Web sites and maybe give a discount if you joined two or more.

Monahan (40) REPLY TO #3 - Goldfish :

I agree completely. They first included the new channels in their search results but unless you committed to the fee for the site the results were just a tease. The notion was not thought through carefully by any stretch. I suspect it may have cost them some business.
