||Brazzers caters to the big fake boobs getting fucked by huge cocks niche extremely well. Looking at the top 20 stars with the most scenes, all have huge boobs but the only one with natural tits is Gianna Michaels. Perhaps it's because of the very similar makeup but, looking at a list of scenes, I sometimes have a hard time telling apart the stars from just the preview. They all look the same to me.
Site design and navigation left me a great impression. The look is consistent throughout the site and everything seems to be two clicks away at most; I wish, though, that they solved some of the metadata glitches: why on Earth do they have only the guy name in some of the scenes cast list?
Flawless search engine, favorite options, detailed star profiles, plenty of keywords, ... I confess I ran out of space when listing the pros. I found specially cool the request feature: you get to make 10 performer requests per month by the simple click of a button. I don't know how much they'll listen to it but it felt good.
There's also a lot of community options. Not only the extremely active forum (a forum should be a must for any site) but they also recently embedded a sort of social network (a la facebook or MySpace) that lets users and, more importantly, porn stars get a profile, message between them, upload photos and videos, leave comments and so on. Didn't try much of it but, since several porn stars have been active in the forums for a long time, I suppose this Brazzpace / Facezzers might eventually get some traction.
It's weird that Brazzers doesn't release videos in widescreen format and still goes with 4:3. There was even a recent survey in the members area where more than 50% of users answered that they'd rather have videos in Widescreen HD; almost 70% demanded widescreen regardless of quality. Funny thing is 20% answered they didn't care about format as long as they got their porn.
