Teen Dreams (2)

||- My original review expired yesterday, so here is a newly updated review to reflect the changes in Teen Dreams and it received a boost in the score from my 2007 review. One of the internet's biggest sites around.
- New servers deliver lightning fast downloads to me, US based as are the servers, regularly hits 100% of my max DL speed when using DownThemAll with Firefox
- The content over the last few years sees a raise in quality, pics top out in the 2500ish range and come zipped.
- Viv Thomas "bonus" content is equal to full access to the Viv Thomas video site and photo site as well. BL explains.
- Video quality is above average, 640-720 high end, 2000+ bitrates on last two years videos.
- Site forum is not only active, but has one of the funnest, most helpful and most knowledgeable groups of porn fans on it, outside of PU of course! Customer service is very responsive.
- Less than $20 price is icing on the cake
- Six updates per day, five days per week
||- Navigation has improved, but still could be hard for some to get used to. I've noticed that now when you click on a letter in the model list, the models come up alphabetically. Used to this wasn't the case, so this isn't quite the con it once was.
- Still suffers from alias problems when naming models. Sandra Shine is listed as Judith for example. I just pick a letter or two at a time and scan through them for recognizable faces.
- Videos named the same!
||I have been impressed with the forward progress this site has made. Back when it seemed to be stalling in its progress, they picked up the Viv Thomas bonus content.
The Viv picture sets are not in zips, but you can download them all with DownThemAll add-on with Firefox. Also, the videos on Viv's bonus content are not as high quality as the ones you get from Viv's official video site, but they are 640 high end 750-1000 bitrate and look plenty good enough considering those come from a site that is $30 a month! His videos adds a lot of depth to this site as well. Viv has always been one of my favorites of Euro videos, hardcore, solo, girl/girl, those are all here for you to download and it comes free with Teen Dreams.
One thing I forgot to mention in the pros is the use of "guest models". This is an interesting feature that adds 25 pictures per set from other sites and lets you get a sampling of those site's content, quality and maybe even discover a new model or two.
The biggest complaint that I remember members having about TD is the speed of downloads. I've tried various download managers with the site and find that some won't work, Free Download Manager doesn't seem to work with the site, but try DownThemAll add-on for Firefox. Change the filter to download only movie and archive files, right click the page, click down them all and it will load up the videos and zip/rar files and do the work for you. Really pushes my speed limit as well, I had never seen my speed top 1,200 kb/s but it has here, 1,296 kb/s. I do limit my number of connections to 2 though.
Despite the old issues with finding models you are looking for, the site's navigation once you find the said model is really easy to work with. All the picture sets come up for the model and the movies as well, with DownThemAll, you can skip even having to click on each set to download.
Picture size is coming in at just under 2500 high end. Movies at 640-720 high end with 2000 bitrates. Pretty impressive numbers for a site that updates 30 times per week!
I want to compare it to Twistys, but I think there are a few notable differences. Like another site, Nubiles, Teen Dreams does shoot plenty of never before seen models, giving it more of an amateur feel than Twistys has. That is probably a major pro for some of you, but you all know me, I like my major glam models that I'm used to!
There is really no way for me to guess what the percentage of exclusive and non-exclusive content there is. For me, Twisty's Treat edges Teen Dreams out here. Though there is exclusive content on here, especially in the solo videos. Love the Eve Angel in the bathroom video, staring at herself in the mirror and brushing her hair obviously turns her on as much as it does me since she ends up with one foot on the sink and masturbating.
The amount of content can be overwhelming. I usually stay a member for 3 months at a time, then come back the next year. I like the changes and definitely recommend it!
