Pros: Well organized site with great navigation and a substantial archive of DVD's
Cons: This site caters to the anal,,DP,throat-gagging crowd.Nearly all updates feature these scenes-those that do not feature bargain basement DVD'S that you really do not want to watch due to poor technical quality or the unattractiveness of the performers.A new gimmick on Videobox,is Premium channels,an upgrade from the "premium subscription".These channels feature Vivid and Evil Angel.I have not subscribed to either,but have "previewed" some of the content however, it appears to be pretty much the same stuff I can get with my regular premium subscription,just newer.
Bottom Line: Huge archive of content,well organized site easy to navigate.Must work at expanding their criteria for DVD acquisitions.

Thagnut (12) You're a dope.
This is probably the largest DVD website in the world.
They're putting up 5 vids a day. They can't all be gold.
It's one thing to say they're deficient, but really you're saying that you don't like this general type of material. That's completely subjective and not a very worthy criticism.

DVD's used to cost $30 each. If $18 for access to 6,500 of them is not a good enough deal for you, then go find a better one. You won't find it.

It is one thing to disagree,quite another to resort to name calling,and not a very intelligent debating technique.I am sure all are well aware of the price of DVDs.The cost of Videobox-and that they offer extensive content,and the problems that I felt are present were part of my review,and if you do not like the content perhaps YOU should have just moved on.

Wittyguy (95) Let me try here. Videobox is one of the top scoring sites here and on almost every other mainstream review site. They have a ton of content, good navigation and decent quality. True, they're starting to tweak people with their premium channel stuff but it's still miles ahead of most other sites except when it comes to exclusivity.

With a score of 70 it sounds to me like you just didn't like the content. While that's perfectly fine, that shouldn't necessarily drive the score down to a 70. At that point, you're letting personal preferences dictate your review score, not the attributes of the site itself in comparison to similar porn sites. Obviously you're entitled to your opinion but I don't think many others would agree with you.

I was not comparing Videobox with any other site,and yes,I do have issues with some of the content-as a member I feel as if I have some room to comment on that.And frankly,if a review is not a place for opinions then I am at a loss.

uscue (39) REPLY TO #4 - nunya :

What I think Wittyguy was getting at was that the review you gave made it difficult to understand the 70 rating. You're right, the purpose of the reviews is to show your opinions on sites and what they do. What he was getting at is that your review only mentioned personal distastes of the actual content of the DVDs they offer...next time try to do a little well-rounded review about other aspects of the site as well to both give info to other people that are interested in the site and also justify the score a little. I say that because most of us here really do take into account the scores these sites average when deciding what sites to join, so some people hope to see a little more explanation for extremely high/low scores or scores that aren't the norm for a site.

The only other thing is that Videobox is a special kind of site: they don't make their own content. They simply offer DVDs of varying niches for people to download. For most when reviewing porn sites, dislike of content isn't the same as bad content. I don't like lesbian porn but I'm not going to give a DVD site a negative score because they give mostly lesbian DVDs if the site as a whole is run well, has lots of daily updates, is a bargain of a price and easy downloads. I'll give them their due score for running a great site but mention that I prefer more variety (and possibly deduct only a few points if it's supposed to have well-rounded stuff, but not 10, 20 or 30 points. That's excessive by PU's standards).

exotics4me (463) The main thing I will say is if you find the models unattractive that VB has, you most likely shouldn't be planning on joining many other sites. They have one of the biggest collections of TOP models on the internet. Hard to possibly believe that you are that disappointed in the models' looks.

Also not for sure what you mean by the technical quality. If you download the DVD versions of their movies, the minimum resolution is 640x480 (standard view) or 720x480 (widescreen) with bitrates that vary between 3,500-7,000 kb/s. The industry standard for DVD resolution is 640-720x480 with bitrates between 3,000-10,000.

Either way, you mention that thagnut didn't put up an intelligent debate, you didn't put up anything to debate! Just a few mass generalizations to justify a 70 score with no examples. That is the main reason you're getting this much flak. If you truly believe it is a 70 and gave some really good points, even if just your opinion, I doubt you would have had as many negative replies.

Denner (233) That I do not agree with nunyas score and some of the cons is one thing.

But I certainly agree with this fellow user, that name calling has no place here at PU...it should be banned.

RagingBuddhist (63) Nope - I don't agree with his score, but it's his call, not mine. But, with a score and an opinion like that, I can't say that I'd stick around for a second month.

3 objections here:

1. Thagnut - I've seen some foolish debates on here, but your jumping right in with the name calling has to be the most childish thing I've seen on here. Nunya's right - you should've kept it to yourself and just moved on.

2. Wittyguy - I've never rated a site with anything but personal preference and wouldn't want to see anyone rate 'em any other way.

3. This is another "review" that looks like a comment to me.

Sorry I hurt your feelings there Nunya.

How about this - you're not a dope - you're a smart, noteworthy critic of the adult industry - you just say dopey things!

There - this way you're protected in a bubble of respect & proper etiquette. I hope you feel better now.

It needed to be said. First he insults him, then he tops it off with a heavy dose of sarcasm. I just thought I'd add some sarcasm of my own.
