||- Part of the Reality Kings network, one of the best, if not best standalone sites offered on a network.
- Lots of content, as of 7/23/09 there is a total of 367 scenes with weekly updates.
- Mostly Euro models, including at least one set of nearly all of the major Euro stars. Also, there is a lot of b/g hardcore here including with some Euros that rarely do b/g. BL will go into that.
- Last 3 years quality has been pretty good, videos at 720x480 with 1400 bitrate, quality 3 years or older is 352x240 and cut into smaller parts.
- Pictures available, screenshots, zipped for easy download and some of these are huge, as many as 600 photos in one set.
- Site averages out to less than $1 a month when included with Reality Kings TBP price.
- Some of the better known models have multiple sets.
- Well above average download speeds
||- To start with, this site has two flaws for me. One is the navigation. Not that it is hard to navigate. You can search all updates on the site and start scrolling. There are 50 updates per page and some of the thumbnails don't even show the model's face. This leads to clicking every set, hitting back button and starting over.
- The other is the quality of the older content. The updates from 3 years ago and back have the videos split into at least 3 parts and are of poor quality 352 high end. As with most sites that feature Euro models, that older content is usually the best.
||I rarely will single out a network site for a full review, but I think Mike's Apartment is worthy of it.
The site is a reality site that wants you to believe these unsuspecting Euro models are looking for an apartment to stay in. You know what happens next, "But...I have no how do you say...money?" The best part for me is the way the Euro models show that they don't take their acting very seriously as they often start laughing. I've wondered about a lot of the b/g sets that say the guy with the model is her husband or boyfriend that also needs some place to stay.
This is true in at least a couple of the videos. Cameron Cruz/Mona Lisa's real-life husband, John Cruz is with her on this site in a hardcore set and I believe a couple of the newer ones are with their real boyfriends. You know what that means, don't you? Very realistic and passionate sex.
Just a brief sampling of the top Euros that have been on this site: Eve Angel (2), Simony Diamond, Eufrat, Stracy Stone/Bijou (2), Cindy Hope (2), Wivien/Vivien, Sophie Moone, Angel Dark, Veronika Simon, Cameron Cruz/Mona Lisa (2), Zafira (2), Bambi, just to name the ones I have downloaded recently.
Here is the big part for me, Eufrat, Stracy, Zafira don't have much b/g on the internet, but they do b/g on Mike's Apartment. Also, some of these Euros end up on the other sites in the network as well. Cindy Hope has a recent scene on another RK site We Live Together.
They also do get the girls to talk a little in English. Eve Angel's first appearance on the site was in February 2004, that was pretty early in Eve's career. You can't help but laugh in a good way when she admits in English, "A deedo" (dildo) that she brought with her would be the only lucky thing that day.
The download limit that is often talked about rarely becomes a problem if you break the sites into download sessions and download to site named folders. I downloaded 17 full videos and 17 zipped screenshot sets last night for a total of 6.1 GB, well below the 10 GB daily limit. So, don't let that limit push you away. Plus, if you do hit it, they won't cancel your membership. They just tell you to come back in 24 hours.
The content on Mike's Apartment is some of the most collectible for Euro fans on the internet, especially with the rare b/g content. For me, if I had never been a member, I would pay the TBP price just for this site. One annoyance is that Mike couldn't keep his mouth shut early in the site's life. He would ask some of the dumbest questions ever asked in porno, "Do you play video games?" Mike then starts having a conversation with the cameraman about Family Guy! In his defense, Mike does grovel to the models probably the same way we would! "Oh my god, look at these perfect boobs" If the older content was remastered this site would rate in the low to mid 90s.
In closing, this is the site that makes Reality Kings my favorite network. Also remember, if the content wasn't good, the DL limit wouldn't bother anyone!
