Pros: +Attractive models. Many are “names” from the Euro porn side of things.
+All exclusive pics and videos (109 vids and 90 photo galleries)
+Vids play in Flash or download in 3 sizes: wmv 1280x720 or 640x360; or iPod. Nice quality!
+Model personalities come out in vids, sometimes a lot, sometimes just a bit. They speak in their broken and accented English, and come on to you. It’s sexy!
+Downloads quickly climb to approx. 730Kbps
+Navigation from models list page is easy
+Login maintained after closing browser and rebooting. Convenient!
+Visitor’s section gives you a good taste. Try the video samples!
+Good monthly price of $19.95, which might not last past Sept.
Cons: -Only 37 models
-Some photoshoot content is non-nude or semi-nude
-19 of the zip download buttons (no galleries to view) only download zips from other galleries. Why lead the user to think that a video has a unique photo zip when it doesn’t? Flaky!
-Pics are only 1622x1080 as portrait, 1080x723 as landscape, but sometimes they’re the opposite. A given pic might be one size in the gallery, but the other in the zip. It’s completely unpredictable. And annoying!
-Galleries open in small scrollable window instead of a whole page. But you can use the “move” button to drag window to top left of screen and then resize -- each time.
-Gallery thumbs are all 125x125, so you can’t tell if a pic is portrait or landscape without opening it, nor how much more there is to see vs. the thumb (not WYSIWYG)
-Gallery names sometimes don’t match zip names. Confusing!
-Photoshoots don’t always match content of videos
-Generally, there’s not enough light in both pics and vids indoors
Bottom Line: For me, Eroberlin has been long awaited. It was supposed to come out in the spring, but apparently there were considerable delays.

It kind of reminds me of FTV Girls. There’s non-nude or semi-nude content, sometimes a bit of lez content, and sometimes toys in the pics (often in the vids). There’s a fair amount of “public” shooting. They like to end one shoot and start another in the same gallery. And the regular photo sizes are about the same, too.

I’d say this site does better with the videos than the pics in quality and available dimensions. The vids have no quick-cut editing or effects or annoying techno music. The only sound is straight from the shoot (sometimes with a bit of someone off camera, but not much). You get a sense of being with the girl for anywhere from 8 to 30 minutes.

The only problem is that sometimes you have to contend with noise from unexpected sources. A helicopter. A noisy, and very persistent, fly. Things like that.

But pics are important, too, and on this count the site is pretty muddled up. Why not have at least 3000 pixels in size on the long end in both orientations and stop this mixing of different sizes all willy-nilly?

People might not like downloading a zip expecting a pic to be 1622, as it was in the gallery, and then finding out that it’s 1080 in the zip. I know I don’t.

So 3000 px dimensions all around would really help the site. And the score, which I've nonetheless bumped up from 78 to 83 after getting feedback from the webmaster.

It really is a damn nice softcore video site, so to be fair I've notched it up on that basis.

Capn (28) A very comprehensive review.

It must have taken quite some time to research & compile that little lot!

Nice work! :0)

Yeah, there was quite a lot of clicking & counting, and also downloading this 'n that. Would've taken less time had there been fewer problems with the site.

Thank You for reviewing our website! It has been over 2 years in production and finally we go live this month. So as you can see it is not quickly built like many new websites we see on the Internet.

All of your 'cons' are for the photos and zips. So as you correctly think, VIDEO is the focus of eroBerlin! Photos take a backstage to the Streaming and Download videos. If you only like Photos, then you will be unhappy with eroBerlin. But if you care about movies of sexy Russian and European girls playing with their pussies in public, you will love us!

Our movies currently stream in-browser as Flash at 2000/kbs. They are good quality but we are always worried about the most perfection. So, we are converting our streaming videos to mp4 with 3 stream options - LO (1000/kbs), HI (2000/kbs) and HD (3000/kbs). This conversion will be done in 2-3 weeks. You can already see these 3 new options on a few of the videos.

I am not sure what you mean by the zip file bugs, but our webmaster will check it out today!

If you have any problems please email us. We spend a lot of our life on this project and we want eroBerlin to be the best!

Hi Drooler, the zip file bug you finds (all videos show zip button) is fix. Small problem in the code! Thank you!

Denner (233) Hey Ze Droolah
Can't believe I missed this review from your hand - saw a link to it at a thread today.
Went browsing at the site - AND it looks great and somehow a bit different/new in style - the videos, I mean (of course).
As usual your review is very helpfull - and I guess it's really worth it for a softcore/mast. -videofreak - in spite of few models - but again some of the great ones included.
It seems like the videos are typical somewhere between 8 and 30 minuttes - and according to you: worth it, again?
I liked what I saw in the preview - and those rather special leather outfits are quite sexy - not TOO fetish, but just....yes, sexy.
After a while (your review was in september) - do you still think it's an 83? - and I guess it could have been higher, had the photo-sections been more up to your requirements...
Cheers, mate!

I wish I could tell you what I thought it was worth now, but I only joined once and haven't been back. When I was there, I liked some of the videos with the girls talking in their accents.

They seem to update on an irregular basis -- depends on shooting schedules and whatnot. If that has changed, I wouldn't be able to say.

If it's still 19.95 USD, it might be worth a try (?)

Ok, I just joined - AND this does look like something a bit different - in a quite positive way.
Some of those videos are simply great - the girls whith their broken english and all (like you mentioned) - AND that is a plus...
Look forward to have fun here - thanks again for the info and all....at this early state I quite understand your relatively fine score for the site. The navigation/download ect. - well, is sure will take some time to get used to... but it seems really worth those $19.95...

Drooler (220) REPLY TO #7 - Denner :

I'm just absolutely smitten by their "Julia," aka Dasha, Yulia, Ulia ... Ooolia (?) the dark-eyed Russian girl. In the Eroberlin vids, she's got a real potty mouth, saying weird things like "Fuck me, mosquito!" At first, I was a bit taken aback at what a little minx she turned out to be, but I've managed to make my own personal adjustment and it's fine with me now.

Like, I remember first seeing Jenna Haze in photos and I thought, "She's a bit scrawny, but she's cute!" Later I saw some of her videos -- and her killer libido! And her Dyson-vacuum anus!

Of course, I really do love it that girls can look so sweet and innocent and then turn out to be so very naughty! That's having it all!

Enjoy the site!

Denner (233) REPLY TO #8 - Drooler :

Just another thanks. - Oh, yes, I'm enjoying the site - and even if they only got less than 40 models, it's great...that 'Julia' and her mountain-thing, damn fine...agree..

BTW: They have some scenes where you could get the impression, that the models are from this and this country - like Switzerland, Italy or Denmark.
They got Billy Raise IN Denmark, but she's certainly not danish. Guess they take the tour/trip and find some locations around Europe (Like Julia in the Northern Italian mountains) - and Yes, those scenes with Billy Raise are filmed in Denmark - at the harsch coast of what's named here as Western Jutland at the Northsea towards the British Isles.
And I still cannot get over those videos with all that sweet/sexy broken english...
