Must have jinxed it

I just hate when I post a glowing, high review, then things start going wrong within a few days.

First problem is once again an "update" to 1byday (1-4-10) that was an update on Eve Angel Official two weeks ago. I take it they don't understand how unfair this is to those of us who pay $25 for Eve's exclusive content only to see it show up on their network that we pay another $35 for. From November 16th to current (January 5th), there have been EIGHT of these updates that come from Eve Angel Official. To make matters worse, Eve Angel Official only has 18 updates since November 16th.

Maybe I am jumping ahead of myself on the criticism. It should be noted that none of the Eve updates on 1byday have the videos ONLY the photo sets. So, I guess that is to make members of DDF Prod join Eve Angel Official to get the videos. It's still unfair to either side. I hadn't noticed those when I posted my review, but Monahan left a comment about some updates not having videos. I hadn't looked at Eve's content since I had all of it already, but took a glance to make sure I didn't miss anything and saw the video-less updates.

Nope, not the only problem. Our ISP finally picked up 25M internet speed. I upgraded to it from 10M. For 3 weeks, DDF Prod was giving me excellent 3 MB/s download speeds.

This past Friday, I signed in and started downloading some Cindy Hope videos, download speed = 15 KB/s or about 200 times slower than I had been downloading. I thought maybe it was my ISP, but speedtest.net said I was downloading at 25.46 M speed. I figured it was maybe one bad day and waited until Saturday to try again, 15 KB/s again, same on Sunday.

I go back on Monday, speed started out fast, 3.2 MB/s but before one video had downloaded it was back down to 15 KB/s. I just tried before posting this comment and am seeing a little improvement with 250 kb/s, but even that is way slower than what I had been downloading at. Of note, the download speed improved when I went directly to the site the video was on, instead of downloading through the DDF Prod site.

I'll give them a few days to work this out before changing my review score, but nearly a week has been lost at this point. Hopefully, things will improve on the DL speed. I think I'm fighting a losing battle on the Eve Angel part.

Drooler (218) When I saw the eveangelofficial content start to show up on 1byday, I thought, "How typical!" Of them.

My best guess is that they justify this kind of practice by saying that it gives non-members of that site a chance to get it at the one they joined. Well, whatever their rationale might be, I think they've gotten really greedy, trying to get people to sign up for their sites at $80 for three months and so on.

But frankly, their multiple site offers do not impress. Most of the sites are either dead or on life support. 1byday is the only one that's really worth bothering with anymore, IMHO. But not that often.

Hi,

We're aware of a download speed problem on 1By-Day. We're working on fixing it. In the meanwhile, you could try downloading the 1By-Day vids from the DDFProd.com members area instead of 1By-Day.com

Best regards,
Endre

Denner (233) After exotics' latest review - AND getting close to finish this turn at 21.Sextury network, I considered joining DDF - in spite of all those re-runs and problems lately...

But now - I'll put it on hold (like at the stock market, ho,ho)

The bad thing is, I don't know which would be worse if the Eve sets had the video and photo sets on 1byday or like it is where they are only giving the photo sets. That's kind of a backdoor method of cross-sales. Reminds me of those extremely cute Ally Bank commercials where the guy asks the little girl if she wants a pony. She says yes, he gives her a toy pony. The other little girl says yes, he brings out a live one. The one with the toy pony gives him a look like, "what the hell?"

Would you believe that I didn't even enter the Meet Eve contest? There was probably a catch there too. I talked to Denys years and years ago is an email, back when photographers were just normal, really lucky, guys, these different business practices just don't seem like something he would do. If he is off shooting new material and they need to fill 1-2 updates here and there with content from their other sites, I can understand that, but 8 in 6 weeks is a little much.

The one thing I really like about the multiple sites is the remastered old videos. DDF has two of my top 3 Sandra Shine videos, one is of her and Rita Faltoyona with a guy. Sandra completely sells her desire to jump in with the guy in it. The other is Sandra on a Sybian. The DDF Prod site has those in full scenes and about double the resolution I had them in and they were in parts. Eve has a few as well. Peaches. I thought that was a really nice move. Also, I had never been a member on DDF Busty or Cherry Jul until they went to this format. Still, 15 KB/s, isn't going to let me see much about those sites.

Endre,

Maybe it would help for me to clarify the problem. I'm not having as much problem downloading directly from the 1byday site as I am downloading the 1byday content from the DDF Prod site.

I tested both after posting this comment and got these results.
From DDF Prod downloading 1byday content: 18 kb/s
Directly from 1byday: 219 kb/s

It reminds me of the time, last New Years(?) when you all offered the full network and the servers were almost unresponsive. And like I said, I will be as patient as possible. I understand there are some things you all can't control, but I did think it was best to mention it right now since there was a possibility you all didn't know about the problem.

I can agree with the wait and see method. I think once they get the servers working better, it will be one of the best sites on the internet, especially for those of us who have been around on 1byday for years and can now get better quality of our old favorite videos and new updates too.

rome476 (0) I have to say that I think the network deal for 3 months is a fair deal; this is high end quality porn for a little more than $25 a month. I did 1 run and will do it again in 3-6 months. I only wish there was a full year available with a better average monthly rate.

Monahan (38) I had the same issue as exotics4me with D/L speed. I am not signed up for Eve Angel and don't plan to, but the erratic nature of their service is troubling...and the number of updates that have been posted but have not been loaded on their servers makes no sense.

Their customer support replied to me 48 hours after my email by simply saying that I should check back periodically to see if the update has been loaded. No other explanation.

I love the content but the support and D/L speed issues are really starting to bother me.

I would think that DDF would not post the header for an update until the content is ready for the Member to access.
