||All in all I personally was extremely satisfied with my experience. I joined at the rate of $14.95 / mo and stayed for one month... at this price I believe you get an at least very decent deal for your money. The amount of content is simply overwhelming.
I liked the way the content was organized into categories, and especially that they didn't create twice the amount of them just to have a different 'folder' for a few videos they have. On the other hand the search function - as others have reported as well - was acting weird at times, but it didn't bother that much, I usually just got lost in browsing like mad man. There are other ways to find what you're looking for, for example by using the 'newest', 'recommended', 'top scenes this week' or some other filters.
There are no pictures whatsoever, except for the DVD covers and a few screenshots that you use for searching. It didn't bother me at all, I'm a 'video guy'. Video quality was OK. I'm one that would enjoy nice HD footage every once in a while, but most of the time I'm rather looking at the content of the video rather than its quality; as long as it reaches a 'watchable' level, I'm OK with it. With that being said, offering only DVD quality and below is a little bit outdated, but I think it fits the profile of the whole site at the end. You get different .wmv formats (high and medium) and a few extras (such as iphone / ipod formats). Streaming worked just fine for me. That top 'search bar' was a kind of difficult to understand... I guess you should be able to see the frames where you're trying to get, but as it was mentioned earlier too, it's so inaccurate that it was almost useless (you really don't get where you think you scrolled on it). This was a little bit of an inconvenience, but nothing major.
Download speeds varied. Sometimes it was just fine, especially when doing multiple downloads at the same time, but sometimes it slowed down to the point I'd consider bothering.
Overall I was pretty satisfied with my month spent at Videobox. For those who want pictures, top quality HD material, or maybe just have been browsing porn for 'too' long, this site might be repetitive and outdated and not so much of interest. Otherwise it offers an amazing amount of content, and a user interface that can be lived with, especially considering the price you're paying.
ps.: As an extra note, a friend of mine took a look at it who was interested in their real milf selection (where 20 year olds in high heels don't qualify as milf :-) ), and he was pleasantly surprised with the amount of actual good content available; according to him including series, and parts of series that he hasn't found anywhere else earlier.
