Pros: - Enormous amount of content: 7500 dvds and over 40000 scenes
- Great price at $14.95 / mo
- Stream or download
- Incredible amount of updates: 5 DVDs / day
- Easy to use webdesign
Cons: - Video quality doesn't go beyond "dvd"
- Lots of their stuff seem to be rather outdated and / or older
- Mediocre download speeds
- No pictures (not a problem for me, but might be for some)
- Video 'search bar' acting weird
Bottom Line: 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 With that being said, offering only DVD quality and below is a little bit outdated, but I think it fits the profile of the whole site at the end.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.

Monahan (40) Good review. Torn4do. With over 1800 videos added per year, most of them full length with only a few with deleted scenes, the site is a treasure trove of material.

But with over 7,500 videos now and closing in on 10,000 sometime next year, these guys need to have a much better pornstar naming accuracy and a better search function or they'll lose a lot of us. In fact I'd be willing to pay an extra $2 or $3 a month to support cleaning up the misspellings and misidentifications that are rampant on this site. They get an uptick for identifying pornstars in every scene (not done that often on DVD sites where the star list is just for the entire DVD), but they lost that uptick with their carelessness.

That is my only disagreement with your review. I think they should lose a few more points because they can't be bothered with accuracy.

Now that I think of it, maybe I should catalogue the entire site and provide a separate adjunct site for a fee. Now that's a job I'd like to do.

Thanks for your comment Monahan. You do have a point that they should try to clean it up, and I'm the same as you are in this regard, I wouldn't even mind paying a few extra bucks if that's the cost.

As for rating the site (points), in my opinion it's really a matter of perception. I was considering giving them a lower score, and I probably would have if I paid more for it, but at $14.95 a month I feel I got exactly what I paid for. It's kind of like the same as with Walmart... you don't expect it to be the best looking, nicest and perfectly organized store in the city, but rather to put up with minor inconveniences in order to get a really good value / price on the products you purchase. I hope this makes sense. :-)

Monahan (40) REPLY TO #2 - Torn4do :

Makes total sense. I've been a member for 3 years now so I remember way back when they went from 1 update per day to 5 and did not increase the price at all. They did increase the price since then but the PU price brought it back down.

I also remember how awesome I felt the site was when I first joined and would have given these guys a score in the high 90's.

The site hasn't changed much (except for the two integrated pay sites being added) so perhaps I am being a bit rough because the site is still the best for having so much material at such a reasonable price.
