||- Download speeds were a bit slow for me but it may just be a prolem on my end.
- Vids before 2009 mostly max out at 480x360
- Most of the pic sets clock in at 1020 x 720 or smaller
- Some advertising on the site but not terrible
- The 3k pixel photos only available in zip format
- A lot of nonexclusive content
||I was last here in '08 when I dished out an 81. Glad to see things have improved although, as we know, there's always room for improvement.
Pictures: About 9500 solo sets, 1350 HC sets and 880 lez sets. As noted, in '09 Twisty's started putting out 3000 pixel pictures but only in the zip sets. Why Shap? Especially since other sites go this big as an option and sometimes we just want to pluck the good stuff as opposed to downloading an 80mb file only to toss most of it later. Most sets have about 100 pics. Pics are professional and generally very good in terms of quality and lighting with some airbrushing, mostly on the solo sets. All sets have a zip function. Watermark is small, posting dates are included, and slideshow option is available (all definitely welcomed). About the only real negative is that most of the pics are 1020 or smaller but this is somewhat expected given the extensive history of content available.
Videos: About 1900 solo scenes, 950 HC scenes and 250 lez scenes available. As noted, the new stuff clocks in at 1280 sized and is very impressive in terms of quality. However, most of the stuff is 480x360. Once you go back more than about 18 months, you don't even get vid caps to see what the scenes contain (pain in the but). The oldest vids only come in clips, not full length scene. DL's available in WMV, MOV or pointless "phone" sized.
The model directory is excellent although, like most sites, sometimes models mysteriously pick up new names. The search has numerous variations available to sift through the content. Mostly, the tags seem pretty thorough but they are a bit weak on the oldest content in my opinion.
While they do have some exclusive content, most of the stuff is nonexclusive and can be found at other megasite / pornstar sites. Not necessarily bad, especially considering the trial price, but quality is sometimes downgraded in my comparisons to other sites when it comes to pic size, pic count per set, and video DL options.
The forum seems to be inhabited by people who are usually successful in getting their point across and they have lots of useful topics there. One of the better forums I've seen in pornland (excluding PU naturally).
I'm giving my score of 85 based solely on the Twistys content. Bump it up to about an 87 or 88 when you factor in the other sites (Annette Dawn, Bluefantasies and Naughtystaff are the only ones worth visiting).
Basically, you're not getting the cream of the crop of here in terms of quality or exclusivity. However, you are getting a ton of pretty good to very good content that keeps updating regularly and can keep you occupied for a while. This site should be rocking in a few more years when they get a lot more HD vids and if they bump the pic sizes to 3000 pixels outside of the zip only function.
