Frustrating site

Didn't feel like writing a full review, just wanted to note that this site is very disappointing. Though they do not have DRM anymore, and the ability to download a good portion of their magazine archive in pdf format is pretty interesting; the navigation is terrible (looking at the preview would lead you to believe the navigation is pretty good - but the navigation of the member area is very different and significantly worse). Also all their content is not available (yet?). I would not recommend joining this site, especially since a lot of their content is available elsewhere - videobox for example; unless you really want to download the magazine archive, which I guess might be worth it as the TBP price is pretty good.

Pat, I'll try to write a more thorough review later in the week if I have time. The catalog of downloadable dvds is about 470 titles, so the size of the site is pretty decent. The "High" movies are 640x480 1500 kbps typcially, wmv only.

Like I said, my main problem is navagation and inability to use download managers, I'm sure they have some great scenes - but they are pretty much impossible to find unless you know the name of the dvd you are looking for (can't search by star of films)

In response to Rome, the download speeds were excellent whenever I logged in (1.4 MB/sec), however I was unable to get any download managers to work.

Thnaks for the info. I'll keep my eyes open for that review. There are a couple of Private videos that I'd like to download.

moonbyrd (0) What kind of resolution is the magazine archive? Comparable to print versions? From the TBP review I got the impression that the older magazines are not in PDF format, which is understandable given that they go back to 1965, but if they are scanned JPEG's, what kind of quality? Can you read the print etc.

Probably not interested enough to join anyway but curious.

Thanks for the feedback. Stuff like this is the reason why we're currently working on heavily improving the website!

Stay tuned, it will be ready this spring!

moonbyrd,

the quality of the PDFs is excellent, you can zoom in - read the writing easily, very crisp. Definitely not scans. I'd say about 80% or so of the downloadable magazines are available in PDF, however they only have 40-60 or so of each magazine series (Private, Pirate, Triple X, Sex) and they have a few special editions. This is not their older material, the oldest magazine in each series was:
Sex 36
Triple X 45
Pirate 71
Private 180

Hope that helps, I'd wait to join until they make the improvements the Private Webmaster spoke of in his comment, it could get much better with just some navigation tweeks.

OK, then the site itself is misleading, because the preview shows all the covers of the various magazine lines from the first issue. Also Duke's review at TheBestPorn.com implies that all the magazines would be available: "The Private mag is the best section with things categorized by decade going back to the first issue in 1965. All of the site's issues can be viewed online or downloaded in full as in JPEG zip files and newer ones have PDF and JPEG options."

I just thought it would be fun to see how styles have changed over the decades. I have a few old copies of Private magazines myself, none of them older than 1980's, though.

Anyway I'll keep an eye out on the site and how it improves.

Maybe they used to have all of them, but I only saw up to the ones I listed... Sorry, man.
