||It's some time since I visited a Viv Thomas site. I recall that on my previous visit there was only streaming video available, but I might be mistaken.
Anyway, Viv Thomas is a site bursting with content and quality. Viv's been in the game a long time and knows how to shoot a beauty in a variety of poses and scenes. Earlier hardcore scenes are bit poorly staged, but later stuff is very good.
The videos are generally nicely composed, all the girls give out; no tentative amateurs here. That said, the more recent content is getting a bit stale and there's an impression that Viv or the webmaster is going through the motions.
All of the videos are culled from DVD releases which slightly detracts from exclusivity. But, few complaints about the content.
The search facility is minimal - chose from video or photo; solo, girl/girl, hardcore; or by model. It could be a lot better. Why do so many sites fall down on this point? It isn't that difficult so long as content is well tagged. ('Only' sites, IMHO, do this very well.)
Interaction is non-existent. You can rate content, but there's no indication how many users actually vote: probably very few.
Updates were regular though there's not a huge amount of content being added each week - about 1/2 vids and 7 photo sets. And, as pointed out above, the newer content is getting stale.
I had no technical issues. Photos are an okay size though I'm sure most users would prefer something crisper than 250 dpi. Videos come as Windows Media only. Streaming is available. Download speeds were fine, which for me means slow given the craptastulic speeds available here.
I spent a couple of months as a member. That's a compliment in its own right.
Overall, a lot of positives; very good content a few minor grumbles.
I'm sticking to a 90, but there's question mark about future content. That said, there is enough on the site right now to merit a month's investment.
