||- Exclusive and non-exclusive content of Latina TS models in solo and hardcore.
- Updates every two days.
- No DRM.
- Order shoots by date or alphabet.
- Site design is good, plenty of niches and model qualities to choose from.
- Videos include plenty of options. Quicktime: 500 X 281. Real media: 280 X 156. Mp4: 640 X 480. 3 diff WMV formats: (Low: 320 X 180, Med: 500 X 284, High: 1280 X 720; ~3,150 kbps). Older videos highest is 640 X 480, ~2,000 kbps.
- Extras include random drawings, information on clubs around the world that are TS friendly, agenda or gossip (kinda like a blog, no longer updated as of 10/13/2007), and escorts list.
- Message board with active webmaster, appears to take requests.
- Newest pics available in 1600 x 1600, 1200 x 1200, and 1024 x 102 with slide show. Older sets usually average 900 X 675. All available via zip with a non-intrusive watermark.

- Lower quality in movies from 05/14/2008 and 10/26/2007. Before that it is extremely low quality at 352 x 288.
- Lower quality in pics in earlier sets.
- Poor navigation for model list index and getting to the index. It's actually under 'Extras' but should be a main tab to click on. Model list index does not contain all content, one has to go to the 'all movies' section to get all the movies because they are not all in the index.
- Penty of 'Behind The Scenes' videos used as regular updates. Also, as of late, poor quality FLV (Flash) only videos of the webmasters private webcam video casts are included as regular updates.
- Sometimes only screencaps available for video scenes or vice versa.
- Models' info including stats, escort number, cock size, and location may have info on the model or not. Basically, it's a gamble and who knows how updated or correct escort numbers are.
||Latina Tranny is a TS model site operated and mostly shot by TS model, Nicole Montero (Nikki). It has been running for several years with the newer content containing exclusive only content while older content before roughly December 2007 include both exclusive and non-exclusive content. Lately, the site appears to have taken the turn in to becoming more of a solo model site of Nikki with some updates of her friends.
The videos on the site are great quality when it comes to how they look, at least from 05/14/2008. The are quite sharp and have great lighting. Nikki does a great job with the camera and gets quality shots most people want. Before that, only smaller sized videos with lower bitrates are available and sometimes only in parts which may or may not be shot by Nikki. As far as what is included in the content varies. Most of the content are solo shoots with the model stripping and masturbating. However, a huge negative with these solo shoots is the majority of these shoots stop before cumshots. Therefore, there is no real climax to the shoots and they tend to just end abruptly with no actual 'real' finish. I've always found this to be a large negative when shooting solo TS content. However, there are some great hardcore scenes which include Nikki with other models, men, and other TS models. I've found the scenes with Nikki and other TS models to be a bit less 'professional' in terms that the shoots usually include lots of dialogue (even interviews) and a bit more spontaneous sessions. The good thing is these scenes usually end with proper endings unlike most of the solo shoots.
The site stands out more as a photo shoot site. The are far more photo sets than videos. As of 08/18/2008 all pics can be available in the highest res at 1600. The shoots by Nikki are extremely well done. I will admit that she has a keen eye for photography and gets the shots that most TS fans want. This includes long shots mixed in with close ups and not a whole lot of repetitive shots that create huge sets with the same picture over n' over again. The settings tend to change, whether they are outdoors, in a studio, or being in a home. However, remember that not all these sets are exclusive and many are available at Shemale-Club around December 2007 and earlier.
Overall, the site has a lot to offer but fails to deliver in terms of exactly what many TS fans want in solo video shoots and quality updates. While it is great that the site updates every two days which is higher for a TS site, many of these updates include short BTS clips, interviews, or poor quality webcam shoots. Also, many photoshoots have no video. However, the site does include many positives that many TS sites do not include with Nikki being interactive with members and maybe even doing requests. Plus, the technical aspects such as video and photo quality are a huge plus. But, I just can't give a site a huge score when they are lacking what many want to see with TS content, the cumshot.
