||I felt kind of obliged to write this review, since I wrote a previous one some years ago and the site has changed quite a lot since then. So I took advantage of the PU offer, and joined (it is not a big sacrifice, really :P)
And yes, the site has changed, and in most aspects it has improved: it offers the same old Vivid style movies (stylish, wel lit, glamorous, gorgeus big-titted girls...), in acceptable to good quality and with some improvements in the navigation and search options. Contrarily to what other users have said (probably referring to the old version of this site), the archive is quite big (I've calculated around 600 movies), with each movie splitted into scenes, all of them accesible individually.
Now, to the cons. In my experience, the worst thing about this site is the tremendous amount of time you waste trying to watch a single scene. Most of the time, the site charges up to a point, and then it stops. And I haven't found a way to avoid this, or to make the site work properly. It's really frustrating to search for a movie, and when you have it, not being able to watch it because the site won't load properly. And this happened to me a lot; almost all the time.
Another big fault for me is the limited ammount of search options the site offers: there is a search box where you can look for actresses and movie titles, but there is no alphabetical list of titles, there is a category filter but it's hard to understand and to use, and scene description is not clearly stated.
In summary, my experience with Vivid.com has been highly disappointing. I have been able to stream (not download, there is no download options) a bunch of scenes which, it's true, are not available elsewhere, but I've also lost a good deal of time clicking F5 and reinitializing my browser to try and access movies and scenes in the site. And that's just no way to enjoy porn.
I would say that those low ratings, in the range of 50s, are too harsh on a site that includes gorgeus girls and good movies, but I also wouldn't strongly recommend this site.
