||- When you join through TBP/PU you get full access to the entire site
- Huge archive of material
- Large volume of DVD porn
- Large volume of semi-exclusive stuff
- A lot less overlap with other DVD sites that you might expect
- Wide range of genres covered
- Decent collection of 1990s porn
- Good download speeds (not extremely fast, but slightly better than average)
- Excellent customer service
- new scenes added daily
||- Navigation can be confusing
- Search function doesnít work well
- Many DVD scenes are listed under a created title that can be confusing (instead of listing it as Taylor Rain in Taylor Rain Gets Fucked in the Ass Volume 74, the scene might be listed as ďhot teen brunette fucked in the ass.)
- Download limit of 100 files per day (which for most people isnít too bad, but some of the older scenes are broken down into smaller files so that might cause more of a problem
- No HD options on even the newer stuff
- Some of the exclusive sites arenít updating (I canít and wonít fault PSN for this since the most likely cause is that the model has left the business)
||In the past when Iíve had friends ask me how they can turf their collection of 1980s Hustler mags and join the new world of internet porn, I steered them to Videobox. Iíll still do that, but Iíll also tell them to get a membership at PornStar Network too. This is a great site with access to a great mix of DVD porn and some seemingly exclusive stuff too. Many of the best models from Quebec are here. (The site is run out of Quebec, so that makes sense.)
The site also features access to over 130 porn studios, some major, some smaller. Some studios have almost 600 DVDs here. The smaller ones less. What surprised me was that there was not as much overlap with Videobox as I expected. Even in the studios that both have, there were titles here that I couldnít get elsewhere.
One factor that could have been a serious negative has been turned into a positive and is a reward for those of us who hang out at TBP/PU. The membership for those who stumble in from the open web is tiered: your basic membership excludes access to ďMovieZĒ files that make up about 50% of what is on the site. That sucks, unless you join through TBP/PU. Doing so gives you full access to the entire site, and there is a lot of material here.
All the extra material that you get is accessed through PSN but it is all watermarked as VideosZ. I canít say for sure that PSN gets you access to all of VideosZ stuff, but it must be close. If youíre considering a VideosZ membership this might be the better value.
Many of the files have some options for download, though the premium stuff through MovieZ is only available as AVI files.
Download speeds average about 650MB/sec, though that can get higher on occasion. One problem I encountered several times was that while download speeds remained the same, the navigation speed dropped off to the point where it was frustrating to use. That didnít happen often, but it was annoying when it did.
Pictures are available on most of the exclusive sites, but I donít download those so I donít have a lot of detail. Zips are available.
Search and navigation functions arenít up to standard, but once you figure it out you can muck about. Sometimes DVD scenes can be catalogued using a description that makes it harder to find if youíre looking for a star or a title.
This probably isnít relevant now, but when I joined they were in the process of giving PU members full access and I was missed somehow. The customer service was excellent and fast. (Two thumbs up to the TBP staff for their help with this too!)
The bottom line is that not only will I recommend this site to porn buddies, I already have. The video quality and navigation are about industry standard, but the sheer volume of porn here makes this an excellent value whether youíre just starting out or whether (like me) you have enough titles to rival the best porn store in the country. To top it off, the material is a good mix of DVD and more exclusive.
