Pros: - Very large archive of movies.
- Searching for movies or pornstars is very straightforward.
- Trial offers full access to the site. (3 days for $4.95)
- Picture sets available for most movies. I think they are the same photo galleries available on the DVDs.
Cons: - Buyer Beware 1: ALL MOVIES HAVE DRM!
- Buyer Beware 2: Most movies are available only in streaming flv format. Even at "full-screen" these streaming vids are of mediocre quality.
- Very limited number of movies are available for download & have DRM.
- Normal monthly price is very high for primarily streaming-only content.
- Navigation is not user-friendly.
- Photo galleries have no zip option and only show 8 thumbnails at a time. Lots of clicking "Next."
- "Bonus sites" are really ads.
Bottom Line: I really enjoy Red Light District movies. I thought that I would enjoy the site, too. The tour clearly states "Download Our Entire Archive!!!" However, the vast majority of the archive, particularly newest and oldest DVDs are only available as streaming videos. Additionally, the DVDs that are available for download are loaded with DRM. Unfortunately, the terms of service are so convoluted that I couldn't find a reference to DRM, even though I scanned through the entire ToS.

DRM alone is a deal-breaker. Combine that with the fact that most of the scenes are streaming only and I wouldn't have joined the site. On top of that, add false advertising claiming that you can download the entire archive of DVDs and I just had to keep dropping the score. 56 instead of 50 is because of the number of DVDs available for viewing.

I joined this site because of the full trial option and to see what movies were available online. I'm glad that I only wasted $5 instead of $30 for a full month's membership. This site should be avoided at all costs!

Jay G (65) Excellent review! Thanks for the warning.

I've been stung a few times by sites that promise downloading, but have DRM or lousy streaming-only of many or most vids. Both are irritatingly useless for real viewing pleasure.

Honestly, this is the first time that it has happened to me. I'm usually very careful to check the TBP review about streaming vids or DRM, but there were no reviews, TBP or PU, for this site. I guess that someone had to be first and bite the bullet.

Thanks for biting the bullet for the rest of us. Most of my mistakes were made in the 4 or 5 years before I found The Best Porn reviews. Now I wouldn't sign up for any site without checking PU/TBP. I've been online for quite awhile now and was a slow learner.

jd1961 (95) In my book, DRM sites get an automatic 20 points deducted from the score. Downloading means transferring it to my computer, and KEEPING it. DRM video is not downloadable IMO. These sites need to suffer in the pocketbook for this onerous practice. They need to ask themselves, "why is our membership down?". thanks for the appropriate low score!

forsanla (12) Hi, i've tried a trial membership....
What's a pitty for Red Light District!! They produce such good movies and have such an average website!

You can't donwnload all the videos... (exemple: Jayna Oso in 1 in the Pink 1 in the Stink #1 fantastic but made in 2003, allowing a download would be not extraordinary ^^, and Sasha Grey in Gang Bang #5, for me the quintessence of porn).
As you've said "the vast majority of the archive, particularly newest and oldest DVDs are only available as streaming videos"

And the videos you can download not always work well... (exemple: Jasmine Tame in Spit Whores, the video stop after 4mn and Tobi Pacific in Fresh Ripe & Ready no sound after 8mn)

5$ or 3 for a trial ok, 30$ or 23 per month?!! Sorry Wait and see.
