||-Large selection of the hardest mainstream hardcore DVD's there is from a good variety of some of the best known directors in the business
-HD updates now also available for download, on some scenes it's only 540p "Web HD" though
-Fast downloads with no limits. Works well with dl managers too up to four transfers at time
-Very reasonable price
-5397 scenes at the moment with multiple updates on weekdays
||-Searching this site is difficult
-New HD releases come in limited numbers, most of them are standard resolution
-Slow releases of complete films. Now that you see the scene release schedule for a title, it may stretch months into the future
-Some HD releases are held for weeks before being released for downloading. If you are worried about pirates, don't punish the paying customers!
-File size for HD scenes can be huge (fix was promised), over five gigabytes
-Regional pricing. No matter what they tell, all the sites could fix this if they wanted to
-This is THE Evil Angel site and yet only a part of releases seem to end up here
||It's subjective of course but I think Evil Angel is one of the greatest (if not the) studios in gonzo hardcore genre at the moment releasing DVD's. This site delivers a large amount of their releases categorized by directors which there are many and they are big names too. Rocco Siffredi, John Stagliano, Cristoph Clark just to name few. The content varies quite a lot based on the director but I dare say there is something for most of tastes with the backlog of over 5000 scenes. Evil Angel doesn't appear to really be a BluRay studio with only seven titles available at their online shop but the website has started with HD content already with some 720p and 1080p clips available and also 540p versions of some of their past DVD releases.
The site itself leaves room for improvement. While you can get the basic browsing and downloading done reasonably well, the search functionality just doesn't deliver. The tagging is incomplete with scenes missing many tags and actress names (actually they often tag male actors better) and many standard tags also missing. For example fetish side isn't really tagged too well with "fetish" tag returning few hundred mixed results, "leather" returning everything from PVC to leather to latex, no tag for BDSM which there is quite a lot of and so on. For me by far the most useful tag is "HD Movies" and rest of the searching I just do by browsing the DVD covers. Zipped scene sets would have also been a nice addition since every download link for a scene is behind another page and there might be 15-20 scenes to a film. They also have photos, not very good and not zipped but as this is a DVD site, I don't consider that an issue.
The release policy appears to be roughly two HD scenes per working day plus a number of non HD or backstage scenes on top of that. Sometimes they might add even few dozen scenes but those are shortish standard resolution ones. At least at the moment there is also some download delay thing going on where the new films downloads are witheld for a time, probably due to the fears of piracy but I think they are punishing the wrong guy there. Sometimes a whole film gets pushed out reasonably quickly but for some to be fully released you have to wait months. Also it's good to note that this site doesn't release nearly everything Evil Angel releases. If it's not here, I don't know where to look for it unless you want to buy DVD's which I doubt.
The films are all hardcore so if you after that, every update counts. Some girls only films and film series are also featured but they are far from soft. Personally I like especially the European videos on this site. If they push up their release rate of HD scenes from directors like Rocco Siffredi and Cristoph Clark, then the sites like DDF Prod and 21Sextury.com have a serious competitor here and also from other DVD sites from FameDollars.
The price is very good although Europeans end up paying extra for no good reason. The cons list is longer than the pros here but the cons are mostly minor nitpickings while the pros are very solid ones. This site could easily be a 95 point one for me if they focused on the new releases in HD quality. That'd make this one a top site with ones like 21Sextury in my books. Of course it's hard to compete against big networks with a large number of subsites giving a sort of guaranteed mix of updates every week when you are releasing complete films. Here you can have a really good week when they release something you really like or few weeks of that director you really hate.
