Pros: -Wide variety of content of different genres, time periods, and studios.
-Downloadable content with various choices of file-format (plus no DRM, always a good thing when an adult site treats you like an adult.)
-Streaming available
-Good download speeds
-Many different fetishes
-Well integrated search engine, with the option to mark scenes/movies for later.
-Extra channels available
-Lots of updates
Cons: -Movies are a bit homogeneous (i.e. most movies and scenes are one-on-one, straight, with the same basic format and style.)
-User feedback tied to rating system (see Bottom Line)
-Extra channels cost extra cash-equivalent $ to the initial subscription cost
-Movie tags do not include performers
Bottom Line: Overall, this is one of the best sites I've seen in a long time. There's a lot of variety with many different options about how to watch. You can download at decent speeds, you can stream directly, or you can simply mark the movie as a favorite to watch later. Given the variety and sheer amount of porn here, I guarantee that you'll spend the first few days just selecting stuff you want to watch; there is a lot of it.

The bad things are really minor in my opinion. The biggest complaint is that, regardless of the variety, most of the porn on this site is very much the same. For example, lesbian porn, ebony porn, and some other "mainstream tastes" are a little underrepresented; it's mostly Asian or Caucasian-straight sex. That being said, there's still plenty to choose from if you like lesbians or interracial sex, or whatever...just not as much.

In addition, the user rating system is problematic. Given the tremendous variation in taste among the sites users, I can't help but feel there could be a better system. Here's an example: when you enter a search for movies, each movie has a "star-rating" (one star, two stars, three, etc.) However, because there's such a large number of subscribers, all with different tastes, and many who are very vocal about how much they hate this or that type of porn, just about every movie, scene, and porn star winds up with a three-star rating once the movie's been up for a couple of hours. A lot of very good porn sits in the middle of their rating system because of this.

Overall, however, these complaints are minor: I would hope for more lesbian updates, for example, but I can't complain with the number they have. If you join, don't take the movie ratings too seriously; thanks to streaming you can always decide for yourself if you like it before you download. The other channels are there, but they clearly label which movies are in what channel, so you won't have to live with ads for Vivid or Evil Angel every ten minutes.

slutty (111) Nice review Tobey666, although personally I think their new search engine is awful. Quite glitchy, so often it has no results for stars I know they have.

rearadmiral (328) Great review. I'm with you on the site being a bit bland. My take is that they take quantity over quality. But they're still probably the best DVD site on the net.

messmer (137) Good and accurate review, Tobey. It is my view that they should have never made it possible to comment on their DVDs or Scenes because there is such a strong and negative reaction to any update that is out of the ordinary that the site has become very bland indeed as VB tries to mollify the complainers. Most niche material (anything outside mainstream) is sadly under represented now, and old!

Monahan (42) REPLY TO #1 - slutty :

This has been a serious problem for years and has only gotten worse. Although it isn't perfect, I find that one way to locate a specific model is to find a video she's in then click on her name in the scene list.

Typing Gianna Michaels in the search box has yielded no results on occasion and a ton of results otehr times. By finding a video with Gianna in it and clicking on her name I usually get much better results,

But the major frustrations are where they misidentify a babe, or just misspell the name.

AFAIC this site loses at least 5 points for that failure alone. With the money they make they should at least make a small effort to fix the horrible search function.

slutty (111) REPLY TO #4 - Monahan :

I agree, I have done the same thing, but it sort of annoying to go between IAFD or something and VB when they could just add a decent search function. They also seem to often have some comically incorrect model photos. I get the feeling the just don't care, their membership is probably very high, and site functionality and design improvements probably wouldn't make it any higher.
