||Iím not normally a fan of mega-sites, but the discount on this one made it interesting and I wanted access to a few of the niche sites so it made sense to join. My overall impression is that it is a good site, but it over-promises and under-delivers. Not by much, and not enough for me to tell you to avoid it, but it does have some weaknesses.
It is a large network with a reported 107 sites on the covering the broadest range of fetishes Iíve ever encountered. The majority of the sites are b/g hardcore though there are scenes featuring BBWs, Black BBW, fucking machines, animated porn, food sex, midgets, MILFs, women over 60 and hairy women. There are also 13 sites featuring transsexuals. Interestingly, there are five sites of gay scenes too, which I donít think Iíve ever seen on a primarily straight network, but given the broad range of interests they cover these donít really seem out of place. If there could be a complaint about the diversity of sites it might be that itís trying to be too diverse. I joined to get access to some relatively mainstream porn with attractive young lasses doing nasty things. Each midget scene (no offence meant to those of less stature) means one less scene with a more mainstream interest. The one Ďnicheí missing is anal sex. There are anal scenes scattered around, but no anal site.
You can select a tab that tells you how many scenes are in each site but unless Iím missing something their counts seem wildly optimistic. Matrix Models, for example, boasts of 1726 scenes but I only see a little over 300. Thatís not bad, but to be off by a factor of six seems a bit odd. Other sites show the same optimism when giving stats on the number of scenes. It isnít that big a deal though because there is still a lot of material here.
Videos can be streamed in three qualities and in many cases in HD. I didnít use the streaming so I canít comment on it. Most videos can be downloaded in either wmv or MPEG4 format. MPEG4s are offered in several resolutions, ranging from iPod quality to HD (320x210, 540x500, 640x480 and 1280x720). I prefer wmv format and most videos are offered in that format at a decent, though not stellar, resolution. One issue I have is that like the number of scenes in each site, the resolutions reported for some wmv files are a bit optimistic. I checked this with several files to make sure I just didnít stumble on a lone file in a vast collection and found it repeatedly: the site says youíre downloading a 720x540 video but what youíre getting is 640x360 at 2100kb/s. That isnít a huge difference, but it is enough to be noticeable and it is misrepresenting the file. I donít download mp4 or MPEG4s usually and I didnít much of those here either but with the MPEGs that I did download they seemed to more accurately labeled for file size.
One beef I had was that a lot of the older videos with stars I like to collect were not available in wmv format. The vast majority of material is offered in wmv Ė itís mostly the stuff that was made a decade or more ago.
Pictures are also available, but they arenít available as zips so I didnít download any. They appeared to be mostly screencaps.
A lot of the content here is not exclusive. I found many scenes that I have from various well-known porn DVDs. If you have a huge collection of porn, particularly DVD porn, youíll likely find some overlap. ButÖ there is still a lot of material here but I donít think much of it is actually exclusive. If Iím wrong I hope someone corrects this in a comment.
Iím not saying that this is good or bad, but a lot of the scenes had a watermark from Porn.com. Iím not familiar with that site but Googling it makes me think itís a tube site. I donít know if that is true or not, but Massive Access is definitely a membership driven site. I have no idea what, if any, connection exists between the sites.
The site appears to updating with new scenes added daily. I see in his earlier review here that Robbi81 stated that he thought the dates of scenes were being manipulated to give the impression that the site was updating when it isnít. He didnít explain that comment, but I have no reason to believe that the site is dormant. Even if Iím wrong, the site is worth a membership given the price and size.
Speaking of price, neither TBP or PU mention a discounted price on the Massive Access page. Iím not sure if there is a discount if you join through the main network page but I joined through one of the specific sites, My Stepdaughter Ate My Ass (yes, Iím a pervert, but so are you!) and was offered a discount that gave me access to what appears to be everything. Even if it isnít everything, itís still a great value.
For the few flaws the network has Iíd still recommend it because at the TBP/PU discount itís a good value. The videos arenít exclusive and they resolutions arenít great, but there is a lot of interesting porn here.
