Reason: Changed review on the basis of negative trust rating left on my profile
||- Tia is very hot with athletic body, large (fake) boobs and a very pretty face
- Good mix of content - movies and pictures
- Lots of niches and fetishes catered for - B/G, G/G, blowjobs to anal with anything in between, gangbangs and orgies
- Fairly good update schedule for Tia, and also updates for other sites in the network including Asian Sex Club, Tera Lee, All Asians, Filipino Fuck etc
- Navigation is pretty good and you can sort updates in different orders (by date, title etc)
- Members can now rate updates and leave comments
||- Not all exclusive content which means quality is inconsistent, ranging from good quality photos to screengrabs from movies
- Video quality also varies, and you can't tell filesize until you download (it does have running time on the update though)
- Not much in the way of introduction for videos/updates, but not a big problem as you can view a Flash video before downloading
||This is a pretty large, comprehensive website, and caters for possibly the largest range of niches and fetishes that I know of from a solo website.
Tia Ling seems to try her hand at pretty much anything. There's inter-racial, blowjobs, footjobs, handjobs, masturbation, orgies, gang bangs (one of which she gets 10 facials), anal and also domination if that's your thing.
This is Tia's website so she appears in pretty much all updates, but there's a few guest stars, plus daily updates from the network her site is a member of. Honestly not many were particularly of interest to me as I'm generally a fan of solo sites, but if you like Asians, Filipinos etc, then this is obviously a huge selling point.
Tia is a constant in updates (obviously), but there's a lot of different male talent (and female talent too, of course). There are a few solo videos of Tia, also 'fan fucks' which frankly I'm always a bit cynical about, but it's obviously a different guy and adds to the variety. I know a lot of people don't like seeing the same guy in every video, so the fact there's a lot of guys at Tia's disposal is obviously a big plus point in that respect.
Navigation is pretty much as you'd expect. It has vastly improved since I was a member 4 months ago, and all content is downloadable. You can download WMV files (most seemed to be in the region of 100-500mb) and ZIPs of photos. I am normally only a member of one website at a time, and I cannot afford to stay a member of every website that doesn't let you save content, so it's really good this has been changed.
The updates are displayed as simple thumbnails with the title of the update, a 5-star rating which you can contribute to, and how long the video is/how many photos there are. Future updates also appear at the top of the page to give you an idea of what's to come.
If you hover over the thumbnail, it scrolls through 5-or-so different screenshots/images to give you an idea of what is in the update. The only problem I've found is that if the video is long, it only shows scenes from the first half of the video, so it doesn't necessarily give an accurate representation of what's in the video. But there's a Flash version of the video online, so no big issue.
When you click on the thumbnail you have the choice of playing a Flash version of the video or downloading a WMV (in the case of videos), or browse through thumbnails or downloading a ZIP (in the case of photos).
The Flash version of the video is good in that you can click anywhere on the timeline while it's loading and it will skip to that point. It's like Youtube in that you don't have to wait for the entire video to load before being able to skip to the middle and end to see what the video's like.
Most of the recent videos are excellent quality, with older videos being more inconsistent as I think some are from other websites that Tia's done shoots for.
Photo-wise, you can browse thumbnails, view them in a slideshow or download a zip. There are watermarks, but generally not too intrusive on the larger images, but obviously are proportionally larger on the poorer quality images.
Image-wise it's a mix. The proper photos are really good quality, very sharp and very clear. These are very good. Gallery size ranges from 40-200 photos.
But there are a fair few galleries comprising of screenshots - these range from adequate to poor in quality. I personally think updates like this could do with being separated from the main photo updates and maybe clumped with the actual video updates. It's not a huge issue to me as the good quality photos are there, and the good quality videos are there, it's just the screenshots kinda dilute the photo offerings somehow.
Other features include the ability to sort updates by Most Recent, Most Popular (as scored by members) and by Title Name. You can also add tags to updates, but I'm not sure if this means you can then view by tags.
There is a search box at the top where you can type in the name of an update etc, but also select the category (Lesbian, BJ etc), and the site (network-wide or Tia's site). Unfortunately leaving this blank and selecting 'Blowjobs' and 'Tia Ling' doesn't seem to display all Tia's blowjobs, but admittedly this could be a work in progress (hope it is, as it will really improve navigation).
Finally, there's a basic bio with her vital stats plus turn ons/offs, store (autographed photos of Tia etc), Tia's wishlist (from suitcases to lingerie!) and FAQs which touches on the essential things like how to cancel membership etc.
'Live Webcam Shows' is currently unclickable and coming soon, so hopefully that will be live soon (will update if it does become available).
Tia's website is really good. It has a huge mix of niches, lots of large videos and lots of photos. Navigation is FAR improved but could be slightly more refined here-and-there, plus I think keeping the poor quality screenshots separate would be another positive step to take. Well worth joining!
