||- Another site in the ATK line of sites, do not take the score as the deadset score. There will be an add +5 or -5 at the end of bottom line.
- As with the other ATK sites there is a lot of content, newer videos are HD, pictures are still the big draw here and are zipped, will explain sizes in BL.
- Really good download speeds, actually reached speeds I hadn't reached before.
- While there is a theme here, "petite" most models in the 18-24 range fit the petite group, so there are a lot of models.
- Going to go out on a limb and will further in BL when I say this site is like joining a best of ATK, since you get content from all their sites except Archives, as long as the model is petite.
- Navigation is pretty basic and easy as long as it's working.
- I couldn't tell you the update schedule since it seems to vary, but there does seem to be daily multiple updates, will further in BL.
||- To me there are two big cons with this site, one will be completely subjective, the other will be more based on your experience with these sites. They are:
#1 Programming nightmare, missing thumbnails by the dozen for the first 3 weeks of my membership. I will give them credit because it looks like they fixed it. There are still other problems, I've seen videos with parse link errors, no clue what that is, just know it means I can't download the video. I have videos that are corrupted and had a few zips that were corrupted too.
#2 Exclusivity. As a collector, exclusivity is one of the most important things to me. There is a high percentage of models here who have no content exclusive to this site. It does however come from one of the ATK sites. That's why this is subjective based on your experience. I joined ATK Exotics in December/January, ATK Premium in January/February, ATK Galleria in February/March and ATK Petites in March/April. I have a lot of Petites content already.
||I'll jump right in where the cons left off since I ran out of characters.
Though I numbered it as #2 con, my biggest con was the amount of overlapping content here on ATK Petites. If I hadn't been to the other ATK sites, I would probably be rating this site in the 90s, but I have, estimating, 60% of the content Petites has that I would want from my memberships to the other ATK sites. This is straightforward enough by them in the videos where you will see ATK Premium watermarks on videos, ATK Galleria, ATK Exotics, etc...
It's not straightforward when I join though. The preview lets me see all the models and # of photos, # of photosets, # of videos. It doesn't tell me that I may already have 50-100% of those from their other sites. I have complained in the past about DDF doing this, so it's only fair that I stay consistent and complain here as well.
It's not to say this site is a ripoff or isn't good. As it is, I give it an 85 because there is a good amount of exclusive content here. The score would have been a little lower if the programming problems hadn't at least shown some improvement, which they did a few days after I posted the comment about the missing thumbnails.
Here is a very small example of how exclusive the content is to this site. From March 25th-March 28th, there have been this many updates.
32 photo sets
Those are staggering numbers. That's 48 combined videos and picture sets in 4 days, or 12 per day.
8 of those sets are exclusive to this site, that's pictures and videos. So, 8 of 48 are exclusive to this site. That's roughly 16% exclusive. Having had memberships to 3 of their other sites, it means I have most of this content.
The update schedule is impossible to list because it changes daily, one day they had 12 photosets, another day they had 5 photosets and 6 videos.
Okay, enough bitching. ATK sites are fun sites. You're not going to find much if any airbrushing in their photos, you're going to see newer models and you'll also find old sets of current hardcore stars doing innocent photosets as a newcomers. I do get annoyed by the hairy sets and the even worse, "scary hairy" as they have them tagged, but overall, the girls range from cute to very pretty. It's not close to glam. Nearly all sets start in very normal clothes from jeans, shorts, skirts with some lingerie mixed in.
The newer picture sets have 3 zip sizes, largest is 2000x3000 resolution and vice versa. Petites can be a little confusing here since some of the newer sets from their other sites are not as high resolution, but most of the newer sets are the above number. They do have a custom zip feature that works when I have tried it.
This is an in-between one. The videos are very hit/miss. Most of the girl/girl videos aren't very good. The solo videos are the best ones on the site and usually these are worth a download. The boy/girl videos are borderline poor. I'm not talking about technical quality either. They are poor in the sense that you don't get a believable feeling from the scenes, it's very clinical even. I had the same feeling about Nubiles boy/girl videos too so ATK shouldn't take it too personally. I do get the feeling that a lot of these girls are not comfortable on video, just like I get on Nubiles videos, if they're not comfortable, I would rather see more photosets of them because the photos are really good.
Technical quality on the newer videos is good, at least a year, maybe two years of HD videos, but I really think if you're here for the videos, you're going to be disappointed.
This was my first time as a member on Petites or I would have known that most of the content comes from the other ATK sites. I do think the ATK sites have made big positive strides in their site design, navigation, search options and they continue to get tons of models.
My advice is if you prefer one of the niches like hairy, exotic, to try one of those if you're just starting out with these sites, but if you want a really good overview of all their niches, Petites would be a very good place to start. If you've been on their other sites in the last few months, I can't even recommend Petites because you're going to see a lot of content you have already seen.
As a new, non-biased towards genres, member, I would recommend this site as the one to join. It's like buying a greatest hits album by a band you're new to.
If you're new to the ATK sites or haven't been to them in the last year or two, add 5 to the score for a 90. If you are not new to the sites and have been on the other ATK sites recently, take 5 points off for an 80.
