graymane (33) Absolutely ......
Many ,however, that I avoided would've been downloaded if I had a dicipherable softwear editing device.... And knew how to use it.
Otherwise, too much stuff to wade through grttin' to the good part.

luv lickn clit (23) I cringe when I see a photoset thats 800 megs or larger, but if I really like the model, I'll download it and maybe delete some of the photos out of it.

t9chome (0) Reminds me of a scene I wanted to DL on Evil Angel, American Anal Sluts w/ Amy Brooke & McKenzie Miles. It was over 6gb!! And that was a 720p! Between that and their common practice of delaying DL'ing posted scenes for up to 10 days calling them "World Premier" they truly live up to their namesake.

I set a limit for myself of 2gGB, anything over is just not practical unless amazing. I think there are maybe 5 files of porn that are over 2gb on my pc and thats it. The average is right around 1gb

bibo (15) I don't care about file sizes, because I'm in the lucky position to sit behind a pretty decent connection with flatrate and a bunch of external hdds to store what I don't delete right away. Some movies in my collection are as large as 16GB. Filesizes is never the problem, instable servers and no download resuming can be frustrating though.

messmer (137) No, because I have decent speed, no bandwidth restrictions and external hard drives are cheap.

Marcus (47) I've always been quite fussy and on my laptop, SD videos are normally OK for me. Anything up to 500mb I'm fine with, over 500mb I'm fussy with, and over 1gb It'd have to be a really special video for me.

gaypornolover (38) Rarely - but on one site the top-quality HD ones were so huge I downloaded one, compared it to next-down quality, and for the first time I went with the lower quality option as I just couldn't justify the space needed and the huge download times.

I don't think I've ever avoided an individual movie I wanted to see because of it though.

otoh (54) I have a pretty fast connection... but even with cheap storage, there's a finite limit as to how much space - logical and physical - I want to devote to porn. I'm currently at a site where some picture sets are >500Mb - I skip these!

pat362 (375) Since I do have a limit on how much I can download then I will sometime skip some files because they are just too big. Of course part of the reason is that I probably already have a similar scene or I'm not sure I will enjoy the video.

Drooler (220) It can be an issue with videos sometimes. I have to ask myself whether the 1980x size is going to be worth the space it consumes. I have more hard drive space now than I ever have before, but it's always finite and I don't like having excess that I could do without.

After all, I will run out eventually and buy another hard drive ...

hodayathink (18) No. Sometimes I'll delete and redownload a smaller version if I determine it's not worth the space, but I never straight out refuse to download the file.

RagingBuddhist (65) Never. Somewhere in my running around the Internet, I found a 20+ gig copy of Avatar. Yeah - 20+ gigs. I didn't hesitate. So a 2 or 30 gig file wouldn't be an issue at all.

turboshaft (24) To be honest, with the Internet connections I've had over the years, combined with a practice of avoiding slower sites, I can't say that I've actually avoided a download because it was too big.

Of course I have reviewed files later and realized I have a 1 GB (or larger) video that I only really like half of and can't easily keep the parts I like. I guess I'm stuck between preferring whole videos and skipping through all the useless striptease and uninformative/creepy interview BS.

exotics4me (463) I guess I would say I avoid a specific file based on its size, but that's usually because there is a smaller version available. Anything over 1 GB, I'm looking for a smaller version and if there isn't a smaller one, then I'm deciding if the scene is worth trading the space for.

tangub (155) I always avoid downloading the largest sized photo sets when there is a decent mid size option in the 2-3000px size range. In my recent subscription at Amour Angels I found many of the largest sized photo zips were well over 1GB which is way too much space for a photo set to take up imo.

Erlib (0) Yes. I might have the connection and hdd space, but I really don't need a ton of 3+ GB video files. Unless it's something that looks really good, of course.

lk2fireone (196) I don't understand file size. For years, the file size of photosets kept increasing. But lately, at least on Metart, the file size has been getting smaller. Maybe the site is using a better compression program for their photos. And I certainly wish more sites tried to reduce the file size for their videos and photosets, while still keeping the quality.

RustyJ (145) On EvilAngel I had to. Single scenes closer to 5GB were just too much. I'd like them to stay around 1GB but these days that's often not realistic. Then again, why do single scenes last closer to an hour?

marcdc1 (174) My collection has now grown so large I worry about space and organization. So if it's large and doesn't look stellar I'm likely to skip it.

"....skipping through all the useless striptease" ??? Please, please tell me the name of those sites, turboshaft? I would love some useless strip tease to look at. LOL.

Well, in my opinion, if an actress leaves something on for more than say 60 seconds it's too long. :-)

messmer (137) REPLY TO #25 - turboshaft :

I guessed that much, ts. :-) You still haven't told me where to go to get a fairly lengthy strip sequence and you were my last hope!! All the scenes I've seen lately haven't gone much longer than 60 seconds before full nudity. Oh, to be young! :-)

turboshaft (24) REPLY TO #26 - messmer :

Sorry, but pretty much everything I've seen would not rationally be classified as striptease. Hence, why I'm not a very good judge and start yelling at the screen "Take that stupid shirt off already!" before I'm about ready to shoot the TV Elvis-style.

slutty (111) All the time, much more than 1GB and I am pretty much not interested unless it is something I really really want.

Ambition (15) It's actually otherway-round. I don't download files, that are too small. I only download video content and I prefer high quality like 1080p HD. My internet connection is decent and I own a huge NAS to save my porn on.
