||Huge number of attractive models going back over a decade! I think its well over 2000 girls.
Updates include 3 photo sets a day (6 days a week), and 1 or 2 videos a day
Content appears to be exclusive (except for the feeds)
Photos and videos have just the right amount of explicitness for me (meaning pussy close ups and spreads, but nothing extreme like gaping or speculums). No pussy shy girls here!
Photo sets have a good variety of poses-front view, rear view, laying down, doggy
Flash player for videos works well-I can scan through a video very quickly to see if I want to download it.
Zip files for photo sets have unique names--no need to type in a name when downloading.
||My biggest gripe is the with the site layout and navigation. There doesn't seem to be a way to list ALL photo sets by date, or all models by date of first appearance. This makes it a little bit of work to view all the new material posted since my last membership there (you have to go through 5 different photo categories to do this).
The solo girl videos (which usually involve a quick strip and masturbation) are kind of hit or miss. Some girls give good performances, others seem a bit apprehensive. I would prefer for the stripping to be slower and more seductive. I don't see a lot of real girl cum here, again suggesting maybe the girls aren't really relaxed.
The camera guys shooting the videos tilt their cameras way too much!
The boy/girl hardcore vids have improved since the last time I was there, but I still rarely find any worth downloading.
The photo/video sets have too many chairs and sofas, and not enough beds. The furniture could be more upscale too.
||KarupsPC is primarily a solo girl photo/video site. Each model typically shoots 5 photo sets and 3 videos. The more popular girls have more than this. Some of the models do hardcore B/G videos (most do solo vids only), but recently these have averaged only about 1 a week. For example, in the last 3 months of 2012, there were 117 solo girl videos, 13 B/G hardcore videos, and 2 G/G lesbian videos. The hardcore videos have decreased in number from a couple of years ago (possibly due to the syphillis outbreak and new Russian porn law).
The models are generally attractive, although there are more "7s" and "8s" here than at some other sites like Met-Art and Femjoy. They do have their share of beautiful girls, and it seems like all of the most popular Euro girls have some material here.
The photo sets have zips and come in 3 resolutions: 1024p, 1500p, and 3000p (long dimension pixels). Older sets have only 1024 and 1500. I am not certain, but it appears that some (maybe all) of the photo sets are vid caps from the videos. There are never any flashes going off in the videos, and the photo set that corresponds to the videos doesn't seem to be noticeably different. Again, I am not sure about this. Having said that, the photo sets are well lit and in focus, and generally well done.
I noted above that there are very few if any "pussy shy" girls here. Just the right amount of explicitness for me. Also, some other things that you DON'T find here: pissing, speculums, huge dildos, public nudity, and I don't remember any anal action either (certainly not with dildos). I only found 1 video with "squirting". All of this is fine with me, as I am not into any of the above.
The 50 most recent photo sets and 33 most recent videos are on the home page. The homepage also has 2 buttons for the videos (Hardcore and Softcore). The photosets have 7 buttons/categories, and I really don't know why, as they are so similar. Those categories are Amateurs, Exotics, Girls with Toys, Hardcore, Models, Older Women, and Teens. I wish they would put them all on one main page organized by date, and then have the buttons. The search feature is OK, but needs more categories. It's a little work to get through all their content (of course they have a lot of content!).
The sets for the photos and videos are pretty basic, and as I mentioned above, they have too many chairs and sofas. Sometimes the models just don't look comfortable. They used to have some horrible painted sets with loud colors and painted bricks, but it appears that those are history. A little more variety would be nice. And more beds too.
The videos come in 3 resolutions: mobile, "medium", and HD. The HD is 720p (I don't remember any 1080p), but it still looks very good when full-screened on my 17" laptop monitor (my monitor is 1080p). I'm not sure what resolution the medium vids are, as I only download the HD. The videos come in MP4 and WMV formats. The flash player works very well, and is a big improvement from the last time I was there. The older videos (5 years or so old) are usually in 2 to 4 parts--I remember having to download and join those (ughhh). It would be nice if they could join the older ones for us.
The hardcore B/G videos are not a main feature of this site (at least, the ones done with their models). Apparently some of the members have requested more hardcore, so in response to this, they have several different "feeds". The main hardcore feed has a huge amount of material, but to me it is B and C grade stuff with B and C grade models. It also is not shot in the same style as their hardcore, so I really don't know why they bother. They also have video and photo feeds from Viv Thomas, but the videos are not HD (pity because many of those are good), and the photo sets don't have zips. They also have a webcam feed (which I didn't bother with) and several others including Sex TV, Paradise Feeds, and Whore Hunter. None of the feeds really interested me, and it would be nice if there was an option to join the site without these, as I am sure everyone is paying for them.
The Karups hardcore B/G videos were nothing special for me. In particular, the girls just don't look like they are really enjoying themselves. Another pet peeve, every freaking one that I've seen ends with a facial cumshot. Please Karups, add a little variety here! There has been some change in the videos--most are longer than I remember and less repetitive, but I still don't find many worth downloading. The rare girl/girl videos are better, with some on par with the better lesbian vid sites.
Bottom line: Despite all my nit picking, KarupsPC is a solid solo girl photo/video site. I have been a member there 5 times now in as many years, and always find a lot of good material to download when I go back. A first time member should do the 3 month membership, as 1 month is no way enough time to work through all of their content.
