Very customer friendly. I believe a lot of thought has gone into the way the home pages are presented, and appear to customers.
Excellent webmaster Marvin as network representative at PU.
Downloads are named, you don't have to do it yourself.
||Condoms used nearly all the time on "Oye Loca." If you hate condoms it makes the site worthless, and it's one of the biggest sites on the network.
Tats tats tats. Far too many tattoos. There are the usual breast jobs too, but tats are everywhere.
Smaller than the large networks.
Some sites are small, and/or not updating.
A LOT of advertising links/upsells, plus when you first log in for the day you always have to decline the "special offer" upsell before you can access the network.
6 simultaneous download limit.
Slower daytime speeds here in UK.
No choice of WMV for HD. HD videos are mp4.
||The impression I get of this network, is one that is run by people who want to have their satisfied customers keep coming back. For me the two biggest negatives resulted in my cancelling membership after only one month. I intend to come back when I have time to sift through and cherry pick material. The two negatives are tattoos and condoms.
Tats tats tats and more tats, tats everywhere. Nearly every clip I accessed seemed to have a model with a tattoo on some part of her body. I find that a big turn off. That combined with the presence of condoms on most of the Oye Loca scenes, making that site virtually redundant, meant that for me, a large part of the network was a no go area. It's a big shame because they are clearly trying very hard to be customer friendly.
Yes, tats everywhere, but they seem even more prevalent on Innocent High, where the girls look, how shall I put this.....more professional than on any of the other sites. Innocent? Yeah right, about as innocent as Charles Manson at a graduation party. I have this theory about the tattoos. Maybe the site operates in a similar way to the United States Postal Service or Royal Mail. Basically the girls have to be stamped before they can get through the doors. That would explain it all.
Each site has an individual appearance and style. Unlike other "networks" this one really is a collection of individual disparate sites with their own personality. "Oye Loca" has some beautiful little known Latin models. "She's New" goes for the amateurish approach, with young beautiful girls supposedly making their debuts, although many of the scenes are not boy girl hardcore. "Innocent High" has a lot of POV. Titty Attack caters for the fuller figure, and is one of my favourites, as is Her Freshman Year, and the unsung Team Skeet Extras. "Rub A Teen" is the only non exclusive material. Some sites are small and/or not updating. Below in "replies" is a list of sites on the network with scene counts, and last update (as of 24 January).
The home pages are generally good and navigation is easy. There are a number of download, streaming and browsing options. Streaming looks great, and is easy to use, with high medium and low options available. I have variable speeds here in the UK, being generally faster in the evening to night, and slower in the afternoon to early evening. There is a "default viewing option" where you can set your favourite way a scene is displayed, when a page is loaded. You can have Preview, Full Flash Movie, Best Of Movie, Third Clips, One Minute Clips, Pictures, Screencaps, Trailer, and there's an "add to favourites" option.
They really do seem to be making the place customer friendly, and Marvin is an excellent webmaster representative at PU. A lot of thought has gone into design and navigation. For instance, when hovering the mouse over a home page picture, you get a few screencap samplers, just enough and done in just the right way to give you an idea of the material. Unfortunately the one thing that overwhelmingly lets this side of things down, and clutters up the members' areas, is the huge amount of upsells and links. You even have to navigate an upsell when first logging in. You must decline the offer before being able to access the network. Apart from that, logging in is easy, and your password is stored across the network.
Lighting, photography, thoughtful angles, and high spec, means the material looks great. Their greatest strength is the quality of the videos, although the pics look good too. Team Skeet is similar to other sites in taking too many pics all looking the same, but the pics they have, do look good.
Generalising across the network I have come to the conclusion the models have slightly more body shape and ethnic diversity than some networks. There is a lack of anal, with most of the scenes being straight boy/girl, with some solo and lesbian. There is little abuse of models, hair pulling, insulting, ass slapping, or gagging. The male leads and cameramen tend to be low profile, thankfully. In tone I would say it's similar to 18 Eighteen/Score or Karups, a sort of light hardcore.
Newest update video download options are 1080 HD, 720 HD, HI mpg4, LOW mpg4, WMV, IPod. There appears to be a six simultaneous download limit. The HD downloads are mp4, Best WMV nowadays is 960x540 at 1500- 2500 kb/s, or 640x480 at 1500-2500 kbs. Older clips have lower spec. Pictures are mostly 1050x700, sometimes 1050x590. Screencaps mostly 720x405.
If you prefer WMV, they have changed their high spec videos from WMV to mp4. On the latest updates there is no longer a WMV high spec option, only a medium spec 960x540 or 640x480. That means a difference between1280x720 at 7000 kb/s and 960x540 at 1500-2500 kb/s or 640x480 at 1500-2500kb/s.
Overall a worthwhile membership, which I would recommend to any PU'er. A real network with character, and great material, which is customer friendly. I will be back.
