||1920 x 1080 videos.
No sneaky checkmarked gotcha! boxes on the credit card page when initially signing up.
Website is pretty responsive while you're repeatedly logging back in.
Seymore Butts' site is included but not the focus of the review (only showing four videos with Shane, btw).
||It logs you out every ten minutes if you're downloading videos, and you have to enter captcha to get back in. It doesn't force you to log back in as frequently if you're only streaming the videos.
Download managers don't work. Let me rephrase: Queuing doesn't work, and if you try to download two videos at the same time one or both will usually fail. LOADS of 416 errors, and downloads don't resume where failed.
Downloads seem to fail 25%-40% of the time. Example: http://imgur.com/2hoHW5x
If you try to download two videos you are no longer able to view any pages on the website. Too many connections, I suppose.
Put simply, you can download whatever videos you're willing to start, restart, babysit, re-enter captcha, restart, etc.
Poor lighting and many washed-out scenes.
||This is pretty vanilla stuff and not worth the time and trouble for the too-few videos you're allowed to download.
If your focus is on streaming you may be more pleased with it, but there are still too few videos and too much trouble when sites like videobox exist.
*** Revised on the 8th. My initial review was too harsh, and I've taken the score from a 65 to a 69.
