Update on the download limit

(Khan - I didn't want to edit my earlier comment because that would make the replies seem strange but if you want to delete that earlier comment and replies I'll understand.)

I emailed New Sensations earlier today and asked them about the download limit and told them that I thought 2GB in 12 hours was unreasonably low for a site that offers HD scenes. Here's the reply I got:

Hi

We are not limiting the 2gb per 12hours. It is 6gigs in an hour. And if you are "blocked" it is for only an hour. Or if you let us know, we usually can fix it even faster, but it resets in an hour. We had to do that as we found abusers with download managers that were hurting the streaming and downloading from legit members. Let us know if you are seeing things differently and we will help you. In the beginning (after we switched the site to offer all the new formats and sizes) we had to watch and see what was happening.

Thanks
The NS Team

I can confirm that my experience with the site tonight is completely different than last night. Last night I was using a download manager to queue up scenes and I triggered the limit. I'm certain that the warning I got was 2Gb in 12 hours (because that's pretty specific) but I'll concede that I may have been mistaken.

Tonight I'm downloading again and I'm well over 2GB but I'm taking things slower so as not to hit the limit. So far I haven't been locked out.

It appears that the site's intention is to reduce site rips and large data transfers by download managers and I can live with that.

I think it's important to set the record straight. I apologize for any confusion and I'll update this as necessary in a review later.

bibo (13) Sorry, but that reply by NS is a load of nonsense. Looks like they're trying to talk their way out of this dodgy behaviour.

1. The quote I posted in my original comment is a copy/paste. They DID say 2 GB and 12 hour lockout.

2. People, who are using those horrible download managers to download more than 6GB content from sites are now considered "abusers", who are hurting the "legit" members (hurting them in what way exactly)? Welcome to the internet, welcome to 2014! I wonder how sites like Brazzers or RK are handling those abusers, considering the fact that some of their files are larger than 5GB. If the NS membership would be 12$, I wouldn't say a word, but NS comes at the usual full price range of 29$. That's quite a lot compared to similar sites, who are a LOT cheaper, have more content to offer and don't have a download limit.

3. There was no mentioning of the download limit, neither here on TBP, nor on the site (although I'm sure NS will point us to the crucial sentence, hidden somewhere behind a wall of text.)

Bottom line for me is:
If sites want to "protect" their content, it's their choice and that's fine. But this is a market. And being a customer, I want to be informed about what I get and what I don't get BEFORE I join, clearly and fairly. There are too many sites out there resorting to those little tricks or downright rip offs (see my pornxn comment).

I'll always be opposed to download limits but at least in this case they aren't as bad as we originally thought. But that's like being grateful for syphilis because it could have been AIDS instead. 6GB is too low, even for an hourly limit. I'm using a manager but not to queue scenes at NS. But I also have a fiber op connection that runs fast so I can easily hit 6GB in an hour. The strange thing is that I get the same warning that you wrote about (2GB in 12 hours) but the email said differently and the email is accurate about the 6GB. I can't speak for the hour cut-off because I haven't tried at just past an hour.

This is another case of a studio site falling short of what they could be. They have some excellent porn but they don't make it easily accessible.

One thing that we definitely don't disagree about is the need for the site to be more open about the limit. I did find the Terms of Service and I couldn't find anything in there about the limit.

I simply can't buy into this DL cap by site users.
Its like buying a Corvette and then told you can't drive it over 35 MPH.

Its like buying a can of soda and told you can only drink half the can today. Its like going out to dinner and buying steak and lobster but you can't eat both.

If a site offers X amount of videos then it must give access, to me its a sorta fraud to offer monthly charges when it would be impossible in a month with limits to access what you pay for . To me thats fraud.

I'm no fan of caps either, but one this low is a real pain in the ass. What's especially annoying is that they offer HD scenes that will reach the cap very quickly. Their justification for it is that it prevents some heavy users from hogging the bandwidth but if that happens at this site why isn't it an issue at other sites too? And isn't throttling a better solution for those rare times when there might be a lot of users on the site? I'll never be a fan of caps, but I can live with reasonable ones. This one isn't reasonable.

Thanks for weighing in on this.
