Huge amount of videos up.
Good variety of actresses.
HD videos look very good.
Various downloading options.
Sneaky sign-ups/cancelling process is questionable.
A number of the "sites" have few videos or stopped updating long ago.
Way too much pre-action scene intros.
Some scene duplication across sites.
Suspect they choke downloading speeds after a certain point.
First, let's get this out of the way; I clicked on what I thought was a preview video for XXX porn and suddenly I joined the site. Hmm. Strange. It would not have been bad save for the fact that I just paid $20 for about as many updates.
The cancellation process is also questionable; it makes it seem that I have to cancel from every site rather than the main one I joined. Beware.
Outside of that, the model variety is pretty good, and the scenes largely well-filmed. I noticed some of the newer 1500kbs scenes (for which 3000kbs scenes existed) look very rough; as if they were trying to duplicate the 3000kbs scene with the same basic dimension settings. This only appears on a minority, however, and all of the other (older) 1500kbs scenes looked good.
While disc space is becoming cheap, I can still do without the scene intros, with the bozos talking to the models and such (or just talking to the camera). I don't need video of some guy driving a van for 30 minutes, thank you. For many scenes, about half of the time is non-sex, which is way too long. Call me old-fashioned, but to me, a good scene is about 15 minutes long, and mostly action. I've got better things to do than to spend all day downloading the scenes then later editing out the stupidity. So, if you're joining this site, and I do recommend it, better have a fast connection and a John Holmes-sized hard drive, if you know what I mean. Were it not for this, my rating would certainly be higher.
There are a lot of pseudo-sites up, i.e., sites with 20-50 videos and are no longer updating. It would be better to roll these into other sites rather than trying to impress us with the number of sites.

- A mega-site that still manages to get specialties right
- Something for everyone
- 2-3 updates per day
- Broad spectrum of niches
- Many different types of models
- Logically laid out site
- Many complaints of misleading practices
- Links time out very quickly (2-3 minutes)
- Not all sites update
Bangbros seems to be the most polarizing of the mega sites that gets reviewed here, and it doesnít really have to be that way. The sites included with the basic network are large, many (but not all) are updating regularly and all offer some great porn. But working against BB is the perception of misleading signups and shady billing practices. It seems unreasonable to me that BB isnít aware of these concerns since the misleading signups are obviously a choice they made (and the billing flows from that) and if they are aware of the concerns, it baffles me why a site of this calibre would continue to do that.
BB really needs no introduction, but Iíll add a quick one in case someone has just discovered internet porn. BB is a large network of sites, which isnít unique, that offers sites catering to just about any niche a member could be interested in. Anal? Lesbian? Big breasts? Reality? Glory Holes? Theyíre all here. What sets BB apart from most other mega-sites is that (at least in all the niches I downloaded) they are done really well. So many other mega-sites have a feel of a low-cost buffet where your appetite will be sated but you wonít rave about the quality. In the niches I viewed I was pleasantly surprised to see that just because the network covers so many niches that they still seem to be able to understand what makes good porn within a specific niche. For example, I love both anal sites and glory hole sites and the BB sites Mr. Anal and Glory Hole Loads are among the best of each niche that Iíve seen. Each could easily be a stand-alone site and still have value. I have every reason to believe that the same thing applies to the niche sites that Iím not interested in.
The other great thing about BB is that they offer models from a range of ages, body types and ethnicities. The models also range from A-listers to relatively unknowns.
Iím going to break with my own convention of providing a lot of detail in a review because I donít want to risk misleading anyone. The reason for this is that I added an optional ďSuperPackĒ of sites that appears in the scenes available to me. To give the number of scenes available would include those and mislead someone who buys the basic membership. But donít let me mislead anyone in the other direction either: the basic membership includes thousands of scenes. For a first-timer or a recurring member there is real value here.
The site started adding HD videos in January 2009. Prior to that the videos were available in WMV (852x480, 1500kb/s), and MP4 (720x404, 1000kb/s and 852x480, 1500kb/s). The HD videos are in MP4 and come in at 1280X720 at 3000kb/s. Those arenít the best the industry has to offer, but they look good on both a monitor and a 50Ē TV.
The network is logically laid out and has a search function and also uses tags. I canít speak for the effectiveness of those, as Iíll explain.
Perhaps the biggest issue with the network is their apparent use of misleading upgrades. Many PU members have reported that all they have done is click on a thumbnail and ended up joining something that they didnít intend to join Ė and being billed for it. I have good reason to think that this is an accurate description of what can happen, so in the interests of providing a public service Iíll make four recommendations:
ē If you only subscribed to the main network, when you go to the main page ONLY click on the link to the ďBang Bros Pack.Ē Thatís what you bought and paid for. Clicking on any other link MAY cause you to join that site.
ē When youíre in the BB Pack that you bought, be extra careful about using the search function and tags as these MAY bring you scenes in a site outside your pack. Opening that scene MAY cause you to be signed up.
ē Keep your joining email Ė it will provide you a link to a site where you can cancel. (This worked for the main network for me, but I did need more effort to cancel the add-on even though I had the right link.)
ē If you donít want to be rebilled plan to cancel a bit earlier than usual in case you have problems. Your membership will still be active until the end of the subscription Ė at least it was for me. (I should also add that even though I had problems cancelling the add-on it was quick and effective.)
One other minor issue is that while download managers seem to be permitted, the short life of the links make it impossible to use a manager to queue downloads. Links die after 2-3 minutes, so even with a fast speed (I saw 11MB/s regularly) queuing more than two HD scenes wasnít worth it.
So would I recommend this site? Absolutely. They are among the best Ė and maybe the best Ė mega-site on the internet today. They offer something for all but the most extreme tastes, and what they offer is top-quality. The website is logically laid out and easy to use. My bottom line with BB is much like it would be for a lot of sexual activities: have fun, but go in with your eyes open and use protection.

-Hard to beat the content for assmen
-That content is massive, going back a decade
-Fast dl speeds
-Format Options, mp4[moble, 720x404, 852x480,1280x720], wmv [852x480]
-Photos avail in zip, but...
-Upon joining, I can see how some cases of trickery can occur. Especially if under the sites that aren't part of the core BBnet are added and billed immediately by clicking add site or the special offer images from home page.
-HD is only 1280x720. Fine for me since 1080 vids are too big for me, but sure some prefer best they can get.
-Photos avail in zip, but in some cases are as big or bigger than the highest rez video its from, some with over a 1000 pics @ near 1MB or over per.
-The really old videos are rough to look at these days. Old blocky, low bitrate compression. Some been re-encoded in their remaster section.
This is a popular site for good reason. If you like juicy butts, and sometimes breasts too, getting plowed by enhanced male talent, this is probably top of the list.
Only think really holding it back imo are the obvious billing issues and questionable upsells, but those are pretty major. Think they're mostly avoidable, but guess I'll find out. Not good though for someone willing to pay for their porn feeling like they have to walk on eggshells virtually across a site to avoid hidden charges or scared of later billing issues. I'd recommend, but be leery about where you click,

updates every day
decent variety of attractive women
impressive archive of content
Site is incredibly dishonest.I signed up for the bangbros network for 29.95.When I signed up I went through the standard procedure,like on every website, where you get to review then submit your purchase. I used the website for about a week, and never once during that time did I attempt to purchase a subscription to any other website,nor was there ever the standard procedure for doing so presented to me. Checking my bank account after about a week after my bangbros purchase, I saw I had 2 more charges from bangbros, for 29.95 and 14.95. I called bangbros support to find out what the additional charges were for and they told me they were for dancing bear and college rules. I explained to them I did not want or purchase either of those, to which the girl replied "maybe you didn't uncheck those before you joined" I told that i made sure nothing else was checked, and if in fact I had not unchecked anything why would my initial purchase only be 29.95, THEN I had 2 more charges afterwards
I had to threaten to contact the state attorney generals office about their fraudulent charges, then she offered to credit my account for the 2 sites I did not order. From what I can gather if you click on a girls profile on the bangbros website, and one of her video credits is for a website not in the bangbros network, and you click on that video, they automatically bill you for it without telling you or giving you an option. I have never encountered a problem like this on any other website, I am astounded by their dishonesty and thievery.
Bottom line is that it doesn't matter how good the content is on a website, if that same website steals your money, the content means nothing.
Trust means everything when you are making online purchases, bangbros is completely untrustworthy, shame on them
I will update my review when or if i actually get the refund they promised me.

+Their content is all exclsuif and they add 2-3 new scenes per day.
+They have over 6400 videos to choise from going as far bask as 2002 and they can all be downloaded as a single file.
+Videos since 2009 are offered in HD 1280x720.
+They have an excellent selection of mostly American performers with a good mix of body type and age group.
+They offer a photoset for each of their scenes which can be downloaded as a single zip file and resolution for the ones from 2011 to now is 1224x816.
+All the scenes are tagged with multiple keywords so that you can search for a particular word.
+They keep remastering some of their older videos.
-The site is still clutered with advertising for their other sites and offers for cam shows.
-You have to go through two pages of advertising to get to the main Bangbros page and one of these is sort of made to trick members into believing they have access to certain sites.
-About 1/4 of the first page is dedicated to useless crap and cam shows and worse it's at the top of the page so you have to scroll down to actually see the content you want.
-All the videos have multiple keywords but some of the words aren't correct for the content.
-They haven't fixed their search option so although you can search for keywords. The order in which the videos is presented is never chronological and no way to do that.
*It really sucks when a good site like Bangbros can't or won't clean up their site to make finding stuff easier. Here you have one of the really good porn sites who updates more often than most of the others and does a very decent job at shooting a wide variety of porn but where the site design is so annoying as to make each visit a pain rather than a pleasure. I'm just glad that I'm a returning member who already has most of the content he wants and is only looking for the last few months worth. The thought of having to find stuff through 11 years owrth would be a daunting task.
*They still manage to hire some top performers and they get them to do hardcore porn. They also seem to have a higher number of unknown girls as opposed to their counterpart in the US. That's both a good thing and a bad one because it's quite common for those girls to shoot porn one or two scenes for Bangbros and then disapear to never be seen again.
**The bottom line is that it's only 15$ and you will more than get your moneys worth. The only people that should avoid this site are those looking for softcore to midcore content because there is almost none.**
*I took a couple of points off from my last review because the clutter is starting to annoy and they really need to fix the search results.*

+ Daily Updates
+ 6,000 Videos
+ 43 Sites Included
+ Exclusive Content
+ Many Viewing/Download Options
- Repetitive Content
- Some Inactive Sites
- Limited Trial
BangBros is one of the most popular porn networks in the industry. Launched in 2001, it managed to stay on top with quality reality porn, gorgeous models and an expanding network of new sites. It features a huge library of exclusive updates with daily updates and new models every week.
With a network of 43 sites, you get 2 to 3 new scenes everyday. At this rate, the library is not only huge but keeps growing at a fast rate. There is a total of approximately 6,000 exclusive scenes featuring 2,000 models.
All the content is exclusive and is offered in both video and picture formats. You can stream or download each scene entirely or in sequential parts and there are multiple video quality formats you can choose from depending on your internet speed. The new HD scenes looks very good (1280x720) as well as the high quality large pictures included with each new HD update. Each update contains a photo set (125 to 1,000 photos) and a screencap set (300 to 1,500 screencaps).
There are many reality-based niches at your disposal. From straight amateur sex to lesbian orgies, POV blowjobs, latinas, ebonies big asses and castings, BangBros makes sure to satisfy your porn needs. With thousands of models and new ones featured every week, you have access to the most popular and best looking girls on the web. Most of them are young but mature fans also get their share.
The first con one might observes is the lack of diversity. Although there are 43 different sites, each one focusing on a specific niche or type of porn, the content gets somehow repetitive. There are very few fetish and hard sex scenes (bondages, DPs, gangbangs, orgies) and it is an area where the network could highly improve not only to offer more niches but also to attract a new category of viewers.
Despite a large network of sites, some of them seem inactive as they no longer update. Only the new sites and the most popular ones benefit from regular updates while the old ones (or less popular) collect dust.
There is no doubt that BangBros remains among the top porn websites even after all these years. With a growing network of new sites and daily fresh updates, everyone is well pleased and satisfied after joining in especially the reality porn lovers.
The monthly price is very cheap for what you get (when joining from www.TheBestPorn.com) but beware of the trial membership which is limited to a few scenes and automatically renew at $39.95 a month after 2 days (unless canceled).

+TONS of Content
+Something for pretty much everyone
+Regular updates...12-13 per week, the norm (not counting their extended membership stuff)
+Not only hot ladies, but also alot of girls you dont see elsewhere.
+Hi Definition videos and pictures (for more recent stuff)
+They regularly remaster old stuff.
+Nice price with discount
+Older content not remastered still has better quality than alot of older stuff you see on other sites.
-Content feels very cheap compared to other companies
-While there are alot of updates, several of the sites that they regularly update now are ones Im not into.
-Amateur girls are hit or miss. While some are very hot and hard to find, some are not into the scene at all and it hurts alot of the content.
-Fucking Cameramen never shut the fuck up.
-Many videos have technical issues...including incomplete files and out of sync audio.
-Site design and navigation is fairly straightforward, but below standards compared to other porn sites IMO.
-Zip files for picture sets are ridiculously huge. I expected big, but some are ridiculous. There are some sets that are a 1.5+ GBs. Ive seen sites with better picture quality and just as many pictures that are not even a gig. Thats ridiculus.
-They discontinued formerly great sites like MILF Lesssons and Brown Bunnies, among others.
-Prechecked sales...beware. Not a big deal anymore as Ive gotten used to them, but still worth noting.
ONE FINAL CON I COULDNT FIT IN THE BOX...
-For some dumbass fucking reason, BangBros decided to put scrolling watermarks at certain points in their newer videos. Now, in the middle of the action, suddenly text will scroll across the screen saying "BangBros Exclusive Content". WHAT A TOTAL FUCK UP! Seriously....this is the only place Ive seen that in the fucking members area. Its only thing to include it in preview videos, but no...full length videos in the members section. HUGE DOWN I needed to mention.
BangBros, IMO, has always been extremely overrated. Maybe its a preference thing, and I respect that. Not that they have bad content, but I just dont feel its as consistently good as other porn companies. Their scenes always feel extremely hit or miss for various reasons...some just feel very cheap in quality, some have girls that dont really wanna be there which KILLS a scene for me, and my god....the cameramen need to shut the fuck up. Reality Kings has improved in this area over the years, but BangBros has only gotten worse.
Would I recommend BangBros? Yes...for a month. Even if you dont love all their content, its very much worth a month or two, especially with the discount.
But its definitely not a site that I would sign up for long term. I hadnt been a member of BangBros for 4 years before signing up recently, because there was alot of older content I wanted. But their updates are still very hit or miss, so after you have the old stuff you want, its really a matter of how much you like their updates. Usually, there are 3 or 4 scenes a week I like, and sometimes not even that. Thats not enough compared to other companies...some of which have 8 or 9 I like.
Bottom line, it comes down to preference. I dont mind the whole "real reality" porn stuff, but the downside is it feels really cheap sometimes and the cameramen ruin some scenes with their blabbing.

-Multiple websites for one paid membership
-HD Quality Videos
-Some nice niche's
-Some beautiful women
-Nice search feature (especially when looking for a certain porn actress)
-Beware of cross checks that add other memberships when signing up for membership of website.
-Same Women across sites
-Some quality of HD not so good on older videos on certain sites.
-Membership is a little on the high side
Overall, i would say that this site is recommended for at least a visit once yearly or if eager enough every 6 months. Though, you will also have a hard time getting through all there video/content in a month as they do have plenty smut to go through.
*Newbie reviews and ratings don't count toward a site's overall score/rank until the user reaches the Rookie status level (5 points). This rule is needed to help prevent fake (or heavily biased) profiles and reviews.
I'm not really sure what happened, and I'm not blaming Bang Bros for this, I merely want to add this in case someone else has a similar issue or if someone might find this useful.
I joined the site a couple of weeks ago and within 20 minutes my credit card company called me. They were concerned that this was an unknown company charging my card. I told them everything was fine but they suggested putting a block on future charges. Two days later I go back to the site and my membership won't work. I check my credit card and see that I was only charged a small amount and assumed that I had somehow got a trial membership. No big deal.
But today I checked my credit card again and two weeks ago (a week or so after I initially joined) there was another Bang Bros charge. So I tried the membership again and it works.
I'm not concerned, yet, because this doesn't appear to be a billing problem.
Still, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no more issues.
I had a membership here recently which turned out to be only a trial (which I didn't think existed) so I only downloaded 50 or so scenes so this is based on those scenes only, but in about 20% of those there are audio problems. The problem is that the audio and video aren't synchronized. The scenes start out fine but by the end it appears that they're off my as much as a minute. This is with the WMV files and I can't say if it exists for other formats too. I'll admit that I only have a small sample of scenes available on this site, but a 20% problem with the ones I have can't be a mere coincidence. I joined the site to get a rare Tanner Mayes anal scene and it's one of the worst for audio problems that I downloaded.
Unsynchronized audio is a personal pet peeve of mine and enough to ensure I never rejoin the site.
This is one of those learn from my mistake posts. Bang Bros are now offering more than 10 different addon packs, but you can only add them for the special prices once you're inside the members area of Bang Bros. Their biller, while not real well known, has never given me a problem and the biller itself replies to any problems with 24 hours from my experience. I had signed up for Bang Bros then added the Super Pack. When I went to cancel, I canceled "Bang Bros" from the support page. That didn't fully work. It canceled the Super Pack, but not the Bang Bros membership. After I went back and looked, after an email to their biller, there was a second membership listed on my account, which was Bang Bros itself. I hadn't canceled it. They could do better with this by listing the Super Pack as Super Pack and not Bang Bros, but I could have clicked the drop down box to see two accounts too.
So if you add anything besides Bang Bros, be sure when canceling to use the drop down menu to see the other accounts so you can cancel them too. In a way, I felt like this is misleading, but in another way, I can see how maybe someone would just want to cancel the addons, but keep Bang Bros, so it's iffy as to how you take this practice.
I am very disappointed by Bang Bros, I am sorry but they like to charge your credit cards without your approval, they are very good at taking you money.
If you are logged through your members area, you have a cookie on your computer.
All the sites you may browse from their network (by typing directly the official URL, so outside of the members area), even if you just want to see the prices with their join now pages, will automatically detec this cookie, and if you click on the join now page without approval (I mean, from the homepage -> Join now), you won't have the choice and you will be automatically billed a free trial
this is deceiving practices I will never pay go back to this network! one click and you are charged... it's just amazing.
The URL that do automatical signup is:
even if you browse directly from the official URLS of the sites, ex you go through CFNMSHOW.COM, you click join now and *paf* you are added a subscription.
The company just refunded me the disputed charge without questions. At least they know what to do when problems happen with these cookied cross-sells...
So just be careful where you click with their websites...
Some of the content is good so it's a shame that they have those things in place...
If Bangbros don't watch themselves they'll end up tying Brazzers record for enhanced breasts. I can't count the updates I've had to ignore because of the bolt-on factor since I subscribed again this time. The subscription certainly won't be recurring .. that's how much I dislike these grotesque mutilations.
Another thing I have noticed about their latest updates, and that is that many scenes now start out with the model naked or almost naked and already in the middle of the action, while the picture sets show them starting out fully clothed. This is a major con for me because I always liked the gradual build up, as short as it was, in sites like Bangbros, Reality Kings and Brazzers. Why snip the fully clothed part and leave it on the cutting room floor when so many would enjoy a short strip.
Things must have changed at Bang Bros. Contrary to what's written above, to join costs $ 14.95 a month, however, after that, monthly renewal is at $ 24.95 US. If you hit the Join now button on the top right of the page you will be taken to another page that will list the subscription price for one month. Please be aware that you will not renew at this price. The renewal is, as mentioned above, $ 24.95. It's in the fine print below the red sign on button near the bottom.
Feb. 1, 2012
I am happy to see that Porn Users have adjusted their listing for the price of a monthly subscription to $ 14.95. I am even more pleased to see that if you follow right through to Bangbros. actual sign-up page that the $ 14.95 is now recurring and NOT one-time. It's in the fine print! :-)
Bang Bros won't stop trying to improve their site long enough for my comments to be still valid.
Not that I'm complaining. They seem to have completed their move to a completely new format, maybe the one I had seen several months ago was a beta version?
The new format is even more of an improvement. Now when you click on a scene every single option is right there on that scene's page. There's no need to click to go to pictures or screencaps, it's all together. Maybe they have a programmer who is as OCDC as I am and decided to make everything neatly laid out. You can from the scene's page, download the full scene in different formats, these do vary some from scene to scene but the general formats are high (WMV), medium (MP4), small (MP4) and Mobile. The newer scenes add an HD option as well.
These are all accessed from a drop-down menu when you click download. Over from the movie download link is a pictures drop down box that lets you either view or download the pictures and screencaps.
Now leave it alone lol! It's perfect like Rebecca Linares butt.
Also I know it has been asked if they still have the 30 or more parts for individual download, the answer is yes, but you have to click on "chapters" to get to those.
They also now offer an add-on package. This is similar to Videobox having the "channels". This add-on they offer includes these sites, Dancing Bear, College Rules, My GF and CFNM Show. These sites do pretty good as standalone sites, but you can now add them into your membership for $24.95. I don't know any other way to get those 4 sites for this price, but it does look a really good deal if you are interested in those sites.
I've noticed all the current reviews still make notice that there are so many options to watch/download the videos which I like. I did see on a recent review that you can still download in parts.
Question: Do they also still have the 1-minute downloads (where there are like 40 1-minute clips) or do you only have the option of 4 separate parts to a scene? I haven't been a member in over a year and loved the option to just download a 1-minute clip that was a few mbs instead of downloading Part 3 that was 100mb, etc.
I am normally a HD whore and download the highest quality versions of all scenes that I can get my hands on. This is usually simple, when a scene is marked HD it is, if not HD source, at least high quality. At BangBros, however, I am dumbfounded by the dishonest use of HD labeling.
Every scene in the network has a download labeled HD. While technically they are HD videos being 1280 x 720 or 1024 x 768 @ 3 MBPS the reality is very, very different. For all of the older scenes that were not filmed in HD or no HD source is available they have just taken the god awful 320 x 240 WMV files and re-encoded them to h264 HD resolution. As anyone who knows anything about video encoding will tell you, you put garbage in, you get garbage out. So what does this mean? Well, not only does the HD video look awful, but some scenes are up to 2GB in size! The "HD" video looks no better than downloading the WMV, which is 10 times smaller by the way, and watching it full screen which looks so bad it makes my eyes bleed. To make matters EVEN worse, there is no way of knowing what videos truly are HD and which videos are these hack job re-encodes.
I have seen dishonest practices but this really does take the piss. I have lost confidence in them as I cant download the scenes with confidence that the quality will be good without wasting massive amounts of bandwidth. With other networks like Porn Pros, Brazzers or Naughty America producing similar content without the HD lie I wont be keeping a membership here and I urge anyone that cares about quality to think twice before joining. I used to like BangBros, this is such a huge disappointment :(
