+Lots of scenes
+Lots of models
+Lots of variety
+Easy to link to new models
-Search functionality is limited
-Loose definition of HD
-HD can be spotty
+This site has a ton of scenes. It represents multiple studios each with their own variants of hardcore. The only problem for those who care is that there does not appear to be a ton of exclusive content, as many of the scenes are from DVD's that are readily available.
There are also scenes for everyone. Scenes range from elegant, gentle lesbian sex to hard gangbang and bukkake videos. Most of the stuff falls in between but it definitely trends to the "harder" side of hardcore. One of the things that you see on this site that is not many others is the reverse gang bang if you are in to that sort of thing.
+This site has a ton of models as well. Most trend to the European look and body time, but there are plenty of American and other minorities of stars on the site. You will find no shortage of beautiful women willing to do all kinds of dirty deeds on this site.
+The site does a very good job linking similar models, so it can be easy to find new girls and/or similar scenes
-Search functionality is lacking. You only get to look for one tag in a scene search, which is frustrating if you want to be specific in your search. The model searches are much the same way. I actually had better success knowing models that I liked from other sites, looking them up directly, and then using the "similar scene/model" links at the bottom to find new starlets.
-In this site, they call 540p "Web HD" and tag them as HD videos. It can be very frustrating to see the HD tag and only have a 540p option.
-HD availability could be a mixed bag. Sometimes newer scenes that I would expect to be in 1080p would be in a lower HD (and sometimes not at all) while older scenes have HD options.
I feel that this is a very short review for me, but there is nothing complicated about this site. While this site is nothing special when it comes to searching and navigation, the scenes are very well produced and the models are hot. The beautiful girls and enjoyable sex definitely make this site worth the (discounted) price of admission.

Iíve really liked and highly recommended most (if likely all) of the Fame sites that Iíve reviewed and Fame Digital is no exception. This site offers a huge amount of high-quality porn for an amazing price.
For readers not familiar with any of the Fame sites, they offer DVD downloads from several major studios like Devilís Film, Silverstone and Evil Angel. The same studios are represented here and there is some overlap with other Fame sites but unless youíve recently been a member at several Fame sites youíre still going to find a lot of material here that wasnít on the other sites.
The main page is simple and effective: you have a choice of displaying the available scenes by individual scenes or by DVD. There is a drop-down menu listing all the DVDs on the site and ability to sort by the usual porn themes. You can also view by studio or by model. There are a lot of options for sorting the huge amount of material here, but there is no way to specifically search for anything: there is no search function available. While this is certainly a shortcoming, the many different options for sorting minimize the need to search. In most cases you can still find what you want but you may need to use a few more steps than with just an effective search function.
The site currently has over 3350 DVDs. My thought is that a lot of sites that try to please all tastes generally fail, but this site offers a wide variety of porn but still remains appealing. Youíll find all the usual porn niches here, like legal teens, anal, lesbian, etc., but youíll also find a pretty substantial collection of transsexual and bisexual material. Youíll also find rarer niches like pegging and Ďgrandmas.í Iím not into the niches that I just mentioned so I canít really give an opinion, but if youíre specifically looking for some of them this site has them, but they arenít the main attraction here. The site is by far a conventional site that just happens to have some different Ďspicesí if youíre so inclined. (And if youíre like me and not so inclined, there arenít enough of these niche DVDs that you feel cheated.) As for the more conventional porn, it runs the gamut from hard-hardcore (like Rocco Siffredi) to Ďartcoreí (from the Daring Film studio.) Regardless of what your tastes are all the DVDs I downloaded have one thing in common: the production values are second to none in the industry. Unlike other sites that seem to promote quantity over quality, Fame Digital doesnít rely on Ďfiller.í
One thing I especially liked about the site was the availability of older series and titles. Obviously the download options are fewer for these older scenes, but just having access to them is a big plus.
Like other Fame sites, there is no shortage of viewing options. Streaming is available in multiple resolutions, downloads are available in two formats (WMV and mp4) and in multiple resolutions. Obviously the resolution options are fewer with older material, but most of the newer DVDs offer the scenes in up to four WMV resolutions and up to 7(!!) mp4 resolutions Ė and thatís not counting separate downloads for mobile devices which offer a further number of resolutions. Many of the newer scenes offer both 720p and 1080p. Also on offer for newer scenes is 540p, which the site calls ďWeb HD.Ē This is an excellent option for people like me who watch most of their porn on a monitor. This is higher than the 480p that most sites offer (and is still offered here) without having to download a large 720p file. The 540p files come in at 960x540 at 1800kb/s and 30fps. The 720p come in at 1280x720 at 4800 and 30fps.
The site does offer photos but this is definitely NOT a photo site. The photos are shot during the scenes (but arenít screencaps) and look good, but the main (unforgivable) flaw is that there are no zips.
The site isnít perfect but the flaws are so insignificant that they donít detract from the value. Like all Fame sites, download managers are supported but the links time-out fairly quickly so it isnít possible to queue up a lot of files at once. Older titles often donít list any performers, and with many of the European titles (like Roccoís stuff) the female talent isnít always credited. There may be three girls in a scene but only one name is given. Minor, but still annoying.
The one flaw that I think really does detract from the site is that they frequently donít upload all the scenes from a DVD. In one case, for example, Tanner Mayes is the cover girl but her scene isnít available. (And Fame, I take that as a personal insult!)
The bottom line is that this is an exceptionally good value for the TBP/PU discounted price (and still good without it). This is a huge amount of high quality porn on a site with a simple but effective layout with multiple viewing and download options. I highly recommend joining. I know Iíll be back.

Had a little free time last week so I hopped onto this one via the $3, 3 day full trial through TBP. I didn't spend a lot of time here and I think the recent reviews and comments pretty much cover it. Just a few notes of my own:
I made a mistake by failing to notice the "no zips" warnings regarding the photos. Major Bummer as this definitely hurts the site since they offer up to 500 pics on some sets. Most photo sets across the network have nothing of value because they only have 8 to 40 pics but there is no way of knowing how my photos are in a set until you click on the scene you want to see. The internet Stone Age applications continue if you actually go into see the pics (they are good sized at roughly 1200 x 2000) and click on the photo thumbnails. If you click on 6 thumbnails on a page and make the pics full size that means 12 or more back page clicks to navigate back to the previous page. You get the idea here, ignore the pics.
Vids are all over the board. If it has an update stamp before 2010/2011 then it's not worth viewing as it means the scene was probably shot a long time ago and is grainy even at 480x640 resolution. The "540p" or "web hd" is something different that comes up on some recent vids but I found it to only be marginally better than standard resolution (I've never seen a camera with "540p resolution" settings so they're just doing some compressing of an hd file or enlarging a standard vid). The most recent vids have HD (probably several hundred across the network) and all are pretty much professionally done.
There is a fair amount of overlap with most vids appearing on at least 2 sites. The updates are not indicative of when a scene was filmed, I saw some updates within the last year that feature girls who left porn a long time ago. Navigation involves a lot of clicking and really needs to be upgraded. Be aware that the porn star directory is not complete on some sites. Really the best way to get around is to go to an individual site and start cruising the dvd scenes using their search tags (unfortunately you can only search one tag / category at a time).
There is a wide variety of porn to suit just about anyones taste with about 16,000 vids in total, although I'd say only about 1000 scenes have hd standards. I like the look and feel of the Devil's Film, Daring Film and Low Art films as they seem to be offering up more than just standard shoots, actually some artistic thought and production went into the scenes they shoot.
Like I said, I didn't spend much time here and since I'm more of a pic guy the lack of zips pretty much dampened my mood right off. I'd probably score this site in the 82-85 range if I did a full on review.
You do not get the same navigation choices if you enter a site through Fame Digital, than by going directly to the site.
For instance, if you enter a site through Fame Digital, and go to DVDs section, you can make use of a list of DVDs and a list of categories, but if you enter the site directly, and go to the DVDs section, you get a list of DVDs, a list of series, and a list of pornstars.
Like Jay's comment, Fame Digital and their other networks, use the "it's way over there on the right pre-checked cross-sale". Ran into a second problem when joining since I joined Sweet Sinner on the same day. My Fame Digital account wouldn't login. I clicked to reset the password. Then realized both networks use the same cancellation process which includes inputting your username and password. Well, I used the same username and password to join both. I guess the system didn't pick it up when created or it would have said username already in use. Instead, they sent me a new username and password with 3 numbers added to the front of the original username and 3 added to the password.
Also found the cancellation process a bit frustrating since it says, "If you do not receive a cancellation email, your cancellation might not be complete." I didn't even need to go look in my email to know I didn't receive it. But I did go look and sure enough, no cancellation email for either. Went back and did the cancellation process again, my account was still showing up, cancelled again, no cancellation email. Somewhere in here, I was getting pissed off. I ended up waiting for a few days since I remembered the delay before their system noticed the duplicate username. Sure enough, 2 days later, I received the cancellation confirmation email.
I thought this was worth mentioning since the site is only $9.95 the first month, $29.95 for the second month. If you were wait until the last minute to cancel, it's very possible that they could charge you for the recur and say their system hadn't processed your cancellation request. Really good network overall, but that out of place cross-sale combined with the slow cancellation request process does at least make me feel like others should be warned. That's what that out of the way cross-sale does to your credibility.
Fame Digital is an excellent value for the $9.95/mo Porn Users discounts. But BE CAREFUL signing up.
After going through two screens of inputting data, you arrive at the screen where the large box that covers the left side and middle of the page has you put in your credit card information.
Here's the clever trick.
For most of us who read from left to right and down the page, our eye will go down the box inputing the credit card info and go straight down the page arriving at the "Click here to purchase" box.
If we are in a hurry to get to the tons of porn inside at this great price, we might quickly click the purchase box without ever realizing that on the upper right hand corner of the page to the right of the large box in fairly small print is a pre-checked box that says, " Sign me up for a 3 days trial membership to Pornaccess for 1.95 usd. After 3 days, membership renews automatically at 29.95 usd every month. The charge will appear under CHP-payffbill.com."
If we click too soon (as I almost did) without reading the WHOLE PAGE, we will have signed up for Pornaccess at $29.95 a month without even realizing it until the bill arrives.
Please note my new forum thread (8/14/2011) about credit card security for unwanted purchases. It might save you money if you make a mistake like this or someone tries to fraudulently use your card on-line.
I joined this site today.
The down speed is very slow. Most of all, the connection speed decrease while downloading, so that the dwn manager stop the download; if you pause the dwn when the speed is extremely slow you can' resume the file !
I think that it depend on controls on your access rights...or so on.
At the end: you can't manage the download with manager (cause it stops after two or three files) and the speed is very very slow, so that you transfer on your PC about a file (400 Mb)every 20 min. !!
Since this network has been reviewed quite a few times recently, I'll just post a comment with some thoughts about the network.
If I were to review it the score would be somewhere around 85, give or take a few a points.
The major pluses for me are the solo sites for Silvia Saint and Tera Patrick. There are even some hardcore scenes of Tera without her ex-husband Evan Seinfeld/Spyder Jones. Those two sites alone made the network worth joining.
The Silverstone DVD site also adds value since it seems to have most of the Silverstone DVDs I downloaded years ago at Brain Pass, except these are full scenes. Two that stand out there are the boy/girl scenes of Eve Angel and Sophie Moone. The Eve Angel one in particular as I had downloaded a full scene of it from another site, may have been Videbox, that had one section of the scene removed. This is the first full scene of it I've seen and the Sophie one had previously been in 3 parts is now in full scene.
There are some negatives though. My first thought was that this is a re-branded Brain Pass Lite. Not that that is a really bad thing since Brain Pass was one of the original network sites and generally scored around 90. The video quality across the network is average, similar to Videobox or other DVD sites and what screencaps/photos I have found aren't downloadable in zips.
Making it another DVD site. The photo part probably wouldn't have been that big of a deal if not for the Tera solo site as you just can't find a lot of photos of Tera, they have some, but I gave up on the right click, save as, repeat a long time ago.
Back on the positives, lots of niche content, I've always liked the series If You Wanna Fuck My Daughter, You Have to Fuck Me. With a guy usually starting with a blowjob from the younger model while an older model supposed to be her mom catches them and joins in. They do a pretty good job of finding almost believable mother/daughter pairs.
Navigation isn't too bad either. They at least have a DVD series search that lets you focus on the series' you like best. Search by model is a pain since some scenes don't have the model's name and other times, a scene with the model's name just isn't listed on their page.
The price, Tera, Silvia, full scene Silverstone, saves it though. Is a nice fill-in site to join while deciding on other sites to join with some fairly rare content especially on the Silverstone site.
Just a quick word of warning. The HD content in this network is only streamable. While it looks very good, you might end up lookin at the buffering screen a lot. They were not exactly forthcoming about this fact before you paid.
Hope they change this and they might have a very long time subsriber in me.
