UPDATE 5/9/2012: I lowered the score once again and I take back what I said about joining for a month. At this point, its hardly even worth that. Not because of content or updates because as mentioned, they are pretty good. Its the overall fuckin shittiness of how the site is run...from the videos to the site navigation. Hustler is a huge name in porn and you would expect something better, but you dont really get it
The main reason I lowered the score was because over the last few days (my subscription ended today) alot of the videos I downloaded went bad...either they lost sound or they would stop playing mid way through. And I seriously doubt the issue is on my end because I havent had issues with any other videos from other places.
UPDATED Bottom line: It may still be worth A month, but do so with caution. I will not be joining this site ever again. Better ways to spend money that on a site ran with such little care.
This is a hard site to grade, because some of my cons may not be cons to everyone. BY FAR, the biggest issue with this site is the fact that so many scenes are either mislabled or they dont have the right scenes uploaded. They have each movie divided into scenes. There were several movies I checked out where every scene on that movie was the same...meaning they accidentally (I think anyway) uploaded the same scene from a particular movie. That pissed me off because there were scenes I wanted and couldnt get for that reason.
This issue alone knocked 10 points off for me.
And while there is customer service, there should be somewhere on the video pages where you can report a problem. Im not going to email tech support with every issue I found with the videos.
Beyond that, there are only minor gripes. Hustler has a good lineup of movies and scenes, especially for guys who like teens and 20 somethings.
There is alot to like and they do alot well, but there are issues with the setup of the site that are really annoying. They even just changed it up and I thought they may have improved things, but while the site now looks sleeker, the navigation is still just as bad if not worse for movies and scenes. Not that you cant find what you are looking for, but its poorly done IMO. The search engine is pretty crappy too. I did searches for certain porn stars and they never showed up in the search, even though I knew they had scenes on the site.
Bottom line: This site is definitely worth a month at least, especially if you like teens and 20 somethings. But I personally wont be staying longer than a month. The original updates just arent there enough and the mislabled/wrong upload thing annoys the fuckin shit out of me.

I just reviewed the site, and instead of changing the score, Ill just say it here. TONS of videos I downloaded are now not working properly, even when I try to play them in different media players. I kind of think Hustler did this on purpose...or maybe they are just stupid and fucking lazy.
Either way, be extremely cautious. If you are looking to stream their vidoes, it may be worth joining, but there are other sites you can do that on. If you are looking to download, then youve been warned. Id personally suggest alternative means of getting their content.
Borderline scam IMO. Content may be good but everything else is meh or worse.
I am very disappointed with this site.
Without going on a lengthy tirade I will list some of the reasons why I find this site to be a major disappointment.
The videos here are of the worst quality I have ever seen.
Pixelation on the "HD" videos is so pronounced they are
virtually unwatchable. Have you ever seen the "mosaics" in
Japanese porn that are used to cover the genitals? Imagine
if those mosaics were enlarged to cover major portions of the
action! Thats what it's like viewing a video from Hustler.com
2) Download Speeds
Download speeds were extremely slow. At times less than
100kb/sec. I cannot live with that.
3) Picture Count/Quality
The amount of pictures available on this site is very
disappointing. On some the picture "sets" there were no more
than 5 or 6 images available. Added to the disappointed is
the piss poor quality of the images. The images are dull,
lack detail and sharpness, and the colors are washed out.
In short, the images are nothing like the images in Hustler
magazine that we have known and loved for years.
Maybe i'm stupid, but it's difficult to understand why a
corporation such as Hustler, that has been a pioneer, an
industry innovator, would produce such poor quality porn.
I just dont understand it.
I cancelled my subcription to this site and I cannot
recommend it to anyone else.
Although this site has regional pricing in Ä/$ depending on where you're surfing from, I noticed it's not too strongly enforced. Joining through some of their so called subsites sometimes gives you USD prices for exactly the same deal. For example via Hustler's Taboo site I was given subscription options in USD and while I still couldn't get those PU special prices, the three month package is quite reasonably priced if you are into this kind of stuff.
Just wanted to point out that while their newer videos are getting better quality from a technical standpoint, it appears as though they have some encoding problems as there are many more artifacts and glitches in the videos than you typically see at that bitrate.
It indeed appears that the TBP pricing is only available for US residents which makes the monthly subscription quite expensive.
If someone is member, I'd like to know few things about site:
Is it mostly DVD's and scenes from them or do they focus on single HD scenes like many other networks (my preference)?
How is Hustler's Taboo? I saw some scenes years ago and they were more like HouseOfTaboo in style but now it appears in previews that they have mostly scenes from their DVD's there too. How much content is on the subsite?
I was considering joining this site, because it looks attractive enough, but the 19.95$ PU offer doesn't seem to apply in Europe, because the monthly membership was 29.95Ä. I tried it a couple of times just to make sure, but same price appeared. Sorry, I am not joining at that price...
Just to let you know when I joined, I joined because of how it was rated, which I think they are OVER rated this site. Anyway when I joined thru pornuser.com to Hustler, the reduced price was only for 1 month, it then switches to the regular price of about $30.00 dollars...I checked again with the CC company and it also stated it was a TRIAL. Another thing that got me mad was that the bonus sites are bogus, the DVD's are broken down into classes, babes, teens. milf etc. and that is how you get the bonus sites. I'd say save your hard earned money and join some other DVD site which would be money better spent. Pictures cannot be downloaded, unless you click and save every single picture one by one. Not all th DVD's can be downloaded, the movie size is about 720 or smaller on some of the DVD's.
I figured that I wouldnít do a full review since there have been a couple recently and Iím in agreement with most of what the reviewers say.
First off is a really general opinion of the site. I was glad to get access to such a large portion of the Hustler catalogue. Three cheers to Larry for that. But I was mostly disappointed with the site. There are a few little things that I can point to that I didnít like, but overall it was a just a feeling that the site could Ė and should Ė be so much better.
I donít get this. If I had the resources that Hustler has, Iíd make the best damned porn site on the Ďnet. Itíd be easy to access and navigate through, and Iíd have multiple options for streaming and downloading that would push the industry standard. I figure that of all the old Ďmainstreamí print empires, Hustler would be the most likely to try this. Playboy wouldnít, because they have no hardcore to offer. Penthouse Ė well Penthouse tried to be everything to everyone and became nothing to nobody. But Larry Flynt seemed to get video early.
The Hustler website, however, seems to have something about it that I canít quite describe. Itís like it was born of an order from Larry who said ďThis internet thing seems to be catching on a bit with the young people. But itís just a flash in the pan and people will abandon it soon and come back to magazines. Get in and get some of that internet business but donít go overboard because itíll die.Ē Thatís the sense I get about the site. Itís a kind of malaise. The kind that plagued North American car manufacturers for so long. You know Ė when you bought a Big 3 car and got a sense that some engineer said on a Friday afternoon, ďItís good enough. Letís go home.Ē
There are little things. For one thing, the stuff that was posted years ago has never been updated. Those files still have crappy resolution and come in multiple parts. The best resolutions available donít appear often and even those would barely meet the standards of many other websites. The search function for the talent didnít work. I tried it several times throughout my membership and it never worked right at all. And for those of us who download, in many cases the highest quality download was much less than the highest quality stream.
Bottom line for me is this site is definitely worth a membership to get access to Hustlerís stuff, but it could have been so much better. Picture itís 1976 and Larry Flynt brings out the Vega. It has an engine thatíll blow up in 20K miles, a three-speed manual tranny, and bias-ply tires. Kink.com is Honda, sneaking in with a little product called the Civic that has more technology in itís radio than the entire Vega. The Vega was a decent little car, but for a lot of people, good enough ainít good enough.
Many people have already pointed out the good stuff and the bad so I won't do a review, just go over the stuff that I encounter and thus add my 2 cents...
-not enough photos
-sometimes frustrating to navigate
-some videos cannot be downloaded
-DRM is not in effect anymore. See reply #1 from webmaster
-a pretty decent price
-a lot of interesting videos such as the This ain't series (this ain't star trek, this ain't happy days, etc.)
-a lot of pron that clearly has a large-ish budget behind it. Quality stuff all and all, but the DRM is frustrating...
