No other cons that I can think of.
VideosZ is one of the best sites I've subscribed to. Lots of content, thousands of scenes and niches.
Excellent quality video.
Has both HD and DVD movies.

-Ridiculous amounts of content. Well over 12000 films totaling over 70000 scenes
-They have brought in good number of 720p HD films. They have close to 700 HD films at the moment
-Very good update rate, lately 5 films per day with one HD release
-Many great studios featured, some like Harmony Films look like they might have actually more material here than on the official sites
-Very good TPB price with no regional billing and using reputable cc billers
-Fast download with DL manager up to over 12MB/s but usually somewhere little below 10. Sometimes the files can get stuck on slower speed
-Very nice site design. Modern and clean looking and has configureable options to fit your personal tastes
-The scene preview is actually better when you are not logged in. Multiple screenies tell a lot more than the frozen viewer image. You can see more when previewing the whole title. At least it doesn't autoplay the scene (there's an option for that too)
-In site ads
-Some of the older films on the site are not up to DVD quality
-Some suspiciously old films released as "HD" updates caught my eye in previews. Well, they are upscaled and end up just taking more space on your hard drive. Luckily there are not many
-Compilation releases have same scenes as some films released before as original titles
-Could use maybe even more search tags with the huge amount of scenes
-Some releases are quite B-class
-Pre checked cross sale on the cc billers web page
VideosZ is a very typical site in the genre that is often called DVD site. While the world today has little to do with DVD's, the basic meaning is that you are offered a huge selection of complete film title releases from various studios on one site. Frankly I'm not wholly sure if all of this new stuff even gets a proper DVD or Bluray release on physical media these days but the new content is only a part of the whole deal as these sites feature large archives of older and even vintage releases.
While there's over 200 studios on this site with releases, not all of them have much content or are very high quality. The top ones in the sheer numbers of material are Legend, Red Light District and Platinum X Pictures. Other famous ones or the ones I personally like include Elegant Angel, Private, Harmony Films and Evil Playgrounds. When you go to the actual websites of some of these studios that offer memberships, you might actually notice that on this site you get more material from them for a better price and in better quality. Plus everything else of course. The shortage of material certainly isn't going to be your issue with this site with over 12000 film titles. The shortage of storage space and download bandwidth on the other hand could be ;)
The site updates frequently and here it means "a lot". On average you get five updates per day, one of which is HD release in 720p. The higher resolutions are available in mp4 and there are also smaller avi-files. It's a bit hard to tell if some material available in HD gets released in DVD resolution but one thing is clear: At times they seem to have run out of HD release and fake one. It was indeed suspicious noticing "Zazel: The Scent of Love" as a 720p HD release when I remember this film from when was young (it was shot in 1995 according to Wikipedia and apparently also released as remastered Bluray HD release but apparently the version available on this site is not the true HD one). The quality of the releases is varying without doubt, some are top class and in HD while others are quite mediocre fillers. The quality of more recent releases is good in HD and DVD quality in non HD films. The old stuff doesn't always come close to DVD quality and theses sites aren't too keen remastering old stuff apparently. Obviously it does little to attract new subscribers compared to adding new material.
Of the studios avaiable here, I'm particularly happy with many HD (38 out of 114) and DVD releases from Harmony Films. Very high quality fetishy European stuff from great directors like Tanya Hyde, Strangelove and Gazzman. This site is probably better source of their films than their own site and certainly cheaper! I'm also happy to see a very comprehensive selection of Private DVD's with almost 300 titles on this site. Sadly they are among the older stuff so the quality is not the best around. Paradise Film is another one worth mentioning, not only for good things. A large number of HD releases are from this company that is unknown to me but strangely the scenes are all not. I'm sure I've seen a number of them on sites like DDF and 21Sextury. They also seem like "direct to digital distribution" releases with many same scenes across different titles resultin in lots of duplicates. Their quality is top however.
The site itself is good looking with clean design that works well. Search function works ok and it completes the name of actress or film so it's easier to find what you are looking for. There are also many categories for easier browsing although sometimes you wish for even more as some like "fetish" are quite generic. Downloads are fast, I could manage up to 12MB/s using download manager.
One of the sites to stay on, not just subscribe for a month or two. Again for the cons I had to think quite hard and when I look at what I came up, I feel I'm complaining about nothing really. Remember to buy an extra hard drive first and maybe upgrade your broadband!

+Over 12000 dvd's to choose from.
+They update with 35 new releases each week.
+All content is dated.
+You can view a percentage of their upcoming releases and the dates when they will be uploaded.
+They offer some studios not found on Videobox and they also have more movies from some studios available on Videobox.
-They have started to offer some dvd's in HD.
-A huge percentage of their library is also available on Videobox.
-Videosz may have more releases from one studio but in return VB will have more from another one.
-Download speeds are often quite slow which is deadly for a site with such a huge library.
-The same scene can be on more than one dvd since there are many third party studios.
-A large amount of the content is at least 5 years old and a lot is much older.
-For some strange reason they list some studios but don't actually carry any of their movies.
-They have the bulk of some studios content but they also only have a tiny portion of many other studios.
-A large percentage of their releases are not new movies but often older content.
-Video reolution is not the greatest. There are plenty of videos that are 480x360. Not bad on a competer monitor but watching this on a bigger screen is likely to be noty very fun.
*This site is more or less identical to VB except that VB seems to be concentrating on releasing more recent movies while VidesZ is trying to bring bask ones. It does have it's share of more recent movies but I'd say that this is by far the smaller percentage than older titles. Now for some that is a bad thing but for others it's a great thing because some of the movies being offered byt VideosZ were all big hits at one time but have since stopped being produced for dvd so this is a great place to still get access to them. Even if the titles are still available on dvd then this is still a significantly cheaper place to get them than actually buying tons of dvd's.
*It would be nice to see better download options and also higher resolution on their videos.
*Their Paradise Films & Evil Playgrounds studios are great for people interested in Eastern European porn and who haven't yet joined a site like Teen Mega World because these studios get their content from the same source. Of course if you have joined that studios and similar ones than you may want to skip by the content from those studios because you probably already have it on one of your drives.
*The bottom line is that if you are looking to get access to certain studios that VB doesn't carry then you are obligated to join this site. I mean it's less than 20$ with the TBP/PU discount so it's a bargain that anyone should take. Just be aware that if you have to have HD content then this may no be the place to come because they only have about 650 titles that are HD.

- Lots and lots of content 11,196 DVD's each with a few different scenes for a total of somewhere like 66,000 scenes. Out of those 472 DVD's are HD quality for a total of 4500 HD scenes.
- Options for download are AVI at 360p MP4 at 520p and for the HD MP4 at 720 p
- Frequent updates (daily DVD's)
- Excellent selection of DVD's with many titles from several different studios, a lot of niches offered, but the focus seems to be on 18 and rough sex. (around 10,000 18+ scenes, 10,000+ anal and only around 5000 mature and under 400 softcore; 500 BBW, 600 European and around 3000 behind the scenes)
- Nice browsing options including a very convenient "Network feature" so you can quickly select the kind of scene you want.
- Streaming works well, good ways to find similar content or more content with the same model, overall good technical webdesign and functional too.
- Great download speeds, very fast no time-outs no issue downloading multiple scenes overnight.
- A few videos aren't labeled properly/ some links don't lead to the right scene. I remember the site suggesting more Amai Liu (teen) scenes but instead it led me to a group scene with some mature models.
- Many of the older DVD's are only available as avi at 320p, while this is in no way the fault of the site, it's a bit of a disappointment.
- The site has animated adds at the bottom of all pages, no bid deal since it's easy to ignore them, but might be a con for some.
- Sometimes the recommendation engine is not the best. For example after I watched several anal videos on a Max Hardcore scene it recommended me some girl punishing a guy scene. It didn't happen very often, but it was a bit strange.
It's always hard to review a mega site like this one mostly because the content is taken from DVD's so if the light is bad or the action is filmed at odd angles it's not really the fault of the network. Also the content is not exclusive and it's tough to say how much you could find on other sites in different quality. Would it be a better deal to join Videobox or Videosz or maybe Pornstarnetwork? Hard to say since there is much overlap, but also some DVD's unique to each site.
Also like every other network there are a lot of DVD's here that I wouldn't spend money on, but I can hardly blame the site for it, they are simply offering everything they can get the license to.
That being said Videosz had a lot of content and are updating aggressively, being very close to the offering of Videobox (I think right now Videobox has 1000 or 2000 more DVD's but considering you have to get an extra membership with evilangel or Kink or whatever to get everything on Videobox maybe the two are about equal).
The one downside to Videosz is that some scenes are on here twice under different names, probably as studios released different DVD's with content they already had out there. It's not a huge problem but I'd say I found maybe 30 or so scenes that were on here twice, mostly older stuff. Videosz also seemed to have more of an issue with correctly identifying the actresses in the movies, and sometimes their recommendation engine was a bit off.
I'd also add that Videobox seems to have more studios available on their network, but Videosz has more content from each of the studios they do feature. Also Videosz seems to have more hardcore action and more 18+ while videobox has more of a diversity, with more niches tagged.
Another nice addition to videosz is the so called "networks" like 18&abused, 18 Schoolgirls, 18 babysitters. It's a quick filter link that allows you to get some specific content, now most of it is 18 and something so it's pretty obvious the site's focus is on young adult sex.
Other than this rather minor difference the site is pretty similar to Videobox and the difference is really one of which interface do you prefer. They are both high quality technically, allow for easy preview of the scenes, great download speeds, good value and easy searching.
If you're still purchasing DVD's I'd highly recommend this site or one of the similar DVD network since the quantity of scenes available is unbeatable.

A huge archive of DVDs. Today's count stands at 10441 with five new ones being added daily.
Approximately 350 DVDs are available in HD at present, at 1280x720p. Most are in mp4 format. If you don't like large files there is also the option to download the DVD at reduced quality, again in mp4 or, for the smallest files, in avi format.
Excellent search engine.
Excellent streaming (depending on how many scenes you are downloading while viewing.)
People who like niche content are not forgotten, with studios like Niche and White Ghetto and
others that present the occasional unusual fare being well represented.
No download limits.
Favorite scenes and DVDs can be saved for a viewing or download later on.
I really have to stretch to find anything negative to say. Videosz is slightly more expensive than its nearest competitor. It also does not have the capacity to create custom clips, but that's about it for me.
I like Videosz, as a matter of fact I like it better than its not-to-be-named main competitor in the DVD business.
I had complained in the past that niche content was being ignored at Videosz in favor of run-of-the-mill mainstream material, and it is true that it still represents only a small part of the whole, but they have way more than, okay I'll name it, Videobox, who are too conscious of the importance of holding on to their target audience to be bold enough to present an update now and then that would most likely be resoundingly rejected by the majority.
I would still like to see more niche material because after long years of porn viewing I do appreciate anything that is different, even if it isn't always pretty, but also understand the law of supply and demand.
I am enough of a realist to understand that if they didn't cater to the majority they would quickly be out of business. So keep on doing what you are doing, Videosz.
Your average update is in no way inferior to anyone else's and I have the feeling you are trying hard to keep everyone happy.
That's good enough for me to give you a high rating.
*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.
These were the remarks by Videosz going with one of today's offerings:
"Porn the way you like it. No plot, drama, or character development. Just hot steamy sex. No trails of courtship, or even the tedium of undressing. No intro. This Movie is for you discerning triple-X fans. Its purpose is to liberate you from all those annoying stories while titillating you with hot sex. But in the end this movie truthfully isn't "Just Another Porn Movie." "
If this truly reflects the majority taste then those of us who are a bit more discerning are in for some rough, read boring, times.
Please tell me you wouldn't download a DVD like that and give me back my faith in Porn Users in general. Please!!
Current member, had been a member before and really like how they have improved the site. VideoBox is still tops with their ability to create a custom clip but for everything else VideoZ is it's equal or better. I some areas I think they have better selections than VideoBox
I've turned into a paranoid sucker about these pre-checked cross-sells. (had some bad shit happen with that elsewhere)
So a question: anybody here experienced ignorance of unchecking those pre-sells?
About content after doing some new preview-browsing and thinking about a rejoin (did not have any problems with that pre-checked stuff earlier, here):
asmith12 gave it 75 with a major cons:
"-- with a few exceptions, same old, same old."
This time I do not agree with asmith - I find the updates during the last 3-4 months at VideosZ much better than at the main competitor, VideoBox.
I think the words: "same old" really goes for VideoBox, whereas VideosZ is far more into newer stuff from more different producers - worldwide.
I avoided this site in the past because of DRM, but finally joined today.
This site blows Videobox out of the water. Why? You have the TBP discount here, and they have a much better selection of material. I can't see getting through it in a month.Plus the download speed I'm getting is 1.8MB/s! Fastest I've had on any site I've been in.
I decided to give this site a spin for a month. There was a nice $1.95/2 day trial offer for ZTOD.com when joining - that's a pretty good deal since membership - including trial membership - to ZTOD.com includes membership to ThirdMovies.com and BlackIce.com.
I don't care about Black Ice, but Third Degree does some nice stuff, as does Zero Tolerance. One thing I found, though, is that both those sites now offer HQ downloads - they look fabulous, but play haltingly on the 2 media players that I tried playing them back on - too bad - longer download time, less enjoyable results. The 2nd largest download option - the 720p option - gave me better results on both sites. When I was cancelling my membership to ZTOD.com - I would have been whacked with $34.95/month if I didn't cancel within 2 days - I was offered a membership of $29.95 - I didn't take it, but the trial offer was a sweet deal, even with the playback issues - sometimes video playback freeze gives you great images.
I have had a problem downloading some of Videosz DVDs because, even though I am properly signed in and can download most other DVDs (scenes) without a hitch, there are some videos that will pop up a screen asking me to sign in again with my username and password.
I went to their self-help section, informed them of the problem and got the reply that it might be that I was trying to sign in incorrectly!!!
My reply was that I WAS signed in when this happened and was hoping for an explanation from Videosz why I was asked for the information all over again from WITHIN the site.
In reply I got an email that quoted my reply to their confused attempts to "help" me first time around and asked me to resubmit it properly through customer self-help and not through an email.
No attempt to be courteous or apologetic and if the person responding had paid closer attention to my original question in the first place there would not have been a need for a further email and explanation on my part.
So, thumbs down when it comes to customer support for their inability to interpret calls for help properly and for their indifference.
It's enough to stop me from re-subscribing in the future. I like support persons who appreciate my custom.
VideosZ is a damn fine site - a site I've become a little happier with than Videobox - lately.
But - alas - there are still some/a few files that are DRM-protected - and even as a member it's not possible to play these files - the license acuiring does not work.
Ok, it's all older stuff, but I found some favorites here, so...too bad.
It looks like they're cleaning up among the older ones of those now 5250 dvds, but still...
As of January 2009, all movies are downloadable as 640x480 DivX, or 640x480 H.264 MP4. This is an upgrade from the previous encoding format of 480x360 DivX, but like previous updates older movies remain in their previous encoding - no effort is being made to re-encode all previous movies.
The watermark still remains, but it has become more subtle and more transparent.
The members area has changed only subtly - the lone change is the way the download options are presented, everything else is the same.
They now offer a 2-day trial, full access, for $4.
A lot cheaper than one month, and even cheaper than VideoBox (okay, a lot shorter too), but it is a cheap way to join and download some videos that you may not find elsewhere.
WARNING: Make sure to UNCHECK the box on the signup page for the Brazzer's Network trial (1 day for $1, then recurs at a healthy $40 monthly). You shouldn't have to scroll any, but it can be very easy to miss, as it is in the same size and style font as everything else.
Hey I joined recently, it's handy that I don't have to download a movie before I can watch it.
I can play forward in the movies without waiting..buffering which I had before with 3 other porn sites.
Quality is also good for me, but the most important is that I can check all the movies online and play it fast forward.. because sometimes you want another movie.
Myself have not seen DRM with movies that I had download.
