Per owners, Gay DVD Empire is also included with membership to this site. DVD and scene counts are for AE Unlimited, and the Unlimited content is a clone of Adult DVD Empire's Unlimited section. AE ppv has higher numbers of DVDs and scenes offered. Some premium videos use credits at 2:1 or 3:1.

AdultEmpire.com is just a massive site offering more than 120,000 scenes from over 25,000 different VODs. Clearly there should be something here for just about everyone! All your favorite studios and pornstars should be found inside as well as scenes from Bang Bros, Porn Fidelity, and other online favorites. Unfortunately it's a VOD site, so to see all of it, well, that would just cost a fortune. But they do also offer option to download to own, as well as a new VOD subscription service called AdultEmpire Unlimited. And some great news, as a reader of TBP you can get in one the first month of unlimited action for a specially reduced $14.99 (recurring at the regular rate of $24.95 per month thereafter), which also gives access to the unlimited version of the Gay DVD Empire and Adult DVD Empire sites.
Large Collection of VODs.
With more than 25,500 full VODs being offered, this is one large collection of content that should have a little something for everyone. Many, many categories are listed even some more niche specific ones like Babysitters, Cuckold, Hairy, Made For Women, Girl on Guy Strapons, Foreign, and more.
Clean Site Design.
There are many options for the videos here; some are available for VOD streaming, while most are also available for rent and purchase. The options for each are all clearly listed along with the VOD cover and screen shots. You can browse videos by these (VOD, Rent, Own it, Unlimited) options as well as every content category listed, studio and star. There's a pretty good user dashboard as well that helps you keep track of all the PPViews, etc.
Quality Can be Good.
The Flash player they use here offers a good quality picture for most VODs. You can choose your different quality settings. Some titles are labeled HD, and although I can't vouch for them as downloads, the overall quality of them should be significantly higher.
New updates are added often and they're massive. This week alone I counted more than 16 VOD titles that were added. This is already an enormous site, and it grows even bigger almost daily.
Many Viewing Options: Rent, Own, PPV, Unlimited.
The movies can be streamed in a pay-per-minute set-up, so you're only paying for what you watch. You can rent it for 2 or 7 days, most with options for HD and SD. You can also download it for $20-$35.99 and then own it forever. The options vary from video to video, but normally there are plenty of different ways to subscribe.
New is a membership for unlimited viewing that also gives access to unlimited viewing of the videos on Adult DVD Empire, Gay DVD Empire, etc. Unlimited users also get access to the Roku channel and free give-aways are offered each week for some lucky new member.
Other Good Stuff:
The Flash streaming offers some good users tools like the ability to easily and quickly jump ahead, change the video quality, rate the scene, add to favorites, and see how much time you have left credit-wise.
Unlimited memberships also include a 10% discount on sextoys, pay per minute packages and DVDs on Adult DVD Empire.
Like any VOD site the content here is not exclusive and may be found on many other VOD sites or by purchasing the video on your own.
VOD Can Get Expensive.
Obviously a VOD method isn't a preferred one for those who like the biggest bang for their buck. some Premium videos will even cost you double per minute than normal.
2-7 day rental downloads are available for many of the videos, but generally speaking, this is not a video download site and nothing is yours to keep unless you choose the Download to Own option, in which case, it's yours.
Set-Up Can be Confusing.
Not all of the videos offer the same options in terms of VOD, rental, DVD, purchase, whatnot. Some are only available for rental and some give the option for a 2 day while others offer 7 day. Even getting around by these different options and categories can get confusing.
While the quality is nice overall, it's important to point out that in terms of bitrate speeds and actual picture quality Adult Empire.com, for most videos, falls just at or below average compared to other sites, especially ones with the amazing HD videos we've been seeing these days.
The archive is large and the new Unlimited streaming membership is a great deal.
This is just a massive amount of studio content to go through. For access to a huge amount of streaming Movies and likely even more that can be rented/downloaded. Sure, VOD can get expensive very quickly, but you really can't be at a loss for material here. And if you decide to join for the Unlimited package, there's so much more that is included with a membership, not to mention if saves on cost and TBP users can get in on the action for a reduced price initially. Video quality can range and is hard to guage, but this is clearly one very well done VOD site with an option for an unlimited VOD membership as well.
