Dark Thunder Review by Maggie Dark Thunder

Review by Maggie

Released Nov 13, '13 , Written Nov 6, '13
Intro

Dark Thunder is a gay black site with videos and galleries of hung ebony hotties in action. The sex is mainly black on black, and the latest videos capture it in high definition. Membership to the collection is offered at $25 a month.


The Pros

  Original gay collection.

These are all original scenes of hot black gay guys in action. The guys range from bigger studs to newbie twinks. You'll see masturbation, blowjobs, fucking, cumshots, and group sex in this sexy gay collection.

  Easy to navigate.

There are some really handy tools for sorting the content. Models, galleries, and videos can be viewed by name, date, top rated, and most viewed. Everything is laid out in a way that is intuitive and user-friendly.

  Good-sized site.

Dark Thunder has been online for five years and they've built a decent collection in that time. There are currently 167 videos and 282 galleries online, so there's plenty to keep members entertained.

  High quality content.

Some of the videos are labeled high definition and those scenes look great. They play at 2100k and are 1280 x 720 in size. They're big and sharp and a solid upgrade for the site.

Other Good Stuff:

  • The favorites folder, user ratings, and mailing list are all good user tools.
  • Videos can be streamed in browser using Flash in four quality settings and downloaded as a wmv in four quality settings, as well.

The Cons

  Not enough video download options.

Each video can be streamed in Flash in multiple quality settings, so I have no complaints about the streaming. However, when you want to download you're limited to just WMV in one quality setting. There are no other quality settings, clip length options, or formats from which to choose.

  Older scenes aren't as sharp.

It's only the newest movies that are offered in high definition. The rest are limited to 640 x 480 and they look quite average. Keep in mind that a fair portion of the collection is offered at these lower specs.

Minor Negatives:

  • Updates have been slow lately, with just one new scene added in the last two months.
  • There are a few ads in the member's area. They aren't awful, but they are there.
  • Downloads were on the slow side. Even with a download manager, speeds were a fraction of what I'm seeing on other sites.
  • There are no zip downloads for the photo galleries.

Bottom Line

Not a bad join for fans of the genre, but updates need work.

Dark Thunder delivers some hot HD action that's great for fans of hung black men in gay scenes. Streaming fans will enjoy the many viewing options and the site is user-friendly overall. That said, there's nothing here that really blew me away. The collection size is fine, there's some older non-HD scenes, and the updates are slow. The price is average, at $25 a month. All in all, I think there are better sites in this niche out there, but Dark Thunder still isn't bad.
