Grooby Archives Review by Maggie Grooby Archives

Review by Maggie

Released May 1, '13 , Written Apr 22, '13

The Grooby Archives calls itself "The Biggest Shemale Website in the World." Grooby Archives has been collecting hot tranny content from their sites for over eight years, and in that time it truly has grown into what has to be the world's largest shemale site. Here you'll find many of the hottest scenes from their other sites, Shemale Yum, Black TGirls, Brazilian Transsexuals, and Ladyboy Ladyboy, all put together in one neat package for you. Late last year the site went through a complete restructuring so I was definitely looking forward to seeing what was new!

The Pros

  Exclusive shemale collection.

These are all original scenes of hot trannies pulled from Grooby's other wildly popular sites. No matter if you enjoy Asians, Latinas, Ebonies, or American and European t-girls, they've got you covered. The action is as varied as their models' ethnicities, with plenty of hardcore in all different gender combinations, and some sexy softcore and solo masturbation as well. This fantastic collection offers something for everyone.

  Good-sized site.

Grooby Archives has been online for eight years and in that time they've built an awesome collection. There are currently over 1.3 million photos and nearly 3,300 videos. That is an incredible collection and it's impossible to imagine actually making it through this whole site.

  High quality content.

Many of the videos include a high definition wmv option. These scenes play at up to 4000k and are 1280 x 720 in size. They're sharp and professional. The same can be said for the photo galleries, which feature some large, good-looking images.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Photo galleries can be downloaded in zip files.
  • Videos can be downloaded as wmvs in three quality settings and streamed in your browser using Silverlight.
  • There are a few tools to help you navigate the large site. You'll see categories, an alphabetical model list, and a great advanced search tool.
  • Updates come often. You can expect at least new sets each week, typically with both photo and video content.

The Cons

  Older scenes are smaller.

As you go back in the collection, you'll see that the scene quality drops off a bit. The photos are much smaller, at 800 x 500, and the videos are just 640 x 480. Gone are the high resolution and high definition scenes. It's great that they've upgraded, but keep in mind that the older scenes are smaller.

Minor Negatives:

  • Although file info is provided, there are no scene descriptions.
  • Videos can only be downloaded in one format, wmv.

Bottom Line

This huge collection of original tranny action offers something for all shemale fans.

I've had the pleasure of reviewing The Grooby Archives in the past but it's been several years, so I was very impressed with all the upgrades they've made to the collection. The high definition scenes are hot! The site is massive and it's also quite user-friendly. There are only a few minor issues, but nothing that would stop me from joining or recommending Grooby Archives to all fans of sexy shemale action.
