Review by Duke

Released Jul 26, '14 , Written Jul 21, '14
Intro

Grooby Archives is a huge archive of Grooby's tranny content that is compiled from their niche sites Black TGirls, Brazilian Transsexuals, Ladyboy Ladyboy, and Shemale Yum. This company doesn't have bonus site access or a network so this Grooby Archives site sort of serves as the place users can get a mix content from several of their sites in one place. Grooby is one of the biggest and best known names when it comes to shemale porn and they do shoot all their own exclusive content.


The Pros

  Original Grooby Tranny Content, Nice Model & Scene Variety.

Grooby Archive does have the mix of content from four different sites so the content includes all different types of trannies with Black, Brazilian, Ladyboys, and all different body types and ethnicities. Action includes tons of solo strip and jerking off along with hardcore of all varieties with TS/guy, TS/girl, and TS/TS. Grooby only does shemale content so it's what they're all about and it's all produced by them. This site houses about five years of content and then there is a Grooby Archives Oldsite which is included and that houses a lot more material.

  Big Collection, Thousands of Videos, Galleries & Models.

The Grooby Archives has been around for about a decade. As I mentioned briefly in the previous bullet point it's broken into a couple parts with this current version and an Oldsite which can be accessed from the member's area. All told the content totals are into the tens of thousands with thousands of different models as well. The newer version/section is really large by itself and then when you include the Oldsite archives it makes the totals quite massive.

  Useful Browsing, Model Index & Search/Advanced Search Tools.

Navigation tools are a key for such a large site and they have site niche categories along with solo and hardcore sections for photos and videos. Additionally there is an advanced search/filter tool with all sorts of fields to narrow things down and locate types of models/scenes. You can even filter by photographer. A model index is also in place with full preview pictures and some details on the models.

  Full-Scene WMV Downloads & Photo Gallery Zips.

For years now they've had consistent options with full-scene WMV files for downloading. A good chunk are at 1280x720 HD level so they have increased quality levels over time. Photos come in at around 1440x980 or 1250x850 with online images, slideshow viewer, and gallery zips.

Other Good Stuff:

  • There are separate short cumshot video segment available on the scenes for users who prefer to grab that for a scene instead of getting the entire video.
  • Video file size and update info are posted on the content. There is also a FAQ page for info on company, billing,cancellation, technical info, etc.

The Cons

  Quality Levels Vary on Content, Lower Level Older Videos.

While they have moved to HD 1280x720 on the newer movies they haven't pushed to higher specs like we're seeing from a lot of paysites nowadays. Mid-range content is more like 640x360 and older can be down to 320x240. Streaming includes a mixed bag with Flash on newer but Silverlight on older movies. Videos on the Oldsite archives are in Real and AVI format which are sort of outdated now. Photo quality levels also vary up and down a bit across the collection and on the Oldsite you're looking at many sets with levels around 800x600 or 700x525.

Minor Negatives:

  • Content is heavily weighted towards solo action with a much smaller amount of hardcore. For example at the time of this review there over 130 pages of solo video scenes versus 16 pages of hardcore.
  • The Oldsite Archive that houses older material has only basic navigation so it requires a lot more hunting-and-pecking to browse around for different types of models and scenes. Users to have to login there again with their user/pwd.
  • There is some model info but not really any scene descriptions. The member's area has some member's area upsell ads and there are also some join page cross-sells.

The other

Bottom Line

A huge archvie of Grooby tranny content from four of their popular niche sites.

Grooby Archives is about the closest thing you'll get to a network from this company. Grooby is one of the most popular shemale content producers and they tend to have separate memberships for each of their sites. Here they archive material from four of those and it makes for a wide-ranging blend of tranny porn. Sheer amount of content is the site's biggest strength and they continue to add stuff constantly.
