Homegrown Video Review by Maggie Homegrown Video

Review by Maggie

Released Apr 8, '14 , Written Apr 2, '14
Intro

Since 1982, Homegrown Video has been sharing the private escapades of real people with the world. They began with VHS and have evolved over the last 30 years to the internet, where we can enjoy their massive archive with thousands of scenes with one membership. I've had the pleasure of viewing Homegrown Video a few times over the years and I was looking forward to seeing what was new with this legendary company.


The Pros

  Exclusive amateur collection.

Homegrown Video features all exclusive amateur hardcore and lesbia action. These are real couples fucking at home. The result is some very real, very hot sex with people who are actually enjoying themselves. It's not always pretty, but it's hot to see real couples getting naughty and nasty with each other and how kinky average people can be!

  Great number of scenes.

There are over 3,200 videos and 1,400 galleries currently online. That's a fantastic collection with plenty to keep members entertained for a long time.

  Lots of community features.

Homegrown Video has a very loyal following of fans that have remained true over the years. That's very evident in some of the community features offered here. Messaging, forums, profiles and more are included. And of course, there's also the fact that the content here is all submitted by members! This is a great place to interact with fans and fellow porn lovers just like yourself.

Other Good Stuff:

  • There are plenty of options for watching these scenes. They can be streamed in Flash in three quality settings. They can be downloaded as mp4s and wmvs, each with 3 and 4 settings respectively, and as wmvs clips in three quality settings. Those are some impressive options!
  • Videos can be viewed by date, rating, popularity, and category.
  • A new video is added to the site daily.
  • Members of The Best Porn can join Homegrown Video at a special discount price of $15 a month, a nice savings off their regular price of $25 a month.

The Cons

  Average quality content.

These scenes look average at best. They max out at 640 x 480; you can forget about high definition. You can tell these were filmed in homes with whatever random cameras the folks have. You'll see lighting issues, graininess and generally small video.

Minor Negatives:

  • The photos haven't been updated in two years. This is clearly a video site at this point.
  • There are quite a few ads in the member's area and the pages can be cluttered.
  • No file sizes are provided for the videos.

Bottom Line

Bigger and better than ever, with lots to enjoy including community features.

Homegrown Video has done well at incorporating new user-friendly features into the site since my last visit, and of course it is bigger than ever. Quality is still an issue, but it really is just the nature of the genre and it's something members will have to accept until more of their submitters have higher quality cameras. With a massive collection and a low monthly price, Homegrown Video is a great value. This is a fun site with a lot of personality that all amateur fans really must check out at some point in their online porn travels.
