Are the 80's considered vintage yet? The Classic Porn is all about the 70's and 80's/90's of porn (some late 60's too), the golden times where bushes were in full-bloom, breasts were likely the real deal as were the orgasms. Inside the member's area there are something like 2,860 DVD's listed featuring over 8,650 of some of your most favorite porn stars. Names like: Amber Lynn, Christy Canyon, Debbie Diamond, Ron Jeremy, Peter North, Buck Adams, John Holmes, Nina Hartley, you get the idea. There may not be any HD quality downloads on a video site like this, but a trip down memory lane sure is inviting.
Classic DVD Porn From The Late 60s to 80s.
Does it get any better than this? Who doesn't love a good classic porno film? The stuff you looked at as teenagers, or snuck a peek at as kids when the parents were away. The Classic Porn has got a pretty good collection of all your old school favorites from the 60s, 70s, and 80s-90s. All films are listed as a full download, meaning each is 60 to 90 minutes worth of video.
Some Nice Browse Tools/Community Set-Up.
Content can be listed by year, porn star, update or top rated. All DVD info is cross-linked to similar content: cast, director, category, etc. When you browse by porn star, a great bio is given and a "filmography" lists and links to the DVD's they appear in on the site. All stars & DVD's offer users the chance to rate, comment and add knowledge about the content to the member's area. It's clear they're working hard here to make this one very user-friendly, community set-up type of experience.
Flash Streams Available.
Not only are the Flash streams convenient (especially when you consider these are full-length DVD downloads, 60 mins ), but The Classic Porn has somehow made it easy to jump around without having to wait for a long buffer time. The quality varies depending on the age and encoding of the film, but I was satisfied with it overall.
Other Good Stuff:
While there is no date stamps on the scenes, new DVD's appear to be added daily. And based on the enormous increase in content counts since my last visit, I believe it.
As far as I know there is no daily download limit and no DRM restrictions on the videos.
Quality Ranges & Is Generally Below Average.
Unfortunately some of these movies are so old that the quality just can't be matched to todays' standards. The picture quality often times looks washed out and the sound isn't always the best. But then again, would anything else bring you back to the old school the same? At this point, though, many of these videos just look bad in terms of quality.
Only One Download File Format.
Flash is all you get when it comes to streaming and MP4 for downloading these classic scenes. And considering only the full DVD is your viewing/download option, it might be a while before you're looking at the actual scene/star you desired. Compared to just about any other DVD site out there, this one is really lacking in terms of download options.
No Date Stamps on Scenes or Clear Update Schedule.
There's been a large enough increase in scenes since my last visit to verify updates are actually coming in, but lack of date stamps or a clear update schedule in the member's area feels misleading.
Many DVD's still don't offer any information on the content, so unless you're a scholar of vintage photos/videos/porn (or simply don't care), you'll just have to take their word for it when it comes to dates, etc. A member's forum (coming soon) and user ratings/comments are in place to tackle this issue.
The site design here is majorly cluttered with ads and upsells. This is already a somewhat dated, busy looking site and the added upsells certainly don't help.
Image sizing is really small and definitely more of a back-up to the actual material, the videos.
A good DVD site for all your old school favorite pornstars & films.
I like old classic pornos, so for me The Classic Porn was a treat in itself. Sure there is plenty of room for improvement overall here. I think they've done a good enough job with quality, but I'd like to see if they could do even better? The picture quality may not always match up to todays' films, but it would be cool to see them give it a go just the same. My biggest complaint here would be with how limiting the viewing & download options are. They've managed to pull off nice scene streams, but not offering scenes or alternate download file formats is a pain. Overall The Classic Porn is definitely a site worth seeing if you're game for a blast from the past and like the idea of downloading full-length DVD's.
