Vivid Review by Vanessa Vivid

Review by Vanessa

Released Dec 23, '11 , Written Dec 11, '11
Intro

Many of you out there in porno land are already familiar with the brand name Vivid Video. They are a key player in the adult film industry and house such models as Savanna Samson, Briana Banks, Chasey Lain, with many more appearing in some of their videos. In fact, no video store would be complete without a good portion of the walls being filled with the Vivid Video collection. At Vivid.com, they claim to be the %u201Chome of the hottest pornstars in the world%u201D, offering over 25 years worth of content in more than 423,000 pictures and most importantly over 1,000 videos of some of your favorites! Now that%u2019s a lot of content, and for the low, low price of $19.95/month for TBP users. Need I say more?


The Pros

  Large Collection of Vivid Content.

If you're a fan of Vivid Videos, and who isn't, then this is the place to check them out. There are more than 1,000 full DVD's being offered here currently including classics, parodies, their alternative content, and advanced sex guide videos. Really, there is just about something here for everyone and you know you can expect Vivid quality all around.

  Quality Streaming/Some HD.

Unfortunately everything here is stream-only but the good news is that quality has been looking great lately! Flash streaming is offered in small, medium & HD format with the ability to go full-screen. They're not perfect HD quality, but they are damn good. Jumping around scenes is easy and videos can be watched by scene or in full.

Other Good Stuff:

  • A membership here is offered to TBP readers at a highly discounted rate off the normal price of close to $34 bucks per month. TBP users can get in on the action for just $19.95 per month. A big savings for sure!
  • Digital image are offered to accompany many of the DVDs. The sizing is not large, but they are good quality.
  • 1 complete DVD was added this week, which seems to be about the norm.

The Cons

  No Downloads.

Nothing here is yours to keep. The videos are stream-only in Flash format without any option for downloads. Users must remain a member for as long as they wish to view any of the content here. No ZIPs are offered for the image sets either.

  Browse Tools Are Minimal.

Vivids' site is nicely design but it lacks entirely in terms of browse and navigational tools. There is a model index and basic separation of the videos into: classics, parodies, ALT, ED, etc. but no way to browse/search for specifics like anal, teen, POV, etc. other than the use of a simple keyword search box. Multiple filters are needed, scene tags and other forms of navigational features to make things easier.

Minor Negatives:

  • Too many ads and up-sells clutter the member's area pages including many live cam site ads that I found extremely distracting.
  • Older scenes don't offer the larger Flash formats and the quality may be extremely lacking.

The other
  • Some of their celeb videos are not included with a basic membership, but are available for an extra fee.

Bottom Line

Full length streaming Vivid videos, some with close to HD viewing.

I'm not a big fan of sites that don't offer downloads, but with the Vivid name and the largest collection of Vivid videos together online, this is where its at. For only $20 bucks a month, this site is affordable enough for our users and what it has. The pictures are worth checking out, but are somewhat small in size and not downloadable either. The videos on the other hand, though you are forced to play them in your browser window are looking up in terms of quality. Overall there is just a lot of Vivid video content to check out, making this one very jerk-worthy site, especially for fans of Vivid girls.
