I'm Live is up for review today, and it's one of the larger private cam sites out there these days. They've been around for quite a while now, and we've even looked at their site several times in the past. They currently have about 1,200 people online and ready to cam it up for you, just to show how big of a site they are. The basics are pretty standard here. You have to sign up for a free account, and then you can buy blocks of credit to use for the cam shows. Most girls I saw were in the $2 range per minute, but it varies a lot of course between expensive girls, and special discounts you can find.
Lots of models online.
One of the saddest things is go to go a cam site with $30 credit in your wallet, and only find six girls to choose from. If two of them are taking a break, three are fat, and other barely speaks English, what are you supposed to do? Thankfully that's not the case here. There are tons of models online in all the prominent categories, so you should be able to find someone to pleasure you.
Prices are on the lower end.
I wouldn't quite call them cheap, but you can get in for $1-$1.50 a minute if you look around a bit for the specials, discounts, or just cheaper girls. That's a lot better than other sites who charge $5+ a minute for similar shows.
Other Good Stuff:
All the usual extras are here, from cheaper recorded shows, to profiles with pictures, etc.
There are some nice bonus features here too. I particularly like the Live View, which costs 3 credits per minute, that lets you watch other private shows live in a small window (six at a time). Maybe you'll find a hot chick already naked and playing.
Quality still needs work.
The whole quality thing has always been a sticking point for the whole webcam thing. Unless you do everything in house (which I've seen once or twice where the quality was awesome), you're just stuck with whatever crappy webcam and internet connections the girls have, which usually aren't that good.
Too much clutter.
I understand that they're a large site, but there are just too many sections when you first login, and it's overwhelming. If they could push some of the competitions and other interactive elements off the front page and into a separate section, it would help.
Needs more filters.
With so many people online and ready to go, they need a way to filter these people down by more than just girl vs. guy. Why not have them tag what they're willing to do on cam? Anal? Toys? Cum in mouth? Who the hell knows, but put it out there.
Granted, at least your first 20 seconds are free, but I miss a little preview to see that the girl is around, and that she looks remotely close to her profile picture.
There are lots of foreign models here overall, which is the norm these days. Just don't expect Susie 19 year old from next door to be in the majority here.
There are no secondary video options. I can think of one or two other sites that provide multiple video types, which is cool if one works better than another.
A large camsite with fun features, but I'm surprised more hasn't been done by now.
Cam sites have been around so long, and I'm Live is one of the early ones, that I'm surprised there haven't been more innovations in this arena. I feel like the technology and setups are all very similar (despite some redesigns of course), and they still feel a bit hokey to me overall. But, from the options out there, I'm Live is one of the leaders. They have a ton of people online, the prices are in line with the other sites out there, and they try to provide a few unique ways to see things. Even though I feel they could do more with newer technology, they're one of the best options out there currently, which you can't complain about too much.
