Classic Porn Box is up for review today, and they offer a niche that we get a decent number of requests for, which is classic porn. Most of the dates on their content I saw ranges from the early 1970's to the late 1980's, which for many on the internet today should include some of their favorites from early in their porn careers. They offer around 600 DVDs currently, thought I don't exactly know how extensive the collection is. Many pornstar and movie favorites can be found at least, and I assume the site is still growing. $21 a month gets you in the site, which I guess isn't too bad of a price here.
Great theme and collection.
We get asked about finding old-school classic DVDs from time to time, so it's nice to have some options on where to send people. A lot of the material here will be very old favorites for people, perhaps that they'd already forgotten about. This is many people's first look at porn as we know it, so it holds a special place in their heart.
Pretty large site.
As with most DVD-type sites, they have a lot of content here. They currently offer around 600 movies, which is larger than most paysites you'll come across. To really compete, they'll need a lot more content still, but at least it's a good start.
Updates come quite often.
I didn't see them at first, but once you find the update schedule, you'll see that they add a lot of content each week here. New additions are put up every other day on average, and the updates from from 3-5 full movies, which should contain multiple scenes I assume.
Navigation needs improvement.
They actually offer a few different options here: view by pornstar, view by movie title, or view a random list (which seems odd). Unfortunately, they break those down by first letter, but then do not sort them in order once viewing the list. In addition, there's no current way to search/view by category (threesomes, blondes, etc.), though it does say it's "coming soon" hopefully. They also don't let you know where the newest movies are, which would be another method I'd look for.
Very plain design.
Right when entering the site, you'll notice a pretty lackluster design here. It looks very homemade, and does not give off the right image in my opinion. A total redesign would help give you a better impression right from the start.
Needs more video options.
Each video comes in only a single, full download. These are usually AVI files, but some WMV were seen as well. Forget about several video types, or smaller clips per scene. For a video site, the choices are pretty weak.
Not enough video previews.
The video preview page could offer more. Some pages just list a little bio info on the actors, etc., without any images at all. Most will offer a couple screencaps, plus the cover in addition to the specs and info, but that's it. I'd look for more preview images, and maybe some video tags on what's contained in the video, to give people a chance to decide if it's something they might like.
Quality can be pretty bad at times.
When you're dealing with older content, there's already a level of expectation that's lower than today's material. However, some videos here are just smaller and not encoded nearly as well. I'd get the best possible quality out of all the videos I could here since you're already at a disadvantage.
I've seen this before on other sites, but the file sizes are off here a little from what they advertise. If a video claims to be a 702MB file, it's usually in the 685MB range in actuality.
For some reason, they don't offer any streaming or Flash videos, which may annoy some.
A good concept, but some major upgrades are needed for now.
Classic Porn Box has the right idea, but the site just needs some time to really get things in order compared to most sites we see these days. Thankfully, the collection is large (as with most DVD sites), and the classic theme should get some people interested. From there, it goes downhill. The site is very plain, and even some professional graphics and design would help project a better image. They actually have a few options for browsing the content, but none are ideal (by pornstar, by movie title, or randomly). The lists they have aren't even in alphabetical order, though they are grouped by first letter. Getting the actual categories up will be a huge help. Video options are at a bare minimum, and some of the videos don't look as good as the others. Updates are not dated, so you have no idea when updates come, and which videos are the newest. Even the page that previews the video needs some work to get you excited about downloading the 700MB file. The idea is good, but for now, the implementation needs some work, especially compared to some of their competition.
