Pornstar Network is up for review today, and while it's been quite a while since they re-branded and re-launched from the old Brain Pass name, this is the first time they'll get their own full review here. It's an interesting mix of a site, with a huge archive of DVDs to rival most of the top DVD sites out there, but also the collection of exclusive sites they've always had as well. That makes for a pretty powerful collection of content that's tough to beat. What they've been working on lately is expanding the interactive experience with the pornstars themselves, tweaking and upgrading the site on a weekly basis it seems, and making the user experience as good as it can possibly be. Their join process for normal people can be a little confusing as they have a free account, a paid account, and then a VIP upgrade option. To get the best, you'd spend $60 a month here. However, if you join through our site by clicking their link, you can get in for $20 a month, and access to the whole shebang, saving you $40 a month. This deal is exclusive to our site, and is pretty awesome.
Huge, huge, huge collection of content.
Yeah, there's a lot to see here. Like most DVD sites, they offer plenty to see with over 56,000 video clips in the DVD section. On top of that, they run some exclusive reality-type sites that offer another 5,000 video clips or so. I don't think you'll run out of material here anytime soon.
Lots of daily updates.
Again, as with most DVD sites, the updates here come daily, and then some. The last week here saw over 200 new video clips from 30 DVDs or so. Along with the already huge collection, there's lots of new content every single day as well.
Great interaction with a lot of pornstars.
They're off to a good start in this area, and this is one place that I really look forward to seeing what they do in the future because it could really help them stand out from the crowd. Since this site is called the Pornstar Network, it's only fitting that they concentrate on those stars. Many of the girls have a nice bio written out, some basic stats, plus a wall and Twitter account feed. You can even tweet back and forth to the girls without your own account, just in case you don't want your sister reading what you write to pornstars. Once they add in the camshows that they want to get going with these girls, the interaction will be some of the best out there.
Nice navigation setup.
They've tweaked things and added some new features since the last time I was here. You have all the basics including searching by category, studio, model, DVD title, etc. Plus, you can now stack multiple categories together, plus filter them down by other criteria (update date, etc.) to really get specific. You can even search for up to four pornstars at a time to see what scenes they've done together.
Other Good Stuff:
They have a few daily live shows, though I don't know where these girls come from exactly. They also do a live porn shoot once per month on cam, which they hope to bump up more often in the future.
The collection of exclusive sites here makes this one pretty unique compared to other DVD sites. Granted, some of the sites are a bit older, but you have a very large collection of exclusive content here as well.
Our discounted $20 per month price tag includes full access to their paid membership, plus the Movies upgrade package. You pay 1/3 of what others pay to access everything they've got here.
Not only do they have a full mobile site, but they've made separate (additional) mobile sites optimized for the iPhone and Android phones specifically.
Their homepage has gotten pretty fancy offering recommendations based on your favorites (or simply based on the all-time favorites if you haven't selected any), new scenes from your favorite pornstars, and the latest tweets from them as well.
Their streaming player is doing pretty well these days. The quality isn't perfect, but the video buffers very fast, and you can get a thumbnail preview as you hover over the timeline.
Exclusive sites/scenes should be featured more.
I think their exclusive content section is a pretty big deal. Once you know where it is, it's easy enough to find by hitting the "sites" tab at the top. However, I think these should be featured a little more, and maybe bring more of the sites up to date. I'd love to see more sites updating, and the ability to search these scenes like you do the DVD scenes. As it stands, you now have to go site by site to see that material from what I can tell.
Many exclusive sites not updating.
As you browse through their exclusive sites, you'll notice many of them are quite dated at this point. There are still some active sites to check out, but you don't know till you hit them up unfortunately. I think they're focusing more on the DVD content, though I'd love to see lots of attention put on both areas.
Quality could be a little better.
The DVD scenes look slightly more fuzzy than I was hoping for compared to other similar sites. I think in this genre, everything has to be perfect to really compete. I believe there's some small room to bump that encoding quality up even higher.
The HD videos they have need to be easier to find. It may be hidden in some search somewhere, but they add two a day, and those should be featured even more I'd say.
The design is clean and sharp, but a little boring overall. I think they're going to work on this soon from what I've heard.
There are a couple little banners ads in the member's area, which is a pet peeve of mine.
Their largest pictures are only available in the zip files. Plus, if you browse the galleries in your browser, it's not that easy to save just a single photo with the script the way they have it (in Firefox at least).
For some reason, the video download options vary depending on which video you're viewing. Some offer MP4, or MPG, or WMV, or some combination, but it changes from one to the next, which is strange.
A great collection and wide variety that's tough to beat with all the extras they offer.
Pornstar Network has really done well over the last few years to upgrade and keep pushing forward. Their content numbers are looking great, and the fact that a nice chunk of it is exclusive is awesome as well. I wish the exclusive sites were as active as they used to be, but there's still some new content to be found there. They're also bumping up the interactivity quite a bit, which will really set them apart from the crowd. You can already read blogs and tweets from pornstars, and the cam shows are ramping up in the future as well. There are a few areas I'd still love to see tweaked, including video quality, consistent video options, etc. Otherwise, for the price, you get a ton for your money, and it's definitely one of the hot spots that you need to check out in your search for the perfect porn sites. I see good things coming from these guys in the future.
