English Lads Review by Duke English Lads

Review by Duke

Released Apr 11, '12 , Written Apr 5, '12
Intro

English Lads is a gay site with a big archive of exclusive video and photo content. As the title clearly conveys they focus in on English models so that by itself is a defining characteristic and separates the site from many others. Visitors can get a nice feel for the models and content from the samples shown on the guest tour. They have straightforward membership billing also through CCBill with monthly recurring and non-recurring options along with multi-month memberships.


The Pros

  Exclusive English Guy Content, Nice Mix of Solo & Hardcore.

English Lads delivers nicely when it comes to entertainment value. They have hot English guys in fully developed solo and hardcore video scenes and photo galleries. By fully developed scenes I mean you get a chance to hear the guys chat to the cameraman and each other before getting into the striptease, jerking off, BJs, banging or any other activities. For the hardcore you'll find a blend of both guy/guy and groups. Overall the content is weighted more towards the solo guy action however there is a respectable amount of the hardcore too.

  Large Video/Photo Archive Going Back Years, Steady Updates.

For a site with exclusive content English Lads has a lot of video shoots, photo sets, and models with a track record that dates back quite a number of years. They updates several times per week and continue to roll along nicely with new content being put online regularly.

  High Quality Newer Videos, Some Nice Content Options.

While there are some negative items worth noting on the content options that are noted below in the Cons section overall the options are solid. They have full-video WMV and MOV files for download in multiple levels with newer videos having HD quality 1440x810 6000k for both formats. The in-browser Flash streaming also has high quality levels with quick buffering and the ability to jump ahead immediately.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Nice details are provided for each video or photo set with a written description, videos specs, video file sizes, and date-added. There are also nice bio/stas information for the guys.
  • Design is clean with navigation features including a general search tool and a more specific advanced search for models, video, and photo content.
  • Members can post feedback and comments on the video/photo shoots along with the models themselves. There's good activity there and lots of interesting postings from members.

The Cons

  Restrictions on Photoset Zips, Some Older WMV Have DRM.

There are some limitations on the content options that are certainly worth noting. For the photo galleries the online images are available right away to members however the zip downloads are held back and only can be accessed by users who have been members for 120 days. They have detailed info on this in the member's area and clearly not how many days you have left until that time. The older WMV video downloads also have DRM protection. This stopped back in 2008 so as it stands somewhere around one-third of the videos have this limitation.

  Video Quality Levels are Lower on Older Shoots.

While it's a Pro that they have increased video quality to high-def you will see a dip in quality on the older videos. Older movies top out at 950x540 on the WMV and the MOV have 540x304 for the highest. Smaller photos are also in place on older galleries with the oldest down to 600x450

Minor Negatives:

  • There's room for them to ratchet up the photo size to higher-res. Photo viewing could also be improved as you must select the 'larger' photos and then also expand the pic to get to the largest image.

The other
  • There are a couple blogs: English Lads and Nick's Wine Diary have a lot of postings however they don't really seem very active any longer as there haven't been entries in the months leading up to this review.

Bottom Line

An impressive exclusive collection of gay solo & hardcore content featuring English guys.

Content exclusivity, entertainment, and quantity are real strengths of English Lads. The newer non-DRM HD videos also are a nice feature. These positives clearly outweigh the negatives which includes some limitations on some older videos and gallery zips and the dip in quality. Surfers who like the samples shown on the tour should get their money's worth from the English Lads' member's area.
