VideoBox Men Review by Duke VideoBox Men

Intro

VideoBox Men is a gay DVD download site with thousands of titles from dozens of studios in all sorts of niche categories. Overall it's a straightforward movie download site with solid viewing/download options, a sizable collection, regular updates, and an inexpensive monthly price. The guest tour is very much an open book style layout where visitors can browse the movies, stars, niches, studios, etc to get a feel for the scope of the collection before signing up. What you see is what you get so there aren't any surprises here.


The Pros

  Large Gay DVD Collection, Many Niches, Studios, Stars.

Quantity is something you always want to see from a DVD archive site such as this. VideoBox Men has a few thousand full movies which translates to over ten thousand individual scenes. Content is a geared towards a general gay audience with action hitting on all sorts of popular categories represented along with some smaller fetishes and specialty themes. Pornstars and performers range from very polished studio stars to more amateur looking guys.

  Nice Quality WMV/MP4 Downloads, Dynamic Flash Streaming.

Video options are consistent with full-scene WMV and MP4 downloadable files along with an iPhone portable file. The WMV has a custom clip creator that allows you to select the start and end point and then download that file. The Flash streaming loads/buffers in a second or two with filmstrip navigation. While the quality doesn't reach up to high-def levels they do have all the fundamentals covered in terms of movie options.

  Clean Site Design, Niche Sections, Star Index & Search.

The layout is straightforward with navigation tools that include niche categories, a pornstar index, studio index, and keyword search. Nice details provided for the scenes with running time length, star names, and front/back box covers. Different favorites tools are available to compile a list of your preferred content on the MyVideoBox Men part of the site.

  Daily Updates, All Movies are Date-Stamped.

VideoBox Men has a commendable track record here with a new DVD added daily going back years. They date-stamp all the content items so you know what the newer stuff is and what the older stuff is when browsing around. There is a content count ticker showing the number of hours/minutes to the next addition.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Members can post feedback and comments on the movies and rate them on a 5-star scale. Some of the feedback posted is pretty entertaining in its own right.
  • The monthly price is inexpensive with straightforward monthly and multi-month options.

The Cons

  Text-Only Model Index, No Advanced Search/Filter Tool.

Some of the navigation tools could be enhanced considering the size of the site. In particular the model index is text-only without a preview photos for the guys. This detracts from the usefulness of that feature. The keyword search is relatively basic and they don't have an advanced search/filter tool that would provide more pinpoint results.

  Non-Exclusive Content Collection, Mixed Bag of Stuff.

No doubt about it the emphasis here is on having a large sized collection and he content comes from dozens of different studios so the movies can be hit-and-miss in terms of entertainment value. They have newer and older movies in there so some of the content does seem dated and not necessarily in a cool vintage sort of way. The good thing is the guest tour isn't hiding anything and spending a few minutes there will show you what they have before you sign up.

Minor Negatives:

  • Some of the niche categories aren't updated as regularly as others. Depending which niche you're looking at there can be a lot of content available or only a few DVDs.
  • While reviewing the site we did have difficulty downloading the WMV files although the MP4 worked fine. This is probably a temporary issue however it speaks to a maintenance issue that isn't good. Multiple users tried the WMV over the course of a couple days.

Bottom Line

A large archive of hardcore gay DVDs with daily updates & solid download/viewing options.

VideoBox Men delivers on some key elements that you want to see from a DVD download site with the sizable archive, daily updates, and varied collection. While they don't reach high-def levels on the videos they do have some specialty tools like the custom WMV clip creator tool. While the content is non-exclusive and somewhat of a mixed collection the positive points significantly outweigh the negatives.
