The Black Alley Review by Vanessa The Black Alley

Review by Vanessa

Released Mar 4, '13 , Written Feb 26, '13
Intro

We first reviewed Asian 4 You back in 2005, and although I'm not sure why it shut-down exactly, I was sorry to see it go. Then in 2007 we did a review of this site and Asian 4 You's predecessor, The Black Alley, which has a somewhat unassuming name, but carries on the Asian4You "legend" by offering some of the same hot Asian chicks in a new and updated format. All content is exclusive, high quality, and downloadable (daily limit enforced). A monthly membership will set you back close to $30 bucks per month currently, but gives complete access to the archive of now more than 227 models in 568 shoots.


The Pros

  Exclusive Content/Hot Asian Girls.

This collection is a combination of what used to be Asian 4 You and now is being updated by The Black Alley. Currently there are more than 232 TBA models in addition to the 186 A4U models and each are listed separately in their respective areas. In general this is a softcore photography site with stunning Asian chicks and beautiful scenery to set them off. You will mostly find things like sexy outfits and nudity spreads, bedroom scenes, outdoor poses, light bondage, toys and more.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Quality looks good. Pics are nice and large, offered up to 2000p. They look sharp. Video quality looks pretty good too, although with bitrate speeds still hovering around 2000k, there definitely is still more to be desired.
  • Updates come often enough. This week alone 3 new image galleries were added and last week 5 new image galleries and 3 new videos were updated.
  • Users who stick around for more than 2 months gain access to the VIP Zones offering additional bonus content.
  • Some models have bios and quick stat info.
  • ZIPs are offered for the image sets.

The Cons

  Not Enough Browse/User Options.

The site design is way too simplistic and doesn't offer hardly any content information or browse options. The models are listed in alphabetical order, but there is no bio information given on most of them. Between lack of content information and bio information, TBA just feels completely without personality and substance, aside from the beautiful Asian girls. You also can't browse by keywords, categories or specifics.

  Not Enough Download & Viewing Options.

Not only is there a daily download limit in place but videos are download-only, without the option for in-browser streaming and your only file format for downloading is AVI. Most sites offer either WMV and MP4, often times both, along with options for quality.

  Video Quality Could be Better.

Although the previous review from Duke mentions that he came across at least one video with HD specs, I didn't find any. The videos I downloaded offered 2000k bitrate speeds at best and simply looked average. Overall quality could stand to be improved when it comes to the videos here.

Minor Negatives:

  • Some models offer bio info, but most do not.
  • A daily download limit of 4GB is in place.
  • Background music is heard in most videos.

Bottom Line

Hot Asian models featured in softcore content but the site is too basic.

It's clear I have some mixed feelings about this site. While The Black Alley does a great job at bringing member's very nice quality image content with new updates being added regularly, they unfortunately lack quite a bit in the personality department and video quality is starting to fall behind. There is not enough model or content information. and download/viewing options are minimal. The overall site design looks nice, it just doesn't offer many features. The price is no almost $30 bucks per month, which makes this somewhat of an expensive join even if you are a big fan of softcore Asian material.
