Review by Spencer

Released Apr 6, '13 , Written Apr 1, '13
Intro

VideoBox is up for review today, and if you've been around our site for very long, you've seen them at the top of our list for quite a while. We've reviewed the site several times over the past few years, and they always impress us with their options and features, plus just in how much you get for your money. It's even more impressive that these features were in place years ago as they were well ahead of the curve. That puts a lot of pressure on them, of course, but they don't mind. These guys are dedicated to their site, and they are dedicated to making sure it stays at the top. It's a DVD mega-site, and they're constantly evolving with new features and new studios to showcase. They're on version 3.0 for the site, which looks like it's here to stay. $12 a month gets you in the door with our special discount in place, and they currently boast over 15,000 DVDs.


The Pros

  Tons of DVD porn available here!!

Since they're a DVD mega-site, you can definitely expect big numbers here, and VideoBox does not disappoint. There are over 15,000 DVDs online now, with more coming in daily to keep those numbers rising. That puts the number of actual scenes at over 83,000. How many times can you even jack off in a day? If it takes you two scenes per jack, and you do that three times daily, it'd take you almost 38 years to see it all, not counting for any future growth.

  Updating all the time.

This past week has brought in 47 new DVDs, with an average of almost seven new movies per day. If you extrapolate an average of 5-6 scenes per DVD, you end up at over 250 new scenes per week. You won't get bored for a lack of content here, that's for damn sure.

  Great navigation features, tons of custom options.

Their setup is very slick. Last time I was here it was rather new, but they've worked out a lot of the kinks since then. You can choose what you want displayed, and what you want to disappear, right down to the scene info, the mid-sized flash player, etc., and all this is just on the main browsing page. The player page offers up menus you can show or hide that include all the scene/movie info you could ask for.

As for searching through content, just start clicking. They have a large list of categories to start with, and then individual scenes are tagged with even more categories at time. Mix, match, pick, and choose your way to your perfect filter. Maybe you're in the mood for a Latina giving a handjob outside. Boom, right there on the page you're already on, it auto-magically filters down to those specific scenes in their collection. If you want to get even more specific, head to the user-created clips area, where users tag content with things like "girl does the work," "tramp stamp," "lazy dog," or "hanging tits" that a normal search just wouldn't be able to accomplish.

  Nice download options available, including custom clips.

The standard video downloads come in three WMV quality options, and two MP4 options (one is for the iPhone or similar devices). The HD videos also add a third MP4 option.

From there, you can also create custom clips. You can do this two ways: in their streaming player, where you drag a slider to show where you want it to start and stop, or in their "I hate flash, please don't bash, just make a mish-mash" non-flash clip creator (I forgot the actual name, but it's close to that). Here, they provide a bunch of thumbnails from a scene, and you drag the start and stop points. You can download these clips, or save them to your stash to view for later online.

  TV options could be a hit.

In case you're used to the days where you could pop in a tape and watch some porn, you may feel a little jaded that computer screens are small, and maybe tough to share with your partner. They have an option to view the scenes on both an Apple TV or a Roku box. Both are about $99 (or cheaper if you want one of the lower-end Rokus), but I'd lean towards Roku as the go-to option. The Apple TV setup is a little clunky with the need to download the file, import it to iTunes on your computer, then stream it via AirPlay.

They have their own channel on Roku. It's not the most robust, but I like the direction they're headed. You can search by category or title, or just have a random video pop up for you. You can create your own "stash" on the Roku as well, though I don't think it integrates with your stash on their website. The quality isn't perfect, but it was pretty much as expected, and the ability to have a porn clip playing on your TV in under a minute was pretty fun for sure.

Other Good Stuff:

  • $12 a month gets you a ton of content and features here, which is a discount off their usual $15 price tag. You may find a couple random sites a bit cheaper, but not many, and they definitely will not be as robust.
  • Included with your membership is their mobile version of the site, which will let you browse and watch all their content right on your phone.
  • They are now offering some HD videos from those studios that have them. They look pretty good, but only come in one option for now. Still, it's nice to see the addition.
  • For a DVD site, their quality is pretty decent, even on their SD material. They get the quality as high as possible with the content they're dealing with.
  • Their streaming player was a pioneer back in the day for what you could do with flash. It may not be as ground-breaking today, but it's still a solid player. There are two quality options, plus filmstrip navigation, and everything just works fast.
  • You can create your own personal stash or porn here. Add in anything you want, from pornstars, to scenes, to DVDs, to your custom clips that you created. You can categorize them by folder if you want even, and then your perfect collection is always waiting for you here.
  • They have a pretty nice recommendation engine that will help you find similar scenes that they think you might like.

The Cons

  No exclusive material.

As with most DVD sites, the content here is mostly non-exclusive. They have their premium channels (see below), but they'll cost you extra, and still aren't even 100% exclusive. A lot of this content can be found elsewhere, so hopefully you're not too picky with your porn.

  Can be overwhelming at first.

With options and features can come confusion. There are a lot of little buttons crammed into the new user interface; there are so many, in fact, that they decided to make tutorial videos on how to use them all exactly. The videos definitely helped, and they're all useful, but the initial shock may be a bit much for some people. You'll have to immerse yourself here for a bit to become more familiar with everything.

Minor Negatives:

  • Not all of their search categories are available at first glance. They have the big main list up top, but you'll see that some individual videos have even more options. For example, they have a DP option right off the bat, but most of those videos are also tagged with the MMF threesome tag. How can you just search/find this MMF threesome tag from the get go exactly? I don't see a way.

The other
  • They offer seveb premium channels in addition to their main DVD content. These are scenes from Vivid, Kink, Reality Kings, Evil Angel and more. It provides some more original content, but it comes at an extra cost to you unfortunately. At least there's the option!

Bottom Line

As long as you don't mind DVD porn, this is one of the most robust and interesting sites out there.

VideoBox is a geek's porn dreamland, with a ton of content, updates, and technology all at your fingertips, and for a great price to boot. About the only thing that would hold anybody away would be the non-exclusive DVD content they provide. Even then, they're always working on adding more premium content to the mix if it's something you want (and will pay extra for).

Their site continues to be surprisingly customizable, and though that can make it a little complicated at first, I think it's worth the effort to learn. It feels very modern, with just the right amount of futuristic web programmery to keep things interesting. If you're a fan of tinkering with computers and settings, you should feel right at home.

All the basics remain the same with a huge collection and tons of updates. The discounted $12 price tag is definitely spot on as it gets you in cheaper than most other porn sites you'll come across. I'm still a huge fan, and I will continue to use VideoBox as my benchmark against which all other competitors are judged in the genre.
