When Vivid says they are home to the hottest pornstars, they mean it! Pictures and hot, hardcore movies starring your favorite pornstars are delivered in streaming videos. There's loads of stuff here, but the caliber of the material will leave you a bit frustrated and wanting more. It's probably an effective way of getting people to spring for the studio's DVDs, though.
The video section boasts a considerable amount of stuff. There are 324 full-length DVDs and even though that's fewer than the last time we visited, it still translates into 1,296 scenes, which is a lot. The flicks cover your usual hardcore bases, such as blowjobs, doggy style, facials, interracial, etc., but there's no way to search the Vivid collection to find the specific smut you want. You'll have to peruse the pages of DVD covers.
When you click on a movie, you are taken to the flick's streaming page (which starts playing right away) and there is description of the film plus a listing of category tags, for example, cumshot, fingering, blonde, etc. You can also scroll through the images under the screen to select the scene you want.
The videos aren't downloadable and the stream quality tends to be average looking at best. It's one thing not to let me keep the vids on my hard drive, but it's quite another to post them online in less than stellar formats. Sure, they do quite well if you were shopping for a DVD to buy, but they don't satisfy as an end product.
It looks like every DVD comes with pictures, yielding 324 photo galleries. They are full of low and medium-res images. The pictures are glossy, professional spreads. There are no Zip files, so you'll have to save pics to your computer individually. You can learn more about the hotties in the vids by reading their bios in the model index.
Extras include links to live cams, a dating site and discounts on other porn paysites. It looks like they are adding three DVDs each month, but it's not clear just how often scenes are posted. Unfortunately, due to the low quality of the material, Vivid seems like a giant advertisement financed by its fans to sell them more DVDs.
