Review of Maniac Pass:
I'm a maniac, a maniac, for porn! I'm downloading like I've never downloaded before. I just feel like singing when I come across a site with a huge quantity of porn. I know, these sites aren't exactly few and far between. In fact, I've been to quite a few of them in the past few months. However, I still love to download porn, and a site like Maniac Pass suits me well for accomplishing that task.
Maniac Pass is another DVD archive site. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, the whole idea is to take slightly aged, commercially available DVDs and put them on a paid website. You download the movies by scene, and get a ton of porn content. You make out because there is a lot of porn to be downloaded. The site makes out, because they don't even need to come up with their own content, but they still can please their customers. It really is a win-win. I've said it many times, however- if you do a site like this, you really need to be on point, because with all the competiton out there- it is easy to have your site fall short.
One unique thing about Maniac Pass that you will notice right off the bat is that the site has a weird split. First of all, there are several subsites, with genre specific themes. For example, you can go into the Indian Sex Videos site, and see some different Indian videos. You can go into the BBW section and see the same. There are tons of these sites. You can also browse the movies by the box fronts, like on many sites such as this. I like both set ups, but I thought it was weird that the site employed both of these. That may cause some initial confusion, but once you get an understanding of it, the setup is actually quite good. The site works like many similar sites, where you can filter by actors as well as categories.
With the theme of the site, it goes without saying that videos are the biggest highlight here. You ger three basic thumbnails for each scene. These thumbnails aren't extraordinary, but they get the job done for the most part. You can get a decent idea of what the set is all about and whether you want to download it or not. There are three video options for each scene: high, medium, and low quality. All three are only available in full WMV format. The site will give you the length of the scene as well as the size of the video you are about to download. For the most part, the video sizes are pretty average- nothing extra huge here.
As far as the quality goes, the videos look pretty good. Keep in mind that these are commercially available videos and with that, you are going to get variations throughout the site. Different studios use different types of camerawork, different angle, and some are just stylistically different. Therefore, it is hard to make any generalizations about anything here. Just keep in mind that this is more like going to a library of porn versus going to a speciality book store- I guess that is the best comparison I can think of here. The actual conversion to WMV looks really good, but each video will vary depending on the producer!
This being a video site, pictures aren't really focused on. They do offer screenshots of their videos, which is a lot more than some similar sites offer. You can also download them all in a ZIP file if you desire. This is a nice extra which some DVD archive sites don't bother with- and it can also be helpful if you don't find the three main thumbnails a good enough preview to download a set or not.
The site claims to have 3554 movies, which I think can be pretty accurate given what I have seen, but I can't count out that many! That said, you will find yourself limiting that a bit- but still a nice amount of content. With a new movie added daily, you really can't ask for a much better value.
Maniac Pass does indeed deliver! Outside of some ads around the main page, and some useless links on the bottom bar, I really can't find much to complain about. They deliver pretty well and are one of the best DVD Archive sites I've seen!
