» Review by Becky:
If you've surfed a free porn site or any sort of porn link list in the last 11 years or so, you've almost certainly heard of karasxxx.com. This is one of the first porn sites I ever saw, and it looks like it's still growing strong. Despite the fact that I've been seeing Kara's XXX around for years, I've never actually been inside, so let's take a look around and see what they have to offer here at this huge hardcore mega-site.

This is one of the first porn sites I ever saw, and it looks like it's still growing strong.

When I arrived in the members area, I was pretty surprised to see that Karas XXX is essentially just like the DVD download sites that have been popping up recently, except that they have a very large photo section in addition to the videos. There is one other major difference here, and unfortunately this one is a negative - and a big one at that. The flicks here are offered for streaming only, so there is no way to save these movies to your computer. That alone drops the value here significantly.

...Karas XXX is essentially just like the DVD download sites that have been popping up recently, except that they have a very large photo section in addition to the videos.

Another issue at karasxxx is the video quality. It's not terrible, but it's not exactly great either. Since all of these scenes are taken from DVDs, offering them in at least a somewhat higher quality shouldn't be too difficult. As it stands, the flicks can be streamed in WMV format in three quality levels, with the highest only being around 320x240 pixels and a bitrate of around 700 kbps. The flicks look OK if left small, be as you might expect, enlarging them much is going to make them blurry. In total, there are 1380 DVD titles available to stream on the site, but I couldn't find any update information or anything else to indicate that this DVD collection is growing for sure.

I can say for sure that the photo section at karasxxx is growing, however. The sets are dated and the most recent additions are listed at the top of the main picture page, and it looks like there are at least a couple of new sets coming each day. There are three sizes offered for each picture set, which is nice, but honestly I'd rather have ZIP files than variable sizes, and ZIPs aren't offered, unfortunately. The site states that there are 274,588 images in the picture section, and at an average of 60 images per set, that's about 4,575 photo shoots, a very generous amount.

A few years ago, karasxxx.com would have been a practically unbeatable bargain, but these days there are sites offering more DVD titles, five daily updates, DVD quality video and allow you to download the titles to keep, and you can get all of that for about a fourth of what karasxxx.com charges for a 30 day membership. Unless you just must have a large collection of photos with your DVDs and are willing to sacrifice the ability to download and pay a heavy premium for it, I just don't think this 11 year old site can keep up. I hope to see them make some improvements here so that this well known site will be around for 11 more years. The tour offers a free password, but my understanding is that it only gets you into the members area, but doesn't actually allow you to view any content so I'm not sure what good it would do you unless you just want to check out what's available before buying. In my opinion, however, that should be able to be accomplished with a good tour. A 30 day membership is around $39.
