Review date: March 2015
While VideoBox Men no longer updates it still offers 11,000 scenes from nearly 2400 DVDs to stream and download. Get ready for the unsung, but well-hung, superstars of medium quality porn studios from all over the world. The "Something For Everyone" rule applies here too: there are over 200 studios and 60 different categories to choose from. The site is also easy to browse, there are good search features and you can even custom edit the downloads. On the other hand, quality does vary a lot, depending mostly on the vintage of a movie's release date.
The VideoBox Men tour is a mirror-type so you can see everything the site has on offer. You can browse through the DVD listings by title, category, studio or popularity. Look at thumbnail video captures for every scene and experience how the neat clip selection tool works. Click the FAQ for details on what you'll get for your money.
The design of VideoBox Men is clean and uncluttered. Navigation is very straightforward, with selection boxes for the "niches", movies and scenes located in the toolbar across the top of the page. A new tool is the "Flow" option which presents an entire grid of thumbnail-sized videos flowing across the page. You can easily switch the view of your search results between DVD titles, all scenes, or your favorites. Just remember, when you're selecting a "niche" or category like "Twinks" or "Toys" using the tool bar in the left column, you must exclude your current niche before proceeding to a different niche, otherwise your search will be for "Twinks" and "Toys".
The DVD page displays six large thumbnails for each scene on the DVD. A very nifty feature of VideoBox Men is the "Custom Clip" tools, in which you can drag and drop thumbnails to designate exactly where you want a scene to start and end, and then stream or download that custom clip.
The Men and the Action
Because VideoBox Men works with many different studios, the model types and themes cross the whole spectrum. You won't find titles from major studios on this site but there is a large selection of smaller and amateur studios to choose from. It's best to spend some time surfing around to see if enough of the models turn your crank to make the site worth joining.
Inside you'll find the big-dicked Europeans of Cadro Films, the hot-blooded Latinos of Alexander Pictures, the hilarious plots and very hot twinks of PZP Studios, Blue Alley Studio's nasty "Cum" series, classic Le Salon titles, and many, many Pacific Sun titles. While none of the content on VBM is exclusive, these videos from various smaller players are plenty to keep the budget-minded porn monkey happy.
Your video selection streams automatically in the embedded Flash player at reasonably good quality. Or you can download in MP4 in either a DVD quality or a "High" quality file and these look very good in playback.
Since the videos are from so many studios we really can't generalize except to say that with 11,000 scenes to choose from the really hot ones require a bit of searching. This is where the VideoBox Men rating system comes into play: always click the "Popularity" sort option to get the titles that have been top-rated, or go to a list of what's available from your favorite studio.
There are almost 2,400 full-length DVD titles making up a total of almost 10,875 scenes on this site. There used be a new DVD added every day, then that slowed to 5 new scenes per week and by late 2013 updates ceased.
Video will stream in Flash or download in MP4 format. The videos are standard definition, 640x480 pixels in size with a bitrate of around 1500 kbps.
Video Box Men offers a large variety of lesser known studio flicks at an almost unbelievable price, wrapped up in a user-friendly design with cutting-edge selection tools. The big minuses: updates stopped in late 2013, there's nothing high-definition and quality varies.
