The site’s title implies your ability to download everything from the hugest collection of porn DVD ever exposed on the web. It doesn’t refer to any particular niche, because there is a plenty of niches on this megasite. Hardcore, Anal, Hentai, BBW, Gay, Homemade, Squirting, Shemale and dozens of other niches are exposed here, so it’s impossible to categorize the whole site. It’s just a Mega Site with thousands of DVD scenes.
There is no doubt that you can download anything from Download Pass network, but is that such a distinctive feature? The title doesn’t really define the concept of this megasite, it doesn’t imply that there are thousands of DVD scenes here. Thus, I don’t find the title quite relevant to the site’s concept; it could be anything else with the same result. It seems that the megasite was designed as a union of a plenty of porn sites, exposing DVD scenes, though most of their titles are gone now.
Actually, there is no typical scene on Download Pass: the diversity is too high. However, you can usually expect something rather conventional for porn DVD scenes: depending on the category, it can be a typical anal sex scene, a group sex scene or a lesbian scene. Earlier scenes have playtime of around 5-10 minutes, while the recent ones tend to be at least 25-30 minutes long. It makes no sense to try to construct a typical scene representation, because they’re too different.
+ Outstanding amount of content
The number of scenes you get on Download Pass is just outstanding. There are over 45,922 original scenes from over 8,000 DVD on this site, and approximately 22,683 of them have both video and photo set included. The rest has just the video. Average video playtime varies greatly, but it tends to increase, and now it equals to approximately 30 minutes per scene. Photo sets have from 2 to 400 photos, with an average of 250 as in March 2016. Scenes also contain screen capture galleries.
+ Very nice quality
Though you do not usually expect anything better than standard 480p videos from DVD sites, this one is a good exclusion. More or less recent videos on Download Pass have Full HD and HD quality formats included in the list: the best quality you can expect is 1080p mp4 video with over 4,000 kbps bitrate and outstanding 59 fps. Despite the relatively low bitrate, it looks astounding, crystal clear and real. Other formats include 144, 240, 360 and 720p videos; you can adjust the quality for streaming and downloads. Photos here are as well nice: up to 1600x1200 pixel resolution, with good lighting and foreshortening.
+ Stable weekly or more often updates
Despite the greatness of its collection, Download Pass never stops updating. Though it doesn’t provide daily updates (which would be excellent), it still adds at least one new scene every 4-5 days; sometimes it adds several new scenes within one week. There is no update schedule, but stable weekly updates is an unquestionable plus. Bonus content you get (see below) updates even more often: you can get several new scenes every day.
+ Nice and very functional design without ads
There are almost no ads (if any at all) inside Download Pass member zone. Visual design is mild and nice: you won’t get distracted, though there are a lot of elements; they are designed logically and naturally. The powerful tag filtering system works just like advanced search; it allows to combine multiple tags, plus there are several rare sorting options (by playtime, for example). The site also has nice interactive component: you can comment, rate videos and add them to Favorites. Recently viewed scenes automatically appear in the according list. Embedded player supports quality adjustment and even different playback speed.
+ Huge load of bonus content
Download Pass includes 6 more porn sites you can enjoy as a member: Tranny.com, Gay Ultra, Teen Girls, Mature Women, Lethal Hardcore and Exploited Ex-GF. It grants amazing diversity to the site’s content. If you want more, go to the Uploads section and behold: there are 270,000+ of user-submitted scenes.
- No model information in profiles
There are over 15,600 model entries in the model index of the network, including shemale and gay models. You can conveniently sort and filter these to get to the porn star you like. However, once you enter the model profile, you’ll see that there is no model information, except for the list of scenes. No stats are specified, no description is written for any model, and there are apparently no biographies and no contact detail.
Expectations vs Reality
There is no reason to blame Download Pass for any exaggeration or concealment of information: everything they promise on the landing page and during the free tour is impersonated inside the member zone. Often you even get more, than they’ve promised.
Prices are quite standard: $29.95 monthly or $119.95 once a year. Avoid trial membership: it costs $1 for 2 days, but grants only limited access to a few scenes, and on expiration it starts rebilling at $39.95 every month. As well, beware of the pre-checked cross sales: they’re no good for you. You can pay for the membership via credit card, PayPal or Sepa.
Download Pass is a huge collection of DVD, available online. It probably has everything a regular porn fan can demand from a porn site: hundreds of exposed niches, thousands of DVD and regular updates. You should at least check it out, for your own sake. Such a great collection should not stay unnoticed.
