When a site says it has the "most beautiful and immersive adult POV videos ever," you tend to stand up and take notice. And that, combined with the drop-dead-gorgeous models on POVD.com's homepage, was more than enough to entice me into giving this one a test drive. It also didn't hurt that they promised 3D surround sound, 1080p HD video, and positively raunchy threesomes. Yes, if POVD can halfway live up to its tour, I'd say it's going to be one hell of a site. So, let's find out if it can, shall we?

Upon my initial login, the first thing that struck was just how understated the main members' page was. The layout was reminiscent of what you'd find on an independent solo amateur site — except the graphics were, obviously, quite a bit more polished. Still, though, after the sleek tour and words like "innovative" and "cutting edge," being thrown around, I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted with such a user-friendly layout.
Now, I find the subtleties and nuances of modern web design as interesting as the next fella, but noticing a "Models" button in the main menu, I couldn't help but drift back fond memories of lusting after the seemingly flawless babes on the tour page. So, I did what any man with a working penis would do: I scoped out the talent. There's currently 14 models on the site, and most of them are names that any true porn fan has likely already heard of — babes like Dillon Harper and Natalia Starr. A few things they all have in common, though, are immense beauty, youth, and awesome bedroom prowess. Their diversity stems from their backgrounds, and I have a hunch a lot of you will appreciate the mix of Europeans as well as even more exotic babes. I know I did.
But if there was one thing they seemed most proud of on their tour page, it was the high quality of their video. Well, I'm happy to report that streaming video is available in both HD and a more dialup friendly SD. What's more, there's 3 HD download options, ranging from 1080p to 480p, and in three formats, too: Windows Media, MPG, and MPEG-4. And to top it all off, download speeds were reliably fast, always hovering somewhere above 1.5 megs-per-second. Streaming, likewise, lightning fast without a buffer hiccup in sight.
Another nice touch was that each scene has a rather lengthy — by "episode" standards — running time. The average is around 25 minutes, which is plenty of times for me to build up to an intense orgasm. Speaking of which, scenes feature all sorts of sordid activities, with a heavy focus on FFM three-ways. Very, salty stuff.
Some scenes also have attached galleries, both in "screen cap" and "HD" quality. The latter looks exquisite, and sports a resolution of 844px × 1,500 pixels. And, while they are watermarked, the lighting and excellent posing more than make up for that. The screen caps, on the other hand, are — surprise, surprise — mediocre. But with an average of 300 plus high-res images, who cares? The only downside is that not all videos feature galleries. It seems with the newer updates, there's a slight delay.
On that note, the videos are not without their flaws. While they're definitely, for the most part, clear and crisp, they won't be winning any awards for cinematography anytime soon. Worse still, only one of the options listed as HD actually is HD. The other two sport a rather mediocre resolution and, frankly, don't exhibit that vibrancy and vivid detail one comes to expect from HD.
But if POVD.com has a chink in its armor, it is, without a doubt, the current lack of content. This is, however, understandable given their young age. Nevertheless, until they've done some growing, I just don't see how their current price of admission can be justified. I mean, there's not even any bonus content here. Normally i wouldn't complain about that, but with so little original content, it wouldn't hurt.
POVD.com lives up to its promises of high-end video featuring equally high-end women — and in compromising positions, too, I might add — but, sadly, is still too new to provide enough content to warrant its, admittedly, damn-near reasonable price of admission. Given time, however, I'm confident that this site will be a true bargain connoisseurs and straight-up perverts alike. So, keep your eyes peeled, friends.
