BlackMenDigital currently features only 5 movies (3 of which are feature length) but 340 photo galleries. Because these are magazine shoots, the galleries are very small, with never more than about 9 images in each of them. There was definitely not '50,000 images' and '68 videos' as claimed on the site's tour, which was otherwise really impressive, detailed and well designed.
The members' area navigation was fine to a point. All of the content is dated on the site and all of the models' names are included too. But there is no models' index and practically no background information about any of the galleries or the videos. It was pretty disappointing in fairness, and the layout was just a bland template which paled in comparison to the tour area. It should be the other way round!
The photo galleries can all be downloaded in .ZIP files, with the highest resolution images sized at 692x1024px. The videos however do have quite a few options with them. In terms of the streaming versions, they can often be streamed in high, medium and low quality .WMV and Flash Player formats with the best quality versions playing at 640x480px. There are also .MP4 and .WMV downloads on offer too, with much the same resolutions available.
I think it was probably reasonable of me to expect that the presentation of BlackMenDigital.com in its members' area would have been as glossy and well presented as its tour would be, but I would be sorely disappointed. It was really a question of whether the actual content could salvage this site. As expected, this is an entirely softcore site that relies on quality magazine shoots for its content as well as several videos that I couldn't really identify the background of.
The models are stunning though, I have to admit. This really is a collection of some of the most beautiful models around. The models are not all ebony - the presence of Coco Austin (Ice-T's stunning wife) and Vida Guerra stand out in that regard, but the demographic is perfectly pitched. It's disappointing that there isn't the weight of content promised here though, and no bonus sites either.

Despite really enjoying main of the photo shoots and models that Black Men Digital.com, by misjudging its own volume of content it may leave people more disappointed than they should have been. It may cover many of the magazine's shoots adequately, but it doesn't really do much more than that, capturing very little of the print version's qualities or tone. It's just a collection of galleries and a few videos, and that's all. Just as well then that the galleries are so consistently sexy. Visit Black Men Digital.
