The general layout and set-up of the archive here was really good. I liked the way it was organised by decades but also the fact that there was an overall updates page too. But there are issues here. Inside those indexes, there really is no way of finding anything specific. No tagging is used on any of the galleries and videos, plus not even the models are named a lot of the time. There is a models index, however, and this is actually superbly detailed and informative. There are some improvements though such as easy to find top categories and quick access to the most popular content. A mixed bag, really.
As you might expect, none of the videos here are of HD quality but, considering the age of some of them, they still looked very good indeed. The download speeds were good but there were really no options with how to view them beyond the one download and streaming version you get. Image sets are all available for ZIP download - that said, the scans of text-heavy pages are a little hard to read as they're often not big enough.
I do love some retro porn and PrivateClassics.com has perhaps more to potentially offer on that front than almost any other porn company around. The main issue for me was not with the content, obviously. My issue was that there wasn't enough information here. With the history behind this company, I want to know more about the shoots here, some of which are legendary within the porn business.
It's just a personal thing, I guess. Most people will probably be more than happy with what they get here, but I am interested in porn history and I think there is so much here that we could potentially be hearing about. Even so, like I say, the archive here is pretty awesome. It's good to see attention being paid to all decades at once as well.

I am a huge fan of Private and a huge fan of Private Classics.com. Certainly, there are aspects about it I would like to see improved and brought to the table, but this is a really enjoyable and nostalgic look at a company that deserves every ounce of respect that is afforded to it. Fans of retro porn and content from yesteryear really should not be stopping by at this one without getting a subscription. Visit Private Classics.
