Content:

Sandra Shine Live has been online since 2005, and I believe the collection has gone through a few different reinventions since then. The collection event as large as you might imagine from a site that's been around for this long, but there's a decent amount to see here at 140 videos at 205 photo galleries with video, photo, or extra updates coming a few times each week. In addition to the core video and photos sections, members also get access to a "backstage" section where you can access over 200 updates. These are mixed between videos and photos and show you some behind the scenes action.

Unfortunately, the word "live" in the title of this site doesn't seem to be indicative of anything you'll find inside. Sandra doesn't perform live webcam shows, and there's not even a way to chat with her live as far as I can tell. The main collection here consists of the video and photos sections. Each of these features Sandra Shine as well as some other well-known porn stars such as Blue Angel, Cindy Hope, Eve Angel, Samantha Bentley, Sandee Westgate, Sophie Moone, and Zafira. In addition to the video, photo, and backstage sections, members can also access Sandra's forum, where she is reasonably active, and her diary, which she updates with fairly short blurbs and pictures.

Although the scenes includes solo, lesbian, and hardcore sex, Sandra does not appear in any of the hardcore movies but rather sticks to solo masturbation and lesbian scenes. The materials are done in a very professional porn style with all the benefits of professional lighting and cameras, attention to hair, makeup, and clothing, and swanky indoor and outdoor locations.

While there is some variation, most of the videos here seem to be offered at around 768 x 432 pixels with bitrates of between 1500 and 2000 kbps. These are about what I would consider average quality for new release materials these days, and they would certainly be more impressive if the quality level were bumped up to something truly HD. The quality level of the pictures is a bit more consistent, and the images are available at up to 1500 pixels on the long side if you download the gallery in a ZIP file and may be viewed at up to 600 pixels on the long side from within the members area.

Features & Navigation:

Although it's missing hard facts about the size of the collection, the tour pages here are very well designed and give potential members plenty of opportunities to check out streaming video trailers and preview images of the materials they can expect to find inside.

The members area continues the same basic color and graphics scheme from the tour pages, and the site is fairly basic in terms of navigation and features. A menu at the top of the page will take you to all of the various sections of the site including the video and photo pages, a list of Sandra's girlfriends who appear on the site, the backstage materials, Sandra's diary and forum, and more. The video and photos sections offer a tax system with keywords to click like bikini, stockings, and lesbian, but that's about the extent of the search tools available here.

One area where Sandra Shine Live is definitely lacking are the video access options. These flicks aren't available to stream at all which is a pretty big deal on its own, but on top of that, each video scene here is offered for download only in a single file format, MOV, and you'll have to extract the MOV file from an ZIP file before you can view it. I'm not sure about the reason for this seemingly unnecessary step.

Conclusion:

I'd like to see the ability to stream the videos added here, and a little bump in quality is never a bad thing, but Sandra Shine Live is definitely a must see site if you are a fan of this sexy Hungarian. Although there is no live interaction as the name implies, there is some interaction available with Sandra here, and you can add four additional sites to your package for only about five dollars more per month.
