This is actually my first time writing a live cam review, so hopefully I cover everything. I'm a little nervous that I picked Cams.com to be my first one since this site looks massive! I do have to say, though, the design and navigation are pretty good, so I'm hoping the first one will be painless and I'll be an old pro in no time.
As I said, the design of Cams.com is clean and navigation seems simple. The tabs along the top of the page can get you to the homepage, to the online models (just under 600 models online at this moment), group shows and recorded shows. There's also a list search filters along the left-hand side of the page, like age, ethnicity, fetishes, body type and so on.
Each model picture has the nickname, age, gender and country of origin of the performer. There are so many ways to interact with these babes that my head is kind of spinning. Click on a chick and you can chat with her for free. She doesn't usually do all that much, maybe fondle herself (clothed) a bit and talk a little dirty. You can pay to take her private and there she'll do (hopefully) all the naughty things you ask of her. I suppose this free chat would be the place to ask if she's willing to do certain things.
You're also able to join a babe's group show for a price and there's right above her cam window is the remaining number of seats. You get about a 10-minute show for a discounted price. I also noticed there is a "voyeur" option. This allows you to pop in and watch a chick's private show for a per-minute fee. You can only watch and give a tip. For text chat, audio or any form of interaction, you have to use the private chat option.
There are some cams that are marked HD and those look great. They aren't blurry or choppy. That said, some other cams are mediocre and had some stilted action. I found even some of the HD cams were a little pixilated at times, but that didn't really detract from the busty, chubby honey who has shaking her tits in my face or that slim gal who was toying her asshole. The setting vary from couches and beds to what looks like a set-up location. Most of the cams I was looking at have sound and some have the cam2cam option.
There's a great variety among the performers. There are blondes, redheads, dark-haired chicks, gals with glasses, lots of makeup as well as the honeys with a natural look. You can read bios for the cam models, see some screenshots from shows and you can check out recorded shows of theirs.
Last but not least, let's discuss pricing. The cheapest per-minute fee I saw was about $1.50 and the highest was $4.99, but most models were asking about $2.99/minute. Just be aware that although you can see how much cash you have at the top of the page, there is no onscreen timer counting down your money. The recorded shows cost about $0.99 a minute or you can pay about five bucks for the whole thing at once. There are actually over 75,500 recorded shows to check out.
Besides just paying per-minute fees, you also have the option of shelling out a monthly fee and upgrading to a premium member status. This gets you some extra things, like discounts on live shows. You apparently also get more attention from the chicks as well as priority customer support. You can also pay a little extra and join a babe's fan club, which gains you a discount on her shows. These are all great options, but I would suggest checking Cams.com out on the per-minute scales first.
