Needlive.com is a great-looking and very user-friendly site with oodles of features to explore. As with Smutcams.com, there tend to be less models online compared to some of the other top sites in this category. However, the quality of the performers there are is high. With some great quality video streaming cams, competitive prices and a friendly format, Needlive.com has much to recommend it.
Unlike many other chat room sites, you do not have to register in order to interact with the performers. However, as a guest it is very unlikely that a performer will pay you any attention. As usual, signing up is free and gets you access to a variety of basic features. For example, you can create a Favorites List, send and receive messages and arrange to receive alerts when a performer is online.
The performers on Needlive.com are of a high standard, as you would expect of sites in the Top 10. Most are attractive, friendly and eager to please. Unlike some of the other top sites, we noticed a few browsable categories that we had not come across before. One problem however, is that you often find that some of the categories have only one or two performers online and sometimes none at all. Therefore, whilst the categories are fairly wide-ranging, your selection is may be restricted depending on when you log on.
As a member you can chat for free with performers for as long as you want. It is unlikely that you will see any real action or get any attention from a performer unless you buy credit and go into private chat. The pricing structure is much clearer and less complex than many of its competitors and you do get the feeling that Needlive.com is being upfront about costs, whereas on some other sites it can be more difficult to find such information. This is one of the things that makes Needlive.com especially appealing.
Thumbnails contain info pertaining to the performer's name, languages spoken, whether online, star rating, and video streaming quality. This is useful in deciding who to choose and quicker than going to the bio-page. It was a little confusing though at first glance to know which thumbnails were online/offline. It turns out that when a model is online it will display 'Free Chat' below the thumbnail. If offline, you will be directed to their bio-page. Some new models offer discount chat as low as $0.99 per minute advertised on their thumbnails. However, you may not find quite as many rock-bottom offers as you would on some other sites. Judging by price alone can be a little misleading as you could end up spending more on a cheaper performer who drags it out so you spend far longer in their chat room and don't enjoy the show as much as if you had spent a little more. It's therefore important to check out different performers and see what they will and won't do before you commit.
The video streaming does vary but there seem to be relatively few cams whose streaming is jerky and pixellated. Needlive.com has its fair share of High Definition and live audio cams to choose from in order to get the most out of your chat room experience, but maybe not quite so many as the top sites. You can also talk with relationship counsellors, strangely logical on a site like this, but try explaining to your partner. Also, what kind of relationship counsellor has a pair of eyes painted on their butt cheeks?
Using Needlive.com is an immersive experience. You are encouraged as a member to personalise the site and let the performers get to know you. It's down to you how involved you become. Unless you are a regular user many of the features may be unnecessary. A lot of space is devoted to members creating a site presence and allowing performers to get to know you. However, the question of whether the average member wants to do this is questionable. However, if you do get to chat with a performer regularly it may benefit you to create a profile in order to give the performer some idea of what to provide, your turn-ons, special requests, etc. Other embellishments, such as sending virtual gifts to performers may seem a little unnecessary to some. Whilst it may be true that sending a gift to the performer of your choice may sweeten her/him and persuade them to give you that little bit extra in a show, you should be getting a good enough show by spending your credits.
You can comment on the performers on their profile page. This is a good way of informing other members about a performer's' good/bad points and also for you to learn more about a host before selecting them and is more informative than a lot of sites that just award stars or marks out of ten.A little more effort might have been devoted to search and browsing options, which are more limited than other sites. For example, when you click on a category there are no nested categories within to narrow your search further.
All things considered, Needlive.com might not be quite as good as the sites at the very top of our list, and you need to be a little more patient in coming to terms with how it works. Nonetheless, it caters to a variety of users, looks good and delivers great chat rooms with excellent live streaming on the button. It's therefore well worth taking a look at.
