Over the last couple of months, we’ve featured quite a few Direct Download Link (DDL) forums specializing in HD content in this blog (HDMania, x264-BB, HD-UNIT3D to name a few) . HD-Dump is a brand new entrant to this particular niche and so far the site has done pretty well. It indexes all sorts of HD (and some non HD) content ranging from 720p, 1080p movies, BRRip, MicroHD and untouched TrueHD movies, TV shows to documentaries, anime and even sports. This includes scene releases as well as user uploads not usually found on the usual places such as scene torrent trackers, etc. HD-Dump is a clean forum with no advertisements, zero password protected files and no masked or encrypted download links. For those wanting to get in, registrations are currently open.
It’s been a few months since HD-Dump launched – there hasn’t been much hype about it in the community but the forum has slowly been gaining momentum. It currently has 1700+ members and 1200+ threads – not too bad for a niche forum just starting up. The site seems to be run by an experienced staff panel who’ve had previous experience with moderating other DDL forums. According to one of the site’s administrators, HD-Dump was created to serve as a forum dedicated to user friendliness and cleanliness:
Sick of password trouble, RARs inside RARs, and wasting time searching for a single movie among duplicate threads?
Here's what you'll find at HD-Dump: none of those common download annoyances for end-users.
1. No passwords whatsoever allowed in any files.
2. All files must be single extraction.
3. Each movie has only 1 thread. You want to post your links? Post it in the existing thread.
Having a one-thread per movie rule makes a forum much easier to browse and much easier on the eyes. When looking for a specific movie, you shouldn't have to go through a dozen threads to find what you're looking for.
As mentioned earlier, HD-Dump tracks a lot of HD content including 720p, 1080p movies as well as untouched, TrueHD Blu Ray movies. In addition, the site indexes some non HD content such as BRRip and MicroHD movies as well as HDTV shows. A screenshot capturing some of the available content categories can be seen below:
HD-Dump seems to be very well maintained and moderated, so movie threads are kept updated, and dead links are removed almost immediately upon being reported. The forum is ad-free and very clean. There is little limitation to what mirror links can be posted (as long as the links are direct), although there is zero tolerance for spamming and posting infected content. You won't find too many Rapidshare links at HD-Dump right now, but Hotfile, Megaupload, Netload and even Fileserve seem to be pretty popular here.
Registrations for HD-Cump are currently open – if you are interested, you may create an account without the need for an invite code.
