Final Score


Out of 100


  • An incredible huge collection of in-house shot tranny content.
  • A ton of beautiful t-girls from different ethnic backgrounds, types, ...
  • There are updates every Thursday.
  • The updates made are quite huge with A LOT of sets posted.
  • Very well, professionally shot with focus on niche lovers.
  • Sets are alphabetically arranged making it easier to search for a certain model.


  • Content of this site is not really exclusive (the sets are are from the sister sites of GroobyArchives such as LadyboyLadyboy and BrazilianTranssexuals).
  • Number of sets updated per week is hard to determine.
  • Lacks a good search or content categorization feature.
  • The design of the members area could use an update.
  • I would love to see the video quality to be increased further.
  • Photo size is okay but not thrilling (pictures are around 750x550 px).

Bottom Line

  • Grooby Archives is simply HUGE with a ton of great, exclusively shot sets that are fun to watch. There is really not much else to say about this one. It's not perfect and could use some work here and there but the content in both size and quality definitely makes up for that. For sure one of the best shemale porn sites on the Internet.

The Site
Grooby Archives is an archiving site and said to be the largest shemale site in the world. This is where the company catalogues the best content they have amassed across their range of sites.
Here you will see trannies from different countries - Asian, American, African, and European. Overflowing with hot gorgeous shemales, Grooby Archives is simply the best place to see the prettiest and horniest trannies around the globe.

An Incredibly Huge Collection. GroobyArchives has around 780,080 pictures and 882 videosets in its archive. Videos have a total run time of 12-14 minutes each.
A ton of beautiful t-girls. Grooby keeps 2,786 pretty shemale models in its roster. Beautiful trannies with different nationalities.
Updates. Every Thursday, Grooby Archives updates their site. They add around 24 photosets with and average of 102 photos each and 16 videosets.
Professionally Shot Content.
Sets are alphabetically arranged making it easier to search for a certain model. To keep it easy, the site arranged the galleries alphabetically and placed them inside the folder which you need to click when a member wants to browse the girls. This goes the same with the videos.

Content is exclusive but taken from other company sites. The contents are not actually exclusive for this site. They were taken from its sister sites like LadyBoy LadyBoy, Brazilian Transexuals, Shemale Yum, Black Tgirls, Shemales From Hell, and a lot more.
Number of sets updated per week is hard to determine. The site doesn't add the same number of sets every week. The number varies, probably depending on the update of the other sister sites.
Content is not dated. This makes it hard for the member to determine if a certain content is new or not. For one to know when the content was uploaded you need to go to the UPDATE page, click the “CLICK HERE FOR PREVIOUS UPDATE “ then keep on doing it till you find what you are looking for. It's quite tedious.
No search or content categorization feature. Neither search feature nor content categorization can be found in here. Which are what I believe a site this big needs. They kept it simple by making the members search for a piece of content through models. What if you only knew the models by face?
Members Area Design Needs A Makeover. It would help a lot if the members area had a more exciting design. Not just a plainly looking page with alphabetized folders. The folders look neat, but not that exciting enough.
I would love to see the video quality be increased further. The videos they offer are in AVI or WMV video format. AVI has a resolution of 640 x 434, while WMV has a 480x320 resolution. Nothing wrong with it for it is in very clear copy, but having HD videos here would be great.
No Zip File For Photosets. There's tons of images in here and it's quite clear why it needs to have zip file download format. Having 780,080 photos is not a joking matter when you start downloading it one by one!

Being the largest shemale site in the world, it is not a surprise if we see some flaws that needs a little attention. It's only normal to encounter such concerns and these concerns aren't actually permanent and can be fixed. The amazing thing about this site is its incredibly huge archive of content. Not only huge, but also good quality, with really entertaining content. I say you tranny lovers should give Grooby Archives a try.
