    "It's an ok VPN, especially if you're desperate!"

    December 5, 2012  |   By Sunsetlover


    Not sure about the other reviews here lately, "is it a review, is it an ad? is it a review, is it an ad?" I've tried 4 VPNs in the last 12 months, so I know how to compare them and what to expect. The pros are: Lots of servers in several countries (however, some of them are dead). Also, fast connections and reconnections (not the server speeds, just the connection). Pretty good and fast customer service.


    Server speeds. You will connect to most servers, but at speeds that don't exceed 1-2 mbps. Also sometimes the servers will drop your connection. The software is ok but not very stable.


    If you need to "hide" while surfing 10 miles from the server, it's fine. But if you are traveling in far off places and really depend on a VPN, then it's a "use it if you absolutely have to".

    Updating my review after 3 months of use: Downgrading to 2 stars.

    The new version is very unstable.
    * A good connection with a server dies completely after a few minutes
    * Half the servers are "dead" to begin with
    * The program takes anywhere from 30% to 80% of CPU! (this was confirmed by their customer service also).

    I uninstalled and reinstalled 4 times in a month! Sorry, not for me.
