    "Every free IP address they have is on a spam block list"

    July 21, 2014   |   By JudasIAD

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.13.16

    Pros

    Did hide my IP and my surfing speed was pretty fast.

    Cons

    I was trying to register at a forum but could not because every single Cyberghost IP address I attempted to use was on a block list for spam.

    Summary

    It works well if you just want to surf fast and anonymously, but if you're trying to register for a forum or any website that subscribes to spam block lists, you won't be able to as all their free IPs are on a spam block list. And YES, I checked every single free one in every country they had listed.

    Too bad.

    "Best one for the price !"

    June 06, 2014   |   By pmshah

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.13.16

    Pros

    Everything that a VPN should be. In fact even my ISPs speed restrictions got bypassed as related to the traffic. Could visit every site blocked by the Indian government due to US pressure and/or local political clout were accessible to me. Extremely satisfied with the service.

    Cons

    Not really any. Recently they have stopped supporting torrent protocol. For me it is not a con.

    Summary

    For the price they are charging for 5 devices and 2 years, it is the best deal one can get.

    June 06, 2014   |   By swanjame

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.13.16

    Pros

    Very solid, stable connection. Lots of options on how to connect. Does not seem to degrade internet speed. Excellent support.

    Cons

    None. None.

    Summary

    Cyberghost seems to be working well lately.

    "Very fast, very easy, very nice"

    June 04, 2014   |   By MaryAndPaul98

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.13.16

    Pros

    - Very easy to use, just 1 click
    - Possibility to choose from more than 20 countries
    - Possibility to manually choose an IP adress
    - Internet Kill Switch
    - DNS Leak Protection (the first one which works)
    - IP Leak Protection (it will kill existing connections or prevents them from leaking)
    - ULTRA FAST servers, never used such a fast VPN service

    Cons

    The free service is limited in the amount of available servers.

    Summary

    The installation of CyberGhost was very easy and the user interface welcomed with with a nice looking world map, showing my current real location. At the beginning, I let CyberGhost select a server automatically for me, which selected a server in my country. The connection process was very fast and I could not feel any speed difference compared to my regular connection.
    The additional protection features are awesome, like hiding your browser fingerprint, blocking tracking websites.

    I'm also using the Android client, which pretty much works the same.

    "Horrible customer service"

    January 20, 2014   |   By Cobraohm

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.9.8

    Pros

    worked for a day

    Cons

    Stopped working, horrible customer service.

    Summary

    I paid for the Premium version and it worked for 1 day and then stopped. Seems to be a fad if you read the reviews. I guess they trick you and get you to pay and then shut off the service. While it was relatively cheap, it is useless. I emailed them to try to fix the problem and after my third email the blocked me from emailing them.. I was in shock. I was super polite and cordial and they just blocked me instead of trying to figure out the solution with me. I had told them in the original message my info and sent them my log and for the next 2 emails they just said "make sure you have the latest update" and "turn off your firewall" I had told them my version and mentioned I turned off my firewall in the first email... horrible customer service.

    "Free is never really free"

    December 07, 2013   |   By mcclenaghan1

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.9.8

    Pros

    Wokrs for short time.

    Cons

    Stops working after a few days.

    Summary

    So-called free version isn't free for long. Works a few days, then disconnects itself with a message that you've been on for 3 hours so it's disconnecting. Then it stops working altogether, with message to "purchase upgrade". Doesn't do any good to uninstall and re-install because the re-installation won't work either.

    "suspicious activity when I installed it"

    November 04, 2013   |   By sjp88

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.9.8

    Pros

    great for hiding your anonymitity

    Cons

    suspiciuous activity on my laptop a couple of weeks after i installed it down to this program.

    Summary

    I installed it and a couple of weeks later I tried to buy something from ebay and the site came up with an expired cerificate. I looked at the url and it was trying to redirect me to a spoofed ebay site. I wouldnt trust a vpn client now, you don't know where your information is going. Even with the program turned off it was still redirecting me. I un-installed the program and the problem disappeared. Dont pass your info through this program. Although it's on cnet its not safe.

    "Works Great but!"

    October 30, 2013   |   By almostfriday

    Version: CyberGhost VPN 5.0.9.8

    Pros

    The free version works as advertised. BUT!

    Cons

    It also added. White Smoke, Software Version Updater, Level Quality Watcher, Tube Dimmer, PC fix Speed, Browser Safe Guard, and the worst yet was Scorpian Saver. I deleted all the programs. However Scorpian Saver keeps reinstalling on it's own every few days.

    Summary

    I delete everything including CyberGhost VPN
