"Program works, then comes the bill"

February 06, 2009  |  By OffDWall

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

The program actually works pretty good

Cons

There's nothing I hate worse than the ol' Bait & Switch. It says "free" everywhere but 10 minutes after loading this I get an email telling me I am limited to 120 minutes unless I put out a base yearly price of $79! That ain't free!

Summary

What's wrong with being honest? If you can't trust the company up front it's just not worth the hassle. You know they are going to jack you up again somewhere down the line.

"I can access my computer from anywhere"

September 07, 2009  |  By pameyer

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

Simple and fast; extremely reliable and secure. Latest free version (August 2009) is considerably improved.

Cons

Needs an I.E. ActiveX or a Firefox plugin which may be problem on some computers.

"Been using it for years, and it works GREAT!"

September 03, 2009  |  By JayScott

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

It just works the way you want, 99% of the time.
It REALLY is FREE; at least it has been for years.

Cons

Every once in a while, a PC will go offline, and it may need to be rebooted. But that has always taken care of it. Other than that, just about perfect.

Summary

I've been using it for a few years, for about 5 different PCs. (No, this is allowed, because they're not all mine; I set it up for other people. They use it, and occasionally ask me to log in and look at or fix something.)

I've had it on my personal PC for about 3 years, and never gave them my credit card number.

The only complaints I ever get are about speed, or something that they don't know how to use it, and once I show them they're happy. Of course, ANY remote access will have speed issues sometimes, so I recommend LogMeIn enthusiastically, and it's one of the VERY few pieces of software I do that with.

Oh, by the way, what do I do for a living? I write software.

"Delighted" is not too strong a word for how people react after I set it up for them. Especially if they just bought a netbook and are going to travel with it.

Why is it that the free software so often works better than the stuff you have to pay for? And is that related to why it's so hard go get people to pay me for writing software? Just asking.

"Login to my PC and Mac for free even on low bandwidth"

September 02, 2009  |  By mikeoertli

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

I can login to my PC and my Mac from anywhere even with minimal bandwidth. I have rarely had problems with the service, and I can even restart my machines remotely. I cannot believe its free and this reliable or functional. Love it!

Cons

Once in a blue moon I get a notice that ActiveX or Java isn't enabled in my browser so it's using a screen shot method of some kind, it's less functional than normal but rarely happens. (Yes these things are enabled)

"Control all the computers on your home network."

September 01, 2009  |  By CXCHRISTOF

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

Easy to set up and use. No problems.

Cons

No drag and drop. Can't hear speakers on other computers. Only works on your local network.
Pro version expensive for personal use.

Summary

Log on to your Office computer, and fix the problems on your wife's computer, while watching Tv from your den.
Files can be easily transferred via Public folders, or across network folders. Pro version allows drag n drop, but then you pay monthly (HORRORS). Pro version has

Pros

Quick to set up, easy to add multiple computers, and the free version is completely functional unless you want to do file transfers - for that you pay the upgrade cost.

Cons

None at all

Summary

Easy to use, free, and absolutely no problems.

"Great software, and Free version really is FREE"

July 15, 2009  |  By spardue99

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

Love it, lets me access my home PC while traveling with my laptop. Extremely useful. At the end of my 30-day trial of the Pro version, I chose the Free version, which lacks some of the capabilities of the Pro version but meets my needs very well.

Cons

Can't think of any cons (other than noting from the comments here that some people seem confused about how to switch from the 30-day trial of the Pro version to the Free version at end of their trial.)

Summary

I really like LogMeIn, and use it often. As for the negative comments from people who think the free version is a just marketing ploy, all I can say is I've been using the free version for over six months now, and it is indeed free. Apparently, some folks get confused at the end of their free 30-day trial of the Pro version and choose to sign up for Pro, which does have a monthly cost, instead of switching to the free version when their trial ends. (And for the record, I think the Pro version is a good deal if you want the additional features it offers.)

"Works fine...trivial to install...easy to use..."

June 29, 2009  |  By trojdor

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

Cuts through Nat/firewall/modem/routers like they weren't there. Zero config. Reasonably fast for a browser based interface. Price is right for free version.

Cons

Could be faster. Not as configurable as I'd like.

Summary

Simple software install with no change to router/nat/firewall/modem. (Make sure you setup the host machine -only- with this software.) Simple browser interface for 'guest module'. Only guest install is a browser plug-in. Just log onto the created logmein account and click on the hosted computer. I like the redirected remote printer output to local machine feature. Not so much the redirected audio. Overall a pleasant surprise.

"Great service/great price! Reliable, easy to set up."

June 20, 2009  |  By alborgg

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.784

Pros

Easy to take over a remote PC and to send files back and forth. The cost for 1 PC is 1/3 the cost of GOTOMYPC.

Cons

I wish they had a special rate plan for 3 PC's (they have one for 5 PC's).

Summary

Best remote access software out there.
