Editors' Review

The name might be LogMeIn, but the motto should be SignMeUp.

The fact that it's free to use for multiple remote PCs, with reasonable monthly plans if you need more--five computers for $20 per month or $200 per year--makes this remote-access program instantly appealing. The program differs from its competitors in that the application runs in your Web browser. If you're running Firefox, it asks to install a plug-in and then opens an emulator of the remote PC in a new window. If you have a lot of tabs open, LogMeIn will slow down your browsing and possibly your CPUs clock speed a bit.

The control window gives you some standard options such as Ctrl-Alt-Del (which kills the connection) and changing the view settings, as well as tabbed access to adjust the connection setting. The 256-bit SSL encryption and dual passwords--one for the program and one for the remote PC's log-in--are welcome protections.

You must upgrade to take advantage of the file transfer and synchronization abilities, but creative users should be able to find ways around that restriction for small files. Still, for the functionality and the price, LogMeIn is an excellent program.

"Used to be good"

May 21, 2012  |  By robertg222

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.2138

Pros

Easy to configure. Gets around firewall issues

Cons

Does not work well when remote machine is running Windows 7

Summary

I have been using LMI for a years. It was great. Then they changed something. Now a remote sesion to a Windows 7 machine can take 30 seconds for a screen redraw. Totally useless. The LMI techs just give the usual BS answers.

"Not available for All OS listed"

May 05, 2012  |  By ninja660

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.2138

Pros

Nice features.

Cons

Does not work with anything older than Windows 2000. So, don't know why they list that NT/98/Me are listed as supported options. This is per the documentation on the LogMeIn website.

Summary

Ok, but if you want a solution VNC is still a viable option and it's free.
