    "Very nice product, but read on...."

    March 1, 2016  |   By Assin Ontivi

    Version: TeamViewer 11.0.55321

    Pros

    Compact, installs quickly, seems quite secure. Easy to use, file transfer and other features very nice.

    Cons

    Pricing is astronomical!!!! Their plan is to pay just once, and its good forever, but how long is forever? You could pay them and they go out of business in a month or two, and what's your recourse?

    Summary

    Sorry to say, I would not pay into this "scheme". The free product is good for occasional installs of competing product, and you can leave it on there if you don't want to "play fair" in TeamViewer's language. I would favor a MUCH less expensive subscription plan over their very pricey plan ($ 3,500 for 3 concurrent users. wow!).

    "Free version is outstanding Pay version not so much"

    January 19, 2016  |   By Ottoyummi

    Version: TeamViewer 11.0.53254

    Pros

    Free version works great, fast, great file transfer, built in chat, talk and video.

    Cons

    You cannot log into a pay version and free version on the same computer.
    Pay version is restricted compared to free version: limits concurrent device connections, limits concurrent accounts connections, cellphone app does not work with pay version, regardless of when you purchase the next version is full price.
    Customer service is slow to respond and uncaring.

    Summary

    I love TeamViewer and used it for years to manage my own computers and my families as the families "free help desk". So naturally when the need arose at work I pushed for purchase of TeamViewer corporate. The cost was about $3k for 3 seats. What I didn't realize was the pay version is more restricted than the free version. I have two separate accounts, the one that has my grandma's laptop and the one that has the $10k servers for work. Because I use the same computer for both accounts I get those annoying "Commercial Use Suspected" warnings and eventually it goes into Restricted mode where I can only connect for a few minutes EVEN with the account I paid nearly $3k. TeamViewer support told me I should use two computers and that my use case is too unique to provide a solution. Overall they have been unsympathetic to my problem and slow to provide any kind of solution.

    "Don't listen to these other people! Teamviewer is great"

    January 12, 2016  |   By BoyWonder68

    Version: TeamViewer 11.0.53254

    Pros

    Ease of use
    Speed (very quick response)
    Security (point-to-point)
    File transfers

    Cons

    The only issue that I have is that Teamviewer requires that both sending and receiving computers have the same version (definitely NOT a deal breaker). However, in the latest version it tells you if the versions are different and gives you the option to update the remote client.

    Summary

    In short, if you can't get it to work right or have connection issues, perhaps YOU did something wrong. Many companies block connections from out of country IP addresses. If you got a license error on the free version are you sure you installed it right. It's atrocious that people tend to blame the product when most of the time it's because they don't know what they are doing.

    "Wish I never used it-total waste of time"

    January 6, 2016  |   By nuhair2003

    Version: TeamViewer 11.0.53254

    Pros

    All the pros is overshadowed by a major flaw

    Cons

    You can't use it when you need it. I set this so that I can remote into my office computer from overseas. It worked fine when I tested it from the same country but when I tried using it overseas it keeps coming up with errors and then apparently my "license" has expired--I was under the impression that I was using this as a free program if there was redtape involved I would have never bothered. What a total waste of my time. I wish it was never recommended to me and if anyone is thinking of using it the same way I am then don't!

    Summary

    I wish it was never recommended to me and if anyone is thinking of using it the same way I am then don't!

    "CONTAINS SPYWARE do not download"

    July 14, 2015  |   By invisiview

    Version: TeamViewer 10.0.43879

    Pros

    Works well if you do not care about your privacy.

    Cons

    Software monitors your use and reports to their server to try detect commercial use. Reports false positives.

    Summary

    I have no need for functionality on my computer that compromises my privacy.

    "Easy to use, easy to install, and free!"

    February 27, 2015  |   By ememkai

    Version: TeamViewer 10.0.39052

    Pros

    Beats other methods of remote access (e.g. Pogo Plug)
    Has worked for me without problems every time
    No advertising, no nag screens
    Free!

    Cons

    Instructions could be a bit more explicit; however, they have improved a bit in the later versions.

    Summary

    TeamViewer has replaced my Pogo Plug and Seagate NAS -- none of which really worked -- for remote access. Any files that I need, I simply use TeamViewer to copy to my Dropbox and voilĂ ! it's available at the remote location.

    "Will not organize files by "date modified.""

    January 22, 2015  |   By donholive

    Version: TeamViewer 10.0.36897

    Pros

    Worked smoothly through v. 9.0

    Cons

    Ver. 10 is absolutely unusable for those of us who use it primarily for file transfers.

    Summary

    Did the editors of the new program not check out this feature?

    "Cuts me off while helping my mom with her computer"

    January 18, 2015  |   By egmtbski

    Version: TeamViewer 10.0.36897

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Cons

    Cuts me off in the middle of helping my elderly mother with her computer

    Summary

    Many times over the past 2 years it cuts me off while I'm in the middle of helping my elderly mother with her computer issues. I leave her in a worse state than when she called me as I'm in the middle of trying things to get her mail working or access to the internet, etc.
    I cannot imagine that anything I'm doing qualifies as "commercial" use. Just trying to help an elderly person with her computer.
