Editors' Review

+

TeamViewer is an excellent screen-sharing and file-transfer app that can be used to facilitate business collaborations as well as helping distraught relatives diagnose and cure computer problems. Along with being free for noncorporate use, it gives users precisely the tools they need to share screens securely, send files with a minimum of hassle, control access rights, and even flip which user has control.

The options available while you're in control work smoothly. You can maximize the pane that the other computer's screen is visible in, as well as utilize several smart options from a drop-down toolbar in the center of the window. A big X lets you close the connection, while the Actions button lets you switch whose in control, disable remote input, and reboot remotely. The View menu hides options to adjust the screen resolution, the optimization toward speed or quality, and control multiple-monitor displays.

When you log in, you're given an access code and a password. Sharing those allows your computer to be controlled by the level you set it to: remote support, presentation, file transfer, or VPN. The TeamViewer servers remember which computers you've connected to, so reconnecting to previously shared computers happens faster. TeamViewer also has a Web-based version, for remote connecting to home from public computer. Even the installation process is impressive. Users can toggle admin rights, can opt out of running at startup, and can opt into installing the TeamViewer VPN driver for more secure screensharing. Overall, TeamViewer makes screensharing and file-sharing as fluid and unobtrusive as it should be.

"Does everything I wanted it to do"

March 25, 2010  |  By soapladyltd

 |  Version: TeamViewer 5.0.7687

Pros

Fast. Easy. Free.

Cons

None so far

Summary

This bailed me out from my expectation that Window Home Server would allow me remote access to the different computers in my home. Well, ONLY if you are running Win 7 Pro or above! (small print.) So I am quite happy with this solution that is faster than Live Mesh.

"Pitiful Price! Great Program"

February 12, 2010  |  By mrarcadian

 |  Version: TeamViewer 5.0.7687

Pros

The program works great but if you use it on to many peoples computers it reports you as a commercial user.

Cons

Very HIGH pricing structure not wortth it at all. If they going to make something free they should not say its free.

Summary

Its an awesome program but its obvious they know who is using it, since it send a signal to the headquarters with all the ID numbers, so your information could be compromised. since they have your computer onfile, so be warned!

"Great for Homes with multi-computers"

February 06, 2010  |  By Enigma4566

 |  Version: TeamViewer 5.0.7687

Pros

I really like the ease of installation. The transfer of files between computers was efficient and quick. Makes sharing files between two different windows systems not an issue. Love the session password ability.

Cons

No mention that 2nd computer had to be running same program. No stand alone program icon to access when wanting to connect to 2nd computer.

Summary

I like the product for the ease of access, security and plain fun to mess with someone while they are on their computer. Love that it has a session password ability, that way can't have computer accessed from an outsider.
