Editors' Review

+

TeamViewer is a free tool that makes it incredibly easy to set and use a VPN connection; a Virtual Private Network that lets you take complete control of another PC from your own computer, whether they're separated by a soda can or a continent (and as long as both machines are running TeamViewer). It enables two-way connections in which users can flip control back and forth. TeamViewer also lets you hold virtual meetings with multiple participants (again, they all must have TeamViewer installed). With a name like TeamViewer, you'd expect it to be an enterprise-ready tool, and you'd be right: TeamViewer's robust simplicity is what happens when multiple users of vastly different skills need to use software. After a while, the bugs get squashed pretty firmly. But TeamViewer is free to non-commercial users. That means you can use it to access your work and home PCs remotely, of course. But you can also install it on your mom's PC (for example) and provide tech support from home.

We installed and opened TeamViewer on two Windows 7 PCs; one a 64-bit desktop, the other a 32-bit netbook. TeamViewer provides a user name and password for each machine. You simply need to enter each machine's numbers in the other to create a connection. The host PC's screen displays the remote PC's desktop in a window, and the host machine's mouse and keyboard control the remote PC's counterparts. We could open folders, files, and programs; run processes; and change settings: anything we could do with the remote machine's own controls, we could do from our main PC's controls, too, with TeamViewer. We tried the Meeting tool, too, but since we had TeamViewer installed on just two PCs, our pool of invitees was a bit small. TeamViewer offers some useful options; for instance, you can limit it to file transfers if you don't need total control.

TeamViewer is simply the easiest tool of its type we've used, and a far cry from the VPN apps of not so long ago. And it can cut down on the phone tag when friends and family need tech support!

"took my $2500 then forced me to pay more to use"

Pros

none! don't ever buy this scam ware

this company have a very questionably business practice. Be very cautious when giving them your credit card number. I think its funny how they always try and drowned out bad reviews with a flood of good one that they sit there and post for themselves to wash out the bad ones...

Summary

"satisfies my needs as a non-commercial user w/ 5-6 pcs"

March 18, 2012  |  By sirinakdeniz

 |  Version: TeamViewer 7.0.12799

Pros

I'm so satisfied with this product that I've never had the need to try and compare any other similar product. although it should be noted that it surpasses windows's remote control tool so much that it's beyond comparison.

Cons

if the computers have been on for longer than 1-2 days or if it has been hibernated and turned on again, then teamviewer seems to have difficulty in connecting or being connected to. the user interface does not give any clue why, but stopping and starting the service or a reboot of the computer makes it work like it should again.

"Fantastically simple to use..."

March 14, 2012  |  By thecraigjonesshow

 |  Version: TeamViewer 7.0.12799

Pros

One can use the programs on one machine that might be a 32 bit machine from your other 64 bit machine. I didn't have to scrap the 32 bit programs I already previously purchased. That savings goes a long way in my book. Plus, it is very user-friendly.

Cons

Remembering which computer you are currently working on is sometimes a little confusing.

"Dont buy this software"

March 08, 2012  |  By XzylaCorp

 |  Version: TeamViewer 7.0.12799

Pros

none they wanted me to pay 800 after i all ready bought it. :(

Cons

Dont buy this software they will charge you and then not allow you to user tour software unless u pay them more money. I paid for version 6 and they auto pushed TV7 to my computers through updates,, then told me i had to pay another $800 to use the software. I told them i didn't want V7 i just want to use V6 the one i paid for and they refused. Dont buy this software they will block your computers and extort more money from you.
