Great VPN, easy to use and low maintenance.

Pros

Privacy is a commodity these days, and VPNs help with that. Lots of servers to choose from. Great uptime. No/minimal loss of download speed.

Cons

Some servers will block web services, which can be frustrating, but you can fix it by switching servers.

Pros

Overall, very good. It is very easy to use and server is fast enough most of the time. Highly recommended instead of others.

Cons

One of the main reasons of getting VPN is to access Netflix in USA and it keeps getting error message.

Pros

- Once you switch on the browser plugin, you can forget about it and all your traffic can get tunnelled
- Decent speeds
- Easy to get started with tunnelling browser traffic

Cons

- With Linux you can configure OpenVPN to use NordVPN servers, but it would be nice to have a dedicated app
- Slow, jaggy experience on Firefox plugin
- Usability could be improved, for example not forgetting the username in the browser plugin so soon

It is so easy to use. Mostly just a click of a button for easy connecting. Theres also an option to connect to a specific server. It shows the server load. It works with netflix.

I don't have many cons, I guess more of suggestions. Maybe making an option to auto-switch if a server has a high load?

My data and web sessions are kept anonymous.

Pros

I chose NordVPN because of all the great reviews I saw online, and after months of using it; I actually agree with all the 5-star reviews. The app has a gorgeous design; both in Windows and Android, the choice of servers is expansive and their pricing is competitive. As someone who doesn't enjoy being tracked by all these online services, this software is a godsend.

Cons

The app on my android device has on occasion caused very high battery drains leading me to charge it more times than usual.

We're able to keep our identity safe online and protect us from infection when using public WIFI Networks when travelling.

Pros

Nord is overall very good and easy to use. Find it easy to connect without too much in the way of having to adjust settings. Something other VPN's require to their detriment.

Cons

Support is available but there's a few times they don't understand the issue at all or simply give wrong solutions. Also, the software allows you to connect to countries, with regions or cities not indicated. There's a document detailing the regions but it's not intuitive if you need a specific region.

Cheap and secure VPN

Pros

Cheapest VPN on the market, if you go for 3-year plan. Another thing is that it provides one of the highest level of security for users - no longs and registered in Panama.

Cons

Not too fast, but I don't have comparison to other VPN services, so this may not be really an issue. It's normal, that your Internet will be slower when you use VPN.

It allows privacy in age when more and more ISPs and agencies snoop into your traffic and generate fines etc.

Pros

It allows manual selection of VPN servers by country. You can chose if you are in restricted country, do you need P2P, Privacy, etc. Good thing is that you can also select which programs to terminate if VPN connection drops (hint: torrents for example).

Cons

If you want to auto-start VPN there could be more options on which server to chose. Now you can choose country or type of servers, but need to select specific server, you can't say to chose fastest P2P server in UK for example.

Pros

Everything. Fast, easy to use, many access points, secure and very affordable. It offers everything I need and is super easy to use.

Servers are very limited as they are available in few countries across the world. The speed of data transfer is causing issue sometimes.

Safe and secure browsing without anyone snooping on you or what you look at. You can be rest assured your credit card details are safe as well as any other sensitive data you may transmit during you session.

Pros

This is one of the few VPN services that offer log-less service, meaning all of the browser data gets deleted daily. It has multiple servers in numerous counties and you'll be sure there will be close by to you with a fairly fast speed.
For the more advanced users, its has settings to play around with as well as several VPN connection modes, such as onion over VPN, double VPN and more.

Cons

Sometimes the speed is lacking, however this is dependent on what connection mode you have chosen and where the server is located.

I like privacy when I surf the net. I hate being plagued by ads and this software gives me just that.

Pros

NordVPN is easy to install and use. Just a few clicks and you're up and running. Gone are the days of difficult and lengthy setups. This product is fully automated (yet flexible), making it one of the easiest I have used.

Cons

I have to configure my router because when I use NordVPN, everything else goes offline. As this is not addressed in the setup, you need to do some research to figure out how to do this.
