ExpressVPN Review

This is the review page of ExpressVPN. Here you will find an in-depth analysis of the use of the VPN service at ExpressVPN. In this review, we look in more detail at the following elements: Speed, installation, app use, the number of servers and countries, support and the various packages and payment options.

ExpressVPN speedtest

We perform speed tests with speedtest.net. In addition, we opt for the server determined by speedtest.net and a multi-connection. First we perform the test without the connection with VPN and then with a VPN connection. We perform these two tests directly one after the other *. After comparing speed with and without VPN, we then perform a test on a VPN server in America.

The speed at our test location is very high. This allows us to fully test the speed of the VPN service.

Speedtest without connection to VPNSpeedtest without connection to VPN
Speedtest connected with VPNSpeedtest connected with VPN
Speedtest connected with VPN in the USASpeedtest connected with VPN in the USA

The speeds at ExpressVPN are very high. Of course the speeds without VPN are not achieved, but the speed that is achieved is more than sufficient to be able to do everything online without bothering you with the VPN connection. With the connection to the American VPN you see that upload, in contrast to the download, does fall sharply. You won’t get any problems with this. Your American VPN is generally used for streaming, with the download speed being the biggest factor.

* Despite the fact that we perform the tests as directly as possible after each other, a speed test depends on many causes. As a result, a speed test is always indicative.

ExpressVPN Ease of installation

The ease of installation at ExpressVPN is very high. After making the payment you will immediately see the screen to download your preferred app. We opted for the Mac installation. In this screen a clear download button appears with an activation code that you have to enter later in the installation process to make your account active in the app.

We have downloaded and tested the Mac app, but ExpressVPN offers many more apps for different systems. See them all below.

ExpressVPN app easy of use

In this analysis, we thoroughly tested the Mac version of the app and found out whether it is handy and functional. The app chooses the best server for you to connect to, your so-called Smart Location (in our case Netherlands - The Hague). Of course you can also choose which server you want to connect to yourself. Switching between different servers is very fast and very intuitive.

In the app it is also possible to indicate which VPN protocol you want to use to connect to the servers. By default, these values are set to an automatic selection. The app then chooses the protocol that is most suitable for you at that time. Do you want to be in control? Then you can easily adjust that in the app.

The app also gives the possibility to do a speed test to all VPN servers that ExpressVPN offers. We have of course tested this but are not very satisfied with it. The function can be useful if you have no insight at all. We believe, however, that you often make the choice yourself to which server you can connect and the test took a very long time to complete, during the test we chose to abort the test because it took us too long.

ExpressVPN servers and countries

At ExpressVPN you can connect to approximately 3000 servers, at 160 locations in 94 countries. This gives you enough options to always be able to connect to the right server or location. The number of servers at ExpressVPN is really great and therefore scores very well.

A lot of servers to choose fromA lot of servers to choose from

ExpressVPN support

We are going to test the support of ExpressVPN by starting a live chat about a fairly simple question. We then look at how quickly customer service responds and how quickly our question is answered. In addition, we also check whether the customer service representative is friendly to us, even though we ask a fairly simple question.

After asking the question I received an answer from a person after 10 seconds. He first asked for our email address in order to be able to reach me in the event of a broken chat. After giving the email address it took 3 minutes before the question was actually answered. The answer was sufficient and accurate. When canceling the chat we asked to send us a copy of the chat to our email. I received the email with the chat history 3 hours later.

After sharing these results, we look at the support page of ExpressVPN. Is the support page intuitive? Do you find the answers to your questions quickly?

The support page of ExpressVPN is clearThe support page of ExpressVPN is clear

The support page is well-arranged and easy to reach. There is a clear search function available, which helped perfectly with our searches. Furthermore, you can quickly click through to the most frequently asked questions, live chat (24/7 support) and manuals for setting up the VPN. They have made many videos to provide simple explanations about the use of the VPN connection.

ExpressVPN packages and payment options

At ExpressVPN they have one product and that product is exactly what you are looking for, VPN. The costs at ExpressVPN are quite high, but they also provide a high-quality VPN service for that. As with many, the longer you order the service, the lower the cost per month. View the costs per period in the table below.

Package Connections Data limit Renews automatically Length Package price
VPN 5 No limit Yes 30 dagen € 11,78 Order
180 € 54,54 Order
1 jaar € 90,92 Order

You can try the services at ExpressVPN by taking out a subscription and canceling your subscription within 30 days if you don’t like it. Within these 30 days, they have a money-back-guarantee. We have tried this money-back-guarantee. We were promised the money back without asking, and yes, within 3 working days we had the money back on our account.

You can pay in 14 ways at ExpressVPN. This allows you to use almost all possible payment options at ExpressVPN. Paying with Bitcoin is also possible, this ensures that you remain even more anonymous.

Conclusion review about ExpressVPN

We are very happy with the service that ExpressVPN offers. The VPN service is fast, the app is easy to use and support helps you exactly where you need it. All these plus points come with a high price, which we at BesteVPN.nl therefore also find the only real disadvantage. After this review we definitely recommend you to try ExpressVPN!

Suziey9 gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I subscribed to Express VPN mainly because I wanted to stream US Netflix[to Australia] and have anonymity on line.Little did I know that I would be able to do this plus so much more.I am pretty clueless when it comes to computers but found it quick and simple to download, with easy instructions and tips to make the best use of the VPN.I've only had one issue at the very start [and that was my fault]where I needed to call in the support staff and I found them to be super friendly,patient and very helpful.Because I am not computer savvy,the support person had to talk me[in depth] through everything.He never once lost his cool,patience or dignity and persevered with me until the error was solved-I had mistakenly downloaded the old app ,so I downloaded the new one and was streaming US Netflix that night.Problem solved !Express VPN thus far[for me],has been well worth the cost and I highly recommend it !

Mr Ken Taylor gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I travel extensively and to areas that tend to cause to concern to some sites that I need to access. I find that Express VPN smooths out all the issues. I no longer have any problems with booking flights, banking and other purchases. I can always access content on Amazon and Netflix etc, which was problematic before. The fact that Express VPN can be used across three devices mean my mac, iPad and iPhone are all protected. I'm not sure if it's just my perception but I appear to have a reduced amount of junk mail since I installed it.

Charles Walker gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I love this service. It allows me to use the internet in total privacy. I can change my locations from USA to a variety of other countries. The customer service is great as well. Not being very tech smart they helped me with the start up. A very valuable service they provide. I am a forever customer.

Sydney gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

The best VPN I’ve used!! I used other VPNs, in the past and none of them worked as well as this one. Express VPN is the best VPN out there, and I 10/10 recommended to anyone looking for one! You won’t find one better than this! The amount of locations provided is amazing, and I can use my schools wifi to do pretty much anything now without anything blocking

David gave ExpressVPN: 1 stars

Very worrying that I have tried to sign up for more than three weeks but their system constantly says "Sorry, Service Down" every time. Tried four different browsers and three different email addresses and all are the same. Makes you wonder if the company is having some major issues and this does not inspire the slightest confidence if they cannot get something so basic as payment to keep working. Been on support chat to them about six times now but they just keep saying they cannot do anything about it. Shame, had such high hopes but now nervous of giving them my money. No idea what the service is like because I cannot get that far! EDIT: Further to the above, just read the other low star reviews on here all placed in the last few weeks. Exactly my experience of using their support chat. Canned answers by people who don't seem to have a clue. Promises of a resolution and no action whatsoever. I am going to steer well clear. Suggest others do the same until they up their game. A lucky escape for me I think?
