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 In addition, we opt for the server determined by 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.

Choose a protocol yourself or determine automaticallyChoose a protocol yourself or determine automatically

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

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 therefore also find the only real disadvantage. After this review we definitely recommend you to try ExpressVPN!

Karl gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

ExpressVPN is fantastic! I live as expat in China and without ExpressVPN life would be hard! Daily I enjoy the VPN, I enjoy youtube, google and so many other sites which China tried to break down. Fantastic. As compared to other VPN‘s EspressVPN is faster, more stable and so easy to use! And the best: ExpressVPN offers a very fast online service with very quick 24/7 response. I was overwhelmed how smooth and reliable that worked, in minutes my self-made problem was solved. I highly recommend ExpressVPN fos China- life becomes only better with ExpressVPN Karl

Alexander gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

ExpressVPN has a special place in my heart. Never failing me in any way, never in my time of using ExpressVPN has there been a problem, never lost connection and the speeds are great, using other vpn's as well and I always come back to ExpressVPN. Great connection speeds, both in-country and from areas like USA. Their DNS, oh boy. Using their Mediastreamer and DNS's codes have been a dream of mine, granting me access to streaming services like American Netflix or me being able to livestream Doctor Who through BBC. As I said, ExpressVPN has never failed me and from my personal experience, it never will. It gives me freedom without the hassle. Thanks, ExpressVPN!

Simon gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Apart from the express vnp that I am using now in China, I have recently also purchased Nordvpn too for a back up plan but realised Expressvpn is good enough. China recently has been actively blocking vpns and I tried using nordvpn to google but many times got blocked but not Expressvpn. I strongly recommend Express!This is my take away. Have a good one. Simon

Bassel Agroam gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I’ve been living in China for the last 3 months and I can honestly say without ExpresssVPN, not sure what I would’ve done to stay in contact with friends and family. Most things are blocked here and ExpressVPN does a fantastic job at unblocking and keeping you connected to the rest of the world. YouTube, Netflix, Facebook, Instagram, etc all work perfectly and speeds are great. It’s such a quick and easy set up process and with one click of a button you’re online! I’ve recommended ExpressVPN to all my friends even if they aren’t in China as I can see unlimited uses for a VPN in any country.

Max Wallace (方欽茂) gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Fast, Stable and lots of servers around the world. Absolutely love it so far!

Bree L gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I would definitely recommend Express VPN because they are the best VPN service out there. The few times I've had to use their customer service, they've been amazing and have helped fix the problem as soon as possible. They're trustworthy, reliable and I will continue to use them as long as they're available!

Rob B. gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I am inside of China Mainland and have for over a ten years been using VPN's. Very few VPN's and I mean very few functions here with reliability except for one, ExpressVPN. I am always trying a new VPN for backups for it is essential to my business security, however, have not fund a reliable backup. ExpressVPN is my primary and my backup VPN. ExpressVPN, they are without a doubt reliable, consistent and stand ready to help at any time.

I use it every day! It's speed is so fast!!!

Andrew Tsenilov gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

When I first came to China 3 years ago I was struggling with internet connection for about 6 months. I had no friends here at that time and didn't know that almost all the websites I need were blocked in China. I tried tons of different VPN's, but not a single one was giving me stable connection that I needed as a content creator on YouTube and other platforms. During my trip to Hong Kong, where internet is not blocked, I was able to purchase my first ExpressVPN 1 year subscription and oh, man it made a difference! It's not only that I was able to access all the websites, but that the download and upload speed was always significantly faster after connecting to ExpressVPN server. Now after about 2 years of using it I just don't see myself using anything else. China was cracking down on VPN's, but ExpressVPN is still there, going strong and I hope this is going to last, because I really need it for work. So, if you are wondering if it's worth getting a subscription - it most certainly is. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.
