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.

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.

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!

Farid Alkorashy gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I tried many VPN apps specially with my business (I’m an IT professional) and gaming, and I can tell with confidence that ExpressVPN has the best efficiency. I also used the service it provides to open my account in different devices of my friends to try it out and they all liked it. If you are looking for the best, stable and easy to use VPN app, then I recommend you to try ExpressVPN. Trust me ExpressVPN won’t let you down.

Lait Jagami gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Express VPN is the best vpn among others, also compatible with Linux. It grants access to the pages that cannot be opened from different states with much accuracy. The vpn connection does not affect the quality and speed of internet browsing. The price flatly justifies the service provided, the support team is very helpful and quick in responding.

Best vpn. Fast and reliable

Gustavo Fabbroni gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I've been using ExpressVPN for quite some time now, basically for streaming music and video otherwise inaccessible from my location. The service has been flawless and I highly recommend it.

IanF gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

After a apprehensive start I am in my 2nd year with ExpressVPN and I intend to continue using them. Setup was easy; finding the appropriate locations easy, connection and using the sites I needed is seamless. A couple of times the connection has dropped but by leaving the site I was linked to, disconnecting and reconnecting to the same location, everything worked fine again Nothing is perfect, but ExpressVPN is definitely doing an excellent job

David gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Overall an excellent VPN. Definitely pricier than the competition but I believe you get value for money. It ultimately depends on your needs, a cheaper VPN like ProtonVPN will not be as fast, so Netflix or gaming may lag but will be as secure, if not more so in certain circumstances. I do believe what you get for the added cost, is very fast speeds, plus excellent customer support. Live chat available 24/7. Also very good uptime, and a one of the easiest to use app interfaces I’ve come across. I’ll be honest, in terms of comparisons, I’ve only used PureVPN and NordVPN maybe once each. PureVPN definitely wasn’t as fast, for me, at least. Nord is good but Express VPN is easier to use and has a simpler interface. Express VPN you press a three dot button to select what country you want, then click the big power button. It learns your regular top three locations and you quickly end up just clicking the power button to connect. Single click. If you choose smart location, it connects you to the nearest server, which maintains you’re internet speed very well. I believe ExpressVPN is the fastest and best for streaming video or gaming. NordVPN is a bit trickier to connect, it has a map style interface from memory. I don’t remember PureVPN. Pure responded to email support well but Express has 24/7 live chat and they’re very accommodating. My only criticism is that once, ages ago, Express accidentally added two subscriptions to my account, also credit card info shows up, albeit partially censored. Somebody else Must have bought subscriptions via credit card and it got added to my account. Support fixed it right away but since then, I’ve been reluctant to pay via Credit Card. Maybe use PayPal or some other method that obscures your payment details.

Sherveen gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Apart from the world class security offered by ExpresssVPN, I have used it mostly for entertainingment purposes. I have been traveling all over, mostly in Europe and Asia. I for one cannot handle life with my sports. Through ExpressVPN I was able to watch all my games on ESPN or any American channel I had subscription to no matter where I was. The best part, the speed of the stream was never compromised and I was never left without a connection as long as I had internet. I have recommended ExpressVPN to countless friends and family and will continue to do so. Thanks

Kavar Middleton gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Very fast, secure and reliable VPN. It was the first time i've ever tried a VPN service and i have no complaints. I like being able to utilize this across all of my devices, even my router. They have an app for almost every platform, simple interface and easy to use. Also a plus that you can switch between so many servers. Would definetly recommend for the price and service.
