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.

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!

Dave gave ExpressVPN: 1 stars

Having been in IT since 1980, taught, written and project management for a wide range of software, OS, netoworks and HW - I feel I can give a fair assessment with the background and knowledge to do so. I also truly feel the many glowing and over the top positive comments by so called customers are fake as they hold no true resemblance to my experience of using Express VPN. To many issues to list here but primarily even though installing to my PC it caused major problems to my WIFI/Router and printer, dropped to half the speed, streaming movies especially Youtube that I had no problems before often cut out with a network error, found often after switching to a different VPN and returning to my usual London Docklands one, I found for some web sites appeared in different languages to English even though resetting the language option in Google. Support was terrible, even though making allowances for the Corona-virus and having taught online internet support staff I can pretty much redognize the product knowledge and teckie level of those I chatted to. I found zero ability to answer direct questions or even refer to them and even when asking them to send me the wenpage I had come across that gave instructions for Printer connections they ignored and I had to trace my self and sort it out my self. Unfortunately being in the industry I know far greater amounts of money is spent on the 'spin' ie writing fake Trustpilot evaluations and paying web sites to give a positive report than on the training, payment of decent salaries to support staff. I certainly won't use Express VPN after what I read about them and my dreadful experience of using them and I suggest you don't either.

"Here in your mind you have complete privacy. Here there's no difference between what is and what could be.” Chuck Palahniuk, Asfixia Express VPN allows me to feel a sense of privacy while utilizing the internet. It gives me the freedom to enter any website without any hesitation and transfer online payments without fear. Express VPN does not interfere with the speed of my internet in fact, I feel like it even makes it faster. I use Express VPN all the time, it helps me upload documents and use websites and apps and many other countless advantages that help my day to day life. Without it my work will be completely interrupted. It is like I am the inside of the orange and it is the peal, without it I will rotten and dry! Thank you for this creation!

Ade Sofola gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Been using Express VPN for a year now across all my devices - absolutely no complaints from me. From helping us use services when we are on holiday to giving us security when we are online- it is great. Totally worth the price!

Edward Calaycay gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I love Express VPN since its easy to use, user friendly and there are lots of VPN locations around the world. My subscription here gives me a peace of mind in terms of Internet security since it has a military grade security and I also able to watch different tv shows and movies in the other countries block by geo restrictions of different countries around the world and even its a VPN it didn't slow my internet speed. Thanks Express VPN! More power to come and God bless!

Sherwin S. gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

I am entering the 2nd year subscription of expressvpn. It shows that I am very satisfied with it. I use it in my laptop and mobile phones. I feel very secured when using it. I like the feature that it blocks the connection when it is disconnected from internet. But I could not use the Netflix for US content in my Android TV Box even thought I installed it in there also. I don't know what the problem is even it is clearly indicating that it is connected in a US server. Also I like the feature that it opens when windows starts up. It is good for other users who are not familiar of its usage to just click connect it they see it is not connected for cases I am not at home.

Linus gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Easy to setup for mobile and pc! Very low price for what you get. It's super fast and my internet speed isnt affected at all while using ExpressVPN. Only had one issue but it was on my side and ExpressVPN helped me out fast and we could solve my issue. Strongly recommend this VPN!
