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!

Andrew Pike gave ExpressVPN: 1 stars

Used to be a great product and good customer service. However now all you ever get is updates released with glitches (last 3 on Mac) and crap customer service. They use Zendesk as customer service, always been sharks, take money and pish of customers. Find a better VPN.

JK Student gave ExpressVPN: 4 stars

I loved it but i just have one complain you should add more servers to work with Netflix for different countries. Other then that it's the best vpn ever.

Patrick Samways gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Empire Business gave ExpressVPN: 3 stars

I switched to these guys from 'Cyberghost' because they themselves had massive conflict and slowdown issues. To begin with everything was fine, the software runs smoothly and uses relatively little memory and doesn't conflict with all the software I've previously had issues with. I must admit I was very presently surprised. Tech support is fine but has a long way to go. They may be there 24 hrs a day, but for a while I didn’t have the flexibility to do what I needed to in the software because I was led to believe it wasn't possible. It doesn't matter what that was, it indeed was possible but a lot of the tech staff don't understand the software well enough to assist with all of the problems. Then there is the issue of the VPN connecting to the wrong location on reboot. You can specify to connect to the last used location, but I wouldn't trust it. Well over a third of the time it would connect to what they call "smart location" in my country. I'm sorry but to force me to connect to a location I do not want to connect to is a massive security risk for a VPN provider. My data may still be encrypted but that isn't enough these days. Given that many people want to connect to a different country for access, forcing a connection through there own country should be considered irresponsible. In the end all I wanted them to do was to acknowledge that they were fixing the issue and give me a timescale on how long it usually takes between software updates but even that was too much for them. It's intermittent, so they don't need to fix it apparently. Strangely all of the time they tell you it is not possible to speak with a manager on chat so when somebody eventually says of course it's possible, well.. now I'm left thinking they just tried to avoid the issue by transferring me to someone pretending to be a manager, maybe I was wrong though. The ‘Manager’ I spoke with did try to help but ultimately couldn’t offer anything that hadn’t been done previously. I'm sorry but just too much of a security risk. Connecting to the wrong country, not being willing to discuss it with me, just rehashing solutions that don't work, trying to avoid the whole the situation by not responding to my emails as promised. Nothing short of scandalous. App is clean and smooth, it actually looks quite good although some of the icons for example to the right of the individual location servers are so hard to see, if you wanted the flexibility of using those functions it would go over your head that they were even there. Actually very close to being a great piece of software if only they can fix the connection on reboot issue, I just get the feeling that they can’t be bothered because it was an intermittent fault. At least for now, look elsewhere. ------------------------ Thanks for the comment below, but you've already failed at fixing the issue and led me to believe that your software engineers are not actively looking for a fix. A terrible GUI in respect to the almost invisible icons and insecure, connecting to the wrong country. Maybe I'll try again in a couple of years.

I have been using VPN express over 2 yrs and recently bought a new PC and I m not a techie but after installing it in my new PC the system seems faster, anyhoo the fact that I've never had downtime or any tech issues has been a bonus and the installation instructions made for laymens nice, ohh aswell knowing that there is 24/7 support puts me at ease so yeah express VPN it's a game changer for surfing online.

J-M Legrand gave ExpressVPN: 5 stars

Great VPN don't go anywhere else Express VPN give you choices and settings could not recommend it more thank you again.

andres trefz gave ExpressVPN: 4 stars

I installed the application recently, both on my PC and on my cell phone (Android), and, really, I'm surprised by the speed of streaming that this service has. At the moment, I have not experienced any failure, but, I am sure that if it were, this would be resolved quickly and effectively by the developer of the app, thanks and good morning.-
