    Does anyone here have any experience with this one?
    Good or bad?

    Doing a search on the forum doesn't turn up much.

    Test driving the trial.

    The reviews are consistently good for ExpressVPN, plus it has a good deal right now. *puppy*

    express is good for torrenting on non-us servers if you're stateside. also it's good for bypassing the great fw of china when you're there. wouldn't recommend it to privacy enthusiasts.

    I'm pretty sure that those ratings are based on bidding for top placement.

    I've researched the issue, and it seems all too common. Basically, you can't trust reviews.

    FWIW I'm happy with ExpressVPN.
    Good speed with plenty of servers. App work well on IOS and on my Android TV box. I can access both US Netflix and BBC iPlayer.

    I've settled on IVPN with Express VPN as a back up.

    Just recently switched from Hide.me which stopped connecting for me here in Dubai to ExpressVPN. Super fast speeds and very reliable connection on both my laptop and Android phone.

    ExpressVPN doesn't work in Dubai. UDP is shaped 15 seconds after the connection has been established, resulting in dropped packets. TCP is shaped as well, very inconsistent. This is with DU ISP. Their iPhone app also doesn't work on Etisalat mobile network.

    Are you using OpenVPN UDP connection on your home Etisalat?

    I just subscribed to Exp Vpn but it blocks my internet. Cannot browse for the life of me. Talked to a couple of their reps but they seem to be clueless. Pretty sure is a DNS issue but their reps are trying to tell me it's my anti virus program and to uninstall it to see that fixes the problem. I've disabled it but still no go I've subscribed to two other VPNs with no issues browsing. I have a Win 7 pc. If anyone has any ideas it'd be greatly appreciated. Thx

    I'm just wondering if re-booting your router might help.?

    I remember having a similar problem with a vpn a while ago; when I uninstalled it because it was buggy, I couldn't, then, connect to the Internet. Let us know the outcome.

    How I fixed it was to go to the win 7 network sharing center, then change adapter settings. Disable the network that expVPN is connected to. Once you on the Internet re-able it. Was good to go. Good luck.

    man, you're replying to your own post. o_O

    edit: now then, your o.p. was starting with "had the same issue".
