    Does anyone have any experience with either one of these vpns? I've never really heard of either of them, so it'd be nice to know a little about them. After doing a bit of reading, it seems that one thing that sets cryptostorm apart is that tokens are used for authentications and that no real info (especially if bit coin is bought from a 3rd party) is needed to buy a token. There was also some really questionable stuff about someone who may or may not be affiliated with cryptostorm still, but I won't post that here.

    Nord seems to be well respected too (see here.) Both are cheap; less that $100 for two years.

    Thoughts?

    Both NordVPN's Windows and OSX clients are IPv4 leak-free. But both totally leak IPv6. However, that's easily fixed by disabling IPv6 and blocking IPv6 with firewall.

    Both CryptoStorm's Windows and OSX clients leaked IPv4 while reconnecting after uplink interruption. And they totally leak IPv6. However, as with NordVPN, that's easily fixed by disabling IPv6 and blocking IPv6 with firewall.
