Anyone using Strong VPN can give some feedback? Is it reliable for watching US Netflix and other channels?

I read that using dedicated IP from a VPN provider will not get blocked by services like Netflix because only 1 person using. Can anyone confirm if that is true?

The latest opera browser has a built in free VPN. Any users on it, feedbacks?

quite limited on the countries selection, network speed does decrease some how, have yet tried on other web as I have not much time to test it fully.

maybe u can download and go to those website that required vpn to test it. as I only test it like Google and Facebook and those local web I go only.

They had or maybe still have a very good promo, so I signed up for trial account. What a mistake. I thought they have learned something through all this years. Their Mac app was unstable. Speeds were horrible. Netflix showed proxy error (but it was supposed to be working).

Astrill for me

Hard to beat I agree. There are two issues with them:

1. Pricing. I was told by one of their developers months ago that they are considering including home plan in standard pricing. Didn't happen. When you add up StealthVPN (for faster speeds via Astrill applet vs OpenVPN) + home plan, it gets expensive. I prefer to keep now 2-3 VPNs for US Netflix instead of one. To be honest I am waiting for Black Friday sale, hoping they will offer a nice deal for 2 years.

2. Some of their IPs are so popular already, they should consider changing them. Example: being connected to NL server, Google is showing me chinese ads everywhere I am. The obvious reason for this is because Astrill was preferred solution in China, so Google also know who are the majority of users coming from Astrill's IPs and therefore show targeted chinese ads. Beside, their IPs have been blacklisted on so many websites already and the Google captcha is annoying too.

Astrill is still good for Bukit Timah.

The firewall based internet kill switch is 100% secure. You will be teleported immediately from Bukit Timah the moment Astrill got disconnected.

All solid points, thanks for sharing!

Astrill for me, I find getting complacent, so thinking whether to switch out :D

Thanks!

The savings can be quite substantial, forgot how much I saved when I signed up the 2-year plan.

I'm not sure about Cyber Monday but I usually wait for their Black Friday.

Used to until they blocked all VPNs but there are still VPNs that can access US Netflix... it's a cat & mouse game now, what works today may not work tomorrow. That's why I terminated my Netflix few months ago.
