ExpressVPN Windows VPN Client Review

We often take for granted the client features and ease of use that leading VPN services like ExpressVPN provide their customers.  Yet those who are shopping for VPN access or considering it for the first time would probably like to see just how easy  it is to get up and running.  So we’re going to start a series of blog posts to outline the ease of using ExpressVPN.  Beginning with their Windows client.  With Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android client reviews coming in the near future.  Sign up for the ExpressVPN $0.99 special and test out the client for yourself.

Let’s jump right into the ExpressVPN Windows client review.  After signing up for service you’ll receive an email with a link to the client download along with your activation code.  We downloaded ExpressVPN client v3.091 in just a few seconds.  The installation checked our version of .NET framework along with the OpenVPN essentials.  The client installation will update your machine with all the necessary software.

After you install and activate the ExpressVPN Windows client you can jump right in by double clicking the ExpressVPN icon on your desktop.  You’ll then be presented with a screen like the one shown below.

From here your choices are simple.  Clicking on the Options button will allow you to switch between UDP and TCP.  If you’re not sure what that means just leave the default.  Now you can simply choose which VPN server to use and click the corresponding Connect button.  The client will show the connection progress.

We connected to several VPN servers to test the client.  Each only took a few seconds to establish the connection.  At which time you’ll see a screen like this one along with an option to disconnect.  Remember that with ExpressVPN service you’re welcome to switch between VPN servers at anytime.

That’s all there is to installing the ExpressVPN Windows client and connecting to any of their 35+ servers across 21 countries.  You can read our ExpressVPN review for a full list of countries.  Along with the Windows client, ExpressVPN supports Mac and Linux.  As well as iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), Android and Nokia Series 60 devices.  They include setup instructions for other protocols including SSTP, PPTP and L2TP where applicable.  Once again we invite you to sign up for the ExpressVPN $0.99 special and test out the client for yourself.
