I just use the Norton one, included in my Norton360 subcscription, good speeds and for the one or two torrents i download its perfect.
It uses the Wireguard protocol.

Mine internet speed sucks lol, well Adguard VPN with Protocol own. and Adguard DNS (not Default).
I think almost same speed as 30 without VPN and 27-28 with VPN
You can try check settings on the Protocol and DNS

My ISP contract is 200 down and 30 up. Tests are with my wife's laptop (ground floor with only one thick concrete wall from router). At first floor (my desktop) I loose around 15% internet speed because the WIFI signal has to go through an additional (thick isolated double) concrete floor and two thin 10 cm aerated concrete walls. This is quite common in Dutch building using thick "system/prefab" concrete elements for supporting walls and floor/ceiling and thin aerated blocks for separation/inner walls. Also quite common in Holland is that any WIFI device picks up over 20 interfering WIFI networks (17 million people living on an area what is about 2/3 the surface of West Virginia or Tasmania).

Upper left = ISP, left below = NextDNS + BulletVPN(ams), upper right = Next+Bullet (fra), lower right - Next + Bullet (par)

@Lad With a Dad as Digmor Crusher said, more and more websites are detecting VPNs, so it's not a Nord issue. If you have a paid version, stick with it, I use Nord as well as F-Secure Total's onboard VPN. Both work nicely, Nord does have some nice features, though.
Quick question. I've seen people recommend f-secure a lot in regard to antivirus and then some more with the onboard VPN, but why are the reviews so bad elsewhere? I looked at their website on trustpilot which was previously claimed and after pretty much nothing but negative reviews they unclaimed their profile rather than address the negativity. I'm not hating, I'm just curious as to why it's highly recommended on the forum but has negativity outside of it.

I have no idea, but we're speaking from our experience here on the forum. If you're concerned, there are other options like Avast, ESET, Norton, Kaspersky, and one or two others I'm missing, that get good reviews here. Use what you feel you'll have greater peace with, do some more research here as well as online.

As far as Nord, if you have a paid subscription, even though they are going the way of heavy advertising and extra features (maybe getting into the realm of "bloatware") keep using it until you renew or want to try something else. it still has excellent speeds, RAM servers, and a good no-log privacy policy as far as I know.

edit: and maybe it has to do with that we may be a little more alert and aware about what we're doing online, downloads, etc than other "casual" users?
