    I have a subscription with NordVPN and I'm happy about it. There are not many parameters to configure. In short, it is simple and effective.

    I occasionally travel, and when I do a lot of my services act up if I'm not at 'home base'

    So I invested in a VPN, I tried one earlier but it was kinda sketchy. Payment was kind of weird and support was non-existent. So I looked into Nord VPN.

    I like it, I run Windows 7 on some machines and there's an issue with drivers. Took an hour or so to update everything to what I needed, but kudos to the Nord VPN team. They helped me every step.

    I'm waiting for my other services period to run out then I'll switch over to NordVPN.

    I use NordVPN too. No complaints so far. My subscription runs out soon though and was thinking about trying Trust Zone.

    Bought the 2 year deal couple months ago, which is a shame because they had that 72% promo active then & few days later started a 3 year promo at 77% discount, about $100. I've been Expressvpn user mostly before & their sub runs down this December. Main reason for switch is cost, Expressvpn is best among the lot but somewhat pricey for me. Did some research & chose to invest in Nord finally. Its very good & a big plus is their support, both live chat & ticket based. I have windscribe free additionally & they take days to answer. The vpns who keep year based subs will always be effective & better service provider than those selling long term subscription at heavy discount. Not disappointed yet with Nordvpn & quite impressed with some features Nord offer. They brought in-browser extensions now which is a hit with me!

    Two other vpns I also shortlisted were Vyprvpn & Liquidvpn. The latter is a gaming vpn mostly with dedicated high speed game servers @ 1-10Gbps.

    Trust zone is torrent dedicated. They got quite cheap plans but not so elite rating compared to likes of Expressvpn or Nordvpn. Servers will be udp request flooded almost all the time so speed can slow down. Hope you use the 3 day trial well, it was capped by data limit.

    Nordvpn currently has a gleam widget contest on their blog. Suggest you participate. Who knows you can be lucky there! ;)

    Just a follow up of my post. It's been a month that I've used NordVPN and i can confirm that they are very good. Speed is fast (for a VPN), the Chrome and Firefox extensions work very well (no leak), the software and apps are well designed and their support is efficient and available 24/7. Very happy of my choice. Thanks to all for your advice (y)

    Tried it a few months ago and it was pretty slow and I experienced many bugs that have probably all been resolved since that time.

    One thing I like about Nord is they're always adding a bunch of new servers.

    The "standard" prices on are 11,95$ a month, 69$ for a year and 79$ for two years (currently on sale) as seen on their order page. There is also a good promo for a 3 years subscription at 99$ at this page. I suggest you to try their 3 days trial first (it's what i did and it's a real trial with no credit card needed or other BS) that is on this page, as i think VPNs performance might be different between users based on their hardware and location.

    From what I've read, ExpressVPN is supposed to have the best speed and reliability but is pricey (99,95$ for 15 months, and that's the current sale) and AirVPN is supposed to be the best privacy wise, even though their are based in Italy (Fourteen Eyes). Windscribe is good but fairly new and probably has the best quality for the price (they have a free version and there is a lifetime sale at 29,40$ over here), but are not really considered as "premium" as the others mentioned.

    Anyway my personal experience is limited to only NordVPN and Windscribe as those are the only ones I've tried.

    Hope i helped ;)

    By the way if someone is interested in a good VPN , try Mullvad. I use it for 2 months never had a problem with him.
