"Recently switched from competitor...and I'll never go back!!!"

What do you like best?

RealVNC makes the process very simple and easy to understand. The application allows me to keep a list of all the users I need to support in my office which makes connecting much quicker. And VNC Connect is a fast and secure method of remoting into my desktop from outside of the office. What I love the best is that I can use this on Linux without any special modifications. It just works!

What do you dislike?

I have been using RealVNC and VNC Connect for some time and have not found anything I dislike!

Recommendations to others considering the product

VNC Connect works with Linux, is simple to use and incredibly secure using two factor authentication. I expect that I will be a long term subscriber with RealVNC and do not ever see going anywhere else!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem I was trying to solve is being able to remote into my Linux desktop from the outside world. Not only does RealVNC solve this problem easily, it is also affordable!

"the tool with multiple connections"

What do you like best?

The tool gives to perform many functions when connecting to a host remotely, it guarantees that it can continue to connect when it loses connection. as well as the transfer of files is easier. allows copying from a desktop to the remote. Ensures that the connection is of optimum quality

What do you dislike?

The tool in certain episodes of connection tends to hang. What the program stops responding Additional that uses insecure remote connection port. What you need is a connection port customization to accept non-secure connections. since if the remote attacker knows the password he can manipulate without prior authorization

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend vnc as an effective remote desktop management tool to solve cases

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solved connection problems with the nano bridge antennas, since I connected a computer on a roof to a mini PC through vnc, the tool to monitor air traffic, additional I can access from my mobile device wherever it is to be able to manage changes in the equipment through air monitoring and control tools

What Remote Desktop solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Very happy with how everything is working"

What do you like best?

Very user friendly and easy to use. The app runs well and connects well whenever its being used. Very happy with have it has worked out for me.

What do you dislike?

The cost is a little much. But I think it is a competitive price. The hand controls could use an upgrade. And better marketing would be better because it took me a while to find this service

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this app its exactly what you want it to be and do

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for my greenhouse business so I can connect to the greenhouse controls computer and then can change and look at things from anywhere, instead of always having to go to the computer. Its especially nice when their are alarms. I can check and see if its a big problem or if it can wait. I would get a call to my phone saying their are greenhouse alarms and not be able to know what it is but now I can connect and see.

"Easy to use. Good value for money"

What do you like best?

Easy to install and easy to use for both myself as the IT bod, and for the companies general PC users.

I can remotely access PCs for maintenance and show and tell with good speeds and stability.

Company personnel can access their PCs, especially handy for moving money around in the banks over the holidays.

The cost is good value for money.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about the software. It's user-friendly and simple to access from either my home PC or on my phone with the mobile app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good value for money

"Excellent remote control"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to remotely control a number of PC's. I prefer direct access as opposed to cloud access and RealVNC Enterprise edition fits the bill perfectly.

What do you dislike?

I wish screen control lag could be reduced more, and audio please!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Able to help co-workers remotely who are less technically savy. I can control the screen and can watch what I do.

"VNC is easy as ABC"

What do you like best?

I'm the defacto IT guy at my company. It's an add-on job, and I like to spend as little time as possible doing it. VNC has been running for at least two years with no complaints, and no interaction on my part.

What do you dislike?

At this point, nothing. I don't use it, but if there were issues, I would hear about them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It works.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly, it's a benefit to our managers to be able to work from home as needed. One manager is a single mom, and uses it the most. School delays, cancellations, and sicknesses are less traumatic.

"California to Germany"

What do you like best?

Real VNC was simple to install. In fact it comes preinstalled on Raspberry Pis and it was very easy to enable it and begin using it. I work for a startup in California and we are working with a partner company in Germany. I can login to our computers in Germany from anywhere: my laptop at work, my iPad at Starbucks or even from bed with the cell phone (big time difference).

I have had no issues and have been using VNC for over 6 months. I would highly recommend it to anyone that needs simple, reliable remote access to a Raspberry computer.

What do you dislike?

I really can't think of anything that I dislike about this enabling technology.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have significantly reduced the need for international travel with the use of VNC.

"Works decently, a little slow on the refresh (mainly due to protocol more than anything else)"

What do you like best?

Software works, connects me to machines in different locations without the need to be physically present. Viewing the machine without locking it (as RDP does) is very helpful for the user if they need some guidance.

What do you dislike?

The remote connection can lag pretty badly. This makes the usefulness level go down a bit since the experience can get choppy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test out Microsoft's RDP and TeamViewer solutions as well as this. They use similar protocols but do things a bit differently, depending on use case.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote admin and support.

"VNC Connect solved my remote access needs "

What do you like best?

Following Apple's withdrawal of their flaky Back to my Mac application I started to test other commercial options. I chose VNC connect as it was easy to install and delivered a stable fast solution.

What do you dislike?

It is a little more expensive than I would like but since it delivers I cannot really complain too much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing stable fast access to my office computer from home or across the globe.

"RealVNC"

What do you like best?

Simplicity, setup once, and from that point forward, it's one click and you're connected.

What do you dislike?

Doesn't work on my ver. 1.0 iPad :-) ... honestly, I don't have any complaints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'm not a tech person, but apparently don't need to be. RealVNC does the job, and hides the complexity.

Works just as well on Windows and RaspberryPi.

What do you dislike?

Getting files from the remote machine could be more intuitive.

I use RaspberryPi based production testers for a circuit assembly that is built in Mexico. RealVNC allows the remote upgrade and monitoring of the test systems.

"Flexible affordable VNC that works well from many Devices."

What do you like best?

I like that it reasonably priced per computer that you need to control. I can control from smartphones, tablets, and Windows, Linux and Mac computers. As a technical support person, I like having the Instant support option to help out our customers and it forces them to help us install software so they are aware of what we are installing.

What do you dislike?

It needs to allow mixed connects at a reasonable price also. I could use a few direct connect licenses, but to move up to the next tier is too expensive for a small business that has a small profit margin. Installation process could be made more clear by adding a video tour of installation and setup steps. A Glossary of term could help newer users understand concepts better before they dive into setting it up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out the demos version to see what tier you need to start with.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have customers that we need to install and setup & configure barcode scanning software on their computers. The Instant support license allows us to easily do that. It restricts us from installing unless the customer helps us, so they know what we are installing on their system. (Professional) Owner approving payments from his smartphone.

"Much better and cheaper than our previous remote support tool"

What do you like best?

Very easy to setup and use

Half the price of our previous remote support tool, GoToAssist (now called Logmein)

What do you dislike?

Nothing! Its been a simple process from first contacting VNC to having the trial, to now having it all up and running

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use VNC connect to support a number of home based users. It's so quick and easy for us in IT and the end user to start up a remote session, and very straightforward when in the session.

"clear design, fast service, stable, fair prices"

What do you like best?

The clear useabilty is one of the most things i love at realvnc. I´ve switched from another application and i ´m very pleased with it. This at lower pricepoint is a huge timesaver every day.

Because of my differnt plattforms i know that it´s a big point. that all works without crashing.I don´t like, that i had to pay for my additional private Rasperry pi´s wich are only for smart home .

It feels on my i Pad like a windows / Full Mac experience, so that this takes the 12.9 iPad to the next level of using. What is really usefull is that after the session the workstation is not log out like my last solution. This a the next timesaver wich i really love.

What do you dislike?

it´s almost perfect for me, but i only use it for about 3 Computer in a small business.I don´t like, that i had to pay for my additional private Rasperry pi´s wich are only for smart home .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it, it´s really timesaving

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for a ceantral printing station and on the road to get connected with my mac.

Even on my iPad Pro 12.9 it is a great advandtage to get connected and work really well on my Mac, not even for emergency puposes.

This is a much less expensive solution against buying my printing software 3 Times if i use it only once semmless.

"Excellent software for remote desktop access"

What do you like best?

I just purchased a Professional year subscription and love the easy way to work with RVNC, for sure I recommend it 100% for remote desktop access. I like it to be secure, very easy to use and offers a very fast connection to my office PC's Desktop.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the software tell me that RVNC is not currently istening for Cloud connections and I have to ask someone to close and reopen the VNC Server in my office's PC and the problem is solved, but hope there is an update that can solve that problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check prices, security and reliability of all the possible suppliers and you will see that RVNC is the best option, It is ver easy to use and runs very smoothly. If you want a reliable, secure and fast remote desktop connection software, RVNC is for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I connect to my office computer from home or business trips with my laptop.

I don't have to be at my office or call a colleague to get information from my PC, I can easily connect to it via RVNC and get the information I need right away.

"Simple to use interface, and extremely cost effective"

What do you like best?

It is extremely simple to send the link and the nine digit code and have instantaneous access to the remote computer. It is much more cost effective than LogMeIn and TeamViewer.

I can't think of anything I dislike about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great alternative to LogMeIn

"Great but could always use some work"

What do you like best?

The ability to connect to users in a separate office via the internet with no tunnels needed between offices. Also love the team view of all my machines with the ability to rename them. Saving passwords is nice as well with the new viewer. Also the interface seems to be a bit more modern which is always nicer on the eyes yet everything is still easy to access.

What do you dislike?

I dont like that the new VNC connect/viewer perfers the WAN connection over a LAN connection. Have many machines on a LAN and also a MPLS connection that used to go over those pipes instead of going out to the internet and then connecting to the remote machine that way. Also i wish the VNC viewer was bundled with VNC Connect so that we could just install one package on each machine opposed to 2. It is nice for our users to have the viewer on their PC in case im on their machine and need to login to another machine from that users desk.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Way better and easier to use than other solutions that provide RDS services over the web. This allows for local and remote use without the need of tunnels between offices. Also opposed to RDS, the user can see what you are doing which makes remote support much much easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had an office in PCB FL USA that was hit hard by the last storm. We were unable to get an internet connection with static/public IP addresses so VNC Connect fixed the remote support problem by using the internet for VNC and not relying on direct connections.

"Use VNC to access & use SoildWorks on my Work Computer from anywhere."

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use, the ease of setup, and the simple way you use REAL VNC...it is almost transparent. It is a great way to collaborate with remote consultants and sub-contractors. It is very robust and secure.

What do you dislike?

Well if there is anything to complain about REAL VNC it can be the cost. If they could reduce the cost it would definitely be appreciated. But at the same time what you get for the cost is very acceptable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to access your work computers through a cost effective secure virtual network VNC is the application for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can work from anywhere using my SolidWorks and any other programs installed on my work computer. Like wise I can be at work and my employees can work and access all the CAD files for collaboration on various projects

"A must have for traveling business professionals"

What do you like best?

Being able to log into my office computer from literally anywhere in the world is a dream come true. I can't emphasize enough how useful this is while on the go. And it couldn't be easier to setup.

What do you dislike?

It's not easy to come up with a critique because the program truly does work so well. In fact, I can't think of a single one!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't hesitate. Your only regret will be that you didn't start using this awesome tool sooner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Real VNC - our experience"

What do you like best?

There are so many positives, ease of use, low cost and reliable.We use it to enable our remote engineers to complete paperwork on line at our head office . this means that all paper work can be completed the same day and speeds up the process of invoicing our clients. The connection is always stable and we have never had a dropped connection, other than when its been at the fault of our ISP.

What do you dislike?

nothing to dislike at all, it is very easy to use and gives a reliable and fast connection. The price suits our budget too.The set up was very easy and pretty much idiot proof. We did have a small operator issue right at the very start, but this was rectified instantly by using the online help facility.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It enables us to have seamless connectivity with our remote based engineers.

"Easy to use and set up"

What do you like best?

I love that I don't have to be in the office to work on a company computer. It's easy to get on the office machine from home.

What do you dislike?

It was easy to setup, but the office staff would've had a hard time doing it. No real complaints, but if I hadn't used one of these products before, I'd have been confused which piece of the software I needed on which machine.

"No other remote desktop app compares VNC Connect"

What do you like best?

Simple, easy to use user interface. Reliable connection and easy cloud & lan set up.

What do you dislike?

Some of the simple changes are classed as "expert" and overly difficult to locate. For example changing which monitor/screen you want to display on remote screen, while not too difficult to do, would be something that I would like to do more readily, as a quicker menu option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is no better remote desktop software in my opinion. It's versatile, easily scalable and comes with a ton of useful features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote control of our screen A/V system. Allows anyone to connect to the system internally or externally to the network and troubleshoot issues easily and readily. We have a comms room with multiple mac mini's in the distribute images to projection, TV screens around the building and to our IMAG system. We can connect from anywhere in the centre to amend, control and set up images. Without this we'd spend all day running between locations to make simple changes. Quite simply, it's saved hours of my life!

"Excelent Remote service."

What do you like best?

With Real Vnc I can tap into my work from home without actually bringing it home with me. I design large CAD assemblies that require a lot of space. Trying to transfer files from one system to the next is time consuming. With Real Vnc I just log into my system and I'm off and running right where I left off. No hassles to deal with.

What do you dislike?

I can't say there is much to dislike about the software. It's user friendly and simple to access either from home or on the go with the mobile app. Now if I could utilize my space mouse from my remote computer that would set this software on top.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend this product if you are looking for a secure remote software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to pick up my work right where I left off is the best part about it. Like I said before, large files don't transfer easily so Real Vnc makes things much more managable.

"Reliable software and excellent service"

What do you like best?

I like purpose-built software best, and RealVNC falls firmly into that category. Their policy settings are straightforward and easy to manage, once support gave me the analogy of using the cloud location as a map to the building and using group policy or local settings as the doorway in. These lines can get blurry in other packages, but not here. RealVNC is really easy to deploy and showing our teams how to use it has been a snap. They are also transparent about security and care a great deal about maintaining a high standard there.

What do you dislike?

The cloud management portal could show a little more information (like when the last connect time was) and it is not aware of computer names being recycled, so one does have to manage stale computer accounts. These are smaller offenses IMO, and their support added changes to these to their suggestion box.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're happy with no-frills, purpose-built software that is stable, then RealVNC is an excellent choice. Not to many unexpected hobbies with this stuff!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Confirmed access, where users allow our connections, with a few exceptions.

"It just works! Simple remote connections"

What do you like best?

With VNC our IT staff can assist end users or connect to unattended workstations and interact directly as if they were at the console--seeing exactly what is on the screen. In addition, the connections are fast! Installation and setup within any environment is quick and simple, and does not add overhead.

Recent improvements to the product include a viewer interface that allows you to retain a directory of connections, making it even easier to support hundreds of terminals.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike. We have been using RealVNC for at least 10 years and have no complaints.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our IT department can support remote branch employees while seeing and interacting with their computer exactly as it appears to the remote worker. They are logged in, and can interactively work through issues--all through a very simple to administer solution.

"Fantastic customer service on top of a great product!"

What do you like best?

Not only does Real VNC cost substantially less than their competitors, it is extremely easy to install and use. The customer service was excellent, with Richard answering my queries quickly and in detail through email and telephone conversations.

The restrictions for access to certain computers is fantastic. Such a simple idea but very useful where sensitive data is concerned. There is also no cap on the number of users that can be registered in my "Team" which is ideal for the work I conduct. We have many users that require off-site access to our facilities. I enjoy the different teams that can be set up - this allows me to quickly add users to have access only to the correct computers.

What do you dislike?

Current versions not compatible with older Linux operating systems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend getting in contact with a representatitive at Real VNC as I had a pleasant experience with lots of helpful advice.

The trial is a great idea to see if Real VNC will work for you. When we purchased the subscription it was a seamless transition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use multiple computers for the operation of imaging machinery in a clean facility. Weekly Quality Assurance checks are required and can now be performed with a coffee at my desk rather than "suiting up" and entering the facility. This is very convenient and allows for a better Monday!

We can give users remote access to a computer with specialist software for the analysis of their data. As our University is split into 3 different campuses, this means users do not need to spend time and money on travelling to our site.

We can restrict access per each user, ensuring they only have access to the machines that they are permitted to use. This is especially useful for sensitive data.

"SOLID REMOTE ACCESS"

What do you like best?

The application works! Nothing complicated about connecting. Easy to navigate. New Beta app has amazing speed!

What do you dislike?

The initial setup took some effort. Support was fantastic, but a setup script to handle router modifications would have been ideal.

Unfortunately, the ease of using this product means that I can access important data from anywhere! There is no excuse for ignoring important job functions!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an application engineer, it is important to stay on top of projects, even when I am away from the office.

"Excellent solution to a development collaboration problem."

What do you like best?

Software is easy to deploy and setup with just the right amount of security features and options to make it secure but not overly so.

What do you dislike?

Multi-Display features when using very large monitors are a bit tricky to get working properly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Was looking for a way to allow remote users to simultaneously log into a PC and collaborate. RealVNC addresses this issue nicely and affordably.

The problem in connectivity can occur when a good communication link is not available for it, which generates slowness or very constant drops at the time of connection

"VNC Works and is Affordable"

What do you like best?

The product works and is affordable. Being able to respond to a request for help by opening up a VNC Connect session is priceless. No more unnecessary travel to the client's location for a 5 minute solution. Being able to have multiple sessions running simultaneously greatly improves efficiency.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much has come up that I don't like.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started using VNC Connect last year when a client I had been working for a while needed more support as well as the ability to allow their staff to work remotely on occasion. I looked into the competition along with VNC Connect. I found that for providing remote support which includes installing software, managing updates and subscriptions as well as instruction VNC had all the features I needed and and had robust administration tools. All of my requirements have been fulfilled by VNC Connect. On top of satisfying the client, I also found VNC Instant Support would solve my own needs for supporting occasional and new clients.

"Excellent, trusted VNC solution."

What do you like best?

Have used RealVNC for many years and really like the cloud-based version. Interface is easy to use and pricing is very reasonable for such a well-known name.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, happy with RealVNC as it is and will continue to use over other solutions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

'Head-less' systems around the company are much easier to administer using VNC. It also useful for remote control of a system that you want others to observe whilst the system is being controlled, you cannot do this with RDP.

"VNC for remote programming Raspberry Pi's. "

What do you like best?

VNC allows me to remote into my headless raspberry pi micro-controllers. Its almost as if I had them right in front of me connected to the monitor without having to purchase a monitor for each micro-controller.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the steep price but in the end its worth it. I couldnt see myself programming my Raspberry Pi's any other way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

VNC is pretty bad ass. Give it a go if you need to connect!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My desk is not that large, i already have 2 wide monitors. I couldnt imagine having a monitor for each computer I program. Having VNC saves me; space, money and time.

"Easy to Use and Affordable"

What do you like best?

The product is easy to use and affordable. I have it set up for use at a client who needs to always be connected to another computer. I've never seen a loss of connectivity.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I didn't like was a lack of remote printing. But at the time of this review they are still working on this feature, so it's possible that that could change soon.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since we need to be able to access an inventory system quickly, remoting into a dedicated computer at another location is much easier. The best benefit is having a window into the other computer that is clear as if I was there in person.

I like the way VNC has priced its products, I can add a computer to my premium account at any given time and enjoy the discounts offered in the next tier if I reached the threshold.

What do you dislike?

I would like to open multiple windows in tabs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't waste time shopping for a better remote desktop application.

"Great Remote Service software for a great price!!!"

What do you like best?

I love that I can connect to a clients device and leave NO program besides a disposable .exe file. So far it’s proved to be a very efficient program and super easy to use. It gets passed firewalls when I remote from work using my phone and connects fairly fast. I love the program aka Viewer how it gives you your internal computers then allows you to instantly support others up to three devices and cross platform. Beautiful website but complex.

What do you dislike?

The website was kinda of confusing as others have said I just contacted the sales team and they gave me the break down that CONNECT is the Server that administers the connection but it runs in the background and the VIEWER is the one that you would use to actually connect/see other devices and connect either internally or via instant support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your looking for an affordable and reliable Remote Service for either Personal or Business get Real VNC. It would be your best decision possible since making your business or small start up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It’s simple to guide people to download the disposable app and then to connect to my clients. I’m solving issues from cleaning out OS’s to being connected for literally half a day to solve an Office installation via 365 problem.

"Very user friendly system"

What do you like best?

RealVNC is very easy to set up and use. the prices are very competitive and affordable compared to their competition. I tested four other systems over a three month period and RealVNC came out tops on all counts.

Support is really good, they come back to you usually same day or quickly the next day.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the way it ummm well, the only thing i can think of is when logging in to a computer with multiple monitors. It treats them as one big screen. Besides that, nothing to not like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DO IT!!! The pricing structure is great, as you pay per computer and not per connection. It is good value for money.

If you're connecting to a PC with two or more screens, you may have to disable one of them, as it can get confusing. That is unless your two screens are the same size.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work for a few clients and can't be everywhere at the same time, so i need to log in to a client from another client's office or from home.. It's perfect for that. I have saved travel time and am able to give answers to people much quicker.
