Secure and responsible, cost-effective when compared to TeamViewer

5.0 7 months ago

Pros:

For a remote desktop product, GoToMyPC is a secure, responsive, and feature-rich product, allowing me to work as productively as if I were sitting at my multiple monitor setup at the remote office. GoToMyPC has all the features I need to work remotely and is less expensive that TeamViewer, which continues to raise their prices every year and squeeze out the small business.

Cons:

Price for one PC has gone up, but it is still affordable for now.

The best for remote access

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: I've used quite a few other remote desktop programs, but for ease of use, and features, I haven't found anything as good as GoToMyPC. It has all the features that I need, such as remote printing, screen blanking and dual monitor support. I can also use it wherever I need, and don't have to worry about purchasing a bunch of licenses if I need to use different PC's to access my work computer.

Pros:

It's extremely reliable and easy to use. The fact that I can use it anywhere with any PC is exactly what I need.

Cons:

Occasionally, especially with software that converts to a PDF before printing, it can take longer than I would like for the print to start printing.

25+ AND COUNTING

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Have used gotomypc since about 1998. Have never had one major issue and when I did have a question or small issue it was promptly and professionally dealt with by a real person. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone who has the need to remotely connect with his or her computer.

Pros:

Ease of Log-In and use. Ability to File Transfer. Ability to Remote Print.

Cons:

Annual cost is significantly higher then when first subscribed, but what is not?

Past its prime

3.0 6 months ago

Comments: It enabled our users to access their computers remotely, but it is a very no frills experience and feels archaic compared to the competition while being sold for a similar price. It is clear that this is simply legacy software that GoTo offers to those that haven't thought to test the market.

Pros:

At the end of the day GoToMyPC will allow you to access a PC remotely, so it does accomplish what it sets out to do.

Cons:

I have tested and used various remote desktop software and GoToMyPC is probably the most basic and feature poor of them all. The entire thing feels like it hasn't been in active development in at least 10 years. Lacks the ability to open remote monitors in their own windows is a huge missing feature that any modern remote desktop software should be embarrassed to lack and was the number 1 complaint from my users.

GoToMyPC is a huge asset to my work routine.

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: I have been using GoToMyPC for well over 10 years. I feel it is a great application. No matter where I am I can log into my desk PC and my 3 monitors just as if I am sitting in my office. As long as I have a basic internet connection in both locations I can work uninterrupted for hours if need be. I can be at home, at a client, the airport, at sea, anywhere. I can log in to my desk from my iPhone if I need to in a pinch. My 3 screens will be small but I can easily zoom in where I need to see. Jumping from screen to screen is easy. It is no difference than being at my desk except my busy office does not distract me. It’s a good option when I have an important project that I prefer to finish away from the office. Over the years it has been a huge asset for me and I would recommend it to any frequent computer user that can benefit from remote access to their office or home computer.

Pros:

Simple to use and log in. good support when needed which is infrequently. Reliable and consistent function. Only a basic wired or wireless connection is needed.

Cons:

Prices took a large jump few years ago, but they eventually dropped back down to a reasonable level. Discounts were offered to me by their sales team.
