CactusVPN is a good service. It has great speeds in the U.S. and UK, making its lower-tiered plans an excellent buy if all you need is one of those countries. The company also has a solid privacy policy, and a good desktop program.

You don't have to pay so much money on a regular VPN service, CactusVPN will give you anything you want with its reliable and well optimized servers.

VPN Analysis

The service is easy to use, works straight away, and connects quickly. The Smart DNS service is also good to have, so it is worth taking out the full VPN plus Smart DNS package. The main criticism I have of CactusVPN is that it has a small network and is more expensive than its Romanian rivals.

PCWorld

Solid privacy and good US/UK speeds

from PCWorld

CactusVPN has the right privacy promises you need, and fairly good pricing. The company also offers Smart DNS services if you need to get around regional restrictions with a set-top box. The Windows app is nothing fancy, but there's still some tweaking available for users who like to have a choice about VPN protocol and app behavior.

Cloudwards

A fast-ish, decent service that still has some growing to do

from Cloudwards

CactusVPN is an affordable VPN service that allows users to quickly and easily protect themselves on the Internet. Netflix users can enjoy content that they normally have access to, but users looking to view Netflix content from other regions are out of luck. BBC’s iPlayer, on the other hand, is perfectly accessible through CactusVPN.

CactusVPN is a great service for beginners, it is easy to set up, is very fast, and has a great low-cost service. The encryption is reliable, and everything is easy to understand.  CactusVPN is great for someone new to VPN services and just wants some added security online, but those who will use more from the internet and expect to use P2P software regularly may find this option to be too restrictive.

Best VPN

A contender VPN service based in Moldova with lots of plus points

from Best VPN

Its privacy policy is good (no usage logs), it uses excellent encryption, it proved very fast in our speed tests, and it is cheap (even for the more fully featured package). Add to this some great customer support, and that has the only VPN client we have come across to feature an Applications Killer, and we’re sold!

A VPN service that offers a wide choice of plans

from TechRadar

CactusVPN has its limitations, including the very short US/Europe-only list of servers, but what you do get provides reliable performance and is great value for money.
