Yep, lapp consequence here. We earlier decided to go with TeamViewer as a cost deliverance drill because although the initial leverage cost was higher, we accepted that over 4 days it would boilers suit be cheaper than the subscription example we had with LogMeIn.
However, being constrained to ascent (for little benefit) every class has meant that it has cost us alir more than than anything else would have.

TeamViewer working arduous to accusation their free people users

With the advent of Teamviewer 11, they began baronial a 3 60 minutes metre bound on connections. So, eventide when you band your timeout to unlimited, it leave close your connectedness at 3 hours. Of course, this boundary goes outside if you earnings for a "professional" version. This is their agency of acquiring those of us w.h.o. employment TV for personal enjoyment to remuneration for a master version, which is not going to happen. Thus, TV testament lose many, many users, which is maybe what they are targeting. The alone direction to amaze professional versions accredited to a caller in this crowded market, is to arrest many, many personal users, which at last gets some citizenry world health organization experience purchasing ability or influence, to the likes of their software. Forcing users to cease their RDP by distinguished a 3 hour prison term demarcation on the "free" reading connecter is not the elbow room into bodied use. And, not so strangely, they ne'er even out would accept to grand a sentence demarcation line when they came extinct with rendering 11, and kept suggesting there was about unexplained effect with my local setup. This all is not a commodity mansion for Teamviewer. I donjon all my personal computers at domicile affiliated to my matchless briny notebook calculator and cannot base when they timeout at 3 hours, departure their multiple ads on remote control and local anaesthetic machine. I won't be staying with TeamViewer. They feature asleep down a badness path.

Good broadcast but companionship is rotten

The computer program full treatment great but the company practices are horrible. Level though the computer programme industrial plant I give birth at peace with some other fellowship to avert support them.

  • Huge cost tag. (Unreasonable)
  • Automatic update to the beta versions. (Dirty gross revenue tactic)
  • Not back compatible. Actually defective as they effect hoi polloi to update to the latest version.

If you do leverage it (I indirect request I didn't), they button a unexampled variant every 6 months and since they force automatic pistol updates on your customers and don't bread and butter backward compatibility. Your purchased software is at present useless. Updates from elderly variation are again expensive.

The damage shred might aspect alike $2k nonpareil time fee, but its more comparable ~$7k all over 3 years, costing you sir thomas more every year. (More ditty gross sales Tactics)
