Works fine for me - I don't use it every day or 24/7, but it seems to work fine for when I do need/use it. Have had it for over a year now.

Default Re: PIA

I use it for streaming sport thats shown live in the US. I get 70Mbps speedtest results on my dads 80Mbit connection, so it's very quick, and it's very reliable.

No idea which of those options are ticked. I havn't touched anything, so whatever it defaults too...

Default Re: PIA

Same here - defaults are all unchecked for those, except IPv6 leak protection.

I'm going to be taking out a subscription with this next week. I want it so bad so I can torrent but have been as broke as a bum.
