Overall Satisfaction with Splashtop Enterprise

I use Splashtop to remote into Mac Pros, Macbook Pros, and Video Encoders.

Pros

  • Splashtop seems to be secure with an encrypted connection, which is a selling point to my video editing clients who need confidentiality at all endpoints.
  • Splashtop seems to use very few resources when I remote into various desktops. This is an essential feature when computing power is a necessary resource. The small footprint is a compelling selling point to my video editing clients because I can remote in and all computing power is leveraged towards rendering, video playback, and audio editing.
  • Splashtop gives the option of securing the remote environment which is one of my favorite features. I can have a mix of secure environments to choose to remote into or not.

Cons

  • Splashtop should further improve audio playback and microphone connectivity; ensuring that audio is in sync is an essential need.
  • Splashtop should further explore network bottlenecks, be it network provider settings or router settings that may hinder a lay user from remoting in. A wizard-based monitoring service to ensure that remote desktop connections are stable and how to correct said issues would be nice.
I have never had to use support so I would not know.
Splashtop has end-to-end encryption which is great.
It took me less than 10 minutes to set up all five of my remote desktop connections. I really don't recall any problems at all.
Yes - Teamviewer is a bulk program with hard to compare service offerings. Splashtop has my full attention.

Splashtop is an essential asset to my workflow. I can't imagine not having it. I would not want to use any other remote desktop software other than Splashtop. It is easy to use. You do not have to spend time configuring anything and can quickly get to work. The price point and the number of connections alone are worth the investment.
