LogMeIn remote access software review

£35 inc VAT per PC per year

Manufacturer: LogMeIn

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

LogMeIn is very simple and easy to use remote access tool, that is an ideal service for less experienced users.

LogMeIn is very simple and easy to use and is an ideal service for less experienced users. Once you’ve downloaded the software, getting started takes just a few minutes. Registration is quick and painless.

Provided your remote PC is switched on, you’ll be able to access it at logmein.com; simply enter your Windows username and password. The user interface is simple to use and clearly laid out.

We had no trouble accessing the files stored on our target system. At the touch of a button we could both open programs and edit documents. We were even able to play videos and hear system sounds from the remote machine. LogMeIn also allowed us to print files from our local machine.

LogMeIn’s File Manager makes it easy to transfer even large files to and from either system – an 18MB file took just under five minutes to transfer.

LogMeIn features a Mini Meeting and Sharing function. These services can only be used from the target system, but allowed us to offer our colleagues remote access to our desktop in order to share files.
