ExpressVPN ranked third in our aggregated performance testing. It was more like NordVPN than Hotspot shield, in that the standard deviation was low. This means is the performance numbers were generally consistent across all testers.
Full review: Our ExpressVPN review
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, and if you make testing a priority, you can certainly determine if ExpressVPN works for you within a month. ExpressVPN even offers payment via Bitcoin. If you want to remain as anonymous as possible, Bitcoin payment makes sense.
One feature I really like is the network-wide speed test. You can tell ExpressVPN to scan its entire network and measure server speeds for each server. It takes a few minutes, but it's great for not only picking the fastest server, but also for getting a feel for network performance overall. And it has servers located in more countries (94) than any service on this list, so you'll have plenty of options to choose from.

I like ExpressVPN. It's a breeze to set up and configure. I like how you can determine server speed across the entire network -- searching, saving, and configuring locations is simple. If you're using a VPN to protect your coffee shop surfing, it works.
ExpressVPN is compatible with macOS 10.11 or later, and iOS 12 or later (manual configuration available for iOS 11 and below). You can download the iOS app on its website or through the Apple App Store, but the macOS app is only available for download from ExpressVPN's website. The iOS app doesn't support split tunneling and it's only an option on macOS versions below 11.
