NordVPN is slightly more complex than ExpressVPN during installation. First it will update your system, install the KB3033929 update, and also install the NET Framework 4.5.2. After these updates are completed, the client of NordVPN itself is installed. In the installation process, there will be a variety of alarms from the system management software. None of these will happen during my installation of ExpressVPN. In addition, in China, NordVPN can not be used in Win XP system, at least Win 7 system.
Customer service told me that if I used NordVPN in mainland China, I could only successfully bypass the censorship system by choosing Obfuscated Servers. But on the client I only saw a list of p2p servers, a list of standalone IP servers, etc., but did not find a separate list of obfuscated servers. Only visit the NordVPN official website server page to see confusion server list. In other words, you need to find obfuscation servers on the site and then go to the client to select these servers, this setting may not be easy for users to use.
NordVPN connection speed is normal, and it will automatically connect to some of the smaller load, geographically close servers, but these servers are not the easiest to be connected. When connecting to a HongKong server, NordVPN connected as slowly as ExpressVPN, but connected to Taiwan servers very fast. Unlike ExpressVPN, NordVPN in mainland China connects to U.S. servers on the other side of the Atlantic. However, the visit speed is indeed not too impressive. In addition, NordVPN can quickly access qq, 163，Baidu and other Chinese websites. This is much better than ExpressVPN.
When connecting to a Taiwan server on an Android phone, I was able to watch the video on Youtube very smoothly, which was as good as ExpressVPN.
